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 was also wondering if there was a way to turn turn on/off the subforum in columns option by individual forums? if not, could this become a featiure? In some cases i would like to let the smaller (2 or less) subforum, forums in there original state, justified next to the Subforum: subtitle in the forumhome layout.

Just thought

perhaps anybody only needs a clean table-like list?

My own working version had the subforum class at the <ul> element, with margins and paddings set to zero. That way you get more control with the aperance. I have also added a clear:both underneath so you can put stuff below the list.

I'll post it later today.

If you add another <br /> after <br class="clear" /> (in v2) you should get a extra line.

As this is just a template mod, this is not possible. But if someone writes a plugin that adds a setting for this somewhere (forummanager) it would be possible to achieve through if-conditions.

You need to do this manually in your forummanager.

If you weigh them all at say 1, I believe that sorts them alpabetically?

This templatemod only tweaks vbulletins default subforumdisplay, in default horizonal order. If someone creates a plugin that does alphabetic sorting, then this template mod vil do alphabetic sorting, horizontally.

Exampels:
Default display:
a, b, c, d, e, f
After this templatemod:
a - b
c - d
e - f
I suggest that you open a modification request for alphabetic subforum sorting.
