It all seems easy but the installer could not find what it needed so it could insert/replace and when I went to where the code is supposed to be to manually do it, I couldn't find it either.
So then what do you do?

This can happen if you have some other modules that modify that file installed, the authors advice should be followed, or you can post your index.template.php file here for us to fix for you possibly, do you have other themes installed as well? those will have to be modified as well...

i have done the edited for manual installation up till ./Sources/ManagePermissions.php but i am confuse with this final step

Code
install.php
This file should be able to execute standalone.
File Operations
Move the included file "Ads.php" to "./Sources".
Move the included file "LoadAds.php" to "./Sources".
Move the included file "Ads.template.php" to "./Themes/default".
Move the included file "Ads.english.php" to "./Themes/default/languages".
Move the included file "Ads.english-utf8.php" to "./Themes/default/languages".

you only need to manually edit the one(s) that indicate an error in the PRE-install screen or after you proceed with normal package manager install, the UN-install listing... but be warned, if you do this several times incorrectly, you run the risk of duplicating code which compounds the amount of cursing that takes place between you and your machine, lol

I did not say doing this would make those error indicators go away, the module functions perfectly well on my SMF 2.0.8 system, don't give up so easily... we are here to help, did you proceed with a package manager install even tho it indicates problems?

Best Regards,
Bob Perry

immediately i saw the error using the package manager i did not proceed with installation

even my footer is now showing

yet i have not install this mod

Bob Perry of Web Presence Consulting

if you proceed with the install, then proceed that immediately with the edits done CORRECTLY, your users may not even notice the change and you will be able to proceed with setting up the very straight forward options available in this very useful module... if you are not comfortable making syntax free edits to that file just post the source here and it'll only take a couple minutes to fix by someone here, not inclined to do so myself currently, my plate is full at present

should i attach the following files here ?


./index.php
./Sources/Admin.php
./Sources/QueryString.php
./Themes/default/BoardIndex.template.php
./Themes/default/Display.template.php
./Themes/default/MessageIndex.template.php
./Themes/default/index.template.php
./Sources/ManagePermissions.php

according to your first post you are only having trouble with index.template.php in the default theme, so that's the only one needed, when someone fixes it for you be sure and thank them properly and publicly...

Hi

I always try the demo or free version to see if a product will work , the free version does not work on my forum running a novo theme with smf version 2.8.
I realize that i cant expect support for a free mod and do not expect it , however I really  like what i see in your product review and consider this mod as an essential part for my forum.
So my question is - if i purchase this theme , how would i get this to work with my forum if at all possible ? Please note i am not a css expert or programmer.

My website is www.anglersdigest.co.za with links to the forum or you can go directly to www.anglersdigest.co.za/forum ( please note the site and forum is a work in progress )

Many thanks
I just hope that this mod will work with my forum

Andrew

Well, you sort of have to provide some actual information...


"doesn't work" is not an actual error nor is it a useful report.

What exactly do you mean by " does not work on my forum running a novo theme"?
WHAT does not work?
Is there an error message? (if so, what?)
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

See below


Execute Modification    ./Themes/Novo_Blue/BoardIndex.template.php    Test failed

2.    Add After    ./Themes/Novo_Blue/BoardIndex.template.php    Test failed

the following 2 were unsuccessful on the novo theme and hence my question.
If im being an idiot , i apologies , but im prettty new to forums , so please be merciful in your reply

thanks

the test failed just means that your chosen theme does not use the same coding as the default theme...   You will have to find the correct spots in your custom theme's boardindex.template.php file and manually apply the mod changes.
