Hi,

I must modify jForum to separate the different categories in 2 main parts.

Does anyone have any idea or suggestion on how to do this ?

For the moment, i'll just limit the separation in the interface. My problem is on the way to display only the first (or the second) half of the categories.

Thanks

Currently jForum does not have support for categories of categories (a jForum V3 to do item though). You might be able to "fake it" with some kind of category naming scheme that would allow the the parent category to find it's children. E.g.: Create categories like:

My Category
My Category - Child1
My Category - Child2

and make sure they are grouped together. Then do some template logic to find the top level category and display "psuedo" sub categories under them.
