Manage Extensions Menu not visible

Post by kenmoody » Thu Jan 19, 2017 8:04 pm

After performing the upgrade to 3.2, I am no longer able to see the Manage Extensions menu in the ACP/Customise screen. I've followed the steps in the following post;

viewtopic.php?f=466&t=2284661

I have removed and reinstalled the ACP_EXTENSION_MANAGEMENT module. Disabled and re-enabled as well.

Still not seeing the menu... suggestions & ideas very much welcomed. Thank you!

Do you have any extensions that utilize the Extensions tab?

I am trying to add a couple, but even after uploading the files to the ext folder, nothing shows up. Trying to add;

Tapatalk

https://tapatalk.com/download_phpbb.php

and

ACP Add User

https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... dd_user_2/

Files have been extracted and uploaded as described. These extensions were installed and active before I upgraded to 3.2 and when I ran the upgrade I did not remove them first (the particular set of instructions I first found here did not indicate to do so, it was only after the upgrade attempt that I saw a different set of instructions which said I should do that but by then it was too late). So I am wondering if there is something in the DB that is hosed.

Many thanks!

The add users extension should look like below:
/ext/phpbbmodders/adduser/

Did you run this query?

Code: Select all

SELECT * FROM phpbb_acl_options WHERE auth_option = 'a_extensions'
Change the table prefix if yours is not phpbb-.

Also, did you clear the cache after reinstalling the Module? By deleting everything from the /cache folder except index.htm and .htaccess?

Steve, thank you for the help. I have cleared the cache multiple times. Also ran the query you suggested, returned;

MySQL returned an empty result set (i.e. zero rows).

Any other suggestions would be welcomed and appreciated. Thanks!

Yes, I deleted and then re-added the Extension Management module in the Module Manager for
ACP -> Customise . See screenshot below. But it is still not visible when viewing the Customise tab.

Thanks!

I think there has been some misunderstanding here from the beginning. are you talking about the left menu extension management section or are you talking about a tab that says extensions?

I think you are talking about the extension menu from the customize tab that should be showing up right where the style management shows up.

if so, it should be there regardless of whether you have uploaded any extensions or not.

Lumpy, this is correct. And it is not, which is preventing me from managing any extensions. I cannot seem to get it to appear.

Thanks!

Hey all, bumping this as I am still experiencing the issue and would love to find a solution.

To clarify & reiterate, the Manage Extensions menu in the ACP/Customise screen is not visible. I have disabled and re-enabled the module and cleared the cache repeatedly. Still not visible.

Any additional help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all very much!

Maybe it's a permission issue?
