#3101 new enhancement

Subscriptions and Moderators have no sense for a Category

Reported by: casiepa's profile casiepa Owned by:
Milestone: Future Release Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: trunk
Component: Component - Forums Keywords: needs-patch


A forum can have subscriptions and can be moderated, but when it's a category there seems to be little sense to subscribe to it or moderate.

So the 'Subscriptions' and the 'Moderators' meta box could be removed/hidden when editing a forum of type category

  • Keywords needs-patch added
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release

For moderation, yes, I don't think we need the 'Forum Moderators" meta box though, it serves no purpose for categories.

IFor subscriptions I think there are use cases for subscribing to categories:

My IT Forum:

  • Apple Operating Systems Category

-- iOS
--- iOS 10
--- iOS 9
-- macOS

  • Windows

-- Windows 10
-- Windows 9

For the not great example above, I might want to subscribe to all the iOS forums of a category
