Subforums Columns

Arrange sub-forums in 2 or 3 columns.


Upload sbc.php to ./inc/plugins
Chmod ./index.php to 777
Go to Admin CP > Board Settings > Plug-in Manager > Activate

 Toggle between 2 or 3 columns.
 Choose the forumbit image you’d like for all on, off, and locked sub-forums.
 Specify your own dimension for the forumbit images.

Sub-forums will be arranged in columns instead of having them separated with commas.
You have the option to choose between 2 or 3 columns.
You may toggle between these options in
Admin CP > Board Settings > Change > Subforums in columns

By default when activating u will get 2 columns, if you deactivate then activate the columns number will be the same as you have chosen before, means if you had 3 columns and then you have deactivated then activated you will have 3 columns and not 2 as if you activate it for the 1st time.

Each sub-forum will have its own forum bit image indicating if there is or there are not any new threads in this particular sub-forum. You may also change them from the Board settings. Also you may choose your own size for these images.
When tying the image name do not include the extension (e.g. .gif), however by default you can only use the .gif images to change them you will have to edit forumbit templates > forumbit_dept3.
Also by default the images are. /images so please upload all the images you want to use to./images.

At the first time you run the plug-in the images will not appear. In case you want the images go to the settings part and just submit it again.

You may not be able to order your sub-forums correctly. Hope it will be fixed in the next release.

When deactivating make sure to chmod ./index.php to 777

You will have to edit the sbc.php file. Translating for this plug-in only takes place for the setting part.
