Good setup, free forum?

Post by Stealth-Steve on July 4th 2012, 9:33 pm

I setup the forum how I like it, and I've been asked by users to either create a 'membership' option (where my users pay for forum use) that's invisible to the public forum or to buy the forum as I've built it.(and their funds would go to maintenance etc)

I don't have knowledge to buy and move it elsewhere, what are my options?

If users want a forum that they can only access when they pay for it, what you can do is make a group for premium members, when they pay you can add them to the group... You can make all of the forums viewable by the groups only by editing the forum permissions... Does that help?

You can change hosts if you really want, but you'll lose everything you've already done on your forum.

So you can create 'memberships'/privilages where people who've paid an amount can access sections of the forum non-paying members/less privilaged cant?

Thanks.

Brilliant, saves me a lot of work! I just need to hunt round for premium options now then the settings for it.

Also, on a slightly different note I setup http://tsmw.forumotion.co.uk/ a while ago and I'm just launching social media connections but the forum says its 'expired' and I can't login or anything but also can't create an alternate one under that label because that's still there, how do I get around this?

Thank you.

No, it says "You have specified an incorrect or inactive username, or an invalid password."

So I click on Forgot Password and get "tsmw.freeforums.org was removed for inactivity on Jul 7, 2011.

For more information please contact our abuse department at abuse@freeforums.org"

Hi,

Freeforums.org is not a project of forumotion.com, if your issue is with one of their forums, please contact them at their support forum, or the nominated abusive email you have provided above.
http://support.freeforums.org/
Slg, I'd have thought that you'd have known this? scratch

If your issue is with a lost password on your forumotion forum, please review this topic, on how to reset your password.

^uh? Both are done through Forumotion?..

I just did the email abuse link thing, thanks.

So do I pay for premium member options or is there to guide to activating it all?

This to me indicates that your forum isn't with forumotion - we NEVER put our email addresses out publicly like that, only upon request.
Plus, we are not Freeforums.org, we are forumotion.com. We are totally different.
I do not see this when I attempt to login to your forum provided above, I see a normal incorrect password

You have specified an incorrect or inactive username, or an invalid password.

Can we please get a screenshot of this, including the url bar of your browser?

We do NOT have a premium member option, everything is free. You can choose to pay for certain things, which are exclusively: footer links removal, domain, additional storage space and adds removal. Everything else is free.

Hello,

There's a confusion, freeforums.org isn't a Forumotion domain name.
So, this forum : tsmw.freeforums.org wasn't created with Forumotion.
We can't help you with this.

But this one, tsmw.forumotion.co.uk , which loads fine, is a Forumotion's forum. Wink

Darren1 I think you're getting a little confused, and while I appreciate the tips writing a post in CAPS selectively makes it appear you're SHOUTING, rather than contributing.

If you look at the link I provided it clearly states 'Forumotion'; I have no idea why the notice I copied says something else, I just copied it. Il have to upload a screengrab tomorrow and show the issue but the forum I'm wanting to re-activate definitely has Forumotion branding.

I wouldn't know how you do, or don't give out email addresses and thanks for the tip, but it was the wrong way to give it.

Anyhow I have this for you guys:



I only have 3 email addresses, I've tried all 3 and get the same message. That said I have been able to 'sign up' today as a 'new user'?

[edit] actually I've just PM'd myself from the new account to see which email get's a notification..

[edit-2]
Tried logging in as admin using the right email and using the 'forgot password' link..

That forum, indeed is ours.
You can request a password change via the link below, Leeloo is currently out of the office, for the weekend. She'll be back on Monday. Sanket will login tonight.
http://help.forumotion.com/t93821-lost-founder-s-password

I'm sorry that you feel I was shouting, I was meaning to emphasize those words. I think that shouting is more then one word, not selectively one word.
We come from different societies.

The forum tsmw.freeforums.org is not a forumotion forum. The one with the screenshot, tsmw.forumotion.co.uk is a forumotion forum, which we can assist you with Smile

Um, actually I managed to create a backup, without being ignorant of the help - which is highly appreciated; it is possible to just 'delete' it?

Afraid not, I set up a fresh one to see where I was going wrong but that's working so it's pretty much done the job..

So, please provide by PM your forum's link and your creation email address.

If you want a password reset, I will make it.

If you want your forum to be removed, I'll remove it.

Wink
