You can reorder the categories so categories with same number of forums will be side by side.
Currently I have no other solution..
If I will have other idea I will implement it in the next versions.

RellecT, can you look into this?

Second, can you give as a posibility to chose what categories to use? I really don't want entire forum page split in 2 columns.
I can look into this, but I need you to send me a link to your forum so I can check what cause to the problem.

About the posibility to chose what categories to use,
It's complicated because the categories are arranged in LI lists..
so it a problem to split some of the categories.
I'm still trying find a solution for this..

Just incase any one has not got this to work you need to make sure you have a the main forum of each section set 'Act as Forum ' as NO.

This will then make the 2 columns on the main page.

I had all my forums and sub forums set as Act as Forum so did not show up untill i just added main forum headers for each section in my forum

Yes which means this is how it looks from a top level down perspective:

- Main Category (One single category of forums)
-- Forum within ^ the Main Category
--- Sub-forum ^ inside of the forum above only.
--- Another Sub-forum ^ inside of the forum above only.

- Second Category (This would be separate, normally below the one above depending on how you have them "ordered" in the admincp. In the case of this modification if you have it setup properly i.e. this was in fact a category it will now try to place this directly beside the other category listed above but each will have it's own "wrapper" per say.)
-- Forum within ^ the Second Category
--- Sub-forum ^ inside of the forum above only.
--- Another Sub-forum ^ inside of the forum above only.

One issue I am noticing with this update, is that the forum descriptions, some of them are underneath the RSS logo image.

If you see my forums http://forums.millenniumcapitalcorp.com, you can see what I mean.

Yes I see what you mean.
this bug caused not by the mod, but from the way vb have built the category templates.
This mod just split them to two categories, it does not make changes in the templates..

anyway, I already work on a fix for that..
But it can take some time because I am quite busy these days.

There's a lot that I like about this but some categories on my site have so many different number of forums that it causes a lot of blank space. Uninstalled for now because of that but this is a good idea and something I like as far as the idea of shortening the index page.
