Please describe your problem. I have set up various Categories and sub forums on my forum, however i am unable to create a new post on any of the boards I have no new post button.

I followed advice elsewhere to ensure my english us and english folders had the same images in them and they do,

As far as i know all permissions are set properly.. they all say yes to allow new posts, and the problem occurs as admin user also.

I'm totally new to php and phpbb so need a step by step instruction to rectify this

Your imageset/en_us folder is fine, so this must be a permissions issue. Can you PM me an admin account?

Couple of things. In every forum you have no post or new topic permission for registered users. Give those forums a Standard access permission role. You have also created a user role called Patient and have assigned it to a forum or two but have not assigned it to any users. I would get rid of all those custom roles until you understand permissions better.

Finally, your en_us language pack is not updated, which is why you get stuff like this in the ACP:

ACP_FEED_GENERAL

ACP_FEED_ENABLE:

Okay i've downloaded and installed the languages!
I've changed the permissions roles back to standard and i've had a few members join to see if they can post.

It seems we can all post in one board called the Day Room.. but not any place else.

Is there anything else i can try?
