firstly as it's my first post, Hi all

secondly i have just been made an admin of a new web site that uses yetanotherforum 1.9.1.8

as i'm a noob concerning the admin features of yetanotherforum (and generally a noob at admining with any other forum software in all honesty), I was wondering if there is a tutorial or walk through of the admin features and their correct use? i had a look at the wiki but unless i'm being dim (entirely possible) i couldn't see anything specific??

In the same situation. I need some kind of guide that explains how the security groups, user groups etc work. There is very little information at all in the wiki about how to perform day-to-day administrative tasks. I created categories and forums, but it is not clear on how to create groups of people who can see each category, or forum. Just a lot of little simple questions, but there is no user guide to speak of that I can find.

I understand the sentiment -- I'm as frustrated as you about it at times. But there is not much help with thing around here. I don't have time to do documentation right now as I have to work for a living and still find time to move this project forward in addition to answering support questions daily on here.

Hi Jaben, can see from your reply you're frustrations, didn't want to sound whiney and appreciate you have a real world life as well... as i figure things out i will try and upload info to the wiki, perhaps you can do the same dbowler and we can help out?

The easiest thing I could do is make a screen capture flash movie which would explain basic admin functions.

I'll try to do that here this weekend as my niece is in town for a couple of days.

That would be awesome Jaben. My greatest need is basic permissions. I would like to create different user groups that I can specify which catagories are visible to each group. I want to disable the ability for people to register since I'll be creating each account... my plan was just to remove the register link from the nav.
