This will let you add as many forums as you like, only by separating them with a comma “,”.
The link will be added in the Admin CP under Forums management just below Manage Forums.
This plug-in is so useful in the case of starting up your forums, when you will have to mass add the forums for the 1st time.
The permission of these added forums or categories, are the default permissions when you add a forum without editing its permissions or settings.


Upload mfd.php to ./admin
Upload mfd.lang.php to ./inc/languages/english/admin
Upload mfdp.php to ./inc/plugins
Chmod ./admin/index.php to 777
Go to Admin CP > Board Settings > Plug-in Manager > Activate
You may now reset that chmod of ./admin/index.php back to 755

How to use:
In Admin CP Click Multiple Adding

To add categories
 Select nothing from the drop-down menu.
 Enter in the below box the categories’ titles separated with a comma (e.g. cat1,category2,categ3)
 From “Is what you are adding a Category” set it to yes.
 Click Add

To add forums / sub-forums
 Select the parent forum or category you want your forums and sub-forums to be added to.
 Enter in the below box the forums’ titles separated with a comma (e.g. forum1,forum2, forum3).
 From “Is what you are adding a Category” set it to no.
 Click Add

Case of wrong selections
 If you have selected nothing from the parent list, and then you have selected add as forums, then you will get a notification
 In any case that you select the parent of a category, the category will be a stand alone category, that doesn’t below to any parent. Just as normal.

When deactivating the plug-in make sure to chmod ./admin/index.php to 777
