    The credit to me would be much better suited aimed towards Redmak, he is the originator of the codefix, I just slapped it in the file.

    The script is looking good

      Doesn't seem to work for me. I just get a white screen on both pluhnews.php and pluhheadlines.php

        Did you make the necessary changes to PluhConfig.php?


        • #79
          This is my config file...

          //This is the Config file to get PluhNews running.
          //Set some Variables

          //Retrieve news from the correct forum, which is the forumid
          $newsforums = 32;

          //Number of news items to show at once
          $newsitems = 10;

          //Path to your forums directory (leave out trailing slash)
          $forumspath = "/vb";

            Can I have a URL?

              I'm willing to bet there's no directory under the root file system called /vb. Try the full directory path instead. It should look something like:

              Steve Machol, former vBulletin Customer Support Manager (and NOT retired!)
              Change CKEditor Colors to Match Style (for 4.1.4 and above)

                Well, I tried two different paths. One of which was /public_html/vb and just /vb. Neither worked.

                I'd give you a link, but my server just went down. VenturesOnline is changing hardware apparently.

                But the link to the vb is

                Pluh News is
                Headlies is

                Think that should do it.

                I'll try and get the full path, smachol, when the board comes back up. I figured that'd be my last step to get this working.

                  Works now, there was a capitalization error. In WSFTP I like to have all remote extensions forced as lower case...I was trying it as lower case when it had to be uppercase.

                    Funny how picky php is...

                    I learnt that the hard way.

                      You don't need to add the require admin/config bit since this is already done by global.php

                      Also global.php connects to the mysql database so your connection isn't really necessary. Just use $DB_site instead of $db

                      Great little news add-on you got here

                      Thnx for the credit Bane

                        I agree....for some reason, it doesn't look to good in Netscat though. If you have more than 5 news items, for some reason, the font goes haywire.

                          Some reason it's not processing the required's in mine

                          Fatal error: Failed opening required './admin/config.php' (include_path='') in /path/to/boards/global.php on line 66

                          any ideas?

                            Check for proper font opening and closing commands. This also includes bolds, italics, and other font related things.

                            MSIE is far more tolerant of what you MEANT instead of the actual HTML code.

                            View the source of the generated page to find the gross errors, then armed with that information, you can visit the source code and identify where in the loop the errant HTML is being spit out.

                              im positive that's not an issue

                                I will check for bugs with the HTML. The issue is that the loop is spitting out the HTML in a strange manner. I think...

                                I'll work on updating that unnecessary require (thanks!)
