Post subject: Need a suggestion for phpbb2 sub forums mod?

Hi all,

A few years ago I paid a coder to implement a sub forums mod on my forum that would work with my template, but in the end he said he had to give up as he couldn't get it to work.

I did a search for sub-forums and read all the topics on them but some of them seemed overwhelming and just left me with more questions than answers.

So specifically I would just like to know of the best sub-forum mod available and what precautions I should take to ensure it works with the forum style I'm using as I'm going to have a go at doing it myself. It's a feature I urgently need, but like most of us on here I really don't want to have to upgrade to phpbb3.

Thanks for your advice, it's much appreciated.

Looks like that would be the most popular as well. I have a variation of this MOD: Attached forums or pseudo sub-forums, which was continued as Improved pseudo sub-forums and finally as Easy Sub-Forums.

The version I have ended up is database compatible with these, but the code I have is massively different. I have added index page caching (my host's SQL server is not the fastest around) and most importantly keep_unread_mod.


Edit!
After a quick thread reading, it looks like I have also fixed many of the bugs with the subforums, like I've had correct icon behavior set for ages, all forums are listed on jumpbox etc.
