Hello,

I am using YAF integrated with my current site and have almost everything working excpet one issue... so far!!

When I log in as Admin, 3 areas give me this message: 'You tried to enter an area where you didn't have access.' The areas are, 'Host settings', 'Boards', and 'DB Maintenance.'

Anyone have an idea what could be causing this?

Thanks for any help

I believe those area's are for Host Admin only.

You can grant the user Host Admin access by checking the Host Admin checkbox in there User Details.

You must be signed in as a Host admin to check the checkbox.

Thanks for the info, however I have two problems:

1) I do not think any of my accounts can sign in as Host Admin

2) I logged in and cannot find a check box for Host Admin anywhere

Would you be able to tell me where the check box is located?

Thanks

Can you log in with account when you installed forum ? this is the host admin account.

Unless you chose to use an existing user then the host admin flag was probably not set.

You can access the YAF User table in the database an locate the user you

want as host admin and change the FLAGS column to a 3 it is probably a 2.

This will change the user to a host admin.

Logan,

Thank you, thank you!!!

Changing the FLAGS column worked and now I can access all the options.

I do have a couple other smal questions:

1) I have two users that are not in my ASPNet membership page, but do appear in the users in YAF... I cannot delete them from the YAF admin... Can I just delete the user from the yaf_User table? If I can, is there any other table I need to watch out for?

2) General question... I have attempted to integrate into the asp membership from my existing site. Can I add users from either .net config, or yaf and are the users supposed to be in both places... yaf and my aspnet_Membership tables?

3) When I click on Roles in yaf, I get the following error:

Compiler Error Message: CS0117: 'object' does not contain a definition for 'BinaryAnd'

Source Error:

Line 86:

Line 87:

Line 88: <%# this.Eval( "Flags" ).BinaryAnd(2) %>

Line 89:

Line 90:

Source File: e:\clnts\members.mycitybaby.com\Forum\pages\admin\groups.ascx Line: 88

I am not sure I have everything correct to integrate my membership with yaf.

Thanks again
