Topic: Display multi forums in the same category horizontally

Hi, all.

Is it possible to display forums in the same category horizontally?

Classic:

+------------------+
| Category Name    |
+------------------+
| Forum1           |
+------------------+
| Forum2           |
+------------------+

Horizontally:

+-------------------------------+
| Category Name                 |
+----------+--------+-----------+
| Forum1   | Forum2 | Forum3    |
+----------+--------+-----------+
| Forum4   | Forum5 | Forum6    |
+----------+--------+-----------+

Not very easily, no.
Well, technically it could be done, but it'd be somewhat hackish. And you'd have to give up a few columns (posts, topics, last post) to fit them.

Why we must give up these columns?

Horizontally:

+-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Category Name
+-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| Forum1 Name               | Forum2                     | Forum3                     |

Look like this.

Welcome to my WoW guild site, the Eternal Reach.

You can also visit Chita, a site built by me, a feral paradise for feline animals.

That'd be VERY difficult to do properly Bibby, unless you start nesting stuff. And it'd be way too much information in a small space.

I don't think so.

One forum one row, it waste too much space.

Like www.discuz.net , it nest 3 forums in a row, looks good.
