That looks like a moderately heavy rewrite of the mod's html positioning, plus the html poitioning for the standard template core files.

In the standard mod, the child boards are simply rearranged from a continuous CSV list, into ordered columns using the same table cell.

In the screen shot you've posted, they've been moved out of the column cell where the title (and child board names) usually live, and moved into an entire new table row.

It would need some experimenting with a second instance of the default theme Curve in order to test it, but it can be done - on the surface it's just a straight rearrangement of the table layout loop to put the table, row, and cell tags in the right places, but I suspect there might be a few "curve balls" in trying to do it.

You'd actually be totally rewriting the mod to achieve that. The way it's done is specifically written to remove it from being in the regular list of children boards to minimise template changes.

They're arranged in separate lists for each column, though.

Possibly. It's been a while since I wrote this, and I won't be writing this change, sorry.

Hello again,

Quick question.  Is it possible to make an edit (CSS?) to force the text on the child board listing (only) to be a little smaller?  I would like the child board titles to be a bit smaller than the Parent's description text.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Add a rule to the CSS file it adds (Themes/default/tidyboards.css) of:

Code: [Select]
.tidy_child ul li
{
  font-size: 90%;
}

So you want to bold and underline the links in all the menu items? With or without new items in them? (I seem to recall already providing an option to bold child boards if they have new posts)
