Requirements:
Valid UBB.Threads install and license.

About:
This quick modification will "highlight" your subforums, just like we have here at UBB.Dev.


New Image (place in your "general" image folders):
https://www.ubbdev.com/forums/images/general/default/subforum.png - Provided by our good friend id242.

The Modification
Add the following to your style (CP -> Display Options -> Styles -> Edit Style, Extra Properties):
Code
.subforum {
background: #E9ECF2;
border: 1px solid #708097;
-moz-border-radius: 4px;
border-radius: 4px;
display: inline;
padding-left: 2px;
padding-right: 2px;
white-space: nowrap;
}
.subforum a {
text-decoration: none;
}


In libs/functions_forums.inc.php:
Find:
Code
				$returndata[$i]['subforum_links']["$sub_id"][0] = sprintf('<a href="%s">%s</a>', make_ubb_url("ubb=postlist&Board=$sub_id&page=1", $title, false), $title);


Replace With::
Code
				$returndata[$i]['subforum_links']["$sub_id"][0] = sprintf('<div class="subforum"><a href="%s">%s</a></div>', make_ubb_url("ubb=postlist&Board=$sub_id&page=1", $title, false), $title);


Find:
Code
				$returndata[$i]['subforums'] .= ($subforum_moo[0] . (($subforum_moo[1] > 0) ? sprintf(' <span class="newtotal">(%s)</span>', $subforum_moo[1]) : '') . ', ');


Replace With::
Code
				$returndata[$i]['subforums'] .= ($subforum_moo[0] . (($subforum_moo[1] > 0) ? sprintf(' <span class="newtotal">(%s)</span>', $subforum_moo[1]) : '') . ' ');



In templates/default/forum.tpl:
Find:
Code
					{if $forum[cats][fora].subforums}{$lang.SUBFORUMS} {$forum[cats][fora].subforums}{/if}


Replace With::
Code
					{if $forum[cats][fora].subforums}<img src="{$config.BASE_URL}/images/{$style_array.general}/subforum.png" alt=""> {$forum[cats][fora].subforums}{/if}

Bill, look under "New Image" and to the left of "Provided by our good friend id242"; it blends in; or the direct URL as Isaac pointed out is https://www.ubbdev.com/forums/images/general/default/subforum.png

Okay, found it... I saw my mouse change shape, but I didn't right click on it.

Is the "arrow" suppose to be a new-style link to images? I haven't seen this before.

Oh, wait!! The arrow IS THE IMAGE.... okay, I get it.

Okay... one more clarification if you don't mind.

I haven't installed, or tested, this yet, but I"m a tad confused as to what you mean by "will "highlight" your subforums".

A while ago, I added code which "color-codes" my forums depending upon which "group" my members belong in. Is this change similar?

I just added some screenshots to the OP

Very nice mod, Gizmo. Following your directions, it was quick and easy to implement.

Isaac's screen captures on the initial post cover it nicely.
