Re: Finding trolls

I agree with David, it's usually easier with intuition. They'll often complain about the same thing or have the same writing style. It's easy to get a new username, IP or email address but it's difficult to write in a different way.

Re: How to migrate users, groups and permissions to a new forum?

Which tables do I need to copy? All of them You can't cherry pick some tables and leave others because they're all interconnected with user IDs etc etc. Migrate the whole board and then upgrade it and then delete the forums you don't want. The users will have to deal with the PMs themselves. Transf...

Re: My Forums donot show

You're welcome :)

Just remember that you need to make a category first with no parent, set permissions for the registered users to have standard access.
Then make a forum with that category as the parent and set the permissions again for that too.

Re: My Forums donot show

Fixed. You hadn't set any permissions for people to see the forums. Also the help and contact forums were not in any category, so I made a new category and moved them in to that, then set permissions and they showed up. Same for the other main forum. That had no permissions set and was a forum in a ...

A forum has to be in a category.
