    How Do I Reorder The Forums I Created

    Thanks

    In the forum manager there is a list of all the forums, each forum has a order column with an input field where you can enter a number.

    They expect it to count from low to high (low will show first) for the parents (like a category),
    then any child below the parent forum (like a forum and sub forums) are counted from low to high again.

    So, imagine you have a staff category, a news category, a chit chat category.

    this would be:

    - staff
    - news
    - chit chat

    Now, the order will be 1 2 3

    - staff (1)
    - news (2)
    - chit chat (3)

    You can have a admin and mods forum below this parent category for staff, so you will get:

    - staff
    |- admins
    `- mods

    staff was 1, but since admins is below staff, and the first one, you set this to 1 too. so we get:

    - staff (1)
    |- admins (1)
    `- mods (2)

    Now, here's an example of the categories and their forums, ordered.

    - staff (1)
    |- admins (1)
    `- mods (2)
    - news (2)
    |- announcements (1)
    `- site feedback (2)
    - chit chat (3)
    |- daily news (1)
    |- jokes (2)
    `- buy&sell (3)


    I hope this makes more sense now.

        As a PS, I usually number forums like 10, 20, 30, etc to make adding new forums easier(15, then 13, 17)

          Yeah, whatever works
          You can do 10 for the first one and 99999 for the last one
          and have 501 show in the middle..

          It will always go from lower to a higher number.
