Good evening from Melbourne, Australia.

To create a new forum I go to the Admin Control Panel.

Then, under "Forum Management" I select "Category & Forum Management".

In the table which appears at the bottom, in the colum labelled "Category Name" I find the Category under which I want to create a new Forum.

In the column labelled "Action" I click on "[Edit Forums]"

I'm now at a page labelled "Editing forums for [Name of Category]".

Many of the items listed have default values.

For example ...

Moderated Forum = No
Can moderator(s) bypass attachment limits = No
Notify moderator(s) of all new messages: = No

Here is my question: How can I alter the message board settings so that the default values are permanently different?

For instance, so that all the above "No" values will always default to "Yes" values whenever I create a new forum?

Thanks for any assistance with this. Smile

These settings don't have any defaults per-say, so you can't set them I'm afraid.

Thanks for the clarification Ilia. No problem. It's easy and fast to set the required values, anyway. Smile
