    Hi rafalp.
    I'm a new one(student) of the misago project and deployed a self misago project on my own server.
    And there is a problem concerned with me.
    That is the 'Threads/Categories/Users'.Those buttons/Elements on the frontend pages. How can I modified them or how can I set them.Any variables to set?
    I already have checked the static - misago floder and still have no clue with it.So can you settle me with this ?
    Hope I didn't waste your time and watting for your replay.Thanks a lot >.<

    Hello Siu, thanks for asking!

    You shouldn't edit the files inside misago directory at all, unless you want to maintain your own misago fork (that is custom version of Misago).

    Instead, you should use the theme/templates directory created for you when you run misago-start.py for first time. Inside it create the misago directory to tell Misago that you want to override its html with custom ones. Then in that misago directory create the navbar.html file to tell Misago that you are overriding default navbar with your own. Open this file in your favorite code editor, and edit it to look like this. After that you will have our own navbar.html file that you can customize as you like.

    I understand that this may be an overkill for people who just want to add custom link to menu, and ion future Misago versions I will be adding more admin options for customizing theme without the need for editing any files.

    Lastly, I have moved this thread to category dedicated to discussing customizing the way Misago looks.

    Sorry rafalp.
    Sorry for a long time to reply you.
    And just recognized that you have removed the old user that I registered last time.

    I am living in China and the Localized UI of the forum is a thing to me to learn.

    Sorry again and I recognized a thing that is your forum can't sent the email ?

    And thanks for your responding.
    I created some templates file in the theme directory that you remind me to.
    And now have seen the custom-made pages.

    Thank again for your responding...

    And Cause of you updated the social register . I think it will be another huge challenge for me to learn.....

    Thanks again..And sorry about my poor English.

    I don't delete users manually. User account will be deleted automatically if they:

    • won't activate it in two days
    • decline terms of service or privacy policy
    • request account to be deleted in their options panel

    This is not a forum issue, and not Misago issue. Email filters sometimes reject emails sent from popular hosting providers classifying them as spam.

    Never apologize for what is honest effort! Your english is better than you think it is.

    I'm brand new to Misago and I love how well the setup went on DigitalOcean!

    I tried editing my navbar.html just as you directed here but my new navbar.html is just being ignored. As you said, I placed it in ~/misago_docker/misago/theme/templates/misago and edited it there. I chmod'ed it to 777 so there would be no chance of a permissions problem.

    I'm guessing I need to restart the webserver. But I can't figure out how to do that. I thought I remembered reading that somewhere this morning when I created the DigitalOcean account or when I installed Misago, but now I can't find where I saw it. I don't even know what webserver I am running. There are no apache or nginx processes.

    I'm totally confused on several points as you can see. Any help would be appreciated.

    I found the answer. To restart the server, you use "./appctl restart" from the ~/misago_docket directory. I'm sure that is obvious to everyone but me. But I thought I would put that here in case any other newbie did not remember being told that during the installation process.

    For those who don't know, apparently everything Misago is controlled by appctl. Entering it with no arguments shows all the subcommands it can do.

    Once I restarted it, my forum recognized my altered navbar.html. Thanks for the information that was already here.

    Hello Frank, glad you've solved your issue!

    Can you share what kind of modifications did you introduce to the navbar? I am trying to make common scenarios do-able with admin panel options in two versions ago I've introduced plenty of settings for the navbar, so I am curious what you've been trying to accomplish.

    Sure. As I mention in an urgent thread I just posted (please see misago-project.org/t/cookie-issue-or-something-else/833/), I am about to go live with a new website at Phrancko.com on Monday, which is hosted on AWS. I used your terrific instructions on getting started at DigitalOcean so now I have Misago running there at PhranckoForum.com. There is a link in the navbar at Phrancko.com to the forum and I wanted a link back from the forum to the main site. So I added the following to the Misago navbar:

    <a href="phrancko.com">
    Back to Phrancko.com

    I am completely new to Misago and I still have many questions, so maybe there was an easier way to do this. I'm happy for any suggestions.

    Adding links to navbar (or footer) is very common use case, so I want to add option to admin panel for those in one of next versions.

    I've done everything mentioned by Phranko, but still can't change the navbar. I have placed the modified html files to ~/misago_docker/misago/theme/templates/misago, chmod to 777, and restarted the app using ./appctl restart. I'm not sure what I'm missing.
    FYI, my project is under: root: /home/misago_docker/....

    Thank you for your help.

    Not everything can be modified. Can you share what edits did you do?
