My forum version is 4.1.9 now and it's still same, Forum URL sent via pm.
I will check it again.

Anyway, Lynne's guide is for split forums, not categories.

My best suggestion to avoid the problem for now is set change the order of the categories and set side by side categories which have the same or close number of forums. That will reduce the blank spaces.

I've been busy lately so I didn't have much time to continue the development of this mod but I already thought of a way to fix it.
I'll try to release update as soon as possible.

I just want let you know that in few days I will release a new version (1.5), change log:
  • optimization of the code
  • no more one column with 50% width - fixed completely
  • the hack works now with categories which act as forum
  • rss / subscribe icons no more overflow the text
  • due to the css changes, the new version doesn't support IE 7 and lower (the mod will automatically disabled in those versions) - will be fixed in next version
Maybe will be include in this version
  • option to disable the mod automatically in low resolutions
Unfortunately, the gap "bug" still not fixed.
As I suggest before, for now re-order the categories and set side by side categories which have similar amount of forums to avoid the gap.
I hope find a better solution.

About the the option choose which categories to split instead of all categories,
It will not be included in this version. I already start working on it, hope to finish soon and release it in the next version which will be 2.0 .

If you have a feature request, feel free to ask.

Hmm maybe some should consider creating a blank forum per say or a Sponsor forum and simply use image code to show their ad or ad code from your software of choice? It can be a work around for a few that use ads I know and anyone else all you need to do is think... "What can I display there to rid our site of the gap yet will be helpful or beneficial at the same time?" it could be current products for example if you have a store, show a popular product such as a shirt, coffee mug or other heck whatever you can think of your all creative in different ways .

If users don't like the ads remind them they pay the bills in a nice way OR that there's plenty of software albeit add-ons for Firefox or other that can rid them of ads on all sites heck there's even a GreaseMonkey script that lets you hide all vBulletin signatures on any and every forum if you wish.

Just thought it might spark some ideas so brainstorm everyone!

Are you able to modify this so that it works on my vB 3.6.7?

Yes, maybe I will build a version for 3.X but currently I have no time for this.
If you need it fast I can build it for you but it will cost money.
Send me a P.M. if you interesting.

Send me a URL to your forum and turn the plugin active. I'll check it.
I reminds you that current version doesn't support categories that act as forums.
It will be fixed in next version.
___________________________

Update about 1.5 version:
I posted that I will release the version after some days but it didn't happen.
I've decided not release this version till I fix the compatibility for IE7 and also figure out how to disable the mod in low resolutions.
Anyway, it will take time till I release this version which the most important bug that it fix is the compatibility with categories that act as forum.
For anyone who need this fix, can contact me and I'll send him a beta version.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

I wouldn't stress the IE7 issue, unless you really want to have a go at it.

vBulletin will be ending support for IE6 and IE7 (thank god, finally)

I agree about IE6, but IE7 still have a huge amount of users that still use it.
