Screwed Up Installation of Optimal Titles

Postby prashamk » Sat Oct 04, 2008 11:42 am

Hi Guys,


It seems as if I have screwed up the installation of Optimal Titles V1.0.2. Checkout www.its2hot.in and see the Page Title and you shall know.

Moreover don't forget to see "EG Delete" on the top left corner of your screen.

Above all I have lost formating of middle part (lower than the one decided by overall_header.html). See there is difference between margins of banner and the lower body.

Please help.

As with every mod, one must perform backups of the modified files (and db) to allow you to easily go back to normal when something goes wrong (in most case due to typos introduced while copy pasting).

So here, it looks like you did not properly followed the code changes for overall_header.html, the :
Code: Select all
# EG DELETE


part is a comment within a standard replace with :
Code: Select all
#
#-----[ REPLACE WITH ]------------------------------------------
# EG Delete

This particular replace with is asking you to replace something by nothing, which is a synonymous for delete, hence the comment ;)

1) I've backed up my files using Cpanel.

But the issue is that few users have made some posts after I did the full backup. Is it possible to retain those posts If I choose to restore the entire backup?

2) I have changed the "EG Delete" thingy. Now its has gone be still there are other issues to be solved.

Please help.

Well this mod does not change anything in the db, so you can safely put back your backuped files, the one modified by the mod.
I think you can even only put back overall_header.html, and re try to properly mod it, the other files seems to be ok.

Don't forget to clear your template's cache once done, in the style acp ;)

Looks like you've not understood my point.

I did not take backup of individual files. I did entire backup using Cpanel. Hence I if now restore the entire backup everything including db would be restored. Hence I may loose some data.

Is it possible to download the backup file (.taz or something). Uncompress it on my computer and they upload/replace the files that I have changed for this MOD?

Well if you can download it, yes you can do that ;)

IMPORTANT :
________________________________________
Once you will have installed the mod, you will have to empty the phpBB/cache/ folder before the mod will fully work,
just delete all files BUT the .htaccess.


Above note is given in the instructions of "Dynamic Titles" Mod.

Now I remember that I have deleted all the files including .htaccess :(

Is it possible that I may have lost all the formatting due to this?

No, the .htaccess is just here for securing access to the cache/ dir, just put it back there from your backup or from the phpBB3 package and you'll be fine ;)

1) Restoring only .htaccess didn't work.
2) I downloaded the most recent back up to my PC. Then uncompressed it and then uploaded all the required files from the backup to the server.
Purged the cache from ACP and now its fine.

Thank god.


BTW thanks to you too.

:lol:

So now you can try to re implement the mod, I suggest you do it on a local / test server to make sure you installed it well before you upload the modified files.

It's a very easy to install mod, trust me ;)

Yeah, that's a good suggestion.

BTW do you know any good tutorial for FTP? (Yeah I sound silly)

I want to install the Gallery Mod but one MOD is CHMOD 777 which needs FTP knowledge.
