  • [Forum] Copy forums structure to a new forum


    I have a need to repeat sub-forum structures across several forums. For example, I might have a parent forum with several child forums under it and each of these child forums might have lower child forums. I want to take that whole structure and copy it to another parent forum. To set up each child/grandchild structure many times would take a very long time.

    I have found the option to add a new forum basing it off another existing forum, but this just seems to copy the attributes of that parent, and isn't concerned with sub-structure at all.

    Is there a way to do this? Thanks in advance

    However, I do these things in this way:
    Create a forum, say: Countries.
    Create a prefix set and create different prefixes (like US, UK etc) prefixes in there. Assign them to that forum and make prefixes mandatory.
    Then in the forum description, I put html links pointing to those prefixes.

    Now, you can create another forum, assign prefix sets and copy paste the same html (with id changed) in description.

    It does not exactly functions like sub-forum, but works fine for me.

    Example: (still a beta forum though).
