Using unified pages/forums structure

The way forum structure is organized in Cotonti/Seditio is very different from the way page categories are organized. Each nesting level is a separate database table and category location is determined by parent category ID.

Many people here suggest using the same structure as in page categories.

Pros:
  • Similar structure management of the whole site
  • Edit several forums at a time
  • Unlimited category nesting
  • Simplified database structure
  • Easy breadcrumbs

Cons:
  • An administrator will have to deal with 1.2.3 path in forums too
  • A slight slowdown is possible due to linearized database structure
May the Source be with you!

I think this is a good idea, otherwise when you want to move the forums around, you have to click up or down, 1 by 1 by 1....etc

Can we put a forum threat as news at that moment?
Or is it still seperated?
... can we help you ...
