Hi,
i have one more question :p
how can i add 2 more Admins to my web page?
because i have 2 partners in seperate locations who will need to access the webpage as an Admin and possibly edit it too.
thank you for everything once again you've really been a big help !

I don't understand. Do you mean the admins can edit the site? if that's the case, all that you can do is share your login and password to them. Sorry, you can't have more than 1 admin for a website.

Can't be done, Jack. You'll have to give them your login details I'm afraid.
If I remember correctly, this option was contemplated by Sean (one of the reps) some time back. If you are serious about doing this, remember to only let one user edit the site at a time.

Hi Jack,

As Kevin & Boomer said, the only way someone else can edit your site is if you give them your login email and password. Unfortunately we don't yet have a feature where you can setup multiple logins and passwords to edit the same site.

My best suggestion is that you create a separate account for the site you want to collaborate on and share these login details with the relevant people. This way you can keep the shared site separate from any other sites in your account.

we have used 1 email account to create some sites for friends but we dont want to give out the email address as each person does not want to look at the other person's site when logging in. Is there a way to allocate a site that has been created to another email address? thanks

No there isn't Michael,

You can create as many similar sites in different accounts to limit access.

yea thats ok, its wat i thought, but say for example i wanted the other 2 people to show up on my forums as admins is that possible?
ill try te explain better,
im the one listed as the Admin obviously,
but wat if a visiter on our forums wanted to ask one of my partners a question, and my partner wanted to let them know "he" was answering and not me, how could i do that? just change the signature i supose?
its sort of like what you are doing now, ( im getting loads of replies from different employees )
thanks !

To remove a moderator:

1. Click on "Forum Admin".

Aah, that's so nice Bri, thanks :-) Not around that much anymore. I do miss it though. "I'll be back" when I finally finish my s#!T. Glad to see that Ed character making an appearance again... as well :-)

Your standard HTML form would look as follows:

<form method="post" action="mailto:youremail{at}email.com">
Video Link: <input type="text" size="40" name="name">
<input type="submit" value="Submit Video Link"
</form>

Change the email address to your own!

It's better to use Jotform (personal preference) or Wufoo than a HTML "mailto" type form (for email harvesting reasons) though.

Hi Bobby, 

We have not integrated this feature and still do not have current plans to do so. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
