Categories in a forum are used to group similar boards together which are what hold the topics and posts. These are vital to having an organized forum.
Let’s add a new board.
Use this first set of options to restrict board access for non-administrator users. If you don’t want to allow polls, choose the second option. The third option won’t allow users to create new topics, and the last will let users view posts only.
To allow additional members to moderate this board, enter their usernames here. Note that you will not need to add administrators; they can moderate all boards automatically.
8) Deselect Count Posts if you don’t want posts made in this board to count towards users’ totals.
Use the same process to create as many boards as you need.
12) Then click Add Category.
