Solved How do you make sections in a forum?

Post by Asheral on April 16th 2011, 3:38 am

Hey there,

I'm fairly new to forum'ing and I have a question.


In every forum, you have different sections.

i.e http://help.forumotion.com/f45-manage-the-appearance-of-your-forum


If you look, you can see a section that says: Warning & Read it
And then another section that reads: Topics

For some reason, I'm having trouble making sections like it. All my topics appear to be in one section.

Help please?

Hi, your title not being specific and therefore not facilitating research via the search option, I'm not answering (nor is any other member ) until you change your title to a more specific one, related to your problem

Why do we ask explicit titles?:
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.

Sadly, my PC seems to be the only one in the world that can't take a screenshot.

My link is here: http://nations-order.betaboard.net/

What I'm trying to do is divide up my forum into categories, but when I try to do it on my Administrator Panel, it doesn't work.

I want:
Alliance Information
Diplomatic Office
New Nation's Hall
All in one Section.

And then I'd like to have
Spam Station
Archive Room
In another.

I'm trying really hard to type what my question is... It's hard to type it rather then show it. I'm trying my best.

I've done that.

I've noticed there was something called a basket.

I want something like that.

All I did was add on to the section in which I have started. That's not what I want.

Hi, you want to separate stickies and announcements from the normal topics, right? If so, then please go to:

1. Administration Panel (advanced mode)
2. General Tab
3. Configuration (on the left, under Messages and e-mails)
4. Select "Separate announcements and stickies from the messages : With a table"

Smile

Alright, here is an example of what I want.

http://forums.erepublik.co.uk/index.php

As you can see, there is a 'General Area,' full of:

General
Suggestions
Non-eRepublik Discussion

There is also another section titled, 'Official eUK forums.'

In which you have:

Citizenship Applications
Public Disscusion


That forum is divided up into its own blue tab. With my forum http://nations-order.betaboard.net/ , it is all in one blue-ish tab... When what I want to do is divide it up.
