Do actual SUBFORUMS, as in secondary forums exit?

Post by SHIVA_ » Thu Aug 22, 2013 10:41 pm

Hi, check out this below image please. I am trying to condense my way too long FORUM INDEX.

On pbpBB 3.0 is it possible to create actual subforums. I don't mean forum within categories as below, but forum within forums.

Meaning the Category Global Super Sunday below, which now has 7 Forums, to show only links to the 7 forums, instead of listing all of them separately as to take up too much room in FORUM INDEX.

Thank you!

Yes and no. You can't create just subforums because, by definition, they are children of a forum. You create a subforum by selecting a forum as the parent of the sub forum, in the same way as you place forums within a category by selecting the category as the parent of the forum.

Thanks it worked. Now why does it only show 3 of the 6 subforums as links on INDEX? is it because of space?

That's not it. The 6 show as subforums once I click on the parent forum. But only 3 show as subforums in INDEX.

Manage forums
Click the green icon on those subforums that are missing and make sure you've selected YES for both options regarding displaying subforums in their parent legend.
