Extensions won't appear in extension manager

Post by lavalamp213 » Sat Apr 21, 2018 8:46 pm

I've just been loading several extensions and most of them were no problem, but there were 4 which did not appear in the extension manager after I moved them to the ext folder.

They are sitting in the same file (ext) with the extensions that DID appear.

All but one were from the official phpbb list.
the ones that didn't appear were:
SiteMaker
Headerbanner
moonphase
david63_Sitelogo

Any idea what is up with that?

They need to be in
/ext/authorname/extname/files_here

eg

/ext/david63/sitelogo/files_here

Sorry, I don't follow what you mean.

For example, SiteMaker is by Blitze

How would I move it, or rename or what?

Extensions must go in to a folder with their makes name on it otherwise they won't show up.

That sitemaker one is no different.
When you unzip it you get a folder called blitze
That needs to go in to /ext

So you end up with

/ext/blitze/sitemaker

Post up a screenshot of your /ext folder and its contents. Something must be wrong.

I was confused because the ones that did work were, when I unzipped them, in a folder called "phpbb"
This all worked because I moved them to
ext/phpbb/extension_name

The ones that didn't work were not in a folder called phpbb, they were in the author's name like you said, and when I included that it worked.
(sorry if this sounds stupid, I'm really tired. it's late where I am)

Anyway, I see what I was doing wrong now. Thank you.

However, this site logo file still doesn't work.

When I unzip it I get a folder called: davidsitelogo-3.2
I move it to
ext/davidsitelogo-3.2

and it doesn't work. There should be another folder with it called "sitelogo" but there isn't. It's just all the files for the extension.

you can see it here:

I tried changing the folder names but that didn't work.
I'm also having the problem where I have 2 extensions from the same author and that's making a problem. The first ine worked fine. Second one, not.

What's in the david63 folder? That's the one that isn't working so that's the one I need to see inside.

The david63 file is the one I renamed trying to fit the naming protocol.

The one beneath it, david63-sitelogo-3.2 is what you get when you unzip the downloaded file.

Neither showed up in the ACP

You have this
/ext/david63/SiteLogo/files_here
it should be this
/ext/david63/sitelogo/files_here


SiteLogo and sitelogo are not the same thing.

The first one worked, the second didn't. And I can't have two files with the same name.
