It was requested that we create a new forum for forum administrators to share tips on running a forum. Things like how to build a community, dealing with problem users, etc.

If you have questions or tips for other admins, go ahead and post here.

Don't respond. Your posts don't make any sense in the thread once the idiots have been banned and their posts are deleted. wink

Running a forum can be apretty time consuming thing I'd say. Having to check back, update, plus the trouble of getting it set up in the first place. I mean, what if you get bored of the topic ten minutes after making the forum? Tough work I'd say. Blogs are probably easier.

Rick, I think this would be a great idea. For many new forum software purchasers, all this stuff is new to us, and anything related to helping resolve issues in the form of tips and advice from fellow administrators can only be a good thing. Thanks

ubbthreads is a commercial forum application; it is not free, instead you must obtain a license (through the order page).

After you've purchased a license and downloaded the script you would install it (following the instructions in the documentation).

From there you'd probably end up importing from your phpbb forum to your newly installed ubb.

OK, I'm 60 and haven't done an upgrade in a decade till now. And now, there are many things that look Greek to me. so, if an admin here can tell me how to make someone an admin in my forum, I'd really appreciate it. I used to know (with the old, old, old forum I had).

It isn't much different from the old forum threads... the product when downloaded and installed, installs an admin. To make someone an admin, be on an admin account (usually you can at least log in using Admin <password> *Default Admin*...(If you are an admin you can use your own account)

Go to Control Panel and Member Management... type in the screen name (or even user name if known) and it will search for that member... click on the member you want to "edit"... Click on Permissions tab.. you will see a spot to check to make an admin. Click that Scroll to the bottom of page and click update member button... voila you have a new admin.
