Make sure you post in the correct forum related to your post content, question or concern. If you do not see a forum for your subject please make a request and we shall take it for consideration.

1. Always start a new thread for the support question or trouble you may be having. posting with-in the posts of others or hijacking a post, will only cause confusion for you us and others. Getting one one support is the quickest way and the best response.

a. always be specific with the version number of the SMF and Ezportal you are working with.

Looks good. I would add something about bumping topics no more than once a day or something like that.

If asking for support include what SMF version and ezPortal version as well would be helpful
