XF 1.5 Decide which subcats are shown at forum-list


Well-known member
I have a lot of subforums and dont want to see the long, long list of them. I dont want to show the pull-downs also.
I just want to shoe some of them. I know how to do that with css, but i would like to change the whole process, why query some hundreds of cats, if i need only ten.

Maybe someone knows an addon for this? Or have an idea where to start searching, please?

Hmm, then they are hidden at all, right?


Ten Forums at Level 0;
Every Forum has ten subforums, but some of them has 30.
Some of These Forums are important with a lot of threads, Posts, users, some others are not so important.

Then i want to have it like this:

Forum 1 (no Subs shown)
Forum 2 (no Subs shown)
Forum 3 (no Subs shown)
Forum 4 (no Subs shown)
Forum 5
-- Sub 5.1, sub 5.2, Sub 5.3 ...
Forum 6 (no Subs shown)
Forum 7
-- Sub 7.1, sub 7.2, Sub 7.3 ...

If a user clicks to one of the Level 0 Forums, he will see all Subs as usual.

I know how to do this with CSS, but i wonder if we can have a smaller query instead.
