    [HowTo] [3.0.0] Put the table "indexer" below each category.

    Title: Put the table "indexer" below each category.

    Version: 1.0.0
    Category: Template Modification for vBulletin version 3.0.0 (Gold)
    Author: Floris (http://www.vBulletin.nl/)
    Description: This modification removes the "Table indexer" bar from above the forum (where it behaves as guideline) and places it below each category. It will get optimized so the width are corrected and looks more professional. When you collapse a category it will get collapsed too. Cleaning up the design.

    Installation instructions

    Goto the Admin Control Panel > Styles & Templates > Style Manager and from the dropdown box select "Edit Templates" to expand the style you want to modify.

    Select the "Forum Home Templates" and expand the group.

    Select the template "FORUMHOME".

    Find the following code:
    Code:
    <tr align="center">
    <td class="thead">&nbsp;</td>
    <td class="thead" width="100%" align="$stylevar[left]">$vbphrase[forum]</td>
    <td class="thead" width="175">$vbphrase[last_post]</td>
    <td class="thead">$vbphrase[threads]</td>
    <td class="thead">$vbphrase[posts]</td>
    <if condition="$vboptions['showmoderatorcolumn']">
    <td class="thead">$vbphrase[moderator]</td>
    </if>
    </tr>
    And delete it.

    Save the FORUMHOME template.

    Select the template "forumhome_forumbit_level1_nopost".

    Find the following code:

    Code:
    $childforumbits
    Above this, on a new line, add this code:
    Code:
    <tr align="center">
    <td class="thead" width="38">&nbsp;</td>
    <td class="thead" align="$stylevar[left]">$vbphrase[forum]</td>
    <td class="thead" width="240">$vbphrase[last_post]</td>
    <td class="thead" width="70">$vbphrase[threads]</td>
    <td class="thead" width="70">$vbphrase[posts]</td>
    <if condition="$vboptions['showmoderatorcolumn']">
    <td class="thead" width="120">$vbphrase[moderator]</td>
    </if>
    </tr>
    Save the forumhome_forumbit_level1_nopost template.

    You are done!

        These values can be changed by anybody to anything. It is just a width that covers all browsers and doesn't break,etc.

          is there a way to get the "indexer" to align correctly? the Forum, Last Post, Threads, Posts is misaligned somehow...

          I have the columns hack installed and when I do this it makes the indexer off a bit...when i change values under one it affects everything..like changing the value to simply shorten the width of the "Threads" will stretch Threads, Last Post, and the Forum.

            Make sure the other hack widths are set the same as the widths in this code.

                this is what it looks like Floris...i dont' know what to set them as...see how the Forum and Posts indexer under the subcolumns aren't fitting properly and it has caused the Threads indexer to strethc.

                This is my level1 no post after i tried different width values etc.

                  Ah, already did this. One of my first modifcations. Thanks for posting it though, it makes it easier for everyone to do it. I think it should be standard in the default templates.

                      Your other templates have been modified and you didn't adapt my code to that. Also, there seems to be a hack in place that puts stuff in colomns, obviously that won't together.

                      Revert the other forumhome templates and re-apply my code to make this work. Or adapt it yourself to the other modified templates.

                      My template mods are made for unhacked work, for one could not possible be compatible with all hacks.
