Hi guys,

I've added the forum module to my site (not using the standard theme), however the page does not display what's under the "Messages" tab in the CMS for the Forum Holder.

I have no login/register | lost password | logout button etc, or any new topic buttons either... so basically I have a blank page... and a nested menu showing the forums I have created.

Can anyone tell me the code (and where it goes) for inserting these things? I can create a manual link to the area's I need, but its nowhere near as good as an actual coded control (as it should have). Granted this issue is most likely caused by the theme, there must be a way to insert these rather rudimentary features.

Thanks in advance!

are you using the default theme or a custom one?

I also suggest you use the latest version off the 'daily builds' for the forum - it has a few nice features and bug fixs. You can find it at
