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

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??

If you are using vb4, use the version of my mod specifically for it ;-)

Otherwise, it looks like you have customized your forumhome_forumbit_level#_XXpost templates - Revert them and let my mod remove the title.

There are other posts below relating to that, please read through the thread. Most likely cause is a modified template that my plugin cannot work with

Using vb 3.8.4. I edited the templates in question and just removed the "-->" syntax. All good now. Thank you!

You can also clear that option completely ;)

Sub-forums viewing in Firefox
by blairwarlock
29 Mar 2010 16:49

For some reason when I view the list of sub-forums in Firefox, it doesn't display them correctly. What I mean by that is at times, some sub-forums are missing, while others are in the wrong place (sub-forums under wrong parent forum). Anybody experience this?

I'm using vBSEO Style 2.0, so not sure if that has something to do with it. Can't imagine it does as it works fine in IE (shocker).

mruppert 02 Apr 2010 05:14

is there any way to make the background clear?

metalguy639 19 Apr 2010 08:55

Thanks.

davidwkd 10 Aug 2010 11:33

hmm.. whenever i have this product enabled i can't login, plus it keeps logging me out. (yes it is this product, once disabled everything is ok) can you help me out?

Edit: I've enabled it and disabled the option allowing users to hide and show subforums. Once this option is disabled the login works.
