For all of the features in this section, they must first be enabled by:

  1. On the left side of the ACP, click: “System Settings” (to expand the page so all the settings can be seen.)
  2. Then underneath that, click: “Modification Enabler” (This will cause the page to look like: this (Click for image))
  3. In the right panel, locate the name of the mod you want to enable and change the dropdown menu beside it to “Enabled”
  4. At the bottom of the page, click: “Save settings”
  5. Return to the main page of the ACP.
  6. Now in order to access the settings of the newly enabled mod you have to refresh the window. So press F5 (if you're on a Windows computer) or press the refresh button in your web browser. (You do not need to log out then log back in to see the change, only refresh the page.) The new section will appear in the list of sections on the left.




Bank and Points



Media Gallery

Unreal Portal


The modifications in this feature, unlike the section above, don't require the admin to enable a section in the Admin CP before they can be configured. These mods are smaller (though no less useful) and are easier to configure.
