View Full Version : I Need Guidance .. VB 3.8 Integration
May 7th, 2011, 11:20 PM
Ok, I am not looking for someone to write me code or anything, just kind of give me an idea of where to start. I will explain what I am looking to try to do.
- Have the classifieds page act as just another page in my content management system so the switch over is seamless, people do not know they are on another system.
- Have the user logged in information carry over to the classifieds, they already share the same database, but when they go to the classifieds right now it doesn't recognize that they are already logged in.
I can provide an example of a site doing this already in a PM (permission don't allow me to post a link in threads yet).
That is basically exactly what I am looking to do, but I want to tailor it with my own ideas. I just need a good mentor for this.

PhotoPost Product FAQs - PhotoPost Community (http://www.photopost.com/forum/photopost-product-faqs/)
You can read about cookies to have the logins synced as that would be your issue I assume
As far as having your classifieds page load somewhere its not like your cms is not going to happen. Like your forum which is loaded in say your forums subdirectory your classifieds would load in your classifieds directory. vbulletin integration means we load the vb header footer style and the user login is integrated so there is the same look and feel.
You can visit our own gallery here to see how our products are designed to look when integrated with vb and if there is a support question or something you need assistance with we can help but we can not assist with code modification.

I don't actually want it to display in my CMPS, but my page uses two different headers. There is a header for the forums and a header for every other page. They are similar but different, the forums are not fixed width, everything else is. I want my PPC to look like the fixed width one and not the forums one. I want the fixed width one which is not what you would get by simply including the header code.

Actually scratch that, that's pretty simple, just turn the forum header code into the custom one and the other pages header code as what is stored in the template. Duh. Don't know why I didn't get that before.

Yeah our site would load your forum header which is the product we integrate with. Therefore whatever your forum header is that is what we load. To do anything different you would have to alter code.

This is what I get when I turn on VB3 integration:
Warning: chdir() [function.chdir]: No such file or directory (errno 2) in /home/content/21/7755621/html/classifieds/header-inc.php on line 57
Warning: require_once(/home/content/21/7755621/html/classifieds/includes/init.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/21/7755621/html/global.php on line 20

That should assist you number 2 should explain your issue in depth.

No, it was something radically different. However after much head smashing into the wall and cursing I did figure it out.
In fact, I got so much of it figured out that I only have one last question before I can have this running 100% like I want to. On some forums that I am on for adding pictures to the advertisement, there is a button to press for Add Pictures or Add Attachments, which opens up the upload control panel in a separate pop-up window rather than as one of the table options on the create an advertising page.
I assume that is a hack, but don't know where to find it.

I do not know how it would be different. That error absolutely states our program can not find your forum files therefore your path has to be wrong. You can tell me what you found out i would be curious knowing your solution.
As far as your questions I can not say because your probally not talking about our application. Our application works as you see. Your always going to go to our upload page not some popup window.

My error was a unique situation, as I installed my forums to the root directory and not a forums directory and the error was in how I tailored a custom header that was looking for a file in the classifieds directory when it was loaded onto the classifieds page.
The other question, I know for a fact that they are using PhotoPost Classifieds. I will take some screenshots and PM them to you if you would like.

so essentially a mod was looking for a file and you where using relative paths not full server paths got it. Same error just a different cause.
I can not speak on something if they modified things. Like I said our app displays as seen but you can post links.

I figured out how they did it, basically they took the newthread.php file of the vBulletin software and altered it to run scripts for PhotoPost classifieds, the functionality for picture uploads is by using a modified version of newattachment.php from vBulletin.

Yep neither of those files are ours. ;)
May 14th, 2011, 09:19 PM
Yep, I posted a paid request or a work together request to get it done in the time frame I needed. I just don't have enough time to learn PHP that in-depth and get it going on the site in 15 days or so.
May 15th, 2011, 09:24 AM
Yep thats why there are mods. ;)
If you know the site that has the mod the best thing to do is contact that site and get the contact info or mod from that site.
