What it does is to allow you to take some forums off your Forum Home page and display them on a second instance of the forumhome page.

This is useful if you have a long list of forums and have some forums like archives that your users don't need to access very often.

This mod differs from Kirby's (Andreas's) in that his allows you to limit the NUMBER of forums shown per page. Mine allows you to select the specific forums to show.

I have not tested it, but I believe this will allow you to use any number of forumhome pages. You could do one per category if you show chose.

This is now a product. No code changes are required on your part. Please note that if you have microstats installed, it will yell about an uncached template. The template is not uncached. It doesn't exist. It is not creating extra queries. I am not sure how to suppress that error at this point.

My thanks to Kirby for pointing the way on how to make the functions_forumlist part of this mod a plugin instead of a code change.

Demo:

Page One
Page Two

Instructions:
1. Install the product.
2. Go to each forum and set which page to display it on. 1,2,3 etc. I have only tested 1 and 2.
3. Create links to the other instances of forumhome. Put these links where you would like them to be - in your navbar, side panel, header, tabs, whereever. Example links are the demo links posted above.
4. Contribute something to this site. Help somebody with a question or release some code of your own. Keep the giving circle going.

I sure hope so, as im about to upgrade myself as well. Ideally it would be lovely if it was updated for 3.7 and a few new features was added. But if not, lets hope it works.

How do I change this?

Cheers,

I am too having this problem. ALSO, $_GET['page'] Dosent seem to be getting passed to the $page variable, and the $_GET[page] dosent pass to subforums, even when the subforums are specified (easy fix though, just use $forum['page'] or something of the like)

Thanks for the work! (BTW why are there multiple plugins with the exact same thing? oh and the plugin can be simplified to

you have a typo, you put findex, it should be forums/index.php?page=2

That works perfectly fine for me, just ensure you have set a forum up to be on page 2 in the admincp first.
