Is there some role of PHP version as well here, for the installation of this "MOD"?
Thanks,

I have no idea what is causing the problem (I haven't written any PHP for ages), but I know that updating your PHP would fix it - and it's probably a good idea anyway, as you're running a PHP version too low to update to phpBB 3.1.

EDIT: __DIR__ was added in PHP 5.3, apparently. Either update your PHP (recommended), or replace __DIR__ with dirname(__FILE__).

Thanks for the hint callumacrae, this helps. Appreciate your time.

This solved two problem of mine - first I had a warning in Admin Panel about the PHP version , which I had been ignoring all while and second this 'idea-MOD' was not working.

I thought that the host has to update the PHP version and not me but it happened to be other way round.I got it going my updating .htaccess file though and 'idea MOD' seems to work now. Though I still have some follow up:

1. Whenever a new idea is posted, the author of its comes as "Anonymous", why?
2. Can we delete the idea itself? I'm able to delete "the posts made by idea" but not the idea itself.


Edit: I realized that I've deleted the underlying topics and not the idea...oops I think that's the reason 2 point, above, comes in... :oops:
Thanks,

With some more time with this and I could solve the first query here:

2. Can we delete the idea itself? I'm able to delete "the posts made by idea" but not the idea itself.


Edit: I realized that I've deleted the underlying topics and not the idea...oops I think that's the reason 2 point, above, comes in... :oops:
1. I've changed this in the ideas/includes/ideas.php file

Code: Select all

'poster_id'			=> IDEAS_POSTER_ID,
to

Code: Select all

poster_id'			=> $user->data['user_id'],
and this seems to work so far.

2. I did not get a work around for second query yet - can we delete the idea if the "posts created by idea are itself deleted"? Possibly someone can assist.
Thanks,

Is there any way round for that. Please advise.

Hi,

I've this "Ideas "MOD" " on my board and at "Ideas Home" I see the heading as "phpBB Ideas" - is there any way to change it to something different, e.g., "New Ideas"? Please advise.
Thanks,

There's nothing under Top Ideas but when I go click View All one idea appears. So I don't know why that idea isn't appearing on the ideas index page..

Any help here...?

Has development for the Ideas Center stopped or something? It's been given barely any attention. I would say none at all

My knowledge about phpBB development is limited as of now, however one observation I've which might help you. When you say
There's nothing under Top Ideas but when I go click View All one idea appears. So I don't know why that idea isn't appearing on the ideas index page..
- are you logged in and then you see "no idea/s listed", when you click on "View All..."? Because as a guest when I click on "View All...", is shows this error:
General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ]

Unknown column 'ideas_status' in 'where clause' [1054]
I think that gives a clue.

Hope this helps.
Thanks,

I just fixed that error - don't think it's related to the top ideas issue though :/ the general error's gone (I hope) but the top ideas still isn't appearing on the Ideas index page

I think this file is relevant to the top ideas table?
