Hi,

I just installed XOOPS on one of my websites and everything works great.

I also installed a forum module, the default one.

I was wondering where can I set it so all the posts are shown FLAT and not threaded by default.

I looked everywhere and didn't see it.

Thanks

Greetings,

To set this, go into:

Admin|Preferences|General Settings

and find the option: Default Comment Display Mode

(which is the 5th row from the bottom)

and set it to Flat


This setting is used by most modules such as the forum modules to do what you need.


Hope that helps!

I did that actually before I asked here but it still displays it in threaded mode by default.

It still doesn't work.

Yes, like irmtfan suggested, you should read that FAQ to fix the problem you are having.

The reason it doesnt seem to work is if users are already signed up (including you or admin), then their display mode is already set in the user profile, with whatever WAS the default comment mode.

So you need to update all users who you want set to flat by setting their umode to 'flat' in the xoops_user table of the database.

Hope it helps.
