What's the advantage over Simple Portal or Tiny Portal? 
Title: Re: ezPortal - Portal System for SMF
Post by: vbgamer45 on November 02, 2008, 09:14:39 PM
EzBlocks are extremely customizable they can be created as xml files and shared with others. Supports unlimited parameters for PHP blocks. Built in webpage system. Works on any theme with out modifying the theme. Pretty much all the standard features for the other portals.

Modules coming soon to tie more components together.

With check it out.



Thanks! joomlamz for the translation created a package for it and posted it on the EzPortal site.

Post by: [SiNaN] on November 05, 2008, 03:28:12 AM
I uploaded the zip into my forums but the tables do now show properly any suggestions?

www.eazyeffectz.com

It's because total width is smaller than the width of the page. You may increase the width of the center column (Admin CP >> EzBlock Manager >> Center - Edit Column) and also align the main table to center like this:

../Themes/default/EzPortal.template.php

Find:

Code: [Select]
echo '<table>
Replace:

Code: [Select]
echo '<table style="margin: 0 auto;">

What columns do you have enabled? And what ezblocks under what columns?

I have nothing at all enabled, this problem appears immediately after it is installed.

By default, center column width is 600px and it is aligned to left. It is not a problem actually. But I'd expect center column to span all the area possible in the center.

It's because total width is smaller than the width of the page. You may increase the width of the center column (Admin CP >> EzBlock Manager >> Center - Edit Column) and also align the main table to center like this:

../Themes/default/EzPortal.template.php

Find:

Code: [Select]
echo '<table>
Replace:

Code: [Select]
echo '<table style="margin: 0 auto;">

Thank you [SiNaN] I appreciate your help, I will try what you have suggested and post back here the results.

Is this a problem with this mod, or maybe a conflict with other packages that I have installed?

I have installed quite a few and so far founder a minor problem only with one, that is it won't uninstall unless another mod is uninstall first.

Thank you,

Dazza0101.

I had considered learning how to program in PHP and learning the SMF system, only because I was displeased at the flexibility of what was out there and wanted to make my own portal system for SMF to be more gamer friendly, and to idiot-proof things, as well.  I couldn't tell you how much frustration I went through at times trying to add more and more modifications to my SMF software.

Anyhow, do you have plans in the future to add the following modules:
There's probably a whole slew of other modifications I'd like to see integrated but I can't think of any others right now.  You've done quite a few too, right?

Post by: vbgamer45 on November 30, 2008, 11:56:50 PM
Yup you can create as many as you want. I have some other ezBlocks planned to get the ball rolling.
I have a custom system that allows you to create your own EzBlocks then import them into the system and share with others.
Basic format I have posted so far
http://www.ezportal.com/ezblock-coding-forums/ezblock-format-creating-custom-ezblocks/msg4/#new

Going to be expanding as I add more features.

Basically you can create custom ezBlocks with as many parameters as you want which can be edited using the ezBlock manager.

I have the 0.2 version installed on SMF2beta4 on a localhost(XP+xampp).

No problems with the installation, but in the portal setup, it warned me that the cache-folder was NOT writable.  ???   In spite of the warning, I went through and played around with blocks without any problems....so far.

Cache folder is not really used yet. Later on I am going to be storing more information in the cache folder to make the portal faster for performance.

Hey vbgamer45,

 On my test site the first mod I installed was EZ Portal 0.1 . And now you have anew version out and my old version will not uninstall, do to other mods I have installed.
Think it was three or four files.What I would like to know is does the EZP Mod have a built-in up-grade whatever you call it, or am I going to have to try to do all this by hand?
Realy hope not, as i'm a blind SMF user.

like this ..

root/board

and within the board, is obviously, my SMF installation, and in root, would have my index and portal files? Is this possible?

Admin CP >> EzBlock Manager >> Center - Edit Column and put width 900 instead of 600. Should do the trick.

Now, It's my turn  :P:

How can I change the background of ezblocks? In the attachment 1 the block is gray. How can i change it to orange (like in attachment 2) [i thinks that is the titlebg by the way]

Not currently maybe in the future if I create a version that does not require SMF but intergrate's with various forum software.

I use a dynamic width theme. It looks like ezPortal only supports fixed width themes at this point?
Correct right now ezColumns are fixed width, percent based would make a good feature request/idea for next version

i just installed on local, smf beta 4.0 and this is what i get (see attached)

source code showing, and nothing was active.. i went to the error log and it showed the same thing..

didnt want to push things, so killed the tables in the db, and run a fresh upgraded pack of smf files..

is what im seeing normal for the beta? should i try it again or??

just wondering..  ;)

easyphp 2.0 if that helps and again i get the cache-folder was NOT writable, as you can see in the screen shot i took.. all files should be writeable when using a local environment.. btw.. do you have a viewing for the way your beta looks vbgamer?  :)

Oh I probably should have mentioned, I have the previous version installed on my live site, the same problem exists on my test site using the latest version, I am not sure if this is important to know or not.

I am unable to uninstall the old version to install the new, because I receive error messages when trying to uninstall, I don't mind keeping the old version installed it does all that I need.

Hey VBGamer,

I tryed to make a custom block and realy messed up my site, in fact i locked up my site.
what i need to know is there a way to go to the database and drop that patickuler block. the block in question is a custom php block in the center collum in fact it's the only block in the center, so i need to know where to go to edit the db.
thanks for any help, as a blind user i can use all the help i can get.

ps. what's bad is that i'm the only one who sees the erar as the block is visable to me only as admin.

Gamer,
to start with, this is Mickey, Flip's wife. He asked me to apologize for his spelling, but he has NEVER been good with spelling. :D
I deleted the last TWO entries into that table because they were both for ezblock php. The first one had the "require once" stuff, the second one was blank when it came to the blockdata. Now the site works just fine again. THANK YOU!!!
This is the mod Flip was working with: http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=654 (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=654). He was wanting to make a block that works with this mod, but that didn't quite work the way he wanted it to. :(
We use several of your mods and right now, we're trying to figure out how to use the ezportal page thing. I haven't really looked at it, I work midnights and don't have much time during the day to work on the site. Flip has "read" over the info on it and doesn't understand exactly how to work with the pages. I say "read" because actually it's his screen reader that reads it for him. So, any hints or perhaps a text tutorial (something the screen reader can read) that could help would be wonderful!! The main thing is figuring out what each item in the tool bar is and does.
Thanks for your help,
Mickey

Hey, Gamer (or whoever can help me),
got a question - I'm working with a stand-alone weather program Ham Weather (http://www.hamweather.com), and would like to be able to have a block for it that would show the site's default weather settings for guest/unlogged users and logged users who have not set up a default weather yet. Alternatively, it would show the customized weather for the users who have customized their weather settings. I'm not sure how to pull this off, but if someone could please take a peek at the above site, that would be great. We haven't even figured out how to get a link to the site in yet.
Obviously (I hope), the block would be for EZ Portal, with SMF 2.0 b4. (if the smf version really makes a difference)  :)

As always, lots of thanks,
Flip

Are there any tutorials for using this mod?
And if I enable portal Homepage, how do customize that page? Can you add your own background to it? If so, how?

Don't have any guides yet.

Main settings are setup via the settings page To enable the portal homepage.

To create layouts for the main home page you would do so under Admin -> EzPortal -> ezBlock Manager

The ezBlock Manager controls the creation of ezBlocks which you can use to form your layout for your forum. Wether you want a one, two or three column site page.

EzBlocks have many different functions and we have premade blocks that you can load into your forum.

The main settings for ezBlocks is the visible settings and permissions since that decides what page on your site the ezBlock appears and who can see it.

I'll have to play around with it and see what I can figure out.
At this point, I'm not sure what to ask since I'm not really sure what all this means but when I figure something out, I may be back.

What exactly is the shout box?

A shoutbox is a ezBlock like a mini chatroom instead of creating a form post. It is meant for a quick chat for short sentences and only shows the recent chats.

Meant for example if you see someone online you can make a quick chat in the shoutbox and hope they would see instead of creating a forum post to say or whats up.

To do this go to the ezBlock Manager then click on the edit column link that controls the width of each column. YOu can either do a percent or a pixel width. If you do percent make sure all the other columns are set to percent as well.

Post by: sheryltoo on January 02, 2009, 05:18:21 PM
I have two questions.
First of all, if I add HTML ezblock to the left side, can I customize it by adding buttons and links to the message boards or links to all the tabs that show on a default layout? I'm not sure what I'm suppose to call this area so I hope you know what links I'm talking about.
At this site, it starts with Home, Help, Search, Profile.....
Second, if I add the ezblock recently posted messages and some of the messages are from a board that's only viewable by administrator or global monitors, will anyone be able to see these messages if they're listed on the ezportal Homepage?

Yes with an html ezBlock you can any html/javascript code you wish.

The recent posted messages ezBlock respects access permissions set on each board. You can verify by either creating a test user account or logging out and use a guest account.

Hello! and thank YOU! for a wonderful mod!! I know it has to be something very simple but I just don't know where exactly to look.... I have put the shout box in my left column. But by default the text box to enter your shout is below the shouts..... I really want that at the top... how can I do that ?  again, thank YOU!!!

Currently it would require an edit to the fix. Check out Subs-EzPortalMain.php
Search for the shoutbox and you can just move that code to the start of the form.

Works great on my test SMF 2.0 forum.  The only thing I had to do was re-download the 'blocks', 'ezcache', and 'tiny_mce' folder and it's contents.  Somehow it didn't copy over during the install.  Otherwise, it looks good!

I would place them in an html ezBlock. Unless it is a global style then i would place  the css portion in the themes/themename/style.css file

Post by: sheryltoo on January 06, 2009, 08:47:58 PM
Sorry, I should have been more clear with my question.
I was planning on putting the codes in the html ezblock but I wasn't sure if they <style> </style> tags went at the very top along with the rules.
I know I don't set this page up like a normal html page with <html> <title> <head> and I learned the <style> tags went between the head tags but since I don't include those tags, I wasn't sure where the style tags should go.
This is probably not much clearer, lol, but hopefully you understand what I'm trying to ask.

They would go at the top of the ezBlock before all your html code. This works since the style is loaded before any of your html code that you have below.

I think I see the issue. I think SMF overrides those global selectors like p,td h1 by default

What is the rest of your html code?

I have another question and I hope there's a way to change what's happening.
I've set up 3 catergories at my site and if I open a thread on one of the boards in the catergory, and then click the link above the board that has the name for the catergory, it takes me back to the Ezportal homepage.
Is there a way to make it so it takes me back to the catergory or the forum page that shows all the catergories and message board?
The address I get at the bottom of the screen says either index.php#1, #2, or #3 when I hover over a catergory.

Question - Would it be possible to adjust the % of space the blocks take up?

Maybe the center piece, when used, could be put above the link tree? Or offer an option of above/below said links?

Also, the Member's Online, when centered, seems to be listing the members vertically, which would become irritating with a large group, and make more sense if they were in a horizontal manner... Unless I myself have done something to cause this.

You can control the size of column by editing the column and setting it either to a pixel specific width or a percent based width which should limit the size of the ezBlock

I get this on a fresh 1.1.7 install with no mods, nana, niet, nothing. Strange ?

And check permissions on that folder for MySQL.

First thing I can see is that you installed it twice... you'll have to manually uninstall it. Then, we'll go from there.

Ezportal is installed twice.
The forum looks fine just looks like either the boards/categories are hidden from guests

EzBlocks are extremely customizable they can be created as xml files and shared with others. Supports unlimited parameters for PHP blocks. Built in webpage system. Works on any theme with out modifying the theme. Pretty much all the standard features for the other portals.

Modules coming soon to tie more components together.

Sorry newbie question here

How do i write articles ? are they pulled from a certain forum ?

Does exPortal take on the theme of the forum ? I like the fact you don't have to edit anything for it to work

EzPortal has a built in webpage creator to create webpage for your forum.

If you need an Article System search the mod site for my article system mod.


It takes on the theme of the forum.

You would go to the EzBlock Manager to setup blocks.

You would set the visible options on the ezBlocks to the homepage.

Then make sure under ezPortal settings you have enabled the homepage feature.

Sounds easy enough

Just like that fact you don't have to edit any code to get the portal to work

Is there options built in that show users posts and whos online etc

Is there a button added to the menu bar like forum or home so members can access both easily

Sorry to be a pain your portal looks great and would be a great addition to my psychic website

I see that there is a way to play with the width of the boxes, but I was wondering if there was a way to play with the height? I am using a default based theme, SMF 1.1.7 and a shoutbox of my own from shoutmix.com. I like their features better. Anyways, I loaded the shoutbox into a block and it has cut part of my shoutbox off. I have tried to play with the code of the shoutbox to make it smaller, but it still does it.

No way to set the height the box should expand to the size of whatever html code is inside it. Height is not a supported property for a table data html element.

Hello, and thanks so much for this mod!

I'm sure that this mod is exactly what I need, but I cannot seem to get it working the way I want. I would like it to have a 'home' page when first hitting my forums (which it does, after I enabled the 'ezPortal home page'). However, I cannot seem to figure out how to edit that page. Currently, it's blank. What I would like most is to just create a new board on my forums, and have any post entered there be the latest 'home' page on my forums. You can see what I have accomplished so far by clicking here (http://www.geekbocks.com).

I've looked high and low for any guides to walk me through this process, but I've yet to find a single one. =(

Hi all,
I have just installed ezportal 0.2.4 on my SMF 1.1.7 forum, love it but I have a question.
I never noticed this before on my forum, on the link tree, when you press on any of the links between Forum and the board you are on, it takes you to the portal page.
What would be the reason for this ???

one other question on this mod, how do I get resent posts to show on the portal page when I am logged out of the forum?

I installed the EzPortal mod on my forum. I have created several pages using the Page Manager of that mod.

Now whenever someone goes to one of those internal pages the forum registers a "Unable to load 'main' template" error, however the page looks fine and all the buttons still seem to work fine.

What does the 'main' template do? Is this something that is likely a forum issue or mod issue?


Thanks,

Gary

I just started testing out ezportal before I actually move it to the online forum (I'll have to adapt it to the custom theme and all) so I've been wondering a few things:

- is there a way to have a Board news block display a board's posts as well as its child's ones too?
- is there a way to have stickied topics show up at the top of Board news blocks?
- hopefully, there'll be a way to have a Board news block display more than a board, even if they're not related?

When's the next update coming? Could you manage to fullfill those requests in it?
I'd sure love to finally get rid of the old homepage and use EP to have it linked to the news I'll post on the forum

Ok...   now that I am using this on a fully functional and active site (2.0 RC1), I have the following notes:

The "active tab" incorrectly indicates that the HOME is active, even though I am in the forum

There does not seem to be a way to add blocks to appear UNDER the displayed forum, only ABOVE.

The members online list is always a vertical list with a line break after each name...   I want a simple list with no line breaks

This is the only error I've had so far. I get this error every time the home "portal" page is reloaded - not on any other pages that I've notice. (SMF 1.1.8, EZportal 0.2.5) I think I need to check index.template.php, but I've forgotten. Not sure what to look for on that line either.

Try this:
http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=191122.msg1217068#msg1217068

Only difference, you would use a little bit bigger images, lol. Put the "image" code in your themes index.template.php file, put the images you want in a seperate folder, and your set!  :)


EDIT:
Oh yeah, this is important to. Make sure that the .jpeg file and image files are in the SAME folder, or else it won't work. If there not in the same file, change:
Code: [Select]
$dp=opendir(".");

to

Code: [Select]
$dp=opendir("YOUR_DIRECTORY_LOCATION_HERE");


Hope this helps. :)

ke4obt,

multiple posting just annoys people. Please don't.

You error is likely due to an undefined array definition in one of your blocks. I bumped into this when I tried pasting code form something else into an EZportal block.

Hey Kindred,

Sorry about that, whip me with a wet noodle.

Now if I could get you or someone to take a looksee at my 2 php custom blocks code it would be great, I figure it will end up being the calendar but not sure

code for calendar

Code: [Select]
/******************************************************************************************
*                                                                                         *
* 'Mini' Calendar in phpblock -                                                           *
*                                                                                         *
* Program Parameters/Switches can be specified to change what is displayed and how.       *
*   If highlighting is turned on, only the types of entries which are selected to         *
*   be shown will be highlighted (and have to be shown to guests for guests to see        *
*   highlights). If option of linking the day numbers to calendar event posting form      *
*   is chosen ($date_links_to_posting = true), SMF permissions are in effect and only     *
*   those allowed to post events to the calendar will have this link in effect. For       *
*   $date_links_to_posting = false, and for those not permitted to post events, day       *
*   numbers will link to the full SMF Calendar page. Additionally, if option to show      *
*   a separate 'Post Event' button is chosen ($show_post_event_button = true), it will    *
*   only show for those permitted to post events to the calendar.                         *
*                                                                                         *
* Look for 'NON-ENGLISH' to see section for changing language. This is actually more      *
*   correctly referred to as 'language other than server default' as this Calendar will   *
*   use the server's default LOCALE language for Month and Day names unless overides      *
*   are specified in the code section labeled 'NON-ENGLISH  LABELS, MONTH & DAY NAMES',   *
*   below.                                                                                *
*                                                                                         *
* Once a given day is highlighted, the highlight will not be supplanted. That means       *
*   you may want to modify the order in which highlights are applied in order to set      *
*   desired 'precedence' (i.e. if b-days highlights are applied first, once a given       *
*   day is highlighted with b-day color, it will not be changed to be highlighted         *
*   with event color if an event occurs on the same day; you need to choose an order      *
*   of precedence and sequence the highlighting accordingly by changing the sequence      *
*   of sections in the $order_hilites array. Highlighting will be done in the given       *
*   order.                                                                                *
*                                                                                         *
* Also, if you want the individual B-day/Event/Holiday sections to be ordered in a        *
*   different sequence, you need to change the sequence of entries in the $order_lists    *
*   array.                                                                                *
*                                                                                         *
* Examples of highlighting can be seen in the section 'Highlight colors & backgrounds'    *
*   below. As given, highlighting is done by applying the admin specified calendar        *
*   entry color to the date, bolded, on the default background. Commented example given   *
*   of using bold white on a background box of the admin specified calendar entry color.  *
*                                                                                         *

What's bad is that both seem to work with-out any problems
but sence I have not learned enough about codeing in php it does me no good to look.

Thanks to all for any help

yup... here's your problem:

<font color="'. $member['color']  .'">

I would bet that $member['color'] is never actually set, hence the error message

Thanks Kindred,

Now for the hard part, where can I find a color chart that is done in text format, i.e. "red = #00000 or eeffee", sence I beleave you need to do the colors other than just writing down a color i.e. "blue, green or red" or am I wrong about that.
Also where do I need to change these, under member groups or sence I've got MC Color ledgened II id this where I need to do the changes or better yet do I need to do this in both places or what.
As one of my instructors in school would say:
ABAPITA
Aint
Blindness

Thanks Again Flip

This is a great mod..but it lacks a block for the calendar!  :(
Does anyone know how to add one?

It would be greatly appreciative


TIA

It is a shame no one knows how to do this?  :(

Try this if you are using SMF 1.1.x, apparently it doesn't work with 2.x. Just follow the directions in the top of the code. Hope it helps.

*                                                                                         *
* Program Parameters/Switches can be specified to change what is displayed and how.       *
*   If highlighting is turned on, only the types of entries which are selected to         *
*   be shown will be highlighted (and have to be shown to guests for guests to see        *
*   highlights). If option of linking the day numbers to calendar event posting form      *
*   is chosen ($date_links_to_posting = true), SMF permissions are in effect and only     *
*   those allowed to post events to the calendar will have this link in effect. For       *
*   $date_links_to_posting = false, and for those not permitted to post events, day       *
*   numbers will link to the full SMF Calendar page. Additionally, if option to show      *
*   a separate 'Post Event' button is chosen ($show_post_event_button = true), it will    *
*   only show for those permitted to post events to the calendar.                         *
*                                                                                         *
* Look for 'NON-ENGLISH' to see section for changing language. This is actually more      *
*   correctly referred to as 'language other than server default' as this Calendar will   *
*   use the server's default LOCALE language for Month and Day names unless overides      *
*   are specified in the code section labeled 'NON-ENGLISH  LABELS, MONTH & DAY NAMES',   *
*   below.                                                                                *
*                                                                                         *
* Once a given day is highlighted, the highlight will not be supplanted. That means       *
*   you may want to modify the order in which highlights are applied in order to set      *
*   desired 'precedence' (i.e. if b-days highlights are applied first, once a given       *
*   day is highlighted with b-day color, it will not be changed to be highlighted         *
*   with event color if an event occurs on the same day; you need to choose an order      *
*   of precedence and sequence the highlighting accordingly by changing the sequence      *
*   of sections in the $order_hilites array. Highlighting will be done in the given       *
*   order.                                                                                *
*                                                                                         *
* Also, if you want the individual B-day/Event/Holiday sections to be ordered in a        *
*   different sequence, you need to change the sequence of entries in the $order_lists    *
*   array.                                                                                *
*                                                                                         *
* Examples of highlighting can be seen in the section 'Highlight colors & backgrounds'    *
*   below. As given, highlighting is done by applying the admin specified calendar        *
*   entry color to the date, bolded, on the default background. Commented example given   *
*   of using bold white on a background box of the admin specified calendar entry color.  *

Title: Re: ezPortal for SMF (Now Suppots SMF 2.0) 18+ New Blocks
Post by: quietstorm on February 12, 2009, 10:28:01 AM
This is a great mod..but it lacks a block for the calendar!  :(
Does anyone know how to add one?

It would be greatly appreciative




TIA

It is a shame no one knows how to do this?  :(

Try this if you are using SMF 1.1.x, apparently it doesn't work with 2.x. Just follow the directions in the top of the code. Hope it helps.

*                                                                                         *
* Look for 'NON-ENGLISH' to see section for changing language. This is actually more      *
*   correctly referred to as 'language other than server default' as this Calendar will   *
*   use the server's default LOCALE language for Month and Day names unless overides      *
*   are specified in the code section labeled 'NON-ENGLISH  LABELS, MONTH & DAY NAMES',   *
*   below.                                                                                *

* Once a given day is highlighted, the highlight will not be supplanted. That means       *
*   you may want to modify the order in which highlights are applied in order to set      *
*   desired 'precedence' (i.e. if b-days highlights are applied first, once a given       *
*   day is highlighted with b-day color, it will not be changed to be highlighted         *
*   with event color if an event occurs on the same day; you need to choose an order      *
*   of precedence and sequence the highlighting accordingly by changing the sequence      *
*   of sections in the $order_hilites array. Highlighting will be done in the given       *
*   order.                                                                                *
*                                                                                         *
* Also, if you want the individual B-day/Event/Holiday sections to be ordered in a        *
*   different sequence, you need to change the sequence of entries in the $order_lists    *
*   array.                                                                                *
*                                                                                         *
* Examples of highlighting can be seen in the section 'Highlight colors & backgrounds'    *
*   below. As given, highlighting is done by applying the admin specified calendar        *
*   entry color to the date, bolded, on the default background. Commented example given   *
*   of using bold white on a background box of the admin specified calendar entry color.  *

I have installed it and could see what I put in just fine,
but I am unclear on how to change the it in my template
so it creates my home and forum tabs to seperate it.
I want the portal to be my home page, and to set the forum index
as the second tab. If someone could help me I would appreciate it.
I am wanting to have a home and a foum tab similar to what i have on
my old site  http://ourhangout.smfforfree4.com/index.php
This is what I have in my template now.

Code: [Select]
// Show the menu up top. Something like [home] [help] [profile] [logout]...

Post by: LT07 on February 13, 2009, 02:50:23 AM
Hey great mod, love it ;D

But unfortunately I have a couple of problems :-X

On SMF 1.1.8 the forum crashes (badly) if I enable the home page feature, but only if I actually visit the home page i.e.. mydomain/index.php ... all other pages are unaffected as far as I could tell

My SMF 1.1.8 is installed in the root directory of the domain.

My SMF 2.0 RC1 is installed in a subdomain (forum.mydomain.com) and every time anybody uses the shoutbox ( which is waaaay cool ) gives an error "Unable to load the 'main' template." ... its driving everybody nuts :-*

A fix for the shoutbox would be awesome, I've tried changing themes but it doesn't seem to be theme related as it happens on the default one. any ideas where I should look ?

Cheers <insert missing thumbs up smiley here>

great mod but it need a block where you can put it at the bottom of the forum  there's only center left and right so a bottom choice would be great

yup... here's your problem:

<font color="'. $member['color']  .'">

I would bet that $member['color'] is never actually set, hence the error message

Hey Kindred,
OK, set all the member group colors and I still have the same error,
Was there another place I need to go and change setings?
If not, what am I missing?
Should I just deal with-it till a calendar block is ready  for EZ Portal?

How would I center all chat in the shoutbox?
Also, how exactly could I, or maybe in your next release, in the ShoutBox, if you press [Enter], it posts that text, not does a linebreak, it's very annoying. Maybe an option?

This is a reply to the same question asked by me on SMF Helper from ccbtimewiz,

ccbtimewiz: Alright, I went through and fixed EzPortal's theme_linktree() issue.

Open ./Sources/Load.php

Find:

Code: [Select]
   // Robots shouldn't be logging in or registering.  So, they aren't a bot.  Better to be wrong than sorry (or people won't be able to log in!), anyway.
   if ((isset($_REQUEST['action']) && in_array($_REQUEST['action'], array('login', 'login2', 'register'))) || !$context['user']['is_guest'])
      $context['browser']['possibly_robot'] = false;

   // Set the top level linktree up.
   array_unshift($context['linktree'], array(
      'url' => $scripturl,
      'name' => $context['forum_name_html_safe']
   ));

Replace with

Code: [Select]
   // Robots shouldn't be logging in or registering.  So, they aren't a bot.  Better to be wrong than sorry (or people won't be able to log in!), anyway.
   if ((isset($_REQUEST['action']) && in_array($_REQUEST['action'], array('login', 'login2', 'register'))) || !$context['user']['is_guest'])
      $context['browser']['possibly_robot'] = false;

   // -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
   // + EzPortal v0.2.4 linktree() fix by ccbtimewiz [2/12/09] (http://jeunosky.net/)

   # Just in case... making this a global.
   global $ezpSettings;

   # Does $ezpSettings exist?! If not, set it to false and log NO errors.
   if (empty($ezpSettings))
    {
      $ezpSettings = array();
      $ezpSettings['ezp_portal_enable'] = 0;
    }

   # Are they perhaps running SMF 1.1.x and forum_name_html_safe doesn't exist? If so, let's fix 'em up.
   if (empty($context['forum_name_html_safe']))
      $forum_title = $context['forum_name'];
   else
      $forum_title = $context['forum_name_html_safe'];

   // This contains the "home" of the theme_linktree(). This is set first if no portal page is active.
   # @example: My Website
   if (empty($ezpSettings['ezp_portal_enable']))
      array_unshift($context['linktree'], array(
         'url' => $scripturl,
         'name' => $forum_title
      ));
   // And finally, if the portal IS set, show the forum name and then "forum".
   # @example: My Website => Forum
   else
      array_unshift($context['linktree'],
         array(
            'url' => $scripturl,
            'name' => $forum_title
         ),
         array(
            'url' => $scripturl . '?action=forum',
            'name' => 'Forum'
         )
      );
   unset($ezpSettings);
   unset($forum_title);
   // -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Issue Solved.


On a personal note from me, I was wondering, can this be incorporated into the mod for new people downloading it  ??? so they don't encounter the issue ever again.

I think the problem is not that $member['color'] is not set, but that the $member array is not defined (hence the system tries to call something that does not exist.

I bumped into the same problem with my list events block when I tried to define the colors.

I bumped into the same problem with my list events block when I tried to define the colors.


ok. so, is there any way to "fake" the calendar out by commenting out that line? Or adding a call so that it thinks it's actually there? Or adding something to SMF so that string sees what it's looking for? If so, where and how would I go about doing that?
Otherwise, any clue as to when a calendar block will be available for EZPortal and SMF 1.1.x? (I know that you've been working on one)
Maybe I missed it, but what's the difference between EZP 0.2.5 and EZP 0.2.5.1?

Thanks again,

This is a reply to the same question asked by me on SMF Helper from ccbtimewiz,

ccbtimewiz: Alright, I went through and fixed EzPortal's theme_linktree() issue.

Open ./Sources/Load.php
...

Issue Solved.


I am not sure what issue you think this is supposed to fix... but it does not fix the only issues that I currently have with the link tree.

Currently, in the linktree: CATEGORIES link to index.php#6 instead of index.php?action=forum#6
which means that clicking on a category in the linktree causes the system to send you back to the EZportal hompage.

Adding your code causes the linktree to duplicate itself i.e.  forumname > forum > forumname > forum > category > board and does NOT fix the category bug.
Actually, the version of EZPortal that I have tells me to completely REMOVE the linktree code from that section of load.php

did you set the vissable options for witch pages your blocks show on?
if not right under the block data and vissable options, editor and weather or not the users can colaps the block is a button labeled:
Update Visible Options,
after clicking that you should see something like this:

Hello
Thanks for you help, but I have the same problem, I understand what you say, it works in the forum, in the page of the Portal nothing at all, one question where can I find the adress of my Portal I think the problem comes from this, I think that I do not have the wright adress of the Portal, is the adress of the Page Manager is the same of the Portal?
Title: Re: ezPortal for SMF (Now Suppots SMF 2.0) 18+ New Blocks
Post by: ke4obt on February 14, 2009, 09:06:17 AM
no, what you should have is:
EzPortal Url: http://www.yoursite.com/ezportal/
EzPortal Path: whatever the full path to the ezportal is (e.g. /host/abc/def/ghi/html/forum_root/ezportal/)
check box: Enable Portal Homepage
make sure the box is checked 

well i hope this helps, as i'm still learning.
just let me know and if we can't figure it out then we'll both learn together, how's that?

This is the wife - Mickey
can you give me the "dummies" version? Which file do I need to edit and where should I look for the function?
Flip gets me into a lot of coding I have NO clue where to start :)
I'm learning quickly (I hope). But there are still some things I don't know yet. (just act like I know everything and try to fool everybody - he he). Flip's learning to code too, but since he has to rely on his screen reader, it's taking him a lot longer. (he just called me a name because I said "a lot longer" - but he'll get over it. *evil grin*)
So, if you can please walk me through where to put the code, I will be VERY grateful.

Thanks,
Mickey

ps - Flip guesses at the top of the ezportal.template.php with the other global calls. I have no guess. Just to be on the safe side, I don't let him do any "real" editing of files unless I'm home to eyeball it. :)

filipes,
thanks for approving me. After I log in, and try to go to the portal, it tells me "Ocorreu um erro!
You do not have permission to access this page"
How do you have your permissions set up?
How many pages are you trying to get set up? The reason why is we need to know what all the buttons say. For example, on our site, the Portal is the "main" page. The second button is the forum home.
On our site, the buttons are Home (which is the Portal), Forum (which is the forum index page, of course), help (which is the help section) - those are the 3 "default" links in our menu.
It looks like you have those 3 links and then a link to a totally different forum in your menu. When I click on the portal link, I think the link is wrong - I think it should be http://www.forumemigrante.com/forum/ and that's it.
Do you have the SEF URLs activated in your site?
Quote
I think that I do not have the wright adress of the Portal, is the adress of the Page Manager is the same of the Portal?
No, in your admin area ez portal admin setings your portal url should be: http://www.forumemigrante.com/forum/ezportal/  .
the url in your button pointing to your portal in your menu should be:
 http://www.forumemigrante.com/forum/index.php
and as far as i can tell the portal button is being directed tworeds this url:
http:/   /www.forumemigrante.com/forum/index.php?action=ezportal;sa=page;p=1
and the button in your menu labled Início     is pointing to:
: http://www.forumemigrante.com/forum/index.php
do you have the check box under the portal settings checked
to show the portal home-page?
and can you tell me witch blocks you have active,
so i know what should be there?

Flip

nope.... you should add the $global statement INSIDE the php block with the calendar function.  I am betting that the bad index is coming up because the variable is not intialized within the calendar function.

For some reason I couldn't upgrade to the latest ezportal version using smf 1.1.7 so I decided to uninstall everything and start over.
I still can't seem to get it installed and right now I've uninstalled everything from my downloaded packages yet my forum still says it's being powered by ezportal.
What do I have to do to  make my forum understand I don't have ezportal on it any more?

Just a heads up, the upgrade install was perfect.
The post error has gone but not for deleting posts (that's not important)

Only one tiny problem :)

Internet Explorer is perfect but in FireFox the shoutbox text area is a few pixels too wide causing a scrollbar to appear underneath, probably set to 100% whereas in my case something like 95% would be better.

Is there any file I can edit to reduce the textbox by a few percent?

This really is a great mod, cheers :)

Would someone "please" tell me how I can get ezportal off my site and completely out of my files.
I enjoyed using this mod but ran into a problem when I tried to upgrade. For some reason my site kept giving me critical errors and wouldn't let me install any mod, so it wasn't just because of ezportal. Just something wasn't and still isn't working right on my site so I really need to clean things up but in order to do that, I need to get ezportal off my site and out of my files.

I thought I accomplished it yesterday when I tried to manually remove all the codes that were added to my files.
I tried to remove ezportal.template.php but it took away all the message boards so I put it back and decided I better leave it alone along with  subs-ezportal-convert.php and subs-ezportal-main.php.
There may have been some other files named ezportal but I can't say for sure.
All I did was take out the codes mentioned on the manual install page for smf 1.1.7 and put back the ones I replaced.

After removing codes, my site no longer said it was powered by ezportal but now today it says it again so I have no idea  how to get this off my site.
Would someone please tell me what to do and take into consideration, I don't understand php?

You have to create a file called modifications.portuguese.php (or modifications.portuguese-utf8.php, depending on whether or not your forum uses utf-8)

Shouldn't there be an index file of some sort? ???

Post by: Kindred on February 17, 2009, 07:42:13 PM
no... this uses the SMF index...     the /ezportal directory is used for blocks, etc, but should not be accessed directly.

by installing ezportal, and configuring it, your FORUM index becomes the ezportal homepage and action=forum becomes your boardindex.

sheryltoo:    Did you try using the uninstall from the package manager?
you can't just remove files and expect it to stop...   because there are a fair number of code changes in the SMF files. If you have messed with things enough so that you can not auto-un-install, then you will have to manually uninstall...    go to the mod site and follow the manual installation directions in reverse.

^ no... what I mean is preventing the user from being able to view the file driectory.  For example, if you go to /sources, /theme, /avatars or something like that, you get redirected to the forum index. If you type /ezportal, you can see the directory contents.

I removed a quote in my earlier post to hopefully clear confusion.

Kindred, I tried that and thought I got rid of ezportal but the next day it was back.
I'm wondering if it's because there's files for ezportal still on my site.
One of them is themes/default/ezportal.template.php and I tried to delete it but then lost all my message boards so I put it back.
There's also files under Sources/ezportal.php
Sources/subs.ezportal-convert.php
Sources/subs.ezportal-main.php
And I noticed there's some language files for ezportal.english-utf8.php and english.php.
There could be other files I don't know about.
These must be files that ezportal installs in separate files so I'm not sure if it's safe to just delete them after what happened when I tried deleting the template.php file.

And I really don't remember how I tried to remove this.
I believe I did an uninstall since I was trying to get the latest update installed and that wasn't working so I thought I'd uninstall the old version and start new but everything seemed to have gone wrong.

I'd like to upgrade smf 1.1.7 to RC1 but I'm wondering what's going to happen with all those ezportal files.
I really don't want to carry them over to RC1 until I get everything straightened out.

if you are upgrading to 2.0RC1, then just replace all forum files with the upgrade files. It will remove all mods by doing so.

I just thought I'd tell you I decided to try installing ezportal again and then uninstalling it to see if it would take everything off my site and it worked.
It's too bad I couldn't do this right from the beginning but I kept getting fatal errors when trying to install any mod.
Maybe things are finally looking up.

Just a heads up, the upgrade install was perfect.
The post error has gone but not for deleting posts (that's not important)

Only one tiny problem :)

Internet Explorer is perfect but in FireFox the shoutbox text area is a few pixels too wide causing a scrollbar to appear underneath, probably set to 100% whereas in my case something like 95% would be better.

Is there any file I can edit to reduce the textbox by a few percent?

This really is a great mod, cheers :)

Im having the same  problem with the scroll bars. I was  wondering how to fix that, and make it so the shoutbox refreshes faster. Other than that This is one of the best mods i have on my site.

Hi I just installed a fresh SMF2 RC1 test board and the latest version of Ezportal. I have already come across a problem that, for the life of me, couldnt find any other posts about or a solution to on my own. I added a Shoutbox to the left, and Members Online to the left. My center column seems to span like 3 19" monitors worth of scrolling before I see the right blocks. I tried toying with the center column width/percent settings, and nothing seemed to change it. I have not added/modified any of the themes *using default with install).  When I'm in Admin section, the columns show correctly, but when I go to forum index, the long column comes back.  It almost seems as though my percent settings are not working when I am looking at the regular forums. The problem goes away when I remove EITHER the left or the right block, but when I have a left, center, AND right it goes way off.
Any answers? Thanks in advance.
Title: MISSING FUNCTIONS AFTER PORTAL INSTALL...
Post by: lou-in-usa on February 21, 2009, 11:31:28 AM
I installed EZ portal recently but now in the Admin area I am missing is the reverse posting order option and manage boards returns only a blank page. I upgraded to SMF v1.1.8 and these problems did not change.  Has anyone else encountered this after portal install? What's the problem? I like the left, right and center "block" options of EZ Portal but can another portal integrate as easily with these similar options.
Thanks for the help...

EzPortal doesn't touch those pages. Check your error log for details.

The poll module currently only takes a poll topic id. You would first create a poll topic in the forum. Then grab the topic id of that topic and place that id inside poll ezBlock

Title: Poll problems
Post by: PerryM on February 22, 2009, 02:19:12 AM
Created a poll in the forum and added the ezmodule on the left with the poll number - shows up ok.
 
However a regular user sees the poll but can't make a selection - the radio buttons don't work.
 
Thanks
 
P.S.
Now I realize that the poll is not a voting poll but just reports the results of the real poll in the forum - my mistake.  Thanks for all the help.

Hi,
just installed it and have this warning:
Warning your ezcache folder is not writable! For best performance we suggest having the cache folder writable.

but cannot find where to change it.

Also have this error when in Modules:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in /home/mysite/public_html/Sources/Class-Package.php on line 75

Is this because of the permission error or another?

Your ezcache folder is in your Ezportal main directory. It can be CHMOD'd to '755' permissions.

I haven't installed the new version yet, but did you fix the problem with categories links in the breadcrumbs? (they do not link to the index.php?action=forum#category, but instead link to the index.php#category

Also, when I am viewing a post, the topnav tab indicates "Home", not "forum" (boardindex displays as forum, as does messageindex, but display does not)

My center column seems to span like three 19" monitors worth of scrolling before I see the right blocks.

I don't know if you got your problem solved here or at the ezportal.com site, but I had the same problem - and was happening only in Google Chrome and Mac Safari - though I could reproduce it in all browsers - and here's what I found -

It's the "recent posts" count, at the bottom of the page... if you have that enabled, it will jettison your FORUM menu off about 9000 pixels wide right... Go into your theme set up (it's specific for EACH and EVERY theme - so you have to toggle the one you're using) and turn that feature OFF - and your forum will go back to "normal"...

Question for Gamer - since the SMF site seems to get more action than the Mod site...

I am trying to either uninstall, or upgrade ezportal with the latest release from yesterday - and when I go to execute - it just brings me to the .zip URL and times out on my server.... like so:

http://mysite.com/forum/index.php?action=admin;area=packages;sa=uninstall2;package=ezPortal0.2.6.1.zip;pid=24

*Server timesout)

Anyone ever had this happen? It still shows it being installed and active in Admin... and I really need to remove this - or upgrade - to see about these bug fixes...

TIA -

KB

PS: I'm too friggin tired, grouchy, lazy and blurry-eyed to read 15 pages on this one tonight - Plus SMF "search" is not working either  - so will also ask: Has the Forum Index/Tree issue been raised and/or solved? Meaning, If I'm reading a post, and then click on the tree menu to "go back" (or "up") one level... it takes me to the ezportal menu page... not the forum index page or the "link" I was trying to get at within the tree view...

And speaking of /directories... because ezforum calls out the forum via an action e.g /forum/index.php?action=forum  does this not mess up your SEO??? I only ask, because i recently googled my site name, and it has the ROOT indexed - not the /forum/index.php?action=forum part... and goes into my host ISP "page not found"... kinda odd :(

Nice portal. I was using another portal but got too many errors, so I uninstalled it.

3 requests:

Calendar Block (or code to put in a php block) - I am using the calendar as a "Today in History" type of thing and would like to have it shown in a block.

Random News Block - I filled the news with Quotes (rather than site news) and would like the quotes to be displayed randomly in a block.

As the admin, I see [Edit] and [Delete] on the actual blocks. I can't find a way for me to disable seeing it. I just prefer to do my edits via the admin only. No big deal, just personal preference.

Again, very nice. Thanks.

First two requests are planned in future updates.

Third request is built in as a setting.
EzPortal -> Settings -> "Hide edit/delete options on ezBlocks for Admin's and ezBlock Manager's"

I need help!!!

So I installed and it was awesome.  Then I added the Arcade Block and in that block it said:

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/.sites/143/site2/web/forum/Sources/EzPortal.php' (include_path='.:/php/includes:/home/solarspeed/php/share/pear') in /home/.sites/143/site2/web/Sources/Subs-EzPortalMain.php on line 1967

Becasue I couldn't reverse things, I ended up deleting my whole forum folder and re-installing my back up.

Then I tried to install eZ Portal again, but then it memorized the setting and it said the same thing.

I will upload my .php file noted above.  Can someone edit the Arcade part of it out for me?

Thanks SO much.  I really want to use this MOD.

Just to remind, it is better to use loadClassFile() to include class files, for compatibility with older versions of PHP.

Question for Gamer - since the SMF site seems to get more action than the Mod site...

I am trying to either uninstall, or upgrade ezportal with the latest release from yesterday - and when I go to execute - it just brings me to the .zip URL and times out on my server.... like so:

http://mysite.com/forum/index.php?action=admin;area=packages;sa=uninstall2;package=ezPortal0.2.6.1.zip;pid=24

*Server timesout)

Anyone ever had this happen? It still shows it being installed and active in Admin... and I really need to remove this - or upgrade - to see about these bug fixes...

TIA -

KB


Anyone have any ideas about this? I'm STILL trying to either upgrade or de-install ezportal - and it just goes to the aforementioned zip URL and stalls out... Blank page -

I've tried it on 2 PC's with 5 different browsers - all the same results - Any ideas???

Thanks -

When I turn off the 'all boards and posts' option I can turn off the portal display on the calender page but lose all portals on the board index.  ???

Sorry if I've missed this somewhere in the thread.  I'm wondering if ezPortal has, or will ever have a server query built into it for Team Speak and/or the various game servers.  I'd rather not have to create separate pages, and I'm not a fan of the 'look' of GSC.  There might be options to customize the look of GSC but it'd be easier if something was built in to take on the same theme as the rest of the site.  It's been a long time since I've messed with GSC.

Also, I cannot vote from the poll block and do not have any buttons/edtiing tools in my Admin/page manager area. I can create pages there but not editing tools like shown in the ezportal site's gallery. Hmmmm....

EzBlocks are extremely customizable they can be created as xml files and shared with others. Supports unlimited parameters for PHP blocks. Built in webpage system. Works on any theme with out modifying the theme. Pretty much all the standard features for the other portals.

Modules coming soon to tie more components together.

Does this mean I can parse an xml file such as clickbanks?

one issue and one request...

issue:   in the breadcrumbs list, the categories link to: site.com/index.php#c6 which is not valid, and takes me back to the EZportal page. It should link to site.com/index.php?action=forum#c6

Reqeust:   I'd like for the left column (and potentially the right column) to be collapsible to the left or right as COLUMNS rather than each module collapsing upward into its header.

(i.e. someone can opt to collapse the left column to give themselves a full screen of forum.)

edit: second request:   an EZblock pre-defined for a vertical ul/li of the topnav menu?   I am currently doing it with SSI, but an integral version would be sweet.

Hmmm....   I forgot, I was originally using ssi_menubar(), but it used all of the CSS that made it display horizonal...   so what I ended up doing was the following:

Code: [Select]
global $context;
  foreach ($context['menu_buttons'] as $act => $button)
  {
    echo '
      <li id="button_', $act, '">
        <a', $button['active_button'] ? ' class="active"' : '', ' title="', $act , '" href="', $button['href'], '">
          <span', isset($button['is_last']) ? ' class="last"' : '', '>', ($button['active_button'] ? '<em>' : ''), $button['title'], ($button['active_button'] ? '</em>' : ''), '</span>
        </a>
      </li>';
  }
echo '</ul>';

double hmmmmm....

Ok, Installed EZPortal on a new forum... along with several other mods.
For some reason, the breadcrumbs are duplicated in mod pages...

i.e.
Community > Forum > Articles > Networking Safety

Community > Forum > Articles > Networking Safety
(Same thing happens for glossary and several other mods.)

I have seen this happen with SMF 2.0 you no longer need to call the theme_linktree function inside a mod such as for 1.1.x I will check out SMF Articles for the 2.0 function and see if the theme_linktree is present in the mod files.

hello vbgamer45,

you made a wonderful portal, i love it.
i am using in the central main content area the broad news block. Is it possible to show the first attached picture of that topic floated to the right side of the area?
that will be really something!

is it too difficult to make?

Yes, there IS indeed an image in the attachment. 
Picturs are so important to the portal, that will be a major improvement to ezportal, i just hope it won't take too long time. thank you!

The page currently is only a link. If you want to add a link you need to modify a template or add it into an ezblock

Can a few people using ezPortal give me a link to their site so I can see how it looks. Especially if you have customized it in some way. Thanks in advance.

To be honest... as much as I liked this mod, I think SimplePortal has a "smoother" appearance - You can see it here on 2.0RC1 www.f-1chat.com

I have tried to upload with ezportal built loader but it don't work.

It 's looking like link module loaded is version 1. ...

The problem remain : links in blocks are duplicated from the first block created to the new one ?

This is a reply to the same question asked by me on SMF Helper from ccbtimewiz,

ccbtimewiz: Alright, I went through and fixed EzPortal's theme_linktree() issue.

   // Set the top level linktree up.
   array_unshift($context['linktree'], array(
      'url' => $scripturl,
      'name' => $context['forum_name_html_safe']
   ));

Replace with

Code: [Select]
   // Robots shouldn't be logging in or registering.  So, they aren't a bot.  Better to be wrong than sorry (or people won't be able to log in!), anyway.

On a personal note from me, I was wondering, can this be incorporated into the mod for new people downloading it  ??? so they don't encounter the issue ever again.
I tried using this fix, and it had no change with our link tree, it still took us to the same page.  Our forum runs on 1.1.8 and we are using easy portal version 0.2.8 does anyone else have a fix or idea to try?

Hello

I'm testing links permissions with 1.1.8.

It seems that it's not working when you deny access to a category of links to a specific member group(guest).
 
The link is opening independently of the fact that you deny access to.

I wan to get rid of the "header" block (See arrow)

I also want to change the background color of the block. Right now it's a very light blue. I want it to be white.

Can anyone show me where yo edit to make these changes?

First of all. Great mod! I got it working great now.

I'm trying to install a banner rotator that displays a new banner on each page load or page reload. THe banner shows up but it doesn't link to where I set it to link to and the banner images don't change on reload. It always show the first banner and when I click the link it just reloads the page.

I have 3 different banners and 3 different links and they are all set to the right location. But it still won't work. Any idea what the problem is?

Here's my code.

Code: [Select]
<script type="text/javascript">
var imgs1 = new Array("http://www.magictalk.com/images/mtbanner.jpg","http://www.magictalk.com/images/mtbanner2.jpg","http://www.magictalk.com/images/mtbanner3.jpg");
var lnks1 = new Array("http://www.magicjax.com","http://www.streetofcard.com","http://www.magictalk.com");
var alt1 = new Array("Banner 1","Banner 2","Banner 3");
var currentAd1 = 0;
var imgCt1 = 3;
function cycle1() {
  if (currentAd1 == imgCt1) {
    currentAd1 = 0;
  }
var banner1 = document.getElementById('adBanner1');
var link1 = document.getElementById('adLink1');
  banner1.src=imgs1[currentAd1]
  banner1.alt=alt1[currentAd1]
  document.getElementById('adLink1').href=lnks1[currentAd1]
  currentAd1++;
}
  window.setInterval("cycle1()",10000);
</script>

It's been quite a while with no reply to my issue. So am I to take it that it's not possible to install a javascript in a Box?

Just to show you what I need to work out. If you look at my forum here:
http://magictalk.com/forum/index.php

You'll see I have two boxes. One on the right and one centered at the top.

The one on the top I need to put a banner rotator that will load a new banner when the page reloads.

The box on the right I need a script that will place the images in random order.

I've found scripts that do what I need to do. But none of them will work in the EzPortal boxes.

We're about to launch this forum so I really need to find a way to figures these out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a question though. I edited the poll block code to work with the colored bars mod. I have it set up and it works for me exactly how I want it, BUT it fills my error log up very quickly. Is there any way you could help me figure out where the error is?

My new forum opens this coming Monday so I really need to work out the issue I've been asking for help with for last 2 weeks in this post.

Banner Rotator on page reload
First, I need my box that is centered on the top of the forum to show a different banner when the page is reloaded. Here's the script I'm trying to use:

Link to Script (http://www.designerwiz.com/JavaScripts/bannereffects/single_banner_rotator_on_refresh.htm)

Or this one:

Link to Script (http://javascript.internet.com/miscellaneous/random-image.html)


Random Ordered Image Links

I have a Box on the right side of my forum with smaller Ad images. I need to make the show up in a random order.

Link to Script (With example) (http://ebusinesshelpcenter.com/sitetools/image-random-order-content-free-javascript.php)

These scripts require you to put a code in the HEAD section as well as the BODY of a document. I've tried all the methods I know and so far none work.

I'm willing to use any method to get the job done. I'm just hoping that I can finally get some "Support" for this. I know I'm coming across as desperate but time is running out and this needs to be worked out by this coming monday for the launch of the site.

You can see the forum in question here:
http://magictalk.com/forum/

Can someone please fill me in on how I can get these types of scripts to work in the EzPortal. It's a great mod but if I can't get this worked out I'll have to find something else.

Thanks for your time.

Anything that modifies the head of the template is a theme issue and needs to be placed in the theme files in order to work.

Thank you very much. I think I'm getting very close here.

In my index.template.php file I found the fallowing code that is the block that I need to apply one of the scripts to. It looks like this.

Code: [Select]

  // Show the [Advertising] button.
   echo '<li><a href="http://magictalk.com/forum/index.php?action=ezportal;sa=page;p=1"><span>Advertising</span></a></li>';

The script I need to put in the "Head" section of the html looks like this:

To go in HEAD:
Code: [Select]
<script>

/*
Random-Order content script
By JavaScript Kit (http://www.javascriptkit.com)
This notice must stay intact for use
*/

//1) Specify content(s) to display and rotate
//   You can specify multiple "sets", each displayed in diff. areas of your page

var content=new Array() //sample set 1
content[0]='<a href="http://www.dynamicdrive.com"><img src="http://www.javascriptkit.com/dynamic.gif" border=0></a>'
content[1]='<a href="http://cooltext.com"><img src="http://www.cooltext.com/images/ctb4.gif" border=0></a>'
content[2]='<a href="http://thefreesite.com"><img src="http://www.thefreesite.com/free88.gif" border=0></a>'

var diffcontent=new Array() //sample set 2
diffcontent[0]='<a href="http://www.google.com">Google Search Engine</a>'
diffcontent[1]='<a href="http://news.bbc.co.uk">BBC News</a>'
diffcontent[2]='<a href="http://www.msnbc.com">MSNBC News</a>'


function randomorder(targetarray, spacing){

var randomorder=new Array()
var the_one
var z=0
for (i=0;i<targetarray.length;i++)
randomorder[i]=i

while (z<targetarray.length){
the_one=Math.floor(Math.random()*targetarray.length)
if (targetarray[the_one]!="_selected!"){
document.write(targetarray[the_one]+spacing)
targetarray[the_one]="_selected!"
z++
}
}
}

</script>

To go in BODY:
Code: [Select]
<script>
//2) Call function randomorder(arrayname, space_between_content)
randomorder(content, '<br><br>')
randomorder(diffcontent, '<br>')
</script>

I understand the BODY part will just go in the EzBox.

But how do I put this HEAD code in the index.template.php

I'm afraid I'll need a walk through on this. I've never done this before. I now HTML pretty well but not much about PHP.

Thanks again for your help so far. I feel I'm getting warmer. LOL

I agree. I really want to find out how to just put the javascript in the EzBlock but so far no one has been able to tell me how to do it.

I put a No border on it so no one can even tell that it is an iframe. I don't want to use this solution because I can't figure out how to put a javascript in the ezblock (This part in HEAD and this part i BODY). I can't think of anything else to do.

You can see what I did here. No one can tell it's an iFrame.

What you are trying to do can be done by PHP already.

Code: [Select]
$banners = array(
array('url_to_banner_image_1', 'url_to_site_1'),
array('url_to_banner_image_2', 'url_to_site_2'),
array('url_to_banner_image_3', 'url_to_site_3'),
);

$rand = mt_rand(0, count($banners) - 1);
echo '<a href="', $banners[$rand][1], '" target="_blank"><img src="', $banners[$rand][0], '" alt="" /></a>';

You have to use those codes in a PHP block. Just change 'url_to_banner_image_xx with URL to the banner image and url_to_site_xx with the URL to the web site.

What the heck is a PHP block and where do I put it?

What I think this means is I go to admin/ezblock manager and add the code you gave me there. Is that right?

Believe me, I'm not as stupid as I seem here. But assume I know nothing about PHP because I don't. I do understand how to alter that code for my images and links. But I have no idea what a "PHP block" is.

Ummm, I believe there is a PHP code block or something similar that parses PHP. I'm sure you will see it if you read each block type title.

An example of how to use it:

Code: [Select]
$banners = array(
array('http://www.simplemachines.org/community/Themes/smsite/images/background_logo.jpg', 'http://www.simplemachines.org'),
array('http://somelink.to/a/site/image.gif', 'http://anexample.site'),
array('http://wehavealink.here/and/an/image.png', 'http://this.is/the/url.php'),
);

$rand = mt_rand(0, count($banners) - 1);
echo '<a href="', $banners[$rand][1], '" target="_blank"><img src="', $banners[$rand][0], '" alt="" /></a>';

Hi vbGamer, thanks for ezPortal, have been experimenting with it on my test forum prior to installing on the live site. It's great and works well. Am using 1.1.9 and there were no install issues.

I have set up some Left and Centre blocks and made a web page to show in the webpages block.

My question is, can a webpage be set as the default to show for the Portal HOME page? So far it just shows as a link in the centre block. See below.

(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Flh4.ggpht.com%2F_yEY7jypZa_8%2FSi1xa1mLjwI%2FAAAAAAAACAA%2FNub3tZ3uKv4%2Fs912%2Fezportalinstall.jpg&hash=b7b25c7d7ba1665cb32a1a833fa2e058)

It would be nice to have the page open as the default or when the home page is clicked in the menu.

I dd a quick scan through this topic and could not find it mentioned elsewhere, sorry if I did miss it.

Cheers

Chas

Hi,
just installed it and have this warning:
Warning your ezcache folder is not writable! For best performance we suggest having the cache folder writable.

but cannot find where to change it.

Also have this error when in Modules:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in /home/mysite/public_html/Sources/Class-Package.php on line 75

Is this because of the permission error or another?

Your ezcache folder is in your Ezportal main directory. It can be CHMOD'd to '755' permissions.

I did a search on this before asking and this was the best I come up with. Now, I spent about 45 minutes on the phone with my hosting service to figure out why 1) I was being denied permission to change the ezcache folder to writable as it stated in my warning, and 2) what the purpose of this file/folder was for. They helped me to change my file permissions via the file manager center since my FTP wasn't allowing me to do so, I was getting some kind of 500 CHMOD error saying command could not be understood. Once I changed it, I was still seeing that red warning. I tried clearing my files/cookies, doing a HARD refresh right down to rebooting and doing a system quickie clean up, nothing was working to change this even though I've changed that folders permissions. So I asked if it was because the ezcache folder was a sub directory of the ezportal folder and if I needed to change the permissions on the ezportal folder too. My hosting company said that was not advised as they weren't sure how vulnerable this would make me to hackers and wrong-doers looking to experiment on my site. I heeded that warning. Now I want to know what the folder is for and why I need it to be writable. I'm slightly ignorant to this, so explain to me as well as you can, if you do not mind (analogies work really great for me to grasp a concept). It would appear as though the portal is functioning, but I am not sure if I am neglecting some important kind of feature by not fully troubleshooting this problem I am having or not. I appreciate any help on this matter I can get. Thanks!   :)

Would anyone know a script that will accomplish what this script (http://ebusinesshelpcenter.com/sitetools/image-random-order-content-free-javascript.php) does that will work in an ezblock?

The script displays a set of images and when the page is reloaded the order of the images change randomly. If you look at the block on the right side of my forum (http://magictalk.com/forum/index.php) you'll see what I'm trying to do. I want those ad images to show up in random order.

The script I linked to above won't work (As far as I know) because you have to add a part of the script to the head section of a page. There is no "head" section on the ezblock to put that is there?

siNaN. Thank you for the script you gave me that changed the image on reload. Would you know a similar one that serves this purpose as well?

Thanks

In the Ezportal settings there's a check box that says, "Enable Portal Homepage" and under it there's a text box titled "Custom Homepage Title".

I'm wondering what this is about. Does that mean that it can be my index page? In other words mydomain.com can take them to this ezportal page rather then mydmain.com/index.php?

The custom Homepage title is the title of the window in your browser when you load that page.
It works by changing the text for <title> tag in html

Ah, I get it. So if I was just reading the HTML it would be:

Code: [Select]
<html>
<head>
<title>THIS TEXT</title>
</head>

Ok, thanks for clarifying that for me.

Is there a way to make my index page an ezportal page?

Let me explain why. Right now my index page looks like the forum to some degree. You can take a look here:
www.magictalk.com

As you can see there's the "Sign in" box on the top.

But the "Ad" images don't show up.

I would like my index page (magictalk.com) to look more like this ezportal page (http://magictalk.com/forum/index.php?action=ezportal;sa=page;p=1).

Another problem is if they sign in to the index page I have now it doesn't always work. They go to the forum and they aren't signed in.

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks again.

???   mydomain.com is the same as mydomain.com/index.php

so, yes...   if you have your forum in the root directory, then the EZportal page can be your site's homepage.

On the links block is there a way to separate my links so when you look at the page the links are broken down into categories and sub categories?


Link Category
Link 1
Link 2
Link 3

Link Category
Link 1
Link 2
Link 3

Link Category
Link 1
Link 2
Link 3


Something like what I have posted, at the moment I can create catalogues but they are not displayed and it groups all my links into one big clump with no organization.

any help would be appreciated.

Not currently with the links block but you could make a html block and code the links in that way

Is there any documentation or comments somewhere on how to use ezPortal Page Manager? I can add pages but I don't know how to display them in a block or in the menu so that people can get to them.

No documentation yet. You just use the links it generates and put them in blocks or in posts anywhere

Just installed ezPortal and I love it.  I'm still learning, but the learning curve is pretty quick.  What a great job.  Thanks.  What is the recommended way to start using Google Ads with 2.0 RC1-1 and ezPortal?  I am new to all of this.  Would I just use html blocks or use something like the mod on this site Ad Management Mod http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=255.

Thanks again for any suggestions and for this great portal mod.

I would use html blocks and put the adsense code inside the block that would work the best.

I don't know if this was reported or not, but when you try to view a specific category while the portal home page is enabled, it just redirects you to the portal home page, example:

http://njtransitforums.talk4fun.net/index.php#c7

Is there anyway to make this point to:

VBgamer.... Any update on correcting that?

I figured a way around it by installing the categories mod (it changes the category links into actual pages instead of anchors on the main page) but that's a work-around, not actually a fix.

Hi
I am trying to get a time and date block working in the left column.  I have this working on another forum using tiny portal but want to get it working on a new one using ezportal.  I set it up in a php block and it centers itself on the page and overrides everything else.  If I just use the clock part of the php it will display fine in the right column but as soon as you put the calendar php in it throws a wobbly. Here is the code. Any ideas?

Post by: [A-US]James246 on July 19, 2009, 02:27:39 AM
Hi there,

I made a new EzBlock with EzPortal on my website, and I got the PHP Code wrong.

I only made the permissions for Admins to be able to see the EzBlock.

Now, on my website, all that the Admins can see is that EzBlock and nothing else appears accept for the header, footer and navigation bar.

Everyone else can use the website just as normal.

Is there any way I can manually delete this EzBlock without going via the Admin Panel so I can use my website?

Or do I have to uninstall EzPortal all together and start again? How would I do this?

Thanks!

Any fast responses are appreciated as we have tournaments running and I can't update the website.

You will need to go into phpMyAdmin  inside you databse find the smf_ezp_block_layout  table and most likely delete the last entry of that table to fix the issue

Code: (Find) [Select]
// Setup template layer
Code: (Replace) [Select]
if (!empty($context['linktree']))
foreach ($context['linktree'] as $key => $tree)
if (strpos($tree['url'], '#') !== false && strpos($tree['url'], 'action=forum#') === false)
$context['linktree'][$key]['url'] = str_replace('#', '?action=forum#', $tree['url']);

// Setup template layer

This is probably a stupid question, but where is poll topic ID to be found? For the life of me I can't figure it out.

I take it is a number? I tried adding the topic's name text into the field but it did not work.

Hey Sinan,

I don't have an EZPortal.php.... I only have EZPortal2.php...   and when I ad that code, there is no difference at all. Categories still go back to the frontpage. :(

That code was for SMF 1.1 Kindred. For 2.0 just change all # chars as #c in the code.

if the url to the topic with the poll is this:

http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=293441.0

Then the poll ID is: 293441

just look for the number after the "topic=" part of the url, but stop after the number ends, everything from the after the "." is unnecessary for finding the ID

use the export command in mySQL?


mind you, you will have to do some editing to get each from a mySQL table to be a stand-alone page.

or... you could go into the webpage editor for the specific page(s) and click the "html" button, then copy the code, paste it into a notepad (for MAC users it's called "text editor") document and save it as whatever, then to import it, you could copy the code from the note pad doc and paste it into the new editor for the new site (basically, sorta kinda follow the instructions in reverse )

I thought notepad was a text editor.... it doesn't do all that formatting stuff so i thought it would be best to use it... and it works

Hi
I am trying to get a time and date block working in the left column.  I have this working on another forum using tiny portal but want to get it working on a new one using ezportal.  I set it up in a php block and it centers itself on the page and overrides everything else.  If I just use the clock part of the php it will display fine in the right column but as soon as you put the calendar php in it throws a wobbly. Here is the code. Any ideas?

Code: [Select]

Hi!  I've recently installed this mod (yesterday). It is the first mod I've ever installed.  Everything went fine...EXCEPT, I don't have options in my admin panel to do anything with it.  It seems the mod made an empty box for options, but it's empty.  So I really have no way of accessing ezportal, unless I'm really doing something wrong.

I am using "innocence" as my theme.  Is there some code somewhere I need to add maybe to make it show up?  Any help would be appreciated.  Thank you!!  :)

I'm trying to add an ezblock to a Page i created through the portal.  doesn't seem to work.  Am I messing it up or is it not possible?

Oh, and I added the URL of the page I created as an Action in the ezblocks.

Thanks.
Yeah that won't work at the moment yet.

another question on the RSS block.

I had the feed going to a center block and it really looked nice, like it would on a regular web page.  The only thing I didn't like was the links actually redirect your browser to the target instead of opening a new window with the target URL.  I'd prefer to have the member stay on my site (once I get members lol). 

I had been testing the RSS feeder mod that posts into a topic and for some reason the same feed produced links that opened new windows.  I abandoned the RSS feeder mod for the portal solution because I didn't like all the RSS feed posts showing up in Unread topics.

Any help to get the links to open a new window would be much appreciated.

hey, that's awesome.  Thanks.

Ok, one more.  Is there a way to make the shoutbox block have a little definition between each shout?  It seems to all run together, and even the text input box is quite thin (height).

Please don't take these as complaints.  The portal (and Articles) seems to be giving me what I want for my site.  And I will send you some support if my proof of concept here gets rolling  ::)

well, I will say that the web standard these days to to keep using the same browser window.  It is typically considered bad form to force new windows. (if a user wants a new window, they right-click and select "open link in new window"

oh, I guess I hadn't realized.  It makes sense I guess from the standpoint of normal surfing.  I know when I was testing the feeds myself and of course I wanted to stay on my site, I liked the new window because I could stay on my site, and then just kill the window I was reading.  I can honestly say I hadn't specifically thought about until the new method changed the link type.  From a user standpoint I can see your point.  hmmm. 

Now I'm perplexed, I like the new window option but don't want to look bad.

:)   It's up to each admin and each site, of course...   just presenting you with the facts so you can make an informed decision.


VB....  I love the new stuff...

suggestions:

menu block: allow sub-nav menus (i.e. additional indent)
Menu block: Possibly build a dhtml version of the block (i.e. shrink and expand sub menus, hover over effects, etc)

RSS: a scroller? maybe.... lol.   10 feeds on my site takes up a large chunk of space.

left column/right column: Allow for hiding the column, not just the individual blocks.
I.e. I am viewing a post and want to see it whole screen, I can shrink out the left column that has the menus...   I'd suggest using the SMF standard collapse function, so the cookie remembers the setting.

Yeah, I appreciate that.  I guess I'd like the option because for what its meant to be (an rss feed) I like to offer the content as something to peruse while on the site, but I'm assuming they want to stay on the site primarily so a new window makes that easier in my mind like "here read this and close it" you still within the site.  Obviously they could be getting that news elsewhere (from the source) so my assumption they want to stay on my site seems reasonable.

should be

Great stuff, but only a couple of requests if you could adjust.

1) The open new window link on the RSS only works on the lead link for each news story, the subsequent links all still open in the same window.  Thanks by the way for adding this feature, I really like it, but I was hoping ALL link on the page would react the same way.

2) The shoutbox could really benefit from a line or something that separates each shout.  They are really running together. 

Thanks again.

1. So like the links inside the posted RSS feed should be parsed then make them open in new window? That can be a little tricky will see what I can do.

Um,  I guess.  I don't know how to describe.  I'm attaching a screen shot to this message.  The first link Xbox 360 Price Drop.... (above the picture) opens in a new window now.  However, the rest in that section open in the same window. 

Then the next main link PS3 slims selling early... opens in a new window, and the cycle starts over.

Sorry for asking so much, it's just so close to what I'm hoping for...

Thanks.

the thing is, spaceboy....    the lead link is parsed by the system when the feed is grabbed....     the other links are part of the content and are not identified specifically as "links" in the RSS/XML, they are just part of the body of the feed.

what you are asking is for the receiving system to alter the content of the incoming feed.

Thanks.  I've decided to go ahead and post the feeds without the body.  the pics in the body looked nice, but this gives a nice clean list of links and works the way I'd like them to.  In fact, it allows me to put them into a smaller block which I'm excited about.  Thanks for all the help guys.

Ok, I found a bug with the new collumn collapsing feature.

In edit columns options, even thought the option to enable the collapsing of columns is disabled, the feature will remain enabled anyway, and regardless of if I check/uncheck the feature checkbox, the setting change will not be saved. In other words, if I go in "Edit Columns" options again, the checkbox will still be unchecked.

Also, I'm not sure if it was intended to be this way, but on the portal main page, the Collapse buttons for columns appears right above the middle column and I find this look awful. Idk if this is because I don't use the default theme (I use a theme that is modified directly from SMF default except the user info below the banner/logo was disabled), and It wouldn't affect me much since if I could, I would disable columns collapsing, but this is something you might want to look into

Basically, I tried Ezportal 0.3.0, then I had to revert back to 0.2.9 because I did not want columns collapsing and was unable to disable it

DJ, I just tested it and yes even when it is not enabled, a user account can still collapse.  Good find, yes I don't want them to be able to be collapsed, especially since it could happen accidentally and the user may not know exactly what they did.  However, my collapse buttons were over the left column - left aligned.

interesting... because it works on my two systems.
Although the ADMIN tool does not change state, the system DOES seem to remember the setting.

i.e. I allow the left column to be collapsed, but not the right column. The left column [-] appears, and is usable, the right column [-] does not.

I went in and checked the settings - still blank for allow user and this time after clicking Edit Block, I then clicked the Save Blocks (sorry if i'm forgetting the actual button name)  from the main block manager space and then yes it does work.  So i guess even though they were defaulted to "not allow" i still had to save my settings for it to take effect.

SO, I think it's all good - I did this on my test site, will install and try on my live site now. 

Thanks Kindred for the reply - made me realize I must be missing something.  :)

actually, VBgamer, I noticed that the admin does not actually save/show the current state of the column option...   for my system, it always displays as OFF (unchecked) after I save it.   The state IS correctly stored and usable on the front-end, but the admin state is always off when I view the column settings.

I'm having a problem with using EzPortal shoutbox. When I install it in a block on either the right or left side it places two shoutboxes on my forum.

Here's a screen shot.

(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fmagicjax.com%2Fdoubleshout.jpg&hash=fb3cb0a81ab8d7cd6aa3fa6dd2143f32)

If I click "delete" on either they both go away.

Any idea what to do to fix this?

I think you're right because I looked at the bottom of my forum and it said "Powered by EzPortal" twice.

But now I've got an even worse problem with it.

I went into packages and uninstalled the EzPortal with the intention of trying to reinstall it. But now my forum doesn't work at all!

You can try opening the index.php in the root of your forum
Find

[...]

I do not see such option. I only see Recent, most viewed, most commented and top rated. No most downloaded option and I tried in 0.2.9 and 0.3.0

As for columns collapsing, I reinstalled 0.3.0 and now the option is saved. It's just when going back in the options, the box will always be unchecked no matter what.

What does the permissions look like for each block? Did you collapse any of the columns?

sorry..
i checked that i have 2 admin name
before upgrade i had one
and when i upgrade i put one more
so the confusion was there

now it is ok

just one more question
when i place all the block
it looks neat
when i click at forum
i goes down the block

how can i enable the forum to be in the center instead of going down?

in IE, if you have the contents of a surrounding div too wide for the screen, it will automatically makes the sub-set divs appear under each other rather than next to each other...    so try adjusting the width of the columns to be less than the total width of your forum header.

Thanks so much for the suggestions but it's all still gone. My forum just won't show anything.

It all happened when I uninstalled EzPortal. It installed EzPortal twice to I uninstalled in Admin. Now my forum is just a blank page.

I talked to the support in my server and they said ezportal.php was missing. So I uploaded that and still nothing.

You can see it here.

Yes, I still don't know what the problem was though.

Luckily my forum is new and I didn't have any members yet. So I just uninstalled the forum and reinstalled it.

Working fine so far.

So thanks.

When I set it to only show in the forum, it doesn't.  I don't want it on all pages, I just want it on the index/home page of the forum.  If I set it to all it does show.  I haven't made my own home page yet, I might later.  It's at prettysims.com, lol, remember me I have the download system pro

The links box doesn't seem to work either, the links just sit there unclickable.

Will try to add just forum support for blocks for just the forum index page of the board for 0.3.1

Is the links box using the SMF Links mod or something else?
Title: Re: ezPortal 0.3.0 for SMF (Now Suppots SMF 2.0) 25+ New Blocks
Post by: flutter on September 17, 2009, 06:35:31 PM
No, it says I can't use the links block until I install the links mod, but when I went to try to install the links mod it says it is conflicting with something and I suspect that would be EZPortal.  It also says it could be because it is already installed.  I don't mind too much about the home page, I'm going to create a home page anyway so no worries, though it would have been nice to have the choice.

I tried to add code to one of the blocks to make it a links box, I want to be able to add people's buttons.  The code I tried to add was this

<a href=”http://www.sims3fanatics.com” title=”The Sims 3″ alt=”The Sims 3″><img src=”http://www.sims3fanatics.com/sims3fanatics.gif” alt=”The Sims 3″ title=”The Sims 3></a>

All that showed up was this             "The

This is the button of another site and I wanted to add it.

The shoutbox, if it's going on the new homepage that I will have to create, can't it be a little bigger, can I change the size of it?

It's no good, when I have a home page, a portal page, I don't have a button for the forum so it can't be accessed, so I have to remove that until I work it out. 

Edit*  I managed to get a forum button working when I use the homepage, I hadn't edited the template properly, my error.  It messes up my format though, I use my news scroller and it's now only visible on the forum and isn't on the home page.  It would be much better for me if the tick box that says add only to forum worked, it is there but it just doesn't work.  I'll go back over the parse instructions again but I don't think i missed anything

Post by: flutter on September 19, 2009, 08:19:06 AM
what does that mean?  This is my forum http://www.prettysims.com that's where I want it.  Surely if I create a topic for the boxes to go in it's a) a waste of time as people might not see it and b) defeats the purpose of having it on the forum at all.

Is this not going to work?  I have links I need to get in there, people are linking me and I owe them one back

I get what you mean about the forum, but what good is that?  It is then embedded deep into the threads rather than standing out on the front page.  Is that not possible?

Modify again.

Ok so I picked for the block to be visible on just sims 3 links, not any of my other boards, but nope, it is now visible on every board except the main one, downlaods, etc.  It is in all of my boards, including one I need blank for it's own links.

Are these blocks not flexible in that you can decide where they go?  How do these work?

Now I tried to add a new page just for links but there is nothing to generate a buttom to it.  Are there instructiions on how to use the features in this mod?

I have to double post here as I've found a major issue with this.

I have downloads pro and it's your software.  Since installing ezportal this is no longer working.  I'm trying to add a download and it keep telling me that I haven't got a title in, well yes I have, I've tried a few times and it's the same.  I uninstalled ezportal but now my dopwnloads pro is still broken.  I'm sure you can understand that I have a site full of downloads and this is a total headache to me.  My site depends on the download system.  So can you work out how to fix this please, after all I did pay for downloads pro and ezportal has broken it

sorry, just came in to delete this question as I found that thread and have fixed it, my .rar had too much in it so I split it.

I'd still like a solution to the all over the forum problem though.  In the settings for ezPortal is the radio box to pick where you want it.  I choose forum then go down the list and only check the part of the forum I want it to be in, it doesn't work, it goes all over the forum.  It looks to me like their is a feature there that isn't being implemented.  Is it fixable?

The mod currently supports showing ezblocks on all pages of the forum, or a specific board.
We currently do not have a feature to show just on the board index page/main page of the forum and no where else

I already said I gave up on the having it on the main board thing, so forget that. 

I just want the existing tick boxes to work.  I have set it just for forum and only ticked one box for it to be on one board, it is still on every board, except downloads.  It's even in the hidden admin boards.  Have a look, I only want it on the sims 3 board yet it is on simns2, welcome and every other board on the site.  I just want it to work like it says on the packet, to allow me to tick that box and it does what it should.  What would be the point of hving tick boxes to choose which boards it goes on if you can't actually choose what boards it goes on?

Haven't been able to recreate this issue on test forum.
Have setup a ezBlock which is just shown on two boards and it is working.
Also did the same with the entire column just in case.

No other visible options are checked other than that one board?

I know this is a bit late as you already did the update but I would have loved to have had my links run along the bottom of my forum rather than down the side.  The only option we seem to have is left, right or centre.  Top or bottom would have been brilliant.  Shout box running horizontally across the top of the board and links running horizontally along the bottom.

Maybe you could think of this for the future

The ezPortal disables the forum for the IE users.
And that is already going on for the last two versions!

I personally never use IE and for more then a month the users dropped and nobody complained! When I had a demonstration with a client I figured out that there was a problem with all my boards.

So at the end I went over to another portal (PortaMx), which is much better then this one. Really advanced and a lot of features and the most important one is that it works on all browsers

I have this in place on a new site I just did.  Problem is, I can't find a way to put in the info, e.g links, etc.  Instructions for use would really help here.

I've been in every part of the settings, tried edit on the ez block, everything, but there is no way to input info into the blocks.  Where do I go to actually put info into them and how do I do it.

It worked before when I tried out the old version although that had different problems on another site.

In IE explorer the shoutbox is an smf articles block.  I have updated to the latest that was meant to fix the IE issues

I can send you a link if you want or need it

I've just found out I'm having issues with the site permissions loading.  i can't get to them.  It's been loading for about 20 minutes now and I can't get to set all of the permissions as I get a partly blank page.  See screenshot, this is after 20 minutes

If you want to add your own custom content to a block you would most likely use an html block then post the html codes inside the block.

As for the site permission that looks like a theme issue try the default theme

So what is the link block for and the articles blocks?  Why cant we put information into them?  I don't understand this at all.

I thought, if you put a links block in it's for links.  I also thought if I put an article block I could put articles in it.  What are all the other blocks for then?

Those other blocks require other mods to be installed.
So if you want the links block to work you need to install SMF Links
If you want the articles block to you need to get SMF Articles

The blocks themselves for articles,links,gallery don't allow you to input information. You would setup the information for them in each of the mod sections.

The blocks just allow you to format the information and select the information that should appear in the ezblock

well trying to sort it out has messed up the whole forum.  I had to uninstall and reinstall to see if it would get it going.  The parse instructions didn't help as I don't have some of the files it says I should.  When i reinstalled I lost the forum button.  I can't even get it to go back to default for some reason.  It looks like I'll have to start all over and reinstall the entire forum.  I did actually try just clikcing into links and articles on the menu but I couldn't do a think with them.

What about the shoutbox changing to an article block in explorer?

Awesome mod, hats off ... it's working great on the site. I've looked and I apologize in advance should this be here but I can't find it so I'll ask. In admin - forum errors this error is filling up in the list fast! I cleared it last Monday and today there are 112 pages with the error below:

8: Undefined index: class_url
File: /home/*******/public_html/smfforum/Sources/Subs-EzPortalMain.php
Line: 1912

All users, same Line:1912

Any ideas on how to correct or maybe point me to the thread that this has been discussed. TY very much in advance!

Fixed for next release.

Hotfix
Open that file

// Load the language files
if (loadlanguage('classifieds') == false)
loadLanguage('classifieds', 'english');
Add after
Code: [Select]
if (empty($modSettings['class_url']))

Ok, I reinstalled the entire forum and the mods again.  I now have links working as well as articles, which is no good lol, as I don't hav tiny portal (is it even compatible to have both?).  Anyway all going great and I shook the dust off dreameaver to built my own, yeah I'm lazy, lol.

I go in to change the blocks to html and hey presto, I have no ez portal configuration panel.  That has disappeared and I now have links and articles.  Now I added all of the code in parse, even the ones that were marked as not essential, yet no ez portal now.  It has to be working as the home page is still there, but I can't get in to work with the blocks.

Any idea what's went wrong?

I don't have this file for EzPortal

./Themes/default/languages/Modifications.english-utf8.php

It isn't in the easy portal folder and it isn't in languages.  It says I don't need it but I still can't get this working.  Now I have the configuration in admin but I've lost the forum button.

Everytime I make the cnagges I add something then lose something else.

So now it's just the forum button that won't show.  I've used all the parse instructions except the one I named above as I don't have it.

Woohoo, I got the forum button up.  Course now that I've enabled the portal homepage it's now a board index, yep, I have two of them now.

I'm struggling here to get this thing on the go.  the top and bottom blocks don't seem to work either.

I'm using a custom theme, well default with a new style sheet.  I fixed the forum button by using the parse in the custom theme index.template as opposed to default.  Should I do this with any of the others?  I mean should I put the parse instructions into file in the custom theme rather than default and if so which ones to get this working.

For the top and bottom columns you need to enabled them in order for them to work. You have to click on the "Edit Column" link in the ezBlock manager.

By two board index pages do you mean two home buttons or forum buttons?
Do you have the portal enabled? under Ezportal -> Settings?

blocks.  I do use the block manager, I have the shoutbox up and I have an HTML block up.  I can't get the blocks to go top or bottom, they just aren't visible.  I can get them left, right and centre but not top and bottom.  It's ok on the portal homepage but I did want things I could put throughout the forum, like below the boards, etc.

Is there a setting for the shoutbox?  To change the order of chat.  It seems the chat shows the last comment first and it's usually the other way round.  It's sort of upside down.  Maybe I did something wrong.

Also, if I create a page, does it make the link or do I have to actually build a mini website in freamweaver then work out the links for myself, like put them on a list or something?

It's ahrd to read that way, it's the opposite of the norm.

What about that additonal pages?  How do I link them?  Is it a list I have to make?  Not sure how I'd do it at all.  I'm not used to building sites around a forum I usually just do them all myself so this is really different from me.

How do I know the URL (I ralise that likely sounds dumb), how do I know what to put in the link?

The page manager in ezPortal allows you to create custom pages.
When a page is completed inside the page manager listing will list the page url's that are generated.
You can then put those links inside a block maybe a menu ezBlock would be the best.

Quick question...

I have ezPortal   LOVVVVVE ITTTT!!!  Thank you!!!

Just wondering if there's a way to put a "friendly url" in the pages? I guess for google (SEO) purposes?  Or you think the "title" would be enough.


Oh and ps.... would love the option to toss a block at the 'bottom' of the forum.  ;D

hi fluffmama,

The ability to add a block at the bottom should already be in the current release.

As for so called "Friendly" URLs...   Those are 99% irrelevant to SEO. What *IS* important is alt tags for images and title tags for links.

Hello,
I apologize if this has been answered; I searched for the terms "home page" and "page" and didn't come up with anything.

I, the EzPortal Page Manager, I created a page with text links that I want to be my forum's home page, but it doesn't show.

Could someone tell me step by step how to create a simple page and then set it as the new home page?

Thanks,
Mike

Pages can not be set as a homepage by default with ezPortal for now.

What you could do is add a html block that is only shown on your ezPortal homepage. Copy the html code to block's data and use that.
Or you can create a bbc ezBlock and just create the post/page using that editor

Couple quick questions....

I installed ezportal maybe a couple months ago.  Not sure if it's been updated since, but I'm assuming it has since you mentioned the option to put blocks at the bottom is there.

Here's my issue...I had moved my forum from one domain to another so had to uninstall and reinstall my theme.  I copied all other files over and all went relatively well.  My issue now is that when I click a link in a ezportal box, it logs me out of the forum.  I thought I had made all correct adjustments to my theme after I reinstalled, but it seems something went haywire.

If I uninstall ezportal, and reinstall it, will it keep all my information and pages and blocks I've created?  I would hate to lose everything.  :(

If you uninstall no information from your ezBlocks is removed so you are safe to install a new version.

Ok uninstalled and reinstalled without a hitch  :D

Howeverrrrr....not sure why, or what the issue could be, or even if it involves ezportal...but....

I have links in some of the boxes, and it is still logging me out when i click a link.  Didn't do that originally.  This is NOT because of updated version of ezportal...I believe there could be a hiccup from re-installing the theme.  I thought I got the file mods taken care of, so not sure what could be causing this.  Any ideas?

This is happening right on my index page, any link I click on.  www.playacespoker.com/smf

In my error log...this is what i'm getting for almost every action....
 (ex. http://www.playacespoker.com/smf/index.php?action=admin,  http://www.playacespoker.com/smf/index.php, http://www.playacespoker.com/smf/index.php?action=login   just to name a few)

But here's the error:

Quote
8: Undefined index: current_action2
File: /home/content/t/h/e/thenewpokerpot/html/smf/Themes/innocence/index.template.php
Line: 371

Also, not sure if it will help, but here's the area of my index.template.php file that has that manual change.  This is from my theme file...

Code: [Select]
if ($context['current_action'] == 'theme')
$current_action = isset($_REQUEST['sa']) && $_REQUEST['sa'] == 'pick' ? 'profile' : 'admin';

// EzPortal if (isset($context['current_action2']))
$current_action = $context['current_action2'];

        // Are we using right-to-left orientation?
if ($context['right_to_left'])

Hope this helps.

Some of your links are missing www.
http://playacespoker.com/

Instead of http://www.playacespoker.com/

Which would cause you to logout since it thinks it is two different sites. Unless you enable subdomain independent cookies I think

Can EZ Portal place Google Adsense Ads in a script block BETWEEN
postings ?

I am looking for a Portal software that can do this.

PortaMX I am currently using can not do this and as
SMFAds Mod will probably not be further developed I need
another system that can put blocks between postings inside the forum,
not just at the borders, but between the postings.

Which Portal or other MOD can do this and will be compatible with SMF2.0 RC2 ?

Many thanks.

I don't think any portal mod does it, afaik. You need to do it from a theme, changing Display.template, like I have done in my Pegasus theme. In there I have put the option to insert html code within "current theme settings" which is shown either between each post, or under the first post only. Of course any tracking of clicks etc. isn't done, like the ads mod does.

I see,
I will have a look at your Theme and also will look at what VBgamer will come up with.

Will there be also the possibility with VBgamer´s admod to  let different membergroups
show different ads, so
for paying subscribers there will be no ads and for guests there will be always ads to be displayed ?

This would be an important feature that just a theme modification probably can not do.

Or can one set different themes for different membergroups ?
Just have to see, if this works somehow...

Many thanks.

Yeah that looks like a host issue.
What you can do is copy the EzPortalInstall.php to your root directory of your forum then run it that way.

Hi,

Please help me with my implementation for the EzPortal for my forum website.

I have installed the ezPortal on my forum & I want to separate the ezportal from the forum. So under the EzPortal settings, I have tick "Enable Portal Homepage". However I when I have done that, the "Ezportal Homepage" has taken over the URL of the forum. And now the url of the forum is:
http://jmcove.com/ezportal/index.php?action=forum instead of just http://jmcove.com

I want my forum at the top of the domain & the EzPortal on a sub-folder or sub-domain.

Example:
http://www.jmcove.com [Forum URL]
http://portal.jmcove.com [Portal URL] or
http://www.jmcove.com/index.php?action=portal [Portal URLl]

Thanks. Sorry for showing the url here, I know that I am only allowed to post links or URL when I have more than 10 posts.

Yeah ezPortal is not yet standalone maybe one day in the future so you can have it another directory that is a long way off though

No I didn't want to have the EzPortal as a standalone. My explanation is no good, I hope you understand I mean.

This is what I have done so far
I had select the "Enable Portal Homepage" settings & when I creates the ezblocks, I set the Portal Homepage as the only Visible Areas. So by doing the above , I have separated out all the ezblocks from the forum. All the ezblocks are only shown on the Portal Homepage

However by doing so, the Portal homepage has overtake the original URL of my forum & becoming the main website or homepage.

If there any way to rewrite the URL of the Portal Homepage so that it's another page of the forum but not becoming the homepage. I need the forum as the homepage. The reason I wanted so is because not to affect the SEO.

no... as I said, none of the portal mods allow you to do that. All 4 of the portal mods set the forum to action=forum.

It would have a dramatic effect SEO wise if the mod changed the board url, but it does not. It just replaces the board index url. To give an example:

Before you install the mod:
Board Index: http://www.yoursite.com/index.php
Board 1: http://www.yoursite.com/index.php?board=1.0
Topic 1: http://www.yoursite.com/index.php?topic=1.0

After you install the mod:
Board Index: http://www.yoursite.com/index.php?action=forum
Board 1: http://www.yoursite.com/index.php?board=1.0
Topic 1: http://www.yoursite.com/index.php?topic=1.0

So it is just the board index url changing. Board and topic urls, means the content, is not affected at all. I haven't seen any negative effects of moving board index to ?action=forum in several of my forums.

no... as I said, none of the portal mods allow you to do that. All 4 of the portal mods set the forum to action=forum.

There is at least one portal mod I know of that has full standalone support. ;)

I did that. My server's error log is also clear of anything related to the website. I again tried to install it, and again it failed and the logs were all clear.

When I tried to install it via the link option, it said the following:

Quote
An Error Has Occurred!
Although the package was downloaded to the server it appears to be empty. Please check the Packages directory, and the "temp" sub-directory are both writable. If you continue to experience this problem you should try extracting the package on your PC and uploading the extracted files into a subdirectory in your Packages directory and try again. For example, if the package was called shout.tar.gz you should:
1) Download the package to your local PC and extract it into files.
2) Using an FTP client create a new directory in your "Packages" folder, in this example you may call it "shout".
3) Upload all the files from the extracted package to this directory.
4) Go back to the package manager browse page and the package will be automatically found by SMF.

Post by: zimode on November 13, 2009, 04:45:37 PM
I've been using EZ 0.3.0 on SMF 1.1.10 for a while.. a great MOD!

I've used the HTML block for iFrame and some other spec stuff works perfectly..

I'm trying to use it  to embed a script from TinyChat:

<html>

<body>
 
<!--////START TINYCHAT EMBED////-->
<script>
var tinychat = { room: 'xxxxxxx' };
</script>
<script src='http://tinychat.com/js/embed.js'></script>
<div id='client'></div>
<!--////END TINYCHAT EMBED////-->

</body>
</html>

But nothing happens.. I'm not a GURU or anything so..basically dense.. any thoughts on how to get it to work..

<script>

</script>
<script src='http://tinychat.com/js/embed.js'></script>
<div id='client'></div>

That's when I tried the iFrame.

Many browsers will not allow cross-domain scripts...

In other words, because your javascript is calling content from somewhere else (not your own site), the browser will prevent it. (at least any browser with proper security settings sill do so)

I would try either a manual install next. I did a couple google searches but haven't found anything else that would seem to cause it. Could be timing out from the website when it tries to install or a file permission issue.

I have been experimenting with portals and like this one the best except for one thing, my site uses faux_apple and the other part of the site has wordpress with an apple styled theme, all these themes give a feeling of space but ez portal doesn't do this it crams all the blocks together so they run into each other, and makes them hard to read, or understand where one block ends and the next. Anyone know how I might edit this?

It's weird - I had it up and running using iFrames and now it stopped working.. I set up a separate HTML file that I access via iFrame.. When I just use the HTML file (outside) EZPortal it works.. within EZPortal no such luck.. Using the HTML Block -

<CENTER>
<iframe
width="650"
height="620"
scrolling="no"
align="top"
frameborder="0"
src="http://www.xxxx.com/chat/videochat.html"></iframe>
</CENTER>

Here's the HTML file..

 <html>
<body>
<!--////START TINYCHAT EMBED////-->
<script>
var tinychat = { room: 'xxxxxx', login: "tc", bcast: "restrict", api: "none", join: "auto" };

</script>
<script src='http://tinychat.com/js/embed.js'></script>
<div id='client'></div>
<!--////END TINYCHAT EMBED////-->

</body>
</html>

Really would be cool to embed TinyChat into the forum - hopefully it can be done either EzBlock or PageManager..

any suggestions?

When I view the page source.. the chat source looks pretty much the same as what was in the ezBlock..

Scott, hope you see this.  I'm using ezportal and don't have simple portal.  I find ezportal to be more flexible.  I tried simple and it put too much up there that I would have to sort out, with ezportal you choose from the outset what you want and it was easier for me, a newbie, to set up.

Yes, it does allow you to create a homepage that is seperate from the forum and in doing so you also get a forum button that takes members to the forum.  You can create multiple pages wioth it.  If you install vbgamers other mods, like links, articles, gallery, you can have everything you need.

Hope this helps, only one way to find out if it suits you, give it a go.  You can't have simple portal and this one but you wouldn't need simple as this does what you need.

Just downloaded the update and my real reason for popping in here was to say thank you to vbgamer for all your hard work and continued support and development for this mod.

I'm still on the hunt here.. not giving up!

So if I copy the .js script over to my domain that may clear it up.. the problem is I can call it from my HTML page.. and it works.. both are referencing the script on another domain..tinychat.. and both my domains are a sub-domain on a web hosting service (bluehost.com)

my domain for the forum is  xxxxforum.org
my domain for the HTML is   xxxx-sol.com/chat/

The xxx-sol.com/chat works (videochat.html), but when I try to use the iFrame to reference as a source it doesn't.. But I swear I had it working for a while.. then "poof" ..

Try this adding a a package server
http://www.smfhacks.com/index.php/topic,15.0.html

Go inside your forum Admin -> Packages- > Download Packages
In the Add Server page
Enter Server Name: SMF Hacks
for Url enter: http://www.smfhacks.com

And click Add Server

After that the page should refresh and the package server should be listed click on the "[Browse]" link then find ezportal inside it and click download

is there a way to make the 'portal' page to be a separate page in the root directory??

The way I have my forum set up is www.mypage.com/forum/index.php. I was hoping to make the portal page www.mypage.com/index.php or www.mypage.com/portal.php.

Is this possible? or would I have to move my forum scripts to the root directory?

ok, good to know. I'll just have to watch for it.

And last question: I want to add a blog to my forum (wordpress I think.... dunno really, hubby picked it out) and I was wondering if I could somehow use the ez pages to apply the SMF forum themes to the blog. I'm not entirely certain it would work, but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask.

Sorry Ravyn, no....   this portal let's you create pages, etc... but it does not apply the forum theme to other pages (this is a portal, not a CMS)

Yeah, I kind of figured that out after I really got into it. I felt like a dummy after I figured it out. heh...

But I found some nice alternatives! Looking at the SMF Articles thingy. looks like it might do the trick!

Great mod!

In Visible areas option I want to select some block to be shown only at forums home page. Can it be done?

Current selection is from Help, Search, Profile…. and there is no HOME to select.

I am using mod with SMF2

Wondering if ajax chat integration shoutbox can be shown inside ezportal blocks.

There should be a "Board Index" visible option near the top which will show only on the board homepage

Ajax chat maybe can be added to an ezblock the code would need to be moved from the template into an php ezBlock itself

You would need to edit the database to do that and change the autoincrement on the column back to one this can be done though phpmyadmin

EzPortal is great. I like the setup & layout, as it's looking very awesome. However, I do have one minor problem.

I'm getting this in the error log
Code: [Select]
http://generation-now.net/forum/index.php?action=ezportal;sa=addshout
8: Undefined index: shout
File: /home/generati/public_html/forum/Sources/EzPortal.php
Line: 2646

 http://generation-now.net/forum/index.php?action=ezportal;sa=addshout
Unable to load the 'main' template.

These two happen to appear at the same time. This only seems to appear, when the shoutbox is active. When there is no shoutbox, then this error doesn't occur. Thing is, I see no visible issues or problems, other than the refresh time for the shoutbox doesn't work. Despite a time being set for it to work.

I'm using 1.1.11 btw.

So far, I am really wanting to use EZPortal with SMF for my website.

The problem I am having is getting blocks to show on the pages I have made using the page manager other than the Portal Homepage.

I have been trying to make custom actions, but just am not getting it. So far, I have created several that I can not delete.

I can not find any info in any of the tutorials I have read or the boards searched. I must be missing something really easy.

Oh yes please if that wouldn't be too much trouble.  I was considering going through all your files to find the code for the visible options and see if I could add something to the code itself.  Maybe add visibility checkboxes for page 2, 3, 4, . . . etc (at least 10-15 pages) since page numbers are already present in the code.

The version of SMF I am using is 1.1.11 which is what my web hosting service provided as an installation package.

Two more requests but they don't need to be done in any hurry.  I've worked around them and my site is doing quite well. These things could just make page construction easier for everyone.

I found out something pretty cool, thought I'd share it if anyone was interested. I been trying to get a Content Rotator Block working, and EZPortal did it no problemo.

I just created a html ezblock, and inserted the code from the 2 blocks of code at the link below, into it.....

http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/featuredcontentslider.htm

Upload the 3 files to the root and its done.

I did change the content rotator css block size to percentages for size.
And added the full URL of the 3 files I uploaded into the script...

Basically 3-4 blocks of whatever I wish,  rotating in 1....I used the top left rotator box at Dynamic Drive....Quite a Space Saver!

I found a bug with both recent topics and recent posts EzBlocks:

I have both setup on a forum page so one show 250 topics and the other 250 posts. However, they fail to show that many: The first shows a random amount of recent topics between 23 and 35-ish, while the other shows a random amount of recent posts between maybe 100 and 130, or something like that. Not sure if this is random, but you should look into that maybe, since some people with very active boards may want to have like 1000 recent replies to show in one single page, if they have very active boards and members who don't visit frequently.

Bug in action:

http://www.omnimaga.org/index.php?action=activity

Despite both being setup at 250, none shows 250 at all.

I also posted something regarding this on the EzPortal site, but in case it gets missed I wanted to post it in the mod topic here too.

NOTE:

SMF 1.1.11, tested on two boards, including the one I linked to above. On the other one, I tried with no other mods installed. Hosting provider is 1and1 (shared hosting).

Must likely what you did was enable Portal under Admin -> ezPortal -> Settings

In order to have items appear on your homepage. You must add ezBlocks under the ezBlock manager and set their visible settings to appear  on the Portal Homepage

vbgamer, back again.

I can't figure out how to place a block on a specific board.  Is that possible?  If so, where do I make the selection?  All I've been able to find so far is the ability to chose Right, Left or Center.  This is gonna make things a lot easier!

Thanks!

Yes it is possible.

Edit the ezBlock there should be a link near Visible areas called "Updated Visible Options"
Just make sure you have  just that board selected and nothing else.

I feel like I have to be missing something easy. For some reason, the basic html editor is not showing when editing the custom EZ pages.  Is there a box someplace I need to check?  On my other website, that editor is working fine and I can't figure out what I did differently.  Most current version of EZ portal on both websites and using SMF 1.1.11

Check that the tiny_mce folder in in the ezportal folder and that is not empty.

I'd like to put HTML code, at least live links, directly into a post on a specific child board.  If that's possible, how do I do it?  I'm using EzPortal, and when I've created an HTML board, it hasn't been presented or counted by SMF as a Topic or Post.

I don't know if that is ezPortal related. Sounds more like a theme edit to include the links inside a post.

yes, the folder is there and it is full of items.


Another question. How would I put content onto the portal home page without using an ezblock?

If you use firefox you can check for errors under toots -> error console when the html editor is loaded.


An ezblock is required to place content on the portal homepage.
You can create your own content with a html/php ezblock

yes.

Most mods do not actually remove themselves from the DB...  because the way to upgrade to the new version involved uninstalling the old version and we don't want to lose all our data.

Post by: DJ Omnimaga on March 09, 2010, 05:45:20 PM
I found a bug with both recent topics and recent posts EzBlocks:

I have both setup on a forum page so one show 250 topics and the other 250 posts. However, they fail to show that many: The first shows a random amount of recent topics between 23 and 35-ish, while the other shows a random amount of recent posts between maybe 100 and 130, or something like that. Not sure if this is random, but you should look into that maybe, since some people with very active boards may want to have like 1000 recent replies to show in one single page, if they have very active boards and members who don't visit frequently.

Bug in action:

http://www.omnimaga.org/index.php?action=activity

Despite both being setup at 250, none shows 250 at all.

I also posted something regarding this on the EzPortal site, but in case it gets missed I wanted to post it in the mod topic here too.

NOTE:

SMF 1.1.11, tested on two boards, including the one I linked to above. On the other one, I tried with no other mods installed. Hosting provider is 1and1 (shared hosting).
I will check it out to see what it is doing.

Any updates on this?

Btw in some occasions, I noticed it shows lower than 20. I even seen a case where it only showed the last 15 active topics. Tested on both a forum with NO mods and one with mods, both running SMF 1.1.11

I also upgraded to EzPortal latest version, still the same issue.

Post by: Kindred on March 09, 2010, 07:27:19 PM
if it is based on SSI,  then that is the problem.

SSI is not intended to pull that many posts and has a built in limit of something like 30 or 50.

In other words, the SSI function only searches that last 50 or so most recent messages and pulls the ones that fit the criteria (the user has permissions to see or the board specified)

Can you imagine the server hit if SSI polled the entire message base... or even 250 most recent messages?

Hello

Having a small problem with the News Topic ez module in which you select a Boards to be posted and it shows on the main page. In the set-up it allows you to select multiple lines (multiple Boards) that you can show however when saved only the information from the board on the first line of the selection is shown and no subsequent info from other selected lines!

If you need any more info then let me know

I should also add i am running RC3 and 0.3.8a portal

Thanks

Wow! ezPortal is a wonderful mod, excellent work, kudoes to the developer! :)

I've installed it on a 1.1.11 site mostly to create web pages (and that editor is fab, btw) for our site and wondered if there is a way to allow non-administrative membergroups the permission to edit pages created by ezPortal? 

Obviously I don't want to grant them all Admin access to the forum itself, which is the only way I've seen to do it thus far? Any ideas?

Yeah, I tried that. An error message occurs: "You are not allowed to administrate this forum."

My apologies, I obviously wasn't clearly describing my question. Let me try again.

I have ezPortal set up to provide webpages for our forum (which is for text-based role playing games, http://newlegends.net if you're interested. Guests can't do much but look around, though). I have the pages listed in the Links section (SMF Links of course!). Members can read the pages, but they cannot edit them. It would be extremely helpful if they could edit them, for the way we're using them.

However, every way I configure the permission for the membergroup results in either A) the error message I included above or B) WAY too much administrative access to the rest of the forum. :) 

Have I missed something?

I was just adding it to my site. I think I got it fixed... I used myphpadmin and added new rows for "visibilepages" in a couple sections...

Site is back up, but the only issue I still notice is that a new button for "Forum" did not appear on the menu bar. "Home" is still there, but if I set up a homepage, there will be no way to get to the forum except for a link that I would add... I'm sorry, it's getting late, I hope that made sense... LOL

Also, is there a way to disable the "global headers and footers" mod on the homepage?

Ah that may explain if manually installed and if the database tables were created in the past it never upgraded them to the new version.

Sorry, me again...

Will you take a look at my shoutbox? It's all the way at the bottom of my site...

www.fordranger.net


Is there any way to make it left aligned instead of centered?

Currently no option to display categories from the gallery.
But you can choose recent pictures,random pictures,top rated picture blocks from SMF Gallery

can it be done with some PHP coding or something? i don't know much, but is there a way to pull the categories (like the vertical menu module) and display it within a PHP block?

Yeah it could be done with php to get a category list you would need to call the gallery_cat table and get the title/ID_CAT

i want to, try &  create an ezportal module which displays and links to existing gallery categories...so that it automatically updates when new categories are added..

(i can ofcourse create a HTML module and do the same but i will have to update it if a new cat is added or one is deleted)

thanks

Quick question, this is my first mod install.  I logged into my FTP from my forum and when I test the connection i get:   "FTP connection established" 

Will it automatically chmod if I proceed?  Or do I have to do it?

If it asks for FTP and accepts it it should automatically do it.

I guess it can not automatically do it even though I am logged in and the connection is established.

I was able to chmod the following files to "666" with my webhost

The following files need to made writable to continue installation:
/forums/Themes/default/languages/Modifications.english.php
/forums/Themes/default/languages/Who.english.php
/forums/index.php
/forums/Sources/Admin.php
/forums/Sources/Subs.php
/forums/Sources/ManagePermissions.php
/forums/Sources/Load.php
/forums/Sources/Admin.php


But I can not find / chmod these files.

I still get the error:

"You cannot download or install new packages because the Packages directory or one of the files in it are not writable"


These are the file I can not locate (probably since ezportal is not on my file manager.

It is also the folders as well. Since the package manager creates ~ files for each file it edits.

There should be under admin -> package manager -> options a  way to reset all file permisions

Obviously it doesn’t work that way.

I have setting
Disabled portal home page.
If I want module to be displayed at mypage.com I need to select  All Actions and Boards.

Then module is published on every page.

If I select “Forum” then it is not showing on mypage.com but it shows on other pages.

Only if I select boards then I can publish module at particular board.

Yes, then I get module published when viewing particular board. That is ok.

When Portal home page is not enabled if I select Forum I do not get module published on Forums first home page.

Forum is used to display on all boards/topics.
Board Index is used to dispaly just on the forum homepage/board index
Portal is used if you have portal homepage enabled under settings.

I tried to find an install guide before asking, but nothing came up... so please bear with me!

I installed ezPortal (www.cpcwiki.eu/forum , 2.0RC3), everything went seemingly fine, but... then what? Nothing seems to have changed! How to get going?

Thanks!

It should right in the admin area. There should be a menu option. If it is not check that the package installed in the package manager.
Also check by going to http://www.yourforum.com/index.php?action=ezportal

Well, it went just fine using the package manager to upload it after we had downloaded to our hard drive. :)
All tests passed.  :D

Suggestions?  Um, an operator's manual.  ;)   ;D

I just have to figure it out.  :P

Yeah I have a guide planned. Mostly you would use the ezBlock manager to add ezBlocks to your forum.

Install went well - no problems at all. Configuration is pretty simple and self-explanatory.

Good job! Thanks for this :)

hellow, im using 2.0 RC3 and i've just uninstalled ez portal, not because this mod is bad. but because i decided to not use portal on my forum. =)
so i uninstalled it and there's no error when i run it. But, when i go to cPanel, i've found "ezportal" folder in home directory. i tried to delete it but it cant. the folder wont removed and still there, complete with it,s content.

then i use cPanel's disc space usage to delete that folder, then appear text said cannot remove because permissions is denied.
i really confused, what perms? because chmod is already 777.

please help me, because this folder is annoying and with 4,78 megs, removed it will be better

hawd,

I have uninstalled, I have some other problems with other stuff.

I also have a ezportal folder. 

Usually, if a folder can not be deleted, it is because one or more file from that folder is being used.

Are you sure that the uninstall is complete?  You can double check by using the parser.


THIS IS JUST A EXAMPLE ------->

Sources/an_example.php

Find:
*this is a sentence

Replace with:
*this is a incomplete sentence

Find:
> the color blue

Add:
and red

<---------END OF EXAMPLE


The way I check, is to go backwards.

I open Sources/an_example.php

then I look for:
"and red"
if it is there, I remove only "and red"


then I look for:
"*this is a incomplete sentence"
if I find it, I replace it with:
"*this is a sentence"


I call this a manual un-install.

If the un-install went okay, and you go backwards, you will not find the things in the files.

Be careful and of course, ALWAYS BACK-UP BEFORE you change anything.

actually, the mod does not remove the folder during the uninstall...    as for manually removing it, you would have to use your cpanel file manager probably... because of the way your host has php permissions/ownership set.

Hello!

I got to know of ezportal just yesterday (from one of the SMF forums I visited yesterday that is ezportal modified). When I tried to follow the ezportal link, the following page says I am a banned user!  :o
Any reasons for this to happen? have you banned any series of IP addresses? I am with Airtel's Broadband service, and it is one of the biggest broadband providers.
Kindly help.

Hawd,

I installed ezPortal on a new forum that has 4 other mods on it.

ezPortal installed with NO problems

I set up a front page and some blocks

I then un-install ezPortal with the package manager by going to Browse Packages [Uninstall]

Then I deleted ezPortal with the package manager by going to Browse Packages and selecting [Delete]

Then I logged in to my host, and used cPanel to locate a ezPortal folder using File Manger- > www -> forum

Then I clicked on the name ezPortal and selected Delete.

"Are you sure you want to delete this folder and all files underneath it?"

I clicked "Yes" and the folder is gone.

Howdy people lol, but see i have an issue with the ezPortal mod, see i love the mod so no worries there just every time i try to put a marquee code within a new page in the ezPage section, note: i have a news box i wrote a while back and was inserting it into the page via the html option button with in the word editor, i was wondering if there was either a problem with my core coding of the ezPortal codes or if it just doesnt support marquee codes yet.

Thanks for the help, ezPortal is an awesome mod, no problems so far with exception of the html problems in the ezPage new page editor. :] keep the great work up guys

i noticed this when i updated ezportal to latest version the collapse/expand images on blocks are a bit misaligned - thought it was my custom themes fault but i just happened to click on Curve theme and its the same on that theme too, its nothing major but does look a bit odd having the image pushed up to top instead of center vertically aligned and doesnt keep consistancy from portal to forum

(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi943.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fad275%2Feotsdzine%2Fezportalupshrinks.png&hash=ed61fde4f2f06edecaee4e69b6a0ccc1)

Hiya - new user so sorry if this has been previously discussed.

Im trying to use these 'buttons' with a JS rollover code

http://www.semperx.com/images/links/linksnavi_off.htm

As you can see it all works properly

I've pasted the code into an "Ez Blocks" HTML module so it will be in the center column, but its all wiggy:

http://www.semperx.com/forum/index.php

As you can see its certainly wiggin out. I think its some kind of coding problem when it get pasting in but I am at a loss to figure it out.

Any help or workaround would be GREATLY appreciated!    Thanks

Good evening everyone,

Well I am having a problem that I just can't seem to resolve. I'm not that experienced with PHP so I figured rather then spending another 8 hours looking for the answer I would request the assistance of the experienced members of SMF forums.

Basic setup
SMF 2.0 RC3
ezportal0.3.9b

What Im trying to accomplish
I am trying to display the body of a single post inside a EZblock. I've managed to get this working when using a normal test.php document

Code: [Select]
<?php require("/home/content/v/e/r/vermillion2083/html/aim/SSI.php"); ?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
</head>
<?php $post ssi_fetchPosts(14NULLNULL);
echo 
$post[0]['body'], '<br />'?>

<body>
</body>
</html>

but when I copy the same code that works into a php ezblock I get the following error (which displays inside the EzBlock):

"ezBlock unable to run PHP syntax error!"

I have no idea what to do as I've tried a multitude of variations to rectify this problem with no success. I am trying to keep this post simple for the readers benifit, but if I have left out any vital information please let me know and I will post it as soon as possible.

Thank you to everyone who takes the time to assist with this issue!

why do you have a full HTML page defined in there?

Code: [Select]

$post = ssi_fetchPosts(14, NULL, NULL);
echo $post[0]['body'], '<br />';

why do you have a full HTML page defined in there?

The only reason I had the entire webpage definition was because as I said I got the code working in a dreamweaver designed web page to prove it could be done, then tried to directly copy the code over, but it failed to work. I originally had it set up with only the three valued as you have above (or atleast I thought) but I must have had something slightly off that resulted in me attempting to code in a web designer to prove the concept possible.

Code: [Select]
require('/home/content/v/e/r/vermillion2083/html/aim/SSI.php');
$post = ssi_fetchPosts(14, NULL, NULL);
echo $post[0]['body'], '<br />';

This worked perfectly, thank you! I wish I could identify what the difference between my original attempt and this one is (not what I posted by my original attempts). Thank you again, have a great evening!

But it's not saving any of my Visibility Options or User Access options.

When trying to install on a fresh 2.0RC3 (MySQL 5.5) I get the error:
You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'TYPE=MyISAM CHARACTER SET utf8' at line 5
File: D:\WEBFILES\forum\Packages\temp\EzPortalInstall2.php
Line: 35

This also seems to be related the errors I get when trying to install SMF 1.11, and Aeva 1.3. Since 1.11 gives the db errors on install as well, I have a sneaky suspicion that it's related to MySQL 5.5 and how the db files are being installed (note that the 2.0 installer seems to work fine when installing).

Hi once again thanks for a good mod but still no go.  I checked all the modifcation coding to the files and checked that all the files are uploaded to the appropiate directories.  I also checked the DB and the tables are there.

When I go to Page Manager and click ADD Page it takes me to the forum
When I go to Edit Settings and enable the ezportal or try to make any changes to the settings on the check boxes it takes me to the Forum.
Same with the Ez blocks.

Is there permission settings that I am missing. Also what permission settings should the ezportal directory be, 775 or 777?  TIA>

Do you have any url rewriting mods enabled? If so I would disable rewriting of actions and see if it helps

I have no clue what you just said. Did you want me to set u up with an adminnaccount so u can see on our website?

Hi.  It's is RC3.  Your ad mod was installed first. Then your gallery mod and now your portal mod.  That is it.

I'll be honest since 1.XX.  I never could trust the package manager and every time you upload a mod it changes files and you really don't know what is going on.  I like to manually do it and I keep a track of what is going on.

FIXED!  We run on dedicated servers.  Well we bought another dedicated server and our hosting company said we could continue working on our site until the new dedicated server was ready and they would migrate it and let us know.

Well no one let us know.  So we have two copies of the website on two dedicated servers.  No one let us know the site was migrated.  So we were updating the old site updating coding using our old IP on the FTP and wondering all the while why it didn't take on the forum which was on the new IP.

LOL.  Thanks vbgamer.

Quick question.  I could not find the answer for it here.

I understand the blocks and how to use them

But I created a Page with the Page Manager.  Basically a page titled 'test' with the word 'test' in the body.  I don't see that page anywhere.  How do I utilize that.

Basically I want a basic page like the ezportal page website.    boxes on the left and right and a page in the center.  TIA again for a GREAT mod.

Basically you would take the link to the page from the Page manager and just use it where ever you want like link to it in a post add a menu item for item for it etc

Man I'm stupid please help me.  I don't get it. 

I want it like EZportal.com.  Your middle section page is what I'm thinking the Page Manager is for, right?

Can you give me Kindergarten steps please?

typically an img tag is <img align="center" src="blahblahblah" title="image title" alt="image alt text" />

it's a self-closed tag, if used properly.

Heres my question.  I do not use the side blocks.  I just want to use the Page Manager. What im trying to figure out is how to show an actual thread on our board in that page. 

That way when some one comes to our site they see the page with that thread and can click on it to be taken to the actual thread in the forum. I just dont want to have a link in the page but actually show the thread.

See what i mean?


Like this thread.

http://www.ezportal.com/announcements/ezportal-0-3-8-released!/

Its on their front page and if you comment on it it takes you to the actual thread in the board

I've been running EZportal for a while now and I love it but I have run into a issue that leaves me scratching my head.

I created several html blocks some for adds and some for facebook. The ones that I placed ads in worked great but when I post the code I need for facebook and update the block it does not save the code and leaves it blank. I even went back and tried to add the code after one of the banner ads and same thing it wont save that code into the block but it will keep the ad code. 

Here is the code I am trying to add and hopefully someone can help me figure this out.

Code: [Select]
<iframe src="http://www.facebook.com/plugins/likebox.php?id=user id goes here&amp;width=150&amp;connections=4&amp;stream=false&amp;header=true&amp;height=287" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" style="border:none; overflow:hidden; width:150px; height:287px;" allowTransparency="true"></iframe>
Thanks is advance for any help you can give.

"user id goes here"

second... iframe?   ICK... naughty coder.

yes I put the user id thing there so my id wasn't showing. As far as iframes its all facebook has to offer for simple the other way requires a java script language and will take some editing of the templates and I am trying to stay away from that.

If you know of a better way to add this let me know here is the facebook info

hmmm.... this iframe generated by facebook doesn't include a userID and doesn't use likebox.php, it uses like.php
I think you have the wrong code... try again at: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/plugins/like

This works for me....

Code: [Select]

<iframe src="http://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.40konline.com%2Fcommunity&amp;layout=button_count&amp;show_faces=false&amp;width=100&amp;action=like&amp;font=arial&amp;colorscheme=dark&amp;height=20" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" style="border:none; overflow:hidden; width:100px; height:20px;" allowTransparency="true"></iframe>
.
.


but I see no reason that you could not use the javascript in an HTML EZBlock... hmmm....  but you are right... it doesn't seem to work.

-edit- I found out why it didn't work. You have to register your site in the facebook applications...   and the app registration seems to be broken right now

I was able to get that code to work but I had to turn off tiny mce for the input. Once I turned it off everything worked perfect. Thanks for the info you gave me.

Now i do have another question :)

Can you have recent posts from a certain board instead of all the boards? I would like to have the option to use both so I guess another block would have to be created.

The odd thing is: I have disabled the eval int he smf admin...   so, why is it continuing to give me the eval error?  I can't track down the actual error with that. :(

And why does the error keep trying to load double urls like: http://www.MYSITE.com/community/index.php?http://www.MYSITE.com/community/

Well the eval is part of the blockcode which is used to execute/run ezblocks

For double urls are you using SSI anywhere on the site?

I'm trying to insert a PHP block.

The code I am using is -

Code: [Select]
// Make a MySQL Connection
mysql_connect("xxxxx", "xxxxx", "xxxxx") or die(mysql_error());
mysql_select_db("resortdb") or die(mysql_error());

// Get all the data from the "example" table
$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM rci")
or die(mysql_error()); 

echo "<select name="menu1" class="style13" onChange="MM_jumpMenu('parent',this,0)"><option selected="selected">Please Select A Resort</option>". PHP_EOL;
// keeps getting the next row until there are no more to get
while($row = mysql_fetch_array( $result )) {
// Print out the contents of each row into a table
echo "<option value='rciprofile.asp?id=";
echo $row['Column1'];
echo "'>";
echo $row['Column2'];
echo "</option>". PHP_EOL;
}

echo "</select><br><br>";

// Get all the data from the "example" table
$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM table_ii")
or die(mysql_error()); 

echo "<select name="menu1" class="style13" onChange="MM_jumpMenu('parent',this,0)"><option selected="selected">Please Select A Resort</option>". PHP_EOL;
// keeps getting the next row until there are no more to get
while($row = mysql_fetch_array( $result )) {
// Print out the contents of each row into a table
echo "<option value='rciprofile.asp?id=";
echo $row['resort_id'];
echo "'>";
echo $row['resort_name'];
echo "</option>". PHP_EOL;
}
echo "</select>";
mysql_close

Excuse my poor coding but I am new to PHP. I know it works though as have tested on a page. ANyway when I veiw the ezportal page, I get "ezBlock unable to run PHP syntax error! "

Any ideas ?

I have installed ezportal 0.4.0 on my SMF 1.1.11 system. The blocks seem to work fine, but I cannot, for the life of me, work out how to use the Page Manager. I would like to add a page called "Book Store". So, I clicked "Add Page" and put in the content I wanted. So far so good. Now Page Manage shows my new page in its list with its title as a clickable hyperlink followed by the URL:

Code: [Select]
http://mydomainname.com/forum/index.php?action=ezportal;sa=page;p=2

The problem is twofold:

1. Check the permissions for the page make sure your membergroup is checked.
2. There is no built in tab system you would need to create a tab or use the link in a hyperlink to allow people to visit the page.

I have the Recent Posts block active, however, because I have the MultiForum Mod installed, my Forums URL varies; eg:

www.mydomain.com/a
www.mydomain.com/b

etc.

So, when I click on a recent post link, I get told this:

Quote
An Error Has Occurred!
The board you specified is located on a different forum

What I would like to know is this; is it possible to edit the code below, so as that it takes into account the forum URL, instead of just the action:


Code: [Select]
'link' => '<a href="' . $scripturl . '?topic=' . $row['ID_TOPIC'] . '.msg' . $row['ID_MSG'] . '#msg' . $row['ID_MSG'] . '">' . $row['subject'] . '</a>',
URL A:
MYDOMAIN.com/ooc/index.php?topic=24.msg86;topicseen#new {This brings up the error, as the thread is located at the next URL}
MYDOMAIN.com/admin/index.php?topic=24.msg86;topicseen#new {This is where the thread is ACTUALLY located}


Thank you.

I have a little with php syntax... My question is this...

I have a PHP script the references a css, php, js, and images all uploaded to a directory "/X" and it works fine for me if I upload to a page outside of the ezblock but once I paste into a php ezblock I am getting syntax errors...

Do I need to add the files referenced to the ezportal/blocks directory for everything to work correctly?

Here is the working example:

I'm having problems with the ezportal ezblocks. I originally created links of supporting car sites for my site on the right side and used the shoutbox and other functions on the left side. Everything was fine and lined up until I started creating a center block just for the "ezportal home page" not the forum. All of a sudden the blocks became HUGE and now the left block is above the forum and the right block is below it. I went in disabled everything, tried refreshing it, even messed with the size of the blocks width and percentage, making them only 100 width and 10 percent to see if that would shrink them. Before this bug/problem I even remember the blocks sticking nicely in the admin panels even. Now they are above and below it. They are stuck at an enormous size for some reason and won't go back to the left and right sides. Can anyone help me here? Has anyone had this problem before?

here's the forum... OH YEAH and I wanted to add that on my ezportal homepage (index) they are a correct size yet when I access my admin panel or just go on the forum that's when they are huge and above and below on the page.

Link to a page where this occurs? I would check to make sure your content inside a block if you are using html/php block is not causing to get large.

0.4.2
!Fixed two bugs with Rss Feed ezBlock in the fsockopen fetch the query string and processing the headers
!Fixed a couple bugs with column layout. If you had just the right and left block enabled but not the center block could cause the layout to appear stretched

Hello
 
I am having a small problem after updating to the new ezPortal 0.4.2

When I am on my main page to my forum all images in my portal blocks work
but when I open any other of my boards it only show a red X & no image
 
I right click on the image to find out it's path as to why it's not showing
and maybe to copy some images to a new location if needed.
 
But I can't as I am faces with the little problem, it shows in the folder path
that index.php is a directory in the link
 
image path looks like this on the main page
myforum.com/smf/themes/images/default.png
 
and looks like this in anyother boards
myforum.com/smf/index.php/themes/images/default.png
 
So I know why the images do not show but I need to know how to correct
the path to the image in my other boards
 
Cheers

GO TO admin>EZBlock Manager>HTML ezBlock> & then adding what ever I want with included images.
I was taking note that when in the admin panel all the images was still showing as well.
& the images only not show in other boards

I'm running 0.4.2 on 1.1.11.

I've set up a poll, which I've added to a poll-ezblock.

This works, and allowed me to cast my vote from the block.
When I had done so, it showed me the results...so far so good.

But it doesn't offer me a link to the original poll, and it seems my vote has changed the block., since now others only see the result, but can't vote?

(vbgamer45) I understand you have helped (Djehuti) with his problem.

I have looked at my EzPortal Polls to see if I could have a look at the coding but as it's apart
of EzPortal I couldn't find any coding for it. I looked in my DB as well & find the block but no coding.

if you have the coding so that it can be added to a block, could you maybe post it or attach it
so that I can have a look and try and help.

I have also been to (Djehuti) forum & had a chat with him. nice bloke,

because the poll view is to only see the stats of the poll and
will not let you vote from block it self all he is wanting is maybe
the title to the block to also work as a link to where the polls are held & to be able to
make a vote from there.

I didn't know where to go to make a vote without him posting me a link him self.
so all he is looking for is the make something clickable to go to the polls url

cheers

only partly works but didn't for most images. 3 images are working again. I also tried deleting the block & re-doing it fully
but still when moving away from the main page to look at posts the images stop working.
only on the main page & admincp, the images work. everywhere else they don't.
I will close this problem for now, if you can think of anything else let me know
in the mean time I will go over my install of EzPortal when i have the time.

thanks for your help with this

Thanks for re-phrasing my issue Techno.

I guess a link to the topic would suffice...voting from the block itself would be an interesting extra... having an option to choose between the two when setting up the block would be the ultimate construction  ;)

Anyways, thanks for stopping by, I hope Vbgamer can provide us with the code; it shouldn't be that hard I guess?

Is it possible to use EZPortal for my current home page and integrate into SMF without using a redirect, (EZPortal take the place of my current site index page without using re-directs)?
And also must the EZ blocks have a visible border?

Thanks

EZportal installs as part of the forum, which means that your forum would have to be placed in your root directory.

As for the borders...   check the CSS using firefox + firebug.

Hello,

I'm currently trying out both ezPortal and ADK portal to see which one I want to use.

With this one:

I'm having problems with the:
Top Posters block- The Avatars shown do not resize to any predefined restrictions thus a user with an avatar size of 150x150 disorients the user with an avatar size of 100x100. I know they can be disabled entirely but that isn't a route I'd prefer to go.

Poll block- I ran the search and read all about how it's meant for show only, but I'm not so sure I believe that. The block itself has the radio buttons for your vote and says "Vote now!" or something to that effect. Any ideas when/if this may be fixed?

Also, are there any additional sources to simply download additional blocks (such as Top Karma, etc...) because I don't know anything about writing PHP.

don't have ezPortal and ADK portal installed at the same time. that's how I stuffed my forum
I had ezPortal installed for a long time then installed ADK portal and I found I had to do a reinstall
of all my mods including ezPortal to fix the problem I had.

Hello

trying out your portal atm and stumbled over this post in here, asking for images from attachment being able to be displayed on the front page if you use the one board of the forum for news like post. The post is from last year and I was hoping of it being implemented in some way or another, but I am unable to find anything.

Basicly I want the attached picutures to show not only on the board (the thumbnails showing directly in the post there), but also on the news section of the portal page.

Maybe thats not even the right way todo something like that, but I want an easy way for my users to get news posts up and pictures in it are mandatory at that point.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks


hello vbgamer45,

you made a wonderful portal, i love it.
i am using in the central main content area the broad news block. Is it possible to show the first attached picture of that topic floated to the right side of the area?
that will be really something!

is it too difficult to make?


I could do that if there is an image in the attachment.

WOW, you could do that!
Yes, there IS indeed an image in the attachment. 
Picturs are so important to the portal, that will be a major improvement to ezportal, i just hope it won't take too long time. thank you!

OK, I got this working through another mod (Inline attachment). Using the bbcode from that one in normal posts, shows the pictures on the front block nicely.
