'Actions' always open?

Post by ShadowSwept on March 24th 2011, 6:43 am

Is there a way to make the 'Actions' menu (view posts since last visit, view your posts, etc) always open, or remove it and place some of the options elsewhere on the page?
If nothing else, can it be made into a drop-down menu instead of a popup? I just want to better integrate it into the page, as it feels a bit awkward and unprofessional as is, and these are some of the most used functions on the forum.

Hi,

So you have an actions box underneath the view last post, your posts ect?
I'm sure the answer is an easy yes - as you've got templates we can move it anywhere you want Smile
Could you give us the URL of your forum please, and also, where you want to move the action box to?

My forum is at http://valkarianknights.forumotion.com, it is still under construction, so there are no members yet.
If you look on the homepage, just above the forum categories and below the nav bar, there are 'Your last visit...', 'Current date/time...' on the left, and 'View posts since last visit', 'View your posts', and 'View unanswered post' on the right. This is perfect, though I'd like to change the font/size/color, and remove the 'View unanswered post', and possibly use images instead of text.

However, when you enter a thread everything changes, and there's now a Share|Actions function on the right that opens a popup menu. I don't like this at all, and want this section of the threads to appear as it does on the homepage, including making the 'New Thread' and 'Reply' buttons only appear on the bottom.

To remove the "View unanswered post", please go to:

1. Administration Panel (advanced mode)
2. Display Tab
3. General (on the left, under Templates)
4. Click on the modify sign () for the template index_box
5. Replace its content with this:

Code:
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0" align="center">
   <tr>
      <td valign="bottom">
         <!-- BEGIN switch_user_logged_in -->
         <span class="gensmall">{LAST_VISIT_DATE}<br />
         {CURRENT_TIME}<br />
         </span>
         <!-- END switch_user_logged_in -->
         <div class="nav"><a class="nav" href="{U_INDEX}">{L_INDEX}</a>{NAV_CAT_DESC}</div>
      </td>
      <td class="gensmall" align="right" valign="bottom">
         <!-- BEGIN switch_user_logged_in -->
         <a class="gensmall" href="{U_SEARCH_NEW}">{L_SEARCH_NEW}</a><br />
         <a class="gensmall" href="{U_SEARCH_SELF}">{L_SEARCH_SELF}</a><br />
         <!-- END switch_user_logged_in -->
      </td>
   </tr>
</table>
<!-- BEGIN catrow --><!-- BEGIN tablehead --><table class="forumline" width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0">

That fixes that issue, but how do I get rid of the 'Share|Actions' function and make the index box as it appears on the home page remain the same on all pages?
