Forum Listings Display Options
vBulletin Options > vBulletin Options > Forum Listings Display Options
- Depth of Forums - Forum Home
Depth to show forums on forum home forum listings. If you set this value to '2', forum listings will show the current forum level and any child forums one level below (etc.)
- Depth of Forums - Forum Display
This setting does the same job as the setting above, but this time for forumdisplay.php pages, rather than forum home.
- Depth of Sub-Forums
If you have forums below the depth specified in the 'Depth of Forums' settings above, you can display them as sub-forum links in each forum's display area.
Set this value to 0 if you want to display no sub-forums.
- Show Forum Descriptions in Forum Listings
Show forum descriptions below forum titles in forum listings?
- Show Private Forums
Select 'No' here will hide private forums from users who are not allowed to access them. Users who do have permission to access them will have to log in before they can see these forums too.
This option applies to any forum listing, including the Forum Jump menu, and Search Results.
- Show Lock Icons to Users
Do you wish to have the new post indicators shown on the index page (on.gif and off.gif) be shown with locks to guests and other members who have no permission to post?
- Last Thread Title Maximum Displayed Characters
This value will chop the title of the last thread posted down to a specific number of characters for its display on a forum listing.
A value of 0 will not trim the titles at all.
- Show Moderator Column
Turns the moderator column on and off for forumhome, forumdisplay and usercp.
- Show Thread Prefix in Last Post Column?
You may choose to show a thread's prefix in the last post column, along with the title. This will increase the size of the data included in that column, however.
