Solved Welcome Message Not Showing

Post by That Admin Person on March 23rd 2013, 6:48 am

I'll edit everything for the "Welcome Message" from my Admin Panel, using HTML, but nothing ever shows up! I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong or if I should just use plain text and see if that works. What I'm trying to do with the HTML is make certain words bolded and certain words have a link attached. For HT, I'm supposed to use "<" ">" icons, correct? (Sorry for all the questions.)

I'm using regular text and when I need to bold certain words or use a URL, I use "<" ">" "/". I can't remember or find the exact code, because exactly when I save the welcome message it takes me to the very first page of the Admin Panel directory, but there is a no-show on the homepage, so every time I go back to try and edit the welcome message again, my welcome message that I typed up is completely gone.

Display > Homepage > Generalities > Homepage Message

Did you hit save after adding the text?

You can also just use BBCodes in the message.

If the code is simple, why don't you use the HTML editor directly instead of adding the codes yourself?
First you have to use the HTML editor for the HTML codes to work.




Then you have to activate the HTML codes
Admin CP. - General - Messages and e-mails - Configuration - Allow HTML: Yes
And in your profile - preferences you have to activate the HTML as well. Though usually this is activated by default.

My Welcome Message Editor does not look like this.

Could you post a screenshot where you are entering this welcome message? Also Chrome has an issue of not showing the HTML button.

If this is about the Admin CP - Display -Homepage - Generalities, then the homepage message editor works the same, and you can see that message only in the forum's index.

Yes... I think That Admin Person wanna welcome message to be on homepage, something like this:

This can be set as an announcement too: ACP > General > Announcements... and here one can set welcome message on homepage:

This isn't what I'm looking for. I know how to set TEXT announcements, but not image announcements. I found my own solution to the problem. Thanks for helping anyways.

You wrote: ""Welcome Message" from my Admin Panel"... this is Welcome Message in ACP:



... and you cannot see it on your homepage but a new member get it via PM after registering and logging in... I've already written about it. If you meant something else you should have explained what you exactly wanted... but if you solved your problem this topic should be locked.

Not the "Welcome Message" for new users via PM. I'm talking about the Welcome Message for the homepage. But thank you anyway.
