1) I had an extra table called phpbb_flag_table
2) I had the extra field user_from_flag in the phpbb_users table
When I went to the admin console, 'flags' option, I got an error message that the table FLAG_TABLE was not present. I thought it was a little weird that the flag mod installer instructions take the phpbb prefix as default, but the code inside its PHP files doesn't.
To fix this, I copied table and contents to a table called FLAG_TABLE (even though that does waste space a little). The result:
1) The admin 'flags' option now works, though the button at the bottom has no text and when I edit a flag there is only ":" in front of the country name and the flag image.
The worst thing is that I cannot choose a flag in my profiles. So I can view the flags in the admin console but other than that the mod does nothing.
Can anyone please help?
(And can I now safely throw away the phpbb_flag_table?)
cronos42, renaming it to FLAG_TABLE isn't a correct way to do it. By using the db_update_en.php file, it should detect the correct table prefix you are using and create the table with the correct prefix.
Have you perform the edits in install_en.txt? If the database tables and fields are added correctly, maybe you missing the changes required for includes/constants.php? Also, you mentioned that the text is not showing up, have you make changes to language/lang_english/lang_main.php and language/lang_english/lang_admin.php?
