Can you give us some idea of why this doesn't work? I don't mind making changes to a template to support this, I just need to know where to look.

Thanks!

Is there any way to show a new post indicator on the forum homepage when new posts have been made?

This is not the right place to ask



Before installation:
-Go to AdminCP > vBulletin Options > Forum Listings Display Options > Depth of Sub-Forums - Set this to "1"
What happens to the rest of the sub-forums below 1 level? Are they being shown with this hack?
Thank you.

it looks like mine is doing that already (it shows a gold, or a blue icon next to each sub-forum).

Does not for work me either. Bummer as I would love to be able to use this. Which variables does this hack use so those of us with custom templates can add them back to our templates?

Check if you have these two templates with "," in them:
forumhome_subforumseparator_post
forumhome_subforumseparator_nopost

If you wish you can manually replace comma with this:
, <if condition="$vboptions['cybsubforumarranger_enable']">Cybernetec</if>

Thanks for this.

A small item...When this hack is installed the sub-forum font size gets slightly bigger. The sub-forum links should be surrounded by <div class="smallfont" style="margin-top:6px"> but I think the tables your hack adds loses that info. Is there a quick way to add that back?

Thats a good hack, and a lot easier than the other methods which are far more involved.
