Forum includes Categories, which allows an overview for all Boards by category with the number of discussions available on each board listed. Categories are set when creating a Board and allow for the Category View when on the overview page for the Forum module.
Categories can be enabled with the Category View. To enable Categories:
- Go to Configure at the top menu in Admin.
- Underneath Modules at the left menu, choose Forum.
- At Overview Type, you can switch to Category. When you switch to Category, all boards can be categorized in Publish. This view will show all boards by category on the overview page for the module.
