Idea: list subforums on main forum index

Post by GunChleoc »

At the moment, it is hard to see which subforums a forum has, e.g. the "Experimental Corner" is well hidden below "Ideas". I suggest setting phpBB to display those on the forum listing.

For an example on how it would look like, have a look at the phpBB community forums.
  • The setting is in Admin -> Forums.
  • Click on a forum's Settings icon, then set "List subforums in legend:" to "Yes".
  • Click on the subforumns' Settings icon, then set "List subforum in parent-forum’s legend:" to "Yes".

Worth noting that I specifically chose the current display without the subforums for simplicity’s sake (not that my opinion is relevant anymore).

I'd also say it would make the front look more elaborate, which is a good thing. In my opinion it is better to see these sub-branches also in the front, perticularily for newcomers.
We are not talking about tens of subforums, so I don't see why it would flood the frontpage, it's just a new line containing 3-4 links at the maximum.
