I have to admit... I haven't spend much time exploring UNA, moreover I'm not a programmer nor am I too techie.  I have some knowledge of html, uploading wordpress and navigating the various themes available for it... just the basics.  

Having said the above, it would be helpful for newbies, like myself, if there was a basic guide - a guide for suggested plugins, etc  to create a dating website and a basic  social networking site.  (I chose these two because I assume those types of sites would be most popular sites of interest for newbies - I could be totally ).  

The guide would be very simple.  All it will do is suggest plugins one would choose to create a bare bones  dating website and another for a social networking site.  This guide will give allow the newbie to get their feet wet and then explore more advanced features / plugins available.  Having all those plugins, etc. available to choose from is overwhelming. 

Create a simple guide for suggested plugins that are bare bones, using free plugins only, and another suggestion that has both free and paid plugins for advanced features.  It would be great if there existed such a guide for creating 1) dating website and 2) a bare bone social networking site. 

Thanks  for considering my idea.

At the present moment I'd like my website to be text only.  Where do I go to set so images, videos are prohibited / turned off.   However, I'd like for members to be able to post links (urls) to images, Youtube videos, etc.  

Thanks.

p.s. I'm not code literate... at present wordpress is my comfort zone

    • Hello Simon !

      You may go to the Studio->Permissions app and disable there the actions like "Create Photo", "Create Video" for every active level.

      I am learning how to create search forms for Persons.  I have created 5 search forms for Persons.  How do I delete some of these search forms?  I can't seem to find the delete button. 

      Thanks in advance.

        • btw, I was successful creating the Search page but I had renamed something and lost that page... and because I had so many pages created and I didn't keep track of which page I tweaked so that succesful search page I created was lost.  

          I've attached my Persons Search Forms page for your reference.

          • Well, by default the Persons app has 2 search forms:

            Persons Search and Persons Comments Search. Just be sure not to delete those 2. The search objects are stored in the `sys_objects_search` table, you may delete all fewer forms there (backup this table first).

              I have just done a new install of 12.0.

              I have not added any Apps from Market yet.

              My links, both People and About, on Home page doesn’t work.

              When I Click on People link I get a message:  

              404Not Found

              Please forward this error screen ……

              The server can not find the requested page:

               ….   page/persons-home (port 80)

              Thanks for any help provided!

                • Hi, Simon - You installed 12.0.1 and and the menu for and don't work?

                  When you hover your mouse over People and About, what's the URL that they point to?

                  Also, you can edit those in the Studio > Navigation app.

                  • Hi Witches.Chat, When I hover over 'People'  the URL  points to:   mysite.com/page-persons-home  (there is no http:// ,https://  ,  http://www.     and no  https://www.        in front of the url.  

                    And when I click 'People' it takes me to the:  404Not Found   page. 

                    p.s. I just took a look at Studio>Navigation app   and didn't find it helpful, maybe it's just me... I'm a newbie.

                      I'd interested in creating a question and answer type forum like that of Quora.  It would be great if you'd consider adding this new feature:

                      - Enable threaded (nested) replies, refer to this feature found at bbPress https://codex.bbpress.org/features/reply-threading/

                      Thanks for considering this suggestion.

                        • Hi Simon. While it’s easy to enable threaded replies, it would clash with overall Discussions UX logic. Just like Forums, they are meant to offer continuity by “bumping” the topic if there’s any reply - this encouraging the discussion to develop and create a more elaborate informative resource. If we thread replies, it would be hard to see where the latest one is in case it’s a reply to earlier posts. Posts with comments can be threaded, as they are meant to be more transient ,and comments are secondary.
