Separating forum so it stands out like sticky post

Post by Wing6704 on January 29th 2013, 4:21 pm

Hi peeps,

I seem to be posting a lot today!

I have been asked to make some changes to the forum and this is another issue I'm not sure how to fix, it might require coding? Or it might be something much easier?

In the below image I would like to take the Forum titled 'POST YOUR CASES HERE' and separate it from the rest, much like sticky posts. Is this possible, and if so how would I achieve this?

Many thanks,
Ash

Hi,

Your only option would be create a Category and the forum by itself..

Seems I did the classic mistake of creating creating several forums - rather than creating a category with the forums within. Oh dear.

It's not an issue. I hope.

I have one last question in relation to the image again. On the header of the browser window the title 'Advanced Orthodontic Solutions' is visible. Is there a way to change this to 'Orthodontic Solutions'

We are paying for some extras within the site and I have been asked to change the title.

Thanks,
Ash

Can you please provide the URL of your forum? I want to see if it's an image or text.

If it's text you can change it: ACP >> General >> Configuration >> Forum Title or Description.

Image: ACP >> Display >> Pics Management >> Advance Mode >> First Tab.

Also, take a look into these threads:

Hi CJ11,

I mean the browser window here:


It says: 'Free Forum: Advanced Orthodontic Solutions'

We would like it to read 'Orthodontic Solutions'

We have paid for a years subscription for a web address and thought we would lose the 'free'? Is that correct?

I'm also guessing the only way to fix the creation of several forums is to create a category, then the forums within. Then shift all the posts over. The site is relatively new with very few posts so it's not a major task right now.

Yep, but you don't have to move anything you can attach the forums into the categories you create. Razz
