is there a similar script for doing the same with with the actual forums?

Seems like most of the hard work is done, would be nifty to be able to space economise with the actual forums on forumhome in the same way.

Thanks - great to have this mod with no manual template changes needed.

Any chance of an option to remove the $vbphrase[subforums]:

It can be done by editing few templates.

But it's good idea to make it automatical

Next version will include option "Hide 'subforum' phrase".

This hack is great, but I see one problem.

When I chose numbers of colmns, for example 4, if I have 6 items to show, second row has only two (6-4=2) td tags and layout on IE acts weird. If you could add the rest cells filled with  , your hack will be perfect.
