  • How to remove bars between channels

    See the attached screen grab. I just upgraded from 3.8.6 to 5.1.5. How do I remove the bars between the channels (forums)?

    Try modifying the stylevar primary_module_subheader_background.

      That will just change the background. If you want to remove it, you have to hide it via custom CSS in css_additional.css

      Code:
      .forum-list-container .category-header { display: none; }

        They are category bars...they appear blank like that because no categories have been set.

        Create a category and move all the forums under that category.

          I went into channel (forum) management and my categories are still there (channel =no) with the appropriate sub forums set (channel=yes and parent set) I don't see any blank categories yet every channel and every category has a blank category bar? Is this an error during upgrade or the standard for how the upgrade handles all channels and categories and how do I remove them?

          See the attached screen grab. Even the category has an additional blank category bar.

            It can all be done in the Admincp channel manager. Recreate the categories you have on the old forum, then move each forum into the appropriate category. It's literally three clicks per forum and shouldn't take more than 20-30 minutes.

              So, delete the existing categories and make new ones? I think this is a flaw in vBulletin if it cannot migrate the existing structure. I have over 100 forums (channels).

                No, don't delete anything.

                Just for example:

                Create your category : "Audiokarma Off Topic Forums" , then move the forums "General Off Topic Forums", "Wheels, Wings, Mud, and Water", "Sports & Outdoor Adventure", "Cooking & Spirits", "Musical Instruments", and "Cameras and Photography" into that new Category.

                  What happens to the existing category? Or do I delete those after the move?


                  EDIT: just went into the admin console and tried to create a new channel and when I hit save, nothing happens. Something is broken.

                    Can you do a screenshot of your channel manager where it lists all the forums?

                  If Audiokarma Off Topic Forums already exists, click edit, set act as channel to no, then move those other forums into it, set each forum act as channel to yes.

                    It is already set channel = no. That is why I think there is an issue because even channels set to no have a an additional category bar below it.

                      OK I tried something new. I did create a AK General Forums category. I then moved one of the channels from Audiokarma General Forums. The channel I moved still has the blank category bar below it. FYI any changes I make take from 30 seconds to over a minute to happen. My old site was never this slow. We run a dual server configuration for this site.

                        Did you set the forum you moved to act as channel=yes?
                        Sounds like a server config issue on the amount of time it's taking to make changes. Mine is damn near instantaneous.

                      Yes the forum is set to act as a channel. All the setting are correct for Category, Channel and sub Channels but all have the blank category bar below them. Is this how vB5 handles an upgrade or did something mess up during the process?

                        A category has to be directly below the "Forum" channel in order to act as a category in the true sense.

                          Why do they work fine in 3.8.6 but are messed up when upgraded to 5.1.5?

                          Categories are all set to parent channel = forum
