1. Depends if you are using a custom theme you will need to add a link or button.
2. Nothing is in the admin panel you manage all links from the links page.
3. Same as #1
This is probably a dumb question, but i am a noob at this. How do i add a button to a theme?
Went to the Indext.template.php
added the following code.
// Show all the relative links, such as help, search, contents, and the like.<link rel="links" href="' . $scripturl . '?action=links" />
<link rel="help" href="', $scripturl, '?action=help" target="_blank" />
<link rel="search" href="' . $scripturl . '?action=search" />
<link rel="links" href="' . $scripturl . '?action=links" />
<link rel="contents" href="', $scripturl, '" />';
and Under this
// Show the menu up top. Something like [home] [help] [profile] [logout]...
global $context, $settings, $options, $scripturl, $txt;
I added this
// How about the [links] button?
echo '<td><a href="', $scripturl, '?action=links">', ($settings['use_image_buttons'] ? '<img src="' . $settings['images_url'] . '/' . $context['user']['language'] . '/links.gif" alt="' . $txt['120'] . '" style="margin: 0px 0;" border="0" />' : $txt), '</a></td>';
I put mine between my search button and arcade button in that list there.
I also created via paint a button from modifiy one of the buttons from the template to say links and uploaded it to:
All is well now except my poorly made button for that template
I hope that helps someone else, was kind of inconvenient to find but its one nice mod!!
