This modification allows you to display different categories on different 'subforums'. When using the term 'subforum', I am referring to a pseudo-forum located on a different directory, subdomain, or domain than the 'primary forum'. The primary forum is any forum that has this modification installed.

For the most part, usage of this customization is relatively simple in nature. After installing the mod, you are able to change the 'forum id' (a numerical value used to identify each forum) of main forum through Server Settings.

To work with subforums, simply go to the Modifications section under the Configuration category in your administration panel. There are two new pages here: 'Subforum Settings' and 'Create New Subforum'. A subforum is able to store these specific settings: board title, board url, and forum id. You can only create a new subforum through the primary forum, and you can only modify subforum settings inside a subforum.

Creating a subforum is extremely easy. All you must do is fill out the information inisde the Create New Subforum page and submit the form. It will generate the code for your subforum's index.php. You must then copy and paste that code into the file it specifies, and you are done. Going to that address will display your subforum.

In order to split categories, each category is specifically set to display for one id. In future versions of this customization, there may be support for multiple ids that the categories can be displayed on, but for now, it's limited to one. You are able to specify which forum the category will be displayed on through the category edit page. You specify the forum using its id.

All recent posts, xml-based feeds, and the like work individually for each of the forums that are connected. There are no known bugs. At the present time, the package is working flawlessly.
