Update
1. The SMF 1.1.x version for this mod is located at the bottom of the first post of this topic. Do not use the ECHP 1.0 Beta 1 Build 0.7d.zip package for 1.1.x.
2. Be aware that the 1.1.x version doesn't have a proper admin panel. Instead, all settings are gathered in one big page.
3. You might want to know that the 1.1.x version never where tested.

Tried it on my SMF 1.1.7 and the test failed on:
./Sources/Help.php
./Themes/default/Help.template.php

I tried uninstalling TinyPortal to see if that would help but it gave the same result.

Tried it with fresh files and tried it with and without TinyPortal being installed and it still gives the same result... haven't tried to do a manual install yet.

Finally got it to install to my SMF 1.1.7 by doing a manual install... on my other attempt one of the file edits must have been missed.

At this point, with the current version it looks as if the only way to install is to do it manually if TinyPortal is to be used as well.

Oh Im so doing a happy dance today
The TP tab would be the one thing I would like to so go. I LOVE TP and the tab explains the functions but at least the members I have had experience with dont know what TP is - its just a website to them. But then again, the members on my site go into a panic and and think its difficult to post pictures even though there is an image there and its there photobucket account that is causing it.

You can try this package for TP and SMF 1.1.x.
It's untested, but if the regular none-TP 1.1.x package works, this one will to.

That works. :)

Did an uninstall of the previous version and installed this new .v through the package manager with no problems at all.
The TinyPortal help pages link shows up in the navigation and works as expected.

A couple of notes:
When in the TP help pages the SMF tab shows along with the TP tab... if you click on the SMF tab it redirects to the ECHP 'main' page.
About three pages of errors show up in the error log, but those should likely be disregarded until you release a version with an admin panel.

Works good as is, but the 2.0 style admin panel will be nice to have. ;)

The TP pages are fine as is, I only mentioned that so that you would be aware.

Here are several entries from the first page of the error files, the first two don't appear (to me) to be related but I left them in anyway:

Tried that.. error from PM on Help, Help.template & ModSettings

Can get by with manual edits to Help & ModSettings but my template looks nothing like what your alterations propose

I can explain this as simply as possible.. If I do it & implement I guarantee it.
 If I do it and you implement it its a crap shoot.

Hello, HR!

First, make sure you did the manual edits of the two other files 100% correct, and after that use this file:

Sounds great Nascar.  ;D

One note for those of us that have TinyPortal and SMF 1.1.7 installed:
Found that in my case it worked best to replace 'Help.php' and 'Help.Template.php' with fresh SMF default copies of those two files before installing the currently available versions of ECHP.

Probably me making something wrong in the installation package.
I didn't use TP when I made it, and as I said it wasn't tested.

Me not into coding so this may be wrong, but it sounds like your install routine needs to overwrite those two files entirely so as to remove all of the TinyPortal entries in the two.

No ,I don't think so.
I just have to take a look at some fresh TP help files and adjust my installpackage to those.


Anyway, I just finished 1.0 Beta 1 Build 0.8 and I'm ready to release it after I've tested the 1.1.x version.
Then I have to fix the TP version to, of course.

ECHP 1.0 Beta 1 Build 0.8h (1.1.x and TinyPortal).zip

On this one the install fails as follows:
With TinyPortal installed the file test fails for Help.php and Help.Template.php
With TP uninstalled it fails on Help.Template.php

On a manual install it fails to find this part in the code of the Help.Template.php file:
Code: [Select]
                <operation>
            <search position="replace"><![CDATA[function template_manual_search()]]></search>
            <add><![CDATA[function template_helppage_search()]]></add>
