Pro Admin Creating subforums below a forum?

Post by Rondellivey03 on August 11th 2017, 3:14 pm

I'm trying to get the forums to show up like this

but instead it just does something like this


What I'm saying is I want to make forums listed underneath the main forum as showed in first image, but all it's doing is showing like in the second image..
you can see the forums if you need to http://avalancheofficial.forumotion.com/

Also using ModernBB if that helps with anything.

-EDIT-

Hmm... Think I wonder if it has something to do with the new version, ModernBB.

Do you have a testing account I can use? If so, send it via PM.

Thank you.

I guess it doesn't exist on the newest version, which is very inconvenient. Perhaps we should wait until an admin see this so they can assist you further. Sorry I can't be much help.

Hello,

Since this is a suspected bug, we want to keep this open until our pro admin can have a look into this on Monday. After that, we will close this for you.

I've found a temporary solution to the issue, for now I'll just go in the permissions tab of the forum, and set the "View the forum and its messages" option to Administrators only, then after doing that I'd go to the Forum Description part and do something like this.


Introductions

Welcome to the forums! Introduce yourself to the community!
Sub-forums: Leaving


Announcements

Get information & announcements by the Forum Management here.
Sub-forums:Updates, Rules

and on the blue link looking text is where I would link the hidden forum for the users to be able to access... so for temporarily this could help until the issue is fixed with the ModernBB..
