This is a direct port of my SMF mod to Elkarte.

This is a tool for configuring the main menu within Elkarte, allowing custom buttons to be added at will, complete with children and grandchildren menus (so, a main menu item, a dropdown and a follow-on dropdown).

  • Setup this mod at Administration Center » Configuration » Ultimate Menu.
  • Should “just work” with all other mods that add their own buttons, such as portals.
  • Dynamic by design – any menu button can change its text without a problem – no special code required.

Known issues:

  • Grandchild buttons cannot be added using ‘before’ or ‘after’; not sure how to fix this
