He has registered and is logged in. He has also been PMing me this afternoon looking for help. Another peice of the puzzle is that he can not veiw any pic's that are posted. He is logged in and as proof of that is able to PM me. Also states after registering he has not received an email from SMF. Could this be part of the problem, maybe the email from SMF got caught by a SPAM filter? When he does try and post he gets this message - "you do not have permissiont to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons: 1) Your account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. 2) If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation. If any members or moderators are able to help, post your suggestions as he is watching and waiting for help; thanks in advance.
