Re: Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I've used phpBB for several years and I have often had to ask for help with sometimes simple issues. For that, and the time and patience of those who (and there are many) have put up with my problems I say, a very heartfelt, "Thank you!" Also, the people who have supplied the Mods...Thank you all, a...

Re: Poll tab not displaying

You could point them to the FAQ as well. I was looking for something along the lines of a logic map of step-by-step instructions, specific to each individual option. I've begun writing the guide, only I have to use those options available to registered users in order to write about them accurately....

Re: Poll tab not displaying

Yeah, I'm aware of that and I'm sure the other admins are too. I assume registered users are aware, but that does give me the idea of maybe putting together a summary of board usage basics. Something quick and dirty for members to use as a quickie guide.

Well, thanks again.

Re: Poll tab not displaying

Yes, not all forums have the poll option. Some forums are locked, or otherwise, there is no need for a poll, and those particular forums shouldn't allow polls. What I'm surprised about is that the forum, "Nuts and Bolts" allows polls, but earlier, none of the admin accounts, mods, or the 4 registere...

Re: Poll tab not displaying

I had done that previously. I just didn't express it correctly. Sorry about that. Under Permission Masks/ forum-based permissions the forums that have been selected to allow Polls are displaying the Poll option enabled. Under Permission Masks/ user-based permissions no user or group is displaying th...

Re: My rant as to whether forums are dead....

I think anyone running a board has the same issues, be it now, or in the near future. I think social sites such as Facebook offer a more personalized venue, and thus more exposure for the individual than most discussion boards. To stand out in a discussion board among the multitude of posts and post...

Re: Poll tab not displaying

Hi Oyabun1, Thanks for the quick reply. I had reviewed the forum permissions , but, I didn't check group permissions . I notice the "Poll" tab is not included and the options to enable it and specify its usage is missing for groups and users. The MChat tab is in its place. The only section the poll ...

Re: Board Settings Don't Save

Hi ric, That was spot on. I did what you suggested and sure enough, the test board ACP submits worked as they should. Apparently, the update to the original did not configure properly. I'm going to replace the existing board with the test board (it being phpBB3.0.4), change the board name, etc... an...
