Hiya, Thanks

I've looked at that and I have created categories and forums within that.

When i try now to add extra catergories and follow the same procedure, its not working? Which is what I dont understand.
If it worked the first time, why not now?

Thanks

What do you mean several times? If you attach the forum properly to the categories, it should appear fine.
