adding catagories and unessecary emails
for some reason , the changes i make to my forum don't stick. when i was changing my color scheme, some of the features kept changing back to default.
and i'm getting an abundance of email whenever i try to delete a forum/catagory or whatever big changes i make, i deleted my email addy from the box for that function, and i still get emials. and on top of that, the forum/catagories will not delete for any reason, they are still there. then when i get to about 10 forum/catagories, it seems that i can't add anymore. please help , i'm at my wits end. thank you for your time.

Re: adding catagories and unessecary emails
Ok you didn't have catagories in some of them it looked like so i added them as Main which is where they were. to change that if you wanted them elsewhere you go into Edit Forums-and pick the ones you want moved and then Edit Settings-in there you can change the catagory. Did you make a forum with no name or is that something that appeared on it's own? DO NOT try to delete it-BbBoy needs to look at that. :smile: I am working on it still. :smile:

Re: adding catagories and unessecary emails
Ok we got a lot of us there and I see now that things look ok except for the one forum with no name-had you accidentily made that one or did it appear? The trick with catagories is to name them exactly the same and then to reorder them under the established catagory you want to add it to. :wink: All new forums appear on the bottom so by reordering them up into the proper place that eliminates the 'duplicate' catagories effect. :smile:

Welcome to Best Boards TheBattosai. I went ahead and change the top teal green table cells to black to better match the color scheme you set up-you can alter those in the Edit Template screen. :smile: Give BbBoy a chance to look at that one blank forum # 4 is it I believe, there might be something up if you did NOT make one on accident that was without a name. :smile:

Re: adding catagories and unessecary emails
You can set your forums to be like what we have here on the Support board by going into the individual Forums Settings and in the Posting Restrictions area allow Guest Viewing, Posting and Starting of threads. :smile: That will take care of those people who do not want to register-that is the only way people who do not sign up and use a verfiable email can post on boards. You can not regsiter a username without having a valid email address.

Here is a link to the User Level set up in our newest online Tutorial: User Level Set up so that should help you get the User Levels set up to your liking. Welcome to Best Boards TheBattosai. :smile:

There are a certain amount of stars under the users info in your catagory, now i read the help guide, and I'm sorry if i'm just not "getting it" but i didn't see anywhere where it specified that options, i'm sure it's there, i just can't find it, or i'm repeatedly missing something. i 'd like to have the stars under my users name go up aswell as their membership ranking. I hate to be a nusiance, but i have some dedicated members coming from another forum and i just want to give them the best.

to set up the star ranking, do i go to the snowflake sections or main settings?

http://denim.bbboy.net/bishonenslavechambers-edituserlevels?

That is where you can add stars to your user levels. You'll see the buttons next to each level for Delete and Image-click the image button and in there you'll see a series of images to choose from that we have for people to use, you can use your own if you like and then you put in the number of images you want displayed and submit the changes...

This is how you get images below user levels-there is no way to get images below usernames however. :smile:

If you need anything else let us know-if that wasn't clear enough just ask about what you don't understand and I'll try to help. :smile:

Re: How do i get stars under the members names like here?

Re: How do i get stars under the members names like here?
Yup, that's right - admins and mods don't get stars for reaching post levels, like normal users do.

However, you can add an image underneath your title, using the admin title box there in "Edit User Levels" if you want to. :smile:

Re: How do i get stars under the members names like here?
thanks i posted that link on my site for other to read, ok, a few more questions, as my members are coming over, i see some things that i need ot ask.

1.can my mods ban members?
2. the games, can two ppl play or just one, also it says that someone is playing, when actually, that person has been logged off for 30min. and I can play that particular game
3.for some reason (and it may be my fault) i can't add any images under my title just at the top of the where you see the green star now.

thanks for your time

Re: How do i get stars under the members names like here?
1) No, only admins can ban members.

2) Some games are for 2 people - which particular one are you referring to? The games are still in "beta" which means that enhancements are planned for the future, including fixing the problem where someone has left the game earlier.

3) You should be able to add an image to your title. Go to "Edit User Levels" and where it says "Administrator Privs", there is a box to the left of it.

Whatever your admin title is, type it in that box and then add the following:

Code:

<br><img src="http://imageurl.gif">

Re: How do i get stars under the members names like here?
ok, so if i want my mod tobe able to ban, i have to either add an admin title to them or make them admins. and if i do, will they be able to do the same things i can do with the forum, like will they be able to see my entire admin center?

and the games were tic tac toe, hotdog, and rock paper scissors.

also, when you look at ppl profiles and where is says total post, it's always 0.

thank for all of your help, i really appreciate it.

Re: adding catagories and unessecary emails
Yes, if you make them admins, they will be able to do anything you can do. For this reason, we don't recommend making anyone an admin unless you know them well and can trust them implicitly. :smile:

If a mod thinks someone needs banning, all they need to do is let you know by a PM or email, and you can do it.

The profile post count is a known bug and will be fixed with the next release. At that time everyone's post count (both at boards and globally) will be recalculated. :smile:

Re: How do i get stars under the members names like here?
If you ever see changes you made that don't seem to have taken effect try doing a hard refresh on your browser; hold down Control + Shift + click Refresh on your browser or hit F5 to get a current copy of the page you're veiwing. Some browsers won't actually reload the page you made changes to and doing the hard refresh allows it to get the newest copy off our servers. :smile:

Hi TheBattosai,

Quote:

1.in the "inpower" section, an old member is still there, and i deleted that member from my forum, how can i get the name "moog" off of list?

The problem arose because you didn't "demod" that member before deleting him. However I think you can delete him from the "Mod Display String" box on the "Edit Forum Settings" screen. You'll have to do this for each forum of which he was a moderator. That should delete him from the "In Power" screen as well. :smile:

Quote:

2. My spoiler box, isn't working. when i use it and then post with it the message is in plain view for all to see. how can i hide my message?

This is because the background color and text color of the spoiler are different. You need to make these the same for the spoiler to work properly. :smile:

The category list normally gets updated once a day, but since your board is on the denim server, it will take a bit longer as we need to adjust something there. You can add your board to more categories in the same way you added it the first time. :smile:

Quote:

one more problem that i've noticed, when i enter my favorite site and boards, and when i click on the link i get this:
http://azure.bbboy.net/http://www.animeniacs.org/

That's because the urls are wrong in your board/site favorites.

For web sites you enter the url like this:

http://www.animeniacs.org in the URL box and the name you want it displayed as in the Name box.

For boards you enter the board ID only (not the full url) in the BoardID box (e.g. you'd enter bishonenslavechambers for your board) and the name you want it displayed as in the Name box. :smile:

Re: adding catagories and unessecary emails
Are they moderators? If so, they don't get post ranking titles or images. If you want them to have some sort of title or image under their names, you'll have to either set special ones for moderators or give them individual custom titles. :smile:

The problem was that you had a completely blank user level (no title, no number of posts entered), which was over-riding the 0 one. :smile: I've deleted that for you.
