I create one category

And, where i go to create a new forum into the category following happens:

So I can not create the forum in the category

Why it happens this?
How I can fix it?
I'm using phpBB 3.0.12 with some MODs installed (if necessary, I can make the list, although they are only 5-6, and I don't think change anything on any forums or categories)

Thanks.

In forum management make a new forum.

Forum type: Category
Parent forum: No parent

Set permissions for category.

Then make another forum.
Forum type: Forum
Parent forum: the category you just made.

Set permissions for forum

To set permissions, either use the option to copy permissions from an existing category or forum that has the desired permissions, or:
Administration Control Panel (ACP) > Permissions > Group forum permissions
Set the registered users to be able to see and post in it:
Registered users > Standard access

Then you need to set permissions so everyone can see it:
Admin control panel>Permissions>Groups forum permissions.
Set the registered users to be able to see and post in it:
Registered users>Standard access

Never happened to me, however was solved by giving permissions to the category before creating the forums, as you said.
Thank you.
