Re: list forum name in the sidebar

Hi Marco. I’m no expert at this (one or two will be along shortly…) but I’ve found that in playing around with PHP and CSS I’ve been able to do a lot more than I thought I would.

The code you’ve posted would display not just the forum names, but most of your front-page info. I’m wondering if putting the forum names in a < div > with a class name you’ve defined in the stylesheet to format the fornt, placing, width, etc., would do it. This is a rough ide from my front-page;

<div id="my_side_bar">
<?php if ( bb_forums() ) : ?>
<table id="forumlist">
<?php while ( bb_forum() ) : ?>
<tr<?php bb_forum_class(); ?>>
<td><a href="<?php forum_link(); ?>"><?php forum_name(); ?></a><br />
<?php endwhile; ?>
<?php endif; // bb_forums() ?>

The table definition could probably be removed too, and it should(?) give a list of links with just forum names. Blind leading the blind here, but it might give you some ideas.
