Adding two forums to the same page.

I added two forums to the same team site, in hind site this was not a good idea. They now seem to act in tandem and I can not delete either one as it causes a java script error when I click on the Down Arrow associated with either web part. Unfortunately it does not cause a large enough error to take me to the maintenance page where it offers me the option to delete one of the web parts. Is there a way to navigate to that page so I can delete one of the forum parts?

Yes, I came across this once and had the same problem. Just add the magic "?contents=1" to the url of the site and you'll go into maintenence mode. You can then just delete one of the web parts.

Note that this will not delete the lists. The web part is just an interface, the data is still there.

You also can't put two forums on the same site or area as they will just share the lists (although if you really wanted to, you could put two forums on one WSS site but in different document libraries. they'll still share the data though).
