This block "Theme Selection" displays each theme, which was installed once on forum. Members see them all. It would be a lot better and less confusing, if they could only see this 2 or 3 themes, they are allowed to select at the moment. Can this be changed?
Looks like a bug ... the selection list in the block was not honoring the selectable themes.   The attached ThemeSelect.block.php should fix this.  It goes in sources/subs/spblocks

For some reason (maybe caused by my changings in portal css) my "articles" in portal look all the same, they have the same styling. In the preview I see other backgrounds, I could select. But after saving the articles, they all will have the same background.

Another thing are the two "reply buttons" there. One tells "reply", the other one tells "write a comment". Both do the same, there will be a new comment then. Why are there two buttons?
I'm not seeing this in the article areas that have checked, so I need some more information.  I checked both portal articles and article blocks.

Using various backgrounds and roundframes in portal blocks is working fine. But I was not able yet to create another header for portal blocks. My tries had very funny results so far. Lol. I think, I did this wrong or I inserted the class for another header in a wrong way. How does this work? I also don't understand, what I need to insert in "Custom Title Style".
a custom style needs to be the complete set of CSS rules for that title.  As a silly example, using the following in a style profile
Code: [Select]
background: green;font-size: 2em;padding: 10px 10px 2px 10px;line-height: 1em;border: 1px solid;border-radius: 10px 10px 0 0;color: #fff;overflow: hidden;text-shadow: 4px 4px #111111;
should give you a starting point of what to do.

I fear, there is something wrong with the smileys on elk11, Spuds. I created a new shoutbox now, but the smileys are not displayed there in the shouts. Only the code of them is to see in shoutbox.
Oh goodie, another bug:bug:The attached PortalShoutbox.subs.php should fix that one:pleading_face:  It goes in sources/subs

Thank you very much, Spuds.  :smiley:  I will try them...

To articles:

This 3 buttons are to see, if I look at a categorie for articles. The buttons say "read more", "reply" and "write a comment".

"Reply" and "write a comment" can both be used, and both do the same: There will be another comment then in this article. So I don't understand, why there are two buttons for the same result. Should the reply-button do something different?


The smileys in shoutbox are displayed now and theme selection is also working perfect.  :smiley:  Thank you very much, Spuds!

Glad we have a couple of the issues fixed.

I'm still not seeing the 3 buttons in any article views (there should only be 2, view more and comment).  What version of SP are you running?

Thats elk11, so the newest version of portal: 1.0.2

I only have 3 buttons, if i look at a category of articles in ACP.
In the "normal view" of articles there are just 2 buttons.

I think may be happening is that you are viewing an article that has comments?.   In that case you would see (3) buttons

"Read More" <- takes you to the full article $txt['sp_read_more']
"Comments" <- takes you to the top of the comment listing $txt['sp-articlesComments']
"Write Comment" <- positions the new comment textbox in  view $txt['sp_write_comment']

The write comment button does not focus/select the textarea, so if you only have one or two comments the buttons look to do the same thing.  I'll make an update that will position the cursor inside the textbox when you select "write comment", it should have done this anyway.

Yes...I changed the language now on forum.


I was confused, because the button in the middle does not say "show comments" in german, it says "reply"....and there is a field for typing, if I click on the button in the middle. Thats still the old german language file there, i made years ago. Articles were not really working those days, so translating was a lot of guessing. :wink:

I will change the text of this button in the middle in the german language file.

Is there a way to have all attachments visible in the "Board News" block?

Also, I'd like to have the avatar show in the recent topics block, instead of the that's next to each post.

FYI, in the admin panel, the icon for the Blocks menu is not showing.
