I like the feature of UBB that lets you have those files then the forums in a cascading manner is that possible in vBulletin?or a hack that fits my description?

Something like this,is it possible to import it to vb?when you go in a thread then there is a navigation tree linking back to the main forum page?

This ain't hard at all. Simple HTML.

Example: showthread template

Find

<normalfont><b><a href="index.php">$bbtitle</A> &gt; <A HREF="forumdisplay.php?forumid=$forumid">$forumtitle</a> &gt; $threadtitle</b></normalfont>

Add images after <a href=........> and play with code to fit your needs. :)

Open showthread template in your control panel.

Replace

<normalfont><b><a href="index.php">$bbtitle</A> &gt; <A HREF="forumdisplay.php?forumid=$forumid">$forumtitle</a> &gt; $threadtitle</b></normalfont>

With something like

<table border="0" align="left" valign="top">
<tr>
<td>
<a href="index.php">
<img src="images/open.gif" border="0">
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;$bbtitle
</a>
<br>
<img src="images/tline.gif" border="0">
<img src="images/open.gif" border="0">
<A HREF="forumdisplay.php?forumid=$forumid">
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;$forumtitle
</a>
<br>
<img src="images/tline3.gif" border="0">
<img src="images/open.gif" border="0">
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;$threadtitle
</td>
</tr>
</table>

Edit forumdisplay template

Replace

<normalfont><b><a href="index.php">$bbtitle</A> &gt; $forumtitle</b><

With something like

<table border="0" align="left" valign="top">
<tr>
<td>
<a href="index.php">
<img src="images/open.gif" border="0">
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;$bbtitle
</a>
<br>
<img src="images/tline.gif" border="0">
<img src="images/open.gif" border="0">
&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;$forumtitle
</td>
</tr>
</table>


Edit paths to point to your images. I highly recommend you to backup your current code (copy n paste to some file) in case you want it back.

I wouldn't call this a hack. As said, it's simple HTML. :)

Could you post the URL to your pages? I'll take a look.
