Quote from: Matthew Schenker on April 13, 2007, 09:51:39 AMA warning to people considering Tinyportal...I had to uninstall TinyPortal from my test forum because it broke the entire site. Menus stopped appearing, the Gallery was no longer accessible, boards were gone, and the administrator area had missing entries.Even after I uninstalled it, pieces of Tinyportal were left in my test forum. No one could help me clean it up, so I uninstalled my entire test forum from my Web host and then re-installed SMF without Tinyportal.What a mess!
QuoteWhen you installed TP did you use TP themes?Regular SMF themes will not work with TP.
QuoteThey default theme will work with tp. If you want any special themes they have to be themes converted to use with tp. Also when you do an install of the test forum go to the server settings in your admin panel. make sure your forum default language is english not english utf
QuotePlease keep us posted . If it does it again and you dont mind post a link so maybe we can see more clearly what the problem is .
QuoteA suggestion is to make sure your permissions are correct before installing any mod.Go to Packages -> Options -> Cleanup Permissions. Select "Make all files writable."This should allow TP or any other mod to have the permissions it needs to install files as well as modify files it needs during installation.

But I have a question...I just went into Packages > Options > Cleanup Permissions and selected "All Files Are Writable."Then I hit the "Change File Permissions" button.But when the screen refreshes, it's back on the "Only the standard files are writable" option.Is this normal?
Quote from: Matthew Schenker on April 23, 2007, 06:50:55 PMOK, I just re-installed a fresh version of SMF 1.1.2, then I installed TinyPortal, and once again the forum was completely wrecked...Menus missing, administration area doesn't work right, TinyPortal menus gone, boards gone, and on and on.Luckily, this was an empty test forum that I can easily delete from the server.I think I'm done with TinyPortal!
