How to add /users on Top Menu?

(filippo) #1

/users page works properly as a leaderboard. I was willing to add it on top menu.

Is there a easy way to do it? Maybe without code :stuck_out_tongue:

Try this in Customize - Theme - </head>

  Discourse.ExternalNavItem = Discourse.NavItem.extend({
    href : function() {
      return this.get('href');

  I18n.translations.en.js.filters.users = { title: "Users", help: "User leaderboard" };

    buildList : function(category, args) {
      var list = this._super(category, args);
      list.push(Discourse.ExternalNavItem.create({href: '/users', name: 'users'}));
      return list;

This is sort of there, the big challenge is keeping that nav around when you hit directory, far trickier problem.

Would it be a big deal to extend the functionality of the top menu site setting so that it can handle any url path (based on the site url) in a similar fashion as it now handles category/<category_name>?

This is now doable in a theme component.

At the moment, yes, it would be a very complex change.
