The CMS should now have "Forum Holder" and "Forum" page types in the page type dropdown. By default SilverStripe will create a default forum and a forum holder.

You should make sure each ForumHolder page type only has Forum children and each Forum has it's parent as a forum holder. Eg not nested in another forum.

The module supports multiple Forum Holders, each with their own permissions and multiple Forums.

For more information on setting up the forums see the configuration documentation
