One little question:

Is it possible to display the description of the subforums too?

This would be very nice for me.

Greetz!

Works great! I just installed this on an AcidTech style and it worked fine without any tweaks or anything. Nice work!

If you want to display the description, too, you should probably just make it a regular forum. After all, that's how forums are displayed. Another option would be to rename the subforum to include a short description as part of the name.

I don't think so. That depends on whether or not that information is available for the template there. But even it it where I would only make it as hover using the "title" attribute in the link tag.

This should be possible, unfortunately I don't have the time at the moment, to implement any new features.
But (without looking at the code) all you need to do is create a new <dl> entry for the new line. Shouldn't be to difficult. That's mostly just HTML.

That's pity...

In my old forum based on phpbb2, there is the possibility to show this description and I think, this looks quiet good.

You have an overview about all forums and subforums on one site (index).

Greetz!

I think it would be awesome to show the topics/posts/last posts for the subforums as well in this display option. The space is there anyway, so why not use it? ;) This would still save a lot of screen space compared to regular forums, but at the same time also give visitors some crucial information on the subforums (level of activity, whether or not a buddy of their's just made a post, etc.)

Is this possible somehow= 8-)

EDIT: Oh, and it would be the icing on the cake if the word "subforums" was on the left, and all the subforums were listed in the second column. That would save a line and for most forum titles there would still be plenty of space.

Code: Select all

<strong>{forumrow.L_SUBFORUM_STR}</strong>
Replace with

Code: Select all

<!-- <strong>{forumrow.L_SUBFORUM_STR}</strong> -->
or two columns

Code: Select all

<p class="forumdesc"><strong>{forumrow.L_SUBFORUM_STR}</strong> {forumrow.SUBFORUMS}</p>
with

Code: Select all

<table><tr>
<td width="10%"><p class="forumdesc"><strong>{forumrow.L_SUBFORUM_STR}</strong></p> </td>
<td width="90%">  {forumrow.SUBFORUMS} </td>
</tr></table>

This looks like a simple HTML/CSS problem.
Could you post the source please?

Something is either missing from the download or from the install instructions because I've installed this mod, everything went smoothly, but I don't see where to set the options for changing the way subforums appear. I'm using a template based on prosilver, however, there were no CSS edits mentioned in the install nor included in the download if there were suppose to be any. Cache has been purged and still failing to see where to set the options at.

Has anyone done any coding to include the sub-forum descriptions? I'm starting to think this might be a good idea. Thanks.

Try this (untested, but only a <br /> added:

Code: Select all

<!-- IF forumrow.SUBFORUMS and forumrow.S_LIST_SUBFORUMS --><br /><strong>{forumrow.L_SUBFORUM_STR}</strong>
	<!-- IF forumrow.S_SUBFORUM_DISPLAY === '1' --><br />
		<!-- BEGIN subforum -->
		<div class="<!-- IF forumrow.subforum.S_ROW_COUNT is odd -->column2<!-- ELSE -->column1<!-- ENDIF -->"><a href="{forumrow.subforum.U_SUBFORUM}" class="subforum <!-- IF forumrow.subforum.S_UNREAD is odd -->unread<!-- ELSE -->read<!-- ENDIF -->">{forumrow.subforum.SUBFORUM_NAME}</a></div>
		<!-- END subforum -->
	<!-- ELSEIF forumrow.S_SUBFORUM_DISPLAY === '2' --><br />
		<!-- BEGIN subforum -->
		<a href="{forumrow.subforum.U_SUBFORUM}" class="subforum <!-- IF forumrow.subforum.S_UNREAD is odd -->unread<!-- ELSE -->read<!-- ENDIF -->">{forumrow.subforum.SUBFORUM_NAME}</a><br />
		<!-- END subforum -->
	<!-- ELSE -->
		{forumrow.SUBFORUMS}<!-- If it's neither 1 nor 2, let's go with default -->
	<!-- ENDIF -->
<!-- ENDIF -->

I haven't. But it's on my agenda. However, work has priority. ;)

Did you run the SQL? Cleared the cache?
