    Default Get Blog link to show on vBadvanced?

    I recently installed the vBulletin Blog s/w and the Blog link shows on all pages but the vBadvanced page.

    Admin CP => vBa CMPS => Default Settings => Main Settings => Portal Output Global Variables

    Try adding 'template_hook' (without the quotes) to that setting and see if that helps.

    as Brian said, you have to add template_hook to the Portal Output Global Variables.

    After that you need to edit Template: blog_navbar_link.

    Original:

    <td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="blog.php$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[blogs]</a></td>

    Change to:

    <td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="/NAME_OF_FORUM_DIRECTORY/blog.php$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[blogs]</a></td>

    be sure to add the / before the directory name.

    Or to avoid a template edit, do what Brian stated and just add blog.php to Navbar Replacements

    my 2 cents:
    it would be nicer to simply replace the forum directory above with $vboptions[bburl]
    which would give:
    <td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="$vboptions[bburl]/blog.php$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[blogs]</a></td>

    Good call, Luc. Nice and simple.

    Stilgar... you DA MAN! I've tried other suggestions found all over these forums but nothing worked til I tried your suggestion.

    goblues... I *had* added blog.php to Navbar Replacements but for some reason that didn't work for me. I think it worked for others tho and it's a simpler step so I would recommend trying it first. For those like me for whom it didn't work, follow stilgar's instructions.

    Luciano... I *had* tried adding $vboptions[bburl] as well as per instructions in another thread. It didn't work for me, but others said it worked for them.

    So far this has been the most helpful thread for this particular problem. I'm going to go back to some of the other threads where people were told to go search... and post this links.

    Thanks all for great input!
