I was simply wondering how to get your thread list into two columns?

Something like so ...

Thread 1.. Thread 10..
Thread 2.. Thread 11..
Thread 3.. Thread 12..
Thread 4.. Thread 13..
... ...

This or it could be like this as well...

Thread 1.. Thread 2..
Thread 3.. Thread 4..

Both ways are fine with me... If this is possible ??

Maybe in the discussion_list.css ?

Why ?
Why not just put 20 per page ?

I assume you are going to rip out this stuff...

or it really won't fit.
your monitor might be super wide so you think there is alot of space.
I think hearing *WHY* you want to do this would be important.
What is it going to solve ?

oh thats already ripped out, almost everything is...

It just has the thread title and the views, who started the thread and when it was started is all taken off.

So its simply the Name of the thread and on the other side, is the views. I am using a fixed width so I know how much space there is, and trust me there is a lot.

The reason I am doing this is because the forums, that is being done for provide episodes for different types of shows. So people would just need to know the name of the episode, and nothing else really, and that is why I want to do that.

Thats also the reason behind putting 2 columns.

Also I was wondering if its possible to change the amount of threads that are displayed by skin bases, instead of globally changing it, is it possible to change it for each skin ? through the thread_list template or something.

Hope you've gotten your answer, and can help me :p

Well, you can Style a certain forum and leave the others alone.
See how this forum looks like an article with comments ? (not a Thread with posts).
http://8wayrun.com/threads/astaroth-and-viola-announced-at-tgs2011.8230/

Why don't you replace the forum with a Page ?
You'll need some HTML skills.
example: http://xenforo.com/community/pages/example-page/
Someone else also gave me the idea of using pages, but I have no idea on how that would work, I mean how would threads be auto added to pages and such ? Will I not need some type of PHP for that... (that i know none of).

You could possibly create a PHP script to display all the threads in a subforum in a page.
Or you could manually add them all to a Xenforo Page.

No need to automate with a script unless you would have too many to add.
