Description of problem

Hello! I wanted my Portal to become "Home". I succeeded in changing the name of it in some way but I can't do the same with the actual Forum home directory. I copied the Home logo and changed the Portal icon, but as the screenshot shows, it gets bugged and the icon is never shown.

The marked home link is the link to the Forum and I want to change the name. I tried but the name box is greyed out.

@Zakaria Ahmed
Did you try hiding the actual Home button and adding a new one through the ACP?

If you want to change the default name of "Home" to your own text, add this Javascript

jQuery('a.mainmenu[href^="/forum"]').html('NEW TITLE');

Position: In All Pages

You can change in the code, the '/forum', for the link of your navigation bar that you want to change

/portal , /search ,etc Wink
