Which is better to have? The Classic or the Zeta? 

Thank you for any help. I have my forum set on classic.

**Editing because I found your forum and see you have things worked out. I'll still leave the info below.

New forums open as Zeta by default but can be changed in controls.

Note that if you have the "View all Zeta forums as Classic " options enabled on your Preferences  you will not notice your own being in Zeta.

Also note that Classic forums use the Zeta model for Mobile. So if your forum is set to Classic and you then view it on your phone it will look like Zeta!

There is a (works for now and probably ever) work around to that so you can see it in Classic on your phone but consider this... Old dogs certainly can learn new tricks (WOOF!) and Zeta is much easier for most people to navigate from their phone.

Thank you! :)

I just had another question...how do I get people to visit my forum? So far, no one has visited today. I did sent out invites to friends and they are not receiving the invite.

You can just add the URL for your forum to messages, like this:

Look through our Creative Arts category to find forums that create sigs for members:

That's ok to do here in this forum and I was being a bit cheeky but when you are having a problem on your forum it's always best to include the link. I fixed Gunter's by adding the s to the https part ;)

It is however considered poor manners to just paste a link to your forum in your posts on regular forums. However a small tasteful sig (graphic with your forum's name and linking back to it is generally acceptable. These are not Delphi rules- just what seems to be ok in the community.

With basic accounts you'd need to paste that in each time you post.... if you upgrade to Extra you can store sigs and they auto post. If you upgrade to Plus you can fancy up your forum with a customized theme and trick it out with Staff.

Not that I am trying to push paid memberships! Just info :)

Here's more info (lol) - https://www.delphiforums.com/plans.ptt

Ok, thank you! Do I need to add it to every post? Or is there a place where it will just be attached to my posts?
