I've been having trouble configuring Mingle Forum. Our issue is that users can click on the forum, but they don't see any content. They just see a list of categories. If they click on a category, they still don't get to any content, they see a list of 'forums'. If they are persistent, they will click on a forum and then they see a list of posts, but they only see topic headings, not actual posts. At this point they could click on a post.
This is far too many clicks to expect a user to endure. Users who don't know about breadcrumbs will be utterly lost. I'd love to streamline all this. Why are categories of forums necessary?
Also I'd like to be able to have forums display with topics expanded. So you could read actual posts on the forum page instead of a list of linked headings. Users don't always write descriptive headings.
