I made up these when I first opened my group now can't remember how to do them

I would like to add a couple together (not sure if they are called Category or Forum) as in screen shot below





here is the first one, but how do I get the next one right below as in screen shot above
example

General Board

The Dailies (just like that but not the same categories)


thank you

thanks but am I correct in understanding that I should be making a Forum then?

just tried a forum again and its going inside the psp challenges and not below it. I want it as a category on its own if that is what you call it...grrrr I get so frustrated when it comes to this stuff...sorry :o(
when I do make a forum it does not show the PSP Challenges I want it to go under. it only shows the topics as in the screen shot above. does not show anything else



in the screen shot below...what is that called? a category or a forum?

Hi,
Make sure the forum location is placed after Psp Challenges, not attached to Psp challenges... if it is attached to PSP Challenges then the new forum with be a sub category.
Make sure its set to after Psp Challenges... Not attached to it.

ok got it on its own now, but that is not what I was asking...LOL

I want it to be like the General Area is

General Board
The Dailies
Exclusive Previews

and so on ... all in one Forum as seen in below screen shot

I do not want the PSP Challenges and Scripting to be seperate. is there a way I can fix this up to have them together?
sorry for being a PITA
thank you

Maybe I misunderstood what you meant... Do you mean you want Create a forum inside a category or a forum underneath a forum?

Ok... To put a forum inside forum go to General---->Forums and Categorys in the acp... next click the green plus sign... then Name the forum... then You'll see a dropdown box Click the forum you want the forum to be in (In your case your attaching Script to PSP Challenges)... fill out the rest of the form and click save. This should do the trick.

omg...its not working for me at all
when I click on the part where you say

Position this forum after :Psp Challenges.


It does not show me PSP Challenges
It is only showing me Scripting Questions and Answers in the drop down box
why is it only showing me that?
thanks


I would like it so that the Scripting is in the same area (right below) as the PSP challenges not inside of the psp challenges
