Sep 22, 2012 at 10:01 PM


i have some questions and problems about new version and i cant find any answer in forums and other places.

1- how can users set a signature for theme self's? we called in template [SIGNATURE].

2- i have enabled the vanity url's and when user quick reply to the post nothing shows after that and the page will be just a white page. the page is redirecting to the url with none page name for example the page is http://www.irdnn.ir/forums/Other-Topics/Public-Topics/test/

and after reply the url redirect to http://www.irdnn.ir/Other-Topics/Public-Topics/test/#5 and dont show any thing.

3- can we call the dnn standard tokens in new version? for example the [Profile:city].

4- in the setting of the module is a point system is the way to show users them points in topic view page or other place?

5- I cant add the whats new module of active forum, it is not in the module list and a ActiveForumViewer too.

Since nobody seems to ever chime in here and help out anyone else I will help with what I know. 

To answer question 1:

Go see this discussion:  http://activeforums.codeplex.com/discussions/390081   

That will show you how to set up "my forum settings" for a user in activity feed.  Signatures are there.  Basically you create a child page under "activity feed" and call it whatever but "my forum settings" is what I used.  I made permissions inherit from parent. Place a new instance of active forums on that page.  It will turn into "my forum settings"



Question number 2, you may want to completely uninstall and reinstall the forum.  I had some strange issues the first time around.  After completely uninstalling, downloading AF again just to make sure I have the latest copy, and reinstall, a lot of my issues got fixed.

I believe standard dnn tokens do work. You'll have to just experiment.


I'll be honest with you, I can't really understand what you are asking in 4 and 5, sorry.  The ranking is a system based on how many posts a user has.  You can set titles and levels along with graphics to classify the user as to the number of posts and their level of "expertise" on your forum.  


Hope some of this helped.

thanks for answering my friend.

about the dnn standard tokens i should say you that there are not working in active forum for example. [Profile:city] and another tokens of the user profile tokens
