Node_List in node_category_level_1, I'd like two colums instead of one

Actually, it's level_2 I'm looking at (the sub forums)

For my forum, I have lots of subforums:
http://www.surreyforum.co.uk/forums/surrey-forums-surrey-discussions/

(The list of subforms is too long here before you get to the content)

I would like to make each of titles of the subforums 50% in width and float left (halve the length of the list)

To do this, I thought I would be able to use Listeners_TemplateHooks but I havent figured out what hook to use yet, any ideas?



I've splated out all the template hook names:


"ad_forum_view_above_node_list"
"node_forum_level_2_before_lastpost"
"forum_view_pagenav_before"
"ad_forum_view_above_thread_list"
"forum_view_threads_before"
"thread_list_stickies"
"ad_thread_list_below_stickies"
"thread_list_item_icon_key"
"thread_list_threads"
"thread_list_options"
"page_container_head"
"moderator_bar"
"page_container_content_top"
"ad_above_top_breadcrumb"
"page_container_breadcrumb_top"
"page_container_notices"
"page_container_content_title_bar"
"ad_above_content"
"ad_below_content"
"page_container_breadcrumb_bottom"
"ad_below_bottom_breadcrumb"
"ad_header"
"header_logo"
"navigation_tabs_forums"
"navigation_tabs_members"
"navigation_tabs_help"
"navigation_visitor_tabs_start"
"navigation_visitor_tab_links1"
"navigation_visitor_tab_links2"
"navigation_visitor_tabs_middle"
"navigation_visitor_tabs_end"
"quick_search"
"header"
"footer_links"
"footer_links_legal"
"footer"
"page_container_js_body"
"body"

I've tried most of the obvious... I hope there's a hook I can use (its not obvious from the templates)

Am I chasing my tail, should I be looking somewhere else?

yes tenants, none of those hooks can be used for node_list or node_category_level_x

gah...

looks like a simple thing to do in the mark up, just wish there was a hook here.

yeah, I see what Brogan was doing with the css, but it will work for top level and sublevel forum nodes, I just need this to work with subforum nodes

To get to the node_list template, I had to extend ControllerPublic_Forum and the point to a custom (cloned) forum_list template which then points to a custom node_list template... making headway, not really sure if this is the best way to do it (seems fiddley for a simple thing)

I eventaully did it using the above method (without needing to make changes to any core files or templates... and can be used as a plugin)

http://www.surreyforum.co.uk/forums/surrey-forums-surrey-discussions/

=> It wasn't a simple thing to do for a simple mark up change

If anyone needs this, let me know
(Note, to self, I've added it to the plug-in [SurreyForum] XenKingSide - Additional Sidebar Options)

If anyone really needs this, I will modify the above plug-in so you can turn on/off the sidebars and make it more general, I haven't released the above yet (didn't think many would need left and right side bars)
