Solved Forum Copying?

Post by sfrost on December 5th 2011, 4:46 pm

Hello,

I'm working on building out my forum and I have a LOTS of categories/forums...thing is most will have the same layout so what I am curious of...is there a way to COPY a layout of a forum?

It's like this...

Category -->
Category -->
Forum -->
Forum -->
Forum

Basically...I need to copy this layout and change the primary/secondary Category names and I would be good...instead of having to enter the SAME info on each and everyone of them. I need these linked to each separate category as well...so each will be it's own forum.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

EDIT: BTW...I only need to copy 2nd and 3rd 'forum' sections...

Hi!

This is not possible I'm afraid, although it is possible to copy forum permissions from one forum to another.

That's what I was afraid of sadly. =/

Just a little extra effort on my part I guess...on another note...I did try to copy the permissions but it doesn't seem to copy correctly?

I had created a forum with specific Pruning...I then copied that permission on another forum in a different category and it didn't take...it saved fine, but after refreshing it didn't change the pruning options to reflect the top forum.

Just a little bit more effort, yes. But that won't be TOO much would it? Razz

Copying forum permissions should always work as long as you do it correctly. Doing so won't copy your pruning options as far as I know.

Ahh! So it doesn't copy the pruning...that's the only options I wanted to copy actually, lol.

A little more effort yes...quite a bit actually as I've got 52 categories setup with multiple forums in between, lmao!

Ooh, that's quite a lot. Good luck with that. Smile

You can always make a suggestion in the suggestions section if you wish. Is this problem solved then?
