Anyone seen adding addition levels to Simple Subforums beyond the standard parent/child?

I borrowed the phpBB 3 system that uses left_id, right_id.

The Simple Subforums limitation should exist in code only. That's the modification that I used to use before I changed forum systems.

We are looking for a fairly simple way to increase the levels without having the rip the whole thing out.

I already posted a MOD that
1. will allow unlimited subforum levels,
2. is easy to install and
3. is not as "heavy" as CHMOD.

http://www.phpbb2refugees.com/viewtopic.php?t=634#5350 (Topic Subject: "I've got a few questions.")

You should be skilled enough to uninstall the "Simple Subforums" and to install this one instead. But TRY IT LOCAL FIRST, if its the Forum with the 500+ Sections I've read in another Topic of yours (the one with the caching question).

Also when "porting" from "Simple Subforums" to this one at this big, you should calculate a downtime of 1.5-2 days.

Thanks - I'll have a look at the mod to see if it is an option we can consider. Do you know how that mod functions with the JumpBox. Subforums lists things nicely (as do our header navigation buttons) with SF mod.

Thanks again

A subforum made with this MOD will be listed below its parent forum in the JumpBox, indented with "-- ":
Code:
Category 1
Forum 1
-- Subforum 1
-- -- Subforum 2
-- Subforum 3
-- -- Subforum 4
Forum 2
-- Subforum 5
-- Subforum 6


You can change this in includes/functions.php during or after the installation of the MOD:
Code:
#
#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------------
#
$boxstring_forums .=  '<option value="' . $forum_rows[$j]['forum_id'] . '"' . $selected . '>' . ($forum_rows[$j]['_sf_nest_level'] ? implode('', array_pad(array(), ($forum_rows[$j]['_sf_nest_level'] - 1) * 4, '&nbsp;')) . '--&nbsp;' : '') . $forum_rows[$j]['forum_name'] . '</option>';

#
#----------[ IN-LINE FIND ]-----------------------------------
#
--&nbsp;

#
#----------[ IN-LINE REPLACE WITH ]-----------------------------------
#
Spacing character(s) of your choice :)
