Add a how to button for new users
« on: December 16, 2012, 02:10:32 pm »
I tried to search and I dodnt really quite get the answer I was looking for. Can I add a button to display a how to topic link for new users? We did a writeup and we would like to have a button so that it doesn't get buried in a thread that no one would look for anyways. Thanks

In the gallery menu or are you talking about the top menu in SMF?

The ideal place would be the gallery its self. I believe it would be more pronounced there. The only other option I thought was a drop down on the gallery button on the main menu bar on the protal. But if it was right there in front of people when they first open the gallery, i think that would be best. I could even submit the how to to you guys and make sure you agree. I am tied up developing the entire site so I left it up to a reliable member. I have not yet experimented much with it. I just knew that the pro version was our best option and there seems to be a lot that you can do with it. If you have your own write up or instructions, I may hhave missed them. But either way, I think a button to provide a link anywhere whether it be on my site or a link here would keep people with limited computer knowledge from feeling intimidated by the process.

Thanks for the prompt reply

Two places you can do it.

If you just want to make your own notes you can setup an html block area in the main gallery page

Open themes/default/gallery2.template.php

Find around line 44

Code: [Select]
ShowTopGalleryBar($txt['gallery_text_title']);

Add After

Code: [Select]

echo '
 <table class="table_list">
         <tbody class="header">

<tr  class="catbg">
<td align="center" class="catbg"><span class="left"></span>Gallery Notes</td>
</tr>
</tbody>
<tr class="windowbg2">
<td align="center">Your gallery notes links and other html code here</td>
</tr>

</table>
<br />';


Or if you just want to add a button to gallery menu system edit this file

Sources/Subs-Gallery2.php

Find the TopButtonTabs() function and add an entry to that menu list.
