What is a category? What is a heading?

Your forum can contain multiple categories. Each category can contain multiple topics. Each topic can contain multiple replies. Headings are used to organize your categories.

For example:
You can have a category called "Apples" where users would chat about different kinds of apples, a category called "Oranges" where they would chat about different kinds of oranges, and a category called "Bananas" where they would chat about different kinds of bananas.

You could then create a Heading called "Fruits" and put all those categories under that heading. The heading would just be used to organize those categories. Headings are very helpful when you have many categories. It allows the user to easily choose the category that is appropriate for their discussion.
