Default settings & Name Changes.

edited September 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hey everyone. I'm not very good with code and all, but I'd like to have default settings for new users to have Polls enabled, using the Poll 1.3 addon by Jazzman. I also cannot figure out for the life of me how to change usernames!? Thanks.


  • Changing usernames is an application setting (you can choose whether or not users are allowed to). If users are allowed you go account->personal settings->username (top box)->Save.
  • Thanks very much! Can anyone else help me with the poll thing?
  • Try opening up the poll default.php and adding this: $Configuration['PREFERENCE_ShowActivePoll'] = 1; below the 3 lines of include();s.
  • Worked perfectly! Thanks very much! :) Last question: Is there a guide to, or any easy way to, integrate Vanilla within a WordPress frame? Not like users or anything, like the integration, but just putting the forum inside a WordPress page.
  • There are a couple of discussions on integrating WP & Vanilla that may be a good place to start....
