  • Due to an extraordinary current load of development for our small team, and due to the current COVID-19 situation, support and inquiry channels may be delayed. Please allow up to 48 hours for response. We THANK YOU for your patience!
  • Update: Support inquiries are still behind, but are being caught up rapidly while all products are receiving new updates. Thank you for your patience during this period of limited staffing. If you need priority for an issue, it's recommended to fill out a Support Ticket rather than use the forums. However all inquiries via any channel at this website will be addressed as soon as possible.
  • Our new powerful addon, SEO & Index Tools is almost released for Early Access! Early customers will be able to beta test the addon at a lower, locked-in license price. Stay tuned for announcements!

Theme Hooks

All pro Nulumia themes now include a comprehensive set of theme hooks for entering custom markup, similar to that which is found in Wordpress. This way, you can easily add HTML to common locations throughout your theme, instead of editing Xenforo templates directly.

You can place your custom markup to available theme hooks by editing the nl_theme_hooks template:
Admin -> Appearance -> Templates -> nl_theme_hooks

As you can see, there's numerous theme hook locations for adding new markup. Simply enter your content between the macro tags for the location you want to display your code.

Available locations
  • html_top
  • above_staff_bar
  • above_topbar
  • topbar_left
  • topbar_center
  • topbar_right
  • below_topbar
  • above_header
  • below_header
  • navigation_left
  • after_visitor_links_logged
  • after_visitor_links_guest
  • after_section_links
  • above_content_wide

Previewing the locations
While logged in as Adminstrator, you can preview the theme hook locations via your front-end. First enable the setting "Enable theme hook preview toggle" via:
Admin -> Appearance -> Style Properties -> [Nulumia] Theme Settings

Next, reload your front-end and you should find a new button added to the header staff bar. Clicking this will toggle the theme hook live preview, with labels indicating each location in the nl_theme_hooks template.

If you'd like to suggest a new theme hook location, feel free to add a request at the forum!
