I am not currently using subsilver2, but it should not be too difficult....
With prosilver it was easy because the category's forums are all contained within a single object. That is not so with subsilver2.

Hmmm... I think I could probably get it to work with a <tbody> tag.....

Finally. this is what i've been waiting for :)

*topic bookmarked* - I assume the [mod] will add the button below the forum header? if so, can it be easily moved without causing style faults?

No. You havent visited my site have you? It adds a button on the far-right of each category header. It should be elementary to move it, as long as its context is still associated with the category header.

Apologies. I was viewing the site in IE6 (not my first choice of browser). Anyway, a simple refresh did the job.

Any idea when this will be available for download?

Fantastic! Works like a charm! :D

However, i've noticed the [MOD] makes the forum category headers thicker, is there a way to keep the button there, yet restore the the category headers to their original thickness?

I noticed that myself.
That is because of the default .button2 class. You can try making up a new class for that that uses a bit smaller Font and/or button height or override it there in the template, as I did with the width.

where would the edit be?

i assume you change the width by editing this piece of code:

Code: Select all

<dd><span><input type="button" class="button2" value="{forumrow.COLLAPSE_SIGN}" onclick="flipf(this,'{forumrow.FORUM_ID}');" style="width: 20px !important"/></span></dd>
but the height? :?

The:

Code: Select all

style="width: 20px !important"
changes the width. You would change the height with a similar tag:

Code: Select all

style="width: 20px !important; height:15px"
You might have to twiddle with the font-size too.
