Modification parse errors are usually caused by a permission problem on the server. Check to make sure all your files and folders are writable by the web server user. If you don't know how to figure that out you'll need to ask your host.

i chmoded all files AND folders to 777 and I still can't install it. I might as well go to smf1...

Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/u435574674/public_html/Packages/temp/SMF2RC3/tp_upgrade.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/u435574674/public_html/Sources/Packages.php on line 958

It's a server configuration issue. I don't know exactly what causes it though. Try and remove any package you have uploaded for the install. Then create a folder in your Packages folder called TP, then upload all the files from the package to that folder. Go back into the package manager and see if it will install. By clicking on the link that should have been created by uploading the files to the packages folder.

I have installed Tiny Portal but the users have noticed that the Shout Box doesn't update automatically. It will update with your own shout but until the page refreshes it does not show other shouts at all. Is this by design?

It's not an ajax shoutbox. It only updates when you refresh the page. I have plans to add a button to update it with ajax without refreshing the page, but I'm not going to make it a chat box so that it updates automatically.

Ugh. Sorry, but it's the main reason I got the Tiny Portal. If the shout box doesn't update automatically, it's not going to work for us. I can't imagine why you would have a shout box that doesn't update automatically, but so be it. I'll try other mods.

Thanks anyway.

It's because I think there is a difference in shouting compared to chatting. Having something like a shoutbox auto update can cause a serious load on servers. Good luck in your search, I'm sure you'll find something that suits your needs.

You added a portal mod just to have a shoutbox..? I suggest you start with a pure Shoutbox MOD instead, that would make more sense.

I've tried all of them Bloc - they either are not supported any longer or don't work properly. The best of the bunch was SMFPacks shout box but it had flaws and the author stopped supporting it. If you know of one that works with SMF 2.0 RC5 and is supported then I'd be happy to look at it.

Meanwhile I am trying Simple Portal which at the moment seems to have a functioning Shout Box that has selectable auto-update intervals ...

Running SMF 2.0 RC5 and TinyPortal 1.102 - and very appreciative of the work done by all. Have hit one snag which I can't work out.

When writing articles and adding images from the TP quicklist in the editor the images are

1) visible in the editor,
2) visible when published on the frontpage

BUT ...

3) not visible in "preview" or when looking at the published article (the TP name of the file sometimes appears instead).

Apologies if this has come up before but I have been searching for two hours and found nothing - any help greatly appreciated.

Warm regards,

Matthew

ps Here is an example: This article has no images in it? But if you click on the homepage you will see the article slug with images third down left column. The same is true if I use the full article or a slug on the frontpage.

I've just tested what you have reported, and I cannot reproduce the problem. I can view the quicklist images in preview and normal view without issue. Are you saving it before you preview it? In preview mode it only displays what is saved into the database.

Thanks for trying to recreate the situation IchBin - much appreciated. If you look at the linked article above (published) and then the homepage you will see the problem. I am saving before publishing. On the frontpage and in the wysiwyg editor all is fine. As a standalone published article or in preview no images appear.

Cheers,

Matthew

hmm... strange. I cannot reproduce this... I see what the problem is but don't know what is causing it. It seems to be dropping the URL from the path on the image. Would you mind giving me access to look at things on your site?

Ahh that makes sense.

There are two instances of this code. One shows if you don't have the option to show avatars selected. You can remove both instances if you want. Open Themes/default/TPsubs.template.php and find this code and remove it:
Code: [Select]
<br /><span class="smalltext">['.$w['time'].']</span>
