In progress Sub forums?

Post by Sion Reaver on April 8th 2013, 9:14 am


Is there way to make sub forums? Like for example, you click on a board in a category and there's a few other boards under it? I have a lot of boards, so I'm trying to think of ways to take up less space. Maybe the large space scares off members.

Thats how you create sub-Forums.

For these sub-forums to appear under the main forum, do the following.
Display>Structure & hierarchy
Sub-level links on index : With Pics.
Save.

Thanks, that helped. Only one minor problem left. When I make a sub forum, it keeps making me have to click on the other board to see the next one instead of showing them all at once when I click the sub board.

For example:

General(Main forum) then click on character bio's which activates the subforum character tracker so I can see the board under it which is character Archives; just after it is another board. Unfortunately, it only shows One board instead of all the boards connected. If I want to see the other, I have to click character archives. Then the next board shows up and I have to click on that to see it instead of it displaying all at once.

So you want all boards to show on the index, instead of having the user go through extra clicks to see all of them?

Pretty much. The sub boards are suppose to make things a bit more toned down with less scrolling(thus less work) but the clicking adds to it.

I don't know how to screen shots but a good example is compare my site and then this.

First Link

If you click character archives, it'll move to the next. However, I want to actually set it up like this:

Second Link

The boards show up under the sub forum at once without the extra clicking. Hope that makes more sense now.

Go to ACP -> Display -> structure and heirarchy, then select medium under "split categories on index." That should solve your problem.
