  • Forum Depth

    Hi, I've recently just bought vB (great software btw) and there's one thing I've been trying to figure out, it's the forum depth, what I have is this:

    Forum Category
    --Forum Guild Wars (act as category)
    --Other Games (Postable)

    Now what I was wanting is to display the Forum GW forums underneath the Forum GW header like you do generally in every other forum instead of inline with the title.

    I set the forum depth to 3 but then the inline would disappear, any ideas on this solution?

    The first pic is when depth is set to 2, the second pic is when the depth is at 3.

    That's because there are no default templates for level 3 forums. You need to create new templates named forumhome_forumbit_level3_post and forumhome_forumbit_level3_nopost. You can add a new template in your:

    Admin CP -> Styles & Templates -> Style Manager -> Add New Template (in the menu)

    You can just use the contents of the corresponding level2 templates in the level3 templates. You need to change the code slightly if you want a different appearance for level3 forums.

      Depth of Forums 3

      Glad I found this thread. I was extrememly confused when I set "Depth of Forums - Forum Home" to "3" and it did not work.
      Please consider adding a
      forumhome_forumbit_level3_post and forumhome_forumbit_level3_nopost
      to the default installation for new versions.
