Sry updating to 1.2.1 atm. -> back online

The nodetree should/is atm something like this

  • Main (category)
    • news (forum)
    • feedback (forum)
  • Server (Category)
    • alpha (category)
      • main (category)
        • announcements (forum)
        • feedback (forum)
        • ...
      • user (category)
        • forum1
        • forum2
        • forum3
        • ...
      • ...
    • beta (category)
      • same like alpha
    • ...
  • more (category)
    • forum1
    • forum2
    • ...

Before the expand there was only one server, so we didnt need the "server" category.
Now I added this Category and if u open "alpha", only the categorys are shown. -> u have to click twice to see the forums...

the first category would have to act like the root node

Atm, if u see a category within a category it´s shown as a forum (from the style)

This is intentional. You can change this in the templates if you prefer (it's a level 2 category).
if I change it, it destroys everything. why isnt there a simple setting for this ?

If I open a category it should get tier 1 and display its content like the first category.
Even phpbb supports this.


Is there a way to make the tier 2 category nodes tier 1 if u open the category above them ? As if u open a tier 1 category there is only the tier 2 category and it could act like a tier 1. All would be fixed with this.
