Collapsible boards by default
« on: March 19, 2013, 01:29:36 am »
Dear Sirs


Would it be possible to give us an option in the Admin panel to make certain boards collapsed by default please ?


I want to make an extensive category listing for useful information and each sub category needs to be individualised.




Unfortunately right now if I do this, any guests or new users will see a plethora of categories in a long list which they most likely will be disillusioned by.


If I could collapse the parent category by default with an admin option, it would make this task 1000 times more fruitful.




Thank you in advance

I used to have it the past but removed it since it was not used by many people and took extra resources

That's a shame. I wonder if it can be applied on an individual basis at request ?


What I need to do is an important step for the continued growth of my forum and will be a one of a kind resource on the net. Without this feature it will make it impossible to achieve and without it the forum will never transpire into a paid subscription.


It's the one thing I can do which makes the site 'different' from 'all the other sites' many of which already have a large member base. It's difficult to compete against, and the naysayers predict it's doomed to fail without a unique offering.


I sincerely hope there is a solution.


Regards


Spas

Not sure possibly as a paid request but may take me a while to do it since I removed most of that structure not sure if I want to.

Can you tell me if I have access to my forum 'boardindex.template.php' please ?



That would enable me to change my default setting of expand/collapse


Thanks

Not to worry, I could use an ezportal homepage for the category organisation.


Thanks for you time

No since we only have one set of files for all forums.

Can I have the link to your forum and which category you want to be collapsed?
