Category Headers?

edited July 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Yes, I know I'm a pain in the arse today, but I was wondering if there is a way to group categories under some category headings. You could do it on phpBB and you can even do it on EZ Board. Is there a way to do it here? Having all the categories without headers will confuse the users since their old board did have the headers. New board here Old board here See what I mean?

    You want subcategories then? There have been discussions about it but i'm not sure if there was ever a positive outcome...try a search.

    Yeah, I did the search. I guess it never happened :(

    I've been working on something for this but am stuck when it comes to finding out what the category delegates are. Mini, can you help?
  • Options
    These are all I could find. CategoryManager and Category don't have any.

    // Called after the categories are read from the database.
    Vanilla.Control.CategoryList.php:22: $this->CallDelegate('Constructor');

    // Called before {theme_path}/categories.php is included.
    Vanilla.Control.CategoryList.php:26: $this->CallDelegate('PreRender');

    // Called after {theme_path}/categories.php is included.
    Vanilla.Control.CategoryList.php:28: $this->CallDelegate('PostRender');

    What do you mean by 'what they are'? I'm afraid I can only really help as much as digging through what I assume to be relevant bits of core codebase and scanning for the word Delegate then seeing what I guess it does...which i suppose you can manage if you're tackling this extension :)

    Thanks to both of you. I guess I had a brain freeze or something.

    If in doubt stare at pages of code until something useful pops out... (i dont necessarily recommend that technique..i've lost days of my life to it :|)

    I sort of found a solution by looking at Jazzman's DiscussionOverview add-on. So, now I am one step closer.
