  • Changing Home Display for Messages/Threads

    I'd like to change the look of the default display of threads and messages (which shows columns) on the forum home page into a narrative and could use help with which templates need to be modified and how to modify. I am attaching the photo of the current columnar display and the new display I am hoping to see.

    Thanks in advance.

    You will need to edit the forumbits. For example, edit this template:

    Admin CP -> Styles & Templates -> Style Manager -> « » -> Forum Home Templates -> forumhome_forumbit_level2_post

    Replace the red code:

    Code:
    <tr align="center">
    	<td class="alt2"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0" id="forum_statusicon_$forum[forumid]" /></td>
    	<td class="alt1Active" align="$stylevar[left]" id="f$forum[forumid]">
    		<div>
    			<a href="forumdisplay.php?$session[sessionurl]f=$forum[forumid]"><strong>$forum[title]</strong></a>
    			<if condition="$show['browsers']"><span class="smallfont">(<phrase 1="$forum[browsers]">$vbphrase[x_viewing]</phrase>)</span></if>
    		</div>
    		<if condition="$show['forumdescription']"><div class="smallfont">$forum[description]</div></if>
    		<if condition="$show['forumsubscription']"><div class="smallfont"><strong><a href="subscription.php?$session[sessionurl]do=removesubscription&amp;f=$forum[forumid]" rel="nofollow">$vbphrase[unsubscribe_from_this_forum]</a></strong></div></if>
    		<if condition="$show['subforums']"><div class="smallfont" style="margin-top:$stylevar[cellpadding]px"><strong>$vbphrase[subforums]</strong>: $forum[subforums]</div></if>
    	</td>
    	<td class="alt2" nowrap="nowrap">$forum[lastpostinfo]</td>
    	[color=red]<td class="alt1">$forum[threadcount]</td>
    	<td class="alt2">$forum[replycount]</td>[/color]
    	<if condition="$vboptions['showmoderatorcolumn']">
    	<td class="alt1"><div class="smallfont">$forum[moderators]&nbsp;</div></td>
    	</if>
    </tr>
    $childforumbits
    ...with the blue code:

    Code:
    <tr align="center">
    	<td class="alt2"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/forum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" border="0" id="forum_statusicon_$forum[forumid]" /></td>
    	<td class="alt1Active" align="$stylevar[left]" id="f$forum[forumid]">
    		<div>
    			<a href="forumdisplay.php?$session[sessionurl]f=$forum[forumid]"><strong>$forum[title]</strong></a>
    			<if condition="$show['browsers']"><span class="smallfont">(<phrase 1="$forum[browsers]">$vbphrase[x_viewing]</phrase>)</span></if>
    		</div>
    		<if condition="$show['forumdescription']"><div class="smallfont">$forum[description]</div></if>
    		<if condition="$show['forumsubscription']"><div class="smallfont"><strong><a href="subscription.php?$session[sessionurl]do=removesubscription&amp;f=$forum[forumid]" rel="nofollow">$vbphrase[unsubscribe_from_this_forum]</a></strong></div></if>
    		<if condition="$show['subforums']"><div class="smallfont" style="margin-top:$stylevar[cellpadding]px"><strong>$vbphrase[subforums]</strong>: $forum[subforums]</div></if>
    	</td>
    	<td class="alt2" nowrap="nowrap">$forum[lastpostinfo]</td>
    	[color=blue]<td colspan="2" class="alt1">$forum[threadcount] Threads<br />$forum[replycount] Posts</td>[/color]
    	<if condition="$vboptions['showmoderatorcolumn']">
    	<td class="alt1"><div class="smallfont">$forum[moderators]&nbsp;</div></td>
    	</if>
    </tr>
    $childforumbits
