Tell me about it ! I really wanted to get on there and as for help ... I was trying to figure out why my SP mod to enable sound in the Shoutbox, stopped working.

I eventually resorted to Chrome's Developer's tools and found out that Chrome has been withdrawing support for Flash (as indicated by the error below)

Quote
Same-origin plugin content from https://forum_name/Themes/default/images/sp/shout_sounds.swf must have a visible size larger than 6 x 6 pixels, or it will be blocked. Invisible content is always blocked.

I could've saved myself a lot of bother ... i really want SP back too ... and suddenly, I have this fondness for IE.

Their site was up for several years and only got to this state some months ago. I know Simpleportal is supported here, especially by Chen Zhen, but it would be nice to know if and when their site and forums will be online again because it also contains a treasure on information about Simpleportal.

So I hope somebody knows something more definite then "in the near future".



Yes but as we all know most all developers have other off site duties to pay their bills, I can only imagine trying to find time as
a developer and working a job and to get my site back up.  But there is progress not three months ago there was no site to access just an error. So the fact now there is a page now in maintenance mode means  1# its not abandoned as the question asked. #2 they have to be working on it since the site is now seen even if its limited its there.  So I would presume based on the progress sometime in the near future it would occur. I too have to remind myself at times SMF and 99% of the mods are all free supported mostly by non-paid persons.
Patience is needed sure it will resolve itself in due time.

Oh I understand that part, it's not that I'm impatient or unthankfull for free stuff.
It's more that it would be nicer to know what's going on. I also have a forum, which is not very busy anymore, but even in the busy days with my work and everything, it's possible for every forum admin to put some notice up, not just suddenly put a site offline which worries users. Not only about the admin but also if there will be support in the future and if they do or don't have to make an easy start to look around for something else. Which is also understandable.
But indeed the site is not down, it's just offline, so we will be patient. The only thing I stated was my hope that somebody would know a bit more. Nothing more, nothing less. ;)
Greetings, Black Tiger

If one looks back you can see about when the support become minimal and I suspect that some of the information on their site will need to be updated to fit the newer updates just so much has to be going on. Wasn't suggesting you weren't patient just putting a spin on it, like people have said that keep asking when the beta of SMF will be ready and the answer is when its ready and not before LOL . Guess same analogy could be said it will be up and working I suspect when its ready :-)

Ah.. see what you mean. If you include the www it gives the issue, so the redirect should be adjusted or www added indeed.

it's nowhere to be found.

I had a similar problem when i first joined when aegersz went missing on me too.

I couldn't logon with my old name (aegersz2) using my regular password.

I tried with aegersz3 this time ... could you please remove aegersz3, reset aegersz2 and email me the password ?

this is a bit embarrassing ...

I use the latest version of SP. I use a few "Recent Posts/Topics" blocks (set to "topics"). As far as I can see, this block doesn't show somewhat old topics. I cannot see the topics which I posted a few months ago.

I would like to have a recent posts/topics block which is timeless. Is there any way I can do that?

Thank you in advance.

If you want a list of topics similar to how it's done in that block, but with your own set of topics you need to make a custom PHP block, have the topic IDs in an Array, fetch the id of first message of each topic, and use the ssi_fetchPosts function.

Someone asked a similar question yesterday, but as I'm in my mobile phone it's hard to put code, but that is what I remember from one site I used something similar.

Recent Topics seem to disappear after a month, I suppose that's a setting somewhere.

Isn't there a way to adjust that setting?

Seems a lot easier than what's 'Gluz' is suggesting, if it's feasible, of course.
