    Hello Friends

    I just installed phpBB3 but not able to create category/forum in that. If I did than they are not appearing on the forum.

    Kindly help and also tell me whether I should go with phpBB3 or SMF. I prefer free forum now.

    Please help ... as soon as possible.

    Thanks in advance.

    Permissions ! Check the permission setting of the forums you are creating. The easiest way is to copy the permission of the default welcome forum /category. And from there on you can alter it according to your personal need. If you still need help, shoot me a pm and i will have a look at it.


    Best Regards,

    ACP > Permission > Groups Forum Permission > Regsitered User

    Select All forum, then click on "Advanced permissions".

    Click "Post" Tab and select "No" for 'Can post stickies'.

    Now to disable signature click on "Content" tab > 'Can use signatures' select NO.

    The Click on Apply all Permission.

    Hope that helps
