Well, you haven't provided any information about your actual problem. Just saying it doesn't work isn't going to get you anywhere ...

bye, Dirk

i uploaded in the admins plugin section, when i click install i get this

The website cannot display the page
HTTP 500
Most likely causes:
The website is under maintenance.
The website has a programming error.


ive checked the files against the pic posted above and gone over the install instructions, it all seems ok. but its obviously not Cry

A 500 could be anything. Do you have access to your webserver's error_log file (not to be confused with Geeklog's error.log)?

Well, I've now also been noting some problems, but I can see a small difference between my tree and the tree posted earlier here. One of the biggest differences is that I can't find the upgrade.inc file, anywhere, I didn't even get it with my downloaded version of the forum. Other than that, my tree is exactly as the tree depicted above, some files however I susspect have changed their names.

But my biggest headache is that I get NO feedback on what have gone wrong, all it says is "the plugin was not installed". Then dead.... Have I had the success of downloading a dud from sourceforge?

Not sure what you downloaded from SourceForge ... The latest version of the forum plugin for Geeklog is here (or over on portalparts.com).

Sounds like you forgot to copy the lib-portalparts.php to your system directory. Please read the installation instructions again carefully.

bye, Dirk

Right you are, and it seemed to make me need to do a fith reinstall of the whole thing today, but I will leave that for tomorrow, because right now I am very tired.

Thank you for your help, tomorrow I will be here in a different part of the forum whining about not doing something right Wink.
