Need a different Forum layout...

    I need help with this, I have no idea what to do or where to start, but I've made a mock-up of how I'd like it to look once complete

    I'd like the above, but when hovering over "A-Class" it drops down, instead of needing to hover over the sub-forum arror (also wanting the sub-forum text gone)

    The big problem is, I only want this setup for the vehicle class category, the rest of the forums I'd like laid out as normal.

    Can this be done?

    I would think that would take quite a bit of coding. I can't see a way of doing it otherwise, IF it can be done at all.

    Oh right, that's a real shame :( thanks for your reply. I was wondering if someone could tweak that sub forum grid listing template modification to work like the image in my first post.

    It's not as simple as that. Different levels of sub forum are in an entirely different loop. In your case I can think of a way to modify the template. A lot of xen:if.

    I thought this might have been the case, I wouldn't know where to start with this type of template mod.

    My xenforo is only installed locally at my office's intranet. I'll take a look on Monday.

    Would the forum categories be changing constantly? Or new ones being added? You could just simple custom code this without using xenif's, but using direct links :).

    Downside: if you constantly have new forums added it would mean manual edits

    For the most part, they wouldn't change at all, only a new car comes out in a certain class, then it would be just a matter of adding the new car to the certain class forum.

    That's a good point. I think you'll still need xen:if tho to exclude those forums from normal loops.
