Help a Beginner
#1
Hello,

My colleague (who's just left town for a few days) set me up with a mybb.
It's http://www.underhill.ca/copan_support but there's no posts there yet.

I'm brand new to any kind of bb admin. Where's the best place to get help on admin'ing a mybb forum? A "MyBB Admin User Guide" so to speak. I don't even see a FAQ on this site. Am i in the wrong place?

I've poked around, even added a sub(?)forum but am unsure about various things.

Some specific questions:

What's the difference between a Forum and a Category? I know the latter belongs within the former, along with other categories, but isn't there just one forum, or should i be thinking that within the site, that the various forums are really just top-level categories?

How do i set up a list of registered users? I want my first sub-forum to be closed to guests.

Thanks for any help.
I've found this http://wiki.mybb.com so far, but i don't know if it's the best.
I think i can answer my first specific question: The hierarchy is this: Board > Category > Forum > sub Forum > etc

And i see how to add individual users. How about a large list of users, at once?
