How we supposed to report a problem in the locked thread?

Wondering why that MOD you have won't install correctly? Let's take a look

How we supposed to report a problem in the locked thread?

Post by MrStormyNights »

Is it just me or is finding where to post problems for easymod a little trickey? The thread keeps moving and everywhere I turn, every thread concerning it is locked.

I have a mod that I wrote and I used easy mod to install it. everything went fine and the only warnings I got was because of template diferences on the four templates I have installed, which I handled manually with no problems.

The mod makes modifications to admin_user.php, most of the things added fine with the exception of the find, in-line find and inline add. I got no errors but it totally skipped the section and did not modify it? here is one instance:

Code: Select all

# 
#-----[ FIND ]---------------------------------------------------
#

validate_optional_fields($icq, $aim, $msn, $yim, $website, $location, $occupation, $interests, $signature); 

# 
#-----[ IN-LINE FIND ]---------------------------------------------------
#
 
$interests

# 
#-----[ IN-LINE ADD ]---------------------------------------------------
#
 
, $chat_level

The link to the full mod is http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?p=688148 - you have to right click to d/l the file

Also when investigating the problem, I also noticed that one of my templates had somehow been truncated by easymod. This whole section was missing from user_edit_body.tpl after applying a couple mods to it. I got it from one of the other templates and replaced it back into the file.

Code: Select all

{L_YES}   
		
		{L_NO}

{L_SELECT_RANK}
		{RANK_SELECT_BOX}

{L_CHAT_LEVEL} 
		{S_CHAT_LEVEL}

{L_POST_COUNT}

{L_DELETE_USER}?

{L_DELETE_USER_EXPLAIN}

{L_BANCARD}:
{L_BANCARD_EXPLAIN}

{S_HIDDEN_FIELDS} 
		
		   

{S_HIDDEN_FIELDS}

I will gladly give you access to the site and the database if needed to investigate these issues. All 12 of the mods I installed with easymod are listed and they are in the admin/mods directory.

I also have one mod that has been installed and continues to show up on the list of installable mods.

I love this mod and really want to use it becuase it does save tons of time, but with my experiences so far I really do not trust I am getting a quality installs.

Anyway, I haven't read your actual question yet, but I will in a sec and reply again. ;)

OK, well, here's my verdict:

1) phpBB 2.2 is processing the HTML that you pasted, which it shouldn't be.
2) The command is IN-LINE AFTER, ADD, not IN-LINE AFTER. If you had look before continuing with the installation, you probably would have seen that command listed under the Commands Not Recognized header.
3) I think I may have had a 3, but the distraction of the distorted page made me forget it.... :roll:

Everything is brand new and you are the first to post in this subforum, congrats :P

Code: Select all

#-----[ IN-LINE ADD ]---------------------------------------------------
This is an invalid command. It's IN-LINE AFTER, ADD and like GP said it will probably appear on your unprocessed commands list. I need to make it more clear when this kind of thing happens though ;)

Usually it is the MOD script and not EM that is having the problem. I would not be surprised if this truncation was related to something that is incorrect in your MOD script. I'm sleeply right now, but I'll take a look at your MOD tomorrow if I get a chance. One thing I can say is the order of execution of the commands in the MOD is very important.

Thanks for the replies :)

Sorry about that, I thought I checked those tags, but I guess I missed it and I dont remember seeing it in the commands not precessed, but that may have been an oversight on my part.

Again, thanks for the wonderful mod! I have like 35 mods on my list to install, and some of them are real bears to install when you wide awake, let alone late at night when I have time to play with it, and this makes it soo very much easier.

I will update my mod and fix those IN-LINE AFTER, ADD after problems, sometimes I am my own worst enemy, but luckily for everyone else, I am usually very good at figuring out the problem before asking for help and making myself look the fool.

Thanks again.

BTW, this is a lists of the mods that I have installed so far, and the real funny one is Member Country Flags by umm Nuttzy. LOL I had to modify the template just to get easymod to recognize it and then had to fix some of the things it was looking for to make it work.

There is probably an extra script in the mod directory, maybe an upgrade script, which EM is reading as a different mod/version to the one instralled.

Wow! That's a pretty nice list :D As for CF, what was the problem?

And for that one MOD that appears in the list, it is probably b/c if the ' in the name.
