I have two weeks of exams left. After they have finished, I will be working hard on completing Menu Control 1.4
I think I will make 2 of the links dropdown bars and I will include a HOW-TO with the modification telling you how to add more options and dropdown menu links

Marky,

I read thru the thread and may have missed it...

I have added a second menu but it's the same as the first one. How do I make the second menu different than the first one?

Do you mean you installed Menu Control again to get a second menu? If so - this would happen because the variables are the same as the original Menu Control installation. I edited the modification for someone on this forum so that you could install menu control a second time, I've just found the edited xml file. Gimmie a few and I'll post up how to install Menu Control a second time.

How to: Add a third menu to your forums by installing Menu Control Twice

This edit to Menu Control has only been tested on one board, and I am prepared to give support for it. BUT - consider this option as a beta, as in the next version, I will include more stable instructions how to do this...

STEP 1: Upload the attached .xml file (menucontrol-1.3-extended.xml) as a product as you would with Menu Control.

STEP 2: Go to template 'Navbar':

FIND: $menucontrol

ADD BELOW: $menucontrol2

STEP 3: You can now view options for your third menu in vBulletin Options under 'Menu Control 1.3 Extended'.

Thanks,

Marky

What a great hack :bunny: I really love it and I'm really looking forward to the next releases and/or the next version

For the moment there is just one question left. I run vB 3.5.4 with vBEasy Portal. The menu controll bar is placed at the portal-site, but on the portal-site automatically a "forum" link is inserted. Please see the screenshot ...

Can you please help me to get rid of it? :-)

Thanks for helping and thanks for providing us with such great stuff

Hello and thank you for replying,

where you put "memberprofilehere", what is the code for that? I have tried several and unless I specify one member profile number it does not work. Though, obviously when I specify one person's number everybody get redirected to that page.

Again, Please help.

Ella

Excellent job on this. It's awesome.

I only have one request. Is it possible (and this may have been mentioned, so if it has, please forgive me) to make it so each link has a customizable "target=" so that some will open in a new window (_blank) while others are the parent (_parent) or whatever you wish. Rather then just having a single option for all the links.

Again, thanks for the hack, it's very helpful.
