How do I remove the "Join This Guild" link at the top of the home page?  Recruitment is closed for the next few weeks and I would prefer the link gone.

I used Mottie's footer script, but it causes the scrollbar to disappear in IE7 on Vista, preventing the visitor from viewing anything but the top portion of the page.

Thanks for any advice.

Hi Grumpy_Warrior_01!

Well, I wouldn't recommend using this script, but it should hide the arrows and text - hide not remove.
<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function(){
 $('.WfTopMenu').find('img[src*="attn_arrow"]').hide().end().find('b').hide();
})
</script>
Edit (2/4/2010): Added script tags around the code.

Thank you
, Mottie.  That did the trick in 3 different version/platform combinations of IE.  I don't have access to Firefox but I'm confident it's working there also.

To the GP developers:  It might not be a bad idea to have a checkbox on the control panel in the app section for "officially" turning the application link on or off.  Sometimes when a guild gets full they just don't want to encourage any more apps.  I have also seen guilds that use one of their message forums for apps, so they wouldn't want the link either.

Hi Paul Zuman!

Paste the script into the Footer Area (Control Panel > Custom HTML & Script > Footer Area)  if you want it to effect every page on your site (or the Banner Area)

Hello. I tried this code in the footer and it did not get rid of the JOIN THIS GUILD link at the top of the page. Any suggestions of what the problem could be?

Thank a LOT!

Hi FaithFactor!

The code should have been surrounded by an HTML script tag. Try this updated code (the part in blue was previously missing):
<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function(){
 $('.WfTopMenu').find('img[src*="attn_arrow"]').hide().end().find('b').hide();
})
</script>
