IP.Content 2.3 includes a new feature designed to help you build your forums and website out the way you want to: control over your primary navigational menu.
The primary navigation menu is the the "tab" bar across the top of the page that includes links to each major section of your site. IP.Board builds this automatically based on the applications you have installed, but when you use IP.Content, you will likely find yourself creating new pages that you wish you could quickly link to in that same bar. It is possible to edit your skin templates manually to accomplish this, but this presents a few problems:
- Your template edits may need to be reverted when upgrading in the future in order to inherit updates in the skin in future releases.
- You will have to determine the logic necessary to show the tab as "lit up" when someone is viewing that page (and to ensure other tabs do not appear to be lit up).
- It is inconvenient repeating this process each time a new page is created.
You can also modify many aspects of your default application tabs as well, going beyond what IP.Board offers by default. For instance, using this tool you can add additional attributes to your application tabs, change the title, and modify the textual tooltip shown when a user hovers over the tab.
The best part about this new feature - IP.Content automatically figures out which tab to light up without any extra work on your part!
We hope this new feature in IP.Content 2.3 helps you better control your site the way you want it to be.
