I have a forum at http://everythingghost.co.uk/forum/portal.php
The index is accessible via the Portal.
I have an old board, it is 3.0.8. Probably a lot of you will be appalled by that.
The reason I didn't upgrade it yet was:
1) not really knowing how. The original board I have was set up by a site called freeforums.org many years ago for a fee, I didn't do it myself, and I'm afraid I'll botch it by doing it myself
2) I want to keep the iPortal I have, and I think that this will disappear if I upgrade.
3) The forum has been running OK, for the most part.... except the chatroom is a bit antiquated and I'm sure you guys will know lots of reasons why I should upgrade to the latest versions
4) I'm just not sure what will happen if I upgrade it, what will be kept or lost, what changes will happen, how easy it is....
However, I also have a big problem!
About 6 months ago I wanted to create a new, second Admin, as I didn't really want to do the job any more.
I started off by making her an admin in the administration panel, and then she started getting all the New registration requests into her Inbox.
However she neglected this, and in the end I wound up deleting her as Admin, and I then tried to work out how to make sure the new registration requests came to me.
I have failed to do this, and so now all the newly registered people don't go anywhere, I have no idea where they go, who they go to, but none are appearing on the forum. I also stopped getting ANY emails at all to my Inbox for the forum.
Lord knows how I have messed this up, but I don't know how to undo it. I really need some help.
The forum is dying now because no one registering is getting through.
Can anyone help me to get back all the emails so they are coming to me, including newly registered people?
Baby steps for me please, no techy jargon!
