Thanks for the info, I just moved the </a> to the end of the line where it shows the folder icon and board name and that did it for me.

I've just re-downloaded and these instructions are not in the current zip.
All the instructions are in the first post of this thread Any additional stuff, like editing templates etc is now contained within the install process.

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.

This should be a crime.

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

Theres gotta be some law about that, if not, give GWB enough time to find it.

The actual portal install took bout 5 minutes, figuring out the nav bar trick took bout 10 minutes. Customizing the boxes will take a week

Right on guys. I'm sorry I didnt know you had previous releases before rc

Your server path?

It will report that on that page, if not, what ftp proggie do you use? many of them will give you the exact path up at the top.

OK, I have got it working to an extent. A problem I am having is that my forums are at http://forums.method-call.com but whenever I try to log in from the portal page it tries to access http://www.method-call.com/login.php. How do I prevent this?

OK, it also seems that to get images to appear on the portal page I had to change the image path setting to forums/images/etc and now on the forum page all the images are set to http://forums.method-call.com/forums/whatever.

How don't they work correctly? Its posible the installer messed them up, but I've not exeprienced any problems with it. Any details you can give would be great.

You need to edit the form in the navbar template so login.php points to the correct place. Your image paths should be like this: http://forums.method-call.com/images/etc

cant seem to get past step 1... here is the error. Ive gone over everything a few times now, everything is how its supposed to be as far as I can see.

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

mysql error number: 1050

You must have already run that step, move onto vbiupgrade1.php?step=3

I did that, step 3 went through, and then goes to step 4 which says next step (convert/install shoutbox) which takes me back to step 2 for some reason and back to the error above.

You'll need to reverse all the queries found in the install files.
