Subforums

Post by funtlack »

It seems to me that it seems to be a difficult task to partake to get subforums to display on the main forum index. Would it be possible that in the Beta5 this minor problem could have a correction? Many wouldlike this, as I have asked and have knowledge of this. Thank you and three cheers.

I don't get your problem...
If you think it is a bug (what I possible got) then please post it here:
http://www.phpbb.com/bugs/queryreports. ... open&prj=4
BUT please specify your problem, and say what it is, why, on which configuration blabla. :)
The developers and the community is very welcoming this.

It is not per say a bug. It is just with difficulty I have spoken to my friends about this to get subforums (categories) to display on the main phpbbolympus forum index. In the ACP is is hard to find this particular and specific option.

Is it because I work too much, read too much code, don't sleep enough or just the alcohol, but why do I read this as:

That was not anything that I requested. I asked a simple question about the subforums of Phpbb3OlympusBeta4 my friend.

Can no one help?

There's nothing to correct.
It works fine.

Just like many things in the new admin panel, you need to learn how to do it.

In my very humble opinion it is too difficult for the averaging users of phpbb3OlympusBeta4, and this is in dire and dutiful need of correcting actions to be taken by the intenet official developing phpbb Group.

You select the parent forum that it's a subforum in and click List Forum On Index.

What's complicated about that? It's a very logical set of steps.

My official UserGroup for the most part does not have the ability to make this featurette function as the internet phpbbgroup developers have initialised it. I have received very negative feedback about this partial component in actuality.

This option is clearly visible when creating the subforum in the ACP :) I do not understand why you are having problems with this.
