Ideas Support topic

Post by tmbackoff » Sat Jul 13, 2013 7:57 pm

Hello,

In response to the numerous support requests in the [Discuss] Introducing phpBB Ideas topic, the team has decided to split off support into a dedicated topic. Please use this topic for all support requests regarding installing, configuring, and using the phpBB Ideas system on your board. Bugs found should be reported to the Website Bug Tracker.

Thanks!

Yep! It's easier to install than most mods, as it doesn't require and file modifications - you just copy in the ideas directory and follow the instructions.
It is everything in the directory or the directory itself? If it's the former, it's going to replace a lot of my files :/ When I tried the latter, I just got errors when going to /ideas/install.php

EDIT: I did see "To install, copy config.sample.php to config.php and change the configuration. The current configuration settings:" but I don't quite understand it. do I copy the contents of the config.sample.php to config.php (since replacing doesn't make sense)

EDIT: I did the above; nope, still get errors

I pretty much still don't know how to install it >_>



EDIT: I got it now. install.php is supposed to be in the root directory...

Copy the "ideas" directory from the phpbb-ideas repo to an "ideas" directory within your phpBB installation, not the individual files into the root directory (that would kill everything).

okay I did that, and managed to install it, but I had to move install.php outside of the ideas directory, otherwise I get errors. I installed it, but I still get errors when going to /ideas/index.php

I don't think you should have moved install.php, but if it hasn't errored then it should be fine. Did you create and modify ideas/config.php?

define('PHPBB_ROOT_PATH', '../phpBB3/');
define('IDEAS_FORUM_ID', 1);
define('IDEAS_POSTER_ID', 1);

Try this instead:

Code: Select all

<?php

// phpBB Ideas configuration file

define('PHPBB_ROOT_PATH', '../');
define('IDEAS_FORUM_ID', 1);
define('IDEAS_POSTER_ID', 1);

I have a slight problem that I'm not sure how to fix.

http://chenschool.elementfx.com/phpBB3/ideas/index.php

I posted an idea and it was automatically rated by default...so of course there's 1 green arrow and 0 red (saw the changes on github and added them in earlier today)

However, under "Latest idea" there is no number besides the arrows. Under "Top Ideas", there is. Though for "Top Ideas", the arrows aren't side by side, and I don't know if that's the style or what.

See screenshot:

How do I fix the issue with the numbers not showing up under Latest Idea? Also, is there any way I could make the ratings under Top Ideas side by side, AND also "Top Ideas" over "Latest Ideas" like here?

Something else, any reason why this mod cannot use my overall_header and overall_footer files? I was able to make the change but still. Also, any reason for having a idea bot account? That shouldn't be needed, the permission for forums are already there right? Edit that setting was for posts and not topics :(
Please note that I will not be porting any of my mods to phpBB 3.1. Sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.

After looking at this, I felt that the boards overall header and footer from the current style should have been used even if it mean editing some template files. Also is it possible to get rid of the bot requirements? Other then that I do like it :)

Can't; template inheritance doesn't work across directories.

I also don't like the bot requirements...I want to have the topic be posted by the person who posted the idea, not a bot.
