    it looks like this it can't''be missed , just remove everything from the begin translate button to the end translate button .

    < !-- Begin TranslateThis Button -->
    
    < div id="translate-this" >< a style="width:100%!important;height:25px;display:block;" class="translate-this-button" href="http://www.translatecompany.com/" title="Translate">Translate Company< /a >< /div>< /br >
    
    < script type="text/javascript" src="http://x.translateth.is/translate-this.js" >< /script >
    < script type="text/javascript" >
    TranslateThis();
    < /script >

    yea now that is a good reaction to add to peregrine's reactions !!

  • yea i don't see any folder named -default.master.php in my file manager -themes- folder :-(

  • vrijvlindervrijvlinder Papillon-Sauvage MVP

    I really could use a link to see what is going on, that file is in the views folder in the theme folder for the theme you are using. All themes have their own master. The GreenGlass theme uses a php master the Embed friendly uses a tpl master .

    I am not sure what theme you are using now, if it is my theme it has a default.master.php

    themes/GreenGlass/views/default.master.php

    You need to read the documentation for the software and for your file system, once you do it will become clearer.

    great ! yes you can edit it with a normal text editor .

  • I used the code editor is that ok? Also one last thing i want to delete, is the the (index) bar to the top right, where is that?

  • vrijvlindervrijvlinder Papillon-Sauvage MVP

    it is after the search part in the same file as the translate button remove everything from p to /p
    It is not too far down from where the button was.

    < p >< ul id="menu-bar" >
     < li >< a href="#" >I N D E X< /a >
       < ul >

  • Thank you, it worked!

    How come my mobile tab is not working, i tired it on my cell phone and website, just says (page not found) i love your theme (green) but by default i guess, it shows a very plane theme on my mobile phone (blue)

  • vrijvlindervrijvlinder Papillon-Sauvage MVP

    Ok you need to check and see if you have these folders in the catch of the installation

    cache/Smarty/compile

    if you don't have them you need to create them , make one folder called Smarty and another compile and put the compile folder inside Smarty and then put that in the cache folder.

    You can also try using the plugin go back mobile if you do already have those folders. But I suspect you don't and you will need to make them. Nothing need to be in them they get filled automatically they just need to be there.

    The mobile theme will be the default theme but you can add other themes for mobile just install them like this one and then in you config.php look for this line , if it is not there add it

    $Configuration['Garden']['MobileTheme']= 'GlassMobile';

    I have one theme I made for mobile that is like GreenGlass but it is called GlassMobile. You can edit it so it matches the GreenGlass . The code is practically the same as GreenGlass so you will be able to be familiar with editing it to your liking .

    If you mean the mobile view link ? it only works from a mobile device but it should not give a 404 not found. This what the link looks like in the master.

    $this->Menu->AddLink('Home', T('Mobile View'), 'profile/mobile');

    $this->Menu->AddLink('MobileView', T('Mobile View'), 'profile/mobile');

    there are also links to PrivacyNotice plugin which you can use and for the Bonk 404 custom error page if you choose to use one other wise you can remove those links too or change them for something else.

    $this->Menu->AddLink('Home', T('Privacy'), 'plugin/PrivacyNotice');

    $this->Menu->AddLink('Home', T('Bonk'), 'plugin/Bonk',

    array('Garden.Settings.Manage'),array(),array('target'=>'_blank'));

  • yes it does not work on my website or cell phone, says (page not found) thanks for the info, i don't know if i can do all that, seems hard :-( there's no easy way to make that mobile tab work?

  • Because I want to have your green theme and a cool looking theme for mobile users to use

  • vrijvlindervrijvlinder Papillon-Sauvage MVP

    It is not hard magda you just follow the instructions I have laid out and you will be fine.

    try installing the go back mobile plugin and see if that fixes it, if not you will have to create the folders that are missing. That happened to me and many other people and they had to do it too.

  • ic, well cant i just download it from-- http://vanillaforums.org/addon/glassmobile-theme -- then unzip it in my themes folder? but how will it know to go to that mobile theme, there's already one in there that's very plan (blue)

    yes you download and install like all themes then you need to stick that line in your

    config.php to make it pick that theme for the mobile. The config.php is the dashboard but on the inside . So many settings you made in the dashboard will appear in the config.php like the theme you picked. Some settings are not available in the dashboard and picking a mobile theme is one of those things so you need to change the default settings form the settings file which is the config.php just find the section that has Garden in the line and paste this line in there. Very simple stuff more simple than removing the stuff you did and you did fine so jut go ahead and do this after you install the GlassMobile.

    $Configuration['Garden']['MobileTheme']= 'GlassMobile';

    there is no other way to select a mobile theme.

    Maybe the resident Scribe @hgtonight can stick some of this in the vanilla wiki ? :)
