Great, thank you for kicking the tires on this  ;D   I'm sure you will some bugs, its inevitable.

I did make a few updates in the last couple of days,  fixed a few odd bugs, and converted most of the block images over to a sprite to lessen the http calls on the portal, added a way to reset the portal page layout,  and other small but needed stuff.

I'm using it for few days, noticed two errors:
Portal mode - Standalone gives error on portal main page:
Code: [Select]
Warning: require_once(/home/***/domains/***/public_html/forum/sources/PortalMain.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/***/domains/***/public_html/index.php on line 26

Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required '/home/***/domains/***/public_html/forum/sources/PortalMain.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/php54/lib/php') in /home/***/domains/***/public_html/index.php on line 26

and on portal homepage there are visible HTML tags

/edit

ok, four errors ::)

Third is wrong submenu placement. Search, Help, Calendar etc. buttons are under first menu button (which is for portal home), on SMf it is under Forum button.
 
last one is portal homepage and forum board index have the same (Forum) label.

Thanks for testing!

What is "standalone" mode supposed to do?

Yeah sorry for such a portal noob question, but I''ve made not pretense that I understand all the modes of the portal, I've only really worked on the front page mode since thats what I use.  How are "standalone" and "integration" used and what is the expected behavior?  I'm honestly not sure.  Once I understand I can then fix those entry points :D

Third is wrong submenu placement. Search, Help, Calendar etc. buttons are under first menu button (which is for portal home), on SMf it is under Forum button.
Thats just where I put it.  Are you wanting
  • The community button to take to you the boardindex and forum button to take you to the portal?
  • Or are you saying you want the forum button to be placed in front of the community button?
  • Or do you want all of the standard existing community dropdown items to be moved to forum button that the portal adds (and if so why ?)
just trying to understand as I put it as it kind of made sense to me but that does not mean its right :P

You mean the page title?  I need to go look.

I was thinking that best option would be doing it like it's done here.

First is Home button (which would be it SimplePortal case portal Home button) without submenu.
Second is Forum home (board index) with submenu (Search, Help etc).

but maybe it's just me being used to how SMF + SP work together :)

I wasn't clear about it.

I meant menu buttons - forum and portal home have the same name.

That is how SP+SMF is supposed to work. SP did install a separate Home and Forum button on SMF, to be toggled in different portal modes.

Installed SimplePortal 2.4 on a clean install of ElkArte 1.0 RC 1. Gave me a file not found error on /sources/subs/BoardIndex.subs.php but still seemed to have installed correctly.

When I am doing a Custom PHP block it is displaying it two times. This has happened on both a Left Side and a Top block. I have also done a Custom HTML block on the front page with no issues.

If you went forward despite errors in the install, you shouldn't be reporting bugs based on that install.  Go back, uninstall it, and wait until Spuds figures out the install problem.

Do you have any other mods installed in your forum? Any that modify Boardindex.subs.php? Did you modify it yourself? Did you check if BoardIndex.subs.php is there via FTP?

Setup is a non modified ElkArte 1.0 RC 1 with no other mods installed. Basically installed ElkArte and right after installed SimplePortal.

BoardIndex.subs.php was renamed to BoardsList.class.php just a little before RC1, and Spuds updated the SP package with the new file name about 4 days ago, may you downloaded it just slightly before the update?

Ahh, seems it was changed a few commits back. Re-download SimplePortal and try installing it again (uninstall the old first).

I'll take a look and see why it may be doing that, I don't think thats related to the install error but as stated, do get the latest package and uninstall / reinstall as the rc1 install error was at least addressed.

Found one mistake that would cause double blocks outside of the portal page and fixed that.  It should fix issue you reported, so get the latest from the repo and let us know :D
