I'm just noticing (I've never been called Sherlock by mistake ;) ) that the bar containing "Forums", "Rules", "Members", etc. in the forum root is now gone from the new OCP4 layout/theme. Is this a configurable/permission thing, or was it removed from the tpl files? I'd like to do the same on one of my sites.

I am thinking it was removed from the template.

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.

I'll quickly explain. Since v4 this is very configurable. The bar you see is actually loaded in the ":panel_top" Comcode page (i.e. it's on a panel like any other). Various zones share this same panel_top, via standard ocPortal page redirects. The default version of this page includes two things:
  • Some logic that defines where it should show (e.g. shows on ":recommend" but not ":start", and shows through forum zone).
  • The actual call to the menu block, which loads up the menu.
The menu that is loaded has a special name beginning with "_". That indicates it is an inbuilt menu. You can actually change the menu name to anything, and then you'll be able to edit like any other menu.
You can also do other things, like change the menu type (e.g. you could make it a drop-down).

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
