    Hide Threads in Forum Section

    OK, here is what I want to be able to do but let me know if there is an easier way.

    I need to hide the Threads in Forum section in a parent forum. I am creating a different forum for each department and want the user to click on their department and show the subforums available. I don't want the "Threads in Forum" section.

    Here is why I am doing this. I know I can set the forum to a category and get most of the effect I want. However I do not like how the category looks especially when there is 10 in a row. I know I can change the "category strip" style but that also affects all of the title bars.

    Any help is very appreciated.

    Ok I made my own solution to this problem.

    I changed my forum display order for the domains that I did not want to show the thread section to numbers greater than 100 eg..101,102

    Then i added a conditional statement that would set the 'cancontainthreads' = false if the displayorder of the forum was greater than 100 in the forumdisplay.php

    If anyone is interested in the snippet of code, let me know and I will put it on vbulletin.org

    A picture of the result is attached.
