Medal System assistance

Post by Grim » Sat Dec 10, 2011 2:50 pm

I have installed your medals mod to my phpbb3 forum and uploaded a "test" medal in .gif format to my forum /images/medals directory. But after creating a category and then creating a medal, the medal does not appear in the drop down to select a medal to use. The medal size is 160 x 52 pixels and 2.5kb.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated!

You say after creating a directory? The directory will already be there if you follow the MOD install correctly - then copy the .gif into the /images/medals directory.
If you have created the directory yourself, ensure the directory is permissioned 755 via ssh or ftp client.

let me know how you get on,
oddfish.

Sorry, I meant category. I edited my post.

I created a category, then created a medal and when attempting to select the medal from the drop down, no medals appear.

I checked, and the medals directory is set to 755

A site url would be handy ...

I just tried it and for whatever reason I can not view it.

I uploaded the medals / devices from the contrib directory as well and can not view those either from the browser. Strange

yeah frustrating eh but always a good check up first.

your image permission in the medals folder is set to 644 at least as it must be readable?
