This little template modification will make your forum look much better when you create a childforum wich will point to a file on your host/other site.

Normaly it will look like the forums above (see image) but where the numbers are it would simply say "-". This little mod gives the row IF it is a forumlink a colspan="4" so it looks better. Check it out in the example beneat.

Nice idea Flup, Click Install ;)

A suggestion, you known as to replace all contents of the template by your, but if a person with fact of the modifications, that is likely to pose problem, you would not like just to put the modifcations to be applied please

If I do not mistake have to edit custom templates this way;

on top add:
<if condition="$forum['link']">
<tr align="center">
<td class="alt2"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0" /></td>
<td class="alt1Active" align="$stylevar[left]" id="f$forum[forumid]" colspan="4">
<a href="forumdisplay.php?$session[sessionurl]f=$forum[forumid]" target="_blank"><strong>$forum[title]</strong></a></td>
</tr>

<else />

and on the bottom add:
</if>

add a forum with a link to another site to your forum.
Look at it, change the template.

Think it's good? leave it, else change it.

The BEFORE screenshot is just like the forums above.
Just there's a link and no post/thread-count.

Well that's an awful lot of words and we still don't have a clue as to what this does :ermm:
