Installed vbGallery for vBulletin 4.2. Everything went off without a hitch, with one exception.
The Gallery nav button was not created. No biggie. I created one and selected PhotoPost vbGallery as the Product Type. Clicking the button will take you to the new gallery; however, the nav menu highlights the Forum button.
How do I get the nav menu to work right?
My forum is located at everythingaquatic.net/forum/forum.php
I run our product with vb4 there are no issues to my knowledge with the plugin and our product has nothing to do with vBlog
I would suggest you read and follow the instructions in the documentations folder on install for the vb4 plugins. Make sure permissions etc are all correct so the xml will be generated with the proper information.
If you use vbPortal or vBulletin, you can integrate your forum's look and feel into PhotoPost. The vbPortal integration displays your vbPortal top/left side, and bottom, around PhotoPost. The vBulletin integration displays your default vB header/footer templates with PhotoPost. To implement this, open header-inc.php and follow the instructions there. vbPortal users should only edit the vbPortal section (not the vBulletin section), and those who use vBulletin only should only modify the vBulletin section.
But when I open this file there are no instructions. All it is is a PHP if statement determining which version of vBulletin is running.
Where are the instructions to edit this file?
I have also verified the Forum Options on the PP ACP. I type vb4 as the User Registration System. Click save. And it reverts back to vb3. I suspect the missing instructions in the header-inc.php file is the culprit; but can't say for sure.
That is not what I am referring to look at the bottom FOR VBULLETIN 4 ONLY. The stuff your talking about is the last step of install where you set paths and turn on the vbulletin header you already did that. You need to properly install plugins. I would assume if your getting errors on plugins you did not install them correctly which is why I am referring you to the install documentations to read the plugin instructions.
everything is installed correct from the gallery standpoint but your plugin is not installed or active. If your plugin is installed make the variables under the photopost globals plugin are correct. Hard for me to comment without seeing admin area and the plugins.
I am trying! I cannot find the header or footer files. And searching vBulletin only tells me those files are in the database.
Since you have an install on vb4.2, care to point me in the right direction? vBulletin tells me I need to ask here for help with PhotoPost; and you are going to tell me to ask vBulletin for help with their files. I am stuck!
I really have no idea what your talking about. why are you searching for header and footer files?
To install our product you simply follow the install instructions either on the site here or under the documentations folder of the downloaded code.
Basically all you do is run the install script and answer everything correctly and then follow the instructions about installing the xml plugin.
There is nothing in our documentation that has you looking for header or footer files the install is automatic and the only extra step is if your using vb4 you need to generate the product xml file per the instructions and install that info vbulletin product manager.
You can send us an admin login if you want us to see what your issue might be but not quite sure as I posted what you misunderstand here.
Those have nothing to do with your install that is for installs where your not using the vb header footer. for non vb installs that is where you enter a server path to header or footer files you want to load as a header or footer for the gallery. I beleive that is exactly what those settings say there.
remember your site already has a header and footer it uses your vb header and footer.
