Creation of a sub-category under General Discussion

(Steven Greco) #1


Is there a way to create sub-categories under General Discussion? I would like to put the Introduce yourself category under this one. But General Discussion does not come up on the list when selecting the parent category.

Yes, unless you renamed “uncategorized” to “General Discussion”. Uncategorized is a special case.

Any “normal” category can be a parent category.

I think that is what I did. I must of renamed Uncategorized as General Discussions. So, I changed General Discussions back to Uncategorized. I then created a General Discussion and moved all topics from there. Finally, I did find the setting in ADMIN to disable Uncategorized to show up.

I also set the setting to that all topics need a category.
