I have a question regarding the usefulness of templates in xenForo for certain type of personalization.
Is it possible to personalize the forum without using plugins in the following ways:
1. Applying different theme for a single category (and subforums) on the forum main page. From what I have seen in the demo, on the main forum page the default theme is always used. I would like to present all the forums from a certain category differently (I wish to have multiple columns to be exact).
2. Filling (and saving) additional compulsory fields while posting (in chosen category only). I am guessing that files modification will be necessary at this point, at least to write additional data do the database.
Thank you for the response in advance
I have attached a screenshot from another forum showing what I meant in point 1 .
