Count subforum posts in parent count?

  • Hi,

    Is it possible to modify my forums loop (below) to count the posts in subforums in the total for the parent? My subforums are displayed inline, rather than in a separate row, and the parent forum looks a bit weedy without the “real” count.

    <?php while ( bb_forum() ) :

    global $bb_forums_loop;

    $_loop =& $bb_forums_loop;

    if($_loop->walker->depth >= 2) : ?>

    <tr<?php bb_forum_class(); ?>>

    <td colspan=”3″ class=”subforums”><?php bb_forum_pad( ‘<div class=”nest”>’ ); ?>Subforums:

    <?php

    while ($_loop->walker->depth > 1) :

    if($_loop->walker->depth > 2) {

    bb_forum();

    continue;

    }

    ?>

    “><?php forum_name(); ?><?php

    bb_forum();

    if ($_loop !== null && $_loop->walker->depth > 1)

    echo ‘, ‘;

    endwhile;

    ?>

    </td>

    </tr>

    <?php endif; ?>

    <?php if ($_loop !== null) : ?>

    <tr<?php bb_forum_class(); ?>>

    <td class=”topic”><?php bb_forum_pad( ‘<div class=”nest”>’ ); ?>“><?php forum_name(); ?>
    <?php forum_description();?><?php bb_forum_pad( ‘</div>’ ); ?></td>

    <td class=”num”><?php forum_topics(); ?></td>

    <td class=”num”><?php forum_posts(); ?></td>

    </tr>

    <?php endif; endwhile; ?>

    Thanks,

    You’d have to do a custom mysql call to get the total but yes it is possible.

    Would love to see an admin option for this in the next release though not a priority given you can stay on top of proper tagging which will provide a similar categorization effect.
