    My Simple Portal v0.1

    okay, this is my cobbled together collection of various code bits and whatnot
    that i've consolidated into one nice script. i was looking for something that
    could provide me with a basic 'portal' page, but without the dependencies or
    over-complexity of something like vbportal or nuke2vb (although those are very
    good). i've been working on this for awhile, and i haven't kept track of where
    i got all of the code bits, so if you see your code in there, let me know and i
    will give you credit when i write some *real* documentation for this script.
    the ones i can remember as of this moment are: PluhNews, OPNews, and some bits
    and ideas from tubedogg, wluke and mister.

    instructions:

    1. edit the portal-config.php file to reflect your preferences, as well as
    all relative paths to your forums. this file is commented, so just follow the
    instructions there.

    2. edit the portal.php file. look for <!-- stuff --> tags, in particular.

    3. edit the portal.css file to reflect your site's color scheme.

    4. upload the files anywhere you wish, so long as your relative paths are
    defined correctly in the portal-config.php file.

    5. enjoy!

    demo server is down for the moment.

    comments, suggestions and flames are welcome.

          pipi,

          do you only get that error with Who's Online? strange if so, since all the functions use the exact same method of database access...

          can you give me a URL where you put your portal up?

                tweak,

                it's a portal in the sense of providing you with a front page that displays interesting information from the forums, as well as pulling information from a specific news forum. if you take a look at the demo site you can see how this can be expanded/extended into a nice front-end to your forums.

                it is intended as a simple alternative to vbportal or nuke2vb, both of which may be too feature-rich for some people's requirements.

                as far as the 'menu' you mentioned, the only one i am aware of on the demo site is the 'slide-in' menu that is implemented in DHTML. if there is enough of an interest in it, i might clean it up and make a nice installation instruction to show how to integrate it into vb (as it is completely dynamic, in that it builds menus depending on what usergroup the member is).

                  Mega,

                  double-check and make sure that your $forumpath and $adminpath variables are correct in portal-config.php. note that they are relative paths, and you shouldn't include a trailing slash.

                  also, did you put the files in the same directory as vb? if so, i wouldn't advise it.

                      That DHTML menu works well man! Good call, I donno what it would be like in NS, but then again, I couldnt care.

                      Everyone who wants a menu like is, try Dynamic Drive. Here is A version of that menu, I donno if its the exact one, but its close.

                          I think.. something along the lines as if you are an administrator.. your box might have more links, like to the admin panel, and everything.. the same for the mods... then just for the regular users, it will just have whatever is default.. or.. umm ya. lol
