Please disregard my previous post as I have now fixed the CHMOD errors so that the graphics to our Forum is now displaying correctly.

However, since I have fixed that I have a couple of other questions:

1. Previously we had a background that was displayed as tiled but I cannot remember how to add that?

2. Our News used to display in the order I had it listed in our old Forum but in 2.5AE it appears to display in a random order now?

Can you help me with these?

thanks

Thanks for the help. I have run through the Quick-Guide as advised and thought Id done everything correctly but obviously not as now the homepage to our forums looks like its missing all the graphics (see 1st image below).

I think the issue is that somehow Ive set the CHMOD file permissions incorrectly. I have attached a screenshot below of what Ive been setting the permissions to where its supposed to be -rw-rw-rw but Im not sure if thats correct. Could you please help with what you think I may be doing wrong (im using FileZilla for ftp).

thanks again
