How can I make more than one forum board

  • Is there a way to make more than one forum board on the site? The header format looks like you can but I do not know where I would do it.

  • Hello,


    Are you looking to duplicate the "Forum" tab or how do you want to create another forum?

    Yes I am looking on how to duplicate the forum tab. I want to have different forums for different sections instead of putting them all in one place.

  • Hello,


    You could create categories that are hidden from the forum list, but are added to the menu directly. This way there would be sections of the forum not visible at the first glance, even though they still exist. However, this is merely a different forum, but really just an imperfect hiding mechanism. If you're looking to duplicate exactly what is available through the forum tab, then I'm afraid to tell, but this isn't possible.

  • Hello,


    oh, my bad, this is about the old 4.1 series, which does not support custom dynamic menu items. Anyway, you can edit forums and categories and set them to be hidden, this is a dedicated option for them. Then you would add a link to that specific forum or category to the menu, but you'll need to grab the link before setting it to hidden.
