Solved forum & category ? plz

Post by LilaP on April 21st 2012, 4:47 am

How do I get a new forum in between the two where the hand is pointing in screen shot?
I did this before but never can remember on how to do it
I want it just below Iris' Always List (in same area)
I don't know how to explain it any better than this...LOL
thank you

Hello,

Go to your categories & forums area:
Then click the 'add' button > make it attached to the 'category's' name & change 'Position this forum after:' to where you like the forum to be displayed after the forum > Save

Make sure its attached to the general area(click modify) and position after your 'Iris' forum. > Save

You can see those options once you click the modify button of the forum on the admin panel.

Hello,

The forums would probably be under the 'general area' since its a forum under a category you're creating.

Here's a guideline on how to create categories & forums:

Hello,

You have it attached to a forum that's why it's being shown as a sub forum, to make it look like a forum on the index, make sure it's attached to the category name(general area) > Save

It appears that the 'Iris' forum has its own category,so just modify the forum and make sure that it's attached to the category "Iris' Always List" >>Save

No worries, if you have any more questions, feel free to ask Wink

No, that's not the part to be modified, it should be the:
Attached to: > Set it to Helen's Always List > Save
