Announcement Font, Font Size, Smilies not displaying

by rajan » Thu Jan 27, 2011 2:42 pm

I installed phpBB3.0.8 and Anouncement mod 1.2.2. The announcements appear in the main page (index.php) of the forum. Similies not showing. Announcement text size, font color etc, html tags are embeded in the announcement. Smilies and formatting appear in the preview of announcement, but not showing in the main page. Please suggest what went wrong. Thanks in advance.

hmm, make sure the edits are ok. run the install file again, click uninstall the mod, then reinstall it.

not sure if that helps but it's worth a try.

On a side note and as a user of the MOD, I can assure you it works on 3.0.8. Seeing ALL of your smiles is the only issue and a fix is at the authors site and the author responds quickly to issues.

Double check your edits and as he says, un-install and re-install the database items. We have about 120 mods and snippets running and this MOD co-mingles well with everything we have running.

Good luck to you.

Maybe I'm a bit lost. Is that screenshot EXACTLY what you see? If so, it says the install directory is still present. Have you deleted or renamed the install directory? I know that sounds stupid but the screenshot says it's still there.

Thanks lefty74, and edbo1,

1. Yes. BBcode is not working. Attaching two images. Built in feature such as font color, and smilies are working. (showed in image). Permissions are enabled (BBCode is ON-- right side). Given smilies are working. Editor features except BBCode are working.

Hence, the issue may be due to this technical problem.

2. The screen shot is taken immediately after the Anouncement MOD installation. I renamed that folder.

thanks

I really don't like to ask this as it is so obvious. My final question is:

In the ACP / General / Posting, is allow BBCode and smilies turned on (I am sure it is)?

Are you using any enhancement programs (for BBCodes)?

Have you turned on Error Reporting in your config.php? That may show you what's up.

An finally, have you run this LIVE or just localhost? It does some strange things on localhost for me too at times.

Other than all of this, I rate my self a 4 out of 10 on fixing these issues. Sure wish I could help you more.

rajan, it looks you are on a mssql server.

version 1.2.4 should take care of your issues ( see lefty74.com9

Yes. I am using MSSQL 2005 Ent.
I tried the same set up on a different computer, MSSQL+PHP+IIS6.0+windows 2003 Ent, but the same results.


Thanks for the updates.
I will try the new version, and will notify at the earliest.

Thanks
