Making A Test Account

Alot of time Admins or Mods might ask you for a test account for your forum to help you solve a problem.




1.Log out of your forum and click register create two accounts name them what ever you would like. i would suggest starting the name with the word "test" so that you never forget what the account is for. Also when creating these account you don't have to use a real email example "blah@blah.com"

--1st name we create is going to be just a plain member account so the Admins Or Mods dont have to create a username and activate it just to help you on your forum

5.scroll down to the bottom under "Add Member :" type the name of the new account you created that you want to have Admin access then click Add Member
