Title: Where the Heck is the Manual for this thingymawhatsit?
Post by: Alan Cramer on January 21, 2002, 01:55:21 AM
A manual is being written as we speak.  We shall include one with YaBB SE, and include an online one which will be most up-to-date, and covers almost anything.

I have a good typing speed and I don't mind doing screen dumps, so if you need some help with specific topics I'll gladly help out.  :D

TODO List for Manual:

That is all that is needed so far.  If anyone with lots of time, can send me a text file with any one of these things, and if they want can include screenshots, I would be most greatful.  A lot of my time is spent looking a code in YaBB SE, so I don't have the time to type it out. (plus anyone who has downloaded welcomeinc.php and has seen the readme will know that I am not good with wording things properly.)  ;)

Hi, I'm totally new to all this... is the manual finished already? can i at least see the first-time installation tutorial? ??? seriously, coz I do everything the readme says but still I can't install it :'(

Btw, I LOVE yabbse... and I'd love to be able to install it in my web site (I'l promote it everywhere I swear :D) but please help me install it first!

Also, Geocities dosen't let me upload *.php files... do I have to actually have my own server to install this?

I know! I'm such a newbie!
Title: Re:Where the Heck is the Manual for this thingymawhatsit?
Post by: Greg Robson on April 16, 2002, 03:10:04 PM
There is an installation tutorial contained in the ZIP files (if I remember correctly),

You don't need your own server - just one that supports PHP and MySQL - tripod do, as well as some others.

If you want more help - post in the Installer Help forum - you're more likely to get a reply.

We're working on the manual - but the coders also write the manual - we're quite busy! :)

... and I need a question answer.

How do I login as the admin and where do I get the default admin logins?

I see nothing in the mysql db for admin logins.  I am missing something?

When you install your board it has you set up an admin account.  You should post this in a help board though.  You will get more help that way.  :P

I have one and if this is the wrong spot sorry. I keep trying to admin the board and two features give me errors when I try and do it. The first is in the Forum Preferences and Settings and I get the error "2: Wrong parameter count for fopen()
(/users/ionichost.com/zivux/yabbse/Sources/Admin.php ln 1442)" and it's almost the same the second is in Edit Your Forum Template and the error is "2: fopen("./template.php","w") - Permission denied
(/users/ionichost.com/zivux/yabbse/Sources/Admin.php ln 811)" I have been trying to figure out the problem but have not been able to please help. thanks.

In lieu of the manual, can anyone say if it is possible for me as administrator to allow users to post new topics.  Need helpl ASAP.

Post by: andrea on March 19, 2003, 01:57:06 PM
You control if users can make new posts by making the board to an "announcement" board. If "announcement" board only admins and global mods can open new thread, others can reply only.

There is a FAQ thread devoted to this.

Post by: lbyard on May 14, 2003, 05:05:47 PM
maybe try the 'readme'

the 1.5.1/2 readme...

"Getting Started

Is your host/server running up-to-date versions of PHP and MySQL?

Download http://www.yabbse.org/manual/phpinfo.zip, unzip the package and upload the file phpinfo.php to your host. Open your browser and in your address bar type: eg. 'http://www.mysite.com/phpinfo.php' Your hosts PHP version is right at the top of the page, and mySQL version (if installed) is half way down."

Where the Heck is the Manual for this thingymawhatsit?  Nevermind, I'll use phpMySQ or one of those "hidden" commands on that RH Linux box.  Larry

A compiled list of FAQs from this board with Q & A format
That is all that is needed so far.
Nooooooo. This website is like a Factory office. I came in and looked for the Product tab, like in a *Store*. (Not there.) So I clicked on the lovely cube-box image to see the Features list of YABBse. (No go.) I saw the comment "Trust me, and don't compare" in another thread. (Sorry, that doesn't sell.) So I read the FAQs (No overview there.) Then I looked for the manual to read the Overview chapter. (No manual, and the plan for it as quoted includes no overview/features even.) I code other things, so I will have a little patience yet, especially since Douglas directed me to this product. (I'll not run off clutching my wallet and shopping list just yet.) Or maybe I got it all wrong? (Is this is just another generic thread-manager?) Anyone got the features pamphlet?
