Default Problem accessing extended access posts

I have registered for extended access and my member CP says I am a member. I however, still don't see the forums or posts. Is there something else I need to do?

Registered members are those who have recently joined the Forum. Privileges are limited. They will automatically promote to Confirmed members with full privileges after a period of membership and participation.

I just joined the forum a couple of days ago and the first day, I could read the extended access forums. After that, they disappeared and I can't access them now.

wildturnip, only Confirmed members should be able to see the Extended area. I discovered that the permissions for the area were not set correctly, so thank you for posting about the problem.

You will be automatically promoted to Confirmed after a bit more participation in the other boards.

Thanks again!


Oliver

I am also having problems accessing extended forums, which I had access to before. Whenever I visit, it says I have not posted yet and this is not the case. How do I solve this.

Thanks.

Silvia

Hi, Silvia.

Access to the Extended area is limited to Confirmed Members (Green Stars). Promotion to Confirmed is automatic and depends on how long you've been a member AND how much you have participated in the other boards.

Your post count as I'm writing this is 7. If you participate a bit more in the primary boards you'll find yourself promoted to Confirmed pretty quickly.
