I am trying to make a forum in which i need to use a long list of categories. Now this will not be easy for people to use. Is there a way in wich i can make like a categorie, and then a subcategorie and under that a forum?

does anybody have an other idea on how to do it?

thanks!

JForum does not support nested categories and forums. One approach I can suggest you is to try to make some modifications to the html, in order to make it more "user friendly" when having a big ammount of data - for example, show the categorie table contracted and when the user clicks, it expands, showing its forums..

I'm in the same boat. A nested category wouldn't make much sense, but nested forums would be very helpful for logical groupings. Perhaps something for the TODO list?

You can register the feature request at

Just do a search before adding a new entry.. I'm not sure, but maybe there is already an entry about nested forums.
