Does this portal take the place of index.php? or something to the effect of portal.php?

by default, he wants you to basicly replace your index.php and the old forum view is replaced by board.php.

You dont have to do it that way tho, its simple enough to just keep the index as it is and make the portal a diff file if you want too.

Theoretically then, I could have a different portal installed as portal.php, my forum as index.php, and could I have this mod as news.php, for example?

Theoretically, You can of course make it do what ever is with in your skill to do. Its not going to be that way out of the box. You'll have to make choices on your own to achieve that.

Okay. I have set this up on a test forum that isn't live to anyone except for me. If I want this to mod to open with news.php, do I need to go through the files and change the references to index.php to news.php? Or is there a simpler way of doing it?

Well, the way I did it was, I placed my phpBB3 installation in the www.domain.com/community directory, then-

Rename:
{phpBB3root}/styles/{yourSTYLE}/template/index_body.html
To:
{phpBB3root}/styles/{yourSTYLE}/template/board_body.html
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Then upload the contents of the MOD's root folder to your phpBB3 install, EXCEPT these 2 files:
-index.php (this would go in your domain's root folder. as a 'homepage' of your site.)
-board_body.html (we already have this file and dont need to upload a different one.)

Now, the index.php you placed in your domain root would show errors because it is outside your phpBB3 root folder, but this can be fixed!

Code: Select all

----- [FIND] -----------------
define ( 'IN_PHPBB', true );
$phpbb_root_path   = './';
----- [Do in yourself]---------
replace the ./ with whatever directory your phpBB is installed in.
Such as './forum/' or './community/' without quotations.

I'll give that a try, thank you :) Now, what if you have your forum and other portal installed in a subdomain? What would I replace the ./ with here?

Code: Select all

----- [FIND] -----------------
define ( 'IN_PHPBB', true );
$phpbb_root_path   = './';
----- [Do in yourself]---------
replace the ./ with whatever directory your phpBB is installed in.

I have everything working but it won't let me add new banners/information to the Manage advertisements block. The images are there, I filled in the information and it said that there weren't any to add/update.

KaLeL16, Follow the instructions given 6 posts above :)

I"ve noticed that this mod has made it so that I cannot login from the board itself. I have to login from the portal. Is there a way that I can have it so that I am able to login from the board, too? Also, I'm a little confused. Do I still need the index.php file in my board directory?
