Just thought I would post to say thanks for all the good work Brian, and to confirm this working with 3.05. :)

UnknownServices 10 Jan 2005 02:37

This is an awsome script. GJ btw.

I tried using the same stats you have on the portal on a sidebar that shows everywhere on the board excpet the portal. I found out that I had to include
functions.php and stats.php in the global.php file and it worked fine, but when I do that, the stats block on the portal dosen't show, anyone know why/

Did a quick search, in all threads. Are there addons available for other modules such as image gallery and such along those lines?

Tigga 10 Jan 2005 04:41

Now that we have our own forum for the CMPS, please keep all support related posts there.


Aaron - Which image gallery?

I was using vbadvanced along with vb 3.0.0. I have now upgraded to 3.0.5. I installed vbadvanced CMPS and chose to import my old settings. It seems to be slightly messed up however. The pull down menus don't work and there may be an image problem. Can you take a look at my site and see what I may have done wrong? Thanks

I did as the instructions told me and getting the following error.

Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING in /home/pakdef/public_html/forum/includes/functions.php on line 1916

Thats the same error I had when editing the file in Dreamweaver.

Re-edit it using a text editor (Notepad, Wordpad) or something like Editplus, using your original (unmodified) copy.

Reload it to the server.

That'll fix it, I'll wager.
