Hi, 

I'm reorganising my site and I want to move the forum to a subdomain

eg forum.xyz.com rather than xyz.com

I've edited wp_options to set the base wpfor url to forum.xyz.com and the top level categories are visible but the links are all still xyz.com/forum/category/title rather than forum.xyz.com/forum/category/title

What else do I need to do?

Hi @jubal1,

Please navigate to Dashboard > Forums > Settings > General admin page, make sure the 'Forum Base URL' is correct, click on "Update Options" button regardless of whether you made a change or not.

Then navigate to Dashboard > Forums > Dashboard admin page, click on the [Delete All Caches] button.
