@lurkalot - not convinced the poster is using TP given the reference to the site going away (because SP's site has disappeared lately, not TP's)
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

Thanks Arantor.  You could well be right there.   ;)

I just updated a small website to Tiny Portal 1.3 that I haven't added much or new content to in a while. It is a niche and also kind of a test site for me for things like portals though I've run TP on it for quite a while now. It has the latest SMF version 2.0.15 on it with PHP 5.6.

When I picked TP I did so because I thought it could show a front page that showed BOTH TP articles and forum posts. Now that I'm actually trying to do that I cannot make it happen. I've just spent almost 5 frustrating hours searching the Internet as to whether it can do this (still unclear?) and how to make it actually work. I've tried a ton of combinations of settings.

I assumed "What to display on frontpage: Forum-posts and articles - sorted on date would do exactly that but instead depending on other settings I choose I get either 1 article on 'page 1' and 1 article on 'page 2' or 2 articles on 1 page and sometimes an empty page 2?

I only have 2 articles set right now to show on frontpage and none featured because that seemed to cause me even more problems. Even though I've tried several combinations of 'Display forum-posts on frontpage from:' set I get no forum posts displaying. Depending on which boards I choose I get odd variations with the 2 articles and still no forum posts. If I set 'Number of posts/articles to display on frontpage:' to 5 or less I get 2 pages with 1 article only on each. If I set this number to 8-10 I get the 2 articles only on 1 page. I get really odd results if I set this number even higher??

Either I've misunderstood and TP cannot show BOTH TP articles and forum posts on the frontpage, or maybe I have a fundamental misunderstanding of some or several settings somewhere causing this problem though I'm not sure there is a combination of settings I haven't already tried 3 times...? I tried the core theme and that didn't cause anything better to happen. I do have 4 other mods I believe on this site. I have not tried uninstalling any of them. Frankly, lately, I have less and less luck with clean installs and uninstalls on SMF as more and more mods seem to be stepping on each other's toes so I often have to do manual adjustments to get this to work which I don't enjoy much. I had a heck of a time uninstalling the old TP 1.107 before I could even try 1.3 that finally came down to modifying the old TP package to look for the new code in Source QueryString.php. I was so glad that TP 1.3 was looking for this new code already at least so I didn't have to modify that package.

The website I'm trying to get BOTH TP articles and forum posts to show on the frontpage is kentuckylakebass dot com. Does anyone know for sure can TP 1.3 even do this, or did I completely misunderstand how it can work and waste almost 5 hours for nothing...?? If it should actually do this does anyone have any suggestions as to why it might not be doing this for me? Maybe a common issue(s) or some little piece of need to know to make it work? I've already spent a bunch of time on tinyportal.net without success and it doesn't appear super lively over there. I guess if I don't have success here with this huge community I can ask afterwards over there. It looks a lot less busy over there.

If this is something that can be done with lots of hacking I probably won't do it. I have enough to keep track of already and would use my limited brainpower for other higher priority things.

Are you actually running TP on there now? can't see it in the copyright.

You have spotted a bug which seems to have been introduced when the php7 fixes were applied, and this wasn't apparent when testing.  It's not a function that I use myself, but that's no excuse I should have tested it.  Sorry.

Not lively = good to be honest.  Did you post over there? ;)  If you're running PHP 5.6. you could probably get away with running TP 1.2 with a slight edit to the user block login form.

Hi, can this be implemented in your next updated?
Like a stickied thread in frontpage. Like in the list of recent or selected posts or articles in the frontpage, there would be one thread that never goes down. It will always remain at the top as seen with that of announcements for vanillaforums.
Thanks

I don't remember turning it off or disabling it after I posted this? That doesn't mean I did and forgot, but it would have been a momentary thing. It is running still.

I guess I'm glad it should work without the bug. Just wish I would have asked sooner... ;D

I can post on the Tiny Portal website to see if and when this bug might be fixed. I have a problem remembering all the websites I have to go back to and check for replies on so I don't immediately go to additional websites to all the ones I already try to keep track of. I will be using PHP 5.6 for a few months at least though I'm thinking it is about time to upgrade to a new server later this year and I imagine that will have me moving everything to PHP 7.

Thanks for you reply.

Unfortunately and after a bit of investigation, this problem was introduced after updating to SMF 2.0.14 / 15 I so even installing the older version of TP won't cure it.  Until we can find a answer we are very much stuck atm.  Sorry.

I had converted version 1.2 at the time and that's why now I translated the 1.4R I attached to Spanish. As there are many files I decided to put everything in a zip, anything you tell me.

Rock Lee, thanks for asking.  I don't think there was anything added since 1.4R.   TP 1.4.1 was released quite soon after to fix some bugs we missed.  Therefore those language files you translated should be good for both TP 1.4R and TP 1.4.1   ;)

How do I make "Home" link to the front page of my website? Right now "Home" and "Forum" link to the index page of the forum.
