    A Quick Access/Forum Jump Menu?

    Hi, Just joined the forum and tried to find the Forum Jump option, but couldn't. I was wondering if you could integrate some drop down menu for quick access to different forum sections.

    Just like the 'Forum Jump' in DigitalPoint forums. What do you think?

  2. Thanked by:

    I believe this is a good idea and could be quite useful for everyone.

    Thx a lot!

    Done.

    I had to make some pretty massive behind the scene changes to the forums, so please let me know if FORUMHOME or anything else is now broken.

    The mod I installed was Navbar Forumjump- Adds a DHTML "Forum Jump" menu to your Navbar.

    It claimed to only work up to vBulletin 3.699, but once I edited that restriction out of the XML file it seems to work fine.

    It did not work well with our vBulletin template, Chat Fusion. Enough other people had experienced the same issue that the workaround were already published.

    Finally, it made our navbar menu too long, so I moved the Calender tab into the Community menu.

    Will! you are awesome. This feature is just great but just a 'sub-suggestion', change the name Forum Jump to something else so that doesn't remind me of DP Quick Menu is good as well.

    Great work!

    That may make it hard for new member to figure out, as the vBulletin mod is called "Forum Jump" and that's what it's known for on most vB forums. Hmmm...

    I felt a bit weird editing someone else's forum name, but I did shorten that one. I hope stickycarrots doesn't mind!

    StickyCarrots, if you're mad.. be mad at me, not at Will And if you're very mad we'll discuss this on MSN

    But I think you aren't

    Thanks Will for changing it!
