    I don't think that the forum at that URL is a Vanilla Forum. As far as I know, Vanilla can't be set like that. That Structure is Categories - Forums - Topics, where as how I see it, Vanilla Simplifies that structure so that we don't waste time having to go through each forum looking for the information that we want.

    If you have need for a new forum inside of a category, just make a new category, your users will thank you later when it takes less than 2 minutes to find what they want.

    You can definitely set the homepage view to a categories list but it won't have as much informational columns as that forum and there won't be a newest posts box in the sidebar.

    Add Pages to Vanilla with the Basic Pages app
