Problem with forum view


(Marco) #1

I have a problem…
When a new user subscribe to the forum, he cannot view any category even if he click on the tab…
This forum is actually empty, but i think that everyone should be able to view the categories…


Can't delete the "about this category" topics

Did you create descriptions for each Category? They were probably the topics you were attempting to delete but couldn’t.

Yes, I have entered the required settings when creating a category.

That doesn’t seem right, I believe that is a topic template, not the category description. Category Description should be a button under Generale

Yes “Modello di argomento” == “Model topic”

Change default view to categories instead of latest.

This is done by ordering categories to be the first button.

So if i don’t manage descriptions when a new category is created, a new user will not view anything?

Until it is edited, it is considered an “empty” post.
That is, the text you see as an Admin telling you to edit it is like a template place-holder and doesn’t count as text.

It will not show in Latest because the category has no latest post.
It will not show in Categories (for users) because until the About description exists the Category creation process is not complete and so the Category does not exist yet.

If you had trouble understanding the “edit this post” message, can you offer a suggestion on how to make it clearer? i.e. what changes to this would you suggest?

[Replace this first paragraph with a short description of your new category. This guidance will appear in the category selection area, so try to keep it below 200 characters. Until you edit this text or create topics, this category won’t appear on the categories page.]

Use the following paragraphs for a longer description, as well as to establish any category guidelines or rules.

Some things to consider in any discussion replies below:

What is this category for? Why should people select this category for their topic?
How is this different than the other categories we already have?
Do we need this category?
Should we merge this with another category, or split it into more categories?
