Its working.

Thanks you so much.

What language are you using?

Will it work with signatures?
Or it only can block links in posts?

I am trying to install this mod. I am running 2.0 RC3. I am intensely frustrated. No mod I have tried seems to install cleanly into 2.0 RC3, including this one.

Here is what I am getting:

I get this warning with "Error in Package installation" for the test installation:

1.     Execute Modification     modification.xml     Modification parse error
2.    Execute Modification    modification.xml    Modification parse error

Then when I do "install now" I get the following PHP error:

Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/f5/computerconsultantsforum/public/forum/Packages/temp/./updateDatabase.php' (include_path='.:/nfsn/apps/php5/lib/php/:/nfsn/apps/php/lib/php/') in /f5/computerconsultantsforum/public/forum/Sources/Packages.php  on line 944

I realize this is server specific info. I have no idea what to do now. I checked in SSH, there are no files in the /temp path.

I also attempted to use the install-as-version feature. I used version 1.1.11. Different errors but still doesn't install.

Mods in SMF seem to be an incredibly brittle, flaky technology. Is this stuff ever reliable to apply without constant dicking around?

Make sure a temp folder is created and writable in the packages folder of SMF.

THANK YOU! It seems to have installed correctly. No errors. I got the big banner page when it installed.

Now, exactly where do I go in the admin pages to see the settings for this feature?  I looked under anti-spam and most other settings pages, I don't see it. It doesn't seem to have added anything.

I would check under Features to see if it is listed or the anti spam area forget exactly where it is at.

Wait. The damned thing DIDN'T INSTALL. The mod splats out this lengthy (useless, distracting) self promotional page of green headlines.

And at the VERY bottom of the page it wants FTP info in order to fix the file permissions.

So I do that. It logs in FTP wise. It keeps saying as an error message "You cannot download or install new packages because the Packages directory or one of the files in it are not writable!"

It's saying:

The following files need to made writable to continue installation:

    * /f5/computerconsultantsforum/public/forum/Sources/Load.php
    * /f5/computerconsultantsforum/public/forum/Sources/Post.php

It's not complaining about the path to SMF I'm giving, but I give it any path and it returns the same useless SMF error message.

Ok, so I go in manually with FTP and change the permissions to write on these files.

I STILL can't get past the !@&(!@&(!@*&!(*@&!@ FTP screen. There is no "Install" button.

The error recovery here in SMF is amateur hour, and whoever maintains this mod needs a far shorter screen of self promotion. (I mean the "Installation Readme" which is pretty well useless.)

I just edited my post above. It really didn't install. The stupid readme distracted me and I was tired last night. I thought it installed. I did not scroll down through the page of garbage to see the error message.

Basically, the "feature" of SMF that uses FTP to automatically set the file permissions for the mod install isn't working, it's not seeing the files permissions change even when I do it manually with my own FTP, and it doesn't permit the install to happen.

Also, everything under packages which it is complaining about has a permission of 777.

And both the folder and every file in Sources too?

I just set all files to writable by all in Sources. Every file there now has a permission of 666 or 777.

The Packages directory, same deal.

Now when I click "Install Mod" I just get this message: "You cannot download or install new packages because the Packages directory or one of the files in it are not writable!"

Ok, it's been quite frustrating. The "you cannot" error above is bogus. (SMF's error message is busted.)

I Googled the error string and found this guy's post on this forum:

http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=357788.msg2487027#msg2487027

So I created a temp folder inside Packages, chmod'd it 777. I tried an installation of a different mod I had been trying before with the same results, "Sitemap", which was also failing. It installed to completion. Same with the Anti-Spam links.

Also, for everyone's info - if this mod is installed properly, the settings are available here:

Administration Center »Modification Settings » Miscellaneous

The mod itself is fine The culprit here was SMF which seems to be pretty lacking in refinement of useful error messages for core stuff like this.

Thanks for your help.

What should the settings be set at?   Like,  what do you recommend for:

Post count under which members cannot post external links

Post count under which members external links are shown [nonactive] and without http://

Post count under which members external links are set [nofollow]

Guests...


??

My guests are set not allowed to post.      I am just looking for better instructions for the settings above?

Will this mod change already posted links,  or just new ones once it is installed?


Also, will this mod effect my RSS feeds?   These have external links.

SMF 2.0 RC3


For BBC "Code", instead of Select it's become

Code:  newbielink:javascript:void(0); [nonactive]

Any fix please? Thanks.
