Post 3+ Months Ago

Okay, I have a Proboard, although I'm thinking of changing to another type of board that is hosted on my site.

What I want to do is change the URL that the link for the Board will go.

Example: I have a board on my forum specifically for Fan Art and another for Fanfics. I want to direct the person who clicks on the link that takes them to the board to instead go to a gallery where they can upload their images in the Fan Art section and others can comment on their work, and I want the Fanfic board link to instead direct them to a place where they can write their fanfics and others can comment on them.
I have the 4images Gallery, and I have a fanfiction script which I am going to upload to my site. That's where I want these links to be directed.

Can anyone help?


Another question.

I also have a Movable Type blog along with a script for posting news. I want to enable my visitors to login one time in order to be able to comment on my blog and upload their images and post their fanfics and comment on people's work.

Basically, each of these codes requires people to login to do things. I don't want my visitors to have to have multiple usernames and passwords except for the forum. I want people to be able to login in in one place and be logged in at all of the places that require it without having to register and log in for the different places and stay logged in for a while even if they click on a link.

I was thinking that I could probably do this by assigning the same MySQL database to all of them, but I think there has to be more than that.

I know these are complicated questions, but I hope you can help me.

Hello June.
:D

To redirect to another page on your site go to--> ACP-->cat and forums-->scroll down to url redirect--switch on redirect--yes-->put in address to redirect to.

I like Invision board, this one is phbb...both free--i think !!

hopefully someone else can help with the other question as i am just learning about boards.

Hope i have been of some help June.
:wink:

Well, I looked at my administration options; and I don't see anything in there like that. Maybe I should ask this question elsewhere; but, if I decide to use a script for my board instead of Proboards, your info will probably help. Thanks.

Is there anyone who can help me with my other question? It's not a question about a board. I just want my visitors to only have to register once for all of the different options and stay logged in for a period of time even if they click on a different link.


By the way, which board do you prefer? Invision, phpBB, or YaBBSE?

If OZZU can't help, go to flash-x from my sig, he knows the ins and outs on boards.

I would..if i won the lottery.. lol go over to vb board, but that one comes heavy for me on price, my next choice is the one i have..invision 1.3, i'm really getting to know it now...actually flash put that one on his server for me and has been a great help...skinned it too.

:dance:

The lottery June is something we have here and in Canada, America, i don't know where you are from, don't they have a lottery draw there. ??

You pick 6 numbers and hope that your numbers come up and win you loads of money lolol, someone in my town once won £17 million then retreated to somewhere in Pakistan, he was'nt supposed to gamble, religeon rules or something, he was never heard of again..
:!:

VB board is very expensive, no free boards at all, very nice though !
Seeflash if you need more help June!

I'm living in the States (most of the time), but I saw that there was something called the Lottery at the top of the page. I doubted it had anything to do with the lotteries the States run, but I didn't know what it was. I thought that was what you were referring to, and I was hoping you would explain.

Sorry for the confusion. You must live in England if you are using the pound sign.

I'll see Flash, but what's so great about vB Boards? What does it have that's better?

Thanks for the help. :D

Hey, nice to see you posting again. I've been pretty busy. I'm getting hosting right now and am currently working on the images for my site. (I can be somewhat of a perfectionist at times. :oops:) My last host had problems. :roll:

I can relate to computer problems. We had to take our computer in numerous times. :roll: We had a warranty, but the people working there weren't exactly knowledgeable. :roll: So we had to get a new computer a year ago. This one still has it's problems though.

Okay, thanks for looking for one. :D

Hey, thanks for the link. It looks like an interesting board. I tried out the admin demo. It really does have a lot of features; but, like you said, it really takes a hit on your pocket book. :)

You'll be gone for a while? Oh okay. I'll "see" you when you can return. :D

Thanks!

June hi,
No i won't be gone for a while lololol i only just got back :mrgreen:
Yesterday was the first day i managed to look at my board properly, i was busy with 2000 porn e-mails..ARRRRRGH... the sh** these people send out, should be a law against it !!
Anyway i rang my isp to delete the e-mail account, i was annoyed as i had had the addy for a year or so but now they have ruined it for me, so after doing that i looked at my board in detail, to my horror there was loads of stuff missing in topics :x
It would seem the board is set so things vanish if you don't use the board for 30 days, well its been 60 days due to no machine, i put it offline till i found out why this had happened, flash has now returned my topics, remember its its space i share so maybe he thought not using it would be a security issue for him, thats why i said i would'nt be around lol it was off-line, now its not.
So write woman lol i'll be here.
byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee June... :)

Okay, I guess I misunderstood. Uh...This isn't considered spamming is it? Cause we aren't exactly staying on topic..... :oops:

Well, I hope you get your new board figured out. I have to wait two weeks before I can get hosting on the site I chose. Oh well, more time to work on the images for my site.

Spam. That seems to be a problem for a lot of people. My mail account has yet to receive any porn spams, thankfully; but I do get advertisements for products. Those aren't so bad though. People do have to have jobs.
I think there is a law against it somewhere. Wait, that's in the States. You live in England. (An old ballet teacher of mine moved there. The British people tend to be very nice. It's funny, 200 years ago everyone would laugh at the very idea of the States and Britain even being on good terms. Now our countries are like two peas in a pod. :D)
Hmmm. Which laws apply? If you get porn spam from someone in the States, are they under American law or under whatever British law there might be? Weird.

Yeah, we don't want to get kicked off. :oops:

I haven't been looking at too much on this site lately. I don't have hosting at the moment; so it's kind of hard to have a problem when I can't attempt anything yet. I seem to have set up a watch this thread thing. It sends me an e-mail whenever someone replies to this thread.

Well, I don't have an address yet since my host has to buy another server before I can sign on. I like the features on that host though. I have to wait a couple of weeks before I can get hosting.

I plan on making it into a site for animated TV shows and films, particularly Disney films. Gotta love those :lol: . I also like art. So I'm putting in a plug for my art. :wink: :D Of course, I have to allow some participation for the visitors. So I'm setting up a gallery they can upload art to and a place for them to post fanfiction as well as a forum of my own. (Not vbulletin, though. Too expensive :cry: . :D )


I wish you well with your board. :D
