Do you like how Forum - The Official vBulletin Resource! has their forum structure with Forum, Articles, Mods, Styles?

This article will help you in accomplishing that.
  1. First, you must make a new Forum.
  2. Set it how you want, but make sure the setting: Forum is Active is set to NO.
  • Personally, I also set Act as Forum to NO, and Forum is Open to NO.
Next Step is to make the sub forums you would like to be your category. Repeat this process for as many Categories you want.
  1. Create a Child Forum for the Forum you just made.
  2. Set Act as Forum to NO.
  • Personally, I also set the setting Forum is Open to NO.
Now we will make the forums we want to be showed.
  1. Next make another Child forum for this forum you just added, which will be the forum in which users post into.
Set that to how you want it.

Hope this helps!

If it needs instructions, there's room for improvement.
Give users what they actually want, not what they say they want. And whatever you do, don't give them new features just because your competitors have them!
