Main Menu

Cannot access profile settings?

I am having a problem with the SMF Community Forum (this forum).

I want to change my timezone, because the forum time and my time does not match up. But I can't access the Look and Layout menu from my profile.

You cannot view this attachment.

I don't know if it's an bug, or an access resistriction, but judging from that I run the same forum software (like many others here), I don't see why an admin wants to block access to those.

Any help would be appreciated. If having access to the settings are impossible, please change my timezone to GMT+03.

Thank you!

It only takes a couple of more posts, and you will see the option to do this yourself. We quite heavily limit features from new members, because we are actively fighting spammers. You should get access to your profile after 10 (counted) posts, not all posts count on all boards.
"Before you allow people access to your forum, especially in an administrative position, you must be aware that that person can seriously damage your forum. Therefore, you should only allow people that you trust, implicitly, to have such access." -Douglas

How you can help SMF


Okay. I got confused because the message times does not made sense. :-\

You might want to re-consider enabling the theme options only, since the options on this page does not change anything publicly visible (unlike the Forum Profile tab.).

Thanks for the answer, through.


The permissions are not divided like that

Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

Actually for the things that the restriction was put in for, they should be as of 2.1 - namely signature.
