Not Supported Template Edits Re-usable Code Translations  

This small modification will allow you to either center or removed vBulletin's small default forum title & welcome message.

Credit goes to myself & CoreyLTH

You should always BACKUP your database before making changes.


To Center:


In ForumHome look for


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace with:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

To Remove:


In FORUMHOME

Look for:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

And wrap it around wih


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

So when done it will look like


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


v1.1 = UPDATE 02-23-2011

IMPORTANT: Always backup your database before making any edits.

In navbar look for:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

READ CLOSELY:

Wrap everything around it with


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

except for


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

So the surrounding code will look like this when done....


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

This will remove the "Home" icon and the word "Forum" on your Forum Homepage, but still keep your quick navigation links within your forums.

Optional - Grammar correction

This really will depend on your own liking and the name of your site. Bit if you want to change the welcome message from,

"Welcome to the X"

And change it to

"Welcome to X"

Go to:

AdminCP > Languages & Phrases > Search in Phrases

Search for


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Using the Phrase Text and Phrase Variable Name search, option.

There should only find 1 per language installed

Change it to

PHP Code:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Can you help?

Sorry, but that is another modification and outside the realm of support for this modification.

My best guess is you want to use the "center" option and not the remove option for your Forum Title & Welcome Message. You should (maybe) able to still remove the "House" icon and the word "Forum" though (maybe).

The links instead of an advertisement aren't a modification, or at least to me they aren't. Instead of html opening a graphic for an advertisement, the html just says join us at...blah blah...So I am assuming that if I did have an advertisement it would do the same thing.

It did not do this until I edited the code as you described, so that code edit is the causing factor.

But you can disregard the assistance, I will put the original code back in.

thanks anyway.

Is there also a way to get rid of that "Home" and arrow in the cms and "blog" and arrow in the blog?
Thanks

Not without removing your quick navigation.

very cool mod! altho i didn't use it to do anything but figure out how to change it from repeating the title twice & removing the "the" from the welcome message

now it says
"welcome to"
forum title

Vs the old

forum title
welcome to the "forum title"
^ redundant & looked horrendous

Thanks again!

Change it to whatever you like. As suggested though.... I want it to say Welcome to SITE NAME
and finally remove the word "the".

So you can put in

Sorry for the delay in my reply or update. I only recently switched back to vBulletin (Oh how I missed it)

12 - 15 - 2011 - UPDATE
v1.2


Notice: This update need only be applied if you have already reverted your code, typically during a vBulletin upgrade and / or have not already installed this modification.

The changes made will help reduce any possible conflict and help limit the need to revert templates and re-apply for future updates of vBulletin.

Further this update also includes the optional grammar correction, which not everyone may need. But can be applied at any time (this version or previous version of the code)

If none of the above is true for you .... You do not need to update.

I successfully removed the house and "forum" but for some reason the I cannot get rid of the welcome box/message. This is what mine looks like, any suggestions? Does it matter I am using a Completevb skin?


<vb:comment> <div id="pagetitle">
<h1>{vb:raw vboptions.bbtitle}</h1>
<p id="welcomemessage" class="description">{vb:rawphrase welcome_to_the_x, {vb:raw vboptions.bbtitle}}</p>
</div> </vb:comment>

It shouldn't make a difference unless you have another hook for something that relates to it (custom code in the skin).

Try clearing your system cache and rebuilding the theme.

Hey Old School, thanks for the reply.

When you say "rebuilding the theme" what exactly does that mean?

Clear you system cache (on the server for the forum)

1)


AdminCP > Maintenance > Clear System Cache


2)

Rebuild theme / skin / style (however you wish to call it)

AdminCP > Maintenance > General Update Tools > Rebuild Styles > YES / YES > Rebuild Styles

Repeat step #1
