Hi Sadain
have you checked out my forum (link in signature) top right button Music
this mod lets your members upload music, Rate, and comment on songs, you can also have catagies. installing this type of mod is not for the faint hearted. if you real what to install this post back and i will give you all the help need. this mod is well worth the hard work. and will be a bonus to your forum. and when you've mastered that you could install the photo album.

Did your skin come with "sub-forums" as a pre-installed feature, or would you see this as a mod worth imposing onto an already installed Forum?

(I can REALLY use sub-forums, and for the life of me cannot figure out which mod is the right one to download - over 20!!!)

I have a test subject:

do I need to manually create a mod folder in public_Html/phpex/admin or do I just unzip the easymod zip file?

Sadain

Manual make a folder in admin called mods. open the folder on the right then on the left side of screen find the easymod folder click it to high light it then click copyto top of tool bar. when finished check that all folders and all files have been copied over. once this is done close ftp manager and open IE or what ever and follow the instruction that you got with eastmod.

how about we skip easymod and go right to installing the music mod...

would that maybe work because I dont know where to go from here...

I am very skilled in computers windows, and the sever is linux this is where
I become a little off key...

What do you mean by sub forum do mean going to a forum within your forum.Yes...like you see here:

Web Hosting Pre-Sales (http://www.vodahost.com/vodatalk/web-hosting-pre-sales.html) (13 Viewing)
Do you have a question or two you would like to ask us before you join VodaHost? (Includes - Service, Policy, Features, Network, Support, etc...)
Sub-Forums: http://www.vodahost.com/vodatalk/images/statusicon/subforum_link.gif VodaHost Knowledge Base (http://www.support.vodahost.com/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=view), http://www.vodahost.com/vodatalk/images/statusicon/subforum_link.gif Complete List of Features (http://www.vodahost.com/features.htm)


Reason being, I would have to list each individual Item as a post within a thread, for example, rather than have say, all my downloadable Sales Forms set up as specific to each separate company:
(Category) OPERATIONS & ADMINISTRATION
(Forum) Master Forms & Templates
(Sub-Forum) Choice Jeweler ; each post within this "Company" thread a different Sales Form....(no, not "Forum"...Sales FORM)
(Sub-Forum) The Blingster ; each post within this "Company" thread a different Form....
etc.
(Forum) Sales Reporting & Tracking
(Sub-Forum) Choice Jeweler ; I'd embed the CRM module for that unit
(Sub-Forum) The Blingster ; etc. for the different companies....
etc. etc.

If I can't add sub-Forums, I will have simply WAY too many in each category (and way more categories) just to cover the items to "list"....

AND this is the mod I found (http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=265040&highlight=adding+creating+createing+subforums+daj+ glass), but am totally terrified to install (for whatever reason).there are SO MANY!

if you can manual edit scripts and have a good code editer then ok.

I dont, I guess I'll continue this and start over with the easy mod...

I hate to keep you up all night, so maybe I'll check back with you later...

I'm going to start fresh and see what happens and go through the instructions very closley like I said earlier thank you for your time

if you can think of anything I'm doing wrong then please feel free to mention

Thank You

umm i will have to think about that will get back to you my friend. but as it's 3.15am i have to get some sleep.

Saddin try deleting the easymod then reinstalling and try again. i will catch up with you tomorrow.

saddin try uninstlling easymod, download a new zip easymod and try again beleave my this mod is quite hard to install manual. if you can get easymod up this music mod will take 15 min instead of two or three hours. make sure you download the zip file.

nitey-nite, Alien....

GOOD MORNING, Alien!

See here: http://ptifo.clanmckeen.com/download.php
Which is the version to download for the phpBB we get via VH Fantastico? The "vanilla" or the 'older' version, despite having a template found already?
Tis a bit confusing.....following this page, I went on ahead and downloaded the "calender/scheduler" also listed in the download packs, but have not installed it...still zipped to my C drive...
You have my email, so whenever you can give me some good advice, I'll follow-up promptly..

THANKS.

you dont use mods for sub forums
you can go to admin panel then to Forum Admin then click on management and create forums there...
as create catagory the create forums in the catagory...Having shown the examples above, are you sure about this?
(I know how to administrate my board, but) There is a big difference between Category, Forum (under that category) thread/topic (within that Forum), post (within a topic), and having a sub-forum (choices under a Forum proper) to which multiple threads can be created under that heirarchy....

ALIEN/OTHERS -
Based on the examples and links I've posted, I again would appreciate your comments.....

Oh, no. I miss took the question. I missunderstood.

and, I was just trying to be helpful with the knowledge I have... I didnt even know one could put a forum within a forum or post... it was very enlightening to see that unfold

sorry

Vasili
07-25-2006, 05:36 AM
No prob! Got a hold of Race, and he also suggests I go the EasyMod way first...and I might have to do some tweaking when it sets up (50-50 chance of self installing 100%)......I' should copy part of the email so you can all see it....

""
I would like to have a Sub-Forum for each Company to list their own materials, like in this example:

(Category) OPERATIONS & ADMINISTRATION
...(Forum) MasterForms & Templates
........(Sub-Forum) Choice Jeweler ; each post within this "Company" thread a different Sales Form....(Invoice, Follow-Up, etc.)
...........(Thread/Topic) Sales Forms (and posts can be individual forms to download)
...........(Thread/Topic) General Forms (with posts being individual forms like Fax, Letterhead, etc.)
........(Sub-Forum) The Blingster ; each post within this "Company" thread a different Form.... (Web Order Form, Submit to Supervisor, etc.)
...........(Thread/Topic) Sales Forms (and posts can be individual forms to download)
...........(Thread/Topic) General Forms (with posts being individual forms like Fax, Letterhead, etc.)
...(Forum) Sales Reporting & Tracking
........(Sub-Forum) Choice Jeweler ; I'd embed the CRM module for that unit
...........(Thread/Topic) Sales Tally Forms
........(Sub-Forum) The Blingster ; etc. for the different companies.... etc. etc.


I have found a mod I think should work, found here: http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=265040&highlight=adding+creating+createing+subforums+daj+ glass (http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=265040&highlight=adding+creating+createing+subforums+daj+ glass)

It seems to show the fact I am using the DAJ Glass template….and prodding through the “Packs” I already downloaded a Calendar & Scheduler file, just because it sounded interesting….(still zipped to my C drive..)

I am hesitant, not knowing if this is going to simply download, FTP it up, or how to install without screwing it up….and so it won’t mess up my whole board set up…

and General Race's Reply:

This one is a challenge to install, I've been there. Since your board is still "vanilla" (not many if any MODS), you should find and install easymod first. It will handle the bulk of the installation for you - all you'll have to do is upload the files to their proper directories and make the necessary edits on the theme (although easymod may be able to do this as well - 50/50 shot there). ""


SO......looks like I'm going to "brave it" and give it a shot.....AFTER priniting out all the stuff I loaded my forum with and made another copy of the Sub-Directory folder it is in...

Sadain
07-25-2006, 08:15 AM
Yeah that subforum would be cool.
especially for a large user base


My easymod isnt so easy either... I keep getting an error message, maybe i need to set configeration to defualt or something... i wish i knew... then I'd be a novice and be able to answer questions too

Make sure you're following this path when installing:



Installing EasyMOD

Download the archive of the latest EasyMOD.
Extract it into the admin/ directory of your phpBB2 installation. The proper directory hierarchy should be your_forum_folder/admin/mods/easymod/.For more: http://easymod.sourceforge.net/readme/#installing_EM

Sadain
07-25-2006, 09:27 AM
I have done everything you've siad to a T,

then I go to my forum log in then log in to admistration panel i have the config set to subsliver... then I open a new browser window or a tab paste in the url. Then I get this message in the browser:

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@exstazjianjsadian.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

Thanx Racefan for all your help,
My patrons on my board are looking forward to this mod, so
I cant back out...lol

If you are using FTP access, make sure you, as the owner, have write permission on ALL your phpBB files


Could the above be the problem and how would I know if i had permission?


thanx

Vasili
07-25-2006, 07:48 PM
You are freaking me out! I don't know whether to laugh or crawl into a corner!

I feel I must definitely wait for a personal "walk-thru" now, as my Forum has already been tweaked to act as a "Resource Center" with operations for my businesses on it, and I cannot suffer any downtime whatsoever...

Might be because of the other music mod you put on , the testforum best thing to do is uninstall the testforum and start agian. if you have just got subSilver and that skin you've got the mod i give you should install no problem. i installed on one of me testforums last night no problem. http://www.aliensanonymous.org/testforum2

this is the file its asking for overall_header.tpl if we load that file it may save us some time, and end atleast one error


and,


do you know the permission numbers for the files that are to be installed because that may be an issue as well

don't worry about that for now that is a file which is already in the skins it need changing so that the link to the music online appears i will do that later its only for the skin you loaded.
i have found the problem my foult go to your ftp manager on the right side go to the admin/mods/music open and find the language folder you will see i spelt it wrong delete it make a new one named language then up load the files that should be in there.
then try agian
when you click you will get a page saying
SQL PROCESSING ERROR:
No SQL alterations will be performed. However, you may skip SQL processing, continue installing the MOD, and deal with the SQL manually

The following error occured:

Error:
Unknown SQL command ";", statement: 1

SQL:
click proseed untill finished.

have you uploaded the music_box into the forum directory same place as the templates and language.
you now need to do the date base or you will get a debub message.

Hi is the old music mod still on that forum as the music.php is messed up. have installed database .
first try going to admin install mods. if the musicmod is still showing try again. if not open your ftp manager find the music.php on the left and also on the right then copy left to right.
if this dosn't work i suggest deleting forum and starting again.
did you upload the music_box before installing or after ?

Sadain
07-26-2006, 06:56 PM

what do you want to do.
something is wrong with the way the Installation took place
so the music mod is not installed on your main forum if so PLEASE WAIT UNTILL WE HAVE SORTED THE OUT.

best bet is to uninstall the testforum then reinstall and we will start from scratch if you want. it's up to you

hint this is why you should always get it working on the testforum first before you install on to your main forum.

Sadain
07-26-2006, 07:33 PM
I'll try to do it all over agian....


But, not today, I'm dog tired I'll probably restore the main forum today, then I'm going to eat diner and nap...




VodaHost said my permissions were messed up and they just reset them last nigh so maybe my php folders werent effected by the change over due to its not part of the mian server, so, I'll try again...


Man, I bet its something simple... but, thanx for spending so much time on me...


Thank You
