How can I link back to my home page

edited September 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I like how your site has your logo and links to get to other parts of your website. Again I don't get paid for a living to write code but I know enough to be dangerous. My question is how could I add links to get back to my home page, or add something similar like you have at the top of your forums. Or even just add a link that people will see when they log out of the forums.

    Try Page Manager, it will allow you to make tabs like those above.

    When I said links at the top of the forums, I was refering to: Swell Blog | Documentation | Community | Get Vanilla | Vanilla Add-ons Links that will take you to other parts of the website. I don't think page manager is what i'm looking for. I want the user to feel like they have not left my website entirely to comment in the forums. I think they should feel like they are still on my website when using the forums.

    Seems to me that the links in the top of the site are in a frame... but I wouldn't know for sure. I know that this is the only site where I've ever seen a Vanilla forum used that had other links above it, and having the Vanilla forums displayed in a frame is the only way I can see that would make it work... but it's possible that the forum itself is actually modified to make those links stay there.

    I take that back... it seems that the forums are using an extension called Nuggets, which you can look at here. I think this will do what you want.

    I'm about to download it to try it for myself, so if it works I'll let you know ;)

    *Edit* Well, don't use Nuggets with Vanilla 1.1.3, there appears to be a bug somewhere that's causing Nuggets to behave rather strangely... but this WOULD have done the trick. It'll work in 1.1.2 though, if you haven't already updated.

    Search the wiki for LussumoBanner, and you will find some of the code that makes that top header.

    Nuggets looks like an interesting add-on but considdering I had issues just getting up and running I'm not really ready for that adventure! Wallphone thanks for the input I actually saw another post from you, where I could just add html to Admin Settings>Application Settings>Banner Title. This is exactly what I was looking for. I was scared to try it earlier becasue of the warning on that page. But I entered in a little piece of code and it works perfectly. Thanks
