What is going on?
Probably a browser issue if you can see them in your account with regular member privs. Have them try a different browser - it could be one of their add-ons blocking things. Of course from your own regular member account you should try all the browsers you can get your hands on.

After updating this, the lime ''forum rules'' link disappeared.
How can I get it back?

As far as I know, it's set to show it.

Iīve set my rules to be replaced with the general rules for registration. But if a new user registers (and has to accept the rules in process) they do not appear as accepted. Instead he has to accept them again if he trys to use the restricted functions. After that they do appear as accepted. But itīs kind of annoying if users have to accept them twice. I hope you can help me on this

Installed it on my testforum which I'm using to develop my new project,

Definitely will keep it, works particularly well with Registration Optimisation (which doesn't show the rules at registration).

Is there a way to reset acceptance for everybody? e.g. for when you have a substantial update to the rules that you want everybody to accept fresh.

Edit:
On closer examination I've found the option to do that!

Great mod. I would like some help though. Currently the rules page looks almost like the rest of our forum but the background for the rules is not there. Plus there's no border. I've tried editing dozens of CSS but can't find the one bit of code that controls that. I've used FireBug to try and locate it too, but no luck.

How do you change the font color of the link that is placed in the navbar with this hack?

The color doesn't match the rest of the colors, I went through the style editor and can't figure it out.

The hack itself is great though!

If it helps when I edit under the "Style Variable Editor" - "NavBar" - "Navigation Bar Link Color" I can change the color of all the other links in the row that this link is in but the color of the "Forum Rules" link does not change.

And just in case you're wondering I am a complete idiot, maybe I should have read this part of the hack ""Forum Rules" text color (blank to use style's default)".

Funny how actually reading through it fixes the "problems".

Sorry about that.
