So I installed YAF succesfully on my Server 2008 VPS, DNN 7.0.4.

The first board I created works fine and has the Admin and Host links up top.

None of the secondary boards have the Host link which is not a big deal (yes, 'Host Admin' is checked under Host-Users, also 'Administrators' under User Roles).

The new boards I added they all have an Admin link up top at first, but as soon as I reboot my server the Admin link is GONE!!!

Searched google and the support forums here to no avail.

Please help me!

TIA,

Rob

The Admin links are back now!

I think the solution was to log in to the server via RDC after the reboot.

Currently there is no Host User created when a new Board is created, this is fixed in the next release.

For the Admin Link, when you created a new Board do you choose a different Admin User? The YAF DNN Module syncs the user groups between the dnn user roles and yaf user roles.

Is the YAF Admin user, part of the DNN Administrator Role?

'For the Admin Link, when you created a new Board do you choose a different Admin User?'

- no, because I was hoping it'll pick up the dnn host user account I was logged in to; also it said: 'Only required when creating a board using a new & different membership application name.' - so I wasn't sure, didn't wanted to mess up anything,, should I try and create a board with a new Admin user?

'Is the YAF Admin user, part of the DNN Administrator Role?'

- it is on the main portal, where I created the first Board, but that host user doesn't show up on the other domains/boards and didn't wanted to sync up users because I think that'd merge all users from all domains and I don't wan't that. If I log in with a dnn admin user the Admin link comes back but not the Host link.

How do I get the Host link back for my secondary boards?

Thanks Watcha!

  1. Under Admin (YAF) - Users and Roles -> Users

  3. On the Edit User Page you need to check the Option "Host Admin"

Also tried to create a new board with a new Admin user, but it won't let me, it says Access Denied..

Thanks,

Rob

    where u.Name = 'UserName'

Replace UserName with the actually username. there should be two equal results.

Thanks Watcha, here's my results:

For the first board I created that has the Host link and I used the built in DNN host account:

RowNumber,Flags

"1","67"

"2","2"

"3","2"

"4","2"

For the second board that has no Host link and I used a DNN admin account that is also checked in YAF as 'Host Admin':

RowNumber,Flags

"1","66"

"2","2"

"3","2"

For the 3rd board that has no Host link and I used another DNN admin account that is also checked in YAF as 'Host Admin':

RowNumber,Flags

"1","66"

"2","11"

"3","2"

Now what?

.

After that you need to restart the Application.

That worked like a charm Watcha thank you!!!

Now the only link I'm missing is the 'Moderate' one from the first board I created.. all the secondary boards have Admin/Host/Moderate, the first one only has Admin/Host.

Any magic trick for this one?
