posticon Runboard.com link


When on a board (any board) there is a navigation bar called the .ak_miscoptbar_table in the CSS.

The very first link on that table has always been a link back to runboard.com which would take you to one of Runboard's homepages (either the one you see when you are logged out or the one with your own information when you are logged in).

Now with Runboards new Profile Pages that link takes you to your own Profile Page and you must then click on the Miscellaneous tab to see the information that is roughly equal to what you saw at the old runboard.com site. That is two clicks instead of one which means it is less user friendly than before. Fortunately there is a fix for that. emoticon

Here is what you do.

1. Goto your Control Panel -> Board management -> Customize the language set and scroll all the way down to the very last entry.

2. When you get there you will see the following entry: <a href="%1">%2</a>

3. Now if you want that link to go to the old Runboard.com homepage like it did before you want to replace that entry with this:

<a href="http://www.runboard.com/?homepage">runboard.com</a>

this works for now but not knowing what future changes are coming you might want the link to take you straight to your Profiles Miscellaneous page. to do that you replace the code with this:

<a href="/?#misc">%2</a>.

4. Click on the Submit custom set button and you are done.

Re: Runboard.com link


So if I have a custom button for that, mine looks like this right now:
quote:

<a href="%1"><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v38/overthehillfan/QOskins/Spring/SBrunboardcom.jpg" alt="Runboard.com" class="rblink" /></a>



I need to change that first bit to:
quote:

<a href="/?#misc">%2</a>.



But would the rest stay the same?
Would it look like this:
quote:

<a href="/?#misc">%2</a>"><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v38/overthehillfan/QOskins/Spring/SBrunboardcom.jpg" alt="Runboard.com" class="rblink" /></a>



And if YES.....then should I change the "Runboard.com" wording to something else?
PROFILE INFO? Or something?

Re: Runboard.com link


You got close emoticon

It is looking like the first option is going to be a permanent change since Thor is now using that bit for all the Runboard logo's (as of yesterday at least) so if you want to include your custom image without changes in the link you would change this:
quote:

<a href="%1"><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v38/overthehillfan/QOskins/Spring/SBrunboardcom.jpg" alt="Runboard.com" class="rblink" /></a>

to this (I am making the bit that needs changing bold so you can see it better in the code):
quote:

<a href="/?homepage"><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v38/overthehillfan/QOskins/Spring/SBrunboardcom.jpg" alt="Runboard.com" class="rblink" /></a>

That sets things like they were before the Live Feed was activated.

-> To set things up so the link goes to the users miscellaneous options page which I am almost positive will not change you would use my second option and so you would change this:
quote:

<a href="%1"><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v38/overthehillfan/QOskins/Spring/SBrunboardcom.jpg" alt="Runboard.com" class="rblink" /></a>

to read like this:
quote:

<a href="/?#misc"><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v38/overthehillfan/QOskins/Spring/SBrunboardcom.jpg" alt="Runboard.com" class="rblink" /></a>

The graphic is your choice of course since it is your board but personally speaking I would go with option one like I did here and leave the graphic as is.

To get the new live feed as a link you could do what I did here and replace what you see in the custom language set for control_panel with this:
quote:

<a href="http://www.runboard.com/">Runboard Live</a>

or, since you are using a graphic image on your board it would look like this:
quote:

<a href="http://www.runboard.com/"><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v38/overthehillfan/QOskins/Spring/SBcontrolpanel.jpg" alt="Runboard Live" /></a>

If you do that then the "Control Panel" graphic would definitely need to change to avoid confusing people. emoticon

Re: Runboard.com link


WOW...okay now that was quite the answer! I may be more confused now than I was before! (not that it's hard to do that.. emoticon )

I kind of like my "control panel" button going to each persons control panel....as one person said to me..."geez, are there enough links going to our new live feed." What can I say... emoticon


But you are thinking that the first option will not be permanent? That eventually we'll need to change them over to the users miscellaneous options page?

Re: Runboard.com link


Sorry if I got you confused. I was trying to take the coding one step at a time to make it easier.

Initially I thought the first option would just be a temporary fix but I am seeing that link being used in more places now so there is a decent chance it will be permanent.

Re: Runboard.com link


Yes, I think it will be permanent especially since Runboard has done two updates now and the first option is still working. emoticon
