Couple of Questions

Postby jeepbronco on Wed Oct 29, 2008 3:30 pm

Sorry to ask such dump questions. I recently took over as ADMIN for a board. The old ADMIN got upset and left us.

How can I unban someone? It says to use the appropriate combination of mouse and keyboard.

Also, the old admin. deleted everything from the board. (This was over a years worth of posts) Is there anyway to restore this?

Also, is there a way to set up a forum so that new users must have permission from the administrators before joining? Rather than simply creating a user id and password and registering with their e-mail address?

Thanks again for any and all advice!!!

For bans, in the ACP check under User Admin->Ban Control.

Once posts have been deleted they're gone. Unless you have a backup of the database there's no way to restore the posts.

As for the user activation, set it to "Admin" (ACP->General Admin->Configuration->Enable account activation (None, User, Admin)) in order to have an email sent to all administrators in order to activate accounts.

Just for fun, I'll sometimes merge two totally unrelated topics.
