Now that you have pointed it out, I remember noticing that my PlugIns subforum table start mark was not in your original page source and therefore the start div would have been omitted as well! Your solution of removing the ending div works by virtue of the fact that the start was not inserted, but it doesn't really solve the problem safely. The most likely cause for the start div not being inserted is a manual edit of the templates or using a style that is not fully compatible [I mention this in the release notes]. I'd be interested in hearing which it was for you.

My plugin inserts the start div where the <strong>$vbphrase[subforums]</strong>: is in these templates:
  • forumhome_forumbit_level1_nopost
  • forumhome_forumbit_level1_post
  • forumhome_forumbit_level2_nopost
  • forumhome_forumbit_level2_post

To go back to using an unedited version of my PlugIn you can either (a) revert the templates to their original or (b) insert <strong>$vbphrase[subforums]</strong>: into the mentioned templates just before the $forum[subforums] // Don't worry as my PlugIn has an option to then edit/remove it!

I really like this modification, so I tagged it. I will download and install it when I know if this is compatible with vB 4.0 -- can you update it for compatibility?

Thanks!

@Sorky: I agree, it definetely could be our style. I'll check - thanks.

New update available for 4.0.x (WILL NOT WORK WITH ANY 3.x version of vBulletin)

No changes to the current version for those still on 3.8.x - just letting those wanting it on 4.0.x know I have migrated it across.

The current version (this thread) is for 3.8.x and also works for 3.7.x and 3.6.x

Please add the function to display sub-forum moderators.

Has this functionality been added since then? If not, then could you please add it? I really need this.

It hasn't and has not been requested from others either - A bit beyond my desire I'm afraid.

Alfa1 25 Jan 2010 18:11

Is there any way I can motivate you to add this?

First I'd need to understand what it is you want - can you post some kind of example?

If a subforum has a moderator, then I'd like this to display in the moderator column on forum index.
Lets say a 1 forum(forum A) has a 4 subforums(subforum 1,2,3,4).
The moderator column on forum index currently lists the moderators of forum A. (Moderator A, Moderator B, Moderator C)
The sub-forum moderators of subforum 1,2,3 and 4 should be listed under the moderators of forum A. Like:
Quote:

Moderator A, Moderator B, Moderator C
Subforum Moderators: Moderator 1, Moderator 2, Moderator 3
Does that make sense?

Example:
My Forum page.

See how the last two could benefit from having the sub-forums organized like forumhome. This is the solution that I really need.

Sorry About that my forum is down for reconstruction.

This is what I currently have:
Example shown in ver3.8 using Cyb - Sub-Forum Manager
The way that the sub-forums are listed it's almost impossible for a user to ever realize that there are actually posts down below.

And this is what I'd like to achieve:
Photoshop Mock up of the same page corrected

http://www.themodelhangar.com/images...ted/subf-2.jpg
View Full Size

The Mock up is, of course, the ideal situation but anything would be better than what I have now.

That helps... This PlugIn doesn't (and wont) touch anything but the SubForum display.

That is not to say that another PlugIn could not be done to do what you are after - would take a bit of work cascading down through SubForums, but is definitely doable.

There is a lot of confusion here due to the way vBulletin refer to Forums, SubForums and Sub-SubForums. The first section in the display (which is known as the ForumList) is in reality showing a list of SubForums of the current Forum, however in the views of vBulletin they are Forums inside the current Forum. In vBulletin terms, SubForums exist as a layer below the ForumList and are displayed in the "SubForums: ......" section.

A simplistic view of this PlugIn is that it simply takes the "SubForums: ......" text and re-formats it and therefore cannot help with the issue you describe. Funnily enough, your mock-up is actually what you see in the forum above your current forum, which is where this PlugIn can do its magic.

As this PlugIn does not modify the actual ForumList section (just a small part of the contect) it cannot and it is not appropriate to have it help with what you need. You could consider modifying the forum display templates yourself or see if there is another PlugIn that would help in terms of a "Forum List Control"

Thank you for your response. I'll see what I can do to create this. I had asked this about a year ago on another mods thread and the question was ignored. Thanks again!

I get this error if i enable the addon:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


blairwarlock 28 Feb 2010 02:58

I removed the "sub-forum:" heading, but I still get "-->" being displayed above my sub-forums.

The code reads:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


How do I remove that??
