Hello,

To change a category's name, you need to go to:

1. Administration Panel (advanced mode)
2. General Tab
3. Categories and forums (on the left, under Forum)
4. Click the edit button ( Edit ) on a category
5. Rename it there

Exactly the same. Just click on next to the forum/sub-forum you want to re-name.

That's the category name. You should do the same thing as posted Base before. Next to the category named "Forum" you should have a edit button (Edit), - click on it and rename your category name, then click Save button.
