Is there a way to show sub categories only on a forum?

I will try to explain!

So i have setup a forum called add on services, in this forum i will have subcategories but i only want them to show i dont want the "There are no threads to display." section as in picture as users will get confused.

Basically
when you click add on services forum i only want the subcategories to display. Is this possible??

u can restrict access to that forum by selecting can view node No and then for the others forums can view node Yes in usergroup permissions

That wont work as if i set the parent forum to cant view it will not show on the forum index and users wont be able to click it to see subcategories.

Ah i have figured it!

So for anyone else that might want to do this, instead of creating a forum for the subcategories i create a category that is a child of another category then in the new child category i put my subforums. Sorted! Knew there must be a way.
