Navigation Bar

Post by tony51 » Wed Dec 10, 2008 2:44 am

I run a website and would like to use PHPBB on it. I would like to make PHPBB look a little more like part of the board, so how would I add the navigation bar? By navigation bar, I mean the line on this site with the following choices (About Downloads Customize.. and so on)

Thanks,

You can modify the overall_header.html of your phpBB styles to add the HTML of your site's navigation/header.

Can you give me an example of how to add menus to the header using the overall_header.html ? I tried an I couldn't see any of my changes.

Thanks,

You'll need to refresh the template in the ACP under the Styles tab.

Is there a WYSIWYG editor that I could use to add the navigation buttons? I've tried front page and in the process really messed things up. I've used cut and paste and ended up with navigation "buttons" looking like this:

* Home
* Informaton
* Rules
in other words, they appear as a vertical list. I looked through the mod database and couldn't find anything that would help me add this code -perhaps is too simple of a fix to have any kind of mod for it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm relatively new to the modding process myself tony. For the vertical lists you need to solve that with css and put the list in the correct class or id. I do believe its its like .. display: inline;

Another thing was I was not seeing my changes either and refreshing anything in styles was not working for me. I discovered what it was and was pissed at myself. Cache. Clear it each time you make a change or turn it off during design.

No, you have to edit the HTML manually. You've found out why :(
