Creating An Archive Forum


There are some limits to Runboard.
You can only have a maximum of 20,000 topics per forum. When further topics are posted the oldest topics drop off (Are deleted).

Therefore to prevent losing topics some users (like myself) use archives. Basically its like any other forum where you can store old topics, then when that forum gets to 20,000 topics simply create a new archive forum (Archives 2 etc)

Here is how you create a typical archive forum.

To make an archive forum so no new posts can be made in an archive, users can only view the topics. Goto;
Control Panel > Select Board > Manage > Security Management > Advanced Security Settings > Click Fine Tune 'The Forum'

Set the 'Read' access to 'Require Membership'
Set the 'Write' access to 'Require Membership'
Set the 'Membership Gaining Method' to 'Invite-only membership'.
Then click 'Change Security Preferences'
If there are any users who are not admin/mods that you want to grant access to the private forum you then need to click the 'See Members' button and then type in the users names.

Any topics that you want to put in the archive. Use the moderator options and select the topics then move them to the archive forum.

Creating A Read Only Forum


So you want to create a read only forum that members and guests can read but no new topics/posts can be created. This is how you go about it.

Control Panel > Select Board > Manage > Security Management > Advanced Security Settings > Click Fine Tune 'The Forum'

Set the 'Read' access to Everyone
Set the 'Write' access to 'Require Membership'
Set the 'Membership Gaining Method' to 'Invite-only membership'.
Then click 'Change Security Preferences'

So who do you want to be able to post in the forum?

If there are any users who are not admin/mods that you want to grant posting acess to the read only forum you then need to click the 'See Members' button and then type in the users names.

Change Board Theme/Layout


Once you board has been created you can choose to use one of the pre-defined layouts that Runboard has available thanks to the efforts of some users.

To access the Pre-Defined Theme/Layouts goto;
Control Panel > Select Board > Manage > Change Board Theme/Layout

There are several different colored themes available. A preview is also shown of what each of the predefined themes look like.

Copy it to the custom layout
Insert description here

Do not change the custom layout (if any), just switch to using the new one
