In progress Naming Category Title --> Multiple Forums In One

Post by Derri on July 30th 2013, 5:30 pm

Hi,

I've used the multiple forums in one tutorial on the english support forum and I'm having troubling naming the category.

In the category name you have to use
Code:
<Strong></Strong>
or else the coding fails and a weird link appears on the multiple forums in one in which clicked causes issues in terms of appearances.

You also can't do this
Code:
<Strong>Content Here</Strong>
as this causes the same issue as I highlighted above.

So could someone shed some light on how I'm supposed to re-name the category?

(Please note I used the video tutorial, not the thread guide)

The tutorial does not say you have to add the strong tags to the category's title.

I followed the video tutorial as it was reported that the current tutorial had issues and in the video tutorial it said to use strong tags.

If you look closely at the video, it it not a category, but a forum.

Yes I did notice that after I did the tutorial but the problem still stands as even though you are creating it as a forum by tying the strong tags this creates an "error in your category name" achieving the same affect.

So even if I change it to a forum I'm still stuck with the same problem, as the video tutorial doesn't explain how to add in a category title as you'll notice once the video tutorial is finished the persons forum doesn't have a category title anyway.

I was therefore wondering if their was some kind of code I could use to create a category title. I mean I guess with this coding used, you might not be able to have a category title but I was just wondering if there was some kind of way to have one.

This is what it looks like, exactly the way it looks like in the tutorial.

It should be like this: (You need to attach it on a category first, so a title will be shown)


1. Create a category (Any title you want to put)
2. Create a forum inside the category.
- Name it like this: (Add ; on the end of the &nbsp as it appear as space already even if i'm using code tag)
Code:
&nbsp
- Fill up the Description with the table code you have (the code of the table you're currently using on your forum)

3. Create now 4 forums inside the forum we created on step #2
4. Then copy the links of the 4 forums, then replace it with the links on the table code you have. Smile
