Hi,

(1) change the title "General Category" to something else more specific. How can I do that?

Go into the Admin Center => Forum Controls => Categories and check the box next to General Category and hit Go to edit. You can then change it in the Name input field.

Take a look through this in the YaBB Codex, it should tell you everything you want to know about setting up boards and categories. There's a couple of video tutorials in there too:

Hi. I'm just setting up my board now, and I'm pretty terrible at figuring out things. I now have a General Category heading where I've put a bunch of topics. Here's what I want to do now:

(1) change the title "General Category" to something else more specific. How can I do that?
(2) start more headings like "General Category" (with other names, of course)

In other words, when a user comes to my site, I want the home page to look like This Board's home page! With a few large Categories and a bunch of Topics beneath each one. Should be simple, but I can't find the proper instructions. I am logged into my site as admin so everything SHOULD be there somewhere! any help very much appreciated!
