1st idea - Tabbed categories kind of like this, https://screenshots.firefox.com/KB3GuN0kVCK2VEDU/www.se7ensins.com it would be neater for me since I have 1000's of categories, but only so much branching off from a main node. Which brings me to my 2nd suggestion.
2nd suggestion - More options for sub-forums, like on the ACP you have options for one category and one node, but in order for me to correctly set up the forum look I am going for, I would need sub-forums within a sub-forum like so, https://screenshots.firefox.com/cUdOY3n8V39hM69P/www.se7ensins.com
I understand that admins may not have time to even consider this, but it would really help me out, or maybe someone could help me do it, thank you!

Thank you for your suggestion, I believe this would be a great addition to LayerBB as it would allow each community to be different.
I will discuss this with developers but I think this should be implemented into a future version of LayerBB, even potentially into the next release.

Fantastic idea.
I would maybe make this an optional feature of course, like a toggle on/off for tabbed categories.
As for sub forums within sub forums, that is also a great idea.

That's OK, I really like the tabbed categories idea, as that can be extremely useful for large communities.

Still trying to work out exactly how to add your other idea of sub forums in sub forums using the current code base, this one may be slightly more difficult, but the tabbed categories is a for sure thing.

Could I suggest one more thing as well? Instead of showing all the subforums in a list like https://screenshots.firefox.com/g7pEMihMl3537ZvC/forum.layerbb.com could we somehow do it like this https://screenshots.firefox.com/sqFpKhSsEzJ9uQMl/www.se7ensins.com like a dropdown menu kind of style? That would also be useful for big communities!

Drop down menus would be essential I think. So I'll discuss this with the developers.

I've already started work on the tabbed categories, side of things. But I couldn't get it to work how I wanted it to, I'll keep working on it, but this most likely won't be in our next release.

Still all very valid and interesting ideas.

Even if you do not get it to work how you want it to, mind sending it to me so I can work on it? Thanks
