It could just be the style I am using or something and makes this not work, but changing the config options doesn't appear to affect my forums display. And yes, I did turn the mod on in the config.
If you'd like to PM me a link, I'll take a look

Hi Sorky
Firstly thanks for this great mod!

I have just noticed that there isn't any alt text with the collapse/expand images used to display the sub forums on the forums home page - can you advise where I can add this.

Also, I was wanting to add text "Click to expand" and "Click to contract" next to the button and again I am not sure exactly where I can add this - any suggestions?

Thanks Mate!

Good idea - Only one image that gets swapped and alt text does not seem to want to change - Had to modify things a bit and make a new version

Not quite sure about your other request

Assuming you have the width in the table, try this option to make the table use the full width available
vBulletin Options / Sorky03 - SubForum List Control - V1.5.2 / Use the full column width for the SubForum table
Otherwise you just have to use less columns as the text simply will not fit in the space available.

Thanks Sorky - v1.7.1 worked great

The other thing I was mentioning was not specific to your great mod but more of adding some text next to the collapse/expand button on my own site but I think I need to do it within your code somewhere as I can't seem to find where else to do it. One way is I could add the text in the expand/collapse image but that would lock the text colour with other styles on my site - see att

...and thanks again for a great mod!

I guessed that was what you meant but wasn't totally sure. I actually tried it, but I wasn't really impressed with the result so I didn't publish it I believe a much nicer solution would be to simply make an image with the text - that way the hover, click and alt all work the most effectively. It also saves doubling up on the text when images are disabled.

The new & improved implementation does still allow for it - If you really want to try using text, insert code at Line 342 and Line 345 - "$Sorky... = '<span style="...">Your text</span>';"

Try it and let me know - if you really want it, I can put it in to save you having a "hacked" version, but my 2c would go for the image.

What alt text is added? I am afraid that this will hurt SEO, by decreasing keyword density.

It simply allows you to add the text that appears when you hover over the image or if the image is not displayed.

If you don't want the text, don't enter it in the option.

I (and obviously many others) wanted more than other Mods did.

Glad you like it

Not currently. I could "eval" the option field, but I'm not crazy about doing that.

Sorky, I'm still working on my new site. It's not open yet. I upgraded to 1.7.1 without any problems.

I did load another mod which seems to be in conflict with "Sorky Sub Forum List Control"
The mod is "Forum Minimum Age Restriction"

When this mod is enabled the subforums on forumhome are not collapsible. I diabled it and then they were collapsible again.

I posted a message to IdanB about the conflict too. Any way you can take a look to see if these two mods could be made to work together?

Thnx, Kev
