    I did step 1 but I don't seem to be able to make it look like the picture?

    I don't seem to get the categories to separate like in the example?

    here is mine:
    http://www.rcnow.com/vbtest/index.php?

    Am I ranking the forums wrong in the CP? Or is there not enough data to make the forum categories split apart?

    Any hwlp would be great, Thanks..Von...

            Excellent POST!!! Can't wait to make these.
            I went through the steps to find the template in the appropiate posts, please re-read them.

              Question, on the last one to change the pm message, here is what i have as my 'original' for forumhome_pmloggedin

              <tr id="cat">
              <td bgcolor="#606096" colspan="6"><a href="private.php?s=$session[sessionhash]" title="Click Here to Open Your Private Messages $inboxname"><normalfont color="#FFF788"><b>Private Messages</normalfont></b></a></td>

              <td bgcolor="#DFDFDF" align="center" valign="top"><img src="images/$lightbulb.gif" alt=""></td>
              <td bgcolor="#F1F1F1" colspan="5"><smallfont>
              <b>$bbuserinfo[username]</b> - You have $newpm[messages] new message(s) since your last visit.<br>
              (You have $unreadpm[messages] unread messages and $allpm[messages] total messages in all your folders.)</smallfont></td>
              </tr>

              I cannot find where (from the beginning of this post) instruction to find where it starts with the following?

              <tr id="cat">
              <td background="{........

              Sorry if I am missing something...but the other mod's are absolutely great! Thanks for the help!
              I think you need to apply the other tempplate mod changes first. You can't skip them and just use only the PM mod. Unless ofcourse, you know what you are doing and manually add the changes

                Your forums look like sub forums and not like the normal ones, I think this, because the on/off image in front of the board title is in the same table and not in its own.

                  That is something Bane gave me. The author of 'vBstats'. I can't share this with you. You have to contact Bane to get it.

                    I actually never bothered with depths, because they are hard coded, but oh well. I guess if you tried yourself to just remove the code from the level template it wil go away. Matter of trying out.

                      out of curiosity, are these all 2.2.7 compatible?
                      do you know yet?

                      thanks!

                        Since they are template modifications, yes. The template forumhome only had an image change according to John So I guess it should be no problem. I applied everything manually, so no change to 'really' upgrade.

                          thanks for the quick reply
                          much appreciated.

                          will go about applying these changes then.

                            hey xiphoid!
                            installed part of this (seperating categories) and i love the look of it (thanks!), but there's now an extra space above the first category as well.

                            any thoughts?

                            *edit *
                            no worries bud, i just went into the forum template and deleted the <BR> right before the main content.

                              Yesterday I finally had the time to upgrade to vB 2.2.7 final and it works great. No incompatibility or whatever.

                                only problem i've seen is if you have the seperate categories and the collapse categories hacks together, you get an extra tablerow, which i am hoping to get rid of. i've posted a question in @ vb.org and am waiting to see.

                                see attached image to see what i mean.

                                *edit*
                                taken care of.
