I'd just make sure, via ftp, that the file permissions have changed properly as I've seen a number of instances where the user hadn't got the ftp settings in the forum quite right or the server wasn't complying and they hadn't changed via this method...just make sure.
Some servers may require more work. I believe these servers do not have their permissions set properly for their users.

OK, I just re-installed a fresh version of SMF 1.1.2, then I installed TinyPortal, and once again the forum was completely wrecked...

Menus missing, administration area doesn't work right, TinyPortal menus gone, boards gone, and on and on.

Luckily, this was an empty test forum that I can easily delete from the server.

I think I'm done with TinyPortal!
I'm starting to think you are having a permission issue or hosting problem. I've installed it dozens of times on different servers and when there was a problem like yours it is was due to hosting.

Also you might want to make sure that you are using the correct version of TP for smf. If your smf version is utf-8 then tp must be the same. If not, then make sure both smf and tp are NOT utf-8.

I'm pretty sure it's not a hosting issue, and my forum is not utf-8.  All I know is Tinyportal caused major problems for me.

I do like the concept of Tinyportal, and would really like to make use of this sort of thing.

@Matthew Schenker  If you want to have tiny portal on your site why dont you give it a try again.  You might have to do a manual install.   Come over the http://www.tinyportal.net and you will find all the info for the manual install there.  We can guide you through it if you want.

To be frank I think that Skhilled has probably got it about right...if one of us with some experience of server wrestling were to get to grips with it by being given suitable access we might manage to persuade TP to work on Matthew's sites but doing it via forum Q&A would be awfully difficult.

I understand the project is suspended pending a more stable release, but is there any way to get the previous version files? It was working fine for me... and I really need it. :(

You will find that support there (Tiny Portal's own site) can often answer questions more easily regarding their product that we can here.

I have been using it for a while now.  To me it seems pretty stable. I have not had any problems out of it.

I just installed another new one yesterday and it goes through without a hitch.  It's a great mod/portal/addition to SMF :)

I believe that suspension was for a previous version...0.7 something, if I recall.

 No, Skhilled. Look at the first post in this topic and see http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=97 At least as regards this site it still appears to be suspended though the download of the last version is available on TP's own site on the link I gave earlier.

Yeah, the version there is 0.5b and the date is 2005. Bloc may not have contested the suspension and just kept updates on his site. I can't say for sure, tho.

TP is at version 0.983 and testing has begun for 1.0.  8)
