creating Privacy Policy

Using my AP-->Options --> Basic Board Info --> I set up a Privacy Policy URL. I mimicked the Terms and Rules URL

The problem is, that's as far as I can get. When I click the Privacy Policy link at the bottom of my forums I get an error because the page doesn't actually exist. How can I set up a message for my users to read?

You need to create a custom page and set the URL accordingly.

Currently the URL you have defined is part of the built in help pages and obviously that page doesn't exist - and it's not a simple matter to add a new help page.

If I was you I would create a new Page node and use that, as it will already be styled exactly like your site with header, footer, breadcrumbs, etc.

The url would be something like

You can set the node to be not visible but it will still be accessible by browsing to the URL.

Now, I don't understand why this isn't in the help like Terms is. I find both important as one another.

I agree. Imo it should be part of standard install, be next to help. But hey, at this point with the push to get these out into production and the key pieces mostly in place I'm just happy to have a way to get it this far.
