How do I activate a Message Forum page on our class creator site? The only option I am seeing is for Admin Forum. I would like to set up a "bulletin board" accessible by all registered classmates. Can that be done. Does it need to be manually added by classcreator?

Thanks in Advance,

Harry Burnette

The options for Message Forum and User Forum are at the very bottom of your Edit Site Pages screen and are currently deactivated.

Thanks, Kyle. I see both options now, but when I try to View Page on the User Forum, I get a blank white screen. I have tried with both Safari and Chrome. Any thoughts? I was able to use the messaging forum, but I wanted to try out both.

Thanks,

Harry

Please give step-by-step instructions. What I tried worked fine for me (Firefox on a PC). Here is what I tried...
Edit SIte Pages
Mouse over "User Forums", click Preview
A list of forums comes up, I click the link saying "Conversation Starter" and I see your post, "What are some of your fondest memories from our high school years, both in and out of school?"

It was the edit pages button (vs preview) that was giving me the white screen. I also see that it is reporting 2 topics, but I only started 1.

I can recreate what you are reporting. I will talk to the programmer.

We have a Message Forum that was used for comments from our 50th reunion. I would like to do the same for our 57th reunion. Is there a way to start a new message forum or copy this page to another forum or do I have to use the same page and delete all of the old comments?

I can ask if the programmer can clear your existing forum located here: http://www.ephs61.com/class_forum.cfm - please confirm... once this data has been deleted, there will be no recovering it... it will be gone.

I guess this means that I cannot start a new message forum but have to use the same page and revise it. I can delete each message, rename the forum and start with a new one. No need to have the programmer do that for me. I copied the messages to a Word file and can save them that way.
Thanks,
Jim

So again, the message I was trying to communicate, is that I can have the programmer clear all of the posts from that message for him for you by removing them from the database. That will leave you with a brand new message for him that is empty and ready to start anew. Would you like me to proceed?

No, I'm good. No need to delete anything. What will be on there now will be any new comments I deleted them already and have started a new forum. I also edited the message for the current forum.

I don't know if my deleting them deletes them from the database or not but they don't show up on the forum anymore.
Thanks,
Jim

Is it possible to have two forums active at the same time? I would like to have one dedicated to the vets in our multiyear (the 60s decade) site, where (on the honor system) they could share things among themselves).

I think the answer is no..., but wanted to ask.

There can only be one Message Forum but you can create as many User Forums as you want in your http://www.whs60s.org/class_forums.cfm Page.

Are the admin forum for all classmages, or just administrators? Can I have a link on a seperate page, or does it need to go in the left panel?

Am trying to have a forum just for classmates that are veterans. Maybe not password protected (that would be nice) but maybe in a location only advertised to them.

Just admins. You could add a specific topic that is password protected that you only distribute the password to the veterans. But that would be in your class forums.

On your site, you call it Wolf Chatter+ 'other' obits.

Kyle,
When I go to the bottom of my Edit Site Pages page, I do not see either Message Forum or User Forum.
Doing something wrong?
Thanks, and appreciate any guidance you can provide.
