No, it is not. It just calls a few functions I wrote and creates some template variables.

Great portal, Smartor's portal has the ability to show blocks on the forum index page as well, Do you plan on having this option available for your as well?

I think you need more padding within those blocks, the login looks too close.

I don't recall the portal itself having that feature. That may have been another one of his MODs.

In portal.php, you didn't specify a forum to pull news from.

Code: Select all

$CFG['news_forum'] = array(2,3,4);

Worked like a charm, my bad i thought forum id 1 was created from start.

And thank you very much for the mod, it was the only reason i didn't update from phpbb2 to phpbb3 (forum users just loved the ezPortal)

Okay, I'm new to the concept of portals and CMSes, so a coupla questions ...

Does easyPortal work with the prosilver_se style?

I just need to integrate a forum, announcement/news, and chat room ... would easyPortal support this?

Thanks!

If the style is prosilver or subsilver2 based, you can use those template files without a problem. Just copy portal_body.html to your template folder.

Alternatively, it could mean the forum id you chose doesn't exist, like the ID of 1.
