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.
