Extension not showing up in ACP

by revmyev » Sun Oct 20, 2019 2:55 pm

I've downloaded the Advertisement file and uploaded via FileZilla, and the extension is not showing up on my ACP extension tab. I've added the downloaded folder to the ext/ file and even when a level down and tried adding the ads folder to the ext folder. Neither worked. Am I missing anything?

I am running on phpbb 3.2.8.

Thank you,

I was able to resolve my issue by copying the extracted files to the directory /ext/phpbb/ and renaming the folder "ads"

The minute I renamed the extracted folder "ads", it became available. What you should see then is all of the files for the extension located at /ext/phpbb/ads

I hope that helps. :)

Could you please tell us what part from the instruction by the link posted above https://www.phpbb.com/extensions/installing/ is confusing or tells any different from what you did?
We'll fix that part then.

I would add something to the effect that the folder name of the extracted folder needs to be changes to simply "ads." When you extract the folder to etc/phpbb, it is named "ad-management-master" which will not work. You have to change the folder name to become "ads" located at etc/phpb/ads

I hope that helps.

The vendor of the extension is phpbb, and it must be always be phpbb/ads.

Literally just drop the entire unzipped package into the ext folder and you're done. It's that easy. If there already is a phpbb folder (as there would be due to viglink), then just merge it, as you would do with any other extensions coming from the same vendor.

PS: There is nothing called etc

Closing and locking this topic as this has nothing to do with this extension. Instructions on extension installation and guidance on how to install, update and remove extensions can all be found in our Docs and other general phpBB forum topics.
