Newbie, & newbie query

Post by Lankidden » Thu Dec 29, 2011 9:12 am

Hi,
I'm new around here, and I have a newbie query. I run two Forums (Fora?), one is a takeover of a very well established and long running Forum, and the other is a small and very specialised Forum I am setting up for a friend to run alongside his WebSite. After much searching, the Prospace style exactly suits our subject matter, and I would love to go live with it. Unfortunately, search as I might, I cannot find any link to a Users Control Panel so for the time being I am unable to switch to Prospace. My phpBB3 installation is up to date with 3.0.9, so any advice as to where to link to the UCP will be gratefully received. Love the Styles by the way.

Many thanks

Neil Carter

Welcome to LMO :D

To find the user control panel one simply hovers the mouse over the word "user" on the menu bar and a drop down panel should appear with all the necessary controls in there OR alternatively you can click on messages and it will take you there as well.

Knows, I have just enough. Enough to make me content, enough to make me want a little more, but if I don't get it, I'll be OK.

by the sound of it, you downloaded my style from the phpBB.com site. the style member that approved my style made some changes to it without my approval, thus messing up some of it as he didn't understand my menu system. trying as much as i could, they wouldn't fix it... go figure :roll:

anyway, what needs to be done is to download the updated/correct style from here ;)

here's the link to the updated version http://www.livemembersonly.com/viewtopi ... 1281#p1281

Downloaded as per suggestion, and installed on test Forum which can be found here
http://lankidden.com/zonophone/
UN "Ian B" PW "zonophone"
Here is a screen grab, which does not show any UCP link, plus the MCP link under log in name displays neither UCP or MCP.
Where am I going wrong?

Many thanks

Neil

PS what style is being used for this Forum?

you will also need to refresh the cache for the style when replacing a style

refresh the template, imageset, and theme cache and then refresh your browser while on the index page of the site.
