SimplePortal 2.2 Released!
« on: April 02, 2009, 06:56:28 AM »
The SimplePortal Team is now celebrating the long awaited release of SimplePortal 2.2! The build up to this release has been long and we would like to thank our many dedicated supporters for their patience and continued support during the development of this version. The SimplePortal Team is as excited as you are by this release, so we hope that you enjoy using it!

What's new?

The richest world of blocks
With 30 built-in blocks, SimplePortal now serves you the richest world of blocks. It includes 27 highly customizable predefined blocks, and 3 types of custom content based blocks (for BBC, HTML and PHP content). With this version, every single block has been re-coded so that it is more efficient and better meets your needs.

Your portal is where you want it!
Our new version of SimplePortal introduces two new portal modes; "Standalone" and "Integration". Turn your forum into a CMS with "Frontpage" mode, switch to the "Integration" mode to use blocks in forum, or use the revolutionary "Standalone" mode to run your portal in a different directory. Your portal is where you want it!

SimplePortal is the first portal modification for SMF with full-standalone support!

Full control over block styles
The new Advanced Style Options give you full control over the styles of each block in your portal. You can now select default classes, set custom styles, or choose not to display title and/or body at all!

Intelligent blocks
SimplePortal introduces a new term to the world of portals: Intelligent blocks. Intelligent blocks are capable of detecting relevant mods and displaying information from them. Currently, SimplePortal includes 5 intelligent blocks and supports 7 popular SMF mods: Users Online Today, SMF Gallery, SMF Media Gallery, SMF Arcade, E-Arcade, SMF Shop and zCommunity!

Custom Display Options
SimplePortal 2.2 also comes with Custom Display Options. This feature allows you to fully control the display options of a block, allowing you to choose exactly where your blocks are shown. With this new powerful system, you will be able to choose which blocks are shown for custom actions and dynamic or static URLs!

Database Tools
The new SimplePortal Database Tool is designed to fix any database issues related to SimplePortal in seconds! This will also allow you to upgrade your portal database in the future, instead of uninstalling and reinstalling it!

Right to Left Language Support
Version 2.2, now fully supports RTL (right to left language) with special CSS designed for this purpose. Although we don't have any Right to Left Language translations, if you are interested in translating SimplePortal into your language, contact Jade or LHVWB via PM.


Download SimplePortal 2.2 Now!
 - from The official SMF Mod site.
 - or from Our very own SimplePortal downloads page.


Upgrading from older versions
There has been a large development jump with many code and feature changes. Because of this, you will have to uninstall older versions of SimplePortal, if you have any installed. None of your SimplePortal data will be lost from SimplePortal 2.x versions, as the uninstall process will preserve your settings, blocks and articles.

Three easy steps to upgrade your portal!
  • Uninstall your old version of SimplePortal.
  • Download SimplePortal 2.2 from one of the download locations above.
  • Install SimplePortal 2.2, and you are ready to go!

What's in store for the future?
As of now, SimplePortal has a fairly developed block system. So, in further versions the focus will be on making SimplePortal more modular. This will include an advanced article system, custom pages, and possibly a shoutbox. Of course, your feedback will guide the direction of any future release.

Thanks for reading! We hope that you enjoy using SimplePortal as much as we continue to enjoy creating and supporting it!





Regards,
The SimplePortal Team

Give me give me give me

When you say UNINSTALL does that also mean delete the files from admin - after you uninstall you still see the files do you have to delete them from the admin panel ?

Love it

Thanks

Hi

When you say removed - did you delete the files from the admin page as well ?

Thanks

And as always:

This topic is not for support.

Just a forewarning.

Please use the Install and Upgrade or English Support boards for support.
Ms. Eliana Tamerin

It 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.

We had to replace the install script inside the package due to a bug in block update query. This only affects SMF 1.1 version with SimplePortal installed before. If you didn't get this error while installing, you do not have to do anything.

Code: [Select]
Database Error
Unknown column 'sp_smfGallery' in 'where clause'
File: /srv/www/htdocs/Packages/temp/install1-1.php
Line: 566

If you get this error, download the package again and use it.

Looks GREAT!! Thanks!

2 quick questions...

My RSS Feed "lost" the images that once were attached to FIRST feed I had... Anyway to get that back? (I see now there are new icons) and think that has something to do with it..

Also, is there a way to RESIZE the RSS Feed Block, as it now has "shrunk" and uses the side-scrollbar... This is OK, but prefer to have all my content displayed in full on the front page...

Lastly, I got the "new Calendar" to work - looks good - but also kept the old one underneath to show "events" in "words" so that's a good combo.... but saw another site that had a Analog Clock? How to do this?

Thanks for the BEST portal!!

Oh yeah, can you change the "Article" position too now?

Oh yeah, the site in question is www.f-1chat.com Thanks!

Please use proper forum sections to get support, this isn't support topic!

Excellent work...

First time install for me as had problems with 2.1 and minor clashes with mods and themes when running 2.0b4. This time around everything installed perfectly.

Even managed to edit Sources/SPortal2.php replacing Gallery2 with Gallery so that SMF Gallery Pro blocks work a dream (Gallery2 only refers to SMF Gallery-Lite version)

Thanks to everyone - very clean code and no errors in error log running RC1, heavily customised. Must be doing something right.
