02.What is a forum? ( I meant "Sub-Forum")

Spoiler:

Hello,

This topic explains the basic differences between a forum and a category: http://help.forumotion.com/t8322-differences-between-forum-and-category

Also:

- Category : A group of forums (section). They can't contain topics directly.

- Forum : Two definitions
1) Website or dynamic website part which allows written expression of its members. Also called "board", "message board" or "bulletin board"
2) A group which contains topics (or threads), also called "section"

Thank you for explaining to me!!

So a category contains forums and a forum contains topics!

Am I correct?
