This is not available in the underlying DB structure. I know it was talked about for V3 but not sure if it got rolled in or not.

However, I think some people have "faked this" by using a standardized category naming convention and modifying the main forum listing template to indent categories. E.g., use the names like 1.0.0 Somecat, 1.1.0 Sub, 1, 1.1.1 Sub Sub 1... Then use Freemarker scripts in the template files to parse out the category prefix and use this to create HTML that indents the display accordingly.

This will display a psuedo-hierarchy at the main level. However, managing and displaying sublevels will still be done like individual categories.
