add Forum links to Website & Wiki

Post by Zaphob » Thu Sep 25, 2014 12:36 pm

In the top right corner, below the search function, where it says FAQ, etc, we should add links to (at least) Mudlet Website & Wiki:

* Website - http://www.mudlet.org
* Wiki - http://wiki.mudlet.org

Currently, forum users have no quick way of going to those other helpful ressources.

I think we had them and then a forums update wiped it, because the modification was done to the source code directly. I'll see if there's a better way about adding it.

All suggestions say to modify the source code. We can work around that by keeping it versioned then.

Yes, that's what you have to do - and every time you update the forums, the template gets reset.

Either that or keep a list of things too adjust after a version update. Maybe that is less hustle than adding the forum source to version control, which seems possible only for admins, who have enough work already. Let me know how I can help to realise this feature, as I find it rather helpful.

I don't think you can modify the forums from within the website, you'd need shell access to the server to implement this, unfortunately.

Seems like this issue is still open. Should be easy to fix, albeit only few people have the necessary rights.

Half a year later maybe somebody got a few minutes?
