Re: Forum/Category nesting, and showing sub-forums

If you change "States" from a Category to a Forum, then its subforums will be in a horizontal list, instead of a vertical list of forums. Ah. I see what you mean. The individual states must be forums, then they group together in the "U.S. States" category in the same way as they do when they are ca...

Re: Forum/Category nesting, and showing sub-forums

No. Change it from a Category to a Forum. I did. I'm not sure how you're saying this should change anything. The individual states categories are broken out into their own blue boxes. If I insert a superfluous category (say, named "Container") and move the individual state categories into it, then ...

Re: Forum/Category nesting, and showing sub-forums

Change "States" into a read-only forum. Do you mean "locked?" I tried that, but it didn't change the appearance (each State category appears as it's own block, showing its two sub-forums within the block.). If I put another category after the State category, then I get all the individual state cate...

Re: Forum/Category nesting, and showing sub-forums

Well, to start with: If you have a Catagory "States" with 50 subcategories under it, then each of those 50 would show as a rectangular forum on your index. That gets to another thing that doesn't seem right to me as a total newbie. When I define the forum structure like this: Forum: General discuss...

Forum/Category nesting, and showing sub-forums

I'm evaluating phpbb and noticed something that doesn't seem right concerning the "legend" of sub-forums displayed on ancestor indexes. 1. In addition to sub-forums, I'd like sub-categories to be displayed as a "legend" on the parent's index. For example, let's say I have: Category: States Category:...

Re: New install (only 1 style available?)

On the ACP/Styles page, does subsilver2 show as "uninstalled" ? Ah! Thank you. I assumed that because the style/theme was on disk at the time of install that it was installed. After going to the "styles" page and installing "subsilver2" it became a choice in the "board settings". Initially I didn't...

New install (only 1 style available?)

I'm new to phpbb. I just installed the latest version (3.0.6). I noticed it comes with "prosilver" and "subsilver2." But, in the Admin CP (Board Configuration -> Board Settings) only "prosilver" is listed. The only unusual thing I did during the install was to download the en-US language, and the ic...
