XF 1.5 Add item to FORUMS drop-down (pop-up?) menu in Nav Bar.

Our users are confused by the behavior of the FORUMS button in the Navigation Bar. When they hover over the button, they think they MUST click on something IN the drop-down menu that appears. They don't realize that they can go directly to the top level of the message board by clicking on the FORUMS button itself. I'd like to add "Forums Home" selection in that drop-down menu. But I can't find it.

In XF2 you can do this with the public navigation manager but maybe it would be a moot point as we don't support hover on things like menus and navigation tabs anymore.

In XF1, you just need to edit the template navigation and find:
<xen:hook name="navigation_tabs_forums">
then add directly above that line:
<a href="{$tabs.forums.href}">{$tabs.forums.title}</a>
That will add it to the top of the menu. If you wanted it at the bottom, place it below </xen:hook>. If you want to add a different name, such as "Forum list" you would just replace this bit {$tabs.forums.title}.
