Installing plugins CORRECTLY in bb_plugins.php

Author Anonymous

From mini BB instructions :

"Include link to the addon_members.php somewhere in one of your templates (statistics, user info etc.) - on your choice."

Could you kindly show how ?
Thank you.

"Include" example:

<a href="addon_members.php">MEMBERS</a>

Another words, paste this code into necessary file.

The main point, Paul, is how "Members"' list could be clearly visible to all users in the public, (i.e. by inserting it at the Header).

MiniBB instructions say it might be delicate. How could/should it be done ?

Do you have an idea, in general, what is the header and what is HTML?

hmmm...i'm trying to add on a few plugins but everytime i add the codes to the bb_plugins.php file, i'm always getting the code at the top of the board itself?

i added the code to the very top of the plugins file.

site at [REMOVED_URL]

any help? in this case i'm trying to add the avatar plugin and i've tried the disclaimer pluging and was getting the same error too. plugin codes appear at the top.

thank you very much!

maybe make sure to add the code BELOW this:

if (!defined('INCLUDED776')) die ('Fatal error.');

Thank you.

I have to say on both the disclaimer solution and avatars download, the instructions didnot said to paste the codes AFTER

if (!defined('INCLUDED776')) die ('Fatal error.');




That would have helped alot! But then I guess I was probably the only one pasting the codes above that line and totally below that line.

Thanks again. :)

shellie, such instruction is possible, I guess, but it can insult someone :) <?php means beginning of a PHP script and ?> means its end. People are not expected to put the commands outside the scripts :) Inside they work better, as you may be saw already :)

You don't have to learn a lot these days. This thread is 8 years old.
We have miniBB compiler now, which allows to compile & go package for newbies.
