Solved Forums and categories appearance problem

Post by jkh on November 27th 2016, 7:32 pm

When I first made my forum 7 years ago I made the mistake of creating one category and then attaching all the new forums to it instead of having them grouped in separate sections.

As the site has developed the list of forums is getting longer and longer and it would be nice to be able organise the site better.

I can't now create categories, as in the screenshot below, and wonder if it's too late to reconfigure the site to tidy it up?


This is my forum so you can see what I mean: Complete Mystery of Madeleine McCann





I wouldn't want it to look untidy like this:

If you want your forum to look like the support forum, you need to pick the middle one in the bottom row.

Oh, so I can still change it?

If I don't like it can I change it back again?

Yes, you can change the structure of the forums and categories.

You can also create more categories.

Modify the forums and attach them to which categories you want.
