Solved My .tk dillema, for my forum! :) No it's not solvedyet, sorry!

Post by MarkWilliams on January 5th 2013, 3:19 am

Hello everyone!

My name is Mark and I am the administrator of www.freedomia.forumotion.com.
I am also the owner of the domain www.freedomia.tk.

I have tried, and tried, and tried--and I have been unable to get this to work! I have tried the tutorials, and nothing works Sad

If I could have the exact instructions to turn my forum into www.freedomia.tk it would be most appreciated! What should I type exactly on my .tk domain settings for www.freedomia.tk? What do I do on my admin interface, exactly?

I will make a noble in my nation the person who helps me. Laughing

Smile

What exactly is the problem? You do know that you have to wait atleast 72 hours for it to work properly.

In your Forumotion administration panel, try adding the link without the www.

Rats! Nothing. You mentioned 72 hours earlier, would you elaborate what you mean by that?

Thank you for your input, sir! Hello

The only problem with this is that...well, I don't have any money Crying or Very sad . I need a free domain service, and something that lasts longer than a year, unlike .co.cc.

Do you have any ideas?

Then you can save up some money for a domain name. You can find $1.00 domain name coupons for godaddy.

Sounds neat! Hey, look at this!



Don't know what it's about, but maybe we're on to something!!

Did you edit the templates recently or do anything else?

Oh, never mind, 'tis all good. I've decided I'll take your advice on the coupons. Hey, I did get $20 for Christmas, so maybe I do have something after all!

Very Happy
