Solved Multiple Forums in One Design Question

Post by Derri on July 29th 2013, 12:30 am

Hi,

I've recently used the multiple forums in one tutorial to create 4 forums like here at the support forum. However like the tutorials image it comes out like this:



I was wondering what coding I'd need to add or change in order to have it like the support forum.



As you can see the username of people who reply will be in that box and having a big gap isn't very nice either.

A link to my forum if needed. http://networkfm.forumotion.net/
Also here is the tutorial I used http://help.forumotion.com/t21989-multi-forums-in-one?highlight=multiple+forums+in+one
I should add I used the video tutorial to create it but I used the coding and everything.

My suggestion is to don't use 4 categoryes , try with 2 .
And the main problem for that is because you have the images too bigger (64x64 isn't a very good size for images , try 32x32 or 48x48 ) you probably will don't have that problem.

I did change the images to be smaller they are now 48X48 to match the rest of the forum. Secondly you'll find that the way the tutorial is made is that you create a new category and put the code in the category description and them modify from their and then create the 4 forum beneath that. Watch the tutorial video and you'll see how it is done. So what you're suggesting wouldn't work.

@tommycoo still doesn't work.

Well , you can try and this , add tha in the description :

Code:
<span style="float: left; width: 30%; margin-left: 5px;"><a href="Link first forum style="float: left;"><img src="Image first forum" alt="" /></a><a href="Link first forum" class="forumtitle">First forum</a><br /> Description for first forum</span>
   <span style="float: right; width: 35%; margin-left: 10px;"><a href="Link first forum style="float: left;"><img src="Image first forum" alt="" /></a><a href="Link first forum" class="forumtitle">First forum</a><br /> Description for first forum</span>

This is got from the romanian support forum , just see here : http://help.forumgratuit.ro/t292-setari-pentru-o-categorie-cu-2-coloane-cu-cate-2-forumuri

I think to get that result I'm going to have to re do the entire process, I was reading the tutorial on the Romanian support forum and that tutorial will get this result I'm wanting. However I really don't want to have to re do the entire thing as I was hoping I'd only need to perhaps add or change things slightly rather than re-doing the entire thing.

I was wondering if any of the forumotion staff who're familiar with the coding used for the support forum's version of multiple forums in one could give me a solution where I'd only need to update what I've currently already done or tell me if I have to re-do the entire thing again. I'm only asking in the interest of saving time.

The problem is because you have 4 forums in a single forum , and if you want to move little bit down , it's impossible because you will move all the lastpost box.

You will want something similary with this :

Code:
.topiclist.forums dd.lastpost {
margin-top: 50px;
}

But the problem is becuase you can't move only one laspost box , and all to be where was .
Only solution for that is the romanian tutorial , sorry.
