[Closed]: Hiding or moving the menu items in user mode only
« on: April 24, 2009, 06:52:10 pm »

I am trying to modify a template to match it to a web site's main page.  Pretty much working out good. However I want to remove any trace of the menu items for comments, login etc. from the public view.  Either that, move them to the bottom of the page.

I found one topic saying these menus were in the theme.php file but they are not. "water-drop" theme.
I also tried to re-locate the tags to insert the menu items {menu} to below the {GALLERY} place holder but if they are moved anywhere below {GALLERY} they just display the tag, not the menu.

First preference is to have no menu options ( just the galleries ) visible to the public and a separate page for administration.

Second preference is to be able to move all menu items to the bottom of the page below the gallery>

Any suggestions welcome ! :)

search for final extract plugin if you want to hide some menu items.
if you doesn't found the function in the theme.php from your theme, copy /paste it from the sample/theme.php file to your theme.php file

I prefer editing the existing rather than installing plug in's. 

I would like to know what file these menus are in now if anyone knows. "water-drop"

Sorry had to make a new profile. I reset password to the original profile and never received a confirmation email and could not get in again. I had it resent but it kept saying there was an error so I assume my old account is locked out now.

someone said that.  But that does not answer my question.

That file does NOT contain those links yet those links appear so they must already be in a file that is being used by the template already.

My question is ( rephrased ) where are these links coming from now since I did NOT copy them from the sample template?

The defaults are being composed in a file that you mustn't edit. Edit themes/yourtheme/theme.php and override the stuff you want to see changed. If you don't have the skills to find out on your own where the defaults are being generated, you definitely shouldn't fiddle with that file.

Second preference is to be able to move all menu items to the bottom of the page below the gallery>
You'll need to move the handling of the menu tokens from the pageheader to the pagefooter function then.

I prefer editing the existing rather than installing plug in's. 
Then go ahead! If you can't, use the plugin.
There's a reason why the plugin is recommended: you don't have to fiddle with the code. If you hack the code, you'll have to modify it every time an update comes out. I'm not ready to discuss this in detail, as it has been discussed many times over.

Posting the actual error message would help more than vague guesses.

someone said that. 
That person was right then.

Do as suggested in board rules for a start. Posting a link to your gallery is mandatory.

There is no actual "error message" It just says "There was an error"

If you don't know what file those are in, please let someone else answer this post.  It wastes both of our times reading and writing here when no one is able to tell me which file.

I have done so...but no one answers the questions I ask...I keep getting sent to unrelated information. For instance I asked where to change the "rel=" to "target=" and I get all kinds of references to other stuff, to scripts, to plugins etc. That is not what the question was in the first place.

I believe my questions are pretty clear yet the answers are all round-about and never answer the question I ask.

If people would just read the actual question and answer what I asked we would all save a lot of time.

Thanks.

I know pretty well what file that is. I have had enough of your insults. You're banned from posting for a week. Next ban will be permanent.

I have been reading this. Sorry no one seems able to help.

I clearly understand your questions and you are correct that you never once received a straight answer to your questions. I think sometimes the people responding to these boards insist not being very helpful sometimes then blaming the person who posted for being rude because they did not get a straight answer to a pretty clear question.

Better they just said they don't know than to give us the run-around on a simple question.

Strange that the account "Someoneelse" is using the same IP address the user accounts "StuffDone" and "stuffdone1" are using. What a great coincidence. You just earned yourself the permanent ban. You're not allowed to re-register.
