    How can you put the same forum in different sections. I searched but didn't see an add-on. I saw that Digital Point does this with several forums.

    For example..

    Category Search Engines has a forum called Pay Per Click Advertising with a sub forum Google AdWords which uses https://forums.digitalpoint.com/forums/google-adwords.35/

    Then he has another category, Business and Marketing has the forum called Pay Per Click Advertising with a sub forum Google AdWords which uses https://forums.digitalpoint.com/forums/google-adwords.35/

    How do you make different categories use the same forum?

    I don't see that forum under the search engines category.
    I only see it under business and marketing.

    Maybe it is just a Link Forum node type?

    I can see what you mean, and I'm not sure it's a "Link Forum" because it pulls last post and message / discussion count data too.

    @Brogan Sorry it's Google in the search engine one.. Then the sub forum Google AdWords

    @Dan No it's not the link forum as Google uses the same ID in both sections forum ID #5 and Adsense words uses #35 in both and both sections have last post info, which a forum link would not have.

    He wrote a custom plugin to do this. I remember him mentioning it awhile back, don't believe he ever released it though.
