Generated by SRT Generator ($Rev: 3036 $)

I'm sorry this is probably a really silly question.

I'm running my forum on PHPBB 3.0.4
At the moment when you see the Board index it says Forum at the top in the Dark blue border and i want to layout the forum better so you can see the forum catagories on the index page in their own sections

On this forum for example you have seperate sections and you have General, PHPBB3.0.x or PHPBB2.0.x
this is what i'd like to acheive where as i have just one main box that says Forum at the top.

I'm sorry as this is going to be something really simple but i have a not as technical as i'd like it to be brain. I've learnt how to add different smilies but this eludes me :lol:

When you create new forum, be sure to select "Category" as the forum type, and "No Parent" as the forum parent. This will make a whole new section on the index, just like on these forums. You can then place individual forums (forum type forum) in these categories as the parent. See the image below for an example.
