A way to disable icons ? (Image icons i mean)

Some styles use font awesome icons, and don't look good on it

There no quick way but I can see if I can add some code to disable them...
Will get back to you later..

If you wanted to manually disable them for the minute you could edit ext/phpbbireland/portal/includes/func.php and comment out the assignment lines...

I've only made one update recently as that's all that was needed (see the GIT for changes if needed)...

I'm currently working on other projects to rest my brain... I needed a break after eleven or more years on the portal (3.0 & 3.1)... Will be back working on portal as soon as I'm free and rested but as you might gather, it takes time to recover...

If I use routes /phpBB3/app.php/portal portal page works ok,
but home link Portal and link Portal in menu lead to /phpBB3/portal and I get this message:

Code: Select all

The requested URL /phpBB3/portal/ was not found on this server.
What am I missing, or what I do wrong?
I've had this problem, caused by the forum being in /phpbb3/ (not the root) and bad configuration.
I solved it by;
1) Enable URL rewrite in ACP/General/Server Settings/Path Settings
2) Enable RewriteBase /phpBB3/ in .htaccess

Pretty basic setup steps, dependant on mod_rewrite being available, but I missed them on install.

The next updates may help to fix the issue but mod rewrite works too ;)

The portal is visible to everyone by default... check your phpbb permissions...

I am also having the same issue as reported. I have been using the Portal since March without any problems, but last Friday the Portal disappeared for all of my users. I can still see it as an admin, but it is disabled for all other users. Do you have any ideas for a fix? Or what other information can I get for you so you can investigate?

I have to assume some change to the phpBB permissions has occurred... Did you add any mods or any updates prior to the disappearance?

The change won't be in the portal tab, it will be in the general permissions...

Check ACP > Permissions (tab) > Group Permissions > User...
Check "Advanced Permissions" and make sure in portal tab that "Can view portal" is checked...
Check for other groups too...

I did include permissions for registered > view portal in the setup...

Code: Select all

array('permission.add', array('u_k_portal'))...
array('permission.permission_set', array('REGISTERED', 'u_k_portal', 'group'))...
I may need to make a slight change to

Code: Select all

"array('permission.add', array('u_k_portal'))"
to:

Code: Select all

"array('permission.add', array('u_k_portal', true))"
I thought true was the default???

It looks like for me the portal tab has entirely disappeared. I did make a permission change on Friday, 7/15/16 that allowed all of my users to create blogs using the "Ultimate Blog Extension" which seems to be when they lost the ability to see the portal. However I reverted the changes and the portal is still missing for them, so I think that might have been a coincidence. Let me show you some screenshots of my ACP.

No "Portal" Tab under user permissions: Image

The extension is installed and up to date:

It seems like only the Super Admins can see the Portal. Even my admins, and moderators cannot view it. If you need anything else from me to keep investigating please let me know.

From the images it looks like the Board3 portal is installed, I don't see the Kiss Portal... are we talking about Board3 or Kiss or do you have both installed?

I apologize, my board 3 portal also stopped working as well, I was on the wrong extension. I am still experiencing these problems with Kiss. I have the extension installed, and active. With Kiss, I cannot even see that it is active. Here are the screenshots of the issue:

I have no idea why this error is occurring. Sorry for the confusion but I look forward to hearing back.

If both extensions have stopped working, I can only assume it's a direct result of another extension install or a change in phpBB core code (another extension being the most likely candidate)...

If you can identify your recent additions I can install them and see if I can cause the same issue...

Installed portal from the github on a fresh 3.1.9 installed phpbb, was smooth and the portal and blocks seem to work, but the ACP -> Portal tab doesn't load, instead spitting an error

Code: Select all

Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'phpbb\exception\runtime_exception' with message 'FSOCK_DISABLED' in /home/public_html/phpBB3/phpbb/file_downloader.php:94 Stack trace: 
...
any ideas how to fix that?
