I cannot receive emails. 

Does it need any special configure? (The hosting server requires SMTP authentication, the registration is working)

Thanks

Hi, anyone has encountered the same issue please?

Did you set SupportEmail in web.config file? I think this one is used in Contact screen.

Thanks very much!

And what should I do if I want to change the default category name "all"

Just open Menu.ascx file (Views\Category) and edit it there.

Thank you!

And I'd like to change the word "more" in the "Top Leaders",

And the word "enter your keyword" in the searchbox,

May I know  where I can change it?

Helen,

Try searching for those words. If you want to run this site it's best for you to learn a bit how it's structured.

"More" is in Top.ascx (Views\Membership).
In order to change searchbox's text - edit Search.min.js (Assets\JavaScript).

Thank you so much!

I'd like to configure the registration with Gmail account, the web hosting service provider said the Gmail cannot be set SMTP in the web.config,

they said it requires to enable in the send mail code.

Could you please tell me where's the send mail code located?

It's EmailSender.cs file (Instrastructure\Mail).

Hi Pawlos,

Thanks a lot, you do assist me so many time. I'm so new to this and this is real difficult to me. I see this is the source code file, how I can transform it to application files?

Hi Helen,

I'm not sure I understand you correctly. What application files you are refering to?

Sorry, I mean if I download the source code from "http://kigg.codeplex.com/SourceControl/ListDownloadableCommits.aspx"

and edit, then how I can upload it to the website?

You have to build it first. As far as I remember you need to upload all Kigg.*.dll files to bin folder.

Indeed, I found my visual studio 2008 cannot open .dll file

Hi Helen,

You have to do it locally. Change the code to support gmail (I can't help you with that - I have no idea what's needed), build using your copy of Visual Studio and then upload to your hosting.
Why you need to do this like this? You said in your first post that registration is working. Why you want to switch to gmail? I think it would be better for your futher users if they get e-mail notification from you own domain (although maybe it'a also possible using google apps).

Sorry but I don't have a Messenger account :)

Pawel

Yes, the registration is working when I'm using my domain name,  could you please email to "servefault@gmail.com", 

I do wish you could assist me on changing the website title, I'm not sure how to start.

Thanks

Hi, this is a real great project, but I still encounter many unpredictable difficulties:)

1st, I'd like to restrict the users' "Submit New Story" time,  such as I'd like to set the interval time to 30 minutes, I'd like to know where I can modify the time.

2nd, I'd like to change the 2 words "shouts" & "Shout it", where I can modify the words?

3rd, and how I can setup Custom Error pages?

4th, when I browse "www.Servefault.com", it always redirect to "servefault.com", is there any special settings I need to configure?

5th, I'd like to submit URL to Google, but I cannot find the place to add "Meta tag" to verify the pages:(

Best Regards,

Helen
