  • Making a Sub-Forum of a Sub-Forum


    Trying to create a sub-forum of a sub-forum. Can't figure out how to do it correctly. When I do it, I my forumdisplay looks weird:

    At the top it is showing the sub-forum, and it shouldn't. Anyone know how to fix this?

        if you are trying to make it so that they have to click to get into the list of sub forums what you will need to do is create a sub forum, of a sub forum, of a sub forum (lool I know very redundant)

        in your sub forum, create another subforum, tell it to not act as a forum...

        then assign all your sub-sub forums to it as their master...

        forum 2-
        subforum (not act as forum)
        - sub sub forum 1
        - sub sub forum 2

          the style has been "customized" changed from the default vB.

          split forums, have inherit problems with sub forums on the main page and this continues on to the rest of the style.
          - with the changes made in the forumhome_forumbit_level??? templates this will effect this page also
          - is probably changed to work correctly with the changes, just there are limitations to what will work properly as far as arrangements of forums (categories and posting orders).

          to "make" this work permissives and additional template work is necessary.

          in the user cp you may also have a problem with the display of subscribed threads.

          the person who made the skin should be able to do the changes or make recommendations of how to fix the display .

          the "Sub-Forums : Ask Dr. Houser" this is how vB has this set to display, in forumdisplay "Sub-Forums : " can be removed by editing the template.
