  • Sub Categories

    I'm having a little problem creating sub categories in my forums. I have a main category, then a sub forum which is closed to posts, & then forums under that but the bottom level subs show up on 2nd level & third. I just want them to show on the 3rd (under the sub forum). I checked the settings & everything seems to be ok. Any ideas on where I'm going wrong?

    By default, vB only allows a forum depth of 2 to be dispayed (this includes categories.) To change this:

    1. Admin CP -> Options -> vBulletin Options -> Forum Listings Display Options -> Depth of Forums -> Forum Home -> 3

    2. Manually create new templates to increase the forums displayed. You have to add template forumhome_forumbit_levelx_post and template forumhome_forumbit_levelx_nopost for each level past 2, replacing the x with the level number. For instance:


    Copy the contents of the other templates ('1' or '2') into these new templates. Then change the 'Depth of Forums' setting in the Admin CP to the appropriate number.

    Repeat as necessary for whatever depth you want.

      How do I do this in vBulletin 4.0? (my site, which is currently running VB 4).
