Ok am a bit flumoxed

Am signed in as admin on my forum, have the admin panel everything but am only showing as a guest and dont know why, have logged in and logged out and logged in etc 

this is the site

http://preciousjewels3d.com/

Have attached a couple of screenshots

kat

Admin>Current theme.

Check "Hide post group titles for grouped members:".

I find it incredibly odd that this isn't a global setting.

As it isn't, you'll need to do that for every theme, I'm afraid. :(

angiexx1

have put a tick in that but its not changed anything at all

Illori

what mods do you have installed?

kat

Just a thought...

If you use the SMF default theme, is everything hoopy?

angiexx1

Yup its all the same on all  themes installed so curve and core are the same as the theme am using as just tried

angiexx1

There is only tiny portal installed and the outline theme

kat

Silly question...

You ARE logged in?

angiexx1

Yup have logged in out in out cleared cache tried two different browsers etc
am in the middle of actually editing in tiny portal

here ill show you

kat

Well, the second picture would show you as a guest, until you actually login.

That first one's not showing you as a guest, it's just not showing ANY group.

Is THAT the same, with the default theme?

I just clicked on your profile and that's showing you as Admin.

So, at least we know that it knows what group you're in. :)

angiexx1

Its the same in the core theme and in curve and in outline the theme am using and default if try there
I have never had this happen before ever normally you would go straight into a group when registering so when your the actual admin who set the forum up would think it would sort it automatically
Normally it should show my name afte saying hello

i was just trying to show that with the second i was logged in etc and the differences

kat

I don't have Tiny Portal.

Can it be disabled, to check that it's not that that's doing something weird?

angiexx1

I have no idea if it can be disabled to be honest

kat

With Simple Portal, you can disable it in Admin>Simple Portal>General settings.

Maybe TP's similar?

angiexx1

I cant find a way to do it on tiny portal

just posted a test post and it hasnt got my name on that either
this is really strange

kat

I'm wondering if all the files went up, properly, when you installed.

Have you selected a language?

What I'm suspecting, is that not all the files inside the default theme's "languages" directory went up.

Also, can you go to Admin>Packages>File permissions and check that it's set to "Standard"?

I doubt it's that, but it's worth checking. ;)

angiexx1

where and how would I find out if all the files went in ?

how do you mean selected a language ?

kat

Have a you set a default language for your forum?

Admin... er... languages.

The best way to check would be by using FTP to see if they're there, comparing them to the files in the install archive (Package).

arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh now this is something I think should be done auto matically and obviously isnt
and its the blooming display name

it didnt have one for me for some reason now have gone into my profile and done it its fine

i only found out by mooching through the admin panel and going to members and there was none showing in the members list for me

so putting my display name in worked

but i signed up using angie why couldnt it just use that as my display name automatically for heavens sake

Kat thank you for all your help hun  xxx

am going to mark this solved

kat

Glad you figured it out!

Must remember that one, too.

It's bound to crop up, again.

I'll mention this to the developers.:)
