Title: No option to install ADS
Post by: abinowbhat on May 18, 2008, 09:44:31 am
I recently upgraded my SMF version from 1.1.4 to 1.1.5 by using the patch ( package ) available which is shown when you login to the administration centre asking you to upgrade to the latest version due to some bugs in 1.1.4

Then I installed Ad Management Mod. The option of installing ads don't show up in the administration panel.  Again on the SMF site ( http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=255 ) , it's shown compatible with 1.1.4 but 1.1.5 is not shown.

Please help me.

it's shown compatible with 1.1.4 but 1.1.5 is not shown.

Nevertheless, the mod is compatible with both original versions
1.1.4 and 1.1.5.

Do you still not see the option in Default SMF Theme Core ?

At which moment have you converted the forum to utf8 -
before the upgrading ?

Then you should have add the Ads.english-utf8.php file to the mod packet.

LB Habib,

please delete the attached file.
It is incorrect to overwrite the native file
by the file from another forum.
Different forums may have different set of mods installed
which probably modify consequently the related files.

If the file will be overwritten
then, in general, it will become impossible
to restore the entity of the forum files composition -
other than by reinstalling the whole forum
and whole set of mods.

Each forum has its own errors.
Particularly, this topic author
has passed the installation successfully - without error messages.
