[Closed] How to add new Forum not attached to existing forums.
I asked back in v1 of WPforo for the ability to have some forums on a page on my site, but then the ability to create another forum(s) not connected to the existing support forums, for different uses, such as community sharing of photos. Yeah. You guys provided that in V2.
But now I cannot figure out how to do that. It has been years since I created my first forum page with two support forums under a Support Category. I don't remember how I did it.
I have gone through your documentation and Google'd the heck out of how to do this, to no avail.
I currently have one category called 'Support Forums' with two Extended format Forums entitled 'Support' and 'Wishlist'. And these are on a page on my site (see link above). It appears that I created the forums simply by adding a Text module and putting the "[wpforo]" tag inside it.
Great, now I want a new Forum called "Community Sharing" on a new page on my site. Can someone please walk me through the steps.
Must I have a new Category, or can I create a forum without a category?
It appears that I have created a category by adding a new forum without a parent. Is that the right way?
When I do this, my old forum page now includes this new 3rd forum. Not what I want.
/forum used to only show Support and Wishlist forums. Now it shows all 3.
I am lost. How do I get my new category&forum on a new page, and leave the old page alone as it was?
Do I create the new page, or it seems when I click on the VIEW button for the forum, the page already exists. So lost.
Update: After much fiddling around and just figuring out how things seem to work, here is what I did and how I believe it must be done. But please correct or add additional info if appropriate.
- I need a new Category for my new Forum
- I don't need to create pages in WordPress for my forums, I simply get the URL from the WPforo plugin page and add a new menu item (Custom Link type) with that URL. Now users have access to one page with Support forums and one page with Community sharing forums.
- Where does that page come from? It seems to have content from the older Support forums page.
- What if I want to create a menu item/link that shows only Unread posts from the Support forum. How would I do that?
Default Board(slug: forum) > X Categories > Each category has x Forums
New Created Board(slug: whatever you want) > X Categories > Each category has x Forums
Now you have 2 Forums in Different Pages.
