    If you're unable to see these things it means that you need to edit your options in your Control Panel. You must have it set to "Basic Editor" & you will need to change it to "Standard Editor".

    Here's how:

    User CP > Edit Options > Misc Options > Message Editor Interface > Standard Editor

    ...it's near the very bottom of the Edit Options page. Change from "Basic" to "Standard" in the drop-down menu.

    Hope that helps!

    [HELP] User Control Panel Options

    A newbie here. Just a few questions. The things that come up under my name after a post like location, age, whatnot like that how do i get it there. And when i do post the additional options under the post do i mess with that. And if I do what is it and how do I do it. Thanks

    Re: help me

    First question regarding items under your name: That is under the User CP at the top left hand corner of your screen. You can change your options there. At a minimum you need to enable your PM/email option so that you can receive messages from the admins on this board.

    Question two: You can make adjustments to the options after you post if you want to. The first option deals with what you want to see (signature, etc), the following one is a subscription which I believe sends you email/PM when there is a new post in the thread you are interested in so that's up to you.

    Now that you've posted a message the problem must have fixed itself. Look at the new policy for lurkers and inactive users to prevent this from happening again.
