    how do I get to the administrator log in? I can get to the forums home, but see no link to the administrator login to set the options etc.

    yourdomain.com/forum/admin/index.php

    Obviously I ain't sure what your forum directory is called though.

      View any members profile,and at the bottom of the page you will see a link for
      Administrative Options: User Options

      I presume thats what you mean.You wanted the link that opens the Admin cp.

        There is not a link to the CP on the homepage, and for good reason.

        It may make users feel left out, turning them off cold.

        As suggested above the easiest way is to just type your addy to the forum, adding this to the end of your base link: "/admin" {without the quotes naturally )

          If you are the administrator, there is a link to the adminCP under a members profiles.

          Regular members don't see it.....obviously.

                I edited my header template to add a Admin Login link if an admin is logged in. Got it from vBT.

                phpinclude:
                Code:
                // This code is PHP4 only:
                // ob_start(); 
                // require("yourheader.html");
                // $header = ob_get_contents(); 
                // ob_end_clean(); 
                
                //Administrative/Moderator Login
                if ($bbuserinfo[usergroupid]==6) { //Admins
                $adminlogin = "| <a style=\"color:red\" href=\"admin/index.php\">Administrative Login</a>";
                } elseif (($bbuserinfo[usergroupid]==5) or ($bbuserinfo[usergroupid]==7)) { //Mods
                $adminlogin = "| <a style=\"color:red\" href=\"mod/index.php\">Moderator Login</a>";
                } else { //Everyone else
                $adminlogin = "";
                }
                //End Login Code
                Sorry about the indenting, was too lazy to fix it when pasting

                In the header, put $adminlogin wherever you want the login link to go.
