Supported Template Edits Re-usable Code Translations  

By default vBulletin shows the listing of sub-forums above all threads in a forum. This is OK if you have 1 or 2 sub-forums but if you have many sub-forums they can quickly fill the screen and user's won't see any threads at all without scrolling which is very annoying.

There are two ways to do this- the easy way will put ALL sub-forums below your threads... The second way is a little harder but will let you specify in which forums you want to keep the sub-forums on top and in which to move sub-forums below threads.

Live Demo: Here (No longer setup this way.)

Method 1 - Move sub-forums below threads for all forums.

Edit your forumdisplay template:

Find the code:

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

"Cut" the code so it gets deleted but copied to your "clipboard"

Now Find:


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

And above this code "paste" in the code you cut above.

Save the Template- now your sub-forums will show up below your threads in all forums that have sub-forums.


The Second Method:

If you want sub-forums to stay on top in some forums but below threads in others than do the following:

In the forumdisplay template:

Find the line:

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

and change it to:

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

Where X, Y, Z are the forumid's of forums you want the sub-forums BELOW the threads. You can have as many or as few forumid's listed here as you want, just separate each with a comma.

Now copy the entire section of text:


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

and paste the code above the line:


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

Now edit the line you just pasted in:


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

Make sure X, Y, Z are the same forumid's you specified in step 1... also remove the "!" from this line of code so you have:

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

Save your template changes.

Now you will have some forums with sub-forums below the threads and some above the threads. If you ever edit this in the future be sure to edit the forumid's in both places.

Note also: The code I listed is for the default style, it's possible in a custom style your exact code may be a little different so please try to match it up best you can and always copy and paste the actual code from your template and not the code in this example.

Tks buddy, this is mostly useful if you have a chat box in thread views also since it's down under the main threads

Cheers
