Hello, i'm from beijing. I've just installed it the day before yesterday.

Who can tell me how to forbid anonymous users/unlogined users to post new thread? How to assign admins? How to create now topic sections and its subdivisions, like Jforum General with Announcement Off-Topic TestForum etc. ? Where is the Admin Panel? I found an SSO example, but i should import a class of ActionServletRequest which i can't find from the jforum folders?

Now i'm studying the document on the front page. Who can answer my questions? :?:

You can configure the general group to only have permission to read. You can forbit anonymous posts per forum aswell... it all is being done via admin panel

You can find the admin panel like you can always find it. log on as admin and on the bottom there's a link "Administration Panel" or something like that. This will call the admin pages... for configuration of all permissions and forums.

I dont think you require actionservletrequest, do you? ... for a simple sso impl there's the remoteusersso thingy... which simply checks for the remoteuser, in case you'd use the basic auth within e.g. tomcat.

Thanks for your reply. Well, how can i login as admin? I tried admin or Admin with the password of these two, but can't access. So what's the default password of admin?? Then i tried to retrieve it from jforum_users. Of course, it's encrypted~

Can you tell me more about remoteusersso?
My webserver is Tomcat.

... you should know the admin password that you set during the installation ;-)

As far as about the SSO: There's alot of different approaches, several are mentioned throughout the forum too, some even describe a cookie based sso mechanism in details in the forum.

The example that ships with the forum is RemoteUserSSO I think, you should find it within the java files, if you download the source from CVS.

It's a simple example that reads out the request.getRemoteUser parameter. if it's set, the app considers the user to be already logged on. Simple as that :-)

Thanks. it works.

"Administrator Password Yes Type the password of the administrator (Admin user). "

I thought it was the admin password of my xp os, since the CVSNT installation had used that one. I didn't read carefully. Now i've entered the real sphere of Jforum.

"Administrator Password Yes Type the password of the administrator (Admin user). Use this identity to enter the admin panel. " --Maybe this instruction is better.

As to the SSO, I'll leave it to tomorrow. It's 23:00 now~
