upgrading to vb 3.5.2
the upgrade went successful but now my featured photos area is gone. i have added the two lines to index.php and i edited the FORUMHOME template with the $photopostfeature command.
anyone know how to get my featured photos back in version 3.5.2?
That would be how. I did post this for people not wanting to edit the index file you can install a plugin.
Save this code here as an xml file and edit to the correct server path to your inc_fearture.php file and instal the plugin in vbadmin plugin manager
follow up question
thanks, that worked.
To use the plugin do I need to remove the code from the index file before installing the plugin. :)
it just worked with those lines in it.
yes iloco you would remove the hard coded edit as you dont want to declare it twice
Thanks Chuck for reply. If I understand correctly with plugin I will not have to edit those hard coded lines again when need to upgrade. :)
I have uploaded the xml file and at the top of my forum home page I get a message " Could not select photopost database"
Don't know what I have done wrong. Any ideas.
Here is what is in my plugin window where you can edit the code.
well its server path not url on the example you posted
next according to the docs on this hack you would need to uncomment the $link and mysql_select_db things and fill in the proper info if the photopost and forum are in separate databases ;)
Well you are correct Chuck about seperate data bases. I wish I knew how to combine them into one.
Will not bother you anymore and go back to the way I hade it hard coded.
I am not sure where to uncomment the $link and mysql_select_db.
Thanks for answerig and explaining the problem. :)
Thanks Chuck for the link. I had gotten where to uncommnet all figured out but still getting errors so I got to do some playing to get this to work as a plugin.
Will do it one day when all by myself. :)
I have upgraded from vb 3.0 to 3.5.2. My photopost and classifieds are no longer working. My reviewpost appears to be at first glance.
I am looking at this plug in fix. When I go to "Plugin System", "Add New Plugin", I have a series of options.
I placed it in "ajax_start", I don't know what that is yet:(...
I named it Photopost,
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<plugin active="1" product="vbulletin">
<title>Photopost Feature Block</title>
-----for the php code.
It isn't working yet, I am still looking for the problem. I am wondering if this would be a good time to just upgrade Photopost, or if I really should get it running first?
Only the latest versions of our products are vb 3.5 compatible
If your not using at least Photopost 5.2, Reviewpost 3.1 and Classifieds 2.42 then they are not compatible with vb 3.5
I have not noticed specific upgrading instuctions. Should I simply follow the install instructions, over writing all files? Perhaps the upgrading option is givin once I connect to the web installation script?
There is in the docs folder of the download upgrade docs
basically you overwrite everything except config files and run any upgrade.php you need to select the ones from your current version on up
OK, I have pressed the upgrade button! I believe I was running 4.86, and the highest upgrade listed was 4.82. I pressed it anyway (famous last actions!).
It looks not bad, but I do have an error:
We're sorry, but the system experienced an unrecoverable error. Please try again later.
Query: SELECT id,ugnoupload,ugnoanno,ugnoview,ugnopost,ugnovote,password,watermark,cattype,ismember,catname,parent,children,thumbs,canzip,moderators,header,footer,headtags FROM pp_categories
Result: Unknown column 'ismember' in 'field list'
Database handle: Resource id #22

Looks to me like you did not run the 5.0 upgrade
