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?

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

you are pasting from word or something like that, aren't you?


Those quote marks are not appropriate for use in code...

you also have to CLOSE the quotes at the end of the img tag (where you define the title...)

No, I am pasting from the link to the button given to me by the site owner that I am trying to link

Change it to

Yep, worked that out, now all I need is the block to put it in, it still won't show in just the forum.  Why doesn't that tick box work?

vbgamer45

Forum should be in the forum posts/topics not just the forum index I think

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?

flutter

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

That issue occurs if you are over your php limits for an upload here is a topic on how to increase them

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?

vbgamer45

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?

well, I think that error is pretty self-explanatory.

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?

Ah I re read you have forum ticked untick that option

 ;D, yep that did the trick.  I know it's a lot but it would be great if you guys told us how to use the features when you make something.  Thanks for the mod, I now have it pegged, I think, now to work out about that shoutbox hahaha
