Re: WOW WTF 1/2 of the plugins here do not work

Moved to PunBB Discussion, since this isn't a bug wink

I'm going to assume you're talking about modifications, since your comments make more sense in that context wink
Most modifications do work in the most recent version. However, a lot of mods use a somewhat strict install_mod.php file to make database changes. That file uses a very strict version check. However, it doesn't mean that the mods don't work. There are instructions in several places for editing install_mod.php to work on newer versions if it doesn't already:

Re: WOW WTF 1/2 of the plugins here do not work

He may have a point though.

It might be a good idea if someone at least went periodically through the Administration plug-ins linked off the 'official' punBB.org downloads page - http://punbb.org/downloads.php - and ensured they worked for the latest punBB version without any requirement for obscure code tweaks.

Any downloads on that 'official' page could be, as it were, 'officially supported'. I think that wouldn't be an unreasonable expectation of most new punBB users.

The rest of the mods etc on punres can be the usual dog's breakfast, as they are, and that's OK.

Re: WOW WTF 1/2 of the plugins here do not work

Which plugins don't work with newer versions though? I'm under the impression that they all do tongue

here. watch this:
http://www.6x6productions.com/tutorials … ugins.html

it's the first of hopefully many video tuts i'll produce for PunBB. it's really rough but it does the job. pay particular attention to the file names... they are the plugins you requested help installing.

note: this vid is out of order. i had hoped to do everything from the beginning. well final product will be from the beginning.

Re: WOW WTF 1/2 of the plugins here do not work

Wow, a handy service for punBB neophytes, Dr Jeckyl. Keep it up!!

If you could eventually cover all the basic steps of a punBB install (download zip off punbb.org, MySQL db create, upload files to server, run config.php + install basic admin add-ins) that would be excellent and very helpful to a lot of folks I am sure.

A series of GIF format screen-captured images pasted into a standard HTML web page would be a lot faster to browse though.  smile It would also be searchable. The content within Flash based presentations is not, of course...

That's cool, most helpful for new users.

Yes, I plan on creating screen shots of the install and admin screens of PunBB 1.3.

Similar to this: http://punbb.org/docs/screens/

Re: WOW WTF 1/2 of the plugins here do not work

most free webhosts do not support php or mysql which is required to run PunBB.

Re: WOW WTF 1/2 of the plugins here do not work

i know that but its not to run punbb but to host a web page i can host that but it eats up bandwidth

That's great.

But a better model would - perhaps - be the kind of illustrated step-by-step guide you find on www.howtoforge.com - for example this simple one (of MANY) by the industrious falko:

http://www.howtoforge.com/linux_apache2 … cubeloader

Having a page or two like that on the main punBB.org docs page would make a lot of support headaches go away, I suspect.

Re: WOW WTF 1/2 of the plugins here do not work

i'll see what i can do. should be easier too.

Re: WOW WTF 1/2 of the plugins here do not work

Cool. There is a constant demand for a user-friendly basic install guide from new punBB users. You will win a lot of friends smile

When/if punBB 1.3 gets released, there will also be a demand for a user-friendly upgrade guide too, I suspect.
