Sorting issue

Postby MGadAllah » Tue Apr 29, 2008 10:33 pm

Hi
'm just have a little problem and would like to know how to solve such a thing.
I have a category sorted as follow:
- Category 1
--Forum A
---Sub a
What I want to do is to display the --Forum A only on the index page without any links to the ---Sub a forum.
Also I want when a member open the --Forum A link to see the ---Sub a there as a legend, but do not want to display the ---Sub a in the board index like --Forum A
So how can I do so?
I've tried to change the settings for List subforums in legend: & List subforum in parent-forum’s legend: but can not display it the way I want.
Please advise.

Note: I did not posted this else where.
Thanks
MGadAllah

I'm entirely clear what you want, but you might try setting Forum A to have no parent (there is no notion of phpBB's V2 categories - they are mapped to subforums during conversion). Then in the forum listing, it will be shown under the heading "FORUMS" (or similar verbiage).

Please let me tell you what is exactly the situation I have here. I will clear it with images and hope to clear what I want to say. Please note that I am using phpbb 3.0.1.
  • This is how the Cybers category displayed on the board index of the whole board:

    Image ... ... No problem so far.
  • This is when I open the 1st main forum (the one that titled Operating Systems) .

    Image ... The problem is exactly here because the sub forums mentioned below in the image is not listed as subforum for the forum titled Microsoft.
  • As you can see there is an indicator that the forum Microsoft including sub forums, right!?
    Image
  • so as a summery ::>>> I just want to display the sub forums for Microsoft when I only open the forum Microsoft and I do not want to display the Microsoft Sub Forums in the board index.


I hope that I make it more clear now, but if u still do not follow me I can PM you with my url to do not advertise my website here.

Thanks

In the forum ACP, edit a sub forum, and you'll see the option to decide or not to display the forum in the parent forum list.

Thanks for replying mate, I did tried all trials and error for this settings but really still not showing as the way I want. Here are how I set both of them:
  • Microsoft Forum:>> List subforums in legend: & List subforum in parent-forum’s legend: both options are set to yes.
  • subforum :: vista: >> List subforums in legend: is set to No & List subforum in parent-forum’s legend: >> is set to Yes.

But this is resulted to display vista forum in the main board index, and also under the microsoft forum as a sub.
Please advise buddy how to do not display the vista subforum in the main board index and only disply it under microsoft when I browse the forum microsoft.
Thanks

It's normal, set all to no ;)
