This is where you add, delete, and change boards and categories, move them around, and add board moderators.
There are three tabs to this section of forum administration.
===Modify Boards===
This tab is for modifying boards and categories. All Categories and Boards are listed. Select one of the '''Add''' buttons to add a board in that category, or select the '''permissions''', '''move''', or '''modify''' links next to a board's name to change the board's permissions, position, or basic settings.  Select a category name to begin modifying the category.
===Create New Category===
{{ {{Localized|As an administrator}}}}
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.
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:
|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. Choose a board to act as the recycle bin. If this field is left blank, 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.}}
