Make sure you set permissions in the ACP, then click the New topic button. :)

Put your board at domain.com/forum/ with the blog at domain.com/forum/blog.php then adding a redirect from domain.com to domain.com/blog.php

Do you know how to change the directory of your board and how to make a re-direct?

No need to change the file names. Just in .htaccess of your forum add the following line (or change it if there is one already there):

Code: Select all

DirectoryIndex blog.php index.php index.htm index.html
That line specifies the order in which pages should be served if no file name is given in the url. First it looks for blog.php and if that does not exist, it looks for index.php and so on.
EDIT: The above will make calls to yourdomain.com/path/to/forum default to the blog, but if they access yourdomain.com/path/to/forum/index.php they will see the forum.
Don't forget to smile today. :)

I believe having the forum on a directory root is more SEO friendly?

Nice MOD. I was testing it a bit and found a few small things

If you write tags for the post in the blog and submit it you can see the tags on the side in tag cloud, but under post is written "no tags" and tags are not showed.

When you delete comment the blog shows "The operation completed successfully." It would be nice to have link back to the blog or to the post in the blog where was comment you just erased.

Thanks for the testing. I'll take a look at these and they should be fixed in the next release.

I ran the install and am able to access the Blog settings via the ACP. However, when I go to create the Categories I get the error below. It appears that I'm missing a table. Kindly let me know what SQL I can run to fix it.

Code: Select all

SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ]

Table 'my_info.BLOG_CATS_TABLE' doesn't exist [1146]

SQL

SELECT * FROM BLOG_CATS_TABLE ORDER BY cat_id

BACKTRACE

FILE: [ROOT]/includes/db/mysql.php
LINE: 175
CALL: dbal->sql_error()

FILE: [ROOT]/includes/mods/functions_blog.php
LINE: 243
CALL: dbal_mysql->sql_query()

FILE: [ROOT]/blog.php
LINE: 77
CALL: blog::get_category_list()

* Edit - Disregard... It was a simple matter of Refreshing templates, etc.

I'll leave the post information case someone else have the same issue.

The version of the phpBB Blog for olympus is feature frozen. The ascreaus version has only just been started so all feature suggestions should go to that.
