  1. Specific Board Time - Written By isoldehn,

  12. SMF: Installing Mods That Error - Written By Arceus,

    A little quick guide on what to do when a mod you're installing on SMF errors, and how to install it anyway. Did SubAccounts give you an error? Yeah, I bet it did. That's okay, it still works on 2.0.15, you just need to do some tweaking. A lot of mods that error will work anyway; this handy guide will show you how to make them do their thang.

  13. Getting Familiar with SMF - Written By Arceus,

    Where are the options I'm looking for? What are all these other options? How do I make it do this? Can I make it do that? This handy guide to getting set up with SMF should help answer some of these burning questions. Even if you've been using SMF for a while, I'd peek at this guide anyway, as you may find something in it you didn't know SMF did! It aims to take you from installation to initial set ups, and also has a neat list of useful modifications, some pro and con things, and a bunch of "this person's spent too long working with this software" rambling.
