    People will love this, well done.

    Bit confused about the implementation, however.

    It would save people a lot of work if you released these templates and modifications and exported them as an installable add-on.

    Should you ever need to, it would be a lot easier then for those people who need this if they could just upgrade an add-on.

    Just my opinion, but as a guide, you might as well have just told people to do manual template edits, as the TM system is more of a tool for add-on developers.

    Unfortunately, all of these edits are part of my "EWRcustom" addon... which comprises ALL of my custom changes to XenForo... and there are A LOT.

    For node_forum_level_2 you say find: "#$#". What exactly am I supposed to be finding/replacing?

    It find the end of the string (ie, end of the template). You can ignore that and just do the "replace" in direct template edits (its suggested).

    specifically, what template should I perform direct edit using Jaxel's example sub forum grid changes
  9. Jeremy

    Jeremy Well-Known Member

    The two templates are listed in red on the main page.

    thank for responding

    those are the suggested template modification... (they also do not identify any template to edit) you stated that recommendation was to perform direct template edit. I wanted to know what template needs to be edited in order to get sub forum grid

    found them

    As I said above, the templates you need to edit are posted in red. Template modifications need to be told which templates to edit. The first one is to be placed at the end of the template and the second is a find and replace.

    I got it... took me a while to digest what was happening. sub forum grids are pretty cool, and they take a lot of work to set up properly.

    Please provide example how this could be used with various node types.

    Ah, okay. So it just adds it to the end of the template then?

    I went ahead and made the edits. Double checked them but I'm showing subforums listed twice:


    Do I need to edit out something in node_forum_level_2?
  15. Jeremy

    Jeremy Well-Known Member

    It may be a find and replace to remove the old code. I don't use this template modification myself.

    The second listing is my subforum grids... The first listings is the built in XenForo listing; which you should disable.
  17. masterchief

    masterchief Well-Known Member

    how would you disable builtin XenForo listing?

    Anyone know how to disable/hide subforum childs for particular forums? I want to show one level of subforums for particular forums, but not their children.

    Figured this out, just edit out the following code in node_forum_level_2:

    <xen:if is="{$renderedChildren} AND {$level} == 2 AND @nodeListSubForumPopup">
                        <div class="Popup subForumsPopup">
                            <a href="{xen:link forums, $forum}" rel="Menu" class="cloaked" data-closemenu="true"><span class="dt">{xen:phrase sub_forums}:</span> {xen:number $forum.childCount}</a>
                            <div class="Menu JsOnly subForumsMenu">
                                <div class="primaryContent menuHeader">
                                    <div class="muted">{xen:phrase sub_forums}</div>
                                <ol class="secondaryContent blockLinksList">
                                <xen:foreach loop="$renderedChildren" value="$child">
                                    {xen:raw $child}
    Also that's assuming you have checked "Show sub-forums popup" in Style Propertys > Forum / Node List

    Under Style Properties > Forum / Node List, ensure that Show sub-forums popup is checked. As the description says, unchecking this option will list all sub-forums below the parent forum.
