Yes, I like the ACP better, too. Atm, I'm trying to get used to the file setup and how to add things to the menu. SMF uses ?action="mod/page" to access pages. MyBB just uses the main .php file associated with the mod or page. For instance, I couldn't get the blog to show in the main menu. After playing with it for a minute, I found that you can just use:

http://docskillz.com/mybblog.php

The menu part of the header template uses variables to access the mods but you can add links. Now, I just need to find the var for it or create my own link. Maybe later I can learn to add it to the mod to fix it so it does it automatically.

Wooooo Hooooooo!  :dancebun:

After more than an hour of trial and error, and a lot of over-thinking the problem  :baghead: , I figured it out.  :rofl1:

Code: [Select]
<li><a href="{$mybb->settings['bburl']}/mybblog.php">MyBBlog[/url]</li>
The other code for adding a menu item was more complicated so I followed along those lines. For instance, this is the one for ezGallery:

Code: [Select]
<li class="gallery"><a href="{$mybb->settings['bburl']}/ezgallery.php" style="background-image: url({$mybb->settings['bburl']}/images/icons/photo.png);">{$lang->ezgallery_menu}[/url]</li>
I tried modifying that to match what I thought would be the correct code for the blog but a simpler approach was needed all along...just like me to over-think things again.  :groan:

EDIT: DVZ Shoutbox installed! I didn't completed the steps.  ???

The mod does not autoinstall it so it will not break anything and you need to manually add 2 more steps listed near the bottom of this page:

I'm almost comfortable enough with it to try the merge and see how it goes. But right now I'm cooking so maybe later today.

Just A note that if you install a new theme to the MYBB, you may need to deactivate some plug-ins and reactivate again to get them to work with the new theme... glad I figured this out! :)

Sorry, I was so tired I slept most of the day away. LOL

I have to cook this morning so I'm not sure if I'll get to it today or not. However, I'll use the db from this site as a test merge.
