  • Eliana Tamerin: That may have faded away now, or gotten better. I hope so. I see a lot of happy phpBB users, so I have to imagine someone is having success.
    April 25, 2016, 12:48:06 am
  • Eliana Tamerin: @andy, the phpBB folks had (at one point, not sure how it is now) a specific set of rules you had to follow to get support. Anyone not found doing so would have their topic ignored.

  • andy: SP team is a breath of fresh air...
    April 24, 2016, 11:24:32 pm
  • andy: Yes they are difficult to deal with at SMF. I never experienced anybody like that at phpbb several years ago.
    April 24, 2016, 11:24:03 pm
  • Maizono: Their team is very antagonistic and I prefer this forum and this staff far more. So kudos to SP for doing it right.

  • andy: When SMF went gold there was a lot of optimism about progress and talk of 3.0.  Five years on and that soulds like SF.
    April 24, 2016, 08:37:31 pm
  • andy: Just my frustration at the slow pace of SMF. I suppose we have an alternative now.
    April 24, 2016, 08:34:38 pm
  • Burke Knight: Andy, as long as the SMF team keeps like they are doing, there's always going to be bugs, mainly due to SMF issues, because the team can't get their stuff straight.

It looks to me like the News block is active.

To disable the block.

Admin >> Simple Portal >> Blocks >> Block List

Look for the News Block.

Your welcome.

BTW I'm UK too.

The modify button is on the right of the disable button.

Follow the directions I gave ya and you will find it.

The thing to remember when starting a forum from fresh is "Not to rush and take it steady."

Oh really?! :D

And yeah, I quested that ive rushed it abit, the part im struggleing with most is organizeing the categorys correctly and that, so its all easy to navagate, and so people know where to post for each subject :/ its hard than i thought...

and i did follow your instructions, but theres no option to change what it says, only the name of it? :/ i would show you an image but it wont allow mt to post one

OK if you go into the block list again as before.

On the right hand side you should see the word Action

There should be 4 images below this.

a green ( or red) button. active if green.

A spanner = Modify

4 arrows = Move

and finally the delete button.

I'm willing to have a look if you like to grant a temp admin.

Before you do what does the error log say?
