== MessageBoard ==
A guild-wide forum, similar to web-based discussion-sites. The difference is that this is a 100% in-game WoW addon. It does not need a web-server, or a server-character that is always logged in, or external software, or anything special.
It is often difficult to get guildies to log in to the web-site to check messages. It's usually only the "hardcore" people that
bother on a regular basis. This addon will help you. It requires no technical skills at all, beyond the ability to use a simple forum. Just install and play.
== Requirements ==
You need to:
- install the addon
- be a member of a guild
- have an administrator create rank permissions and categories
- To set admin, add to guild note for example:
Or multiple admins:
== Usage ==
- To open MessageBoard, press the minimap icon.
== Features ==
- Notification of new posts.
- Search Feature.
- Officer Only Categories.
- Password Encryption of Category Posts.
- Supports announcements, sticky topics, normal topics, voting polls, and locked topics.
- Users can set an avatar.
- Administrators can be assigned by guild note.
- Can ban users.
- Can add users as moderators.
- The text-editor supports inserting item,spell,http links.
- Quoting of posts during replies.
- The database size is regulated by automatic pruning, by means of post-count.
- Color Picker for posts.
- Private Messages.
- View other users stats and posts.
=== Please note ===
It is easy to forget that you are not using a regular forum, but it's all within the limits of the WoW game. This means that when you log in, you must allow MessageBoard 2 to 3 minutes to update data. The time will vary dependent on several factors. But the more posts, the slower it updates. The addons talk to one another, so the more people in the guild that have the addon, the better.
== Administrators ==
An administrator is needed to set MessageBoard options, category names, and permissions. The admin can also edit, delete, move, and lock any post. **An administrator is assigned by adding to guild note for example:
