Solved can we have our forums compltely reset

Post by Spottedleaf on June 14th 2012, 10:18 pm

Hello,
I have just recently started a forum of my own just a few weeks ago. Since i made the forum i have gotten a few members, one day a member asked me about redoing the forum or making a new one since we didn't have very many people and the site wasn't very active.

It is my first time making some thing that is so complicated so i wouldn't have much experience about websites.

The question is can i have my current forum deleted or reset to remake the current forum fixing my mistakes from the last one? The member that asked me to do some thing like this one the forum is summer*(registered user in form).

You can always select a new skin or theme and re-do it.
As far as post or members they will remain unless you was to delete them. You can also delete each forum and create new ones in place of them..If there is content on some of the forums you wish to keep. Be sure you move any content of post or threads to a new designated forum before it's deletion or you will lose it. You will see how that works when you go to delete a forum that has content in it. It will ask you if you want to move all of it's content to another forum, If you do then you select where it is going, If you dont then it will be deleted.

There is no reason to delete the whole forum then create a new one.. I mean you can do that but you will have to use a different email address and most likely a different forum address when you create a whole new forum/site. It may take some time before the forum address you have now would be removed out of forumotions data base, So you are better off keeping the forum/site you have now and just start fresh from that with a new skin,theme, and forums

If you only had your forum for a couple weeks then you can always go back and restore your forum in your forums utilities tool as well. You would log in here with original email address and pass you used when you created the forum.

You can also go to your themes management and select a date to restore the theme as well.

Other then that, just get what skin and theme you want now and work from there, Once again you can always delete any forums and or categories you have set up now and ad new ones back. Keep in mind you can also change your forum address to something different if you like as well.

However if you have purchase a domain name then you do not want to change the forums address, The only way to change the domain name would be to buy a new domain.

Also keep in mind. It may be a good idea to keep the forum you have now as a test forum to test things on. Then create a new forum with a new email address, So you will have a brand new forum, and still have your old one to use a test forum.. It is always good to have a test forum to test things first before you add to your main forum.

So just anther option to keep in mind if you would rather do that Smile
