Once you get all of your Categories added, you can even go back to existing Forum Discussions and change or add to a Category you created. I was a little concerned about the URL changing on existing Discussions. But, so far, so good. I did not see any URL change. Ning get a good job on this, from what I see.
After you have your Discussions organized, you can start adding those special Announcements.
How to Add a Special Category and It's Discussions to Your Home Page - - via RSS Feed?
BTW, don't look for my Announcement RSS just yet. You will continue to find the latest Announcements listed directly under the Video of the Week. I'm still working on the "Latest Happenings..." HTML, and getting my announcement links moved to the RSS.

Do I have to go somewhere at Manage page to activate/enable RSS funtionality for my Network?
Found this tip today and it kind of does what i was looking to do.....
I always wished i could add more than one forum module on main page....So i could display latest discussions, featured discussion and a forum category all at the same time...but in different areas of main page.
Anyways i added a couple RSS Boxes to display a forum category and featured discussions....and my Forum module is set to display latest discussions
Just had a couple of questions...
1- Is there another way to do this?? The RSS feeds are ok but doesnt show member thumbnail and all the other info
2- If RSS Feeds are my only solution, is there a way i can set them to display most popular, instead of latest?
3 - I was trying to use a RSS Featured for a specific forum category, but it listed all the featured discussions for all forum topics.....Is there a way jus to list featured topics from a specific category?
Sorry if this doesnt make sense or is newbie stuff...never messed with this stuff much....Just lookin for a way to bring out various forum topics on to the main page
Any guidance, tips or suggestions would be great!!!
