"About us" & "Blog", Also changing the title text.

This discussion is related to the VanillaPress2010 addon.
edited March 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
i am new to vanilla and plan to use it on a new forum of mine.
( http://www.historia.no )
I would like to know how to use the "Blog" and "about us" pages? Now when i click theese i just get sent to the frontpage, and i cant seem to find anywhere in the controlpanel for editing.

And also, i would like to change the title/header.. now it says "All discussions - Historia.no .... " I would like to change the "All discussions" to something else.

I am sorry for my poor technical explanation and poor english.

Kind regards
Thomas Haaland

    Very nice theme. ;-)

    I'm very new to this too. Which directory/page is the code where I can change/add the links to "about us" change the "Just another Vanilla Forum" etc? It'd be great to remove our old site completely and use Vanilla for a replacement. It seems to have everything we need right now.

    We're at: http://www.mycorps.us/forum

  • Hi, you can create pages using custom pages plugin. After read this http://vanillaforums.org/docs/routes .
    To change the link in the menu go to /themes/VanillaPress2010/views/ and open default.master.tpl with a text editor.

    Find this
    <!-- Add your own links here --> <div class="menu"> <ul> <li><a href="" title="Home">Home</a></li> <li><a href="" title="About">About</a></li> <li><a href="" title="blog">blog</a></li> <li class="current_page_item"><a href="" title="forum">forum</a></li> <li><a href="" title="Contact Us">Contact Us</a></li> </ul> </div>

    and replace <li><a href="" title="About">About</a></li>
    for something like this
    <li><a href="mysite.com/theroutethatyoucreated" title="About">About</a></li>
