First off let me say i love the cms. I just installed it about an hour ago and being from the PHP-Nuke world this is heaven. I just have a couple of module questions.

The forums module installed and is running fine but how do i create extra categories/forums ?

The Gallery module, i installed it and the swfupload module and all seemed to go well but no link was made for the gallery like it was for the forum or the blog. I installed the gallery in the image_gallery folder <--- was that correct ? If i do need to create a link for it in the main menu what would the path be to the gallery.

No, it doesn't create the page for you. I don't know why the blog does that...

You can create the page by clicking "Create" -> "ImageGalleryPage"

Note, you'll need the DataObjectManager module, too.. and you're using ImageGallery, not Gallery, right?

You create Forums just like you create pages in the CMS. So in the CMS on the left hand sitetree select the top most 'Forums' page (which would have been created) then 'Create' and select 'Forum' to create a new forum.
