Description of problem

My daughter is having a problem arranging her board as she is used to, from her previous site. Since she is extremely busy with her work (Air Force), she has little time to seek out all the answers, so Mum volunteered. I'm not tech savvy, so please be patient with me. Attached are some screen caps.

What she needs to know with Forumotion, is how to create sub-boards within categories and then as we're used to calling them, child boards under the sub boards; with only the main title showing on the home page like the following.

My daughter did in fact try that late last night while she was on duty (in between patients of course). She sent me some screen caps early this morning. One problem she is having is with the admin panel.

The second image is of the main board as it is now. The one indicated with the red line, she had hoped, or that was her intention, that it didn't show where it is, only within the SG1 board

Hello we have a problem with the Tools on the Admin Control panel.

Our team have been sent a bug report and it will be looked at when they get in the office (Tomorrow) "Wednesday morning"

I would ask you not to make any change until this is fixed as we may need to roll back the systems.

I have marked this topic https://help.forumotion.com/t161267-categories-and-forums-admin-panel#1128303 as Only topic so the problem is not posted more then once.

Anyone who would like to report the same thing can then use that post Wink

Yes the problem has now been fixed we had a problem with the CSS cache  it should now be back to how it was.

As for the red line part well this looks to me she has a
Code:
<br>
code in the forum Description.

Screen shot:
Arranging Categories and Forums Captu528

she will need to click on that forum name and scroll down the page then see if she has the following button pressed.
Arranging Categories and Forums Captu529

if it is white you may see the code if it is a grey looking button then you will need to press this to see the
Code:
<br>
code remove the all the br code and then save this should remove the space.

Please remember you must only have one question for each topic as this helps others to search for the problem them self.

If this is now solved for you please press the marked solved button found at the top of this topic.

Thank you and have a great day.
