Create a Forum in a different group

Step 1

  • Choose your forum name, lets call it "MyForum" , which will be the name of a new wiki group.
  • Open Forum.php, change 'Forum.*' in the line with $FoxPagePermissions to 'MyForum.*'
    $FoxPagePermissions['MyForum.*'] = 'all';
  • Save the file under the name MyForum.php in your local/ directory.

Without page permissions being set for the new forum group, the page copy process of step 2 will fail!

Step 2

  • Enter the new forum name into the box below, add the accesscode, and press "Create".
  • You will see Fox messages to show if pages are created correctly.
  • If the page permissions were set correctly in step 1 a new forum group will be created,
    and you can go to the new Forum index page and start creating new topics straight away.
  • If there was a problem with page creation, check if the $FoxPagePermission set in config.php
    allow 'copy' and 'add' to the new forum group.
  • If you see plain markup directives below, and not just a form, then fox.php is not installed
    in config.php and cannot operate from this FoxTemplates group.

Enter Forum Group Name:
Enter value 7642 <- Have you entered the code number?
Create new Forum:

Step 3

  • Change display configurations for the new forum from the page ForumConfig.
