Re: Hierachical forums do not seem to work.

After you changed the hierarchy in the admin section, did you click the “Save Forum Order” button?

I don’t believe this is a plugin issue. It’s possible it’s a theme issue. You may have to change some of the markup and CSS of your theme to get it to work correctly. Check out (can probably just copy and paste) the markup in /bb-templates/kakumei/front-page.php:

<?php if ( bb_forums() ) : ?>
<h2><?php _e('Forums'); ?></h2>
<table id="forumlist">

<th><?php _e('Main Theme'); ?></th>
<th><?php _e('Topics'); ?></th>
<th><?php _e('Posts'); ?></th>
<?php while ( bb_forum() ) : ?>
<tr<?php bb_forum_class(); ?>>
<td><?php bb_forum_pad( '<div class="nest">' ); ?><a href="<?php forum_link(); ?>"><?php forum_name(); ?></a><small><?php forum_description(); ?></small><?php bb_forum_pad( '</div>' ); ?></td>
<td class="num"><?php forum_topics(); ?></td>
<td class="num"><?php forum_posts(); ?></td>
<?php endwhile; ?>
<?php endif; // bb_forums() ?>

You’ll then need some CSS too:

#forumlist tr td div.nest {
padding-left: 2.5ex;

Also, the URLs will not look like; the URLs do not currently reflect the hierarchy.
