  • Spliting a forum in two ?

    I have 2 old vb licences I intend to reactivate for a new site

    I want to have a normal forum plus a seperate section for surveys ( polls ) but i would like them to be totally seperate, accessed from different links on the nav bar. I guess I could use two seperate forums in two different folders but that would mean registering / logging in twice and would mean keeping two forums updated instead of one.

    Ideally I would like to have the survey section as just a category of the main forum but only visible from the survey link ( and the rest invisible ) and the survey category not visible from the forum link..... but i guess this would not be possible.....

    Alternatively I suppose I could seperate the bottom category of the forum so there was something ( another header logo ? ) between it and the other categories and then have a link on the nav bar that dropped down to that part of the page..... sounds messy.

    Any thoughts on this ?

    There are hacks and modifications that you can use on to do this. you only need 1 license with those hacks that are on too.

      Thanks hornstar6969

      Would that be a hack to totally seperate them or put a gap between them ?
