Can't make multiple categories.

Post by thefeedski on October 12th 2011, 7:52 pm

I don't know what i'm doing wrong, but I can't make multiple categories. I am trying to make a category called "Dominion" with the Forums "Recruiting Center", "Looking for Group", and "Casual Play", then I wan't to make another category called "Strategy" with other forums in it, but it's not letting me. Plus for some reason the "Recruiting Center", "Looking for Group", and "Casual Play" forums aren't under a category titled "Dominion" like I want, they are put under the title "Forum". Any help?

For example, http://www.pottersarmy.net/forum this guys forum. Mine is www.dominatedominion.forumotion.com if you need to compare. Need "champion guides" in it's own section.

Can you show me a screenshot of your forum structure, in the admin panel, so, like this:



This will help me to better ascertain what your problem is.

When you are adding a new category, are you also choosing the add a forum option, too?

^

Split categories on index : Medium

That's what that other forum used, and is the most popular.

Sorry, I meant does forumotion have their own ads on my forum I just created? And also, one more question I have, if I were to buy a domain name through forumnotion but decided to switch to to paid hosting at some point with my own forum, could I still use the domain name I bought from forumotion to direct them to the new hosting destination?

Also, is there any way at all I can change the tab that says "Home" to "Forum" and the one that says "Portal" to "Home"?
