[Solved] landing page and menus
I have a bunch of forums, one per class, for our senior college (ca. 15/semester) and they're fine on the forum page. I have made a small page for each and included the smart code as you explained. I made a page that lists these classes and want its listings to point to the individual pages ( https://midcoastseniorcollege.org/fall-2020-ii-pages/) . The forum is part of a much more extensive website.
I would like for people to be directed to the class listing page, not the forum, when they log in. How do I do that?
With the top menu, how do I control the contents? it looks like this. I wanted it just to have log in and log out and register. But that black Menu won't go away.
Aha! I found the landing page pointer, so that works fine. I'd still like to know how to modify the contents of the top menu bar since that black menu thing is annoying.
almost there... but can't seem to change one of the colors in the styles, despite many cache refreshes.
I knew how to switch a theme, and I do know how to do custom css and !Important. Thanks. But I have decided to just leave the menu in the sidebar of the forum pages. Since I don't want to call attention to the forum for the general public, just for the students who've registered for classes, I'm not going to show it off here, but I am certainly going to leave a glowing review for WPForo. It is so very versatile and complete!! And the pages look beautiful. I love that we can just copy/paste word texts into the pages and keep the formatting. A couple of things I'd like to see in particular - the ability for admins to move topics around inside a forum (minor) and the ability to archive the whole forum, or does that exist and I don't know it?
Thank you SO MUCH for your patient explanations.
Just when I thought it was all solved. One thing we want to put in the forums is the link to the zoom sessions of each course. Also the links to the zoom recordings of the sessions. Each course page has a line or two of explanation, maybe the syllabus, and then a shortcode linking to its corresponding forum. I don't want the forum to be "read only" for guests because then they can see and click on the zoom links. In other words, I want the FORUM part in the shortcode to be invisible, but not what's above it on the same page. Is that possible? Can you think of a workaround?
