On my website, I have all of my subforums categorized into main forums. Users only post within the subforums because the main forum is for organizational purposes only. The subforums show their post count, but on the main page, all of the main forums show a post count of 0, which is misleading because there are actually posts within the subforums that are inside the main forums. I'd like a way for the posts inside the subforums to be totaled and displayed on the main forum post count so that people who visit my website don't think that nobody has posted. Alternatively, it would be great if there was some way to hide the post count altogether.
I've also been having a separate problem with the post count. Most of the post counts on my main forums say 0, but one of them says -1. Not sure how that's possible.
