Module: Pervasive Forum
Author: Oliver Riesen <oliver@riesen.org>

Shows specified forums in each folder or each subfolder.

In Phorum3 were two corresponding display options for forums called "Show in each folder" and "Show also in each subfolder".

Tested on version 5.2.7 with "Directory Structure" and "Flat Structure".

Example:

Example for a normal structure of folders and forums (without pervasive forums):

Root
|
+-- Announcements
|
+-- Ford
|   |
|   +-- Dealers and garages
|   |
|   +-- Focus
|   |   |
|   |   +-- Technics
|   |   |
|   |   +-- Maintenance and repair
|   |
|   +-- Fusion
|   |   |
|   |   +-- Technics
|   |   |
|   |   +-- Maintenance and repair
|
+-- Chevrolet
    |
    +-- Dealers and garages
    |
    +-- Captiva
    |   |
    |   +-- Technics
    |   |
    |   +-- Maintenance and repair
    |
    +-- Impala
        |
        +-- Technics
        |
        +-- Maintenance and repair

After marking forum "Announcements" as "Show in each folder" and both forums "Dealers and garages" as "Show in each subfolder" you'll get:

A: No, there are treated in same manner.
