Even better. Copy the entire content of footer and header to the footer and header that comes with the mod and dont change do the changes above. That way you can control them better. But both ways work fine.

I like this mod v. much. But i want to set my forum in root. I mean when user try to enter my domain they will redirect to my forum index page as they doing now. And there will be link for these folder. Is this possible?

And can you please tell me the code of that mini bar panel so that i can add them in custom page of my forum?

Read this a couple of posts back: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... #p10146555

I have it working on a live board as is described above. I am in the process of writing it up properly and not having so much hard coding involved. I believe DoYouSpeakWak will then have it, or something similar, as an alternative.

I can imagen your board works a bit like this. instant redirect to phpBB3 directory. Test > www.inferno-magic.dk
In that case its very simple. just dont upload the root/index.php then the rest of the folders will still work.

Yes the panels can be used anywere within the phpbb core. But its not that simple, the easiest way is to copy and edit the template files that comes with this mod. See first post and also read mixstars post about it, together they should give you a good place to start.

This mod uses no sql or install files. all text are stored in the language/en(or whatever language you use)/mods/. No search engine at the moment.

I will review the current version make a few changes and update it to beta soon. Later when i learn how i wanna add a acp module and its own tables etc.

Thanks! The frontpage installation went somewhat smoothly, and is now working.

HOWEVER, somehow, during installation, I managed to screw up my forums. ^^. All the links off of the frontpage work now, except forums. If I go to my forums, this is the error I get now.

=========

Warning: include(./forum/common.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /hermes/web08/b1387/****.*******/forum/index.php on line 15

Warning: include() [function.include]: Failed opening './forum/common.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php-5.2.1/lib/php') in /hermes/web08/b1387/****.*******/forum/index.php on line 15

Fatal error: Call to a member function session_begin() on a non-object in /hermes/web08/b1387/****.*******/forum/index.php on line 18

=========

Any clue what that might mean? Or how I messed it up?

Check to make sure you have all the paths set correctly for your installation. It sounds to me like it can't find common.php.

If you have carried out the install on a board already running in a subfolder there shouldn't be a problem.

Its a very simple mod and there wont be any huge changes before rc, exept added features.

Updated to 0.0.3. No need to update if you use 0.0.2, the latest changes are purely on the install files and modx.

Alright, then, I'll give it a try and let you know how it goes. :)
EDIT: Actually, I hadn't noticed that you have to install it outside of the phpBB folder. My forum is in the root directory of my site right now. I may end up moving it and then try it out, but that'll be later. Thanks!

If you actually you read the whole thread you will see that it is possible to have your board in the root: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... #p10146555

Thanks Mixstar. I had seen that earlier but forgot about it. Anyway, I installed, but here's what I get: http://forummafia.2x.nu/phpbbmods/frontpage/
The two menus aren't loading properly where they should be. I'm pretty sure I made all of the correct edits and changed all of the needed filenames.

It looks like css problems. Double check the edits and make sure the frontpage.css file is uploaded

Alright, it turns out that for whatever reason, I just had to re-upload the template files... but whatever.

Anyway, I have a request: can you possibly integrate this into the ACP? Because it's somewhat of a pain to have to edit language files every time. Although I appreciate you using language files instead of making me edit all the template files for each style. :D :lol:

EDIT: by the way, if you don't put in enough text for a page, it breaks the style.

I would try to fix it myself, but I don't want to screw it up even further. :roll:

Thanks!
