I have an existing YAFNET forum at http://www.paydirt.co.nz/forums/  conserned with Gold Fossicking and Metal Detecting. At present these topics are all grouped together on a single page.

Unfortunately from time to time I get a bit of bickering between the gold fanciers and the swingers so I'd like to seperate these out across two distinct pages:

http://www.paydirt.co.nz/forums/ gold (could end in .aspx if required)

http://www.paydirt.co.nz/forums/ metal-detecting (could end in .aspx if required)

I'd like membership to be shared across both pages (as some users like both areas), but the pages themselves I'd like to be be filtered by topic groupings. Each page would only show "Active Discussions" for the topic grouping used.

Is it possible to setup 2 distinct pages each with a YAFNET user control on, but using parameters on the user controls which will filter the topics shown on each?

Thanks in advance for any ideas or solutions!

Not a lot of action here so I've cross-posted to stackoverflow:

Just in case anyone hits here looking for further info with same proble.

Well it is partially supported. If you create one board, whith two forum categories Gold and Metal detecting.

http://www.paydirt.co.nz/forums/metal-detecting )

- and specify the categoryid as attribute for the forum control

<YAF:Forum runat="server" ID="forum" BoardID="1" CategoryID="XXX">

But that solution is not perfect because in some areas it still displays posts and topics for the complete board. Only the Active Discussions shows the category specific topics

Thanks for that, much appreciated - I didn't know about the CategoryID property. I'll have an experiement and see what the results are.
