XF 1.3 Error when logging in

    This is probably going to be a basic fix, but I'm new to website building.

    I just created my forum and set up my user account. I have no problem logging into the admin panel and making changes, but when I try to log in to the forum to post, it says "Error: You do not have permission to view this page or perform this action." Did I change a setting that is causing this, or is it something else?

    Thanks for any advice in advance

    That sounds like a typical permissions issue.

    Use the analyze permissions function in the ACP to determine how the permissions for your account are being set.

    You're right. I'm seeing that my general permissions are set to no, but don't see a way to change that under my profile. How can I change this?
