    Hello i tried to create a general forum rules on my board and the thing is that i would like this thread to be displayed to all of my forums & categories since this is a global thread for the rules. I don't see any option where i can set the thread to announcement so it would show up in general boards not just in a particular forum. I don't see any option in the moderation tool either. Thanks!

    I suggest using a notice instead:

    Admin CP -> Home -> Notices

    There is no feature to show a thread in all forums.

    Then you don't have full admin privs. Edit the library/config.php file and make yourself a super admin:

    $config['superAdmins'] = '1';
    Multiple userids are specified with commas:

    $config['superAdmins'] = '1,2,3';
    edit - also note that Notices are a feature of XF 1.1.x

    Then check your permissions here:


    Admin CP -> Users -> Administrators
