The Members-Only Forum
The forum is the main part of EURAFRI. We used a software already known to millions of users on the Internet. They use it day by day for their communication. For sure access to the forum is encyrypted and protected by https access to the server. You will be redirected to the SSO Login page if you enter the forum at https://forum.eurafri.com. Use your username (not email) and password there.
After your first successful login your account at the forum is created and your name is listed as newest member on the bottom of the page. You will see the “board index” page listening forums and details.
Before you start using the forum you should change some settings. We do think that members do not want to check always for new replies, so the default setting is to email you if somebody adds a reply to a forum or topic you started or have subscribed to. This is the best way to get notified even the reply is long time after you posted or subscribed. We do not want that members looses business opportunities because of not seeing a reply. Email is the best for notification.
But we suggest to change more settings to get the best out of the forum.
Language of the forum interface
First you are able to set the language of the forum interface to English or German, depending on you preference. The user control panel is always your main starting point to change settings.
User Control Panel Global Settings
Inside the UCP (User Control Panel) the Board Preference Settings are the starting point.
User Control Panel Notifications
My language lets you select the forum interface language. It is strongly recommended to set Notify me upon replies by default: in posting defaults to yes.
User Control Panel Email Notifications
Furthermore it is also strongly recommended to enable all notifications and email notifications checkboxes to not loose any opportunity! Especially getting mailed after somebody quotes you is essential!
UCP has far more options including private messages between users. We suggest using Riot Messenger, which is another element of EURAFRI for messaging. Go back to “What’s inside index” and checkoout EURAFRI’s Server for members.
