Adding own stuff above header
So after I got to know that Vanilla may will never work with nice urls in embedded mode I started searching for options to insert my main menu manually and came along this:
- Master Views - these represent everything that wraps the main content of the
page. If all you want to do is add a menu or banner above Vanilla, this is
all you need to alter. To do so, copy the default master view from
/themes/yourtheme/views/default.master.php and edit it there.
So there is no such file in my forum - even in a fresh installation it's not there. How can I insert code then and why is the file missing?
My goal is to add my main menu (wrapping around the forum). Therefore I need to load some PHP and display the results with my template engine. Then the forum should load and finally again some of my own footer stuff.
