moving forums between categories - possible?

Post by sunshack »

Hi another quick one - is it possible to move a forum from one category to another, or can they only be re-arranged within a category?

Yes this can be done

Go to your admin control panel, forum admin, management and move your forum

When you have finished moving your forum scroll down and click on submit
Do not PM me unless I ask you to

im not sure if teh above would've helped as i didnt actually understand it. To move a forum between catergories:
  • Go to admin panel
  • Go to forum administration > management(on the panel on the left)
  • Edit your forum y clicking the "edit" link next to the forum you wish to move
  • Change the "Category" combo box to the category you wish.
  • Now re-order it to where you want

Ah I didn't think of trying it that way. I was using the 'move up' and 'move down' links from the forum administration page, and it wouldn't move a forum between categories that way, but would happily shift it up and down within a category as many times as I wanted.

I'll give the other method a go and see what happens.
