Rules or Help Pages


The rules and help pages are an important part of any online discussion forum. They allow you, as the forum administrator, the means to help you users understand what is expected of them when they use your forum and how to use the forum effectively. Kunena does not supply any standard text for these pages.

The procedure for a rules or help page is the same.
