===Create New Category===
 
On this page you can create a new [[category]] on your forum. Just like when you modify an existing [[Category]] you need to supply a name for the category, choose a placement for the whole [[Category]] using the order listbox and choose if it can 'collapse". "Collapsing" means that a [[Category]] can be suppressed to only show the title of itself, hiding any of its boards underneath. Clicking on the [[Category]] title of a currently collapsed [[Category]] usually opens the display of boards again underneath that category.
 
 
 
 
 
===Settings===
 
 
 
The Settings page of the Boards section of the Administration Panel allows you to set some basic settings involving the boards. The following settings are present on this page:
 
 
 
 
 
{{parmdesc
 
|Membergroups allowed to manage boards and categories |d1=Check the boxes for whatever groups you would like to have the ability to manage the boards and categories. Meaning they can edit, create and delete boards and categories.
 
|Count child's posts in parent's totals|d2=Checking this option will mean that posts and topics in a board's Child Board will count toward its totals on the Board index.
 
|Enable recycling of deleted topics|d3=Checking this will make it so your forum "recycles" deleted topics and posts. This means while the necessarily stats will be updated when the post is deleted, as well as the post no longer being visible where it was before, posts that are deleted can be viewed for reference in the board you specify on the option directly below this one.
 
|Board for recycled topics|d4=Select a Board you wish to store deleted posts in. By choosing the blank option, posts will not be recycled.
 
}}
 
 
 
{{Version specific|version=2|content={{parmdesc|1=Allow boards to be ignored|d1=Checking this option will allow users to select boards they wish to ignore. For information on what exactly "ignoring" a board does, see the document, Ignoring Boards.}}
