Visits Portal

http://drewschofield.slarti3.myfreeforum.org/index.php

I've inserted the code exactly how it was shown on http://howtodoit.myfabforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=332

and it is showing the title twice but no visits despite me being online as both editor and admin.

What is the code you have put in overall_header.tpl? What are the setting on the VISITS portal?
Vicky

This is right at the top before <doctype etc>

Code:
</td>
</tr>
</table>


At the bottom after <!--End switch etc>

Code:
<table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="2">
  <tr>
    <td width="125" align="left" valign="top">

<table><tr>
<td valign="top">
{MYFF.VISITS}
</td></table></td>
    <td valign="top" align="center">


The settings in the VISITS portal are

Title - Users Online in 24 Hours

Show Title - Yes

Count - 100

Minutes - 1440

Date Format - j M H:i
myff admin

Can you give us the whole of your overall_header.html file.

I managed to sort out why the title was displaying twice, I had some rogue code in it which was pointing to VISITS twice.

It still isn't showing any visitors and the forum style is all messed up though
myff admin

This level of editing really does demand html knowledge.

This first step though is elimination, just remove {MYFF.VISITS} and you can see if your template edit has broken the style, or if the cms_visits.tpl template is breaking the style.
Vicky

I've removed {MYFF.VISITS} and the template has stayed the same.

All that happened was it took away the title of the portal.

I deleted all the code to make the portal work and the style still isn't displaying right.

My style is a copy of AZ_classydark
myff admin

Sounds to me like a mistake was made in the edits to overall_header.html and you should make another copy so you can copy the correct code back into overall_header.html.

It really is not at all easy to spot errors like this once they have happened, better to get back to something that works.
Vicky

I've no free slots left.

I used them all trying to get the visits thing to work and when I copy the style to one already used after deleting it it still looks messed up.

Anyway i can delete the 4 slots altogether to start fresh?
myff admin

You can delete the slots to free them up.
Vicky

I've tried with a different style, it sorts of works but it has made all the fonts on the forum so big.

How would I go about making them smaller?
myff admin

Sorry to sound unhelpful, but to make them smaller we need to figure out what made them bigger, and I'm struggling to see that.

If you take out {MYFF.VISITS} what happens?
Vicky

Think it wasn't compatable with some styles as I have installed another style yet again, one I am happy with and it is working OK.

Thanks for the help
myff admin

Okay, though it would have been interesting to pursue this one bit by bit so we could have found out what the issue was.

Can do this as editor while making no difference to what I have already done to the forum?
myff admin

You would still have to make the template the one seen by guests, all in all it seems too much of a risk of more things going wrong if you have found another template that works for you. Thanks for the offer though.

I'm not moving to version 3 yet so I am happy to help if you want
myff admin

Well if you are happy.

I am assuming the fonts are okay until you make the changes?

We need to know if it is putting in the {MYFF.VISITS} that causes the issue or just the overall_template.html edits without the {MYFF.VISITS} when we can see the problem with that minimum number of changes needed to show it, we need the template visible to guests so members here or me can see if they can spot where the font issue comes from.
Vicky

Yes the fonts are OK until I install any of the code to make the portal work.

I have removed {MYFF.VISITS} and the font problem is still there

http://drewschofield.slarti3.myfreeforum.org
myff admin

In that case there probably is not a lot of point in pursuing it, the portal changes are about creating a table layout of the portals and rest of the forum, and that does require getting the css classes right and as Nick points out otherwise dealing with phpbb3 differences.
