Hey,

I can't register new users. Not as the admin, or when the user tries to register. The new user registers, and the message that an email will be sent comes up, but there's no email sent. Is thee a setting I'm missing?

I don't get this site at all!

You need to set the SMTP server on the Admin->Host Settings.

I've done that. SMTP address, username and password. I try to create a new user, and no email is sent. Any other ideas, or am I misunderstanding what is required?

Are you sure you have the correct SMTP setting? Have you checked the mail.config file, make sure teh settings are there?


<smtp from="forumadmin@yourdomain.com" deliveryMethod="Network">
	<network host="smtp.yourmailprovider.com" password="mypassword" userName="myusername" />
</smtp>

Is the mail.config file supposed to be in the /forum directory? I don't see it there at all?

If your running a later version, it will be in yafnet.config

If your running v1.9.3.3, you should see app.config, db.config, mail.config, urlrewriter.config and web.config all in you "forum" directory. These should be moved to the site root if your intergrating YAF with another site. The web.config file will need merging.

Thanks for your help so far. I found the yafnet file, this is what's in it.

<yafnet>
<connstr>user id=pis0825302242179;pwd=Pisst2008;data source=p3swhsql-v06.shr.phx3.secureserver.net;initial catalog=pis0825302242179;timeout=90</connstr>
<uploaddir>~/upload/</uploaddir>
<boardid>1</boardid>
<root>/pisst/forum</root>
<!-- Enable URL Rewriting -->
<enableurlrewriting>true</enableurlrewriting>
<!--logtomail>email=;server=;user=;pass=;</logtomail-->
<!--categoryid>1</categoryid-->
<!-- Enable these to use a custom user class "provider" -->
<!--CustomUserAssembly>TinyGecko.YAFIntegration.dll</CustomUserAssembly>
<CustomUserClass>TinyGecko.YAFIntegration.yafUserClass</CustomUserClass-->
</yafnet>

I'm running version 1.9.1.7 by the looks of it.

Do I embed that smtp code in this file?

Thanks again.
