1. how does admin create new user?
2. i tried to join as a new user, but when i clicked Join Now, it redirect me to the home page. Do i need to enable it?
3. How can i rearrange the blocks? For example there are the features, content, community, website, …login block. i would like to place the login block on the right panel instead and place it above all block. Can it be done?

  • Bottom of LEFT, CENTER or RIGHT panels you should see 'Edit page' and the Comcode icon
  • Click.  This takes you to the 'Zone editor' page where the 'Preview', 'Edit' and 'Details' functions pop up for each of the panels (you get an extra 'Settings' tab in the center panel)
  • Select 'Details' then 'Actions: Edit' and you will be taken to the panel_right Comcode page where you have the various editable blocks (easier than trying to edit in the narrow panel itself)
  • Insert the following as the first entry of panel_right

Code

[block]side_personal_stats[/block]
  • You're done

Don't forget to remove the side_personal_stats block from wherever you have it at present.

Take my advice. I'm not using it!

For '1' possibly when you installed you'd chosen 'No forums or members'?

Well-settled

IIRC you can edit info.php to change 'none' to 'ocf'.

Hi,

This pack is for 4.2, which isn't out (and I have to admit, is coming out far later than I hoped). It's not been tested on 4.1.

You can probably edit your menu's manually and see that you have lots more choices for icons now - so achieve the same effect, but with a bit of manual labour.

You won't need to uninstall it. All I'm saying really is the pack will have installed lots of new theme images that you can now use for menu item images via the menu editor; just it hasn't auto-assigned them, so you'd need to manually do that now if you wanted to.

Sorry but it's likely 'no forums or members' led to messed up permissions for OCF so you'd need to reinstall really.
