Thanks for posting that - It shows very nicely how the multiple SubForum columns can be utilized.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to invite other users to share samples of how they have used this Plug-In

Real name: Brian
1.6.1 produces invalid xhtml.

eg


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

a table cannot be contained within a span. the span needs to be closed.

looks like


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

is not working properly.

Thanks for the clue - for XHTML a table cannot go within a span. I do close the span (so the code you highlighed is not the issue), just the fact that I use a span around the table. I did this as I want the "SubForums:" text AND the table to disappear.

Good news is there is a very easy fix - edit lines 271 and 275 of my product XML file and change "span" to "div" (ignore the ").

I have updated a copy on my machine as a new 1.6.2 version with this change, but as it is so minor and the product actually works (even though it produces XHTML that is technically invalid) I won't publish a formal update at this point in time (unless everyone desperately wants one).

Hey Sorky I just updated to 1.6.2 works great.

About the rss feed I remember I got that one a long time ago somewhere in the template mods section. I found it in my installed mods here is the one I use Rss Feed Icon for boards
I'm actually going to install your Rss Icon since yours is up to date and offers admin controls thanks for letting me know about it.

Hello. I want to hide/disable the forum itself to only show the sub-forums. Where can I modify that, if exist?

Thanks, nice addon

Nothing to do with this plug-in, but I can help anyway...

Change your Forum to a Category : "vBulletin Options" / "Forum manager" / <Chosen Forum> / "Act as Forum" = NO

Thank you. With this function not showing properly in forumhome, but with "forum not open" seems better although not absolutely.

You raise an interesting point Trotskid.

I would like to be able to have subcategories in a category. This is possible with the settings mentioned. But this will cause the category and sub-categories to become one ugly blue block on forum home, like Trotskid first screenshot shows. When you add several sub-categories this blue block becomes even larger and ugly.

Please add functionality to display sub-categories in a better way on forum home, while displaying the subcategories as normal categories on forumdisplay.
