XF 1.4 set RM to be at the Home-Tab position ?

    I would like to put the RM at the Homepage.

    I have changed the "Index Page Route" towards resources/
    This is working fine.

    How do I change the position of the Nav-items, so that "Resources"-Tab is at the left position, and the "Forums"-Tab is at the right-hand-side of the "Resources"-Tab ?


    Many thanks!

    You will likely need to enable debug mode and change the execution order.

    isn't there an easier way by showing the "Home"-Tab ?

    I guess it is some route-change stuff, but I do not remember anymore.....

    edit the file: /library/XenResource/Listener/Template.php

    find this method at the bottom of the file and change the position from middle to home (as shown below)
        public static function navigationTabs(&$extraTabs$selectedTabId)
            if (
    $extraTabs['resources'] = array(
    'title' => new XenForo_Phrase('resources'),
    'href' => XenForo_Link::buildPublicLink('full:resources'),
    'position' => 'home',
    'linksTemplate' => 'resources_tab_links'

    normally, but not in this case as the "middle" position is between 'Forums' and "Members"

    The order is:
    <!-- home -->
    <!-- extra tabs: home -->
    <!-- forums -->
    <!-- extra tabs: middle -->
    <!-- members -->
    <!-- extra tabs: end -->

    Several addons are starting to include an option for this. I've added an option to most of mine. I nicked the idea from @Chris D & XFMG :)

    I see.

    If 3rd-party Addons are having this option, then I think there should be also an option build into the RM (Resource Manager) in order to make this easier.

    But I guess/hope we will see this with XF 2.0
