  • Sub-Forums are not listed on Parent Forum

    I have searched the help forums here and have not found an answer to this. The problem I have encountered is that my sub-forums are not showing on the parent forum page. I have attempted to edit the page/module and can not find where to fix this. You can see an example of this issue at Note that on this page it is showing all of the forums on the site instead of the sub-forums. Also you can see another example of a similar issue at
    I hope my question/issue makes sense. Navigating the site is a royal pain since the sub-forums are not listing. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you,

    You need to create a categories and move the relevant forums under them.

      I thought I had done all of that. When at the home page you can see all of the Forums and Sub-Forums listed, however when you visit one of the parent forums it only lists topics and not the sub-forums.

        There's categories showing now yes...they weren't there when I looked earlier.

        Can you give me an example of one forum, and which subforums it should have?

          At Home the following Parent Forums are listed with their Sub-Forums:
          -General Cruise Talk
          --First Time Cruisers
          --Ask A Cruise Question
          --Ports of Call
          And more
          -Roll Calls
          --Cruise Lines "A-L" Roll Calls
          --Cruise Lines "M-Z" Roll Calls
          -Cruise Lines & Ships
          --Cruise Lines "A-L"
          --Cruise Lines "M-Z"

          Example: When visiting General Cruise Talk it should list all of the sub-forums of "Cruise Talk" that were shown on the Home page, but it is listing topics instead.
          Example: When visiting Roll Calls it should list the sub-forums of "Roll Calls", but it is showing the same stuff that is on the home page.
          Example: When visiting Cruise Lines & Ships it should list the sub-forums of "Cruise Lines & Ships", instead it shows NO TOPICS.

          I'm not sure how the heck I have each page acting totally different, but it is frustrating not knowing how to fix it. Thanks for your help!

            Looks like a known bug.

            Fixed in Beta 27.

              So you are saying there is no way to restore the page template default modules or configure a new module that will show the sub-forums?

                Not until beta 27 is released, no, sorry.

                This is the nature of beta software....bugs can appear.
