Thanks for the quick response.

I am phpBB2 (subsilver).

It says my users have rights. I can't seem to see an easy way to register either when I log out of my admin panel - still confused.

Is the Guests box checked too for the log in? I can not see any of the navigation menu.

Also can I give someone else admin abilities to help me construct the forum, or can only one person be admin?

Did you add any codes or change anything recently?
You can add more members to the administrator group.

Please do not double post.

All I changed was some graphics and added some forums - that's about it.

I must confess I didn't even look Sad

Looking at my forum, can you see a registration link? I am getting rather confused and can't see what I've done wrong... shouldn't this all be seamless if all I did was change some graphics and colours?

That worked.

Now I have a friend who says her name is taken, but I can't seem to find it when I search for registered users.

What's going on?

Thank you again.

I still can't seem to see my friend's username there - is it perhaps the username is too small? It's five letters long - her name has not appeared, but even when I try and register it it says "username registered".
