How do I change my statistics on the forum?

Post by islander5660 » Tue May 17, 2016 12:12 pm

When I make a post, my statistics say I am using an older version of Avant. How do I change that? I couldn't find the setting in my control panel.

I did try that but when I click the Profile link nothing happens. In fact, it points back to this thread, so I don't get anywhere.

Why can't I change my profile?

You're clicking probably on the wrong link.

Click your name (Top right) ---> click User Control Panel ---> and in the User Control Panel click Profile (next to Overview)

I've been there already, but there is no option to change my stats as they appear to the right of posts.

xiaobing told me which link to click, but that only loops me back to this very page you're reading!

I can't click my name ANYWHERE on the forum (except at the Top Right). Is this a "new member" setting, where I can't view my profile until I make more posts? (That would be silly if I can't even work with MY OWN profile.)

Try this link:

http://forum.avantbrowser.com/ucp.php

If that redirects you somewhere, try turning off any blockers you have running or maybe trying it in a different engine as something is interfering.

Or if know the name of the theme (or can post a screenshot if your post count permits it and we have that rule activated), maybe it's a coding error in the theme.

No, that's not where I want to go. I already CAN get there, but I CANNOT get to where xiaobing directed me.

Why is no one understanding this??

He wants to change his profile info (what you posted)
I think some moderater (mysteryCfm?) changed some setting that only users with a certain amount of posts can change that info.
He can't get to those settings when he clicks on profile in user account control.

Try this one:

http://forum.avantbrowser.com/ucp.php?i=164

(And a little tip if people not understanding you is frustrating... since we're all talking about specific pages and links to help you solve your issue, terms like "there" and "link" aren't going to help anybody understand what you've already tried.)

Apparently I cannot access my profile info until I have a certain number of posts, which probably won't happen.

I had to wait two months for my forum account to be activated (and even then I had to contact the company directly to get it done).

And now this.

Not exactly the best user experience.

Sorry for missing this. There's no restrictions in place that I am aware of. I'll take a look as soon as I've finished upgrading the other forum.

You should be able to access it now (you were in the newly registered user group, which has limited permissions. I've removed you from that group, and modified the permissions for the group too)
