How to hide the display sub-forums?

  • Hello everyone!
    Tell me how to hide sub forums?
    On the main page I have them hidden.


    Here are my settings:

    and

  • You can't hide sub-forums from being displayed when you go into a forum that has one or more.


    I wanted to do same, have sub-forums listed on forum-home page. But when you click the main parent forum not have sub-forums displayed inside that forum. So the sub forums could only be seen and entered from forum-homepage as sub-forums to another.


    That was something I used to be able to do with vBulletin 3 years ago

    You have to reduce the forum list depth as it controls if child forums are to be displayed.


    These are two different settings for a reason:

    • Forum List Depth - how far should it go when displaying child forums, and children of these and so on
    • Sub-forums - is the small list of forums that is displayed when there are more child forums, but the depth limit was exhausted


    Consider this structure:

    • Forum A
    • Forum B
      • Forum C
      • Forum D
        • Forum E
        • Forum F


    If Forum List Depth is set to 2, it will display forums A-D, but E and F will be hidden (depth = 3). But the later aren't completely hidden but will appear on the forums list as Forum E, Forum F in small below Forum D. The setting for sub-forums controls this display, if disabled all boards that do not match the depth filter won't be shown.

  • @Alexander Ebert - so are you saying by changing those settings it's possible to not have sub-forums that are displayed on the forum homepage (as small icon sub forums to another). Not being displayed as sub-forum list when you enter the parent forum? So the sub-forums are only listed on forum homepage?

    You have great control over the forum homepage in terms of displayed forums, both up to which level and how they should be displayed at some point. Entering a forum is a bit different, because it will always display at least the direct children, additional sub-forums (read children of children) will only be displayed according to the configured list depth.

    To be honest, I did not understand a bit. On the main page the Subforums can be hidden and inside the forum there?
