I'm trying to set up this forum on a GoDaddy site for a community group. We want it to be private, so I've set the Guest user setting with no rights at all, but I can't get the registration to work right.

1) What are the correct email settings so that emails can be sent for registration confirmation?

2) How can I register users even if I haven't received an email? (And don't tell me to go into the Admin, click on Users, and set them up... it does NOT even work, so just don't bother going there.)

3) Why is this so incredibly un-friendly???

4) Oh... I'd also like to add that there is no way to change the base graphic layout. I have no interest in downloading all the source and screwing with it just for a facelift. It should be a lot easier than that.

I'm not sure YAF is for you. YAF is an open source all volunteer community. Respectful, considerate and mature communication only.

If you do want to continue with YAF, all of your questions have been answered before. Please try a search.

I also have my site setup with godaddy. I used the relay-hosting.secureserver.net. it works for me. good luck

Because of all the thousands of people that use YAF, not one has taken the time to write a comphrehensive FAQ after they've figured it out.

Will you be the first?

Honestly?

I might have, if not for the smarmy, unhelpful answer from the moderator/chief architect.

I did, in fact, figure out what I needed.

Perhaps, in spite of the nastiness and lack of concern from that person, I will try to help out other users. Because it's obvious that person isn't helping.

Well, at least your offer to help is a step in the right direction...

Relax, and be a tad more polite! You'll get farther!
