For example I have three main forum catagories:

General
Officer
Class Specific

I want to add sub folders to the class specific so that I don't have all the classes posting in the same catagory. For instance I want
 Class Specific (to be the main catagory)   
    Warrior (Sub Catagory, not new thread)
        posts, threads etc.
    Priest (Sub Catagory, not new thread)
        posts, threads etc.

Does anyone know how I accomplish this? Thanks!

Hiya!

That's not something that's supported at the moment... Looks like a good idea though.  Anyone else aching for this feature?  It's actually the first time I've heard of it (unless somebody's submitted it as a feature request, in which case there's a good chance I haven't reviewed it yet).

Oh, yeah, it's one I'd greatly appreciate. I have a few other features that I'm looking for in the literature. If I don't see them, I'll file some FR's on them - stay tuned, Aaron...;)

 What I did was just created the classes and made them stick topics and moved everything that corresponded to that class under there now its cleaned up. The Character classes only have the 9 class types and the specific classes have there own sections.

In light if the folder thing which would be good use stick topics.

I did what I think you are talking about.... Let me know if it works for you.

What I did on mine is this:

Use the Forums editor tool and click on add forum

In the Name box call it whatever you want ie.. Warrior

Then set the security lvl you want

In the Forum Group dropdown list select the catagory you want this to go in ie.. Class Specific

Set the display order ie... 0,1,2 ect

Enter the discription

If you want to require a pw for it make sure you check the require pw box and enter the pw then click Save.

Rinse and repeat for each of the class specific forums you want to add under the class specific catagory. Each of the sub catagories has its own forum functionality then , and you can set moderators for each forum under the class specific catagory.

Not sure whether this was what you were looking for , hope it helps!!

No its not the same. I  know what he is talking about. Probaords has sub boards and that would be one of the AWESOME things besides revamping the calendar that GP could do.

This is exactly the information that I am trolling these forums trying to find out how to do. I guess I can just sit back and wait until GP gets around to implementing it!
