Users can post topics to forums. Forums can appear below other forums in a hierarchy, or can appear in containers.

  1. Click administer » forums.
  2. Click the add forum tab.
  3. Type in a forum name.
  4. Type in a forum description. This will show up below the forum name when users visit the forum section.
  5. Select a parent.
    • You can choose either a forum or a container to be a 'parent' for a forum. If there are no containers or existing forums to choose from, you will only see <root> as the option, meaning it will be at the top of the forum hierarchy.
  6. Select a weight. Higher numbers means the container will sink down in the list, lower numbers mean the container will rise up.
  7. Click the "Submit" button.

NOTE: Make sure you set the proper permissions at admin > user > permissions to allow users access to read and post to the forum.
