The following information is a brief overview for those new to phpBB forum administration to help get started.

There are a just few forum settings in the admin control panel which are overridden to protect the security of your's and other's boards, beyond these, you have have full control over how your forum is organized, managed and it's style.


The first step for a new forum is to create the desired categories and forums.

Remember, the organization of your forum can always be changed as it grows and evolves.

To manage your forums, login to your admin account and look for the "Go to Administration Panel" link near the bottom of the page. Then look in the admin menu for Forum Admin -> Management. Click that link and you will be able to add, edit, delete or arrange categories and forums as you like.

Each forum can have it's own unique set of permissions which control who can post, reply, edit and delete and more. Forums are created with the ideal settings for security so this can be ignored by most admins, however you can learn more about guest posting and how to change forum permissions in our How to Manage Forum Permissions guide.

To learn more about customizing the look and feel of your forum with logos and over 325 styles, see our Styles Support forum.

For all News Portal/Blog related issues, see the Portal Support forum.


As needed, see the other guides and FAQs in this forum for information about:

- Creating Sticky Topics and Annoucements
- How to Activate Moderators
- Setting Forum Permissions
- Locking, Splitting and Moving Threads
- Controlling Avatars
- and everything else

Good luck with your new forum! Smile
