UBB Forum Terms

Forum Terms Explained

There are several variables associated with the individual forums.

NAME Each forum can have a unique NAME (such as, "Sports Talk", "HTML Zone", etc.). HTML is not permitted in forum names, so please don't try to include any HTML, javascript, or UBB Code in your forum names.
STATUS You can turn a particular forum on or off with this switch. Turning it off merely means that the forum will not be displayed to the public. Messages that may be in the forum are not deleted and the forum may be turned back on again in the future. This is merely a handy way of shutting down a particular forum for public access.
HTML ALLOWED If you want to allow your users to use HTML tags in their BB posts, turn this on. It is recommended that HTML be turned off, since one HTML error in a thread could throw off the display for the other replies on the thread page.
UBB Code ALLOWED UBB Code is the Ultimate Bulletin Board's shorthand, HTML-like code. For an explanation of UBB Code, click here. If you disable UBB Code, it will not work in the forum.
UBB CODE IMAGES ALLOWED You may want to allow your users to use UBB Code, but want to prevent them from using the UBB Code that allows for the dispaly of images. If that is the case, click on the "no" button.
Description This is the brief summary of the purpose of the forum that is listed on your forum summary page (the first page viewers see when entering your BB). HTML is permitted.
