Install Issue

Was just going to install the news mod. There is an issue with the installation instructions.

After running the DB install, I started to copy files. On line 48, it says to:

Code: Select all

copy root/includes/functions_news.php to includes/functions_news.php
Only problem is, there IS no such file. In the includes directory from the zip file there is only, news.php, news_common.php, and news_data.php.

Help?

Instead of Vertical View, Can I make the news be scrolled horozontally?

Horizontal scrolling = bad, m'kay?

You could do some simple javascript marquee style thing I suppose, of if you just wanted to limit it to a couple postings, you could modify the template....

One possible solution is a horizontal list, nice and clean with CSS

I have a heavy stylized port of this mod (using mx-system) on one of my sites gortbusters

BUG with CFG['index_file'] ?!

Posted: Tue Jul 20, 2004 8:24 am
by foxmask1
i dont find anywhere ; where the following variable is filled :
$CFG['index_file']
the variable is called to fill {INDEX_FILE} in template called by the news_rss.php but is always sempty....
what do i miss if i really miss something ?

EDIT>
to fix the problem i've done in include/news.php :

Code: Select all

    $index_file = $CFG['index_file'];
    if( $this->config['news_index_file'] != '' ) {
      $index_file = $this->config['news_index_file'] . $index_file;
    }
    if( $this->config['news_base_url'] != '' ) {
      $index_file = $this->config['news_base_url'] . $index_file;
    }


instead of

Code: Select all

    $index_file = $CFG['index_file'];
    if( $this->config['news_base_url'] != '' ) {
      $index_file = $this->config['news_base_url'] . $index_file;
    }

Avatars no longer display [solved]

Hey All,
Okay, this has me totally stumped. I was working on my portal, installed mods, everything was fine. I installed the default avatar vs gender mod and everything was still fine. I installed this mod and I now I've noticed I no longer have avatars. The portal page doesn't display it (I installed the allow avatar on index mod and put it in the portal's php file), if I look at my profile, it doesn't show and if I go to edit my profile, the option to "show gallery" is gone. I am totally stumped, where would I begin to look to see what code needs fixing? Whenever I am at an area (page) where an avatar is to display, I can see the image placeholder appear for a second, then it goes away and no image is loaded, and I don't get the broken image icon, the cell shrinks and no image is there. Can someone help me, or tell me what files to zip up and send so you can review?

Thanks
CyberSpy

[solved] I did have the "gallery" button for avatars in my profile edit screen, I somehow overlooked it. So I changed my avatar to something else and it worked fine, so I changed it back and it works fine. It must be just a fluke with my install. But It's confirmed to work on 2.0.10 and under heavily modded conditions [solved]
