iPage still says "The Email for freezonesreview.com does not currently route here. New domains can take 24-48 hours to become fully functional. If it's not a new domain, you may need to update your MX Records or Name Servers for your mail to route to our servers."

Waiting for it to get updated :-(

JUst had a word with iPage support.....there seems to be a problem with the MX Records. They suggest that it might not be set correct.


Could you please look into this? The domain is www.freezonesreview.com and the MX record is mx.ipage.com.


By the way, my forum is almost live now at www.freezonesreview.com (Thanks a lot for your support for this). Need to have some final touches. It would be up and running once the MX records and the emails are set.


Thank you.

Hello,


I would need assistance with the following for a quick launch of the forum;


- Set the mx records
- Upgrade the forum (not sure how this works now as the URLs have already been changed).


Could you please advise?


Thank you.

1. Fixed. Issue was when you change the url in the domain manager overwrote the mx record that i added. Have now set the dns to read only for your domain.

2. What do you mean by upgrade forum?

Thanks a lot!!


I wish to upgrade the package on CAF to unlimited Ad free page views. When I click on "upgrade" at the bottom of the page, it takes me to "http://www.freezonesreview.com/upgrades.php".


But since the URL of the forum has been modified, I am concerned if this would work properly. Could you please advise?


Thanks again for all your efforts.

GOOD NEWS.....the email is working fine now!!


All that remains is taking the advertisements out of the web pages and put my own branding (upgrading to a higher plan with CAF). How do I do this?


Thanks a lot :)

For the url on the upgrades page only enter

freezonereviewforum


And then you should be set to go. It based on your old subdomain name.

Slowly but steadily I am moving towards my goal! The forum has been upgraded and email account has been created.


Now I have a completely different problem and I think it would be the biggest concern that I have for my forum.


I did a quick search in Google for "Site: freezonereview.com"


The title of the first result was "Create a Forum User Help[/color][/size]"[/color][/size][/color]
[/size]I seriously do not want this tab in my forum. I though I was able to get all these things out when I upgraded.



[/size]But if this is the first page that appears in search results, then it would be a disaster. Could you please help me with this?

[/size]I would rather need SEO friendly pages.

[/size]Thank you so much in anticipation.

freezonereview.com is new has no rankings yet those take time to build.
I could add an option to remove the help tab.

I would really appreciate that :)


Sure, I understand it would take time to build the rankings and traffic. I am trying to learn some basics towards achieving this and would need a lot of assistance from you guys!


Please guide me if you have any literature or step by step guidance for SEO in these forums.


Another question is how to give permission for guests to view certain boards only?

Well....sorted the permission question :)


Please help me with the following;

- FB and Twitter Account settings - how to link the facbook and twitter profiles with the forum
- Do you have an option to link Linkedin profile with the forum?
- What can be done to optimize the forum for search engines?


Thanks a lot as always!

Apologies in advance for asking so many questions that are very basic....


I have been trying to include a logo into the Forum (using the header). But where do I upload the image first to get the URL?

For this part you would need to find a free image host to upload the file to. Or you can host inside our gallery system and get the url from that.

Meta Tags are one of the few ways for you to optimize your forum for search engines on CreateAForum.
All codes I make are tested on the latest version of Google Chrome and upon request of other browsers.
