I would like to move the Dashboard/Discussion/Activity... portion of the side panel up. Any idea how to do this? Which file should I edit to make those changes? Thanks!
Which version of Vanilla are you using, and which theme?
Sorry - I am using version 188.8.131.52 and VanillaPress2010 theme. Thanks!
In your Vanilla install you will see a themes folder, and in there a VanillaPress2010 folder.
Inside that you will find a folder called views, and in there a file called default.master.tpl
Open that file in a basic editor (notepad/wordpad etc.
This is where you would make the change.
When you say 'move it up' do you mean above the Bookmark section and/or the new discussion button, or just re-order the elements?
If you edit this part of the file so the assetname="Panel" is below the ul after signinout_link
Dashboard, etc appears at the top of the box.
(I can't get the code to post properly - the ul should obviously have < > around it.)
You can also add some or all of the _link elements to the top menu.
If that hasn't helped you work it out, could you post some kind of mockup of what you would like it to look like?
I am trying to move the panel at the bottom of the sidebar to be right under the categories module (see attachment). I tried what you suggested, but it did not work. Thanks again.
Have a look at this thread.
About half way down, @peregrine shows how you can achieve this by adding a line which specifies the order of modules in the panel.
Can you please add the link to the thread? Thanks!
Good point, well made.
I can't remember which one that was now, but this should put you right:
