    I have just realised that I have a forum, with sub-forums, that should instead be a category.
    There are no posts in the forum itself but there are posts in the sub-forums.

    Is there an easy way to change the forum into a category?

    Not an already created forum there isn't. But it is not that hard to create a new Category (same name as the forum), and then delete the old forum. A pop-up will ask you what to do with the child forums, just select Attach child nodes to another parent, select the new category from the drop-down menu, and then press the delete button.

    Cheers Lawrence, wasn't sure if I could create a category with the same name as a forum.

    Categories are based on IDs, name is irrelevant (which is why IDs are important), unless you specify the same custom URL.
