What is TinyPortal?
 
TinyPortal is a mod for SMF that adds a powerful and mature CMS to your SMF Forum in minutes, with native integration, without having to worry about bridging, database, and appearance. Your SMF and TP will be a homogenous ensemble from installation. It's up to you and your creativity to use TP's features to customize your site and organize its content.

Features included in TinyPortal:
  • Article System: The article system gives you a CMS system tightly integrated with your forum. Write articles in php, html or bbcode, and choose what member-groups can access them, who can contribute, and how they are approved.
  • Blocks and Panels: Blocks is a term for the rectangles of information you can use throughout the portal. For the sake of simplicity the page has been divided into the "panels", which when combined can mimic many common page layouts. Blocks can contain regular html, BBC, php code or special written functions that collect specific types of information. You can show them according to which permissions the visitor has, and even show them just in certain sections.
    TinyPortal comes with a number of standard block types, such as: Recent Posts, Theme switcher, Search, Calendar, Poll, RSS feeds, Menu, User Profile block and News.
  • Menu Manager: The menu manager lets you add single level Buttons / Tabs to the SMF menu, but also create menu's within a portal block available to specific membergroups. You can create and organize various types of menu items: links to articles, categories, or even just a custom link. You can choose to have the link open in the current window or a new window.
  • Downloads Manager: A built-in module for TP that lets you offer files for your members to browse and download. Its works by having the downloadable files placed in categories, letting you restrict member groups access level per each category.
  • ShoutBox: An intergrated message box in which you can leave messages for others to see and thus maintain a simple "chat" on the site. Combined with permissions you will have much freedom in who can participate as well.

For more detailed information about the features of TinyPortal and how to use them, check out the TinyPortal Docs Site

Note: You must uninstall any previous version of TinyPortal before you can install TinyPortal for SMF2.0.x or SMF2.1. Make a backup of all your SMF and TP files before you uninstall.


Current Version: TinyPortal 2.0.0, 5th October 2020
TinyPortal (TP)

The TinyPortal Team is pleased to announce the release of TinyPortal 2.0.0

TinyPortal 2.0.0 can be used on SMF 2.0 and 2.1
Minimum required PHP version : 5.6.0
Highest supported PHP version (tested) 7.4.11

Changelog: TinyPortal 2.0.0

Technical updates (2.0.0):
- fix for frontpage layouts: 'Promoted topics only' and 'Only forum-topics' not showing images and 'Promoted topics + articles' and 'Forum-topics and articles' not showing the comments links for topics
- fix for topics on frontpage not being shortened
- fixed frontpage showing less forum topics then set
- fix for frontpage not showing guestnews when using Forum-topics and articles - sorted on date
- fixed Block collapse option

- fixed 'create article' links in User block not working for non-admins
- restored missing "Posted in" links in articles
- fixed the collapse function on article comments

New functionality (2.0.0 RC1 and 2.0.0):

- updated admin pages for a more logical layout including tooltips
- added setting to disable the PHP eval function

NOTICE! because of the database changes in this version there's no going back to TP 1.x.x after installing version 2.0.0. You can install previous versions, but by doing that you WILL lose TP data and you will need to manually fix or recreate your content!!! For these reasons it's advised to backup your database and files before proceeding.

A huge thankyou to tino and @rjen, and all our beta testers for all their hard work, and making this release possible.

I see. :) Well...it could be a just an article in my mod. The make button for that page only for instance.

In the next release of mod, I plan to have the option of an article without a category, or marked as such. It will then show up in the category/content list as a single page. That way special pages can be made that will auto-show in the menu there.

Try to replace with the original Load.php, Index.template.php and index.php, those files are modified by the mod.

If you have files in the root folder named  index.bak, load.bak and index.template.bak, those are YOUR original files and could just be renamed to php and put in again:

- load.bak => rename to Load.php - put in Sources folder
- index.bak => rename to index.php - put in forum root folder
- index.template.bak => rename to index.template.php - put in themes/default folder.

I will check into why it wont un-install properly.

Don't you even have a backup when trying out mods?

And..as far as I can see, only the link-tree is wrong. Try to replace all the files as I suggested.
