How many category levels will phpbb handle?

Post by LanceHaverkamp »

I'm shopping for a discussion forum. The group needs their discussion topics by location:

country >
state >
city >
topic 1
topic 2
topic 3
etc.

But I found that not all forum software allows for multiple drill-down categories, and several only allow two deep!

phpBB has category type forums, that can contain forums that can function as subcategories.
Forums can contain subforums which in turn can contain sub-subforums

From your post i gather all you need is:

Categories for the countries,
Forums for the States, and
subforums for the Cities
Spelling is freeware, which means you can use it for free.
On the other hand, it is not open source, which means you cannot change it or publish it in a modified form.
