    To display 'Sub' Forum on forumhome / forumdisplay use the following setting

    Admin -> vBulletin Options -> vBulletin Options -> Forum Listings Display Options
    • Depth of Forums - Forum Home = 2
      Depth to show forums on forum home forum listings. If you set this value to '2', forum listings will show the current forum level and any child forums one level below (etc.)

    • Depth of Forums - Forum Display = 1
      This setting does the same job as the setting above, but this time for forumdisplay.php pages, rather than forum home.

    • Depth of Sub-Forums = 1
      If you have forums below the depth specified in the 'Depth of Forums' settings above, you can display them as sub-forum links in each forum's display area.

      Set this value to 0 if you want to display no sub-forums.


    To increase 'Sub' Forum depth, use the following steps in link below
