I have a new member that can't post on BOTB


I had a new member of the Brotherhood Of The Bat contact me saying he joined the board on 9/11 but can't post or reply to threads. His user name is Doh2. He isn't showing up as a new member (last new member that I show as joined signed up on 6/2/16. He's getting this message,

 The reason is you don't have access to the board.
You must be a member of this board in order to write.
The membership is attained on a writing a single message basis.

If he can't post then how can he "write a single message" to become a member?

I know the last administrator of my board had closed the board to new members but when I took over I undid that (otherwise the other guy couldn't have joined in June). Any ideas? Feel free to look at my control panel to see if I have something set incorrectly. If one of you needs it I'll gladly grant you Admin privileges so you can help me fix this problem. Just LMK. We're going into that time of year when a lot of new members show up based on what our board is geared to.

Thanks in advance

Ed

Re:


He definitely made an account. I just checked that out. He made it early on the 12th, which was probably the 11th his time.

I am going to try to post on your board, using my dog's account, since I am a member there. I want to see exactly what message I get.

You are so right! That is the exact message I got.

Under Security Management, Advance Security Settings, your setting should be like this:

Which forum is he trying to post in? Perhaps it's a problem with one of the forums, and not the whole board?


Nevermind. I just realized it says 'board' and not 'forum' in the 'denied access' comment.

Re:


I was starting broader, before narrowing it down. I tried to post on "Off Topic Area", first, and then tried a couple others. I always got "The reason is you don't have access to the board."

Hi, Ed.

No, he is not a member of BotB yet. He created a Runboard account, and believes this automatically makes him a member of BotB.

Exactly. Your "write" access is currently set to "Require membership".

Logged in user = Anyone who is logged in to a Runboard account.

Require membership = Board members only.

If you want one post to grant someone membership to BotB, you need to change the "write" access to "logged in users", like Susa's screen shot shows.

Yeah. I did that as well, and that's when I realized it said "board" and not "forum."

Thank you all, I just made that change so I will email him and tell him to try again. Hopefully that took care of it.

I'll let you know (either way).

Again, thanks, you all are always so helpful.

You can also go ahead and add him yourself, if you'd like. *shrugs*
