Hello!

Another good tutorial here! I'll teach you on how to create a multi-forum like ours.
The demo is already on the forum homepage. So let's start!

1. Create a forum and fill up the following:

Forum name:
Code:
<span></span>
Description:
Code:
<table width="450"  border="0"><tr>

<td align="center">
<a href="Linkoftheforum"> Title of the Forum
<br/><br/>
<img src="Imagehere" border="0"></a>
</td>

<td align="center">
<a href="Linkoftheforum"> Title of the Forum
<br/><br/>
<img src="Imagehere" border="0"></a>
</td>

<td align="center">
<a href="Linkoftheforum"> Title of the Forum
<br/><br/>
<img src="Imagehere" border="0"></a>
</td>

<td align="center">
<a href="Linkoftheforum"> Title of the Forum
<br/><br/>
<img src="Imagehere" border="0"></a>
</td>

</tr></table>

- Now, create 4 forums inside the first forum i told you to create. But name the 4 forums like this:
Code:
<p style="display:none;">Forum name here</p>
- Then save. The output should be something like this one:

2. After creating the 4 forums, copy it's link, now go back to the first forum, then replace the "Linkoftheforum" with the forum links, change the 'Title of the forum' to your desire title, and the "Imagehere" for image url. (You can know the url of a forum by going to each forum manually, just add f#- at the end of your forum url, example: www.forumotion.com/f1- now if the f1- isn't the forum, go to the next one, /f2- and so on)

3. Go to ACP > Display > Homepage > Structure and hierarchy > Hierarchy section: Sub-level links on index: (Set to with pics) then save.

4. Now for the status icons like here, go to ACP > Pictures and Colors > Pics management > Advanced Mode > Mini-icons (Fill up the following field with your status icons images):

Mini post: (No new post icon)
Mini post - New: (New post icon)
Mini post - Locked: (Locked icon)

5. Now as you can see there is a comma below the multi forum, to remove them:
- Find this one on your index_box:
Code:
{catrow.forumrow.L_LINKS}{catrow.forumrow.LINKS}

- And replace it with this one: (Change the XXXXXX with your background color)
Code:
<span style="color: #XXXXXX; text-align: center;">{catrow.forumrow.L_LINKS}{catrow.forumrow.LINKS}</span>

- Any problems, feel free to ask questions! Happy
