Thanks for the fast reply ChriZathens -
I have attempted to install 3 times and got to the same point each time: (a correct install according to automod)- and no ACP 'button' options.
#1 General question: to help me clean up extra files I dont need...
The old installation files were NOT able to be deleted..
I moved them on my server to a place called 'DELETE ME' and no matter what I try - I cant delete them...
I've spent almost 90 minutes just trying to delete the old files;any ideas?
#3 Specific Question regarding an error I WAS able to find
-#2 General question that may solve my problem:
The 'file edit' section listed tons of things to change -- and under it says' success' -
so Does that mean I do not have to manually edit all that because AutoMod Automatically edited all of it?
(Or do i still have to edit something someplace...)
If automod DOES do all those fixes... then the problem is elsewhere:
when installing 'part 2 ' of your addon (though this may be only a tutorial thats not needed I am not sure... see details below the code for more info)
FIND: in /functions.php (not found - I cant find anything even close)
Code: Select all
/* Some examples to help you understand what you should put here:
1. If your forum home is http://www.yoursite.com/forum and your homepage is at http://www.yoursite.com/site, you could simply put ../site in the following line
2. If your forum home is http://www.yoursite.com/forum and your homepage is at http://www.yoursite.com/, you could simply put ../ in the following line
3. If your forum home is http://www.yoursite.com/forum and your homepage is at http://www.yourothersite.com/, you could directly add the address (http://www.yourothersite.com/) in the following line
For this mod let's presume we have example 1 */
'U_HOMEPAGE' => "../site",
So in summary perhaps I didn't fully install it; maybe I missed a few steps:
Code: Select all
'S_SHOW_HOMEPAGE' => ($config['show_homepage']) ? true : false ,
'S_SHOW_HOMEPAGE_IN_NEW' => ($config['show_homepage_in_new']) ? true : false ,
'U_HOMEPAGE' => $config['homepage_url'],
'U_HOMEPAGE_TITLE' => $config['homepage_title'],
1: install with automod- (worked - no errors - but also NO ACP buttons in ANY of my 5 active styles)
2: choose DETAILS (of this mod) and click 'install' down near the bottom. a 'cant find' error in includes/functions.php" - - I have tried to figure out where to manually put the text - but I cant figure it out.
3: choose DETAILS (same place as #2) and 'apply' this mod to different styles. I have no clue what the "Apply these changes to this template" area is for. If this is a three step installation process it would be nice to mention that up in your front post;
I expected a one step install and a working button in my ACP after about a 3 minute install...
What I got was a mess that I've spent 5 hours with now - but I appreciate your support... it is probably something I just don't know to do... a step I missed...
