Getting an error.

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

I'm having a simular error with installing the LOEWEN's papypal mod

FIND FAILED: In file [index.php] could not find:

$template->set_filenames(array('body' => 'index_body.tpl'));

MOD script line #186

I think its because it's not compattable with easymod.
How do I make it compattible.

  • With problems like that in almost all cases you should contact the author of a MOD.
  • This is not the problem of EM in about 99.99% of cases.
  • Usually the problem is that you installed some other MODs that changed some of your files that the MOD is trying to change, now.
  • Old MODs could also fail even on unmodified board, because phpBB is changing a little with the next versions (or even a little more - especially from version 2.0.17 to 2.0.18).
  • In some cases the MOD could be improved to work with your other MODs (that's why you should contact the author of the MOD).
  • In most cases the instructions causing problems could be done manually (and already used instructions should then be deleted from the MOD file), but to do it properly you should contact the author of the MOD.
And remeber - it's almost always faster to install MODs with EasyMOD and if you are advance enough (can install MODs by hand) then you can probably figure out what is wrong. Further more if you are not able to solve the problem then the MOD author (or someone at the support topic for that MOD) can help you with that.
