Hello, just some advice please regarding my forum?

Post by ThomasCo on January 9th 2011, 6:32 pm

Hello everyone.

Love these forums btw and a great service that is offered.

http://chatties.forumotion.co.uk/forum

That is my forum. Few things I would like help with.

Firstly, can I have it just so that mods/admin can select a colour for the title of the thread?

There's an option, but if I select that then it allows everyone to select a title colour of the thread they want to create. I wanted it so that I could, as Admin, create a Announcement/Sticky and have the title stand out. If all users can select a thread title colour then it won't really work.

Secondly, I've selected that users can edit posts. This may cause problem if there is any abuse issues. Can I, as Admin, see edited posts by users? For example someone may put something abusive then edit it to make it sounds completely friendly. I've selected the time of 5 minutes, meaning users have 5 minutes to edit posts, does this apply to thread titles too?

I can't think of anything else at the minute, but I am still learning a lot and the admin panel isn't the easiest thing to get your head around.

Thank you very much.x

Another thing I thought of, can you send warnings to people?

As in a warning about their behaviour instead of giving them a straight out ban.

Is their a system for that and how do I access it?

EDIT:

Sorry just thought of something else. One of my moderators can't post on people's visitor message walls. They can post on hers, but she can't reply as there's no 'NEWPM*' option.

Does anyone know what is wrong please?

thanks Smile

1) No, everyone always wants functions to not alow something, create a rule instead, saying that you're not allowed to use them. Like here, anyone can use coloured text, you're not allowed to though so few people do.

2) No. Yes.

3) Add a warning bar, no official system though.
