Please describe your problem. On my forum The breadcrumbs aren't how I want them. I am having trouble figuring out what code I need to change to get it how I want. Right now it goes:

Back to Virago 'Tech Articles' Portal Virago Help Forums

I have Board3 Portal installed and would like my breadcrumbs on both the top and bottom through the entire forum to just say :

Virago Help Forums

In the breadcrumbs instead of what it says now. It can be seen at:
http://viragohelp.com/phpbb3/index.php

I would also like to be able to change the link it uses for that "Virago Help Forums". If anyone can point me to where these setting are at and what I should change it would be great. I have already customized things a bit so I got a rough idea of how things work. If someone could just explain how the forum decides to grab them links and where in the code it can be changed. Many thanks.

That is because you have added that to ACP > GENERAL > Board Configuration > Board settings >
  • Main website URL
    Main website text
For removing the portal link you would need to seek support in the topic for that extension, [RC] Board3 Portal 2.1.0-RC2

That points to the index page of the board, as it should. What do you want to change it to?

Thank you for your reply. Yes I know how to remove the first bit by the board settings. I just posted a question in the board3 forum area.. thank you for pointing that out. LOL not sure why I didnt do that to begin with. I guess I just figured I could take care of it all by editing a few files in the template possibly.
I do still want to know how I would go about changing how the breadcrumbs work and where it has the starting link set in it. I understand it chooses the main beginning of the forum then goes from there depending on what forum areas you go into. I guess what I am asking is what file has the bit of script that does this?
Thanks.

There are four user template files which include the link and the path is defined in /includes/functions.php.
