@jksh I agree. You could add these yourself to your Forum with editing of the templates/themes, but I'm not very good at that. Maybe change the text with Custom CSS/JS?
Category Admins (Sub-forum Moderators/Admins)
@Silvina If enough people ask for it, they build it. Maybe bump that issue up with a comment.
Or bump this, or the many other threads asking for subforums
I can actually work around categories, but i needed it to be self managed,
so in nodebb terms, the category moderators and/or category admins can be given access control to manage the category, including who to allow/disallow into that category.

To elaborate on my last point, that would require giving someone global admin access in order to allow a group access to a category. You would then manually add members to that group that needed access to that category.
Yeah, this is tricky -- having individual moderators manage whitelists (either by user or by group) is definitely not a typical use case for forums, much less subcategories.
As @a_5mith said, it's possible to do if every global moderator has access to the groups page, and can manage their own groups, but at this point, there's a lot more work that needs to be done before we can even approach doing something like this...
NodeBB is looking to be a great forum software to lookout for!
I appreciate you guys taking the effort to answer my queries.
Bump since subcategories are now on the books

i need that function too
uh-oh, also need this. Didnt know that it would be difficult to have the owner of a group be in control of a subcategory for that group.
