  3. Set the properties.
    Set the properties of the Forum instance. For more information about the specific properties, read For developers: Forums.

    NOTE: When creating new forum, its Ordinal value is assigned to be the last. If you want to manually assign the Ordinal value, you must make sure to update accordingly the Ordinal values of the other forum groups. For more information, see For developers: Reorder forums.
