Removing/Changing 'Home' Breadcrumb

Is it possible to remove the 'Home' breadcrumb or change the link?

Our site has a 'Coming Soon' message on the main URL and there's no link to the forum on that home page.

I'd rather not have that Home button or link it to the Forum home page.

Can that be done?

Thanks.

Thanks.

Would I add that code to the file located: simple-press/forum/content/sp-common-view-functions.php ?

I'm not a code guy and it's not real clear.

 

Thanks

No you have to make the changes in your sp theme you are using...  as always, we recommend you make your theme vice editing one of ours to keep from losing changes (this will get easier in 5.5. with child themes)... see:  http://codex.simple-press.com/.....g-a-theme/

then you edit the spHead.php template file in your theme... find the use of template function sp_BreadCrumbs() and change the arguments to match the example in the codex.. ie:

sp_BreadCrumbs('tagClass=spLeft spBreadCrumbs&tree=1');

Hey Christopher,

Here is the link to Creating a Child Theme

As for the 'solution', are you looking to also remove the home link?

If so, take a look at the arguments for sp_BreadCrumbs

Further down the page you will have examples of how to change the breadcrumb behaviour including removing / changing the home link.

FYI, the Codex used to be it's own entity but has been merged within this site. You can still access it from the menu in the right sidebar "Codex Pages" and also the search directly underneath that.
