Basic setup... cannot register??? 9 Years, 9 Months ago  
So I installed Fireboard for Joomla 1.5 - no problem. I quite like the way it looks and everything. But I have no idea how to register users or anything. I tried creating a dummy register account, to test, and it wouldn\'t let me.

It just reloads the register page, if anything at all.

Please help! this is a key feature on our website!!!!!!

Re:Basic setup... cannot register??? 9 Years, 9 Months ago  
This problem is due to the way J1.5 reads links and the way FB\'s links are developed. This is a compatibility issue with FB and J1.5. The best recommendation I can sugest for now is to disable the register feature in FB and have your guests register in using the mod_login file (usually displayed in a menu position) You could add this to a mod position located at the top of the page in vertical format. This would help with login and register features. In some instances the login feature doesn\'t work correctly with J1.5 either.

I don\'t suppose there\'s a dumbed down version of that for me? :)

I really appreciate the quick response, but my understanding of Joomla/coding is very limited and I\'m still feeling my way around.

Please help more!!!! I might even show a bit of leg in appreciation. :D

For the sake of simplicity, go into your administration panel, go to modules, site modules and locate your login module. On the right hand side of that modules screen it will be titled mod_login. Go in there and on the right hand side select \"ALL\". This will make your module display on all pages and allow members to register just like on the main page.

Re:Basic setup... cannot register??? 9 Years, 8 Months ago  
The original reply to my topic solved the actual problem - it allowed for login to the forum. However, I have absolutely no idea how to display \'Check your email for information\' after registering, or \'Invalid UN/Pass\' if it\'s wrong. It simply resets.

Is there any way to edit this information? The only thing I found allows for static messages, not messages for when a command has been entered...

I\'m going to get in trouble here. I\'m concerned that there will be resentment on the part of people I should not offend.

But fairness and future support requires thatI have my say. If I have to pay a price for being outspoken, so be it. It\'s in a valid cause.

The above answer that begins with the well intentioned, \"For the sake of simplicity, go into your administration panel\" is anything but. It is not written the way an efficient, effective and useful instruction should be written. It suffers from a problem all too common on \"support boards.\"

Since I happen to know what that message is trying to say, I will offer it hear in the sincere hope that it influences how other answers are written.

Open your Administrator Control Panel and follow the following sequence of > (means go to or select)

> Extensions > Module Manager > Login Form (if a red button with a white x is to the right, click on that and cause it to show the greenish swoop icon for \"enabled\") then click > on the words Login Form

When \"Module - edit\" opens, you should be in the control for \"mod_login.\"

Scroll down to Menu Assignments.

To the right of the label Menus, click on the round dot to the left of the word \"All.\"

Finally, scroll back up and on the right side, click on the icon for \"Save.\"

The Log In form will appear on all pages of your web site.

Yes, those directions take more effort to write. But they have the virtue of being clear, explicit and mistake-proof. They use correct terminology, not someone\'s memory of what the labels and commands might be.

Those are \"instructions.\"

Now if I have not gotten myself banned around here for talking truth to power, I\'m going to go post a question of my own in what I hope will be the correct venue, and hope also that it gets a response from someone who understands what my issue here is about.

Let me see if I am clear on this. I spent hours on end (hundreds of hours) reading posts and offering FREE support to fellow users, you are telling me how I should and should NOT reply?
Funny how the person I originally replied to fully understood what I was talking about and it SOLVED HIS issue.

Anyway, no worries, people like yourself have forced me to stop giving any kind of support here.
As you can see, I am NOT part of FB core team, moderator, support or anything else. I am JUST a user like you. Since you are so good at explaining things, I\'ll come back in a month from now and see how many posts you have, how many questions you have answered and how much knowledge you really have.
No need to reply, I am unsubscribing to this and will never know what you said ;)

That\'s just about the response I expected. The man (child?) cannot, will not, take correction or advice. He\'s perfect.

As for his advice being understood, I guess he never saw the two posts immediately after his \"help.\"

had he not climbed into his shiny little snit and putt-putted away he might noticed them.

I am familiar with his high-priest, but it what I said had to be said - and more directly - if you are going presume the role of an expert and give instructions, give instruction, not general advice or comments.
