NOTE: The Dream Portal Team grants permission to redistribute, an unmodified version, of Dream Portal to:  SM and SMF.
Current Version: 1.1
Campatiability: SMF 2.0+
Official Site: http://dream-portal.net
For Support & Extensions: http://dream-portal.net/index.php/board,68.0.html
Additional Info:  This package automatically includes bug fixes from Dream Portal 1.1 Update Packs #1 through #7.
FYI: Some pictures that represent Dream Portal may require certain extensions (templates, and/or modules) in order for you to display your pages in the exact same manner.

What Is Dream Portal?
Dream Portal is a modification for Simple Machines Forum that turns your forum into a full-fledged portal. It comes, fully equipped, with a Homepage, Dream Menu (Menu Manager), Dream Layouts (Layouts Manager), Dream Pages (Page Manager), and an Extensions Manager. The blocks of content are called "Modules" which can be installed/uninstalled at your convenience.  Dream Portal is easy enough for newbies, and advanced enough for experts.

The Core Features Of Dream Portal
At first glance the standard features of Dream Portal may seem the same as other portals, but they are designed differently and managed very differently. The core features include:

IMPORTANT:  If you have Dream Portal 1.0.x installed, you must fully uninstall it before you upload and install Dream Portal 1.1.  This is because of the vast differences in the database structure between the 2 DP Releases.

Regards,
 - The Dream Portal Team

Hmmm... I've been waiting for this to appear. Good work - I'll try this on my localhost when I get home.

I'm particularly keen on trying "Each layout can also be specified where it can be shown anywhere on the site..." as I want to play with my forum header area :)

Thanks, there has been a few reported issues with using XAMMP and Dream Portal.  Dream Portal still needs to be debugged for XAMMP.  Dream Portal has been tested mainly on an actual online environment.  Ok, this was fixed and was due to a reference call not being initiated within the variable for the Dream Portal Admin sections that failed to load up the DP Admin sections for PHP version 5.4+.

For anyone interested in translating this huge mod, you can actually create Language Packs that can be installed directly into the Dream Portal Admin.  There has only been 1 language pack created so far, and it's in Russian, by Bugo located here:  http://dream-portal.net/downloads/area,langpacks/  It's not really that hard to create a language pack at all.  Also, there is a partial Spanish Language Pack that our Spanish Translator was unable to finish, if anyone is interested, located here:  http://dream-portal.net/topic_1209.0.html

Thanks to SMF Customization Team!!  I almost thought that this day would never come!

For Adding actions/non-actions when Editing Layouts.  The syntax is as follows:

Non-Actions: - Defined as a URL that doesn't have index.php?action= within it.
SYNTAX:
Code: [Select]
[{non-action}]={value}[{sub-action}]={value}EXAMPLE:
index.php?board=1.0;sort=subject would be inputted into a User-defined Actions setting (when adding/editing a layout) as follows:
Code: [Select]
[board]=1[sort]=subjectNOTE: The URL syntax can go as deep as it needs to go for the entire URL.  So if you have an actual page linked to:
index.php?page=help;sa=download;area=attachments;images and you would like a layout associated with this page and this page only, than you would type in the following:
Code: [Select]
[page]=help[sa]=download[area]=attachments[images]
You must start off any NON-ACTIONS within square brackets!

Actions: Defined as a URL that has index.php?action= within it.
SYNTAX:
Code: [Select]
{action value}[{sub-action}]={value}EXAMPLE:
index.php?action=profile;area=theme;u=1 would be inputted into the User-Defined Actions setting (when editing/adding a layout) as follows:
Code: [Select]
profile[area]=theme[u]=1NOTE: The URL syntax can go as deep as it needs to go for the entire URL.  If you want to apply that layout to all instances where action=profile is in the url (globally), than it's as simple as typing in the word profile, or selecting it from the list of available actions and adding it to the layout.

You must start off any ACTIONS without square brackets!

The difference between Actions and Non-Actions is that Actions are not enclosed within square brackets (when defining the action), where Non-Actions are, when defining the non-action (page, board, topic, home, etc. etc.).

In short, anything that is not specifically stated as index.php?action={something} needs to be inserted within brackets, whether it has a value or not!

Hope this bit of info helps you all to get your layouts shown anywhere you need them to be!

Cheers :)

Thanks, unfortunately I don't suspect many people even know that DP 1.1 is out, since it's not even in the list of just released mods on the mod site, since the date of the original submission is used for this instead of the date that it was approved.

Oh well...

Easy way to find this in the admin panel?

Doesn't work, when I try to enable the feature and leave the page it goes back to disabled.

Also, I still can't find the panel for it.

Also, I still can't find the panel for it.

When you enable the feature, you have to click on the "SAVE" Button at the bottom of the page to save it so that it stays enabled.  You can't just enable Dream Portal in the core features and leave the page without SAVING it!  Please save it, and than you should see the Dream Portal Admin section along with all of it's sub-sections.

@Djehuti - Thank You!  A ton of work and thought went into creating Dream Portal.  Some of the best developers took part in it's creation!

Strange, are you using a localhost??  XAMMP, perhaps??  You are running SMF 2.0.2 correct?

Also, check your SMF Error Log, and let me know if you see any errors in there, k?

I'm not sure what you are saying here.  Please be more specific.  It kept your Home as an open page??  What is that supposed to mean?  That doesn't make any sense.  Please be much much more specific.  Trying to help you, but all I can gather from anything is that you are not seeing the DP Admin when you save it in the DP Core Features after enabling it.  All I can gather is that it won't enable Dream Portal for you in the SMF Core Features.  This, I have not seen anywhere, unless you are using XAMMP, which is a localhost.  I have heard reports of using XAMMP on localhost causes the DP Admin from not being accessible/viewable.  Is that the case??  Are you using XAMMP?

Also, are you saying that uninstalling Dream Portal has given you a problem?

solo, it works fine on localhost. Remember, there's no place like 127.0.0.1!

In XAMMP?  There has been reported problems using XAMMP.
Title: Re: Dream Portal
Post by: Dream Portal Team on October 09, 2012, 11:35:58 PM
I found the problem, and will now update this package on the SMF Customization Site.  Go here to see the problem and the solution for this:  http://dream-portal.net/topic_1263.msg8674.html#msg8674

This will make your DP Admin area visible and showing all sub-sections.  Can't believe I overlooked this.  Still strange how this works in online environments, but doesn't with XAMMP.

Well, do that edit and TADA, your DP Admin shows perfectly fine.  Updating the current package on the SMF Customization Site and the DP.net site.
Title: Re: Dream Portal
Post by: Arantor on October 09, 2012, 11:37:36 PM
What version of PHP is involved?

You have to explicitly state the function as having a by-reference signature for PHP 5.4 while PHP 5.3 will accept it as being passed by reference from the hook call point.
Title: Re: Dream Portal
Post by: Dream Portal Team on October 10, 2012, 12:05:03 AM
Yeah, that's exactly it Arantor.  I have just updated the Mod on the DP.net site as well as the SMF Customization Site with the variable being passed by reference in the actual DP function.  So, this will address ALL PHP versions that accept variable references.

@ Rowe - If still interested, Dream Portal should now work as intended.  The Mod on the SMF Customization site has been reuploaded to fix this issue.  Appreciate the Bug report very much so!

This would have to be inserted into the Blog Module as 1 of the extended features.  Currently, the Blog Module (http://dream-portal.net/topic_845.0.html) extends to support the Bookmarks Mod (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=864), the SMF Topic Prefix (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1752) (by default), and the SMF Advanced Topic Prefix (http://www.smfpacks.com/page/sa=atp) Mods.  We have asked if anyone would like this module to support other Mods, to reply to the Blog Module Topic (http://dream-portal.net/topic_845.0.html) with a link to the SMF Topic Mod that they would like the Blog Module to support.  Please post a reply to that topic with a link to the SMF Likes Mod, and we should be able to update this Module to fulfill your needs.

And, no offense intended to anyone, but the Dream would have still existed, and the fact that DP was released and approved here at SMF, after the 2 years of the fallout, proves this.  But we appreciate and won't forget all that was done for Dream Portal by ALL members.  We understand that our members have more important things to do in their lives vs. spending all of their time contributing to Dream Portal.  Slow and steady wins the race as in the "Tortoise and the Hare (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Tortoise_and_the_Hare)"!

Let us know your results.  There is much more planned for the future of Dream Portal that will blow you away in version 1.2.  You can get support for Dream Portal within this topic here, or at the Help and Support Board (http://dream-portal.net/board_68.0/) over at the DP.net site (http://dream-portal.net)!  With Dream Portal, only the Custom Module is included with it, as opposed to other portals, so you have to just pick out the modules that you want from the Module Packages Board (http://dream-portal.net/board_65.0/) and just upload and install directly within the DP Admin - Extensions - Add Modules section.  You can also download cool templates for your modules from the Module Templates Board (http://dream-portal.net/board_77.0/).

We hope you find the Dream Portal you've been looking for!

For anyone interested in translating Dream Portal 1.1 into another language that can be uploaded directly into the Dream Portal software via the Extend Dream Portal -> Add Languages section, SoLoGHoST has created a youtube video that explains this step by step right here:  http://youtu.be/CtNEceDHTWw

We would greatly appreciate any translations that you have to offer and we'd be happy to include you onto the team at Dream Portal, if interested, for submitting your Language Pack, once completed to this topic here:  http://dream-portal.net/topic_1300.html

Just a thought...  I doubt there will be much to support for an ERROR-FREE and well coded Portal!  But just in case, we are always here to support it!  It's actually interesting to see not many posts in this topic, tells me that people are happy using the Portal and they have nothing bad to say about it.  Cause when you see other Mod Support Topics with tons of posts, it usually means that people are getting bugs with it, or the Mod isn't the way they thought it would be, or they want some feature that isn't within the Mod...

In any case, it feels good to have a Mod Support Topic with practically no one needing support for it!  Don't think many Mods out there could say the same...

That would be awesome, cause right now Dream Portal 1.1 has only been translated into the Russian language.  If you need any help after watching the video, just let us know.  You should definitely install a copy of Dream Portal to be able to see how your translation is going in your language pack.

@Jack_40k - I just updated the SimpleSEF version from 1.1 to 2.1 on the DP.net site, and well, ran into some bugs with SimpleSEF 2.1.  This is not a surprise, considering that the Mod hasn't been updated since June, 2011.  In any case, everything should now work fine.

Please let me know if you have anymore problems browsing the DP.net site (http://dream-portal.net).

There has been a bug detected in the jQuery Drag and Drop section of the Manage DP Layouts of the Dream Portal Admin, due to the newest update of jQuery, now being at version 1.9.  The bug is due to the fact that jQuery no longer supports the browser method.  The fix for this has been posted up here:  http://dream-portal.net/index.php/topic,1348.msg9218.html#msg9218

Dream Portal 1.1 will be updated shortly on the SMF Customization site as well as the DP.net site, a patch will be provided for those who have Dream Portal 1.1 all ready installed on their forums within the Announcements Board (http://dream-portal.net/index.php/board,10.0.html) over at the DP.net site.  Will be a topic entitled, Dream Portal 1.1 - Update Pack #5.

This problem is resolved, helped him on the DP.net site.  Apparently, seems as if he was manually installing DP himself, as just about every operation in the modifications.xml file was missing cept for the index.php operations.

To all people in the future, if you are running DP 1.0.x, you must uninstall it completely (through the SMF Package Manager), and than you can install Dream Portal 1.1 through the SMF Package Manager!  It is important that you do this through the SMF Package Manager!  Trying to do this manually will only make things complicated!

Solo!!!

HUGE apologies for not getting back to you sooner; it's been rather hectic as I've been pulled into one project after the next, be it OfficeSpace-related or otherwise.  But suffice it to say that DP merged with the Nova theme has been nothing but smooth for one forum that I was asked to help redesign (Lost Worlds)...

...it's working so far with the other forum that I'm helping out with, but now I've ran into an (unrelated) issue - trying to find a theme that will look good with the content!  :D

Dream Portal will not make you lose content.  Many people have Dream Portal installed just fine.  The only people that are currently having problems with DP are those with PHP versions below 5 and those with Server-Related problems.  I would recommend that you have PHP 5+ installed to be sure that DP will work fine.

...it's working so far with the other forum that I'm helping out with, but now I've ran into an (unrelated) issue - trying to find a theme that will look good with the content!  :D

All DzinerStudio themes that I have tested look great with Dream Portal, such as Gearbox, Citiez, laGusta, Outline, Scratch, Inferno, and Joli.

The following themes also look good with DP installed on them:

Alot of Crip's Themes, if not all of them, look good with DP installed.  And I'm sure there are many more themes that look good with Dream Portal installed on them.

Dream Portal 1.1 - Update Package #6 is available for download located here => http://dream-portal.net/index.php?topic=1467.0  Dream Portal 1.1 has been re-uploaded on the SMF Modification site, to included these fixes already.  So, if you download and install Dream Portal 1.1 after this post's creation, than you do not need this update package.

This update pack fixes 2 bugs found:

1. open_basedir restriction in effect (undefined error in SMF Error Log) when viewing the Module Templates Admin Page.  This bug is due to this page attempting to open up a directory structure based on the default.php template (which won't exist, because it's not a part of the template structure, since this is a standard uninstallable Module Template that comes with DP 1.1).

2. Login issue when Allow Guest Access to forum was disabled and the shoutbox was being shown on a page where you login (any page that had a login box attached to it, homepage, forum, etc.).  This is a critical fix, IMO, as it's not really related to just the shoutbox, but all dream actions.

IMPORTANTDO NOT DELETE THIS PACKAGE ONCE INSTALLED!  If you wish to uninstall Dream Portal 1.1 completely, you should uninstall this package first, and than uninstall the Dream Portal 1.1 Package after that!

Thank You for choosing Dream Portal!
- Dream Portal Team

When trying to access admin on my board it goes to a blank page with Hacking attempt...


This happened after installing this mod, it says it was successful http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=2763

I went to manually install it, and none of the changes were made before, so when uploading the Mod it didn't actually install succesfully.
After making all the changes manually, I'm still getting the Hacking attempt...
Title: Re: Dream Portal
Post by: SoLoGHoST on May 27, 2013, 11:49:16 PM
If you are getting a Hacking Attempt, than it seems that the require_once($sourcedir . '/DreamPortal.php'); edit has not been successful in the ./index.php file.

Please be sure that this edit exists!

You should open up your ./index.php file, and check for the following line:

Code: [Select]
require_once($sourcedir . '/DreamPortal.php');
after this line:

Code: [Select]
require_once($sourcedir . '/Security.php');
If it does not exist, than add it and also check to be sure that the file exists:  ./Sources/DreamPortal.php
Title: Re: Dream Portal
Post by: babyxdeja on May 28, 2013, 12:35:52 AM
The below was already in index.php

There is also a file at Sources/DreamPortal.php

Code: [Select]
// And important includes.
require_once($sourcedir . '/QueryString.php');
require_once($sourcedir . '/Subs.php');
require_once($sourcedir . '/Errors.php');
require_once($sourcedir . '/Load.php');
require_once($sourcedir . '/DreamPortal.php');
require_once($sourcedir . '/Security.php');

Also, be sure that ./dp_license.txt exists.  It should be within the Root of where you installed your SMF Forum at.  Where SSI.php lives.

Next, double check your manual installation of DP 1.1, cause the require_once($sourcedir . '/DreamPortal.php'); line should be AFTER ./Sources/Security.php gets required.  I believe you did the manual installation wrong!

The operations in modifications.xml, when it says:  <search position="before">, this does not mean that you add in the <add> CDATA code before that search, quite frankly, it means the OPPOSITE... you add it in AFTER!

So, when you see <search position="before">, than it means that whatever CDATA is in between the <add> and </add> tags, you add it AFTER, NOT BEFORE!  And when you see <search position="after">, you need to add whatever CDATA is in the <add></add> tags BEFORE!  If you do not know how to install something manually, than you should not install anything manually!

You should recheck all of your manual edits to all of the files to be sure you follow proper manual installation instructions as I indicated above.

Here's a link to how to install Dream Portal 1.1 manually:  http://dream-portal.net/index.php?topic=1342.0

Yes, I was thinking in use the fade option, but I think that is not bad by this way.

Thanks for the opinion, DP works great!

Post by: SoLoGHoST on June 19, 2013, 03:18:18 AM
Did you already think on making a custom code module? Like adding custom PHP/HTML on the content of the block.

You mean within the Blog Module itself?  If so, have thought about this already, but there are only 2 spots where HTML/PHP/BBC Content can live, above and/or below the content, but in that case, than you can just create a clone of the Custom Module and use that to cleverly, placing it above and/or below the blog module in that layout.  If you use the Transparent Template with the header disabled, than it could seem like part of the blog module.  I suppose it's not the same though.

But I somehow feel like it is going to be cluttered with these 2 parameters in the settings of the module, if I add them for adding in HTML, BBC, and/or PHP above and below the posts content.

What are your thoughts?
Title: Re: Dream Portal
Post by: Diego Andrés on June 19, 2013, 12:13:25 PM
I was thinking in an individual module, but your idea is not bad at some point, users would use that to add a comment maybe? And if they only want to show the custom PHP/BBC, they can clone the blog module and "disable" de recent topics/posts?

Or what other kind of functions could be added?

Ok, so you are like the 10th person to ask for a module that supports PHP/BBC/HTML, and it's funny that people ask for this module, because this module is already installed when you install Dream Portal.  So, I have to ask, is it not obvious?  That the "Dream Portal Installed" title on the Custom Module is the PHP/BBC/HTML module (AKA "Custom Module")??

Perhaps it should say:  "PHP/HTML/BBC" for the title instead of "Dream Portal Installed"??

Hi Friends,
I'm a newbie - first time admin building 1st site.  I've installed Dream Portal on a test forum, and have it enabled (meaning that I see "Dream Portal has just been installed" on the Home tab).

When I go to Dream Layouts > Manage Layouts, I can't seem to make that page.....well, work....which I realize is incredibly vague.  So I'll just use more words  ::)  So for example, I see the middle section is already checked.  I thought I'd enable all the rest (top, bottom, left and right) to see what they look like.  So I put checkmark on those.  But when I click Save, nothing happens.  The page doesn't refresh or anything.  Then I tried using Enter key instead (in case of a mouse issue).  But just nothing happens.

I noticed when you mouseover the little moon icon (beside Add Layout and Edit Layout) you get some color choices.  So when I clicked on a color, I notice the middle layout section changed color.  But still, clicking the Save button, nothing happens.  So I don't see the color change on the actual page (Home tab).

Other controls seem to work fine.  For example, I've added a new tab to the menu, using Dream Menu > Add Button.  And for example, I clicked on Modify, in the middle section, where I had tried to change the color.  Then I chose the rainbow icon.  That page saved the new icon, which now appears on the page.  But still no color change, because that page (with the color controls) won't save.

It seems like I'm either missing some vital understanding, or there's a problem with this Layouts page.  Should I try uninstall/reinstall?  Or else what am I missing, with all my considerable newbie-ness, lol?

I'm using SMF 2.04 with Firefox (current and updated) on Windows 7, 64-bit (also updated and current).  Since it's a test forum, it really only has a couple of mods at the moment -- ADK Gallery 2.01, SMF Gallery Lite 3.6a, and Switch Permissions 1.0 (which doesn't seem to work, so I'll probably uninstall soon).

Maybe I installed the wrong package?  I installed DreamPortal1.1.zip.  But maybe I should have used DreamPortal1.1.tar.gz??  I really don't know what the tar.gz extension means, or is used for, so that's why I decided to use the zip file.

Hopefully you all can get me straightened out here.  Thanks for your help  :)

PS -- Also, nothing will drag and drop, as indicated by the instructions at the top.  I try to drag, but it just highlights text in the drag area.

When you click on Save, it uses ajax to update the page, therefore it should not go anywhere.  But if you wait a second, it should add a green box at the top of the page which states the following:
Quote
The module positions have been saved.
Click to close this message.

If you do not see this box, than jQuery is not being properly loaded (which will result in other problems you mentioned).

Check the pages source code, by right clicking and selecting, "View Source" and ensure that the following is in there:

Code: [Select]
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="./Themes/default/scripts/dpManMods.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="./Themes/default/scripts/dpAdmin.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript"><!-- // --><![CDATA[
var dlpIdPos = "6";
var sessVar = "{YOUR SESSION VAR}";
var sessId = "{YOUR SESSION ID}";
var errorString = "Error";
var cloneMade = "The clone was made.";
var cloneDeleted = "The clone was deleted.";
var modulePositionsSaved = "The module positions have been saved.";
var clickToClose = "Click to close this message.";
// ]]></script>

Also, try loading that page with a different browser other than Firefox and see if you are able to drag and drop than.  Do a HARD PAGE REFRESH when checking.

I noticed when you mouseover the little moon icon (beside Add Layout and Edit Layout) you get some color choices.  So when I clicked on a color, I notice the middle layout section changed color.  But still, clicking the Save button, nothing happens.  So I don't see the color change on the actual page (Home tab).

The color is NOT supposed to change on the actual Home page or any layout, so this is working as expected.  This setting is just for your Admin section to be able to change the colors of the module to be presentable and display properly according to whatever theme you have installed on your SMF Forum.

I'm using SMF 2.04 with Firefox (current and updated) on Windows 7, 64-bit (also updated and current).  Since it's a test forum, it really only has a couple of mods at the moment -- ADK Gallery 2.01, SMF Gallery Lite 3.6a, and Switch Permissions 1.0 (which doesn't seem to work, so I'll probably uninstall soon).
I tested with Firefox just now and no problems saving the page and/or dragging and dropping modules.  I will test with those SMF Mods installed and see if there are any conflicts with those SMF Mods and Dream Portal and let you know.  However, it seems to me that jQuery isn't being loaded in your Manage Dream Portal Admin page, so that would cause all of the issues you are having.

Maybe I installed the wrong package?  I installed DreamPortal1.1.zip.  But maybe I should have used DreamPortal1.1.tar.gz??  I really don't know what the tar.gz extension means, or is used for, so that's why I decided to use the zip file.

The tar.gz file is the same exact package, it is just a smaller filesize for those who want to use less space on their server.

PS -- Also, nothing will drag and drop, as indicated by the instructions at the top.  I try to drag, but it just highlights text in the drag area.

Again, this is due to jQuery not being loaded on the page.

When did you download Dream Portal 1.1?  If after May 15th, this problem should not exist because Dream Portal Update Pack #5 (http://dream-portal.net/index.php?topic=1352.0)  Fixed this problem back in January of this year.

Did you receive any errors, via the SMF Package Manager, when installing Dream Portal?  Have you tried to Drag and Drop in the Manage Layouts Admin with another Browser?  Opera?  Chrome? etc.  Does it not work in those browser also?  When you do a view source on the Manage Layouts page, are the following strings found:

Code: [Select]
http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.min.js
/Themes/default/scripts/dpManMods.js
/Themes/default/scripts/dpAdmin.js

Do the following files exist, relative to your SMF Root, via FTP?
Code: [Select]
./Themes/default/scripts/dpManMods.js
./Themes/default/scripts/dpAdmin.js
Title: Re: Dream Portal
Post by: brynn on July 13, 2013, 07:44:17 PM
Oooohh, jquery!   No, I'm using NoScripts add-on for Firefox, so I had to specifically allow jquery.  Now.....well, ok, now I got the green box saying the postitions have been saved.  But I still don't see any new sections on either the Home tab or Forum tab.  I've refreshed multiple times.

I was able to drag and drop an empty space from the right section to the middle section.  And while I can't seem to drag it back, that would seem to indicate it's working.

Maybe I have to somehow make some content for the sections, before they show up?

I just downloaded and installed it this morning.  I did not receive any errors when installing.  Yes on the view page source question.  I'm afraid I don't know what this means "relative to your SMF Root, via FTP".  But if allowing jquery doesn't make it moot, let me know how to find it, and I'll look for that piece of code. 

One last question before I post.  Would visitors or members of my forum need to allow jquery, for it to function right for them?  Or is jquery just for the admin area?

Thanks  :)
Title: Re: Dream Portal
Post by: SoLoGHoST on July 13, 2013, 11:06:51 PM
jQuery  is just for the Admin Area, however, many modules use jQuery found here:  http://dream-portal.net/index.php?action=downloads;area=modules

If you want to add modules to your forum (index.php?action=forum), than you need to add a layout in the Manage Layouts section, select forum as the action and add it, than once the layout is added, you'll want to add modules to it.

Dream Portal only comes with 1 Module installed, the 1 that says:  "Dream Portal Installed" is in actuality the "Custom Module", you know this when you click on the "Modify" link on the module itself (within the Homepage Layout, or any layout that you create), it will say in the titlebar:  "Custom Module Settings".  But if you want more functionality and to show other things, there are currently 48 Modules to choose from and install via the "Extend Dream Portal -> Add Modules" Admin Section of SMF, located here:  http://dream-portal.net/index.php?action=downloads;area=modules

There are DP Module Templates located here:  http://dream-portal.net/index.php/board,77.0.html

I have a couple of questions that needs answering if you can i was told that it might be your side on the one question but unsure.

1. When members log in there directed to the dream portal main page which i am setting up on my test forum as a dashboard but when logging out there still directed to the dream portal main page and i carn't for the life of me figure out where i edit to direct it to mywebsite/index.php

I only want them to go back to my website/index.php so this means dream portal frontpage is hidden to guests.

Any idea on which file needs editing. ?

2. Is it possible to have the board news feed show only the updates of replys to a persons post not selected board news as i am creating a user dashboard and this would be ideal to show the latest replys to a users post ?

Cheers

I only want them to go back to my website/index.php so this means dream portal frontpage is hidden to guests.

Any idea on which file needs editing. ?

Yes, no files at all need editing.  Just simply go to permissions in the SMF Admin, and uncheck View Dream Portal Layouts (first option in there) and click on the Save Button at the bottom right-hand side of the page.  Now, when guests log out they are redirected to the forum index.php, and the Dream Portal Homepage is disabled.

2. Is it possible to have the board news feed show only the updates of replys to a persons post not selected board news as i am creating a user dashboard and this would be ideal to show the latest replys to a users post ?

Ok, so there is no module called, "Board News Feed".  And, while there are many many many features within the Blog 2.2 module, located here:  http://dream-portal.net/index.php?topic=845.0 that feature was not coded into it.  The reason for that mainly is because, modules have general settings that narrow down into specifics based on Admins preference, but should cater to all users and even guests, when possible... however, because you are excluding guests within your idea, what would happen if the module were enabled for guests?  What would be shown than?  In any case, here is quick code that you can throw into the "Custom Module" (the one that says:  Dream Portal is Installed in the title of the module), which is the only module that comes pre-installed with Dream Portal, that will output links of all posts that the user hasn't read yet.

Code: [Select]
global $modSettings, $smcFunc, $user_info, $scripturl;

$request = $smcFunc['db_query']('substring', '
SELECT
m.subject, m.id_topic, m.id_member, m.id_msg, m.id_board,' . ($user_info['is_guest'] ? '1 AS is_read, 0 AS new_from' : '
IFNULL(lt.id_msg, IFNULL(lmr.id_msg, 0)) >= m.id_msg_modified AS is_read,
IFNULL(lt.id_msg, IFNULL(lmr.id_msg, -1)) + 1 AS new_from') . '
FROM {db_prefix}messages AS m
INNER JOIN {db_prefix}boards AS b ON (b.id_board = m.id_board)
LEFT JOIN {db_prefix}members AS mem ON (mem.id_member = m.id_member)' . (!$user_info['is_guest'] ? '
LEFT JOIN {db_prefix}log_topics AS lt ON (lt.id_topic = m.id_topic AND lt.id_member = {int:current_member})
LEFT JOIN {db_prefix}log_mark_read AS lmr ON (lmr.id_board = m.id_board AND lmr.id_member = {int:current_member})' : '') . '
WHERE 1=1 AND {query_wanna_see_board}' . ($modSettings['postmod_active'] ? '
AND m.approved = {int:is_approved}' : '') . '
ORDER BY m.id_msg',
array(
'current_member' => $user_info['id'],
'is_approved' => 1,
)
);

while ($row = $smcFunc['db_fetch_assoc']($request))
{
if (!empty($row['is_read']))
continue;

$has_replies = true;
echo '
<a href="' . $scripturl . '?topic=' . $row['id_topic'] . '.msg' . $row['id_msg'] . '#msg' . $row['id_msg'] . '" rel="nofollow">' . $row['subject'] . '</a><br />';
}
$smcFunc['db_free_result']($request);

if (empty($has_replies))
echo '
<div class="floatleft">You have read all posts in this forum.</div>';

Just put the above code into the "Custom Module" or a clone of it, on any and all layouts that you need it for.  Make sure that the Code Type is set to PHP.

If you are looking for just the replies of their own topics, or topics that they have posted in, than just change the database query accordingly...  For example, change to search within topics where the user posted in, and search for any posts that have a higher id_msg than the highest id_msg from that user in that topic.  This logic will work perfectly for replies.

Cheers :)

Ok, so now there are 2 download packages to choose from.  1 is just plain Dream Portal 1.1 (updated that fixed a minor bug), and the other package DreamPortal1.1_ckEditor.tar.gz includes the famous ckEditor (aka FCKEditor) v4.3, which includes support for all SMF Languages automatically.  This integrates within the Dream Pages HTML option and since it loads the entire index.css from your current theme, it may take a second to load, but also, because of this, it allows you to code in HTML, with your current themes CSS (using the Style dropdown box) and all while using the coolest WYSIWYG Editor.

For those who have Dream Portal installed already and want to have the ckEditor for your Dream Pages, you can simply uninstall Dream Portal 1.1 it, but do NOT place a checkmark in Remove all data associated with this modification. [Details], then delete it from the packages, and than upload and install DreamPortal1.1_ckEditor.tar.gz.

ENJOY :)

Hello, I have no problems getting on the site.  Is anyone else experiencing problems with this site?  http://dream-portal.net

It also loaded in my mobile device, although it really isn't made for mobile devices...  Currently says that there are 33 people guests on the site.

Is anyone else unable to access the website?  I am seeing 27 Guests on the site now, and most are at the index.php, but some are reading topics. 2 users are on the site atm (including me).

More people responding would be great.  And if you could say what browser you are using, and if you cleared your cache or not.  Please clear your browser cache also and history logs if that is ok...  But if you've never been to the site before, than you shouldn't have to do this.

@lurkalot - Can you tell me the browser and if you cleared your cache or not?

Also, if people are able to load the site just fine, can you please indicate that as well?

Thank you.

Just an update on this.  We are aware of the reason why the DP.net site is working for about 50% of the world and the other 50% is not seeing it and this is something that just has to propagate and takes time, so it is out of our hands and should be resolved within a day at most.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you, but please have some patience.

No, it's not that.  There is a route that your computers takes to access the internet when a site is being called to load, during this route (think it's called the Trace route), there is a connection down.  So, in short, the internet is down somewhere along this route that your computer takes to access the Dream Portal site.  This route most likely is different for google.com.  Hopefully, it should change or fix itself shortly.  I have the same problem at my work PC, where I can't access my site from work, but I can access it from home.  This is the best conclusion that makes the most sense.  That and it may still be propagating (which I don't understand why it would take over 72 hours to propagate).

Ok, all, I have some seriously basic questions.  I've read nearly everything, but I'm finding a hole I can't quite fill and just need to see if I have this right.

First, I want a portal for a small site, and I'm not brilliant with this kind of thing, but have enough of a variety of experience behind me in different platforms that I can sort of grunt my way through adjustments and tweaks if I know precisely what and where they should happen.  I've downloaded and installed DP with no problems, and have turned it off for the moment until I can be sure I know how to adjust it.  So, do I understand correctly that the process is:
1.  download and install DP  (done)
2.  download and install the modules you want to show up in your site
3.  ?? 

Where does one create content for the homepage function?  (And presumably the modules available on the homepage can be different than the modules visible within the site, if one uses the homepage as an information and login page?)

Second, I want a chat function rather than a shout box.  Will DP support a mod such as the SA Chat Bar, or is there a better suggestion?
Title: Re: Dream Portal
Post by: Trenchwork on November 23, 2013, 02:20:04 PM
An update . . . I've installed another portal for the moment and will run through DP later when I have a bit more time to play.  But if someone can confirm the process for me, that will save me time later.   :)
Title: Re: Dream Portal
Post by: SoLoGHoST on November 25, 2013, 08:17:05 PM
Dream Portal creates a Homepage, pages, Menus and allows you to place modules on any layouts.  Layouts consist of visual representations of actual content that can be assigned to as many pages in SMF as you want/need.  Layouts can be created on-the-fly with sections however you need them to be.

1.  Download and Install Dream Portal

2. Download and Install whatever Modules you want here:  http://dream-portal.net/index.php?action=downloads;area=modules (Currently there are 49).  Also, DP comes with the Custom Module automatically installed, and if you are savy you don't need any modules but that one and can just keep cloning it for as much content as you want on your Homepage and other layouts.  Note:  Custom Module is the one that says "Welcome to Dream Portal" in the title.  You would just modify this module and put in PHP, BBC, or HTML code as needed.  Making clones and modifying the clones for whatever you need it for.

3. Download and Install any DP Language Packs (unless you are native to the English Language, than you  might not require this).  They can be found here:  http://dream-portal.net/index.php?action=downloads;area=langpacks

4. Download and Install any DP Module Templates here:  http://dream-portal.net/index.php/board,77.0.html  These allow you to display Modules in different ways, you modify the module and choose the template to display.  The topics in that board show visual representations of what the template looks like in the default SMF Curve Theme.  Each theme, it should adapt to nicely.

5. Ask questions at DP.net, learn more and discover the difference that DP makes!

6. Good Luck and DP.net is always there at your disposal:  Documentation Board (http://dream-portal.net/index.php/board,72.0.html), Video Tutorials (http://dream-portal.net/index.php?page=videos), etc. etc.

Post by: SoLoGHoST on December 17, 2013, 01:37:36 PM
Well, for 1 Dream Portal is not stand-alone, so it wouldn't compare to Wordpress or a CMS for that matter.  Don't quote me on this, however, I do not think that any SMF Portal is actually stand-alone, although they offer this feature within the SMF Administration of the portal, so I hear.  But the administration of the Portals are within the SMF Administration, therefore, it's not completely a stand-alone product.  As far as other portals for SMF are concerned, that's really up to you to decide!  I'm unable to tell you what these other portals offer as far as features, since I've never really used them.  I can really only tell you what Dream Portal's features are and how to work with DP for whatever your needs are.

For what it's worth, hope that helps.

first off, i haven't used the other portals. i did invest considerable time in researching others- and when i saw Dream-Portal i knew it was what i was looking for.

that said, the dream portal custom module will allow you to do just about anything your little heart desires, appearance-wise. it'll even allow you to bypass installing some of these mods so as to give your forum a more seamless approach as far as management and functionality.

to top it all off, the support at dream-portal is, as my mother used to say: "Top Drawer".  yes, i'm a big fan of dream-portal, if you haven't guessed by now...

Hi there,

I am looking at putting DP. Although I am not sure is the site where you DL the portal or do you have addons other then SMF and DP to make your site look as it does ?

Another question is I am running 2.07 default theme.  Will DP adjust to the current them I have ( I know SP and other integrate) ?
Does DP ingrate with the stock theme ?  The site looks cool, just not sure how much of the site is fluff and how much is similar to what a person might have ?

Thank You
I am using simple portal seriously considering DP but like the look I have right now colors etc do not want to lose that necessarily.

Thanks

I realize that this is an old reply, but in any case...

When you install Dream Portal, you are greeted with the initial Dream Portal Installed greeting on the Homepage.  This is just the Custom Module, with code in it to show that.  You can edit the Custom Module however you want to put whatever you want in it.  You can clone it as many times as you need and edit those clones to each be different.  You can also disable the Module completely by just dragging it into the Disabled Modules section of the DP Layout area in the Administration.

DP only comes with 1 module installed.  If you want more modules, there are currently 53 Modules, all located here:  http://dream-portal.net/index.php?action=downloads;area=modules

Many of these Modules were built by SoLoGHoST/Xarcell.  There's also plenty of Documented Topics in the Documentation Board (http://dream-portal.net/index.php/board,72.0.html) and even some Videos (http://dream-portal.net/index.php?page=videos) to help you get started.  There is not much support for Dream Portal, other than the main Developer, SoLoGHoST, but that doesn't mean that you will receive poor or lacking support if you run into problems with Dream Portal.  It just means that many people take and never give, but that's the story of life.  Personally, I like to give because I find it more rewarding.

Hi guys would just like to thank you guys for the awesome portal you guys have created! It really has improved the usability of my forum immensely! It may be a long shot but I really would love a mod that could display the recent SMF gallery images. I know it's a mod made by other developers but hey I thought I'd just throw the request out there  :)

Is there a way to make the thumbnails in the recent images mod smaller?

Once again thanks for the great mod!

Hello seano436,

I don't mind creating modules for Dream Portal that support other mods, since that is what DP was built for anyways, however, when making a request to build a module that supports another SMF Mod, it would be helpful if you included the url to this SMF Mod so that there is no confusion on which mod you are talking about.

Also, there is no recent images module for DP, unless you are referring to Recent Attachments.  Please be more specific.  URL to module helps, or if you ask in the Module Topic over at DP.net (http://dream-portal.net) also helps.

Thanks :)

Hello again,

I have replied to your post on how to get images smaller at DP.net site.  Will look into the SMF Gallery Module.  I believe this was a Work In Progress at one point from one of the team members, however, was never finished.  Will see about finishing it up, or recreating it.  Will announce it when it is finished in the Announcements, as most/all new modules for DP get announced.

Cheers :)

I can honestly say that I have never expected my site to be hijacked (Home Page is now the Dream Portal) until I am APPROVED by a Mod? What exactly are you approving since you did not request a url (or was this gleaned from a link to your site from mine)? 

I understand your needs, but I have several hundred extremely unhappy people yelling at me as to why the Home Page is gone. If there was any warning about this I missed it.  I will give no more than 24 hours and then this mod will be gone

I apologize to everyone here on SMF as this is a DP issue, but I have no avenue to vent on the site until I am approved.

Yes I have disabled Dream Portal from core features until this approval takes place.  It is the principal that has me flummoxed...

All the SMF portals do this, they create a new homepage and put a welcome message on it (kind of like how SMF has a welcome message as its first post)

To change it, you go into the DP configuration area in the admin panel, to the layouts area where you will see the 'layout' assigned to the home page, with a DP module in it, this is what controls the front page.

I have to admit though, I tried to use DP yesterday and found a number of issues, not least the fact that the theme changer module (which isn't even bundled) doesn't work at all. Couldn't recommend DP.

Please take a moment to report bugs if you find any issues with Dream Portal.  Some of the modules have been built long time ago, and since not many developers over at DP, many have been built on-the-fly (quickly).  Some have even been built by people who don't fully understand how DP Modules are meant to be built.  I have to admit, the module system is not exactly flawless at it's core.  Some concepts do need improvement.  Updating modules is not an option either.

Please do take a moment to report bugs, or anything else that may cause you to not like using Dream Portal.  Simply saying, I don't like Dream Portal does not help us (or, specifically me) to code it into something that you do like and want to use for free.

@genius012 - I don't understand how you would get an 500 Error on installing this mod.  It would be very helpful to us all if you can provide more detail into this.

@lordrene - What does your host provider do?  Do you have any clue?  I would be concerned as to what your host provider has to do in order to bring back your website after uninstalling DP.  Perhaps this is a hosting issue?  Or maybe we can find out more in order to make using Dream Portal a more pleasant experience for you and others?

Post by: Arantor on January 18, 2015, 05:00:05 AM
I honestly didn't have time to go through and document all the issues I found. When I have more time I'll do that. But when the basic module installation doesn't even appear to work out of the box, I'm somewhat less motivated to do so, especially seeing that I was going to spend the time to write a module myself to bridge my gallery into DP... honestly, doing this with SP and TP was significantly easier than it looks like to do for DP.

As for the module I pointed out, that was one of yours. If anyone knew how to build DP modules, it would be you, right?
Title: Re: Dream Portal
Post by: SoLoGHoST on January 18, 2015, 05:06:55 AM
Theme Module was created by the Dream Portal Team.  It should say so in the script.php/source.php file.  This means that more than 1 person in the team took part in it's creation.  I have had no problems installing Dream Portal right out-of-the-box.  Other people have not had problems either, so this seems to target a small audience with unknown platforms, etc..  It would be most helpful if there were more knowns here.

Also, what issue(s) have you encountered with the Theme Module?  Because, again, it works fine for me.  What does not work exactly?
Title: Re: Dream Portal
Post by: Arantor on January 18, 2015, 05:13:54 AM
Aside from the general unintuitive nature of it (the fact that I had to go look up on your site about installing modules because no other portal (SP, TP, EP, PMx) unbundles like that), the confusing way layouts work, the theme changer never actually worked for me.

I mean, after 10 minutes of head-scratching I figured out how to get it to show up, but I'd select a theme, hit update, see refresh and nothing had changed. This was on an otherwise unmodified SMF and I really didn't have the time or energy to debug this. I figured I could worry about compatibility between my gallery and DP later, though now... I guess I can wait until someone asks me rather than actually trying to spend any time on it if you're going to be this helpful.
Title: Re: Dream Portal
Post by: SoLoGHoST on January 20, 2015, 12:17:33 PM
Hello, maybe you can help me understand what the problem with the Theme Changer is?  I have it working quite fine, right-out-of-the-box here:  http://smf209.sitemaniacs.com/

I don't see any problems with it.  Perhaps you have something on your site changing your redirects when themes change?  Or maybe there is something different from your SMF Forum, than that of a Fresh SMF 2.0.9 install?
Title: Re: Dream Portal
Post by: Arantor on January 20, 2015, 12:23:06 PM
Because it was an otherwise unmodified SMF install - as in freshly installed 2.0.9 albeit it with a selection of themes, all of which were installed beforehand, and I tried a number of themes to rule out that being a thing, it didn't even work on Curve, and this was a localhost with no htaccess file thus no redirections (and all the other portals were fine with this working). I don't know why it doesn't work and I have no interest spending any of my time debugging it.
Title: Re: Dream Portal
Post by: SoLoGHoST on January 20, 2015, 12:27:58 PM
Dream Portal was not built for localhost though, so maybe that could be the problem?  It doesn't matter to me if you debug it or not, however, it does bother me that you report a bug without providing a way to reproduce this bug, other than it doesn't work.  I have tried, both, installing themes before Theme Changer module is installed, and even installing Themes after Theme Changer module is installed.  Both scenarios, can not reproduce this bug.
Title: Re: Dream Portal
Post by: Arantor on January 20, 2015, 12:57:25 PM
For me, the steps to reproduce are simple: 1. Install DP. 2. Install theme changer. 3. Configure Theme Changer to show up. 4. Go to page with TC on it. 5. Select theme. 6. Press change button. 7. Observe as page reloads with no changes having occurred.

I get it doesn't repro for you. It does for me. I don't know why, but as soon as I get a user of my gallery that wants a DP module... I might actually care enough to investigate for you, but until then I see no reason to expend any more effort than necessary (like you did with the SD stuff on your board icons mod, really)

Thanks to those who have supported this project at one point or another in the past, but the time has come for me to end Dream Portal's life, which doesn't seem like it will be missed much anyways, considering the lack of downloads compared to all other portals.

Sad to find out it stopped.  :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

I am using it with SMF 2.1 for more then a year without any problems.  It is so good portal
 with many options.

Couldn't agree more. Still using this mod on my live forum and while I am working with ezportal on a dev site I still prefer the way dream portal was set up. The way you configure layouts in dream portal just seems to make more sense to me. Pity the development came to an end, I think it would do great on 2.1

Too many people talked trash on this portal and tried to discredit it from the beginning and even up until the end.  This was the main reason I stopped development on it.  Because I got sick of the trash talk and drama surrounding this Portal.  The other reason was because of the lack of developers as I was the only developer.  We had some good developers in the past and others who contributed to it, but overall, it was a huge headache coding this in my free time all by myself.  And what was worse, is the bugs that other developers left behind that I had to fix.  All for what seemed like nothing to a community who was already, more than satisfied, using Simple Portal and/or EZPortal and/or Tiny Portal.

This mod actually works on a fresh install of SMF 2.0.14 and seems perfectly fine, despite the dream portal site no longer being around and the inability to download the 20+ Modules and 3+ Module Templates, as well as the Russian and Spanish Language packs I had available for download on that site.  Ofcourse, you can always create your own Modules/Templates for it.  Just an FYI.

**EDIT
I tried to originally package all modules with the Portal so that I wouldn't have to offer them separately.  But this was a problem with getting Dream Portal across the finish line and approved here on the SMF site, since "Source" and "Template" for modules were never separated, and seemed like too much work at the time to do this, which is why SMF would not approve it with the Modules attached (as what Simple Portal provides).  I would assume that Simple Portal has separated this properly in order for approval from SMF, but that's just an assumption.  Never used Simple Portal.

Dream Portal won't show up until you activate it via the SMF Core admin area.  Maybe that is what you didn't do yet?  Try going to the SMF Core Features admin area and look for Dream Portal in there.  Let me know if you don't see it in there.

Hi there, oh yep sure did it was activated, some reason it wouldn't show up.
I ended up using Simple Portal no issues.  I have a test forum I may try it on to figure out the problem.
