CSS - Sub-Forum-List in Columns
Mod Version: 2.00, by hpwilhelm (Member) hpwilhelm is offline
Developer Last Online: Nov 2015 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.5.0 Rating: (8 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 255
Released: 29 Jun 2005 Last Update: 17 Sep 2006 Downloads: 594
Not Supported Template Edits  

For vb3.5.x --> vb3.6.x

Tested and working on Firefox, Safari and IE6.

What this does:
It converts the sub-forum-list into a unordered list, then by using CSS arranges the sub-forums into columns.

The columns are liquid - number of columns depends on browser-window-width or page width. The column width is set in the CSS.

Note that you need to enable sub-forums in your ACP.

3 CSS class definition added.
8 template edits.

See the zip for further instructions / full details.

Enjoy!

Update: v2.
  • Class attribute moved from <li> to <ul> element, and you now get full control through the stylesheet.
  • A clear:both style added below the list to constrict the floats, so that you can put stuff beneath the list.
Update:
  • Works for vb3.6.x with no changes.
  • Added .txt to textfile

I like to see template mods in CSS instead of hard coded tables! Nice!

Hi,

Nice, thanks for sharing One thing though, how do you get the text of the sub-forums to be a little smaller?

Thanks for all the nice feedback

I'm probably going to tweak this a little more before my board launches with vb3.5.0. So I'll update this thread when I do.

Taffy056: You can add:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

to the subforum CSS class. (replace XX with your prefered font-size) Or you can adjust the font-size for 'smallfont' in the Main vbulletin CSS.
