[help request] Issues with certain links\account access in this forum
Sorry if this isn't the right forum, but I didn't see one dedicated specifically to forum help. I tried to search, but that's part of the problem. I am unable to access the following links within the forums webpage: Username, Inbox, My Profile, as well as the forum search function. I receive the following message when I try:
UFTTestGuy, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:
Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
When I attempt to search the forums, I receive a connection refused error message.
I know I've activated the account, and I've read the FAQ and new user forum, but I didn't see anything relating to other people experiencing this issue. Can anyone assist? I'd like to absorb the knowledge here and one day in the distant future contribute my own, but that would be easier if I could at least use the forum search feature.
Thanks in advance for the assistance
You need to use the site a little more to activate features. As you post messages and help people (without spamming) you can earn feature activation. As for search, yes there was a problem with the service which I just restarted. Thanks for reporting it. It should work again.
Thank for the quick reply! I assumed I had to be more active to unlock features, so I used this post as a test to at least ensure I could post. I just checked the search feature, and it works now. Thank you so much!
