XF 1.2 Is there a more efficient way in node management than creating/updating one at a time?

    Sorry for the noob question, but my current method of creating one at a time doesn't seem efficient :)

    Generally speaking, no. Each node / forum must be created at once. However in regards to permissions, child node / forums will take on the permissions of a parent node / forum. So if you have 1 parent and a bunch of children under it, you only really need to update the parent.

    That's really unfortunate, It's been 8 years since i've messed with forum software, but I remember in vB this was a much easier process. If I have over 100 nodes i need to add can they be added in the db itself?

    No, you can't manipulate the DB directly due to the nested set data, which is calculated as the node is created/edited.
