In progress Making forums and categories

Post by sugarcandy on April 24th 2012, 10:40 am

Hi everyone.

Forgive me for being a bit dense. I've never used forumotion before so I'm a bit stuck even though I'm reading the tutorials. Embarassed

I've created two categories, (introductions and daily life.) Neither of them are showing on the forum. However the forums I've made are showing. It's obviously something glaringly simply that I'm not doing, but what? Chit Chat is supposed to be in the category *daily life* but as you can see, it's not there, just the forum. I'm a bit baffled at the moment. Any help for a dummy appreciated.

The category will show as in the:
Admin Panel > General > Categories & Forums

Also, try these settings and see if the categories will show up:
Admin Panel > Display > Structure & Hierarchy > Split categories on index : Set it to Medium > Save

Also following up on what Jophy said.

Once you have made the category you will also have to attach a forum to the specific category you would like.

The forum will appear as in the
Admin Panel > General > Categories & Forums

When attaching the forum to the Category fill this out how you would like it to be.

Choose the kind of forum you want : Forum
Forum Name : Name of the forum
Attached to : The category of your choice
Position this forum after : The category of your choice or the forum of your choice
Copy forum permissions : Presets
Forum Status : Unlocked
Sort Topics By : Topic's post's date (Most recent in first)
Sort the posts of a topic by : Post's Date (Most oldest in first)

Once edited things to your choice click Save.

Once you are done it should look like this in Admin Panel > General > Categories & Forums
