SMF Ads and SMF 1.1.4 not installing
« on: October 19, 2007, 03:05:20 pm »
Hello there,

Just an update.  The package installed in SMF says that your product is corrupt.  Downloading it from the site shows this during install

Error in Package Installation

At least one error was encountered during a test installation of this package. It is strongly recommended that you do not continue with installation unless you know what you are doing, and have made a backup very recently. This error may be caused by a conflict between the package you're trying to install and another package you have already installed, an error in the package, a package which requires another package that you don't have installed yet, or a package designed for another version of SMF.

This does not mean it's corrupt. All it means (probably) is that you have another mod installed that edited the default index.template.php and this mod can't find the correct code to edit to install right. You should still be able to install the mod. ONLY IF you are willing to do manual edits to that file after installing.

I am willing to do any changes that are necessary.  However, I would need to have specific information regarding what I am to change.  So what do you suggest I do?  Go ahead and let it install itself from the download? from the packages manager that is on SMF?  and then I can post here what it is not doing and someone is going to walk me through the edits I need?  What should I do next?

I appreciate your response and your help.

Kind regards,

If you go to the Theme Support board here and look at the stickies that are posted you will see the edits there. All you should have to do is install the mod and then do the edits to the index.template.php file. Keep an original copy of that file though before you edit in case anything goes wrong. (index.template)

Can I just ask you to please point me to the changes that need to be made for the default template in the index.template.php for version 1.1.4.  I looked in the themes folder and found a bunch of things, but I need some hand holding to find exactly what I need.  Once you show me the mods I can do all that myself.  Thanks!
