After floundering a bit with the xml file, I finally got the xml plug-in up and running. (To complicate matters I was migrating servers _and_ changing the directory where the gallery is located, so tracking errors has been challenging.)
It seems like most of the plugin installation worked as expected. The "featured photos" box showed up in the forum.
However, the menu tab did NOT appear. When I view the Plugins, the PhotoPost Navbar Link plugin is there.
But it isn't creating a tab. (I've manually added one in VB for the moment.)
Yes looks to me like your loading the older pre 4.2 navigation which is why I suggested to update your code make sure your using 8.31 and try updating the plugins which is also why I also listed the files.
I think if you do as instructed in my last post your issue will be resolved
That line in adm-plugin.php remove the period 4.2 should be 42 and redo your plugin. If you have the right plugin located in the box when your generating the plugin scan down you should see the navigation part at the bottom.
Bob not sure what the comment asking what you did to me means. Kinda lost on that.
It was a joking reference to the fact that as soon as one thing gets fixed, something else breaks, seems like you're picking on me. I know you're not of course, but I've always had previous PP updates be a total non-event that takes about 10 minutes. This one has taken me all weekend and it's still not working right.
In 8.3 there is most definately a vb4 settings for the plugin in the photopost admin panel. If you where upgrading from an earlier series say 8.2 or earlier did run the photopost upgrade?
If so then go to your photopost admin panel and as long as the latest plugins are being used and you elect to show the photo block on the forum then it will show.
Yes, I did run that previously. After backing up my database, I tried it again, just in case I was mistaken about running it.
The upgrade threw a bunch of errors saying it couldn't insert that stuff as it was already there. Now what should I do?
In 8.3 there is most definately a vb4 settings for the plugin in the photopost admin panel.
OK, reading again, very carefully, solved that mystery. I was looking for it in the VBulletin control panel, where other plugins put their settings and options. So I do have the VB 4 Plugin Settings menu.
It shows ForumHome Photo Block be active. But it's still not appearing on the forum page.
As an FYI... I've just completed migrating the forum and gallery to a new server. The gallery used to have it's own domain, gardenpics.com. I _think_ I've found and corrected all of the many links to that domain.
On the new server I ran the install script again in an effort to fix them all.
This could possibly be related to that, however the "featured photos" script was running on the new server until the fix that got the menu items working. I might have messed something up when I re-uploaded 8.31, as I also re-uploaded the config files per the instructions. Everything else seems to work though, so it would appear the database info etc is correct.
