My question was, why do you need a category select box?

Yes sorry, just a category select box, to replace the Post In: one, so only the categories show. I am not very good at all of this and taking things slowlt. I am sure if I mentioned this, but I am not confident enough to do a manual instal unless it is a step by stpe, I am a bit of a dummy with computers  :'( but am trying to learn  :o

[SiNaN]

Okay, but we need a reason for that. :) I mean, what will happen if I select category "A"? And what will happen if select category "B"?

[SiNaN], I think this is what you mean.

When selection the Category eg Internet Competitions from the category select box/Post in

the members then would select what subcategory they want the comeptition to go into ie;

Online Competitions **Easy to Enter**

OR

Online Competitions **Words or Less**

From the second Drop down Menu, so when they have finished posting the competition they post of the said competition is in the correct place not in the default section, meaning the post has to be moved.

I am sorry if I am not making myself very clear, but I am trying :)

[SiNaN]

Okay let me explain what I understand:

My forum has 2 categories and 4 boards:

- Category Number 1
-- Forum Number 1 For 1
-- Forum Number 2 For 1

- Category Number 2
-- Forum Number 1 For 2
-- Forum Number 2 For 2

While I'm posting an event:

Category:
- Category Number 1
- Category Number 2

Sub-Category (or what you call it):
   if [Category Number 1] is selected in category:
-- Forum Number 1 For 1
-- Forum Number 2 For 1
   if [Category Number 2] is selected in category:
-- Forum Number 1 For 2
-- Forum Number 2 For 2

Is this what you want?

I just tried to learn how to do a screen shot, and failed it appeared huge, and I couldn't work out how to get it from my computer to here  :-[

No my forum has something like 17 Categories and over 48 what I would call sub-boards, ie breaking down the competitions posted on my forum in diferent ways of entering.

I would just like the Post in: drop down menu to only include the main categories of the forum itself.

I will stop annoying you, unless I can get my hubby to help me do a screenshot tomorrow night. Sorry to have wasted your time, and thank you for trying to help me :)

[SiNaN]

But the problem is, you cannot post in categories. You can just post in forums.

No, I'm not annoyed; just trying to understand but I can't. I hope somebody else will understand and explain me in a different way or you can get me a screen shot. :)

Oh gosh I just lost everything I wrote  :'(

I'm sorry [SiNaN], I should have made it clearer I am very new to this side of forums.

I maybe should have explained. I used the words categories since to make a board/forums to 'create a category' therefore my category is my board/forum, and from there I add boards attached to them.

There are several of these boards/forums that then have even more sub-boards/forums.

I realise I wasn't an annoyance to you and I really appreciate you attempting to help this useess person on the other side of the computer screen  :)

[SiNaN]

No worries, we never think like that. Cause most of us didn't know much at the start. I remember just 3 years ago, I was bumping one of my friends on msn to install my first PHP-Nuke site.

Anyway, if we come to your question; you just want to show "forums" but not "sub-forums" or "child-boards", right?

Hi SiNaN,

I'd like to use this mod but running SMF2RC1.1 and having tried it anyway on my test forum (clean install) I get:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function db_query() in /home2/lrsoccom/public_html/test/Sources/Post.php on line 404

Is this a simple mod (for you) to upgrade for SMF2?

Thanks

[SiNaN]

This is a very simple one, one of my first mods. However, I don't have any time to update it. Feel free to try updating yourself. This topic would help you.

Sorry SiNaN. I've spent over an hour on this but my trial an error approach to php syntax is not working !!!

I've read the post and understand what needed changing but somethings wrong with the speech marks or apostrophes somewhere as I just get errors. It's going to have to wait for someone else to upgrade. I'm, sadly, not up to the job...

This is very very good mod and perfectly running. I ask  that you can put a button on main page called open new topic? This model with this mod will be very very brilliant...

So, we can open new topic no entering any board inside
SMF 2.0.13
Default Theme
Utf8 Turkish

Norv

I will think about that, sure. It sounds interesting to me, I would appreciate if anyone else can tell whether they find it a useful feature too, or not.

Actually, the more I think about it, the better that sounds. Great idea akbora.

Also, thanks Norv for a great mod, my members love it.
