There is a structure like that: Category==> Forum ==>(forum) Subforum
Click "Forums" tab. Then Click your created "category". At the bottom of Page there is field "create New forum"....
İf you want create a Subforum Click to your created Forum and then at the bottom of Page there is a field again "create New forum"

keep in mind that first you have to create a forum under the category before you can have a subforum

first you create a forum of the type category.

then you go back and create a forum with that category as the parent.
then you can go back and create a new forum with that forum as the parent and it will be a subforum of that forum, not of the category.

Strangely enough there exists a Support section with documentation, and by some good fortune that documentation contains a chapter entirely devoted to forums: ... de/forums/
Granted, it's concise but while setting up a board it should be a piece of cake to create a category with a forum and a subforum.
A bug is a feature that hasn't made it to the manual (yet)
