Hi,

Installed JForum with mysql quite easily. I need help with the following:

1) I did manual installation. How do I change the Admin password? Default password is encrypted in the db table.

2) If I create a category in the General group, how do we add forums to this category or delete this category? As of now, except the Admin user, I haven't created any other users. Since I log in as Admin, I don't see any categories in the General group and forums in those categories.

Thanks,
-- MH

For 1) Go into the Admin Console to change the Admin password (or users)

For 2) You have to explicitly grant permissions for each Forum/Category to every group you want to have access. BE SURE TO INCLUDE THE ADMIN GROUP TOO.

Thanks for the reply. I realized that I could add users to other groups, so they are not restricted to the group in which they are initially created.

Further, I want to know:

How do I disallow postings by Anonymous user?

I see that in SystemGlobals.properties, there are settings for LDAP & Microsoft AD. If I fill in the values of my AD, will the lookup work?

Thanks,
