 A couple of tips..

You can also merely revert the layout of the blocks by enabling "Display blocks on forum" then by moving a block on the forum, and then going back to the portal.. the blocks will magically appear..

Also you can move the blocks with everything working fine.. if you delete either the layout function in the Subs-Portalphp. under "Load headers if necessary" or the subsequent code using the layout function  , the one hitch with this being that the blocks dont keep in place and revert to their original layout afterwards

Also I do not believe it is a problem with the database as the same thing occurs when a guest tries to move the panels and that does not involve the database but rather cookies..

SMF 2.0.2
SP 2.3.5

I'm getting a heap of errors;

Ok.. first up. When you get a bunch of errors like that the only option is to use the package parser, find out what changes it makes and manually code the package.

However

AS IT STANDS THIS MOD DOES NOT WORK WITH SP 2.3.4 AND SMF 2.0.2

Despite the best efforts of Froome and Myself we have not been able to get it working.

What does work:
It is possible to move the blocks around
It does save the block structure information to the database

What doesnt work:
it doesnt seem able to pull the block layout from the database and as a result either
a) You lose all the blocks when you go back to the portal page
b) by adjusting the code you can move the blocks and not have them dissapear but at the same time it doesnt remember your layout.

at the moment this mod needs developing/fixing. Neither Froome or myself have managed to fix it, and the original author seems to have given up on it, although Sinan still seems to be around the forum. Will drop him/her a pm and see if we can get anywhere.

Indeed it seems like it may in fact be something got to do with the layout of how the blocks are moved, but I do not know enough about Php in order to identify and then fix the problem.

Indeed FireDitto, certainly for 2.3.5 the mod will not function as it was last updated for it to be compatible with 2.3.4 therefore you may just have to wait and see whether Sinan decides to upgrade it when he has the time to be compatible with 2.3.5

From what I have seen it is interesting that members have their blocks erased, whilst guests merely have their blocks reverted back to their original positions. This is obviously I assume as the guests cookie used to work the block is obviously not working at all, but the members are pulling something from the database just that something is evidently faulty. Also moving any blocks will recall other blocks. For example by minimizing one set of blocks you can keep those blocks when you move around the panels and then when you move those blocks the original blocks you moved suddenly become visible. Yet it is obviously a long way from anything as nothing is pulling the block positions subsequent to you moving them.

Also Sinan I believe could easily fix this mod, but unfortunately he seems at the moment  not to be available to really work on this mod..

The underlying fact is that there seems to be some error in how the cookie/database is saving the information and therefore the information is not being accessed properly and is creating the current error.

Experimenting with cookies and what is most interesting is that it seems to save the structure including the moves to the cookies... but for example if you removed one block from the list on the cookie it will appear as it is not being messed up by the mod ruining everything when it pulls the data..

What is interesting is that it still saves the info to the cookies and database if you delete the layout function but the whole problem does not occur, merely they do not get removed..

If it is just a case of moving blocks where you want them to show then that can be done with 2.3.5
