Re: Adding a link to the MAIN Menu

Thanks for that I have gone to the file it directs me to in the help, and I have added the link and I can see it on the main menu.

the instructions now read:

NOW after your changes, update your system module: The menu template is stored in the database, "updating" changes the old database version to your new one

Q: How do I do this and how do I connect this to a linked page I have on my server?

Updating the system module just means going to system admin->modules->system and in the action column click on the update icon.

I don't know what you mean with "connect this to a linked page..." If you are already seeing the link in the menu then there's nothing more to do, is there?

Hi Yes I have done all that and I can see the link in the main menu, but it's linked to the defult site url.

I have a "Reffer a Friend" page on the site which is a link of the WF Channel, I know the url of this and it's this page I want to link to it. How do i do that?

<class="menuMain" href="<{$xoops_url}>[b]/modules/wfchannel/blahblahblah[/b]">yourtext</a>
Well, I recommend you to install Multimenu, anyway. If you want to make your own "main menu" only, multimenu 1.4 jp-edition is sufficient. If you want to make varied menus, solo's multimenu 1.7 is the one.

Hi Olorin,
Thank you, for that I will look to install the Multimenu at a later date.

But at the moment I will add the link that you have kindly given me below.

Q: Do I add this line the the "System_Block_Mainmenu" file?
with the extention of the file I want it to link to?

here is an example:

<table cellspacing="0">
<tr>
<td id="mainmenu">
<a class="menuTop" href="<{$xoops_url}>/"><{$block.lang_home}></a>
<!-- start module menu loop -->
<{foreach item=module from=$block.modules}>
<a class="menuMain" href="<{$xoops_url}>/modules/<{$module.directory}>/"><{$module.name}></a> <{foreach item=sublink from=$module.sublinks}>
<a class="menuSub" href="<{$sublink.url}>"><{$sublink.name}></a>
<{/foreach}>
<{/foreach}>
<a class="menuMain" href="<{$xoops_url}>/yourlink">your link text</a>
<!-- end module menu loop -->
</td> </tr>
</table>

I have edited the System_Block_Mainmenu File how described in this forum. The menu, however, does not change. What will be the reason? Thanks for help in advance
Best regards
