How to display subforums in grids

I examined that modification and did some testing. What you want requires an addon. In forum_view you have access to the current level of forums as $renderedNodes, but they are rendered as full forums instead of as subforums. To make it work with that template mod you need to render them as subforums which requires an addon. You can probably do this by extending the view (XenForo_ViewPublic_Forum_View).

Thanks a lot Jake. Kinda hope it does not have to come down to this, and just involves some template edits.
Guess I have to request this in the Request forum.

Appreciate your time and help.

Jake,
Without resorting to an addon, is there anyway we can minimize the subforum listing to save space? It does not have to look like the grid, it's fine as long as we remove all the extra bits.

Off hand, I don't think you can do that without affecting other node lists. They use the same templates.

I'm working on doing vBulletin/IPB style subforum listing most likely.

What I have so far, but still need to fix some things, and I'm not going to bother with multiple levels due to it being a huge hassle. I turned off comma's between the subforums because I need to find a different method other than using pseudo classes (It looks off using them).

Yes , Yes , Yes. For me one Level is enough.
Can´t wait

This is the only very big wish I have on my wishlist.

Will his be a stand alone product? Or work with other styles? then I will be a happy customer.
Depends on the style; if they customize templates that has been edited for the framework, they won't work with it (Some things will, some things won't).
