Hello,

Do you mean the 'multi forums in one'? Can you be more specific?

Meanwhile, can you please change your title into a more specific one, the one that relates your problem so it'll help those users who are using the search functions. Thanks! Smile

Well as you can see by my Forum I have ten different Categories , I would like to divide them and place " Match Freds , Match reports and Transfer News " in one category under " Football " " Fantasy Cockney Boys League and Predictor " under " Games " etc etc . I have followed the " Multi Forums in one " and I can get that to work , so that is not a problem , I hope this explains a bit better .

No it is not the multi forums in one , as I said I have no problem with that , I am having problems with a new categorie and placing the forums in the new categorie as I mentioned above . I want it to look like the FoF,s where you have " Support Forum " and in this you have " Connection Problems " " Script Problems " etc etc . I dont want to play around too much and lose all our posts and threads . I hope this explains things better . Cheers

Yeah you create a new category then add forums to that category ?

I guess that's what you asking ??

Thanks Kirk that explains things very well . As you can probably see I already have the Forum built and I want to divide it up into three or four categories and place the forums I have already into these categories without losing anything . Am I missing something here Confused

Hello,

Follow the topic that Kirk posted and you'll be fine. You can attach the forums to the categories. Once you do, do this last step.
