HI there,

We have a forum page and our page needs updating, however, our host doesn't know how to log in and make changes to the main page. Can you please help me as he's not very tech savvy? Is there anyway that he can transfer the responsibility over to another member that can update the page? Thanks Debbie

Which forum and where is this page, give us the url, the address? If it's not a Delphi Forums page you need to ckeck with the organization or previous owner to change access.

We can transfer controls to forums as needed but not to outside pages elsewhere. 

more details needed ...

Do you want to change the Start Page which shows when you click on the link you posted? That's done in Controls, Forum Customization, Start Page. The Host Jakiboyz would have access there.

If you mean the page you get via the Webpage tab, that's not under our control: https://www.scrc501.com/

let us know how it goes ...

Hello again.  You just got me reinstated

But I seem to have two IDs, Bill Condie and PBG

I just need to be the MacWinDOS  owner.  I;m posting there as a guest.  Can we kill off the other one?  These names go back to the About days. One for Delphi, one for about

Not clear ... you're logging in using member name PBG which should give you controls in the forum.

If you mean to remove the Bill Condie showing next to PBG, that's done by removing the nick in your Preferences.

explain more if that doesn't  answer ...

You are logged in as the owner, you've seeing only that first part of your ID. Look at your post and you see both parts.

From: Bill Condie (PBG)

Your login and Visitors lists show only the nickname ( Bill Condie ) but any messages you post show both the nick and the membername the way you see it here.

Was this your other ID?

I don' tthink so

The closest I can remember is PBG/BillCondie. I used it on About. Does About even exist?
