  • [Forum] Big trouble in little forum

    Hi.

    1. Why is this "last post" displayed? There is no forum available or lacking in the category display. What can I do to hide "last post" or coming a bugfix that shows the last post in category?

    2. That is the most important question for me. What happened here? I want it(Sub-Forums) to be displayed as in image 2.

    My settings: Options -> Forum Listings Display Options:
    Depth of Forums - Forum Home: 2
    Depth of Forums - Forum Display: 2
    Depth of Sub-Forums: 1

    Can anybody help me please?

    1. Not sure when it occurs that there is nothing in the Last Post column, but you can just edit the template to remove that if you want. To find the template to modify, do this - vboptions > General Settings > Add Template Name in HTML Comments > set to Yes . Then go back to your page and view the source code and you will see the name of the template called around your part of the code. (Sometimes the template is the one mentioned at the very top of the page source.)

    2. That is the Forum Display page, so try Depth of Forums - Forum Display: 1

      Thanks for answers

      1. I don't want remove it everywhere. This category "Main A" have in first level only categories. Each category have a forum(s) in it.
      Example above with "Main A" is a category and have only one sub-category "Category A" in it. This sub-category "Category A" have 2 sub-forums with name "Forum1" and "Forum2". ("Forum1" have a sub-forum "Test")

      Here are two ways:

      A) Hide "Last post" in categories with only categories(first level) in it
      B) Display last post of "Forum1" or "Forum2" or "Test".

      Still i think this is a bug and confusing my testers. ^^


      2. Yes, with this setting i get the sub-forum as in image2, BUT that is now my new image2 screen.

        1. If you only want to remove it for some forums, then you will need to put a condition around it. Find the template using the method I stated and then put a condition around that. If you need more help, the place to get help on modifying templates/code is over on vbulletin.org, the modification site. If you think it's a bug, then you should be entering it in the bug tracker - http://tracker.vbulletin.com/secure/...e!default.jspa

        2. Do you need Category A to be an actual Category or can it just be a forum with no posting allowed? Try that, and it should look how you want it.

          2.) Yes it do and no that definitively not what i want. Its look horrible and i'm very frustrated with my first vbulletin board.

          My board have in first level two main categories with title "Englisch forums" and "Deutsche Foren"(German forums).
          Each of this both categories have its own categories with forums and forums with subforums. in other words, take vbulletin.com and vbulletin-germany.com and put it in one board. In "English forums"(category) is vbulletin.com forum and in "Deutsche Foren"(category) is vbulletin-germany.com forum.

          With this you have this in your forum manager:

          vbulletin.com (category)
          -- vBulletin Announcements (category)
          -- -- vBulletin Announcements (forum)
          -- -- vBulletin Developer Chat Forum (forum)
          -- vBulletin Sales and Feedback (category)
          -- -- vBulletin 4 Suggestions (forum)
          -- -- -- vBulletin Suggestions and Feedback (forum)
          -- vBulletin 4 (category)
          -- vBulletin 3.8 (category)
          -- Customizing vBulletin (category)

          vbulletin-germany.com (category)
          -- vBulletin Germany (category)
          -- -- Ankündigungen (forum)
          -- -- -- Adduco E-Bulletin Archiv (forum)
          -- -- Feedback zu den Ankündigungen (forum)
          and so on

          so.. that is not possible with vbulletin4?

            The best thing to do would be set those categories at forums instead and just not allow posting. If you don't want to do that, then either modify that template to be more like the other template (by finding the templates using the method I posted) or change the CSS to make it look how you want it.

              Why is this the best thing? Have you test it? It does not look like this forum. Its look very non-professional. Set all categories here as forum and you see what i mean or i misunderstand you.

              That have nothing to do with "don't want", its look simply wrong.

              Now that vbulletin can't create such a forum, I try to set "Add Template Name in HTML Comments: YES" and edit the templates. What must I now do? I edit "forumhome_forumbit_level1_nopost" and remove "{vb:rawphrase last_post}". With this on forum.php all "last post" are missing and not only there, in "Category A" too and that is again simple wrong. This does not help me.

                  Okay, please show it to me.

                  Here my test: http://Demod7e2:[email protected]/
                  or with: http://demo.vbulletin-germany.com/
                  user: Demod7e2
                  pass: d87f5416

                  see my start post with point 1. and 2.

                  1.: http://demo.vbulletin-germany.com/ (unnecessary "last post" row)

                  2.: http://demo.vbulletin-germany.com/fo...lletin-Germany (I want "Sub-Forums: Adduco E-Bulletin Archiv" and not forum with )


                  EDIT: And look here:

                  http://demo.vbulletin-germany.com/fo...in-germany.com

                  Original http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum.php

                  both is very different, but should look the same.

                    I think vBulletin4 have a problem with this construct?
                    Only a small example:

                    category
                    -- category
                    -- -- forum
                    -- -- -- forum

                    Is this a undocumented limitation of vBulletin4?

                      No, there is no limitation. I dont understand your issue.

                      Any forum can be a forum or a category, and you can layer them.

                        "limitation" is the wrong word for this. But you can't add a category in a category without getting trash.
                        Only a stupid example for my problem:

                        start domain.tld/forum.php
                        I will see only two categories. That is "vbulletin.com" for my english users and "vbulletin-germany.com" for my german users.
                        After click on category name I will see for "vbulletin.com" a forum with exact this structure: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/ and click on category "vbulletin-germany.com" with exact this structure: http://www.vbulletin-germany.com/forum/

                        That is not possible.

                            Thanks for help, but that not help and is not the problem here. Here a demo:

                            User Name: Demoaef3
                            Password: c73f6f94

                            http://demo.vbulletin.com/forumdisplay.php?1-English

                            its only (again) a very simple example of vbulletin.com forums.

                            1. bug: "sub-forums" in top. here is no subforum, only two categories.
                            2. bug: categories with no space

                            http://i.min.us/ibVxDM.png

                            levelx template is not included in this step.

                            Your link dont work
                            I found this: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showt...+Depth+Greater

                              It works for me. Maybe I misunderstood what you are trying to do. Please feel free to ask for help with this customization at the vB mod site: www.vbulletin.org
