Solved How do I make one of my forum categories an HTML link?

Post by Brad38 on December 30th 2008, 9:10 am

Hi Everyone,

I hope someone will understand this, but I'm trying to turn a particular forum category into an HTML link. Right now and with the version I'm using, Phpbb3, my forum categories are not clickable links. I would like to have one of them be. I want it so when you click on the category title, it's a direct link to that particular forum only.

Can someone please assist me with this?

Thank you and I suck at this HTML, code, script stuff. Sad

aww.. i understand you but i don't think it's possible.
try this

admin panel >> display >> structure and hierarchy >> Split categories on index : >> Full

it's kinda the same Wink

or use a widget.

When you make a category,
Category name:
Add this
Code:
<a href="URL LINK">CATEGORY NAME</a>

He asked how to make a category of a forum clickable so that it redirects to some other link, thats what the above code i posted does.

Thanks Nimiel and Sanket. Sanket's suggestion worked. Smile I just need one other bit to add to the code you provided, I want the link to be bold and white, it's showing up a different colour than I want.

Thanks again for understanding and helping me both of you. Smile

Code:
<a href="URL LINK"><b><font color="#FFFFFF">CATEGORY NAME</font></b></a>
<a href="URL LINK"><b><font color="#FFFFFF">CATEGORY NAME</font></b></a>

Hope this is perfect.

Thanks Sanket, I got it to work and I knew how to put the color in I wanted, just need the script or code.

Thanks SO much, Sanket, and thanks too Nimiel. I didn't want to change my hierarchies, just make the category a clickable link.

THANKS AGAIN GUYS! :wouhou: Very Happy Hello
