View Full Version : How do I get Admin screen as per manual?
November 8th, 2005, 04:44 AM
Photpost is installed and I can get into /index and login as Administrator. But once in, I don't get the screen as per the manual which would enable me to set up other users and establish categories.
If it helps, the screen I get to has blue menu's (whereas I notice in the manual the screen I want has red menu's).
Please point me in the right direction.

Ensure you are logged in and using the admin login
You should have an admin link on the menubar of Photopost near home

Yep I have that and can get in but once in it looks nothing like the manual (again, blue menu rather than red) and no ability to add users or set categories.

What links do you see on the left sidebar of admin?
What integration did you choose?
If your integrating with a forum you can't add users in photopost admin thats up to your forum. When logged in as admin you should have a whole mess of links there and there is on the left side an EDIT CATEGORIES link

Okay, we are getting somewhere - yes there is Edit Category and I can see how to fiddle with these although a bit stumped on how to start a completely new category rather than a sub category.
Still can't see how to create new users. I can see user groups but how I do I set up the initial users?
The manual doesn't seem to tally up at all with what I'm seeing. Is there another one somewhere that relates to the current version of PhotoPost you are installing? If there's a thorough manual somewhere I could stop bothering you.

To add a new category it says ADD TOP LEVEL CATEGORY
As stated if your integrating with a forum there is no user management via photopost. That would fall upon your forum.
If your doing a standalone there is an edit users link in photopost. You can add a user by hitting register on the photopost menubar

Thanks Chuck - what are you doing working at 5am? Impressive service. (I'm on the other side of the world so the time here is far more sensible!)
I've got the catalogues working a dream!
Users however has still got me stumped. I've got "Edit Users" but when in there it's trying to search for a user rather than giving me the chance to create any. No "register" option as you refered to.

Sorry, just to clarify, no forum unless that's something you set up when you installed.

Register option is on the main photopost page there is no behind the scenes register option
