Please Advise. How do I arrange forums?


Active member
I am wondering if there is a way to arrange the forums order. I created them but now would like to slide a few in between. I am sure somebody knows. :)

The properties of each node has a display order. Just adjust that.

So if you have a category called CATEGORY 1 and a forum called FORUM A and FORUM C and you now want to add a FORUM B between them, you would change the order of FORUM A to 1, the order of FORUM C to 3 and the order of FORUM B to 2.

A good convention is to use large spaces between numbers.

So FORUM A could be 100, FORUM B could be 200, and FORUM C could be 300. Then, in theory, you could insert 100 more forums in between FORUM A and FORUM B without having to change their orders as well.

Imagine if you wanted to insert a new forum in between FORUM A and FORUM B. You'd have to change FORUM B to order 3, FORUM C to order 4, then insert FORUM X to order 2...

So yeah, large numbers are better :)
