I see the forum documentation mentions that there should be a Move option in the Forum Management part of the admin control panel, however, I don't see it. Is this something that needs to be enabled or am I just missing something? Thanks.

I guess an easier question is, can I just edit the category field in my forum SQL table for each forum to put them in the category I want them to belong to without any negative side effect?

Reassign it to different cat.

There's no easy way to move between categories without moving a forum into the trash bin? It really seems like you should be able to move forums between categories without deleting and at worst just editing the cat_id should do it (atleast that's how it looks in the code).

Maybe just a matter of perception. Anyway, if you don't like it, write a patch.
