is it possible to have sub-forums and sub-sub forums?
« on: January 06, 2012, 02:23:27 PM »
Im asking because someone who is thinking of using SMF needs to know

currently it works:

CATEGORY
- FORUM
- FORUM
- FORUM

CATEGORY
-FORUM


But is it possible to have it like:

CATEGORY
- FORUM
 -- SUB FORUM
 -- SUB FORUM
- FORUM
 -- SUB FORUM
 --- SUB SUB FORUM


etc etc

thanks

we have child or as some call it sub boards, and you can have a child board of a child. but keep in mind if you do this the grandchild board will not be counted in the parents totals.

when you create the board you have a choice of where it will go including child, also when you edit an existing board.

it is not theme specific
