I never installed any version on the site before I installed the 3.8 version. I had to uninstall it when the index page wouldn't load. Then I went ahead and installed the 3.7 version and it worked fine.

I'm sorry about the login issue, you should be able to log in now.

I have installed this mod and I really wish I could get it to work!

I am confused as to how you set up Forums and Subforums.

Right now, I have several Categories. Within each category, I have forums.

Two of my Categories have a lot of forums. I want to use this mod on those two categories only! The rest of my forum list, I want left alone.

For example, One of my categories is for my sponsors and in that category, I have a forum for each sponsor.

Do I need to change the category to act as a forum? If I do that, then I won't have the category heading that I like.

Please help a confused vBulletin noob!

Thanks!

In a nutshell, if your forum displays "SubForums: ...", this mod can be used to improve that display.

At Club-R I do not see that. You need to have child forums that are deep enough (eg: If there was a "regions" category inside the "communities" that contained NE, SE, etc, then it would likely do what you are after).

What option or Mod do you use to have each Category appear in its own table? If that was off and the forum home sub-forum depth is 1, then you may also see my Mod in action.

PS: Yes it does work for categories as well.

If a forum is set to not show sub-forums, it still shows the text 'sub-forums:'

They were never really linked, but it does make sense. I'll have a look at it.

Removed as this was a small change and I did another so I simply combined them in the next version

I finally guessed what you meant... You wanted it to say "Threads/Posts" when you hover over the numbers.

PS: It was a span title rather than an alt code

1.7.3 Features

Change Log

1. Hiding SubForums now hides the SubForums: prefix as well
2. Hover over the counts to see what they are (added title to the count span)
3. Other minor coding and commenting adjustments

If you hide a sub-forum, that is actually a sub-sub-forum, then it will be hidden on the display of its parent. But it will not be hidden on the main forum index/ FORUMHOME.

Example:

- Forum A
- Forum B
-- subforum1
-- subforum2
--- subsubforum1
--- subsubforum2
--- subsubforum3
--- subsubforum4
- Forum C
- Forum D

If you hide the children of subforum2, then subsubforum1,2,3,4 will not show on the forumdisplay of Forum B. But they will still show on the main forum index.php while they should be hidden on the main forum index as well.

The option is designed to hide the SubForum display for a specified forum, not to specify a Forum that would not be visible (ie: you specify the parent). Hiding particular forums completely would be better served using forum permissions. Note also that the Forum-Jump-Menu would have them listed.

Although I do somewhat understand what you are asking, this Mod is more about cosmetics than security.

For cosmetic reasons I would like to hide some subsubforums from index.php (forum index) while showing its parent subforum. Could you add this function?

Would you not simply use the "Forum is Active" option in the actual subsubforums configuration? That hides it from view in all the displays (including the jump menu).
