    I went to your forum and noticed that "Gadgets OS" is already a subforum (what you call a "child board") of the "Gadgets" forum. Is the "Software" ( NOT Software's) category different from the "Downloads" forum? If so, maybe you can make "Software" the parent forum and "Downloads" the child. Also, "Hardware" needs clarification - is it only Computer Hardware or other types as well? As with "Software", perhaps "Hardware" can be the parent forum, with different types being the "child" boards.

    The reason why i asked for help was to find out whether software and hardware would be useful and which seems the case but then i didnt know the best place to put them on the site, hence I requested help but I'm still not clear as yet If i have software as the main board and child been the downloads and same for hardware then the compact will not be the case which i dont want. Anyways thanks for the help any one else want to share thoughts?

    Since you have Gadgets as the main topic then you can put Gadget Os as the sub-forum. And hardware and software can be main forums and Downloads can also be a parent if you do not want it under the Software category. With regards to where you should place them i think both Software and Hardware can be placed in the Tech Section only anywhere in the Top 3 slots.

    If your forum is a Tech forum, it's good to go with those categories or sub forums. But I notice that your forum is getting spammed. I see 2 spam posts in recent posts. Thank you.

    I'm confused by this - what do you mean by "the compact will not be the case"?
