Newbie - How to get addons to show on site

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Ive searched through this forum for some newbie type questions, but none of these questions answered my question... 
I added a lot of addons to my install, but I cannot see any of them when I visit my site. How do you get the addons live on the website?

I am not that  familiar with PHP, however I can figure it out if pointed in the right direction (i have done lots of edits on a PHP site through trial and error).

They need to be installed following the phpVMS folder structure. Many (not all) should then show under Add Ons in the admin panel - where you can possibly change some settings. Some of them have instructions on how to "call" them on the user side of your site. Some also come with a SQL file that needs to be installed into the database... AIRMail comes to mind.

If you list one or two that you want to use, maybe we can further assist you.

Hi. 
I installed phpVMS-ScheduleSearch (https://github.com/DavidJClark/phpVMS-ScheduleSearch) manually. The readme says: Point your browser to mysite/index.php/FrontSchedules and start searching. So that works (test.americanva.org/index.php/FrontSchedules), but doesnt show on the user side. Im sure I need to add the link to a php page, but not sure which one or where. Sigh, this is beginning to be a huge undertaking.

Yes, you need to add it to an existing page or provide a link in the menu to possibly replace the default search. This link may provide an updated "Front Schedules" file: https://github.com/web541/phpVMS-ScheduleSearch

Yeah - it is just beginning for you to be a huge undertaking.... many of us have been at it for years and are still tweaking here and there.... it can get to be addicting.

Happy tweaking!!!
