http://anderson.phpbbguru.net/viewtopic ... 3582#p3582
нашел, что в форумах можно указывать количество колонок для подфорумов.
но, у меня несколько другая структура получается...
категории--подкатегории (категории)---форумы
работает только для структуры
категории--подкатегории (форумы)---форумы
т.е. надо среднее звено (подкатегории) сделать форумами, но тогда можно будет создавать темы в подкатегориях (форумах) а это никак недопустимо ((

I think this would require complete code/style rewriting in regard of the board view structure, as "category" type of forum can't have "subforums" at all (see function display_forums(), especially note the line 421).
This would be the overkill for the ext, so I doubt it can be implemented here, sorry.

There's a setting while creating/editing a forum in ACP, it sounds like The number of columns for subforums list.

Is it possible to include categories in one of the next version???

it was helpful when the board have follow structure:
-German (Categorie)
-- General(Categorie)
---Discussions (forum)
---Help (forum)
--Technical(Categorie)
---Engine (forum)
---Wheels(forum)
so it is possible to see in the index as columns.
In the old Version 3.0.12 i had this feature installed :-)
