Wow, that was quick!

I actually was just coming back to say never mind, it occurred to me that I could just restore the files from the .php~ versions, so I started with the Subs.php and I'm back in!  :D

Not going to try installing it again, though - I'm sure it works fine, there's nothing wrong with the mod, but I put in so many mods at the same time I'm amazed I didn't end up with a problem sooner. Thanks for getting back to me so quickly!

Oh okay, well not a problem. If you want me to try and install it for you, I can definitely do that. At any point, feel free to send me a PM if you have any questions or need help with anything.

Note to others reading this topic: Please don't think the above offer stands for everyone. Only PM me if I ask.

also, please note a few things...

First, you should never install "many" packages at once.
You should always install one, check to make sure it works and did not mess up anything and then install the next.
It also helps to take backups between installs.

second, deleting a mod does not actually remove it.. you have to uninstall BEFORE you delete it.

Labradoodle-360, thank you, I appreciate it, it was something I felt might be handy down the road somewhere, I just don't need it at the present time.

Kindred, I did check to make sure things worked before installing the next mod, thank you, I may be new to SMF but I'm not an idiot. Not too sure how that made any difference in this situation, though, since I really have no way of knowing whether a new mod is going to play well with the previously installed mods until I install it. As for backups, I got over 90 mods installed just fine, about half of them twice, and did a complete reinstall of SMF, in less time that it would have taken me to do a dozen backups. And again, not sure what difference that would have made since I now know the affected files are already being backed up, and all I had to do was look at which ones were changed and copy them over from the .php~ backups.

well, depending on the auto backup is making some assumptions... I always take a full backup of my files before installing mods. That way, I just restore the backup rather than working my way through individual files.

Sorry, I didn't mean to sound snippy, and for others who might be reading this, let me be clear that I agree with your advice 100% for most instances. In my case, I haven't even 'opened the doors' yet, it's just me and a few fictional members for testing purposes - the worst case scenario is having to do a complete reinstallation of SMH (but no critical data loss). That's a significant risk for a forum that's already in operation with a large membership and lot of traffic, where the potential consequences are much worse.

Matthew K.

Meh, you just be careful and know how to handle things.

Please excuse me if this has been reffered already, but when I'm installing this mod, the TP menu button is vanishing ... is there any way to solve this ?

(excuse me for my bad English)


Aplion

Matthew K.

You can add the button back using Menu Editor Lite?

This can be done using the page link but without dropdown menu functions ...

Ignore it please ... everything is fine.

Thanks

Matthew K.

Fantastic, great to hear it! :)

I installed this mod, and it has crashed my forum.

I get this error

Table 'tlsjumpn_smfv1.smf_menu_items' doesn't exist
File: /home/tlsjumpn/public_html/forum/Sources/menu_source/resources/main.php
Line: 62

Any ideas what to do?

And no, unfortunatly my last backup was before i installed this forum, hoping not have to start all over again if i can't fix the issue.

*hits self in back of head for not doing a cpanel backup before installing mod*

Look in the mod and fin the database instructions file. Extract and run it from your forum directory.

For some reason, that did not happen during the auto install

I have found a file called

menu_db_install.php when i extracted the zip file locally on my mac.

Not sure what you mean, do I upload that to the server, then run the php file?

Do i just run it in the root smf folder, eg, domain.com/forum [nofollow]?
