How to get the same layout of categories and post like the one on here?

Hi guys, I can't set my discussions to show up like the ones on here. I can only get it to show the five most recent. I tried all the layouts, but still can't get it to show Can someone help me. I'm new to vanilla forums.

    modern layout

    config.php settings.

    $Configuration['Vanilla']['Discussions']['PerPage'] = '30';
    $Configuration['Vanilla']['Comments']['PerPage'] = '30'
    $Configuration['Vanilla']['Discussions']['Layout'] = 'modern';
    $Configuration['Vanilla']['Categories']['Layout'] = 'modern';

    you can also try table layout.

    $Configuration['Vanilla']['Discussions']['Layout'] = 'table';
    $Configuration['Vanilla']['Categories']['Layout'] = 'table';

    some of what you want may be theme based and the theme is proprietary.

    you can change most of what you want via.




    change number here if using "mixed layout"

    $Configuration['Vanilla']['Categories']['Layout'] = 'mixed';
    $Configuration['Vanilla']['Discussions']['PerCategory'] = '5';
