I don't know what would keep your article from updating. Especially if it just happened out of the blue without any changes. I supposed you could ask your host if there's anything they can see.

At this point my only suggestion would be to update TP to the latest version if you can't find anything.

Also, is there a way to check guests to view my frontpage article?  I checked the tickbox for them to view it, but didn't work.  Was wondering if that was another gliche to be fixed in the next release.

Thanks so much for your help.

I LOVE MY FORUM!  IT ROCKS!

I still can't get my frontpage article (welcome page) viewable to my guests.

Not sure how much of this is a bug report, v. not understanding how TP/SMF work, so I'll just lay it out. I have tried searching for answers on both this site and the TP site already. These issues appear in all themes.

Running SMF 2.0 RC4, TP 1.0 RC1 at hxxp:www.sanctusrefero.com [nonactive]
Viewing with Firefox 3.6.13

Using a menu widget called "Sand Box" to link to all my article categories. This works. Here are links:

hxxp:www.sanctusrefero.com/forum/index.php?cat=21 [nonactive]
hxxp:www.sanctusrefero.com/forum/index.php?cat=23 [nonactive]
hxxp:www.sanctusrefero.com/forum/index.php?cat=22 [nonactive]
hxxp:www.sanctusrefero.com/forum/index.php?cat=24 [nonactive]
hxxp:www.sanctusrefero.com/forum/index.php?cat=20 [nonactive]
hxxp:www.sanctusrefero.com/forum/index.php?cat=9 [nonactive]

While viewing these, buttons only show for three of the categories, regardless of which category you are in. Cat=24 has no articles in it, but the button for the category shows up. Cat=21 and cat=9 have articles in them and buttons for them show up. All other categories are empty, and have no buttons showing up.

Since until right before I wrote this post seeking help cat=21 was also empty, I am now assuming there must be content in a category for a button linking to that category to appear (but the button remains if content is removed, explaining why cat=24 is empty - it once had content in it but no longer does.)

The question is: Is my assumption right, or is this a bug?

Moving along, I do not want to use a widget to link to my article categories. I would like to use the main navigation menu. I have edited Subs.php to the following:

Code: [Select]
'tpadmin' => array(
'title' => 'Articles',
'href' => $scripturl . '?action=tpadmin',
'show' =>  TPcheckAdminAreas(),
'sub_buttons' => array(
'cat_battleguides' => array(
'title' => 'Battle Guides',
'href' => $scripturl . '?cat=21',
'show' => true,
),
'cat_craftingguides' => array(
'title' => 'Crafting Guides',
'href' => $scripturl . '?cat=23',
'show' => true,
),
'cat_gatheringguids' => array(
'title' => 'Gathering Guides',
'href' => $scripturl . '?cat=22',
'show' => true,
),
'cat_roleplayguides' => array(
'title' => 'Role-Play Guides',
'href' => $scripturl . '?cat=24',
'show' => true,
),
'cat_sanctusreferolore' => array(
'title' => 'Sanctus Refero Lore',
'href' => $scripturl . '?cat=20',
'show' => true,
),
'cat_thesaintsweekly' => array(
'title' => 'The Saints Weekly',
'href' => $scripturl . '?cat=9',
'show' => true,
),
),
),

The article categories are viewable by guests and all member groups, as are all articles. The idea is that I want the standard TP menu options dependent on permissions (this works fine) but I also want all categories to be listed. I did not see a feature in TP to allow automatic listing of categories in this menu (forthcoming feature maybe?), so I added them manually just as a quick and dirty fix... and got nada. The code above is live on the site, but not showing up in the menu.

Hopefully I have not made an embarrassing newbie mistake in my PHP or understanding of SMF! If I have, apologies for taking your time! Either way, any insight to get me going in the right direction?

I installed Tiny Portal on my forum version SMF 1.1.12 TinyPortal 1.0 RC1 now how can i add blocks to the left side of the forum and after installing TinyPortal I got an added tab of forum so how to remove it as opening my site first gives a blank page of Home and then clicking on forum shows the site I want

Also here are few screenshots of my tiny portal CP are they fine?properly installed or not as it seems all functions are not there cant see how to add,where to add blocks and other settings







also give me a link to download the compatible version for SMF 1.1.12 as the one I downloaded was also showing compatible but dont know what went wrong and where?

@origamikitsune, I don't know if the category link problem is a bug in TP just yet. I'll have to look into that.

But the reason you aren't seeing your custom buttons is because at the bottom of that function in Subs.php it is clearing out your code by reassigning the variable for the TPAdmin sub buttons.

Code: [Select]
// tinyportal //
        $buttons['tpadmin']['sub_buttons'] = tp_getbuttons();

You can comment out this line if you don't want those other buttons to show. Otherwise, add your sub_buttons in the tp_getbuttons() function inside the TPsubs.php file.

@expertsgalaxy,

It looks like either you are using a different language or english-utf8. In which case you need to grab the english-utf8 files from the TP.co.uk site. That should fix the missing text.

OH man I don't know what I did,  NONE of my blocks show anymore.  I uninstalled and re-installed Tinyportal, they still don't work....

All that shows is articles, nothing else

UPDATE: it's fixed, the language visibility settings were tripped, we've changed it back works now.

They've asked for a file path to the file I'm using when updating articles. Could you possible advise me which one that would be? (sorry)

Articles are stored in the database. The only place the host may see something is in the error_log on the server. If some type of error happens while you are submitting or updating an article it should hopefully show up in that log.

Sorry, I forgot to mention. Don't forget to check the SMF error log in the admin panel to see if anything of importance is in there when the error happens too.

OK, I have just run through all pages...basically skimming until the newest version--I think.

I got things back to normal for my Attic forum [you would not believe the issues that happened -- and with a clean install of everything]

I uninstalled--not delete--all mods and the portal. Then I uploaded fresh files for both SMF to make certain all refs to the B4 version were outta there. Installed TP and my site rebelled---it was ugly but I finally got things beat into sorta submission.

The older themes that some were updated to work with TP were the hardest but now they are all regular sized and functional again. My blocks would not show and neither did the front page article but playing with the controls they are now seen by all again.

All menu blocks however still did not behave-- seems with the uninstalling/installing new TP the links all lost their order number-- so reordered them, turned them back on, made sure the settingwere right then checked forum page---blocks were there but 2 had only 2 of the links showing out of quite a few listed prior and the rest were totally not showing. So after taking two Tylenol I just made the blocks into bbc and hand entered the links. As far as I know the menu section is not workinig for display purposes but will mess with that at a later date..no big deal.

Now after this newsletter I was wondering...after giving each of the themes their own .css file from TP so that they could have their own shout box input boxes matching themes (white hurts my eyes) and resiaing the avatar size a bit...I NEED smilies...rather the rest of the asylum does too.

Is there a way to get the shoutbox to acknowledge the smilies that we have in default smilies folder instead of the original SMF ones. We have long since gotten rid of those and just have custom ones in the default folder.

The last version of TP used the forums smilies but this one does not. What can I do? I hope this image works tis the mods, versions and themes we have installed. Sorry for misspelled words...spell check did not want to work.

Hey i need some help :(
I am admin of forum which is having TP installed. I have almost 35 blocks on different postions for different membergroups. I managed it. But the problem is that all the blocks are visible to admin. I dont want to see all the blocks because they are not related to me. Is there any way that i can hide some blocks from admin/me??

Please :(

DarkAngel, I swear you asked me this before. Bloc didn't write it to use the SMF smilies setup for some reason. It creates it's own list of smilies in the code. If you'd like to change them, you can alter the code. Otherwise that is the only option for now.

!RFAN,

In the TPAdmin > Settings area, there is an option labeled, "Admin can see all blocks?" Just select no and save.

I am not crazier than before then...I thought I asked too but couldn't find it anywhere. I looked so I could see what I was told...but tis well hidden or never got moved to new site.

tis ok though, found where the code is hidden and was able to not only give the masses a few smilies to play with but also a dropdown menu for the colors and size changing.

this shout box also places  a "\" before an apostrophe -- like in everyone's...how can it be made to just write it normally?

I just click the + and close the block that way it is not showing, just the title shows for editing it should I need to change something

That "\" issue is fixed for the next release. I've posted a fix at the TP site if you care to search for it.
