help with vbulletin implementation
Well I find most users get so accustomed to hitting "new posts" when browing the site that they tend to forget about other areas of a website. I used to have a forum setup for selling classifieds and if someone posted something, users would see it instantly. I find now since moving to photopost classifieds that the classifieds area has died off.....I know this is a long shot, but is there any way that if someone posts something in the classifieds it somehow can show up under "new posts" listings? or some other way to notify people of a new listing? Anyone else out there using VB and know what I mean?
Why not do the classifieds photos block on your forumhome?
got a link? might work......just these damn users only hit 1 button....new posts. haha. But might be ok if its on the forum home.
nevermind I found it...will let you know.
Chuck using a quote from one of your posts
my problem is I am getting this error:
Warning: mysql_fetch_row(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /home2/edmonton/public_html/classifieds/inc_ads.php on line 56
Warning: mysql_fetch_row(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in /home2/edmonton/public_html/classifieds/inc_ads.php on line 108
They use different databases. Line 26 of inc_ads.php points to the classifieds databse and line 192 points to the vb database.
Make sure the $link statement is filled out and in edit integration you have the correct table prefix of classifieds.
I even made the change like you mentioned here.
btw I am using v 2.5
ahh ok sql errors are now gone...must of been cause my table prefixes were blank under edit integration
no matter where I put $classifiedsfeature nothing shows up. Are you suppose to edit these lines in inc_ads.php?
You put the include in the plugin for forumhome and $classifiedsfeature goes in the forumhome templates thats it
No there is nothing to edit just make sure if your using classifieds 2.5 you not using the hack but the one included in the distro.
I got the $classifiedsfeature in the forumhome template part
Have you included the inc_ads.php?
ahh sorry didn't see that post. So now I haved removed the includes line from my index.php and just simply uploaded the plugin with the correct path I believe. Here is my setup.
both use their own DB....
-I have made the necessary changes to the inc_ads.php file
-I have uploaded the plugin you posted instead of editing the index.php file
-I have edited the forumhome template to include $classifiedsfeature
Still no images or block or nothing. I am wondering something though, for some reason photopost classifieds doesn't seem to work with imagemagick and I am still waiting on my damn host to recompile php after he installed GD finally. Could that be the issue? because as it stands there are no images in my classifieds area, just text untl I get this thumbnail issue resolved. However I would still expect there to be a block on forumhome, whether or not thumbnails are present, there should still be something no?
Well its not going to appear for unregistered users I can tell you that. You do not allow unregistered users to see anything on classifieds so viewing your page I can say that for sure.
right, but I as admin cannot see anything either and I am only testing it on a style to which no users can see anyways. Once I get it right I'll move it to the other styles.
Check template edit. Check the plugin path to the file and make sure its right.
chuck.....well I finally got php recompiled so that I can use GD2 for my images. I think once I get the images on the ads things will change...however 1 small problem.
I can upload gif's and png's no problem, but if I try to upload a jpg I get the following error
Unable to read the format of file: blabl/bla.jpg
I've search all over looking for the answer, but so far no luck. Again this is only with JPG's and nothing else. I checked config to make sure jpg are allowed....I also made sure there was a trailing slash on the end of the datat directory path...I checked permissions and made sure data and child directories were 777. Any other ideas?
Okay well now you answered why nothing shows ;)
The block only shows ads with images
As far as GD make sure GD was compiled with jpg support.
crap I just saw that......my stupid host (friend of mine)....gonna have to kick him in the ass.
