XF 1.4 A few questions

#1
Hi I'm new to Xenforo.

I have a few questions:
1) How do I change the title of my forum and add a logo (I already have a logo)
2) I set all my permissions but the permissions aren't being applied?
3) How do I create forums within a forum? Whenever I try to do that the forum is put on the outside (home page) and not the inside of the forum.
4) How do you lock a forum but only have staff members post in it? Or hide forums from registered users and only visible by staff members?
5) How do I add my facebook page on the home?

I tried to navigate the admin panel but I'm new here and the admin panel seems hard to navigate.

Thanks :D

1) How do I change the title of my forum and add a logo?
Options -> Basic Board Information for the title.
Style Properties -> Header and Navigation for the logo.

2) I set all my permissions but the permissions aren't being applied?
See the link in my signature for how to set permissions.

3) How do I create forums within a forum?
Add the forum as a child of the parent forum.

4) How do you lock a forum but only have staff members post in it?
Revoke the 'Post new thread' and 'Post replies' permissions for the Registered user group, allow them for the staff members/user group.

5) How do I add my facebook page on the home?
You would need to edit the relevant template - see this set of guides for how to do that: How To...

You will need to use EXTRA.css to modify the search bar.
It's not visible to guests so I can't see it.

You have also uploaded the /upload folder rather than the contents of it, hence why /upload/ is in the URL.

Profile posts can be enabled in the options (and permissions).

As already stated, you need to make it a child of the other forum.
Yes I went to
Create Child Node of News & Updates
and then clicked forum. Still not working.

Revoke the 'Post new thread' and 'Post replies' permissions for the Registered user group, allow them for the staff members/user
Can you help me locate where this is?

Sorry for so many questions, I'm really not used to this at all lol

When my friend tries to edit her avatar, it says she doesn't have permission to view this page or perform this action? She has all permissions and is a staff member.
