  • Announcement issue

    I am trying to post an announcement onto a newly made forum category. I have these announcements custom worded to all the other areas. For some reason it will not show up in this newly made area via the Announcement Manager. Do I need to rebuild something in the maintenance area for it to show?
    The new areas are called "body and paint" and there is a sub forum .
    TIA

    Sorry I posted this in the wrong area. Should have been in Support and Troubleshooting

    Unlike Notices, Announcements require a separate module to be placed on the page where they should appear. Do you have the Announcement Module on the page(s) that you want it to show on?

      Yes the announcement module is up. It's the same module for all the areas, so it should be good to go. The older forum areas are working, it's just the new areas I added today. The one module covers all of these forums

        Your announcements in those two forums aren't set to be active until 2025.

        It should be noted that we are working to combine Notice and Announcement functionality. Both ultimately serve the same purpose and will be consolidated under Announcements. The aim is that we do not lose any of the current Announcement functionality but enhance Notices to take over. It doesn't make sense to maintain two features that do the same thing.

          Thanks for picking that up.. My bad

          I like having both , because it allows us to do a temporary notice while having a permanent announcement posted in each area. If they get combined then only one can be utilized?

            You can have multiple notices in a single area.

            Does VB 5 have the facility to auto generate announcements to individuals who haven't joined any groups in an allotted time period or a given number of posts?

            Thanks.
