  • xeon365: ie where username profile link.. its just getting the membergroup color directly and adding it as inline style.. would be better if it instead just added the membergroup as a css class that can be styled by the theme

  • xeon365: omg why isn't membergroup got proper css class.. not dumping inline css style

  • [SiNaN]: SimplePortal 2.3.5 package is listed in Stable SimplePortal Packages category in Downloads area.
    October 03, 2014, 06:08:01 AM
  • stanyy: SP 2.3.5 is not available in the downloads section?? The big download link on the homepage points newcomers to the downloads section who then download 2.3.4. Not good.

  • Mulwa: if simpleportal team could make some of the blocks like articles to display photos just like how ebay does, it would be very great for shopping

It looks to me like the News block is active.

To disable the block.

Admin >> Simple Portal >> Blocks >> Block List

Look for the News Block.

Your welcome.

BTW I'm UK too.

The modify button is on the right of the disable button.

Follow the directions I gave ya and you will find it.

The thing to remember when starting a forum from fresh is "Not to rush and take it steady."

Oh really?! :D

And yeah, I quested that ive rushed it abit, the part im struggleing with most is organizeing the categorys correctly and that, so its all easy to navagate, and so people know where to post for each subject :/ its hard than i thought...

and i did follow your instructions, but theres no option to change what it says, only the name of it? :/ i would show you an image but it wont allow mt to post one

OK if you go into the block list again as before.

On the right hand side you should see the word Action

There should be 4 images below this.

a green ( or red) button. active if green.

A spanner = Modify

4 arrows = Move

and finally the delete button.

I'm willing to have a look if you like to grant a temp admin.

Before you do what does the error log say?
