This is the vB4 version of my vB3 mod here:http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=249626

Demo: http://www.qapla.com/mods/forumdispl...ions?styleid=5

This is a simple template edit to move sub-forums display below the threads in a forum rather than on top like they are now. There are various reasons for this, all come down to personal preference. Personally if I have a lot of sub-forums I want users to be able to see the threads without needing to scroll down.

NOTE - For VB 4.2.1 and any version where the code does not match below, see Post # 28 for alternate instructions.

In your FORUMDISPLAY template find the code:


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

And "CUT" it to your clipboard... (Copy it and delete it but save a copy)

Now find:


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

And below that PASTE the code you cut above...

And that's it, now your sub-forums will show under your threads. See the screen shot.

Download the .txt file as a backup.

Please Mark as Installed if you use this. :)

Did you fix this because when I go to your site it looks fine to me? Screen shot attached...

If not please give me a link to where the problem is happening.

That is a free bug courtesy of vBulletin.. Ive seen it on many vB4 forums none are using this hack..

Hello,

Please I have a question is this MOD works for vBulletin 4.1.4

Thanks

BirdOPrey5 21 Jul 2011 12:37

It should.

If the code in the directions can be found, it will work.

Randomm 22 Jul 2011 20:34

This was much needed. Thanks!
Installed, rated, and nominated


Question
When in the forumbit as shown in your screenshot, the sub-forums are arranged vertically in one column
Is there a way to arrange sub-forums (5+ subforums) horizontally and be able to decide how many column you want?
Is there a mod for this? I have 10, 15, 20+ subforums under one category and it's hard for me and my members to keep scrolling just to find a specific sub-forum...

BirdOPrey5 22 Jul 2011 22:38

Thanks.

I don't know the answer to your question, I know it's not possible without a mod. I know there were mods to do it on VB 3.x, but I don't know if anyone ever made one for VB 4. Have you tried the search?

Have you tried VSa Subforum Manager - http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=236960 ?

I have and I believe I either have that installed or something similar. But that only arranges the subforums in forumhome.

Thank you for this article, I've been looking for this!! :) :D Question though, is there away to prevent certain usergroups from posting new threads in certain main forum areas, whilst still allowing only staff usergroups to post? So those forum areas don't have to be turned off, via admincp? I was thinking of something like...


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

But have it like: IF staff usergroup(5,6,7) allow posting in forums(15,16,7) deny any regular usergroups (1,2,3,4) posting in (15,16,17). Then all other forums will be allowed as normal for all usergroups... Really, it's just mainly the main forums containing sub forums. And to only allow the staff to be able to post new "rules/stickies" in those forums at the top. Without having to shut off those main forum areas from regular users posting new threads... I rather not have to turn off those areas and then turn them back on again later, if a staff needs to post new rules there or whatever... Is this possible? Thanks

Edit: I guess I could just change the forum permissions on each usergroup, denying them the ability to post in those forums lmfao... *slaps forehead* LOL! I guess I just wanted to play with code hahaha... :P Nah, I just wanted to not have to change so many permissions, although it's probably the easiest route...

Your question has nothing to do with moving sub-forums below thread listings. Please make your own thread in an appropriate section, perhaps VB4 General Discussion.
