Bring Back "Go" Button for VB4 by BOP5 (Forum Jump/Quick Navigation menu)
Mod Version: 1.00, by BirdOPrey5 (IB Staff) BirdOPrey5 is offline
Developer Last Online: Jul 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (13 votes - 4.85 average) Installs: 73
Released: 15 Jan 2011 Last Update: Never Downloads: 232
Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Re-usable Code Translations  

Demo Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tLLceMb604

This mod simply brings back the "Go" button that was removed from the "Quick Navigation" AKA "Forum Jump" menu.



VB3 already has the "Go" button but when it was removed from VB4 it has added an extra click for users who want to simply "jump" back to the forum they came from.

There are no settings, just install the mod and it will work.

If you have a heavily customized style, specifically a custom forumjump template there is a manual template edit you can make below. THIS IS ONLY NECESSARY IF THE MOD DOESN'T WORK, TRY IT FIRST.

The "Go" button only appears when viewing a thread or viewing a forum (showthread or forumdisplay) because those are the only places it makes sense to have it.

Full instructions in zip file but it's just 1 product to upload- nothing else to do or set.

This should work on all versions of 4.0.x/4.1.x - it has been tested on 4.0.8.

Please Mark As Installed If You Use This.


Manual Template Edit- Not usually needed:

Edit the forumjump template:

In Admin CP -> Style Manager ->[Choose Your Template] -> Edit Templates -> forumjump

Find the line (or something similar too):

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

Below it Add:

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

Save Changes... Repeat for all styles you use. (The mod still needs to be installed for this to work.)

I don't see why we'd need this Go button, when you click on the destination Forum you want to go to you go right there. No need to press a Go button.

Thanks for this, and to new Joe, it is needed because unlike vb3s menu which saves the forum your in when clicked, vb4's menu when clicked jumps to the top of the list.

So if your in a thread in forum #72, if you are wanting to go back to forum #72 you have to click the jump list then scroll all the way down to 72, not very quick.

Here is a short demo video showing the difference between not having it and having it:

Thanks! This has been really bugging me, especially on my (small screen) mobile.

I think that the only reason that every vB owner has not installed this is that they have not been lucky enough to use the right search terms.

Probably some truth to this... I added more keywords to the title if the search is ever re-indexes it should help.
