The 1.6 Documentation is no longer maintained and some information may be outdated.

The MyBB 1.6 series reached end of life on October 1, 2015.

This means there will be no more security or maintenance releases for these series and forums running these versions of MyBB may be at risk of unfixed security issues. All administrators are strongly encouraged to upgrade their forums to the latest release of MyBB as soon as possible.

Forum & Posts: Forum Announcements

This section allows you to add forum announcements to a specific forum (and any children) or to all forums.

From the announcement listing page, you see a listing of all forums on your board. For each forum, you can choose to add a new announcement ("Add Announcement"). Beneath each forum is a listing of its forum announcements, with an indicator showing if it is within its date limits. If it is not within its date limits, it will not be shown. You can edit or delete each announcement.

If you have any global announcements, you will see another table listing your global announcements, and will be able to edit or delete these as well.
