General Discussion / Re: Halloween Approaches!
« on: October 18, 2019, 08:34:52 pm »
Hey Browman, welcome to the SMFNew support forum! :) I don't have any specific plans here aside from going to local fall festivals and such. Also, my brother, dad and I are probably going to go old school and play Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory like we used to around the holidays. One fan-made map, called Resurrection, is perfect for Halloween and is sort of a tradition for us haha

I agree, forums have really taken a back seat to social media and Reddit these days so that kind of growth is insane! I suppose it's a credit to the uniqueness of a word game forum. Very nice!

Hi MixeR, welcome to SMFNew! Keep in mind that our team answers in English and we use translation tools to understand your inquiry, so we apologize if we misunderstand what you were asking. To add to what has already been said, we don't allow custom images for membergroups but we have a plethora of images you can use on your forum.

Thanks for getting in contact!

PS: In the future, please use our Support board for any help you need with our service.

Yes, in the future, please list your forum URL in every support thread as listed in the Support Rules thread. Just to be clear, you're wanting to edit your meta keywords, correct? Typically, editing meta keywords requires you to edit a PHP file which we don't allow with SMFNew, but it is strange that the field you show in the video isn't saving.

If that's not what you were wanting to do, perhaps what you're looking for is the site slogan? It enables a bit of text in the top right-hand corner of your forum (where the "SimpleMachines Forum" logo is on this support forum). If that's what you're looking for, navigate to Admin > Layout Settings > "Site slogan:" and enter whatever text you'd like to enter; images and links will work if you use HTML. Save your changes and you should be good to go.

As always, feel free to let us know if your issue hasn't been solved!

This board is for you all to let loose and have a bit of fun. However, that doesn't mean the rules don't apply here. If you need to re-read the rules, follow this link. In general, just keep it respectful.

And yes, "See how many times we can post in this topic!" and one-word post games are considered to be spam. Don't post canned meat, that's not cool.

Support / [OFFICIAL] Support Rules

Hello valued user! In order to keep things peaceful and orderly on this forum, we ask that all of our users abide by this small set of rules. Failure to do so will result in disciplinary action at the discretion of our site team. Thank you for your cooperation!

  • HAVE A MEANINGFUL TITLE: Ensure that your thread has a title that states the general issue you're having. This aids in our response time.
  • POST YOUR FORUM LINK: When you create a topic in our Support board, please include a link to the forum you need help with. Without a link, it's difficult for us to offer help in most cases.
  • BE AS INFORMATIVE AS POSSIBLE: When making a support thread in this board, please offer us as much information about the issue as possible. This allows us to help you solve the problem as quickly and efficiently as possible.
  • MARK YOUR TOPIC AS SOLVED: When our support staff have given you a response that fixes the issue you were having, please mark your topic as Solved by selecting the button near the bottom of your thread. This is very helpful for us as it lets us know that we've done our job effectively.
  • BE RESPECTFUL (AND PATIENT): Our support team is a fully voluntary initiative; we have jobs and duties outside of this service. We offer our time to help you and ensure that you have the best experience you can while using SMFNew. Likewise, many of our users do the same thing despite not being an official part of the SMFNew team. Please do not be rude toward anyone in your support threads. We understand that some issues can be very frustrating but be patient! We'll get to the bottom of the problem and work together to solve it!

Thank you for taking the time to read these rules. We look forward to helping you!
-The SMFNew Team

Hi there! Welcome to SMFNew! :) My apologies for the wait for a response, I've been on a hiatus for a bit. For future reference, please post in the Support board for any future support questions. Now, on to your question.

Unfortunately, we cannot answer support questions for Google's services since we're not affiliated with them. However, if you need help with indexing, the Webmaster FAQ is a great place to start. If I misunderstood what you were asking, I apologize and we'd be glad to help if you're having trouble with our service.

Once again, thank you for choosing SMFNew! We hope you enjoy your time using our service!

The Style Manager allows you to modify the CSS of the default theme for SMF. On the main page of the Style Manager, you'll see a selection of premade styles you can use (which you can use as a starting point for making your own style) or you can just create one from scratch by navigating to the Create Style tab.

Uploading custom themes currently isn't supported on SMFNew but the Style Manager offers a very significant amount of customization options so that you can truly personalize your forum to your liking. If you're not familiar with CSS and how it works, check out W3Schools to learn more. They also have tutorials for other things in web development, including HTML, JavaScript, databases (SQL) and more.

I hope that helps! :)

I know this sounds condescending but that's not my intention: are you sure you hit the "Save Settings" bar after filling out each tab's info?

Support / Re: Forum tab

You have to give the tab a title (which will display on the tab itself) and use the URL field to direct the tab to the link you specify. Do you mean that you tried filling out those fields but nothing happened?

Could you take a screenshot of your settings for the custom tab?

Did you try the custom tabs feature? It allows you to customize your custom tabs quite a bit.

Banned for not showing it. Lol I have more of one now, that was when I just had my moustache starting, and I had my goatee for a few years at that point; now I have a chinstrap beard that I modeled after a combination of Qui-Gon from Star Wars and Shane Ochsner from one of my favorite bands, Hands:

Banned because I haven't paid attention to sports a day in my life. 8) Lol I like watching baseball but I don't watch regularly, I think the last time I watched a game was maybe 4 or 5 years ago.
