This tutorial should show you how to take a screenshot: https://help.forumotion.com/t140199-how-to-take-a-screenshot#952901 .

I already looked at your forum prior to posting, but all that does is show me the sections are not showing, it doesn't tell me why. In order to help you more efficiently I need to see how it is set up in your admin panel (as I can't access or see your admin panel), once I can see how it is set up, I can get a better understanding of what the problem may be and then guide you in fixing it.

Hi. I tried this one up till I got to Homepage which wasn't there but Home was so I went there but I couldn't see the Structure & Hierarchy was. So I am done with Forumotion cause I have never had trouble like this when I had my own Yuku and Aimoo group. I thought Forumotion groups would be easier to set up but I just can't take any more stress.

Hello,

Message board doesn't show up cause you have it set as a category with no forums attached to it.

Try this, go admin panel-->Categories and forums--> click on the greeen plus sign on the top right of the page, this will bring up the page you used to create the sections. Name it message board, make sure the very first option is set to forum, as seen the screenshot below, then save. It should then appear. Wink

Forumotion does have a very simple admin panel, it just takes a little getting used to initially, you gotta give it a chance. Everyone has the initial learning curve, none of us just came in knowing how to make a forum overnight. Wink
