Sure will try uploading the images. I first tried the Gallery within my forum but could not find a URL for the image. I should try an image host.


I need to learn how to include the meta tags :( . I tried from the Admin section but all meta tags started appearing on the header.  :'(


Please don't forget my other questions;


- To remove the help tab from the forum- 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?

Removing the help tab: CreateAForum will need to make a feature to disable it.
Linking Facebook and Twitter profiles: What exactly do you mean by linking it? Do you want the links to their facebook/twitter profiles to show on the user's profiles on your forum?
Linking Linkedin profiles: Just did a quick search and found plugins that Linkedin offers - https://developer.linkedin.com/plugins
All codes I make are tested on the latest version of Google Chrome and upon request of other browsers.

Great guys.....thanks a million!


I have been able to;


- Include the logo
- Linkedin Share button (it would be good to have the code for Like button for facebook too)


By linking facebook and linkedin users should be able to login using their accounts in facebook or linkedin. I tried this from the profile settings but it says wrong domain name >:(


How long would it take to remove the help tab? If it takes long, it would be ideal to keep it but all the references to CAF need to be removed.


I tried to activate the ad locations through ad seller pro.....but the location are not showing anything :(

You can actually log in with accounts from many different services, just click the Login button and below the login fields, there are options to log in with services such as Facebook and Twitter.

I just missed that bcoz I have always been logging in using the login at the top left corner. Will try the other options.


I am all set to launch my forum to a wider audience but need to remove the Help tab from the forum. Please help me with this.


Would need some help with the Ad Seller Pro (can't see the Ad location) which it can be done at a later stage or I can spend more time trying different options. But removing the Help session would really help me at this stage :)


Thanks a lot guys!

For the ad seller pro locations. Make sure you give all the membergroups that you want to have access to them otherwise they will not be shown.

Also you need to an ad to an location for it to appear.

I am very sorry, but, could not see the option to sign in using any of the social media anywhere in my forum  :( . I checked all the possible login options (from top left corner and from the menu bar) but did not see any option to sign in using social media accounts.


In addition, tried the FB Post Topics System under Admin>Configuration>FB Post Topics System>Sign in with your Facebook Account.


But it showed An error occurred. Please try again later[/size][size=78%] [/size]

So I tried Profile>Social Login Merge Account> and clicked on facebook icon....but again I received the message "Failed - Invalid site Domain". So I'm kind of stuck there.




Now moving on to the Ad Seller Pro, there have been some improvements in the results :) 


I was able to test some text ads and everything seems to be fine except that the link takes the user from the forum to the target website (it does not open in a new window or tab). Any solutions?


Should I keep the tab "Advertise" on to see the Ad Locations. I activated the tab once, but now it does not go away when opted out of it!


Most important question of all - how long it may take to remove the help tab from the forum? This is very critical for me.


Apologies for so many questions but I think it will help everyone here.

Social logins currently do not work for custom domain users. Same with the Facbeook,Twitter autoposting topics. But I might fix the last two.

That's really sad!! Is there any chance that we could include the social logins in the future?


How long it may take to remove the "Help" tab? What should be done to open the ads on a different window or tab?


I can't thank you guys enough.

Just noticed that event the ads on this forum takes the user to a different site :-[  You guys should be equally worried if not more! Please find a solution for us ;D


Help tab?? Just waiting on this one to start promoting my forum (sorry to sound very desperate, but I am very eager to see some results after a lot of learning and efforts put into this).

Hello CAF and xboi209,


Could you please give me a hint on the possibilities of removing the Help tab?


If you think you can make it within a few days, I can definitely wait. Please let me know if it would take longer. If that's the case, I will have to go ahead with the tab (I would be greatly disappointed with this as I was expecting a forum that was branded exclusively for me and that's the reason why I chose the unlimited plan :( [size=78%]).  [/size]


In either case, some directions from your side would be greatly appreciated as it would help me to take a final decision on this at the earliest.


Thank you.

Follow directions to hide tabs on your forums: http://support.createaforum.com/5/(code)-hide-tabs-v2/
Note that bots/users with javascript disabled will still be able to see the help tab.

Brilliant.....this will be fine till we have a permanent solution.


Thanks a million guys....you are of great help....it's really appreciated.


From whatever we have discussed here, I have certain suggestions to improve the features. Can I summarise them here or should I post on Suggestions board?


Thanks again.
