Re: Problems with “Forum Is Category” in 1.0 Alpha-6
_ck_, I think they mean when making a forum a category (no posts), when starting a new topic it shows up (which i think is fine to index things properly. e.g. you might have to ‘General’ Forums in 2 Categories. Anyway then it takes them to a page stating the topic is closed, since there is no posts allowed there.
With your second question, you could probably edit that out, messing with the theme.
Why don’t you just update to version 1.0.1? Why stay on an unstable version where bugs are expected?
