Hello,

We are developing site which having both forum and chat functionality using YAF (Yet Another Forum) version 1.9.5.5. We want features in forum below:

1.Create Multiple Admin Users and each admin user should have their own separate forum and chating functionality

2.The users created by one admin user shouldn't be displayed to other admin user and their related things like posts, private messaging, boards etc.

3.The forums created by one admin user shouldn't be displayed or accessible to other admin user.

4.Let me clarify if we create multiple admin user then is it necessary to create a copy of files and folder as per each admin user.
e.g.
1) adminuser1 (~/website/forum/adminuser1/yaf)
2) adminuser2 (~/website/forum/adminuser2/yaf)
Or each we need to have a separate database as per separate user.

Can anyone confirm, if its possible to have multiple forums like we expect above ? any examples will be greatly appreciated

Regards

YAF supports multiple "boards" -- or sets of forums... You might look into using the "BoardID" features/settings.

Hi squirrel,

I will check and get back to you, hopefully that answers my other queries related to multiple forum's separate administrators i.e. atleast 1 administrator for each such boards.

thanks again.

Hello,

I am using YAF Version 1.9.5.5. I have created default board called : board1 & its admin user called admin1.

I have also created two more boards listed below with their respective admin user
e.g.
board2 having admin user : board2admin
board3 having admin user : board3admin

but when I login with either board2admin or board3admin it still shows board1. I think it should show board2 or board3. Please let me know is there any other setting that should be made for boards.

can anyone help me figure out what might be going wrong ?

Inside default.aspx in the YAF root is the following line:
<YAF:Forum runat="server" ID="forum" BoardID="1">
This is where you change the 'BoardID' of the currently running forum. You would set this, then load the forum and be able to make changes to the board you have assigned in the file. A more experienced developer would have to tell you if you could create a file called board1.aspx and set it in there, then reference that address "http://yoursite.com/YAF/board1.aspx" to load BoardID 1 and so on.

This goes beyond my experience -- just trying to point you in the right direction --
