Adding a menu

edited October 2011 in Questions
I am new to Vanilla Forums.

I was wondering how to add a completely new menu to the forum.

For example

We got the standard:
Dashboard
Discussions
Activity
Inbox
Admin
Sign Out

I want to create another menu with
Home, News Competitions, contant.

I know there is probably a really simple way to do this but nothing I tried as work so far. I be great full for any help.

  • Thanks underDog, thanks for the link.

    I think I just needed some food and a break because about five minutes after dinner, with only skimming the link I had it working.
    Here how I did it, in case anyone else get stuck

    In the Theme, default.master.php, I added the following code under the
    ;

    Then it was just the case of making it look pretty, added some basic CSS I had lying around.

    /*top style menu items */
    li.topitem{
    float: right;
    list-style: none;
    position: relative;
    margin: 10px;
    padding-top:9px;
    padding-bottom:9px;
    padding-right:20px;
    padding-left:20px;
    background: #f7f7f7;
    font: bold 12px Arial;
    color: ce499c;
    text-align:center;
    }

    That is how I created the new menu bar. It works for me at least for the moment. Through I wondering whether there is away to link it to the wordpress menu. But considering the deadline for this project is next week, that can wait for another day. I am liking Vanilla forum so far, much easier to adapt and change than PHPbb3 forum.
