DOWNLOAD HERE UNTIL phpBB.com MODDB IS BACK UP:

:!: :!: IMPORTANT NOTE :!: :!:
Please upgrade to 1.0.1 ASAP! This update fixes a security hole. This is a very simple fix that takes just 1 minute. To make a long story short, somehow or another a bad error managed to get into the MOD install guide. I sincerely apologize for this and I will try extra harder to make sure it doesn't happen again.

Thanks a lot ycl6 and the MOD Team for validating this! :D

FAQs
Q: EasyMOD can't find the Simple Subforums install file.
A: The Simple Subforums install file for EasyMOD is in the contrib directory. Move simple_subforums_1.0.2.txt from the contrib folder to the simple_subforums_1.0.2 folder. So move simple_subforums_1.0.2/contrib/simple_subforums_1.0.2.txt to simple_subforums_1.0.2/simple_subforums_1.0.2.txt.

Q. Okay, I got this installed, how do I make a subforum? There's no option!
A. Yes there is. ;) You just need to go to your admin admin panel->Forum Admin->Management. From there, click on the "Edit" link next to a forum, and select the parent (main) forum from the "Category / Forum" dropdown box. That's all!

Q. I need help installing this on other styles!
A. Sorry, but I am unable to provide help for installing on every style out there -- it's impossible. Just try installing it yourself. The key to installing on non-subSilver files is to look for template variables. i.e. {SOMETHING} -- in other words, capital letters in braces. Some of the HTML code (the stuff in the <blah> tags is different but the template variables are the same). Once you find a template variable you can try FINDing or ADD, AFTERing.

Q. Is this MOD EasyMOD compatible?
A. Yes, it should be. I tried my best to make it work with any phpBB installation but you could run into problems. If EasyMOD says that it couldn't FIND something, just cut the problematic FIND statement out (and it's related other action like AFTER, ADD) and do it manually.

Thanks!

Yup, it does.
The reason for that is this MOD shifts some of the processing to the template side to make fewer core code changes.

Well, I have the Cash MOD and it gave me no problems. So, I don't think it'll give you any problems either. Yes, it seems to work with Cash MOD so far. :D

Gold modification, a must-install mod! Well done, straight to the point (or straight-forward), very simple, and professional. This mod should rather be built in with future phpBB2 releases.

Example: HLRSE Mapping Forums

I don't use Cash MOD so I can't say 100% sure, but I don't think there would be any conflicts but James78 and Peter77sx both say it works okay (thanks guys for that!). :)

Just dropped in to say this works very well and doesn't stop other permissions added by other mods (example: attachment mod) from working in the subforums. I know that you guys said that the subforums only go one level deep, but I was wondering how to make it so that you could have multiple levels of subforums. You don't have to help me, I'm just curious. :D
