Forum Question - Categories within Categories?

    Hello everyone,

    We are designing our forum now that chat seems to be running smoothly and I have a question and am hoping I am just missing something and this will be an easy one to resolve.

    When I am creating our Forum Categories, it looks like I can only go one level deep in that I create a category, and then I can have multiple forums underneath each category.

    We have several Broad Categories that we want to create Sub Categories under before we add Forums. Is this possible (I hope I hope I hope?)

    Example

    A. Category = Legacy Toolbox

    1. Sub Category = Series and Workshops

    a. Sub Category = Book Study 1

    i. Forum

    ii. Forum

    iii. Forum

    b. Sub Category = Book Study 2

    i. Forum

    ii. Forum

    iii. Forum

    2. Sub Category = Recommended Resources

    a. Sub Category = Books

    i. Forum

    ii. Forum

    b. Sub Category = Blogs

    i. Forum

    ii. Forum

    I've investigated some more, and it looks like I will need to purchase a plugin, so off I go!

    Yeah it would be nice to sort like you mention. Improvements are coming in SE Unite but for SEPHP you would need a plugin. I use Vanilla forums for my forum site. Perhaps someone would integrate that. They have a great SSO option.
