View Full Version : XML Generation
August 30th, 2012, 07:20 PM
I seem to be having a problem generating the XML file needed to get the navigation working in vB 4.2
Maybe I am overlooking something, but I'm not sure if it is just as bad installation or some other mod that I have installed. Has this type of problem existed before? Generating my file yields a blank XML.
I'm ready to be made a fool of, I know it has to be something simple.

Per the instructions in the documentation have you set the 3 xml files in the install directory to 777 permission?
Without more info I would suspect this is your issue.

Of course not... I've obviously missed that step repeatedly... which instructions am I supposed to be using? I use the link in the member's area.
I'm not seeing what you are referencing, but I'm probably overlooking it.

There are install and upgrade instructions in the documentation folder of the downloaded code.
This is the part from the documentation I think you want to read.
IMPORTANT - FOR VBULLETIN 4 ONLY. New plugins included in download.
In the install directory set permissions on the file product_class.xml, source-vb4.xml and source-vb42.xml files to 777
2. Go to your classifieds admin panel ( http://www.yoursite.com/classifieds/adm-index.php ) and hit the option to generate vbulletin plugin xml. That file will download to your computer.
3. Go into your vbulletin admin panel and under plugins & products select the option to manage products. You can then use the add/import product option
and upload the xml file you downloaded to your computer called product_class.xml file. Once that is done your forum will show gallery content.
4. Thats it your done!!

OK, well thank you Chuck, I wasn't using those instructions. I'll be sure to use them instead from now on.
I knew it was something simple.
