Creating a new forum programmatically

Hello

I'm having some trouble getting JForum to create a forum when called from another application. From what I can see everything is fine and the HTTPRequest string I build up is like this:

http://localhost:8080/jforum-2.1.8/jforum.page?module=adminForums&action=insertSave&categories_id=1&forum_name=testForumName&forum_desc=testForumDesc&forum_topics=0&forum_last_post_id=0&moderated=1&groups=2

The fields included above represent the not null ones in table jforum_forums in the database. And from what I can tell, this should be enough.

Yet nothing gets created.

I am also logged in as admin as I believe this has to be the case for creating forums anyway.

Can anyone tell me whre I'm wrong?

Thanks

Martin O'Shea.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
