View Full Version : Almost installed until the 'forum' question
July 20th, 2011, 04:11 PM
I am installing Photopost with Wordpress and the last part was integrating with a forum (which I am not using). There is a /forum folder inside the /gallery (which is the name of the directory the photopost is in) so I pointed it there. I had no choice because I couldn't go by without NOT putting in a forum path.
What do you recommend?

You do not fill out or turn on any vb things as thats the last step of an install but on the step 4 is the forum settings that is where you correctly enter your wordpress info like table prefix and worsdpress url. for all purposes wordpress is a forum on install

It is asking for the URL to the forum directory and I am doing the URL to the installation (without the wp-admin or whatever, just the actual URL).
I am getting also an error that a table already exists (likely because I have been doing this over and over. This is the only area I am getting stuck on.
This is the error I am getting :
Warning: include(/wp-config.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/amanda/public_html/university/photopost/forums/wp.php on line 18
Warning: include() [function.include]: Failed opening '/wp-config.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/amanda/public_html/university/photopost/forums/wp.php on line 18
Error: Table 'ppost_usergroups' already exists

Okay strange, I went on to Step 5 and it appears to be installed but I can't login now to admin. I don't recall setting an admin username and password and it doesn't take the Wordpress admin login.
Stick with me here... you are almost rid of me, LOL! How do I login as an admin?
July 20th, 2011, 06:58 PM
Yeah, I guess I set it up wrong, it doesn't recognize my username and password for Wordpress.
I guess I can pay you to install? It is a shame I am so close, but I am filling out something wrong.

In config-int.php the $vbpath line must be the full server path to wordpress
July 20th, 2011, 08:33 PM
And what is the 'full server path'? mydomain dotcom ?
July 20th, 2011, 08:48 PM
also, it looks like my config-int.php ends with .NEW, should I remove the .NEW?
July 20th, 2011, 09:09 PM
server path is like this
Of course you would need to know where wordpress is located
You would remove the new of both your config files.
July 20th, 2011, 09:12 PM
Okay, will do (keep your fingers crossed!)
July 20th, 2011, 09:14 PM
yeah I cant tell you your exact paths as I know nothing about your setup and site.
July 20th, 2011, 09:19 PM
Darn, it was correct in config.int.php and not working. It doesn't recognize that I am logged in to Wordpress and doesn't recognize my login when I try.
How much for you to finish the install? I need to get this up and running already. I also love the sample you showed where the header and footer were wrapped around the gallery. Give me a quote and I'm happy to pay.

You must not be entering correct information.
The install service is $59.00

I know, I'm sure I'm not, but I am late on this. I am not Amanda, I am her web designer and not a good programmer, LOL! You can contact me at email@example.com. I do a lot of Wordpress sites for crafters and was hoping to learn to integrate with Wordpress myself as I see a huge potential.
I need more clear instructions specifically for Step 5 with Wordpress. In a perfect world, I'd have that, but $59 at this point will save me time (which for me is $$$). Look forward to hearing from you and I appreciate your speedy replies!

There is no information about wordpress on step 5. step 4 asks all the forum/wordpress info which needs to be answered correctly.
There is no need for me to email me. If your purchasing an install service customer service will process your order and send an insaller the info you send them to get the service complete.

Awesome job on the integration... I would have liked to know how to do it myself, but you did a fabulous job. Thanks!
July 22nd, 2011, 03:47 PM
Your welcome glad to help. Yeah I usually try and put a little extra finishing touches when I do customers installs help match site layout etc.
August 1st, 2011, 01:10 PM
What info would I put if the WP is on the root and not in a directory?
August 1st, 2011, 01:27 PM
All sorted...thanks anyway...for being here.
August 1st, 2011, 02:24 PM
Okay no problem. I assume you meant wordpress as I would not know what else wp would stand for. wp like any forum or integration you would put the correct urls and server paths to that install for anyone else who views this thread.
August 1st, 2011, 03:31 PM
Yeah, sorry, meant Wordpress
I'm now having a problem with setting an index thumbnail...every time I set it, it remains the same picture, no matter how many different ones I try.
August 1st, 2011, 03:32 PM
Also, I contacted support for instructions on how to remove the branding (lost original email) but they have not replied. :(
No biggie mind.
August 1st, 2011, 05:22 PM
when setting an image thumbnail make sure your actually tagging a picture that is in the cat your trying. example if your in the members gallery and tag a photo you need to tag a photo that exists in cat 500
You can send any emails through our contact us link in our header. I am not seeing any copyright emails in our helpdesk as of yet.
August 1st, 2011, 05:47 PM
I'm going into my category (501) and then clicking the pic I want and then choosing to make it the index thumb for that category but its not working
Sent an email via the contact form re the brand removal
August 1st, 2011, 06:26 PM
If an image your viewing is in the actual category it should work. You can place a url here to your example
August 1st, 2011, 06:39 PM
It tells me I've tagged the image but it doesn't show on the Home page
I tried to post a url but it says I don't have enough posts yet
August 1st, 2011, 06:40 PM
Just click on my site and then gallery and click on Movie Posters and then the Watchmen pic
August 1st, 2011, 07:31 PM
You need to be using the forumstyle view in index options to have category avatars. Your using an old style gallery view which should show if I am right the last uploaded picture.

Not a problem yeah that old alternate view you where using is going the way of the dodo in version 8
