Creating Categories and Forums - Justin S. - 02-03-2006

How to create a category:

Go to Admin CP -> Forum Management -> Add New Forum

Enter the name for the category (required) and if you want, the description (optional). Then, under "Posting and Thread Listing Options," for the option "Act As Forum?," select, No. Then change any of the other settings that you wish to change, and click Add Forum at the bottom of the page.

How to create a forum:

Go to Admin CP -> Forum Management -> Add New Forum

Enter the name (required) and description (optional) for the forum. Change the display order to a number other than 1 if it isn't the first number in the list (obviously changing it to the number down you want it displayed in the category). Change any other settings you wish to change, and then click Add Forum at the bottom of the page.
