i need some Hellp with the Forum.
I want to have a few Maincategories (not clickable) and the Boards under it.

For Example:

Tische (MainCat - Not clickable)
-> A
-> B
-> C

It is exactly the same as here in the Forum, but i can't figure it out.

Help me please :)

Somebody got an Idea?

Make sure you are using the 0.2 release listed in my post

This does it out of the box. In the CMS under each forum page you have there should be a 'Category' tab. In this tab you can select / add / delete categories for your forums.

Hi Will,

Can you please ensure that the Forum release is available for download in the modules area? It looks like it's still showing 0.1.2.

well 0.2 hasn't been released as stable yet. Sean is still fixing bugs :). That blog post contains the RC / test version while I finish off the last little bits

Hello willr,

i have that Module and i can see the Category Tab in the Backend.
For my Use i have a Board called "Kickertische" and Categories named "Lehmacher, Fireball, etc." but none of these are showing up in the Forum.
Only the "Kickertische".

hi all,

well i have a similar issue here - i have (rather i plan to have) multiple forums including subcategories.
First problem i encounter is that all my forums see the same category
second as i was looking at your forum, you are using the categories and adding the forums in a nice order which i should be able to accomplish with numbers but that don't seem to work for me. would like to have it (or similar) as my old page

thanks for the help or more docs

Hi All,

I've got the same problem,
All my categorie's aren't showed in the forum list.

Someone knows how to show this?
