Forum hierarchy settings?

Hi there,

Just installed the Cyb Sub-Forum manager plugin and loving the results so far. Running into one snag though. I can't seem to figure out how to add sections with categories and subcategories underneath.

The website I'm working on is http://www.educationhq.net/forum

An example hierarchy would be

Course-Notes.Org Lounge
->Off-Topic
-->Announcements
-->Everyday Life
-->Debate Board
-->Introduce Yourself
-->School Advice
-->Site Issues

Right now I've got it looking the way I want it to, but the 'Course-Notes.Org Lounge' doesn't have any child categories. It's just a top level forum. Here is the setting I have for that forum

Act as Forums: No
Forum is Active: Yes
Forum is Open: No
Index New Posts in Search Engine: No

Here are the settings I have for the Off-Topic level forum:

Act as Forums: Yes
Forum is Active: Yes
Forum is Open: No
Index New Posts in Search Engine: Yes

Here are the settings I have at the Announcements level forums:

Act as Forums: Yes
Forum is Active: Yes
Forum is Open: Yes
Index New Posts in Search Engine: Yes

Here are the settings I have for my depth display settings:
Depth of Forums - Forum Home: 1
Depth of Forums - Forum Display: 1
Depth of Sub-forums - 1

Ideally, I'd like my forum to looks like forums.bimmerforums.com where it has the single line forum title bar act as the parent category for the sub forums. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks so much for your help!
-Chris

Thanks ChopSuey! That fixed the problem! I swear I tried that before and it didn't work. Guess not....

Could be the way you setup your forums actually.
