Suggestion: Make "Feature Requests" tree a little bit more obvious

The nav bar on the left doesn't handle multiple levels well, thus leading to two "Feature Requests" with the same hierarchical parent:

If it's not possible to graphically represent the hierarchy, would it make sense to put the parent name in the title here?

    Hi @Pooh I was just testing that yesterday to see if it makes sense. I can try it and see to make it more clear! I'm actually looking for a way to hide the sub-categories in the sidebar menu so they do not appear. I'll revert shortly.

    I've actually ended up hiding these from sidebar menu (to keep it simpler) and then those are available on the category level. Let me know any thoughts about it!

    In two minds about that, @VioletChepil. Whilst it's not as confusing, the sub-forums don't stand out much when you're on the page.

    Yes I agree. I guess to keep in mind for future UX improvements. I just am planning to have more sub-categories in each like Tips & Tricks, so thinking that sidebar could get pretty crazy with list items. Let me investigate whether there is any way I can make those sub-categories stand out better too.

    Totally agree on the Sidebar @VioletChepil - however, could the sidebar be relational, and perhaps show the 1st level categories for the one you're in?

    All said, these are good problems to have! The community's getting more and more active and these are good to sort out now during it's beta phase.

    In the meantime, I've added an icon to the feature requests in category level.
    I think this helps a bit! https://community.fing.com/categories/fingbox
    What do you think @Pooh?

    Definitely helps, @VioletChepil. Not perfect, but it helps :)
