How do I organize forums and topics?

By default, the most recently created forum displays at the top of the Forums main page and the most recently created topic displays at the top of the list of topics within its forum. Forums and topics may be rearranged to change the order in which discussions are listed.

Access the Forums.

Select the Forums tool from the Tool Menu.

Select the Organize tab.

Select the appropriate number next to a forum's or topic's title.

From the number drop-down menu corresponding to the forum or topic you would like to move, choose a new number.

In the example pictured above, the Week 2 - Popular animated gifs topic is being moved from position 1 in its forum (the top of the list of topics) to position 3 (the bottom of the list of topics).

Other forum or topic numbers adjust automatically.

If you are reordering a forum, the position numbers of other forums will automatically change as needed.  Similarly, if you are reordering a topic, other topics within the same forum will have their position numbers automatically changed.

Reorder other forums or topics as needed.

You can renumber multiple forums or multiple topics within the same forum at the same time by selecting the new number of an automatically renumbered forum or topic and changing it to a different number.

In the example pictured above, the Week 1 - Cartoons & Memes topic is being moved from the automatically-assigned position 1 in its forum (the top of the list of topics) to position 2 (the middle of the list of topics).

At the bottom of the page, select Save.

View reordered forums and topics.

The reordered forums and/or topics will be displayed in the order selected on the Organize Forums and Topics page.
