Here is how to set up your PHPBBFM Forum after it is installed Via FTPUnder Forums
all should be left as is, unless you want change some default settings, go right ahead, but its not recommended
you would start by creating a new category and all the forums you want to set up. This being PHPBBFM you need to see all that it offers when creating a new forum, like Forum Category
which is in what category the new forum will be placed; And if you set up a Money Mod, you should see at the bottom Allow [FORUM MONEY NAME] to be earned in this forum
and you can choose if they can earn Forum Money from that specific forum.
you can set up the permissions of that forum, to see what permissions are and how to set them up Please read this article
All other things should be left as is, but you need to check them all because most of them is to your liking. Under General
In Site Name
Put in the name of your site. Example, Forum Blog. Also under Site Name there is the Site Description
and what you put there will appear Under the Site Name.
In the Account Activation
its really up to you, if your setting up a private forum then you should set it up to Admin
that way you will get an e-mail when a member joins and you manually activate their account. As of User
its up to you, although I would choose Disabed
because most users get discouraged when they have to go to their in-box to activate their account. I know I do.
In Enable Visual Confirmation
you should activate it, that streams away Bots like advertising bots which post in several forums about the assinged site, also streams away bots like the Google, Yahoo and MSN Bots, that join the site to more informations out of it, you might say that that is good, but its not, because they don't index you less or more even if they join. So that should be enabled.
Other parts should be left in Default or are up to you.
