I recently upgraded to latest version of GL after which there was no menu item for Gallery as there was before. So I hard-coded a link into the menu in header.thtml.
PHP Formatted Code
 53                     <tr>
 54                             <td colspan="2" valign="bottom" align="center" bgcolor="#242e55" background="{layout_url}/theme-images/gameserver_menu_tile.gif"><img src="{layout_url}/theme-images/pixel.gif" alt="" height="36" width="8" align="absmiddle" border="0">{menu_elements}{plg_menu_elements} <b><a href="http://www.trojanswimclub.ie/gallery/albums.php">Gallery</a></b> |</td>
 55                     </tr>
How can I make this look the same as the other menu elements? I am using the lastest version of Gamserver and site is at http://www.trojanswimlcub.ie. Shane

The menu items use the style of the menuitem*.thtml template files.

You could go with using the 'custom' entry (see CUSTOM_menuEntries in lib-custom.php) which would pick those up automatically. Or copy the contents from those files (menuitem.thtml, actually) into your header.thtml

Hi Dirk,

I uncommented the function CUSTOM_menuEntries () in lib-custom.php

and config.php reads,
PHP Formatted Code
$_CONF['menu_elements'] = array
(
    'home',      // link to homepage
    'contribute',   // contribute / "submit a story" link
    'links',        // link to the links section (aka web resources)
    // 'polls',        // link to past polls
    'calendar',     // link to the site calendar
    // 'search',       // link to advanced search
    'stats',        // link to site stats
    // 'prefs',     // link to user's preferences
    // 'plugins'       // links added by plugins, like {plg_menu_elements}
    'custom'     // for custom links (see lib-custom.php)
);


It isn't working yet. Is there something else I need to do?

Thanks for your help,

Shane

Seems to work. On your site I see

Home | Contribute | Site Statistics | Gallery | ...

Note that you can remove the 'links' and 'calendar' entries from config.php, since those are now plugins and will show up for the 'plugins' entry or {plg_menu_entries} variable.

bye, Dirk

Oh yes! Sorry. I was just looking at the right end of the menu.

Thanks Dirk.
