I seem to be missing some features in my navigation menu. Is there a way to add tabs in admin menu(s) for editing the navigation bar? I'm missing some default tabs but also I downloaded Active forum module and I'm missing tab "edit forum profile" . I have ask for help via email and on active forums support forum and get no help. They have that tab available on their site thou. This is stopping me from some forum profile feature (signatures)


Thanks for your time

To make first some thinks more clear:

  1. NavigationMenu is the Page Navigation to your Content of your site using DNNnav or DDRmenu Provider in your Skin control (ascx file)
  2. Admin, Host, Module, Pages, are on the Ribbonbar, where different Providers can be selectet on Host Settings.
  3. If you missing some features on a module like the Active Forums is, incl. Module Navigation this is hadeled in the module and haven't most times nothing to do with the DNN Platform if self.
  4. If you installing a module there  Admin Controls are added automaticly on the install to the Module tab of the ribbon bar, if it have a classification e.g. 'common' or 'Admin' (Admin modules only).
  5. If you post any issues please post also your DNN and Module, Provider or Skin Version, we have to know what is used to help on the community.

I will now first look about your post on the Forum Forums, to look what the community have answered.  Will be back soon.

Active Forums module have not the same Features as the old DNN Forum. There is no buttom for a signature.   The Profile is getting from the DNN Profile and have not ist own on the Active Forums.

If you want to Change the template or the layout there are articles on the site, you can read and get your needed informations.

so is the old DNN forum still available with DNN version 07.00.06? Is there an Aternative forum? I have search DNN store and can not seem to find one.

I have read the templates section on and even downloaded .pdf of [TAGS]. But I cant seem to get [TAGS] in right spot of code or signatures just dont work at all. I have sent support email and made post on support forums but cant seem to get answer. Also the avatar's in forum work from you DNN profile but do not size properly in the active forum settings..... It coul dbe me thats why I ask if there was a setting on admin panel that I missed...
