Subcategories / Parent Topics

    It would be nice to be able to structure categories so that a Talkyard site can be more specifically organized. For my case I would like to be able to make an 'Operating Systems' Category and then contain Subcategories like 'Windows', 'OS X', 'Linux', etc., and then be able to minimize/expand like an accordion. Another nice feature of this would be the ability to choose which categories are expanded by default.

    1. Ok yes this will be implemented eventually (I need this too for similar reasons), and ... this probably won't happen within the nearest two months. Probably, a PWA mobile app + push notifications, and per category and per-tag notifications, will get implemented before this.

      This: "be able to minimize/expand like an accordion" — hmm, you mean, on the Categories page, some categories could be collapsed, others expanded? And also sub categories could be expanded / collapsed? (only of relevance, if the parent category is expanded, I suppose)

      If you want to & have time, it'd be interesting to see an example of how this could look like :- )

 In the Tom's Hardware Forums you can see there are Hardware, Software, Networking sections, each with it's own sub-sections. If I could click 'Software' and then see all of the sub-sections and the recent topics in them, that would be very useful I think.
