ACP : Customize -> Manage Extensions Missing

Post by Birkley » Mon Dec 29, 2014 8:43 pm

Hi All,

Let me try to be short yet very concise so you don't have to read paragraphs worth of info:
  • - Upgraded phpBB 3.0.x to 3.1.2 for a customer due to security issues
  • - Customer at one time had tried to install Auto-Mod. I believe they failed.
  • - I am currently trying to install a "Recent Topics" Mod for the pbtech theme
  • - ROOT PROBLEM : "Manage Extensions" does not appear as an option in ACP
To eliminate a few other questions before you ask them:
1.) I have permissions. I am an admin/founder.
2.) The forum is quite old and has a significant amount of posts within it.
3.) I've verified that i've placed the extension in the right place and it works via testing on a fresh phpbb installation.
4.) I tried deleting and rebuilding the ACP module for Extensions. No dice.

Other posts I've already tried:
viewtopic.php?f=466&t=2269026

I would be incredibly grateful for any help on this. What I'm ultimately trying to do is get the "Manage Extensions" section back so I can install "Recent Topics" by paybas (https://github.com/PayBas/RecentTopics) to my theme.

Again, thank you for any time spent trying to help me conquer this issue! :D

How did you do that?

I tried two different ways. When it wasn't showing up the first time, I tried the following:
  1. First Deleted : Systems -> Module Management -> ACP -> Customise -> [delete] Extension Management
  • Then Added : Systems -> Module Management -> ACP -> Customise -> Extension Management -> Manage Extensions -> ACP_EXTENSIONS (Module, Enabled = Yes, Displayed = Yes, Choose Module = ACP_EXTENSIONS, Choose Module Mode = Manage Extensions
Didn't work.

Then tried :

Code: Select all

DELETE FROM `phpbb_modules` WHERE `module_langname` = 'ACP_CAT_DOT_MODS'
and readded:

Code: Select all

UPDATE `phpbb_modules` SET `module_id` = 32, `left_id` = 291, `right_id` = 296 WHERE `module_langname` = 'ACP_CAT_DOT_MODS'
Still didn't work. I've also flushed the cache a few times during this process just to be sure.

ACP_CAT_DOT_MODS is nothing to do with the Manage Extensions module.

ACP_CAT_DOT_MODS is the tab named Extensions where extension configuration options can be found for some extensions.

Good to know. Regardless, the tab isn't showing either :)

The extensions tab will only show if there is an extension using it.

That should be:
SYSTEM -> Module Management -> ACP -> Customise
Create new module: Extension management
Module language name: ACP_EXTENSION_MANAGEMENT
Module type: Category
Parent: Customise
Module enabled: Yes

Verified Below:
ACP -> Customise -> Extension management [Edit | Delete | Disable]

*clicking on edit*
Module language name: ACP_EXTENSION_MANAGEMENT
Module type : Category
Parent : Customize
Module Enabled : Yes

Doesn't show up in Customise.

When you click on SYSTEM -> Module Management -> ACP -> Customise
does the module show on the list there? If so, is it enabled?

I don't understand where this came fromImageStandard phpBB doesn't have a module called "Manage extensions". Following my instructions above you should have:

Whoops, had another level added. Removed and adjusted to match your settings. Still no "Manage Extensions" section under Customise.

Not sure what the problem is. Might be worth replacing:
/includes/acp/acp_extensions.php
and
/includes/acp/info/acp_extensions.php
with fresh versions from the Latest Version package in case it there is some file corruption.

I've updated both files. I don't see an extension.php file, I only see acp_extension.php files in both directories.

Still no menu under customise.

So, I've confirmed its something in the mysql DB. I ran a "replace into" query from the production install and schema into a fresh install of PHPBB where the "manage extensions" option was working. After I did so, the "manage extensions" option disappeared in a fresh install. Any ideas?

Sample query:

Code: Select all
