I would like to be able to have subcategories in a category. This is possible with the settings mentioned.

When you add several sub-categories this blue block becomes even larger and ugly.

Please add functionality to display sub-categories in a better way on forum home, while displaying the subcategories as normal categories on forumdisplay.

As far as I am aware, the Plug-In works really well in the ForumHome and in Categories (see image for an example from my test systems Forum Home). There are lots of setting, both in styles and in the options to let you customize the look and feel.

For the example picture, "Forum Listings Display Options" were...
  • "Depth of Forums - Forum Home" = 1
  • "Depth of Forums - Forum Display" = 1 <- Not actually applicable for Forum Home
  • "Depth of Sub-Forums" = 2

Great job!! Can you add the "alt code" on post counts when the mouse is over?

Your test subcategory and testsubsubcategory show what I mean. They can barely be distinguished from each other. This is something that happens in vb by default. Is there a way to change the way categories are displayed on forum home, while keeping the display the same on forumdisplay?

Greetings,

Sorky - amazing addon, thank you for contributing it. Marked as installed.

However, I have a few questions. Firstly, how do I modify the text color of the sub-forum links?

Secondly, is there a way to make the sub-forum area match the style (without the blue background stuff) of the regular forums? I know this doesn't really have anything to do with your addon, but I'm sure it will make the forums look better.

Thanks :)

See...
vBulletin Options
Sorky03 - SubForum List Control - V1.6.2
SubForum list Formatting (combines with all previous settings)
You can put your HTML formatting here and it will be placed in the final HTML code for the page that is produced. Example...
SubForum Element (td) formatting
style="font-size:12px;"
produces
<td ... style="font-size:12px;">...SubForum Name...</td>

Not quite sure what you mean...

In regards to different displays on ForumHome, the "forumbit" which displays the list of available Forums, which subsequently displays the included SubForums, is common no matter where you are.

It is possible to know what forum is being displayed and thus chose different behaviors - I do that to allow for different column counts for different forums.

I do not currently modify the style attributes of the existing display outside of the SubForum part - It would be possible to do other changes, but would be more logical in another PlugIn.

If that doesn't answer you, can you sketch what you mean?

Sorky,

Thanks for this mod.

I have a 3 requests

1st one is the same request as alpha1 has.
We have to make a extra forum to make it look like my picture. (see circle 1) I had to make an extra forum. If i do not my category shows and the forum depth is gone. If i change this the whole forum is altered and i do not want this.

We wish to maintain this look but the 1 category and beneath sub forum

3rd if you cannot fix 1st how can i delete the text : sub category or even better hide the multilanguage text :)

2nd in the second circle is it possible to fill the gap with more last posts from those forums? That would make it look nicer.

Thanks for your support.

Only way vBulletin provides to "group" forums is to put them inside one, and this is all about the SubForum display after all ;). Your choice on if it is a Forum or Category. If you make it a Forum, I'd suggest you have it closed for posting.

Would require a different hack - Cybernetec has one that may suffice: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=201300

You can get rid of the "Sub-Forums:" by clearing the "Other formatting options (global) / SubForum heading.." in my PlugIns options

Thank you Sorky!!!

1.7.0 Features

21 May 2009 13:16

Change Log

1. Sort now works with SubForum children, grand-children, etc
2. Extra sort options so you can mix and match the sorting
3. Removed the indent yes/no option
4. Other minor coding and commenting adjustments

More details

1) Now fully supports alphabetic sorting with children, grand-children, etc, etc, etc

eg:
SubForum A
SubSubForum A
SubSubForum B
SubSubSubForum A
SubSubSubForum B
SubForum B
SubSubForum A
SubSubForum B
SubSubSubForum A
SubSubSubForum B
SubForum C
2) You can now have a all forums default to alphabetic-vertical sorting, but have a specific forum use forum order sorting

3) This option was not necessary, as you can simply erase the indent text from that option to get the same result ;)

Ok, I think this will do exactly what I want, however it doesn't appear to do anything on my forums.

It could just be the style I am using or something and makes this not work, but changing the config options doesn't appear to affect my forums display. And yes, I did turn the mod on in the config. ;)
