In progress How to customize Navigation Bar, change button?

Post by jan4jam on June 24th 2015, 2:51 pm

Good morning,

I will get back to you asap after my sons ceremony tonight, I am wondering is there a way I can replace the button on my navigation called "usergroups" to something else, or may I "add" just one more button?

I do not need a whole new navigation bar I just want to put a button there for something that goes along with my forum, and if I may how do I go about creating that button or replacing the user group one with the one I want and then how do I add the information that goes along with the button, Make sense??

Thanks have a great day,
Jan

AP > Display > Pics Management > Advance mode > goto the pics you want to add, either in the Forum Icons,Button etc,
goto the pics, select "See more images", you'll some Customized icons buttons. If you want to add yours, use the "Upload", when hosted, copy URL and add at the gap of the place you want to change. For Topic Icons, they can be the "Solved, Completed, In progress Icon" you see when you want to post. Clarified?

When I followed your direction above I got as far as pics management in advanced mode and do not see the select "See more images" as you stated in your directions is all?

When you get there, check, under the "Upload", click anything inscribed "see more" or "see images" there. If that didn't work, goto to www.servimg.com, create an account, upload files, when hosted, copy the URL and paste it in the field you want in the Pics Managements

Thank you I appreciate all your time and patience I do not seem to be able to grasp this. No worries. You may close this request, it is not that important just wanted to add a Bipolar FAQ but not replace the actual FAQ for the forum.

It is okay again I appreciate all you all do=D

Have a great day,
Jan

Good morning,

Thank you all I did add to the FAQ in the Menu Bar=D

One more question though I copied and pasted it in and it is all together no paragraphs so i did what you told me to do when I did the auto welcome letter I went back in and did it over and manually typed it in, and it is still all one paragraph to make this easier to understand it is a list of questions about Bipolar Disorder like "What is Bipolar Disorder? and then the answer and so on etc..

You told me how to before make it so the welcome letter had the appropriate spacing, is there a way I can do the same here like a button in the Admin that needs to be checked etc.?

If not it is okay it is there, it is just a question and answer type thing and I would like each question and answer to be appropriately spaced is all? Not all one paragraph so to speak?

Thanks for all your support have a great day god Bless,
Jan

In the faw it should appear exactly as typed. To avoid confusion, make sure you make a seperate question and answer for each one.

Or is there a specific issue you need help with? Perhaps a screenshot of the issue could help us?

Good morning below is what it is suppose to look like but it doesn't once applied to FAQ like I said it is all one paragraph no separation I do not know how to do a screen shot but it is like this in the FAQ when I was creating it but not like this on the FAQ after applying it again okay here it is below

We have prepared this guide for people new to Bipolar disorder. It is a brief overview of the basic elements of the disorder and addresses Frequently Asked Questions (*FAQ*)!

WHAT IS BIPOLAR DISORDER?
WHO GETS IT AND HOW?
HOW IS IT DIAGNOSED?
WHAT IS DEPRESSION?
WHAT IS MANIA?
WHAT IS HYPO MANIA?
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BIPOLAR I AND BIPOLAR II?
WHAT IS RAPID CYCLING?
WHAT IS MIXED STATE?
IS IT CURABLE?
HOW IS IT TREATED?
WHERE DO I GO FOR HELP?
IS HOSPITALIZATION NECESSARY?
WHAT CAN FAMILY MEMBERS DO TO HELP?

WHAT IS BIPOLAR DISORDER?

Bipolar Disorder, the modern term for manic- depressive disorder, is a serious medical condition chemically and biologically based in the brain. A simple description is that the disorder is like a malfunction regulator of the brain's chemicals that manifests as abnormal behavior in terms of mood swings between manic states, depressive states and sometimes mixed states. Although environmental and/or social conditions contribute to a mood swing or state that is uncontrollable by the patient.

WHO GETS IT AND HOW?

Formal statistics indicate there are 2 million Americans or about 1% of the population that have the have the disorder. However, experts in the field are now beginning to believe that the figure is more likely 7%. It affects all races and sex equally. Bipolar is not contagious or a disease. Little is known of the cause but hereditary factors are believed to be involved.

HOW IS IT DIAGNOSED?

Bipolar Disorder is difficult to diagnose because many of the symptoms mimic other disorders or conditions such as Thyroid malfunctioning and it's onset is usually during the late teens when radical behavior is common Diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder must be made by a Mental Health Professional and fall within the diagnostic criteria of the DAM V published by the American Psychiatric Association.

WHAT IS DEPRESSION?

Everyone has felt depression at some point in their lives. However, if the depression lasts more than two weeks and doesn't seem to be proportional to a cause or attached to a cause at all, then more than likely the person is experiencing a Major Depression. Typically, Bipolar people find themselves unable to get out of bed for days at a time and may bypass personal hygiene. Major/Clinical Depression can be dangerous because it creates an overwhelming sense of worthlessness and desperation that makes conditions ripe for suicidal thoughts and actions.

WHAT IS MANIA?

Mania is best described by the symptoms. They include insomnia, pressured or rapid speech, grandiosity. Typical behavior patterns are uncontrollable spending, sexual promiscuity as well as other risky behavior with no thought of consequences. Sometimes people in a manic state can become psychotic. lose of reality, and in extreme cases can become delusional.

WHAT IS HYPO MANIA?

Hypo Mania means small or mild. Hypo Mania is a mild mania. Hypo manic symptoms are basically the same but are generally confined to only a few and there are no psychotic or delusional features.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BIPOLAR I AND BIPOLAR II?

The difference is basically the degree of mania. Both have depressive episodes but bipolar II only experience Hypo manic episodes and not full blown mania.

WHAT IS RAPID CYCLING?

The time it takes to swing from a depression to a mania and back is considered a cycle. Normally a cycle occurs over years, but a cycle can go as quick as within a few months, days or even hours. This is known as Rapid cycling which can be especially debilitating to the patient and if often induced by some anti depressants.

WHAT IS MIXED STATE?

A mixed state is when the patient experiences symptoms of both mania and depression at the same time. An example would be rapid thoughts, which is manic, but those thoughts are of death and suicide which is depressive.

IS IT CURABLE?

No. Once the disorder develops it's there for life and must be dealt with otherwise it typically gets more severe over time. However, with the use of therapy and modern medications the Bipolar person can lead a fairly normal life. Today, research and development of new treatments and medications is active and ongoing making it easier and easier to deal with.

HOW IS IT TREATED?

Therapy and medications are the key to controlling Bipolar disorder. A drug regimen is needed first to offset the chemical imbalance in the brain, reduce or eliminate the mood swings and provide balance. Normally the core of a drug regimen is a mood stabilizer. Typically this has been Lithium. However, in the last few decades Anticonvulsants, such as Depakote, have been discovered to be effective mood stabilizers as well. Sometimes in addition to mood stabilizers, anti-depressants are prescribed as well as anti psychotics, It is important to know that there are a variety of all these types of medications available and no one responds exactly the same to them in terms of their effectiveness and side effects. So it may take time to find the right medication to work for the patient.

Other than medications, therapy is also necessary to help control the disorder. Bipolar disorder primarily because of the negative behaviors the mood swings create, is a breeding ground for developing deep rooting feelings of regret, remorse and guilt. Also, stress can trigger mood swings. Therefore, environmental factors are important to control by setting boundaries to avoid them and to develop cognitive behaviors that help to cope with them. Also, there are issues with acceptance and the dependence on medications to maintain balance.

WHERE DO I GO FOR HELP?

Psychiatrist are medical doctors that specialize in psychiatric disorders and are the ones who primarily prescribe drugs. Many of them also provide talk therapy but generally that is done by a psychologist who holds a PH.D. or a therapist / mental health counselor who has a masters level education. To find these professionals that specialize in mood disorders, contact your local mental health agency or hospital. There are also on line doctor finders provided by the American Medical Association and The American Psychological Association.

IS HOSPITALIZATION NECESSARY?

It might be, if the patient is in a psychotic delusion or suicide state, hospitalization may be necessary to get the patient balanced. This is usually attainable in a matter of days, but in some cases it may take weeks or months. Hospitalization should not be considered a shameful thing. It is important to get back to a normal state to control the disorder and live with it. Hospitalization, if needed, may not only occur at the point of diagnosis but at different times when treatment drastically fails.

WHAT CAN FAMILY MEMBERS DO TO HELP?

Patience, understanding, and support are the main thing a family member can do. This is not always easy, One helpful key is to remember that the behaviors of the patient are because of the disorder and not because who they are. Another important function is to help create and protect a nurturing stress free environment. The disorder is just as rough on the family member as the patient so to be supportive is mutually beneficial. However, it is important tat the patient lives a normal life filled with responsibility. What can be considered a loving and caring gesture can easily become enabling and prevent the patient to full cope with their disorder. It is ultimately their responsibility to control the disorder, so they must have to cope and live withe the consequences of their actions. A family member is actually doing a dis service to the patient if their always bailing them out of situations, such as over spending.

I am not sure if the FAQ page is capable of line breaks and stuff like that or not. I think it might be only intended for 'short and sweet' answers.


I don't know if the FAQ page supports html code or not. Otherwise I would suggest trying the html tag for line break which is:
Code:
<b />



However, if it does not support html it won't work.

Try inserting it wherever you want to start a new paragraph.

Again though, not sure if it supports html or not, so it may or may not work.
