Thanks for checking, Chuck. I went back through the 32 page thread you have linked above and I'm still missing what ever it is I was missing before. I have the $photopostfeature line in my FORUMHOME template under the <body>, $header and $navbar lines. And futher down under the <!--main--> line I put in the <br/>$photopostcats<br/> line as show by the instructions. I've uploaded the plug in include('../gallery/inc_features.php'); with /gallery and all of the photopost files in it, within my VB
forum directory. I get nothing with ../ and if I just go ./ I get the error I noted above: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)
From what I've read, I think I should be using the one dot and not the two but I get the error with one and nothing with two. I'm obviously missing something. I would even be happy to just get the black dots so many others seem to have gotten right at first, but I can't even get those.
I haven't been able to run down the socket error either, and I feel that is trying to tell me something. I didn't see anyone else on here that reported that error either, but it is probably a path or permission problem somewhere.
I tried putting the pull path in the plug in for the location of the inc_features file, but that didn't help either. I'll go back through the 32 page thread and the sublinks that are listed in the thread and see if I can find what I left out. If you have any other ideas, I'm all ears.
