How to create categories using the forum plugin

The screen shot/avatar for the forums plugin shows the category “General Discussions”. But I cannot find any settings area to set up categories. I am only able to create a new topic on the main forum page. How can I create categories for the topics to go under?

    It is possible to create multiple forum sections. You will need to go to Settings > Forums, and increase maximum number of forums. Then go to the Forums page in your dashboard and create a new forum.
