Show subcategory list UI


(Jonathan Field) #1

My forum uses the “show subcategory list” feature to display subcategories prominently when a user goes into a top-level category. However the UI as it stands shows each subcategory as a page-wide blank bar. I was wondering if there was a way to make it display like the main category page, where the category listing was limited to the left half of the screen and the right half displayed the latest posts from all subcategories in that category.

Right now it seems the choice is between subcategories being almost invisible (the default) and subcategories dominating the page to the exclusion of all else (“show subcategory list” enabled). Something in between would be great. Is there a way to do this or would this be a feature worth adding?


Higher level of granularity for category & subcategory styling

We don’t have any plans for this at the moment.

Thanks for the reply! Any chance it would get added to the plans? Seems most logical to have the subcategory UI behave like the category UI.
