one question: when hiding the subforum list in the forumbit, if i leave that page and come back, it is no longer hidden. is there anyway to make this stay on a per-user basis?
Yeah - I have in my wish-list to add a cookie to remember the show/hide state. I do expect to get to it sooner or later

I have been checking out your work and think I can use this. It changes the formatting for all my forums so I must have something set wrong.

What config setting do I need to change to restore the original formatting?

I captured a couple screen shots so you can see what I mean....

It would indeed be nice to decrease the space/margin between forum names and forum description.

vBulletin Options / Sorky03 - SubForum List Control - V1.5.2 / Forum description (div) formatting [original was class="smallfont"]
Default: class="smallfont" style="margin: 10px 10px 0px 10px"
Change back to: class="smallfont"
PS: Screenshots really helped!

V1.6.1 Features

Change Log

1. Added the 'None' selection for greater clarity
2. The long awaited, often requested, cookie to remember the collapsed state
3. Other minor coding and commenting adjustments

Change 1
"None" is the same as using "Selected" with no forums in the following list
"All" is the same as using "UnSelected" with no forums in the following list.
"Selected" allows you to choose which forums the option applies to
"UnSelected" allows you to choose which forums the option DOES NOT apply to

Change 2
The following option has changed...
vBulletin Options / Sorky03 - SubForum List Control - V1.6.0 / Allow SubForum displays to be collapsed (Global)...
SubForums are shown/hidden when the page is loaded
It was a Yes/No choice but it is now a multi-state. The existing behavior remains and it has an extra choice to "Remember previous state". This uses a cookie to keep the state as the user last had it. The name has changed slightly...
vBulletin Options / Sorky03 - SubForum List Control - V1.6.0 / Allow SubForum displays to be collapsed (Global)...
How do you want the SubForums to be shown by default?
New option added...
vBulletin Options / Sorky03 - SubForum List Control - V1.6.0 / Allow SubForum displays to be collapsed (Global)...
If no cookie exists show as...

Glad you did as I'd rather be bug free Took a bit to fix once I realized where the problem was and I forgot to test it without the collapse enabled

Glad I could help


PS: Another user PM'd me that there was an issue. Found out that the "Ultimate Side Columns" Plug-In has an interaction issue with this. If anyone is using that one with this, changing the "parse_templates" order from 5 to 6 resolves it.

As kindly requested by Sorky, here it is a screen shot of sub forum list in 1, 2 and 5 columns and the alphabetically sorting (in my case only in the 5 columns listing) working well:
