    Categories would be nice. I'm sure you thought of that but I thought I would put the suggestion here.

    To add to this suggestion. It needs categories and the ability to assign different forums for threads per category.

    For event types?

    Shameless bump.

    Having only one forum choice for thread is not going to work. If we had categories then we could assign a forum to each category if we wish.

    I would like types/categories as well. Alternatively, I could make do with prefixes.

    I think there's another suggestion similar to this.

    I vote for different categories for different forum nodes.

    Yes +1 for categories, plus sub-categories within. This is pretty crucial for wider area sites vs one local location so events can be orginised by region or event type.

    Ability to choose a forum in which to create associated thread | Dentel.Zone

    Not sure I understand your point. That is a different suggestion and doesn't give us categories. I merely asked for categories and showed what they would be useful for. That thread only asks forum choices.

    This suggestion is for event categories. I think you may be mistaken it for forum categories.

    I need categories (similar to RM) on sidebar.
    Thanks a lot for consideration.

    Who want categories have to vote liking the first post.
    For prefixes eventually there is another suggestion thread

    Consider what you would use evebt categories for. If it is for event types like for example 'festival' or 'music' then consider that many events will fall into multiple categories and that by design content can only be in 1 xenforo category node. I suspect that many of us need a way of categorizing events that allows us to attribute multple categorizations to an event.

    If you need multiple categories per event then take a look at the suggestion for event types.

    XF content tagging is already supported...

    If I had to prioritize one feature, categories would definitely be it (including being able to specify where the event thread for each category was posted). Ideally I'd be able to specify an individual member or members who could post in that category (for our Supporting Vendors).
