Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template  

This mod adds a New Thread button or link to the navbar so that your users can start a new thread with two clicks from anywhere on the forums. First they click New Thread, then they click on the forum they want to post in. The hierarchical list of forums should respect all forum permissions, and forums where the user can post are shown as a link.

  • Show/hide large New Thread button (Settings in the Global New Thread Button Options group)
  • Show large New Thread button as Text or the default vB New Thread button () (added v1.1)
  • Show/hide navbar New Thread link
  • Show/hide forum descriptions on the listing of forums
  • All HTML is in templates (scroll down to the temlates that start with gntb_)
  • All language is in phrases (they all start with gntb_)
  • The product can be enabled/disabled in the Product Manager, rather than adding the extra overhead of an on/off switch in the options
  • Easy installation: Import the products XML file

Lightbulb REQUEST: Drop Menu List and Columns

I have custom work I need done to this mod:

REQUEST 1: Columns
I have one category that has forums named A-Z. So that is 26 forums right there! So instead of a long one column list, can we get an option to select categories to be listed in columns instead. We would need to be able to pick the number of columns so that if the forum name was longer, a two column layout would be perfect. If the forum name was shorter more columns could be set without breaking theme.

REQUEST 2: Drop Menu Forum Selection
I have other forums in another category with longer names. I really need these forums to be listed in a drop menu instead of one long list on the page. As more forums are added the longer this page is growing and too much scrolling has to happen. With a drop menu selection box that is wide enough all other forums could be included in the drop menu instead. This would allow our entire site to be on one short page without the need to scroll down on a ever growing long page.

Conclusion: (Three Display Options Per Category)
So under each category we should be able to decide if we want one of three forum listing options:
  1. Columns: multiple column listing (can select number of columns)
  2. Drop Menu Selection: drop menu listing of forums
  3. Default: simple list that is default
Are you willing to make these changes for a fee for a 3.8x site? Are you able to handle this coding yourself or do I need to look for a third party coder?

Any chance there will be a vB4 version of this? I've tried to modify it to work with vB4 to no avail.
