Hello @rjen,

Thank you for your answer :)

I tried that but I have this error:

Sorry, your PHP configuration doesn't have support for "package_no_zlib". Without this, package_no_package_manager cannot function. Please contact your host about this for more information.

This is why I'm looking for a manual install of the mod (and maybe other mods; didn't try any other).

@rjen

What version of SMF are you using?

Reason I am asking is that TinyPortal is hooks only for 2.1... in 2.0.x you will needs to make changes to SMF files...

I'd ask your host to install zlib. Mod installs without it will suck no matter what.

Well, we manage our server by ourselves; problem is that the tech admin is very busy and I'm not used enough to manage a new compilation of PHP 7.4  :'(

The strange thing is that I was running this test forum with SMF 2.0.18 and mods could be installed, on the same server with same config.

Confusing...

Arantor

New compilation? You manually compile PHP as opposed to using any of the server distributions that have it as just a package install?

In any case, the package manager functionality was overhauled in 2.1 so zlib is now a hard requirement to use the package manager, when it previously wasn't.

OK I understand. So I'll have to wait his availability to go further.

Yes, we have to run different versions of PHP because we actually use vBulletin 4.2.3 which requires PHP 5.4, and we have to make several upgrades of vB then PHP then vB then PHP... until vB 4.2.5 and PHP 7.4. And only then we will be able to migrate from vB to SMF or phpBB (we are testing both simultaneously to see which one fits the best our needs).

Thank you for your answer, in any case :)

Is anybody else noticing the "Print" link when selected in TP settings for the latest version in SMF 2.17 isn't available for guest traffic? I only see it available for myself as admin.

Is it possible to change number format in Tinyportal blocks to match with default forum format?
Now Tinyportal format is without using of digit separator, for example, my Tinyportal stats block displays:

Total Posts: 23639
Total Topics: 1361

But I would to be set as default:

Total Posts: 23,639
Total Topics: 1,361

If you go to here https://github.com/Tinyportal/TinyPortal/blob/850b51dd9d1038450d70fdbc6053e5bf389b659c/Themes/default/TPsubs.template.php#L385 and change
$modSettings['totalMessages'] to
comma_format($modSettings['totalMessages'])
And the same again for totalTopics it should do what you want.

Thanks, fix applied and working :)

Hi All,
I have a question about Tiny Portal. I've never used it before today and I was hoping to set up the Shoutbox with nothing else visible - Can it be done. Once I'm comfortable with looking at how it works I'll most likely expand it.

I have a small forum just starting out and would like to try group chats between members.

@rjen

Yes that is possible: deactivate all other blocks and set the Frontpage setting to go directly to the forumindex

Reinstalled TP 2.1.0 in clean 2.0.18, retained previous settings.  Getting a lot of these -

File: /home/breamall/public_html/TinyPortal/Integrate.php

TP appears to be working ok.  Can fudge out the error, but would prefer to know what's causing it.

I need to look at what I haven't done with trying to get Shoutbox to display on its own with blocks Deactivated and set the Frontpage to go directly to Forum Index. I'm still looking at what I need do to get the Shoutbox to display. Any pointers where I need to look. I have installed Tiny Portal and it installed incident free.

lurkalot

You don't need to hide panels etc, just move the shoutbox to a top, or bottom panel and turn all the other blocks off in the blocks manager.  You'll need to choose layout 3 or 4 in shoutbox settings for the shoutbox to display across the page.

If that is the only active block none of the other panels will display.

mcsee

Thanks lurkalot - It seems like getting this Shoutbox working is beyond me, so I'll put it in the too hard basket for now. I've tried different changes and no idea what I'm doing now. Thanks.
