Those are not settings you would see in one of our Hosted Forums.    We do support here only for forums hosted by this service.   If you are not using an SMF for Free hosted forum you'll have to seek support at YOUR hosts support forum.   I found your ad here - it is not with our service so the ad was removed.

Thanks, I guess, But i would think SMfSuppport would support both....Not Just one.

Sorry For The Confusing, It was a miss understanding.

WE (SMF for Free) do support only for forums we host.
They (simplemachines.org) do support for the software itself and self hosted forums - which is what you are doing.

Two totally different companys.    We provide their software for others to use from our servers - its been tweaked, modified, things added to it for our members.   Things you would NOT have in your installation.  Hence the reason you can not find the Portal Settings option in your Admin panel  ;)

They'll be able to help you at simplemachines.org with quesitons you have for how you are running your forum -  good luck!

This is for the Legacy Portal (the older version of the homepage)

It will be on the toolbar as Legacy Portal Settings

If you want to use the newer version of the homepage see this guide: EZPortal Guide
