Proxy Link-Forum

Proxy Link-Forum 2.4.1

No permission to download
Compatible XF 2.x versions
  1. 2.2
Additional requirements
php 7.2+
Standard Library by Xon
MIT Licence
Visible branding
Converts link forums into proxies for actual forums, allowing post information, post counts, etc from the destination forum to be visible when viewing the link-forum.

Note; only works as-expected for destinations which are a Forum (not a page or anything else). Does not have much in the way of input validation.

To a front-end user, a link forum can be made nearly indistinguishable to a normal forum.

Performance Impact
This causes 1 extra query if there are link-forums on the forum-list page.

Perfect. I have a main section but several other linked sections. This keeps everything uniform and tidy. Great addon.

Much like all of Xon's addons, it works just like it says in the description. Very convenient for making the same forum section appear in more than one place so users won't miss it!
I love this Adon. For my forum it is absolutely essential. I have over a hundred forums that overlap in categories. And only with this addon, I bring order to the chaos.
