Show Sub-forums in Categories

Post by Exclusive » Tue Aug 14, 2018 7:43 am

HI, "If possible", is there a way to make sub-forums show below categories...? I stumbled on this page: viewtopic.php?t=2158336 but it seems this mod is not working (or maybe it's inbuilt) in phpBB 3.2.

‘mods’ won’t work in 3.2, that’s what extensions are for. What permissions have you set for the categories and forums you want to display subforums? Have a look at “List subforums in legend” and “List subforum in parent-forum’s legend”. See the explanation for each setting. Have you looked at the user guide, specifically sub forums?

There are no ‘threads’ in phpBB, they are topics.

Yes, I have enabled them. It only shows sub-forums in Forums but doesn't show sub-forums in Categories.

that is because you can't have a subforum in a category. categories have forums, then forums can have subforums.
also, a category does not even show up unless it first has a forum inside it.

your question doesn't make sense, both of those options are the same.

you can't have subforums in categories . you have categories, you have forums under categories then you can have all the sub forums, sub sub forums etc. that you want under a forum that is under a category.
