Hi, I run a completely non-profit discussion forum, and in order to keep it hosted, I (unfortunately) need to ask for donations from my members. Is there a way to add a Menu Item to the Yaf forums top Menu bar? I'd just like to add an "About" and place the donation button in a new "About" page. Any suggestions? Thanks for any help, it's always appreciated.

If you are running a YAF Standalone website, I would first look into adding a Donation link to it. I think places like PayPal have little widgets you could easily copy/paste into the forums Index page.

Thanks Zero - sorry for the delay in responding, I've been away for a couple of days. I have the donate widget from PayPal, that's not the issue. The question is actually about how (or if) I can place another menu item in the menu bar of the Yaf forum

I.e., the menu bar is as follows:

Logged in as: Coleen | My Profile | My Inbox | My Friends | My Albums | My Topics | Logout

Forum | Search | Members | Team | Help | Admin | Host | Moderate

I'd Just like to add a menu item after Forum called Support Us that will take them to my donation page. Is that possible? IF so, where would I go to do that?

Thanks for any help, as always it is very appreciated.

I think you'd have to edit the yafheader control to include a "Donate" link and then direct the link to your donation page.

Edit, to answer your question, yes, you can and yes you edit the control YafHeader.

Check it out at www.packerpeople.com/forum ... is this what you're talking about?

I added this

<li class="menuAccount"><asp:LinkButton ID="donatebutt" runat="server" Text="Donate"  PostBackUrl="http://nfl.com"></asp:LinkButton></li>

just after this

 <asp:PlaceHolder ID="menuListItems" runat="server">
                </asp:PlaceHolder>
