    Sorry for the multiple posts but the error is back, but I've figured out what it is. It's whenever I enable the Wikinav, even if I have 0 or another value for the quicklinks. Here's the server log error:

    XenForo_Exception: Invalid model 'EWRcarta_Model_Lists'

    You need to have XenCarta installed to use that module.

    To show how easy it is to create modules for this mod... I have just created this "Recent Status Updates" module. This module will display the most recent status messages posted by your users...
    • Will only display status updates, not profile posts or comments
    • Will only display ONE status update per user, if a user has made the last 5 entries in the system, it will only take the most recent update, and then ignore the rest.
    Just upload StatusUpdates.php to /library/EWRporta/Modules/ and then import the module XML... thats it!

    This is much better.

    The only problems I can see are that there is no sub menu (which I know is more an issue with XF itself at the moment).

    And also the meta is missing from the source on the portal page. Not good for search engines.

    Just installed - many thanks.

    Have changed permissions for Admins to access in ACP, however whenever i go to /portal/modules as a logged in admin i get...


    You do not have permission to view this page or perform this action.

    Am i missing something here?? :)

    If you go to /portal though it does display the news tho....


    EDIT - Well not sure exactly what i did in the Admin CP, went in unchecked and re-checked the options, saved again, and i can seem to get in now - maybe one to watch!!!

    Nice work, I think we might be using this.

    Is there any easy way to display an attachment from the first post instead of the member's avatar? :)

    Installed on a test site. The content extract doesn't appear.
    Could I add the the TaigaChat Ajax-Shoutbox above the forum list?

    Thank you.

    Thanks Jaxel, I've installed as test for now, this is great work :)

    One question that has been placed already in the old portal thread, don't the blocks/modules take into account usergroups permissions for their content? For example in my latest threads block I can see as guest threads that I don't have access to (from private forums for example). Am I missing something or is this going to be fixed in later stage? :)

    I dont have private forums on my test site... but I think I ahve this fixed... please test and tell me your results:

    in "EWRporta_Model_Threads" find:
    			'postCountUserId' => $visitor['user_id'],
    add below:
    			'permissionCombinationId' => $visitor['user_id'],

    In addition to our question about about the permissions, I have a couple of additional questions....

    Can you make an option to allow more than one forum to select your 'news' from?
    Can we have attachments display as a featured image in the post?
    And finally, can we move the latest threads to the sidebar rather than having it above the 'news' articles/posts?

    Added that to the site and it still displays private forum posts in the latest threads at the top. Any other suggestions?

    This might be a dumb question.... I have a custom XenForo theme. I really would love to use the portal its perfect for what I need but will this work with a custom template or does it have to be the default ? Cheers.

    It will / should work... The only thing is if it has template edits (I don't think so...), you'll have to adapt them.

    ddmmh, they will work with custom styles.

    Our test install is working with our new style at TeeVeeTown.
