Unable to create a new forum under a category

Post by Devsters »

In the admin cp I have gone to the forums tab to display the manage forums section, I select the category I wish to create a new forum in and then at the bootom I type in the box the name of the new forum and click create new forum.

Once in the setting s of the new forum I am unable to select a category as parent forum (greyed out) so leave it as no parent and use default settings - forum is then created but not in the category I created it from initially, its in a new category of its own just called forum.

Any ideas why I cant create a new forum from within the category?

Running 3.1.5 by the way
