I installed Mambo (latest) SMF (2.0 beta 1)...they both run fine seperately but I don't seem to be able to get any interaction whatsoever between the two.

I put the bridge in. I imported all the SMF users into mambo--no problem. But what now?

Posts from forum don't come to Mambo (i have simply set 1,1), members registering on the forum don't come to mambo...they live their seperate happy lives.

Do I need to do something to SMF (i changed all the SEF, etc. as told in the readme on this thread)

URL?

Version of Mambo?

Version of bridge?

dextrous

http://cricketvoice.com//index.php  Mambo version: 4.6.2
http://www.cricketvoice.com/testforum  (now on 2.0 RC 1)

bridge 2.0 beat 1.

i basically need help figuring out instructions for how to make the newboard feature work. i even converted the homepage to blog

1) You have some sort of code redirecting the URL away from your bridge.

Your bridge is here:

http://www.cricketvoice.com/index.php?option=com_smf&Itemid=39

But it redirects to here:

http://www.cricketvoice.com/cricketforum2/?option=com_smf&Itemid=39

Which is your stand alone forum.  The stand alone forum is not bridged in any way.  You need to remove that redirect.

EDIT -- Just noticed that clicking ANY link in Mambo takes you to the forum.  You have a serious problem with that redirect.

2) The bridge does not work with SEF turned on in SMF.  If you want to use SEF, turn it on in Mambo, not in SMF.


Not related, but you should probably also upgrade to Mambo 4.6.5 for your security.

Thanks for your help.

But the re-direct is in place because forum is where the actual members are (cricketvoice.com/cricketforum2), so I don't want them to see the incomplete site when they come to cricketvoice.com. that's why I put the // so you could see the mambo page. But the redirect does not have anything to do with the forum posts not showing up. I have tested it even without the redirect to no use.

This would be the bridged site for example:
http://www.cricketvoice.com//index.php?option=com_smf&Itemid=39

the test forum is bridged with cricketvoice.com/testforum does not have seo turned on.

is there some mod i need to install on SMF like I did to Mambo (the bridge)? I must have missed a step...i turned on/off the options explained in the readme on SMF.

otherwise, I'm putting a board number for the first board and category number for a blog. Is there anything else that needs to be done to turn on the newboard?

dextrous

also, databases are seperate for the two installations but two db users have been assigned for both

Orstio

When you go here:

http://www.cricketvoice.com//index.php?option=com_smf&Itemid=39

If you click on ANYTHING, you are taken here:

http://www.cricketvoice.com/index.php?option=com_smf&Itemid=39 (Notice one slash)

Which redirects to here:

http://www.cricketvoice.com/cricketforum2/?option=com_smf&Itemid=39

Your bridge cannot possibly work that way.  You are not actually using your bridge as long as that redirect is there.

You also still have SEF turned on in SMF.  The bridge will also not work until you turn off SEF in SMF.

dextrous

As per your instructions:

This is a brand new installation of these two:
http://cricketvoice.com/testforum/
http://www.cricketvoice.com/cricket/

Like I asked before--how do I make it so when a user posts something in general discussion of the forum (1) it appears on the home page (3) of mambo.

Thank you.


dextrous

Thank you. I tried posting through that url (wrapped and unwrapped). Each time I was trying, I would get a couple of errors regarding size, etc. anyway, using the forum search, i fixed these three things (see below):
now, using that url you posted above, i can post new things into the forum...but each time i hit post, it takes a while then just gives a page not found error...going back, it gets posted on the forum..but not on the forum..and after post, i always get the ie cannot display page/internal server error.

------------------

@ini_set('memory_limit', '64M');

global $configuration, $database, $mainframe; (line 1109)   


(to make theme load properly)
function integrate_load_theme() {

   global $context, $simpleActions, $wrapped;

   if (!WIRELESS && !isset($_REQUEST['xml']) && $wrapped == 'true')
      $context['template_layers'] = array('body');
}

Is there anything in your site error log?

dextrous

These are the errors associated with trying to post a new thread in the server log:

I'm thinking it might be the line 160 error...not sure how to fix it!

Orstio

Change it to this:

global $configuration, $database, $mainframe;

Rasim Aeon

After installing, I am now getting this message when i go to my smf forum


Connection Problems

Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later.

Getting to my Mambo site is no problem.

Mambo version 4.6.5

Orstio

Does your Mambo database user have access to your SMF database?  DOes your SMF database user have access to your Mambo database?

Rasim Aeon

yes, same user names, same

Orstio

I'm not referring to your Mambo admin username or your SMF admin username.

You need to grant access to each database user to access the other's database.
