Link From Webpage To Forum Navbar

Below will explain how to leave a link on your forum`s navbar to your index or homepage using the webpage features.

Ok here is HOWTODOIT

Please remember to use the Editor account before making any template changes, If you have not made an editor account yet please read HERE

Second you must have all ready a template you can edit.

If you have not done this please read HOWTODOIT


1. Goto admin panel --- 3. Styles --- Edit Templates/Logos -- the template you wish to edit (EG myff_howtodoit1)--- Submit

Now look at the top in the area marked Choose Forum template/javascript/css File to Edit use the drop down bar and find

overall_header.tpl


Look for Something like this

Code:
      <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2" border="0">
               <tr>
                  <td align="center" valign="top" nowrap="nowrap"><span class="mainmenu"><a href="{U_FAQ}" class="mainmenu">{L_FAQ}</a></span><span class="mainmenu"> :: <a href="{U_SEARCH}" class="mainmenu">{L_SEARCH}</a> :: <a href="{U_MEMBERLIST}" class="mainmenu">{L_MEMBERLIST}</a> :: <a href="{U_GROUP_CP}" class="mainmenu">{L_USERGROUPS}</a>
                  <!-- BEGIN switch_user_logged_out -->
                  :: <a href="{U_REGISTER}" class="mainmenu">{L_REGISTER}</a></span>
                  <!-- END switch_user_logged_out -->
                  </td>
               </tr>
               <tr>
                  <td height="25" align="center" valign="top" nowrap="nowrap"><span class="mainmenu"><a href="{U_PROFILE}" class="mainmenu">{L_PROFILE}</a> :: <a href="{U_PRIVATEMSGS}" class="mainmenu">{PRIVATE_MESSAGE_INFO}</a> :: <a href="{U_LOGIN_LOGOUT}" class="mainmenu">{L_LOGIN_LOGOUT}</a></span></td>
               </tr>


And add something like this to it

Code:
:: <a href="http://www.howtodoit.myfreeforum.org" class="mainmenu">Home Page</a>


So it may look like this

Code:
      <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2" border="0">
               <tr>
                  <td align="center" valign="top" nowrap="nowrap"><span class="mainmenu"><a href="{U_FAQ}" class="mainmenu">{L_FAQ}</a></span><span class="mainmenu"> :: <a href="{U_SEARCH}" class="mainmenu">{L_SEARCH}</a> :: <a href="{U_MEMBERLIST}" class="mainmenu">{L_MEMBERLIST}</a> :: <a href="{U_GROUP_CP}" class="mainmenu">{L_USERGROUPS}</a>:: <a href="http://www.howtodoit.myfreeforum.org" class="mainmenu">Home Page</a>
                  <!-- BEGIN switch_user_logged_out -->
                  :: <a href="{U_REGISTER}" class="mainmenu">{L_REGISTER}</a></span>
                  <!-- END switch_user_logged_out -->
                  </td>
               </tr>
               <tr>
                  <td height="25" align="center" valign="top" nowrap="nowrap"><span class="mainmenu"><a href="{U_PROFILE}" class="mainmenu">{L_PROFILE}</a> :: <a href="{U_PRIVATEMSGS}" class="mainmenu">{PRIVATE_MESSAGE_INFO}</a> :: <a href="{U_LOGIN_LOGOUT}" class="mainmenu">{L_LOGIN_LOGOUT}</a></span></td>
               </tr>



To make it show with an icon then you would need to add.



Code:
<img src="templates/myfs_testhtml1/images/icon_mini_login.gif" width="12" height="13" border="0" alt="Extra text goes here" hspace="3" />


So the final code may look like this

Code:
<a href="http://www.howtodoit.myfreeforum.org" class="mainmenu"><img src="templates/myfs_testhtml1/images/icon_mini_login.gif" width="12" height="13" border="0" alt="Extra text goes here" hspace="3" />Home Page</a>


Tips

Of course you will need to change the url to that of both your forum and your image.

You can also get rid of the
Code:
::
if you dont not want it showing.

And thats HOWTODOIT
