On the Landing Page, we usually have the categories and the associated forums below every category.
I want to make following design change in the existing standard forum. Please help which of the below is feasible

1) Removing Categories and Putting all the Forums on the left side of the Page, Click on the Forum will load the topics related to that forum on the right side of the same page.
2) Put all the categories on the left side of the page and click on the category will load the Forums related to that category on the right side of the same page.
3) Using accordians on Categories, such that only categories will be shown on the landing page, clicking on which expand each category and display associated forums.

I am not sure if we can use jquey along with freemarkers in the htm pages.
Any help is highly appreciated. Thanks..!!

Yes. You can use jQuery. We are doing so on our fork of JForum on this site. jQuery works with HTML which is what Freemarker generates.

Any of the approaches you mention are feasible.

Thanks Jeanne..!!
I would be planning to use jquery for the further design changes and i can see at some the of places people has used accordians as well.
I have one more query regarding the time zone. I can see inside SystemGlobal.properties we have the time-zone flexibility for the RSS feed. I am just wonering if we can do the same for replies as well.
As of now it shows EEE time zone whenever you reply on the topic, Can it be changed to IST from client side ?
and by default we have a user called "admin" having the password "admin" who has all the access to the forum, but i don't see any mechanism to change the password

I replied to your timezone question in your other thread. For changing the password, you can get to the id in member listing (jforum/user/list). Click the id and then edit profile. That's where it prompts you to change the password
