Mod (Modification) not showing after installation?
« on: December 06, 2010, 04:53:02 PM »
With v1.x of SMF, mods only install to the SMF default theme. (Although, some will install to Babylon and Classic, too).

To make them work/show with custom themes, you need to make manual edits to the relevant files in the custom theme's directory.

To see what those edits are, you need to look on the mod's page.

Just below the download link, you'll see a parser.

Select the version that you're using and click "Parse".

Clicking "Select", just above a block of code, will select the code, with it's correct formatting.

Then, you just need to right-click and select "Copy".

When you paste the code to where it's supposed to go, the correct formatting will be maintained.

Sugested that too. Hey ho. I'd link you to the original discussion but it's not visible to most people (seekrit team board stuff that is more dangerous than wikileaks).


Don't PM me for support! Use the appropriate support board!

Hi,
I'm not sure if this is related to this post. I'm a newbie. I just installed SMF via my webhost with just one click. It looks fine, but it comes up with an Error saying the "Default Theme's Directory is wrong".
If anyone can guide me as to what to do within SMF, or is it from the initial installation and configurations via my webhost?

Thanks in advance!
Jenny

No, it's not the right place. ;)

If you tell me which version of SMF you're using, though, I can split this off and put it in the right place.

How's that sound?

You probably need to run this:

No link spam so I'm  unsure. I usually report spam posts with a bang, though. But that one *is* suspicious...

Maybe the "Perv" bit of the username's relevant, ay? ;)

What happens if there is no parser?  I'm using the Guhlin-Antep theme, and for most mods that i want to use, the mods install, but I get blank spaces in my admin panel. 

I have attached a photo of the problem that I am having.  Notice all the blank text areas for an installed mod?  This happens for most all of my mods. 

I'm not familiar with PHP, but can follow some directions...  Thanks!

looks like an issue with your language strings, but you are best to post in the mods support thread.

I would but that would be to almost every mod that I've ever tried, because this happens on all of them.  Is there a way to get some generalized help on this, so that I can ask for help one time, instead of 100 in 100 different mod threads?

well you dont tell us what mods you have installed, nor can most of us tell by that screenshot what the mod may be due to the lack of language strings. check your error log and see where that takes you.

Here's a screenshot of the mods that I have installed, some of which are giving me the blank entries....

I have tried many, many more mods that aren't on this list - I usually uninstall/delete them because of this - so I'd like to be able to use more mods...

Just a hunch. I suspect GarbledURLs might be your problem.

That's just a hunch, though.

I get what your suggestion in the original post is all about.  But my theme doesn't have a place where I can place the code from the Mod page.  If I open the page it says to place the code in in the default theme, I find that the installer put the code right where it should be.  But there's no corresponding page in my theme to change.  Does that mean I am just out of luck???
