Download Packages/installed.list from your server via FTP, open it up, and delete the line dealing with my package. Then re-upload it (overwriting the current one), and re-upload Sources/ManagePermissions.php, Sources/Profile.php and Themes/default/Profile.template.php. None of the mods you have installed now would have made any modifications to those files, so re-uploading them shouldn't cause any problems.

Thanks. I am in LA at the moment and New York tomorrow so I will do this when I get back to Johannesburg South Africa


Okay  did as suggested...eventually and when I tried to install mod I got this:

Installing this package will perform the following actions:
   Type    Action    Description
1.    Execute Modification    ./Sources/ManagePermissions.php    Failure
2.    Execute Modification    ./Sources/Profile.php    Failure
3.    Execute Modification    ./Themes/default/Profile.template.php    Failure
4.    Execute Modification    ./Themes/default/languages/Modifications.english.php    Success

So I have not continued.

Mind you since the last time I have installed a few more mods.

Upgraded to 1.05
and Gmail mod.

Can you tell me how I can do this installation manually?


Okay, now I know there will be failures, because the changes to those files had a happened previously and in modification.xml it searchs for certain text, which it won't find, because the mods had already been implemented.

So I went into each of the files and checked that each of the changes that you have programmed to take place, actually did make the changes, and they have. All the changes have been implemented in each of the files, exactly as per your .xml files

This has me now completely bamboozled.

The only change that does not tie up is the change in you upgrade.xml which requires that 'profile_use_avatar' => false whereas mine says true in the managepermissions.php. I don't see this as a problem as I think this is changed because i set it that way in the way I have set up the permissions.

Anyhelp will do because at the moment I have had to turn off all permissions and must change the avatars myself.....not what I call fun.

Maybe I should up grade to smf 1.1!!!


Bump...just so oldiesmann can see this...or anyone...some help would be great.


I couldnt get this to install into SMF 1.1 rc1.


This seems like a wonderful mod, especially for those of us who like to have "reward-esque" type features for our posters.

I'm wondering a couple of things. Firstly, if there'll be an update to 1.1 compatibility?

Another thing I was wondering, is if it'd be possible to make some kind of tweakage to this mod so that not only can you decide whether or not a group is permitted an avatar, you can decide which avatars a group is permitted to use based on post-count.

I've seen this in action on a different forum, where they have it set up as follows:
Standard Avatars Requiring at Least 0 Posts >Lists<
Standard Avatars Requiring at Least 100 Posts >Lists<
Standard Avatars Requiring at Least 250 Posts >Lists<

I think it'd be fun to have it coincide with post count as well. :)
