Damn you and your "Fully Integrated SHoutbox" and "100% Valid XHTML 1.0" templates! :p

Now I bet fewer people will even bother with my shoutbox... I feel so unloved. :disappointed:

Oh, and by the way, nice hack. If I were into portals, I'd use it (except for the shoutbox, I made my own damnit! :D)

Works great, bar one problem. I have the following message coming up whenever i access the page

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /absolute path to forums/BVE/forums/vbindex.php on line 747

I have the vbindex in the same dir as the forums, so i commented that chdir peice out as instructed, and am getting this error, any ideas anyone?

EDIT> It looks like it pertains to the eventcache.php file, which i have put in the /includes/cron dir as instructed, so it isn't down to it being in the wrong place

MindTrix
03 Jan 2004, 13:34
What version of php are you running?

The webhost is running php v4.2.1

SB2002
03 Jan 2004, 13:50
Ah, in an update i think i got it, looks like I had to type in the absolute url to the forums, and THEN comment it out? go figure. But whatever it was, it got rid of that bloody message, lol.

I can get this to work when I put it in my root forum folder, but not my website root folder. I think the thing tripping me up is entering the path. Exactly what format would it be it? (Keep in mind Im pretty much n00b at this.)

I can't get this to work period. I have uninstalled it for the time, deleted all database entries I can find.

WOW! This thing rocks! one question...
How to you make the custom blocks?


Edit: THIS IS THE BEST PORTAL EVER AND THE EASIST TO INSTALL!

MindTrix
03 Jan 2004, 17:53
NTLDR i got a small request, Can you post an add on to show the shoutbox on the forum index page? Either as a side column or vertical? I know this steers away from the Portal aspect of it, but it would be nice to have it there aswell :)

daniely
03 Jan 2004, 17:55
its there I installed it you can see it on my site!

nemesis01
03 Jan 2004, 18:47
I could only get this working when in my root forum folder aswell, still it makes little difference and is very nice thanks.

daniely
03 Jan 2004, 19:07
that is because you forgot to change the paths in the templates probally I think you should make the template mods again!

Rose
03 Jan 2004, 19:19
Kickass with the hack release! I don't mean to spam the thread, but wanted to congratulate you.

The first post has been updated with vBindex RC2, the one I was planning on releasing for vB3 RC1 had it been released on Monday ;)

RC2 contains the new templates that have the expaning/contracting blocks and a few other new features, which are listed in the first post.

If you thought installing Pre-RC2 was easy, wait untill you see this! Although there are no big changes for those of you upgrading, fresh installs are alot easier and the installer guides you through each step of the process and automates as much as it posibly can :D

MindTrix
03 Jan 2004, 23:16
Oh no guess i gotta upgrade :)

The list of new features is making me drool ;)

not all the files are in the attachment

eventcache.php - forums/includes/cron


thats not in the attachment not are the install instructions :(

Also, i have just upgraded from the first release to this one, and now every time i access vbioptions i get this message

Fatal error: Failed opening required './global.core' (include_path='/usr/lib/php:.') in /absolute path to forums/BVE/forums/admincp/vbioptions.php

I wasn't getting this error before, anyone have any ideas?

MindTrix
03 Jan 2004, 23:48
yes i edited the HEADER part to delete the default vB buttons across the top as they was not needed but that was all.

SB2002
03 Jan 2004, 23:50
I did that too, the new header template removes them anyways, so all i did was rename the old header, then replace it with the new one which is prefixed with _RC2 at the end. The upgrade went fine with me from start to finish, so i don't think it could be that, might be wrong tho

NTLDR
03 Jan 2004, 23:52
Missing file added, problem with vbioptions.php fixed.

Error with the templates importing has been changed, however there is a posibility you may lose customisations to vBindex templates only.

MindTrix
03 Jan 2004, 23:57
Ok so what should i do ? Re-download the zip, re upload ALL files??

SB2002
03 Jan 2004, 23:58
thanks dude, that's fixed the vbioptions problem i was having. Great hack :up:

NTLDR
04 Jan 2004, 00:01
Only changes where vbioptions.php (fixed a minor bug), eventcache.php was missing, so upload that one and vbifunctions_upgrade.php which is the one that caused you problems with the install. Just upload those 3 and overwrite where needed.

04 Jan 2004, 00:03

surely it's just simpler to rename the file?

SnowBot
04 Jan 2004, 00:26
ok i have 2 other little problems :(

the navbar menus dont work, they dont link and dont have the dropdowns

also the shoutbox button is just blank :(

NTLDR
04 Jan 2004, 00:29
It seems vB3 Gamma was being funny about exporting the phrases. I've updated the zip with a fresh vbindex_phrases.xml file which you can upload and re-run the installer to import them.

The navbar is one of the three (the other two being pm_popup_script and headinclude) templates you need to edit to use the full URL.

04 Jan 2004, 00:33
Mine stopped working after step 5 and then wouldn't let me re-install it :(

SnowBot
04 Jan 2004, 00:33
cool, one last thing :) How do you move the blocks around? Like have the shoutbox top right and others on the left ?

NTLDR
04 Jan 2004, 00:36
On the options page you'll see Left/Right Block 1, 2 etc, select the content for that block from the dropdown list and make sure its enabled :)

MindTrix
04 Jan 2004, 00:39
On mine the drop down box on the options page only show NONE blank blank BOTH so im guessing it should say left and right

NTLDR
04 Jan 2004, 00:44
Correct *lol* The phrases didn't export properly from my site which is why there are odd bits of text missing here and there, download the zip again and replace vbindex_phrases.xml and run vbiupgraded.php?step=10 and it will re-import them and add the missing ones.

SnowBot
04 Jan 2004, 00:44
did the upgrade and re-run the installer to import them.
but now i get a blank page :(

NTLDR
04 Jan 2004, 01:00
It should still have re-imported the templates and phrases (assuming you finished each step), thats just some left over debug code, nothing to worry about.

SnowBot
04 Jan 2004, 01:06
yep looks like my browser froze while redoing the phrase part, its back BUT still the menus dont work and no dropdowns :(

www.synergyforums.com (http://www.synergyforums.com)

another thing you said regarding the placement of the boxes, cant you have some on the left and have some on the right ? I dont get how you do this as it seems to change them all ? :( /me is confused....lol

the shoutbox button is still blank :(

NTLDR
04 Jan 2004, 01:08
The menus won't work untill you have edited at minium the headinclude and navbar templates to make sure all links in <script> <a> and <form> tags have a full URL.

Schorsch,

Same thing happens to me when vbindex.php and vbiconfig.php are in the
root directory, but when you move them to your forums directory, the images are there.

What needs to be changed to get it to work from the root? Anyone?

Thanks

I don't know the solution to your other questions but I think I know how to fix this one. Go into vBulletin Admin Control Panel. Under vBulletin Options look for path to save cookies. For the path, simply enter a '/' (without the '). Do not leave it blank.

The menus won't work untill you have edited at minium the headinclude and navbar templates to make sure all links in <script> <a> and <form> tags have a full URL.


while i wait to be recognized on your forums, let me ask this here

SPECIFICALLY you say that the url must be included in all tags, and there is some confusion over getting this exactly

from headinclude

<script type="text/javascript" src="clientscript/vbulletin_global.js"></script>


does this need to be edited and if so, where does $vboptions/ be inserted or should i put the actual hard url in there and how should it look?

from navbar

<td><span class="navbar"><a href="$vboptions[forumhome].php?$session[sessionurl]">$vboptions[bbtitle]</a></span> $navbits[breadcrumb]</td>


would that become [b]$vboptions[bburl]/$vboptions[forumhome].php?$session[sessionurl]

i'll just leave these two examples at the moment

it's a little frustrating :(

NTLDR
04 Jan 2004, 19:36
Morgalis, the first one would become $vboptions[bburl]/clientscript etc and the second one is correct.

thank you for you response :)

here is a little more detail for others that find themselves at odd as i did


okay

in headinclude search for <script type="text/javascript" src="
in each instance you need to put http://www.yourdomain.com/forums/ after the scr=" and before the text that is already there
eg: clientscript/vbulletin_global.js would be http://www.yourdomain.com/forums/clientscript/vbulletin_global.js

in navbar search for href=" and following the " in every instance, you want to insert http://www.yourdomain.com/forums
eg: <!--<td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="$vboptions[forumhome].php?$session[sessionurl]">Home</a></td>--> would be
<!--<td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="http://www.yourdomain.com/forums/$vboptions[forumhome].php?$session[sessionurl]">Home</a></td>-->


you also need to follow the same steps for each instance of script type="text/javascript" src="

in pm_popup search for window.open"/private.php? and after the " insert the url

window.open("http://www.yourdomain.com/forums/private.php?

hopefully i didn't miss anything and this will make it clearer

chas_h
04 Jan 2004, 22:38
Fwiw, I have a non-hacked version of VB3 RC-1 installed in my /forum directory with the root directory as the location for Vbindex. This is what I assume would be the 'standard' directory setup.
Has anyone successfully installed Vbindex with this directory setup yet? If so, did you have to deviate at all from the instructions at the beginning of this thread?

Henry.

NTLDR
04 Jan 2004, 22:45
Visit vbiupgraded.php?step=7 to carry on from where your browser crashed. I've run the installer on standard RC1 and Gamma installed numerous times with no issues at all. If you have the google/alexa toolbar installed you may wish to disable them as its known to cause problems with vB's install/upgrade process and the same may occur here.

lolwtfomgoic, there is no way this will prevent access to the ACP, it maybe usefull to post the errors you got emailed, otherwise nothing can be done to help.

chas_h
04 Jan 2004, 22:49
Thanks for replying.... I had Google toolbar running and that must have been it. The thing is, should I go and delete all the tables already created by the partial install and start a new install? If not it won't get beyond those steps.

Henry.

P.s. I just saw the link to the 7th step you provided so that I can pick it up from there, thanks again.

H.

04 Jan 2004, 23:07
No luck with that, even tried it on another box without Google installed. Will clean out the new Mysql talbes and start from scratch. Is there anything else I should change/remove to get back to the start again?

H.

NTLDR
04 Jan 2004, 23:24
Starting from the begining isn't going to help in your case, however if you want to you'll need to go through the installer files and reverse all the queries.

Its been reported that the phrases/templates can be imported normally via the ACP Download/Upload part of the respective XML file, however I can't confirm it will work and not have adverse effects.

chas_h
04 Jan 2004, 23:42
Well, I may just start from scratch (forum and all) as it was a test forum anyway. I am still evaluating whether to use Vb3 or the older Vb2.3.3 for a new project.
But is there possibly another reason that this is failing at step #7? And just to confirm what it says in the opening page of this install, those edits to the vbiconfig.php and the template edits don't need to be done til 'after' the install has been run, correct?

H.

NTLDR
04 Jan 2004, 23:52
The edits can be done at any time, however vBindex either won't work at all, or won't work properly untill they are done. I recomend at least doing the vbiconfig.php one straight away as it gives you the exact changes and you'll need it to even view vBindex.

Other reasons for failing to install? No reason for it not too, if it managed to import vB's Style and Phrases there shouldn't be any reason why it can't import much smaller files.

If you have either TWT's Shoutbox, or vBindex 2.x install the shouts will be converted to the vBindex 3 format during the installation :)


For those of you having errors with the installer, re-download the zip file, a few changes have been made which should correct the errors that alot of you are reporting, eg templates causing DB errors.

If the installer dies at any step, just re-visit that URL and it should continue for the majority of steps.

Warning: chdir(): No such file or directory (errno 2) errors are cause because you either A) haven't followed the clear instructions on the first step of the install process to edit vbiconfig.php or B) your upgrading from a different vBi version, in which case you need to change the CHDIR_PATH in vbiconfig.php, instructions are in the file.

Yes, only monday to friday are supposed to show, otherwise the calendar becomes rediculously wide in comparision with the other blocks. Events will only show after the cron job for vBindex has run, this is added during the install and listed as vBindex Event Cache in the Schedualed Task Manager.

There is only only file edit to make, which is to vbiconfig.php to add the correct path to your forums, where the files should be uploaded is listed in Upload.txt.

I can't help people with image folders, if you don't know the URL to your own image folder there is no way on earth I'm going to. It should be a full URL containing no variables, suitable examples include:


/forums/images/button (this assumes the forums directory is in the root of the domain, ie domain.com/forums)
http://www.mydomain.com/forums/images/button

Considering I have no others style, just using the default and the image url of my banner is: http://www.mydomain.com/forum/images/misc/vbulletin3_logo_white.gif ( same for others ) then how can I make vbindex understand ?
As I said I've put my full url in headinclude, navbar, put in anything needs, but nothing displayed correctly except the post icons.

Yes, only monday to friday are supposed to show, otherwise the calendar becomes rediculously wide in comparision with the other blocks

My forum (www.martialartsplanet.com) has most dates at the weekend - is there any way of putting this on a parameter?

Also, it would be nice to be able to put some items (apart from latest news) in the centre column. Perhaps this could solve the calendar width issue if it was put in the centre?

BTW great hack - will definitly be using when we upgrade to VB3 (am running on a test site at present).

For those of you who get the ACP login when viewing vBindex there was a small bug that caused incorrect text be to shown for the edit to vbiconfig.php, make sure the path there doesn't have admin or admincp or whatever your admin folder is at the end.

Image paths, for a standard vB style would be http://www.mydomain.com/forums/images/button (where button is the type of image directory) assuming your forum is at http://www.mydomain.com/forums if you didn't do this via the installer, you'll need to goto the style manager and change them all.

peterska2, if you can't post on your forums then its a problem with vB and this isn't the correct thread for it :)

What if someone wants to install for the first time and not upgrade. There are not any instructions and the vbiconfig.php files references an install script.

NTLDR
06 Jan 2004, 19:32
All the install/upgrade instructions are within the installer, ie, they upload the files start the installer as instructed in the first post of this thread and then the first step tells them exactly howto edit vbiconfig.php (and which templates need editing). This file only needs to be edited for vBindex to work and not the installer.

The problem only started after I installed this hack. Therefore, IMO, it is related to this.

Also wouldn't it be better and less confusing to upload the upgrade/install files to the install directory instead of mucking up the admin directory?

Okay just went through your installation and all I got was a bunch of errors and it kept saying borked.... And this is considered the best portal front-end for vBulletin? Would hate to try anything else if the best one doesn't even work.

06 Jan 2004, 20:23
You probably have an out dated zip Wayne. I've just check the latest attachment and eventcache.php is definatly there and the text file has been updated to include the XML files. I know the documentation needs some work and I do plan to do it once vB3 and vBindex 3 become final and I know I'm not going to be changing it every few days.

I'll take on board your suggestion of using the install directory, it would be more sensible thinking about it. Thanks for the feedback :)

Admin Control Panel -> Style Manager -> All Options (for each different style) -> Image Paths


I may be being completely useless here, but the header image path is

images/misc/vbulletin3_logo_white.gif

I have replaced this image with the one I want to show (the one on the main forum), using the same file name. The main forum picks up this image with no problems. However, it will not show it on the vbindex.php. The main forum also has the missing cascade images, which will not show on the vbindex.php.

the shady style has a heading image called hereyah_logo_clear.gif. I have replaced this with the image I want to show, and before I install vbindex this was the file shown. Do you think this could be the cause?

sorry for being a muppet, please be patient with me:)

Nmidia, in your case you should prefix (put at the front of each of the different image paths) all images paths with /Forum/ as well as the header image (also on the options page) and the background image URL in the background property of the Table Header and Table Catagory CSS sections.

This is really a great hack, but I got just one problem.

On the navigation bar on the top of the page, I miss a link to the actual forums.
Is it possible to make the name to the right of the folder icon ("Debate forums" in this case) a hyperlink to the forums?

And how do I add a button on the bar below?

NTLDR
06 Jan 2004, 20:50
You'll need to edit your navbar template, you'll see a set of <td>'s which contain all the links, register, user cp etc, copy one of those and edit the URL and name for a link to the forums.

Also note that the folder icons are special links to 'go back' and reload the current page. You can however change the link and text in the navbar template too.

Do you know what mate? - You've only gone and fixed it:) The forum looks great now:)

The only other things I'm having issues with are getting the forum to display news - a quick walk through on this would be great.

I also want to have a custom box on the side with links in it. Is there any code for this anywhere?

finally, when a private message warning pops up, it doens't link to the correct address - I have changed all of the addresses in the nav bit. Is there something else I need to change?


I really am sorry to be such a pain:)

You should have edited the headinclude and pm_popup_script templates, see back a few pages for more detailed instructions on how.

Make sure you have enabled news on the vBindex Options page and have entered the forumid of your news forum (it looks like 63 from looking at your site).

Adding custom blocks is easy, enter the number 1 in the field in the options page, submit it and then once the page has reloaded you'll then be able to assign it to one of the side blocks which it seems you have already done. Just edit the vbindex_customblock_1 template and add the HTML for your links :)

No errors this way though you should check to see if the file extension is already defined so it doesn't flash warnings.

Just a couple of quick questions I couldn't find in a search.

1 - Will this portal display "today's events" at the bottom of the mini-calendar?

2 - Will the news automatically be updated once a new news post is added? I had a previous portal that required I run a php file to update the news display on the index.php page.

It doesn't display them in a sperate block, each day in the calendar that has event(s) is hyperlinked and has a tooltip with the event(s) title(s).

2 - Will the news automatically be updated once a new news post is added? I had a previous portal that required I run a php file to update the news display on the index.php page.

As soon as you post in your specified newsforum the news appears on the front page. No file edits, no PHP files to run :)

This is something I was wondering as well, in your first post your instructions state "Upload all files where upload.txt tells you and then go to the upgrade scripts." When I posted I had an error you told me to change stuff in vbconfig.php like the instructions say. I don't quite understand this all but I think there is something amis.

OK, I think I figured out my problem, the upgrade process never told me what to enter as the path in my vbiconfig.php and that was the same step that had me stumped in the original version. How do you find out what your path is, I have tried a variety of things and none of them seem to work.

A crime that an awesome portal such as this is so friggin easy to install.

Download the RC3 files on the first post and continue from whatever step you have got to so far.

RC3 Details

The first post now contains the vBindex RC3 zip file, this should correct all the errors and problems found in RC2 and contains more detailed install information and the HTML for the template edits for those of you unsure on howto do them.

I'm considering this a testing realease for a few days, so RC2 is still avalible for download. RC3 has been tried and worked fine for me on a fresh install of vB3 RC2 and I've upgraded a Pre-RC2 install running on vB3 Gamma with no problems.

I got as far as getting this error, or in other words clicking the button on the vbiupgrade.php page.

Database error in vBulletin 3.0.0 Release Candidate 2:
Invalid SQL:
CREATE TABLE vbindex_shoutbox (
shoutid int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
userid int(11) NOT NULL default '0',
shout text NOT NULL,
dateline int(11) NOT NULL default '0',
PRIMARY KEY (shoutid)
) TYPE=MyISAM

mysql error: Table 'vbindex_shoutbox' already exists

Script: http://www.rapcheck.com/b/install/vbiupgrade1.php?step=2
Referer: http://www.rapcheck.com/b/install/vbiupgrade.php

Then you told me to skip that step after I posted about it, so I changed the step number in the url (http://www.rapcheck.com/b/install/vbiupgrade1.php?step=2) I went up to 10, each time only sending me to a page with a button that says Convert/Install shoutbox. So I kept messing with the url, went through vbiupgrade2 and 3 and step numbers to 10. The only steps that did anything where http://www.rapcheck.com/b/install/vbiupgrade1.php?step=3
Database error in vBulletin 3.0.0 Release Candidate 2:

Everything else sends me back to the shoutbox install/convert.

There is no reason I can see why it should keep sending you back to that step. All I can suggest is to run through each step manually:

Steps 1, 2 and 3 are in vbiupgrade1.php, 4 is in vbiupgrade2.php 5 and 6 are in vbiupgrade3.php and 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 are in vbiupgraded.php, if you get errors its more than likly the step has already been run.

alright, I got it now. Thanks a bunch.

Note though, each page when I manually did the steps the button was the shoutbox step and on vbiupgraded.php?step=8 the info I put into the boxes wouldnt save and brought me back to step 8 when pressing save. Dont know whats up with that.

EDIT, apparently the info did save but I was brought back to the undedited text boxes when pressing save.

Looks like everythings working fine now. *Clicks Install*

Hi,

installed fine, no problems at all however when i tried to do the vBindex Options Link in the ACP i had a slight problem.

I have added the code as it says to however the menu does not show the new item. Its there but the drop down bit is not as low as it needs to be and so i can just see the top of the link.

hope you understand what i mean.

^ Have that problem as well.


Anyways, I have vbindex up and running perfect (as far as I know) EXCEPT I can't login from the nav bar login form. It simply takes me to the forum index page. The template has been changed to what was supplied in the zip. Have to login from a no permission or admin page.

NTLDR,

Are you using false advertisement? I goto your site at CoreForums.com and click on the XHTML logo at the bottom to check if it is compliant and this is what I get "This page is not Valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional!" There's a total of 26 errors, why tell someone something that it isn't?

I just finished installing your RC3 version with a fresh install of Vbulletin 3-RC2 and all has gone well so far. I just need to do the edit that adds the link to the control panel to the admincp. Including the edited templates was a great help. Thanks for a great hack.

Chas.

Btw, what do you mean in the first post here when you say "If you liked this hack, click the 'install' button...." ??

it's getting better and better - could you add the latest posts box as a scrolling JavaScript inside and <iframe> ?

Every single one of those errors is related to one of the news posts, something which I can't control, all the HTML generated in that post is done with vB's BB Code Parser, if I removed that post you should find it is Valid XHTML.
