Enabling The Server's Self Signup Feature:

Post-A-Board comes with a set of "Self Signup" Web pages that enable you, as Adminstrator, to give potential Message Board Managers the ability of signing up for their own message boards, a process which relieves you of the job of creating message boards.

To enable the Self Signup feature, click the "Enable Self Signup" check box so that it is checked, as shown below:

You can view the Self Signup pages by clicking the "View' button.

The Self Signup pages are basic forms that will allow the Manager to specify the type of board he or she wants, as well as other items that would normally be specified by the Administrator when the "New Board" button is clicked.

Link the Self Signup page to your Web site, so visitors can come and read about Post-A-Board, then sign up for a board themselves if they wish.

By clicking "Self Signup Configuration" on the Administration Control Panel, you can choose to display your own Title Image and Title Text on these pages, as well as specify a return link that will take visitors back to your main Web site.

Setting The Price Schedule For Message Boards:

  • Enter the monthly fee you wish to charge for the two types of pay Message Boards, boards with no advertising and boards whose Managers can put up their own advertisements or announcements.

    When you have made the changes you want, click the Apply Changes button to implement them.

 
Setting Title and Title Image:

  • Title Image: Enter the full URL to the image you want to display as the Title Image at the top of your message board. Alternatively, you can put the image in the Post-A-Board "\boardweb" folder on your hard drive, and enter only "/titleimage.gif", where "titleimage" should be the name of the actual image file.

  • Title Text: Enter the message board Title here.

  • Show Image Only Check Box: If this box is checked when you click the Apply Changes button, only the Title Image will be displayed on your message board, the Title Text will be ignored.

    When you have made the changes you want, click the Apply Changes button to implement them.

Setting the Home Page Return Link and Image:

  • URL For Home Page Link: Enter the full URL to the page you want people to return to after visiting your board. For example, "http://www.myserver.com/".

  • Text For Home Page Link: Enter the text that should be hyperlinked for your return link. For example, "Home".

  • Image For Home Page Link: If you want to display an image for your return link, enter the full URL of the image here.

  • Link Target: If you use your message board within HTML Frames, you'll need to set the window Target that the Browser will use to display your return page. "Top" should be used for non-Frame Web pages.

  • Show Image Only Check Box: If this box is checked when you click the Apply Changes button, only the Return Image will be displayed on your message board, the Link Text will be ignored.

    When you have made the changes you want, click the Apply Changes button to implement them.
