I have updated to GL_2.1.2
and am finally getting around to restoring some of the portal blocks that I used successfully on the old the GL_1.8.1 site and cannot get any portal blocks to work
no matter what I try.
I read through everything on this site about the subject (pretty sure
) but have had no luck...
I know the feed URLs are good, it's just that I'm not getting the blocks I have created.
I have verified that PHP "allow_url_fopen" is yes/enabled and (of course) the "enabled" check boxes for the blocks are enabled. If I make the block a "normal" block it will show at a "hello world" level but if I make it a "portal block" it will vanish.
I am logging no errors
and whenever I go back into the configuration for the missing block it will show a date/time value for "Last Feed Update"
It does not matter whether I try one of my site's own feeds or any number of remote feeds they just don't work.
Just for completeness here are a couple of the feeds that I am trying to display.
A Local Example: http://blogdogit.com/backend/BlogDogIt.rss
A Remote Example: http://feeds.feedburner.com/TheChroniclesOfRenard
I've tried Left -vs- Right and All -vs- Homepage Only; each with the same non-result.
I have swapped-in unmodified versions of the lib_custom.php and lib_common.php and only loose the functionality I expect, but still no "portal_blocks". The "php_function" Blocks are good and the "normal" Blocks are good.
It looks to me like I have my website configured to the extent this should work but I am open to learning where I might have screwed up. I sure would appreciate any suggestions...
