  • Blog 2.0.2 installation problem

    Hello:
    I have unzipped , uploaded the entire blog folder named UPLOAD into main forum folder named vb;
    Path looks like this : myforum.com\vb\upload

    when importing the product-vbblog from xml folder;
    an error msg pops saying:
    Please upload the files that came with the vBulletin Blog
    before installing or upgrading!

    Note:
    forum version: 3.8.4 PL2
    Blog 2.0.2

    All the files are there !!
    What am i missing ?

    You should have uploaded the contents of the UPLOAD folder to http://myforum.com/vb -- NOT uploading the folder itself.

    Whatever is inside the UPLOAD folder, transfer those files to your VB folder.

      Thanks ENF for your help;
      Blog upload folder has 4 subfolders: admincp, clientscript, images include;
      VB folder has these subfolders as well ;
      do I upload the CONTENT of these folders into the same folders which (already exists in VB folder)
      since vb folder has its own admincp clientscript etc etc ?
      example:
      Do I upload the content of admincp from Blog to admincp of VB folder ? then upload the rest into their respective folders?

        You just simply upload the structure as is and those folders in your blog UPLOAD folder will merge themselves into the existing folders on your server.

        Your Blog AdminCP folder will automatically merge into your server AdminCP folder, etc. etc.

          That did it (:
          Many thanks indeed.
          Final question:
          The link for the blog on navbar forum main page shows by default on one style
          but not the other style;
          I have 4 customized styles;
          how can I place the blog link on all styles?
          or
          place it on members/ users CP ?

          Again Many thanks for the prompt reply.

          regards

            You'll need to update those templates on your custom styles. It should be just the 'NavBar' template only, just make the custom style NavBar templates match the vB default style.

              Thanks again for your help;
              I searched for (blog, blogs, blog.php) in all styles Navbar templates I failed to locate it.
              Note:
              when I open to edit navbar templates I can see all the link on the navbar Except the blog link on the customized style.

                I don't own or have access to the vBulletin Blog software (your version) - so I can't tell you exactly where the code might be or what form it's in. I just assume that it's an added link from the vBulletin Blog product install....

                Here's my guess:

                Search for this:
                Code:
                $template_hook[navbar_buttons_left]
                See if that appears in your default NavBar template, where the Blog link shows up.
                If you do find it, add it in the same place in your custom styles [NavBar template] and see what the result is.

                Good Luck.

                  When searched ONLY navbar comes up;
                  This is the template which shows the blog link BUT it does NOT mention anything about blog or blog.php.
                  located somewhere else other than navbar ?

                  looks like this:
                  PHP Code:
                  $template_hook[navbar_buttons_left]
                  <
                  td class="vbmenu_control"><a rel="help" href="faq.php$session[sessionurl_q]accesskey="5">$vbphrase[faq]</a></td>
                  <if 
                  condition="$show['communitylink'] AND $show['popups']">
                  <
                  td class="vbmenu_control"><a id="community" href="$show[nojs_link]#community" rel="nofollow" accesskey="6">$vbphrase[community]</a> <script type="text/javascript"vbmenu_register("community"); </script></td>
                  <else />
                  <if 
                  condition="$show['memberslist']">
                  <
                  td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="memberlist.php$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[members_list]</a></td>
                  </if>
                  <if 
                  condition="$show['quick_links_groups']">
                  <
                  td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="group.php?$session[sessionurl]">$vbphrase[social_groups]</a></td>
                  </if>
                  </if>
                  <
                  td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="calendar.php$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[calendar]</a></td>
                  <if 
                  condition="$show['popups']">
                  <if 
                  condition="$show['searchbuttons']">
                  <if 
                  condition="$show['member']">
                  <
                  td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="search.php?$session[sessionurl]do=getnew" accesskey="2">$vbphrase[new_posts_nav]</a></td>
                  <else />
                  <
                  td class="vbmenu_control"><a href="search.php?$session[sessionurl]do=getdaily" accesskey="2">$vbphrase[todays_posts]</a></td>
                  </if>
                  <

                    Yeah, see that first line? that's the hook call for the product addons such as the Blogs or Project Tools.

                    $template_hook[navbar_buttons_left]

                    This is line that that makes your blog link work or show up.

                    If you add that line to your NavBar templates in your custom styles, it should work.
