Hmmm, I didn't explain that very well. I am looking at having only sub-nodes in a category. The idea is to reduce the real estate used for a group of nodes that get very little use. I see now that the default setup requires one node in the category so that it is the main node for all the sub-nodes. Perhaps I am better off to change the appearance of the nodes so they just take up less space.
I've been poking away at this and getting closer to a layout that works for me. The problem is that I want users to go ONLY to the sub-forums. That means the h3 title "Corporate Sponsors" must not have a working link (it could however go to the forum index so the same page loads).
node_44 contains all the node content, the only thing different is that the sub-nodes exist in subForumsPopup/subForumsMenu.
Suggestions on varoius methods to deactivate the link?
