|Step 1 - Admin CP Modifications|
|Go to your Style Manager under "Styles & Templates" in your Admin CP. Choose to modify All Style Options. On this page, you will see a section for "Image Paths". Here you must change the path for each image directory (Title Image, Button Images Folder, Miscellaneous Images Folder, etc) to the full path (ex - /forum/images or http://yoursite.com/forum/images). |
You must do this for each of your styles, otherwise your images will not show up!
|Step 2 - Template Modifications|
|You should still be in your Admin CP at this point. Go to your Style Manager again under the "Styles & Templates" section of your Admin CP. Click on the "» «" button to expand the templates for that style. Once the templates are expanded, you will see a group called "Calendar Templates". Open the templates.txt file which was included in the zip file. Make the changes to each template that is listed there. Simply copy the content listed under each template name and replace the current content with that for each template.|
|Step 3 - File Modifications|
|In your /forum/global.php file: (3 Changes)
|In your /forum/admincp/index.php file:|
|In your /forum/includes/adminfunctions_template.php file:|
|In your /forum/includes/functions_calendar.php file:|
|In your /forum/includes/functions.php:|
|In your cmps_index.php file:|
Now open your cmps_index.php file in this folder and find:
Replace this with the full path to your forum on your server.
Not sure what this means?
Note: If you are installing this script in the same directory as your forums then you may simply comment out this line.
|Step 4 - Upload Files|
|Upload the new vBadvanced CMPS files and your modified vBulletin files to the directories listed below. |
root folder - cmps_index.php (you will probably rename this file to index.php once everything is set up)
root/forums - global.php
root/forums/admincp - index.php, vbacmps_install.php, vba_cmps_admin.php
root/forums/includes - functions_calendar.php, functions.php, adminfunctions_template.php, vba_cmps_include_top.php, vba_cmps_include_bottom.php
root/forums/images/misc - noavatar.gif
root/forums/modules - Upload this folder and all of it's contents
|Step 5 - Run the Install Script|
|Now you're almost done! It's time to add the vBadvanced CMPS settings and templates. Run the install script from your browser by going to http://yoursite.com/forum/admincp/vbacmps_install.php. |
This script will make all necessary changes to your database and install the templates, phrases, settings, and etc for you. Once the script is done go to your Admin CP and you will see a new group of options called "vBadvanced CMPS". That is where you will modify the settings, add/edit modules, and add/edit new pages.
