It isn't possible to post threads in categories.

You must have created that node as a forum.

Your options are to create a new category and move all of the forums to it (and delete the existing parent forum), or revoke permission for the registered user group to post threads in the parent forum and allow it for each child forum.

first of all thanks for the fast reply Brogan

hmm, it seems like i did how can i overlook that... so now i just disable the post threads on the created forum but allowed on the sub-forums that would work right?

I think it's possible as I did it for my forum :)
Just go to the category you want to disable making new threads then u will see a tab there called forum options, click on that and uncheck the first option and click save forum button. It's done , users will not be able to create threads there but they can make threads inside the forums sections. Hope this is what you wanted?

You can even set permission for category not to post anyone, then inside the sub forum set again permission to allow posting. It also works :)

so i disabled posting in the created forum
If you disabled it using the forum option, posting won't be possible, regardless of permissions.

Your options are to create a new category and move all of the forums to it (and delete the existing parent forum), or revoke permission for the registered user group to post threads in the parent forum and allow it for each child forum.
