XF 1.5 How to change a Forum to Category

Hi,

I have this structure in my forum:
Category1
-Forum1
--Sub-Forum1
--Sub-Forum2​
-Forum2
--Sub-Forum1
--Sub-Forum2​
...

Now, I want to change Forum1 and Forum2 to Category and Sub-Forums to Forums. So, the result will be:
Category1
-Category1
--Forum1
--Forum2​
-Category2
--Forum1
--Forum2​
...

How can I do that? Is there any direct way to do it? Or I should create Categories and move sub-forums to it and then remove the Forums? Any opinion will be appreciated.

Regards,
Hamed

I think you would have to create the new categories then make those the direct parent of what are currently the sub forums

If there are no posts in what are currently forum 1 & 2 then just delete them, otherwise move any posts first

EDIT

I just realised I think that is what you suggested as your second option.

It is very straightforward
