Title on homepage of nodebb forum

Solved Customisation
  • I have a nodebb forum but theres no place to put subheading info, briefly describing what forum is about.
    You have this on your page saying “Technology Consultancy and Advisory”
    I understand you did this with custom code?
    Please can you share how I can add this similarly

  • @eveh Welcome board 🙂

    The code you are referring to is custom written as no such functionality exists under NodeBB. However, adding the functionality is relatively trivial. Below are the required steps

    • Navigate to /admin/appearance/customise#custom-header
    • Add the below code to your header, and save once completed
    <ol id="mainbanner" class="breadcrumb"><li id="addtext">Your Title Goes Here</li></ol>
    • Navigate to /admin/appearance/customise#custom-js and add the below code, then save
    $(document).ready(function() {
        $(window).on('action:ajaxify.end', function(data) {
            // Initialise mainbanner ID, but hide it from view 
            var pathname = window.location.pathname;
            if (pathname === "/") {
                $("#addtext").text("Your Title");
            } else {}
            // If we want to add a title to a sub page, uncomment the below and adjust accordingly
            //if (pathname === "/yourpath") {
            //$("#addtext").text("Your Title");
    • Navigate to /admin/appearance/customise#custom-css and add the below CSS block
    .breadcrumb {
        right: 0;
        margin-right: auto;
        text-align: center;
        background: #0086c4;
        color: #ffffff;
        width: 100vw;
        position: relative;
        margin-left: -50vw;
        left: 50%;
        top: 50px;
        position: fixed;
        z-index: 1020;

    Note, that you will need to adjust your CSS code to suit your own site / requirements.
