I am trying to install this portal on my forums and I was told to use automod to do it but I try and install automod by putting the root files inside my forum files and then going to /install on the end of my forums but when I do I get this error.

[phpBB Debug] PHP Warning: in file [ROOT]/umil/umil.php on line 157: include(../includes/db/db_tools.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory

I just looked online for some more information and apparently automod is not compatible with 3.1... So how else do I download the portal I wish to use?

Is the portal itself for 3.0 or 3.1? I'm not aware of any portals that exist for 3.1 yet.

There are a few portal extensions for 3.1. If what you are trying to install is [RC] Board3 Portal 2.1.0-RC2, then, just copy the board3 folder to your root/ext folder. Then go to ACP/CUSTOMISE/ And Enable the extension from there.

In the documentation you will find Installing Extensions, also, all extension support is via the author not in general support. And, you don't need automod for 3.1, extensions install without modifying core code so no editing required.

Is it possible to add in different styles? I'm using Black instead of prosilver.

Also instead of having it as /portal can I make it so when people type in my link that's the page it brings them to?

Yes, extensions work on all of your installed board styles.

But you havent told us what portal extension you are speaking of....
You should have just asked for support on how to install the extension, in the extension support topic i posted.

As i said, extension related issues should be posted in their appropriate topic.
Also, when you have a problem, please provide all the details if you want to be assisted better and sooner.

Do you want to use the portal page, as an index page for your main domain root?

If so, follow these instructions:
https://github.com/board3/Board3-Portal ... -subfolder

If thats not it, please explain again and provide us with an url to your board. You should always provide it for people to know where to look at and provide a fix. Updating your profile with it may be an idea :)
