Explanation of forum types
In phpBB 3.1, there are three forum types. A forum can be a normal forum where people can post in, a category that contains forums, or it can be a simple link.
In a forum people can post their topics.
The forum list displays a forum link like a normal forum. But instead of linking to a forum, you can point it to a URL of your choice. It can display a hit counter, which shows how many times the link was clicked.
If you want to combine multiple forums or links for a specific topic, you can put them inside a category. The forums will appear below the category title, clearly separated from other categories. Users are not able to post inside categories.
