Remove discussion and categories tabs?

edited November 2009 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Hi I wondered whether it was possible to remove the discussions and categories navigation at the top of the forum.

    If anyone knew how to move those to the panel on the left hand side, that would be good too.

  • @Julian_Knott: Open /themes/menu.php and change lines 29-31 from:

    while (list($Key, $Tab) = each($this->Tabs)) { echo '<li'.$this->TabClass($this->CurrentTab, $Tab['Value']).'><a href="'.$Tab['Url'].'" '.$Tab['Attributes'].'>'.$Tab['Text'].'</a></li>'; }


    while (list($Key, $Tab) = each($this->Tabs)) { if ($Tab['Text'] != "Discussions" && $Tab['Text'] != "Categories" ) { echo '<li'.$this->TabClass($this->CurrentTab, $Tab['Value']).'><a href="'.$Tab['Url'].'" '.$Tab['Attributes'].'>'.$Tab['Text'].'</a></li>'; } }
  • @yann: To "move" them to the left you could just use the code I gave to Julian_Knott but also open themes/panel.php and add the following to line 5 or 14 (depending on if you want the link above or below the "start a new discussion" link):

    echo ' <ul> <li> <h2>Forum Navigation</h2> <ul id="ForumNavigationPanel"> <li><a href="/" title="Latest Discussions">Discussions</a></li> <li><a href="/categories.php" title="Categories">Categories</a></li> </ul> </li> </ul> ';

    You will probably want to style the links in a different way to differentiate them from the other panel links too, so you would probably add something like this to the bottom of /themes/vanilla/styles/default/vanilla.css:

    #ForumNavigationPanel a { font-weight: bold; font-size: 12px; color: #c00; }
  • Great, it worked. Thanks.
