Title: Install help for new SMF user
Post by: yeehaa on November 15, 2006, 11:07:31 am
Currently running SMF 1.0.9 and have installed the mod using the Package Manager.

Default theme is Ig-Oh, though users at my forum can choose between Ig-Oh and and the grey default theme.

Nothing is showing up in the Configuration Section of the Admin Panel using either theme.

After installing, this is the message in the Package Manager-

Do I need to execute a install.php command? I know very little about how to do this so any help is much appreciated-

Thanks

Try changing the SMF default theme and tell me if you see anything.
It should be in features and settings(or options)

See if the edits were done to the "modifications.english.php" file.

I am having the exact same issue. Which folder holds the modifications.english.php file?
Title: Re: Install help for new SMF user
Post by: imranraf on November 16, 2006, 06:50:11 pm
I checked the modifications.english.php file and this is what the file has:

<?php
// Version: 1.0; Modifications

?>

Look in the file modifications.english.php in the default theme or in the theme you are using. (default if your theme doesn't have one) and see if the ad mod is referenced at all.

I am just digging in, here, but I thought it might be helpful to say that I am having a similar problem.  The install reports success in every department, but there is no access to the ad management page from the configuration from either the default mod or any others.  I'm seeing on some other threads ways to manually fix that, but I doubt the intent was for a manual fix even on the smf default.  I'm just trying to be helpful and reporting a common experience.

The modifications.english.php file will be in the langauge folder of the theme you are using. I guess I should have been clearer about that.

For the Ig-Oh theme-

Quote
<?php
// Version: 1.0; Modifications

// Ig-Oh ADD
$txt['top_info'] = 'User Info &amp; Key Stats';
$txt['igoh_locked'] = 'Locked Topic';
$txt['igoh_sticky'] = 'Sticky:';

$txt['header_logo_url'] = 'Logo image URL:';
$txt['header_logo_url_desc'] = '(leave blank to show forum name or default logo.)';

$txt['forum_name_image_url'] = 'Forum name image URL:';
$txt['forum_name_image_url_desc'] = '(When it is a blank, forum name is displayed by the text. )';

$txt['theme_default_color'] = 'Main color of Ig-Oh theme';
$txt['theme_default_color_default'] = 'Default';
$txt['theme_default_color_green'] = 'Green';

$txt['topics_posts_in'] = 'in';
$txt['topics_posts_posts'] = 'posts';
$txt['topics_posts_topics'] = 'topics';
$txt['show_topics_posts_help'] = 'Show Topics/Posts mini help';

$txt['user_info_position'] = 'Posters information position';
$txt['user_info_position_desc'] = 'Posters information position of &quot;Display.template.php&quot;';
$txt['user_info_position_default'] = 'Default';
$txt['user_info_position_left'] = 'Left';

$txt['theme_version_attention'] = 'Hide theme version attention';

// The one to press translation of Modifications.english.php
$txt['necessary_to_translate'] = 'Necessary to translate';

?>

For the default theme-

Quote
<?php
// Version: 1.0; Modifications

?>

Does not look like it's there-

I did notice a blank next to the install.php in the pic above- does this matter?

No it doesn't. You will have to add the edits for the modifications.english.php yourself then. They can be gotte out of the install.xml file. It might be called modification.xml to.

What out of the install.xml file do I copy and paste it in the modifications.english.php?

Thanks

Make sure the "ads.php" file is in the sources directory. Ignore what I said earlier.

Post by: yeehaa on November 20, 2006, 09:54:05 am
it's not there.

I don't think the mod is installing correctly.

In the package manager it always says "Apply Mod"- when I do, everything except the "Execute Code --- Install.php" (in the pic above) has succeeded.

Under that window it says that it has to CHMOD files in order to finish- I have inserted my FTP info correctly.

What folders or files have to be 777 in order for this mod to be applied?

Frustrated- >:(

And I've removed the Ig-Oh theme so this applies only to the default theme 1.0.9-
Title: Re: Install help for new SMF user
Post by: yeehaa on November 25, 2006, 05:57:56 pm
guess that I'm SOL-
Title: Re: Install help for new SMF user
Post by: jerm on November 27, 2006, 09:47:11 pm
You are using a version for 1.0.9.
To follow the edits you will have to look into the theme board on this forum.

Have you been having similiar problems installing any mods?

Consider this SOLVED. I have upgraded my forum to 1.1 Final & installed the Ad Management Mod without any problems (Default blue theme)
