You have to install this block with the SMF package manager. It installs like a normal SMF mod does.

Hmm, I uploaded the file "SP_block_HacksPark_ShoutBox_2.2.zip" to the packages folder via FTP, then I go to admin, packages, and I only have the following listed:
Hack's Park Shoutbox  2.0
SimplePortal  2.2.1

both have been installed.  the SP_block package is not listed.

I am running SMF 2.0 RC1-1

Uploading packages to the 'Packages' directory doesn't seem to work with SMF 2 RC1.1 (it doesn't detect them), can't you upload it via the package manager?

Thanks for the help, doing that gave me an error saying it was empty.  After reading about it on the SMF forums I was able to get it installed by creating a new folder in packages, then uploading the unzipped block package files into the new folder, then it showed up in the package manager and installed perfectly, Thanks guys!

Nathaniel,

Just curious, but would the code you used to make Hack's Park work in a portal be something adaptable to make the same thing happen with say http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=182 Complete PJIRC Integration by 3guk?

I'm just looking for some code to help me get started in accomplishing that for PJIRC and I'm only a couple of steps up from a n00b coder :)

Thanks!

PJIRC, in my opinion, truly belongs on its own page. As it requires you to load java and it only works once per page (instead of being persistent across pages like shoutbox is, as its tied to the SMF database and not an IRC server) and prevents users from staying logged into the IRC chat simultaneously with browsing the forum.

On its own page, it can be opened in a new window or tab and left there, but as a block is forced to load on each page. With the addition of Java, that gives each page anywhere from a 15-30 second load on high speed (cable, DSL, sat) internet, not to even start touching dialup speeds. That's inconsiderate to users who merely wish to browse the forum.
Ms. Eliana TamerinIt should be painfully obvious by now that I don't respond to support PMs. Don't send me PMs for support. They will be ignored and deleted, post on the Support Boards to get support.

Ah you've broken my heart Ms Tamerin  :'( I thought PJIRC in a Portal block would be the ultimate chat box for our site. I had no idea there would be such technical constraints, but you've opened my eyes to using a tab as an alternative which is something I hadn't considered. Thanks  :thumbsup:

Is there anyway to get this package block to work with SMF 1.1.9? I tried installing it on my SMF 1.1.9 board the shoutbox and block and it does not load,show,work. I installed it on my SMF 2.0 RC1-1 forum and it works.

Make sure that you have the 'SP_block_HacksPark_ShoutBox_2.2.zip' package and the latest version of HacksPark_ShoutBox (2.0). At the moment it looks like their domain has expired, so you may not be able to download a copy of the latest shoutbox version. :/

Maybe this is just me but its doing my nut in, whenever I try to install the block via package manager it tells me the package is either corrupt or invalid. I've tried downloading it a few times always with the same outcome.

Any help is appreciated.

Has this happened for any other packages?

It likely to be the usual issues that cause problems with packages. Try chmoding your packages directory to 0777. If that doesn't work then create a directory within your 'packages' directory called 'temp', chmod that to 0777 as well.

Thanks for the quick reply,

I've changed the chmod settings (including a temp folder) but its still throwing up the same issue, I've just tried another package and it went through with no problems. I'm highly confused :P

Try redownloading the package, its possible that it your browser may have not downloaded it right (very unlikely though).

Also, try uploading the package straight into the 'packages' directory, that could work as well.

I'd already tried downloading it a few times, even using different browsers. If I FTP it straight to the packages folder it doesn't show it the "browse packages" section so I can't apply it.

I've no idea what's going on with it, as I said other packages aren't giving me any trouble.

Again, thanks for the help.

All you need to do is extract it and repack it into a new .zip, it installs fine after that.

Now why the sound doesn't work in the chat module, I have no idea, and wish it would work.

One of the my computers has had issues with compressing archives in the past, that could have been the issue (although I did test those packages before uploading them).

I have re-compressed the package using a different computer, so hopefully the packages on the download site and the first post of this topic should work properly.
