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.

It shouldn't.

It just forces the system to "refresh" the skin from start (with your made edits)

Worse case I've ever seen is the CMS looks a little odd in which case you go do the following

AdminCP > vBulletin CMS > Verify and Repair Node Table

If you're really that worried, you should have remembered to follow step 1 in all my modifications (backup 1st, always).

My only advise would be to try this

Try adding the comment tags above and below.

If this does not work, please contact the skin author or investigate if you have any other modifications that add or subtract in that part of your site.

Originally, I used center as to make it compatible with older browsers (and smart phones). Also to void conflicts for some past popular skins.

If you wish to suggest an alternative code, please provide it and I'll review it.

Copied and pasted it, cleared cache again and rebuilt it. Still no luck and unfortunately CompleteVB is not proving to have the best customer service. I have been trying to get my login info sent out for 3 days, their "forgot your username & password" does not work... Odd that the change to delete the house and forum worked but removing the Welcome box does not.

Interesting alternative. Only thing about that is vBulletin will suggest you revert upon upgrade, as it will not merge that code.

I think that was another reason why I stuck with center code. To avoid the confusion for noobs about that.

But that is a good alternative.

I'm sorry to hear this. Sadly, I do not think I can help you further since this does work on every other theme I have tried.

It is either something about the custom work done with that paid theme or another modification.

I lol`d

The highlighted part you're looking to remove seems to be an notice. This modification doesn't remove those. I was going crazy wondering why you were having such a hard time.

Good to know you have it all working for you now

FYI: To change, edit, add or remove an notice. Which you seem to be looking to do... vBulletin already has a built in setting for this.

AdminCP > Notice > Notice Manager OR Add New Notice (depending on what you want to do)
