I had this going perfect then something happened and I can't get this to display my subforms in columns right.

Forum structure is:

-Venues (form closed/header only)
--NCAA
---ACC
----team 1 ----team 2 ----team3
----team4 ----team5 ----etc

I have adjusted the forum listing display options to no avail. Any idea what happened or what am i doing wrong?

  2. vertical sorting
  3. expand/collapse
  4. more/less
  5. sub-subforums can be shown with indent

Easy - Adjust the formatting in "SubForum list Formatting (combines with all previous settings)"

use class="@@@" and define @@@ as you want it in each style ;-)

Fantastic! thank you Sorky!
Is this MOD compatible with this hack? ForumHome Category Spacing [3.8]

And one more request! as you know, it's impossible to prevent showing subforums for certain forums on homepage by default, is this feature available now on your MOD?!
Thanks

You can easily test by loading and enabling mine - If it doesn't work, let me know and I'll be happy to investigate.

My PlugIn has an option to hide specific SubForums (they must be in the "SubForums:..." section).

OUCH! I'm getting this error:

Warning: Unexpected character in input: '' (ASCII=30) state=2 in localhost:\path\to\forums\includes\functions_forumlist.php(501) : eval()'d code on line 2

Running vBulletin 3.8.4, and version 1.8.0 of this mod.

I can understand the character existing but it is usually removed - unless some other PlugIn or a manual template change is interfering.

I have that same setup verified here, so there must be something else...

Standard debugging...
  1. Disable all PlugIns except this and make sure it is working with a completely default standard style.
  2. Try with your other styles.
  3. Re-enable other Plug-Ins one by one.

I'll be happy to have a look for you if you PM me a link and login.

I'm developing on my local machine, not able to give access to that.

But I did install your mod in a default vBulletin installation, with no other changed settings or templates or add-ons. And still get this:

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

Notice the two different ASCII references. These two lines of error messages repeat themselves down the whole page of the site.
