Separate Forum Categories
  • Version: 1.0.1
  • Author: RS_Jelle
  • Description: This mod separates each forum category on the forum home without any template edits. The category header is added to the top of each separated category. This will be done for ALL the styles on your forum. Have a look at the attached screenshot and everything will become clear if you don't get the point
  • Why? I created this mod because someone requested it.
  • Limitations:
    1. It's possible that this mod won't work properly on highly customized styles.
    2. The 'Last Post' column can be smaller than normal if the thread titles of the category forums are all small (you can only fix this with a template edit). Have a look at the attached screenshot to see this limitation.

A bit more about the limitations:
  • The category header bar is necessary, otherwise your layout will be screwed. It can't be done without it.
  • I will never fix these limitations. The mod is about doing it without any template edits and the only way to get around the limitations are template edits.

Nice release, I'd install this if the Forum, Last Post, Threads, and Posts bar was placed under the category bar.

That's also a limitation, then you have to do a template edit:
  1. First install the product
  2. Open forumhome_forumbit_level1_nopost and remove the following code:

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

  3. Open forumhome_seperate_forumcats and add the following code at the end of the template:

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

I did something similar but removed it because of the same limitation.

We can do this also by adding a white <tr><td></td></tr> but the border will style be shown.

Indeed, that's the first thing I tested, but that was very ugly with that border and background color -like you said-.

Thank you very much Jelle for this great hack!
Particularly beautifully: It is valid XHTML!

Limitations:
The 'Last Post' column can be smaller than normal if the thread titles of the category forums are all small (you can only fix this with a template edit).
Find in:
- FORUMDISPLAY
- FORUMHOME
- forumhome_seperate_forumcats


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


And replace it with (for example):


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

Notice how not all of the table cells (<td> tags) have width attributes. You need to give each cell a width attribute, and the total widths need to equal 100% of the horrizontal space. Percentages work well for this.

Kind Regards

Excuse for my english .
But if you change this templates, the first category (Main Category by installation default) didn't show. Is correct?

I experienced this as well.

eta: To expand... the category for the first forum disappeared and the category/forum header did not switch as expected for the remaining forums.

Any ideas?
