Re: Newbb and Xoops, fresh install, first time user
I see and I agree with you, im not a programmer either. I'm glad I read this because I was about to uninstall xoops. Ill take a look at this zip file you have, I cant even see a blank field to enter in a forum name right now lol. I hope I can get something until the official fix. Ill keep an eye out for your post.
First of all, you need to uninstall your current NewBB module and delete the entire module from your /public_html/modules folder. Make sure you uninstall it from Xoops first otherwise you could end up with a mess in your database.
The first download is for the latest NewBB module (NewBB 4.33 RC13)and the second is for the xBootstrap templates. Half of the templates are missing, but if you use the xBootstrap theme with my templates the forum works well. The missing templates revert back to the modules templates which are not designed for a bootstrap theme and aren't device responsive but they still work
Why they released the xBootstrap theme with only half the NewBB templates I have no idea but it is what it is
Both of these zip files have the same name so save them in separate folders on your computer.
For the NewBB module
(NewBB 4.33 RC13), click HERE
. These files go in /public_html/modules/
For my modified NewBB xBootstrap templates
. These files go in /public_html/themes/xbootstrap/modules/. Replace all files in this directory. These templates will override the templates that come standard in the NewBB module to make your forum device responsive. They look really nice.
Another option for you is you may also want to try using the default xoops theme. I have not tested this so no idea if NewBB will work with the default templates. The default template is not boostrap and is not device responsive, although, you may not need your forum to be responsive.
