Tutorial

Ever wonder how to change where the very top and very bottom links actually go to?

I've been asked a few times not how to change what they say, but when clicked on where they actually go.

Occasionally someone wants Links to go to yoursite.com/links.html or a totally, instead of yoursite.com/links.php.

This one is relatively fast and easy. Only one file to change slightly, and no database editing.

Backup just in case /inc/design.inc.php to your local PC.

Then open up /inc/design.inc.php and find the following:


// array of top and bottom links
$aMainLinks = array(
    'Home'         => array( 'href' => 'index.php',        'Title' => '_Home' ),
    'About'        => array( 'href' => 'about_us.php',     'Title' => '_About Us' ),
    'Privacy'      => array( 'href' => 'privacy.php',      'Title' => '_Privacy' ),
    'Termsofuse'   => array( 'href' => 'terms_of_use.php', 'Title' => '_Terms_of_use' ),
    'Services'     => array( 'href' => 'services.php',     'Title' => '_Services' ),
    'FAQ'          => array( 'href' => 'faq.php',          'Title' => '_FAQ' ),
    'Articles'     => array( 'href' => 'articles.php',     'Title' => '_Articles' ),
    'Stories'      => array( 'href' => 'stories.php',      'Title' => '_Stories2' ),
    'Links'        => array( 'href' => 'links.php',        'Title' => '_Links' ),
    'News'         => array( 'href' => 'news.php',         'Title' => '_News' ),
    'Aff'          => array( 'href' => 'affiliates.php',   'Title' => '_Affiliates',      'Check' => 'return ( getParam("enable_aff") == "on" );' ),
    'Invitefriend' => array( 'href' => 'tellfriend.php',   'Title' => '_Invite a friend', 'onclick' => 'return launchTellFriend();' ),
    'Contacts'     => array( 'href' => 'contact.php',      'Title' => '_Contacts' ),
    'Browse'       => array( 'href' => 'browse.php',       'Title' => '_Browse Profiles' ),
    'Feedback'     => array( 'href' => 'story.php',        'Title' => '_Add story' ),
    'ContactUs'    => array( 'href' => 'contact.php',      'Title' => '_contact_us' ),
    'Bookmark'     => array( 'href' => '#',                'Title' => '_Bookmark',        'onclick' => 'addBookmark(); return false;' ),
);


Now if I want to change for example when I click on Links. If I want it to go to yoursite.com/links.html instead. I would change:
    'Links'        => array( 'href' => 'links.php',        'Title' => '_Links' ),

To:
    'Links'        => array( 'href' => 'links.html',        'Title' => '_Links' ),

Save the changes and re-upload overwriting the original.

 

Do the same to any other links. Refresh page to verify your changes.
