Archived ⇒ Show categories only on forums index page


I was wondering if there's any way to have only the Forum categories visible on the primary Forum page, as opposed to having the categories and Forums showing.

Like this? Just use a category ID that you don't have and change your menu link to that URL.

Since you still have not provided a working WWW on your profile we will assume you are not using forumsPro, therefore your post moved to the appropriate forum.

No, I just have the latest version of Dragonfly with the standard Forum setup. I'm sorry, I should put the URL, but I have several I've built. This is just one of them. I suppose I should just pick one and go...

Re: ForumsPro. If I installed it, can I transfer the threads from the standard Forum module over to it?

Click on a category in your forums. Now look at the URL. In it you will find c=XX (where XX is a number). This is the category ID for that category. You should also notice that all the other categories do not have their forums shown. So if you change the ID in the URL to a category ID that you don't have (for example to 99) then all the category will show no forums.

Now you can use this URL in your menu or link to give a view of your forum where only categories are shown and no forums.

Ann,

I believe most of the questions relate to your writers guild? The forum you use most or request support for would be a good start.
If you have a specific question for just one of your sites then place the link in the post so the person providing support can go to it directly.

It really helps those who are trying to help you because many times by viewing your site they dont have to ask you so many questions.
This saves time.

Besides, its required for support. Wink

Appreciate your willingness to update this information for us.

Thanks BrokenCrust for your help.

Melinda - I'll update my information now. I just have to get the specific server specs for the server for you. I'll at least add the present URL I'm working on.

Thanks so much!

If you can not find your answers their or by using search here, you may ask in Modules & Blocks forum here, but please indicate in your subject heading you are using ForumsPro.
