All forums are a part of some forum group. Pre-defined forums need to be created within some particular forum group and ad-hoc forums are automatically placed into the AdHoc forum group upon creation. A forum group usually contains forums related to the same topic. For example:


Computers (forum group)
Announcements (forum)
Technical questions (forum)
FAQ's (forum)
Web design (forum group)
CSS (forum)
XHTML (forum)
