        No, if its a new install skip that module, its for manually linking members if you have to, 99.99% of the time it isn't needed.

          is there a way to set all forums and catagories to "show all threads" instead of going through them one at a time?

            To update them all at once, run this query:

            UPDATE forum SET daysprune=-1;

            After running that query, update the forum counters:

            Admin CP -> Import & Maintenance -> Update Counters -> Rebuild Forum Information

                Admin CP -> Import & Maintenance -> Execute SQL Query

                To run queries you first need to give yourself permission to run queries in the Admin CP. To do this, edit this section of config.php:
                // ****** USERS WITH QUERY RUNNING PERMISSIONS ******
                // The users specified here will be allowed to run queries from the control panel.
                // See the above entries for more information on the format.
                // Please note that the ability to run queries is quite powerful. You may wish
                // to remove all user IDs from this list for security reasons.
                $canrunqueries = 'x';


                ...with x being your userid number.

                      sourcetableprefix = phpbb_geode

                      If you have : phpbb_geodeposts

                      OR

                      sourcetableprefix = phpbb_geode_

                      If you have : phpbb_geode_posts

                        users

                        when any of my imported users log on and try to access the board, I get the following:
                        "you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:
                        1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
                        2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation. "
                        is there a way to grant privledges for everyone at once since I have 6400 memebers?

                              as of yesterday everything was working fine. I bring up my forum today and I get a database error and then a email stating....

                              Database error in vBulletin :

                              Link-ID == false, connect failed
                              mysql error:

                              mysql error number: 0

                              Date: Tuesday 22nd of March 2005 06:53:40 PM
