Hello,

I just got the webpart installed. It looks great.

I have run into a small problem - I have created 3 categories. But on the forum homepage I only see one. What am I missing?

Check the security on the forums. By default you might not have read access on the forums so they're not showing up.

Thanks for your reply.

I am still a little baffled. I have full access to the forum categories, and forums.

I have noticed though, that the items that are displayed show they were created by NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM

The ones that aren't displaying are showed as created by my login id (the same login id the AppPool is setup with) This applies to Categories and Forums

I was having problems getting the webpart added to the page so I changed the AppPool from Network Service to my domain account (for testing) Did I do something wrong here?

I must have something in the config setup incorrectly. Thank you again for your response.

have you defined forums for the missing categories? A category is not shown on the home page unless there is a forum defined for it.

What can you see when you go to the admin page? Can you see the missing categories there? Do they have forums associated with them on that page?

THANK YOU! I have figured it out. You helped alot. I never saw the admin link so I was using all these other links to try and manage the access and it just wasn't working..

I readded the webpart when I was logged in as the site admin and it is working now. I saw the admin link and then could see that the groups had no access defined
