Creating category?

Post by Linda Carter » Thu Aug 05, 2010 10:50 pm

I tried to create a new category in the last phpBB 3 and wasn't able to. I just edited the already created by the system and inserted new forums but when I created a new forum and then edited to "Category" it wasn't displayed in my board. The same for the new forum/section I created for this new category. Is there something else I should have done it?

BTW I am using subSilver2 template.

Empty Categories are not displayed until they contain some forums.
You must give these Categories some permissions before you can select them as a "Parent" for another forum.

Sorry to butt in, but I had this before and it had me confused too! You need to set permissions for your category before it will be recognised (and displayed in the "parent" dropdown menu)

Hope this helps!

Edit: didn't read the permissions part in the above poster's post. My bad. You can delete this :(

Thank you all, it was the permissions that were preventing the category to appear on the main page.
