Important changes on our forum

We've performed some important changes on our forum.

Last time many new forums have been added and using of the forum became too hard. Now, all forums separated by native categories: Components & Controls, Site Scripts, Development Scripts and Utilities. Also, for some forums the "HOW TO"s threads were re-placed and moved to "inner" sections. We hope these changes will make our forum more useful and user-friendly.
