Installed and works like a charm

A suggestion for improvment:

To use the "Status bar" for something better then the forum path
Like replace it with Forum description :bunny:

I changed all instances of:

ORDER BY displayorder DESC

To:

ORDER BY displayorder ASC

This made the forums appear in the same fashion that they do in FORUMHOME.

Also, I can see lots of room for improvement in the layout department for this mod. Maybe make it similar in looks to the MEMBERINFO - with the tables, fieldsets, etc.? Just a suggestion. ;)

This would show them reversed...

Descending -> would go from 0 to N
Ascending -> would go from N to 0

ASC is 1,2,3,4,5,...
DESC is ...,5,4,3,2,1
assuming INT field :)

I installed this addon but I can't find directory link anywhere.
Where are forums listed?

I turned on "Include this in the directory" for some categories but it didn't change anything.

Then you would find the directory at this location:

www.yourforum.com/directory.php

This would have been a perfect addition for vbadvanced. Any chances for such a module?

I think it would be a lot better if it was part of the Quick Links drop down. I guess we have to hardcode the link into the template?
