Quote from: Steve on July 10, 2022, 07:33:24 PMI guess I'm going to have to hire someone to set this up for me. TP has so much functionality that this old brain can't figure out how to do what I want to do.  :(

You may need to start by deactivating the default functions: there is quite some documentation available on the TinyPortal docs site...

Before I get any further into this (and I should have asked this first) is your shoutbox just a straight shoutbox without smileys or bbcode in the shouts?
Please do not PM me for support.

@rjen

Not knowing what you are looking for exactly, let me point you to the TinyPortal docs site again: https://www.tinyportal.net/docs/index.php?cat=Shoutbox

... Yes you can use BBC and Smilies, and Yes you (as admin) can choose to disable the functions if you need to...

Let me go over the docs. You guys have done amazing work with this mod and its documentation.

I'm going to update the forum from 2.0.19 to 2.1.2 and uninstall TinyPortal without removing its data from the database and I reinstall TinyPortal on SMF 2.1.2, will all my data be kept?

That's great. Thanks for the confirmation.

Hi @@rjen

I updated the forum to 2.1.2 and installed TP 2.2.2 and everything is fine, but SMFPacks Shoutbox is displayed on the home page of the portal. Previously, on the 2.0.19 forum, shoutbox was not displayed on the home page of the portal. Shoutbox is not added as top panel. Maybe here need to prohibit displaying the shoutbox on the main page of the portal?


@rjen

We do not support other shoutboxes. You will need to ask support in their support board.

We do offer a shoutbox as part of TinyPortal though...

Okay, so I need to inform Nibogo about this.

@@rjen

Tell me, is it possible to disable showing groups in the Users online menu block?

@rjen

 Not sure what you mean by that?

When the following option is enabled in the theme settings "Show group key on board index" these groups are displayed in the Users online block from TP. Is this any novelty for 2.1? TinyPortal 2.2.2 for SMF 2.0.19 did not display these groups in this block. I would like to disable the display of these groups in the Users online block.

@rjen

I am not aware of any changes in this area.

Would need to check that, but I am away from my pc for another week...

I understand. Previously, groups were not displayed here:



@rjen

It uses this SSI function: ssi_logOnline()

Perhaps that function has changed in 2.1?

In a future version of TP, can the TP team implement an option to disable the display of groups in this block?

@rjen

Yep, the SSI function was changed in SMF2.1: it now includes the membergroups IF the setting "Show group key on board index" is activated in the theme settings.

This means that the output of ssi_whosOnline(); is now different if this theme setting is made. I am not sure I agree with that change in SMF being a logical one, but it is what it is...

Changing the Tinyportal block function is possible but it will require to create some coding, where the ssi function is available out of the box...
I am not sure what the priority of such a change would be: I personally would just deactivate the setting "Show group key on board index" and be done with it...

I understand, if you ever manage to change the function of the block, it's nice to hear.

Some users on my forum complain that they need to set their smartphone browser to computer mode. For me it is strange because SMF 2.1 is responsive, but some people don't understand that. When I had a forum on 2.0.19, in the TPortal.php file after removing this line the portal automatically loaded in computer mode.

$context['html_headers'] .=  "<meta name=\"viewport\" content=\"width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0\"/>";
Unfortunately, now after removing this line it doesn't work. Is there a solution for this?

I understand that SMF 2.1 is responsive, which means it adapts to any device and I like it, but some weird users don't understand that.

@rjen

Well, some people will maybe have to accept that someone 'moved their cheese'  ;)

There is a work-around you can try: in the TinyPortal settings go the General settings: at the top of the page is the setting where you can indicate what themes are "non responsive themes"
This was actually needed in 2.0 where there were old and new themes.

You can indicate in SMF2.1 that your theme is "non responsive" (even if it is) which will casue TinyPortal to not apply the responsive behaviour of panels.
Side effect is that you forum will be forced in some sort of 'desktop' width, also on mobile devides.

It works if you have side panels active, have not tried in other configurations and your mileage may vary....

1. Thanks for the info, good that this setting is still there. And can you tell me why after enabling this setting, the logo and the entire footer at the bottom of the forum is in the middle when browsing the forum on a smartphone? Why did these elements change their position?

2. So I don't have to remove this code?

$context['html_headers'] .=  "<meta name=\"viewport\" content=\"width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0\"/>";

3. Do you mean this setting in TinyPortal, or another setting in SMF 2.1?

4. I noticed that "Posted in" overlaps the avatar.



5. If I publish two posts on the home page of the portal, only one post is displayed in full, the other is collapsed. Why is this happening?
