Hello, I have the new version of mybb installed.

I would like to know what the use is of Forum Type when creating a new category/forum

What's the point of that. I can not see how it effects the front end.

Thank you.
Category -> Group of forums.

You can also have categories inside other categories/forums, the difference is essentially that categories cannot contain threads directly, only forums, e.g. is a category.
