    Hey

    I have installed bbpress on my website and it’s pretty easy to use it but I just have a question about adding sub categories.

    I have create a category for example How to and a forum as a parent in this category for example phones but i just want the users now to see all the sub categories from the forum home page but when they click on How to they will see all the sub categories so can that be done?

    BTW, idk if this is repeated or not but I searched and found some old topics like from 3 years but nothing new

    Thanks!

    I also need something like this for my site, as I will have many sub categories.

    For Example, my site will contain something like:

    Category 1
    Sub-Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub Forum 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub Forum 2

    etc.

    As you can see, this would be a mess being I will have many main categories. Could you imagine trying to find something specific scrolling through thousands of:

    Category 1
    Sub-Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub Forum 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub Forum 2
    Category 1
    Sub-Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub Forum 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub Forum 2
    Category 1
    Sub-Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub Forum 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub Forum 2
    Category 1
    Sub-Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub Forum 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub Forum 2
    Category 1
    Sub-Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub Forum 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub Forum 2
    Category 1
    Sub-Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub Category 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub Forum 1
    Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub-Sub Forum 2

    I need the hierarchies to be collapsable so my users can select which main category they would like to view, which sub category, etc, without having to view every single last one of them. (Kinda of would have expected that to be a built in feature honestly but, mayb the developers don’t have the same sub-category demands I have?) *shrug*

    Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks!

    You can assign the forum as sub-forums from each other, creating the wanted hierarchy.
