My forum has been locked for 2 weeks-I cannot unlock it.

Post by fbyhunters on December 20th 2010, 3:58 am

http://forhuntersbyhunters.forumotion.com/forum
I have tried everything to unlock my forum.It is locked (somehow the entire forum is locked at user or new member level).After trying everything to unlock it I found a note that said my site was under maintenance (that the admin was completing maint- on the site.I am not maint. anything but am the admin.This has had the site locked up for 2 weeks.I am wondering if I have been sabotaged by my first moderator that I gave permissions to?
Can someone help me with this? I have tried the FAQ and the rest of the forums but I am typically not allowed to start a new topic or reply to other topics(just like anyone who wants to join,post or view my forum).
Please advise.
I really need to get this resolved asap.Thank you.

Hello & Welcome!

Hello and welcome.

Because you are new, here are useful links where you can look for answers :

Arrow General Rules
Arrow Frequently Asked Questions
Arrow Tricks & Tips
Arrow Lost your Founder password?
Arrow Complaint against a forum
Arrow Maximum Security for your forums
Arrow Rescue tool/Back up tool for your forum
Arrow How to clear your cache
Arrow My forum was hacked, what to do?
Arrow Forumotion Limits
ArrowWhy do we ask explicit titles?
Spoiler:
The forum's search engine bases its research on keywords found in topic titles.

When you do a research, do you use "help", "urgent", "problem", "SOS" or "question" as keywords to look for topics about your problem/question?

Certainly not! So this is why it is important to use titles related to your problem/question. Doing this makes the researches much easier for visitors who use the search engine to get an answer to their question.

Thanks for your understanding.

Cordially
Forumotion Staff


So the forum is unlocked now but still on maintenance, sorry if I can't understand it, and to check the activity done by your administrators on the admin panel, please check it here:
Admin Panel > General > security > Administration

Need an actual screenshot of your settings on your Admin Panel > General > Configuration

Also, do you have your forum on holiday?

At the bottom of my home page "Forum is Locked" is illuminated red.
Can I send a screen shot via PM as a saved file or paste it via PM?
What next?

That's only a legend, it doesn't mean your forum is locked.

When my wife logs in or other people(who have emailed me) they see that the forum is locked and that they don't have permission to post or reply to posts.
Nobody can post on the forum.I see that permissions are all enabling members.Once they log in- they can't post anything.
What is this then?

I just logged in your forum with a normal user account, and I can visit the forum and post with no problem.

I wonder why my wife can't or another friend who emailed me?
What is this also?

Is this a default message if you click the "under construction" button? I delete it and it comes back.
I will have to have my wife log on later today and see if she still doesn't have permission to post or reply.

That is really weird.Nobody could post or reply yesterday.Now it is open.I deleted a moderator yesterday- not sure if that had anything to do with it or not.
Really bizarre.
