I was concerned about the same issue~ Users can access those rules simply by changing the rule's number in the URL to view the other rules.

Great update, by the way! Thank you for your hard work.

Where is the actual Forum Rules boxes the three that you use to be able to type into. I have installed it on a mirror site of mine to check first and they aren't showing up it stops at the option just above there. "Reset acceptance status for all registered members"

As it makes hard to edit the rules this new way if that is what way you are going.

Cybernetec,

I asked above, where are the three input boxes that were there in previous versions, that you could type into there the rules ? They seem to be missing now.

Under the words "Reset acceptance status for all registered members" it is now just save options. Where do you set up these rules that you mention in the update ?

Click on 'Rules' in NavBar, then 'Manage Rules' in table header.

There you can edit, add, delete rule sets, and apply them to your forums.

'For breaking above rules you may be warned/banned appropriately.' was moved to Phrases.

How do I change the color of the "Forum Rules" link in the navbar? The bright green clashes with my style :/ Other than that, fantastic mod

EDIT - nevermind, I'm blind. Found it

@ Cybernetec, Thanks for putting those links at the bottom makes it much easier for the novice to get to where they need to be.

I'm having big problems with the newest version. I have successfully installed the hack and copied the previous forum rules but all I get is a blank page like so:



I am certain though that I have entered the forum rules where they should be and you can see this by the next image:



What's going on? Help please!
