How do I get Subforum icons like this?

I was wondering how to get a subforum setup like this:



As you can see, this is too many links in a box and I would like to limit this. Is there some way to cut it off at a certain point, like 10 sub forums and then display something like "more..." so it's not just a huge list? I have a ton of subforums. Any recommendations?

Thanks
Regards

You could use a modification to put the subforums in a column, make it look a little nicer.

In the picture in your first post? That looks to be the default way subforums are displayed.

Do you know if there is a way to limit the default. I have a ton of really long sub-forum titles and about 60 of them and then sub-forums inside those as well.

I was wondering if there was a way to cut off the sub-forum links after like 10 of them and then have something like "more... click here to see them all"

Can I do this?

Thanks for the links, I'll experiment later and see if it helps.

Hey Kirk, I found a way around this and I thought this might be a great program you could develop as well. This is what I did:

On the main forums, I typed in my description and then: <br>
<b>79 Sub-Forums</b>

This way there isn't a long list of links and I still get the info that there are more sub-forums available if they click the link. The only problem is I have to keep track of how many forums I'm making and count them up lol!

I thought it may be simple for you to make a program that automatically counts the forums up and display the number. It would make it a lot easier than manually counting the forums and typing in a number and keeping track of it.
