  • How do I make a sub-category show up as a forum?


    The topic may be a little confusing but what I want to have is a category which I placed into another category to be displayed as a normal forum, so that it will show the latest post, and won't have the gradient as background like categories have.

    The only way to accomplish this that I could think of is by putting "Act as Forum" on "Yes" and putting "Forum is Open" on "No" but then I get "There have been no posts in the last 30 days in this forum" and "Display Options" at the bottom of each of these 'category forums', since they are normal forums, and not categories.

    Is there any easy way to get what I want, or should I start modifying a lot of templates to accomplish this? And would anyone know where to start?


    edit: nevermind, I added another condition before "<!-- threads list -->" which is how I accomplished this.
