Portal not visible for guests

Post by Tibo » 7. August 2018 10:15

Hello,

I just installed Board3 on my forum:
https://www.golfgtiforum.nl/forumportal

Right now when I am logged in, I can see the portal.
When I am not logged in (guest), then the portal is not visible.

Is there any reason for this?

Thanks for your help.

Regards,

Tibo

Hi,
I have set the permissions correctly for all the groups and also for the user 'Anonymous'/guest.

Is this a bug?

What portal version do you have installed?
For 3.2.x there is a customized version: http://reyno41.bplaced.net/phpbb/viewto ... f=33&t=228

If I enter this address in the browser "https://www.golfgtiforum.nl/forumportal/app.php/portal" will be directed to the index page.
The permissions are not set correctly.
Go to "ACP -> General" --> purge cache
It's recommended to purge your browser cache too.

  1. Disable the extension
  2. Delete the extension’s data
  3. Delete the extension’s files from the filesystem
  4. Download this customized version for 3.2.x: http://reyno41.bplaced.net/phpbb/viewto ... f=33&t=228
  5. Unzip the extension and upload it to the ext/ directory of your phpBB board
  6. Enable the extension, here in the Extensions manager
  7. Go to "ACP -> General" --> purge cache
  8. It's recommended to purge your browser cache too
Your home link go to: "https://www.golfgtiforum.nl/forumportal/app.php" this is not correct.

Maybe another EXT will cause these problems.
Check if these changes are present in the files.
https://github.com/board3/Board3-Portal/pull/650/files
Install the portal extension on a test board and check if it works there.

The only other extension I have is Tapatalk.
All the changes are present in the files.
I will try it on a different board now...

Same problem on different board... this is driving me crazy.

edit: seems that disabling the tapatalk extension solves the problem.
Any solution to get tapatalk working with board3?
