New forum section not working

Post by pandemonium »

Hello guys,

I try to add a new forum but it seems not working...
When I click "Create new forum" I am redirected to this page:
But no success message and no forum created...

Any ideas please?

In forum management make a new forum.

Type: category
No parent.

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

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

If that doesn't help, :
