Not Supported Template Edits  

This modification will separate the forum tables on your forumhome, a screenshot is attached.
To fully understand this modification, basic HTML knowledge is required. You can download the complete XML file from the right if you would like to install this right away (upload the XML file in the Styles & Templates section of your Admin CP).
Notice: This modification will not work properly if you use subcategories (category with parent category) or stand-alone forums (forum with no parent category, on forumhome). Subforums will work fine, ofcourse.

Modified templates
  • FORUMHOME
  • forumhome_forumbit_level1_nopost

Forum Home Overview
Open the 'Forum Home Templates > FORUMHOME' template, we only need to edit the area between the <!-- main --> tags. Here's the default code:


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

Everything between the <!-- main --> tags is one table. We are going to separate this into multiple tables.
The above code contains:
  • The guest welcome header.
  • The 'forum, last post, threads, post' area.
  • The category and forums rows ($forumbits).
  • The 'mark forums read' and 'view forum leaders' links.

Forum Home Changes
What has to be changed:
  • Guest welcome header should have it's own table.
  • Delete the 'forum, last post, threads, post' area.
  • Bottom links need their own div

Forum Home Result
Here's the final code:


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

==========

Forum Bit Overview
Now, open the 'Forum Home Templates > forumhome_forumbit_level1_nopost' template. This is the default code:


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

As you may have noticed, this code is a table row. Because we got rid of the table surrounding this table row (in the FORUMHOME template), we should now make this code into a complete table.

Forum Bit Changes
What has to be changed:
  • Add table open tag
  • The 'forum, last post, threads, post' area should be pasted before the forum rows.
  • Add table close tag
  • Add br tag at the end to create a space between the tables.

Forum Bit Result
This is the final code:


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

That's it, these two template modifications are enough to get the desired effect of separated forum rows.

lazyseller and Ev!L ErN!E: The XML file should be uploaded as a style, not as a plugin.

Question changed text, no forums now! help!

hello, i have followed the instructions to make category spacing for forums, and also backed up both the forum home templates (text copy and paste), and no forums are appearing! they are still in the forum manager, but the can't see them on the webpage!

and tried to refer back to original text in template, but still no forums! they are gone!

but again, i found out this is a mod for 3.6 and i have found 3.7

please help, my forum has no forums categories now! no forum at all!

Tim
