The drop down is only effective for board with a limited amount of forums. Please consider to add a forum overview trough YUI treeview.

Thanks Cyb! Sweet mod!

One question: I'm using vB v3.6.x and installed THIS file (the one from this thread). Is there any kind of problem with that?

Thank you so very much!

OOOps...! Sorry for the flood...!


It is NOT working...

(it saves the settings on the admincp menu, but the hack does NO effect on newbies...)


It only worked when all setting were on default values...




*** UPDATE ***

ARRGH!!! I.E. just sucks!!! Pressed CTRL+F5 and the problem is solved...! yuck!

Thanks for this coolness!

Is there a way to only enable this for certain forums and then to only select specified forums from the dropdown?
