XF 1.4 Categories inside a forum?

    Hi, everytime I make a category inside a forum it turns into a forum itself instead of a category. Let me provide a picture example.

    When I create a category in the forum root, I obtain this:

    But if I make a category child to a forum then, it looks like this:

    I'm looking for it to look like this instead

    How can I achieve this?

    Forum that has done this:

    Similar thread with no answer (Even though it looks like the guy who started it has figured it out, I'd ask him but he's inactive):

    Thank you.

    @andrewgbest, try ticking the "Create Pages for Categories" option in Admin CP --> Home --> Options --> Node & Forum List:
    create-pages-for-categories.png

    That should display a dedicated node list of your child category when clicked from the main index node list.

    That doesn't seem to do anything.

    Apologies got mixed up, this is option you need:

    Untick Show sub-forums popup in Appearance -> Styles -> Default Style -> Style Property Groups:

    That's not what he is asking, he's wanting the subheading inside the forum_view template(which I don't know how to do off the top of my head :D )

    Ah I stand corrected, misinterpreted. I had another look at the test forum @andrewgbest linked to and according to this thread, that is XF 1.x behaviour (displaying more than 1 level of subcategories/subforums within a forum).

    I did some digging around and it seems @clamoune posted a workaround to edit one of the core files to revert this behaviour back so it would display more than 1 level though I don't know if it would work on XF 1.4.x :
