Cannot access settings in ACP

Post by keesh7663 »

Your Portal Version: 2.1.0
Your phpBB Type: Standard phpBB3
MODs installed: No
Your knowledge: Advanced Knowledge
Boardlink: http://tdc.ddocrafting.info

PHP Version: 5.4.43
MySQL Version: 5.5.42-37.1

What have you done before the problem was there?
Nothing. I installed portal 2.1.0 according to the instructions provided on the phpbb website for phpbb 3.1.x.

What have you already tryed to solve the problem?
So I have scoured the phpbb forums here trying to find an answer and came up empty handed. I have installed portal v 2.1.0 on phpbb 3.1.6. I can view the portal just fine on my site but have tried everything I can to access the settings.

I looked in the Extensions tab of the ACP (not there), cleared browser cache, purged forum cache both more times than I can think. Disabled every other extension thinking maybe there is a conflict, no luck. Uninstalled every other extension thinking there might be a conflict, no dice.

So I reinstalled everything and put everything back to normal (portal still doesn't show me settings). I checked my ACP from both phone and tablet (used mobile data to avoid same ip trying to access it), no luck.

I like the concept of the portal and really want it on my site, but I also want to be able to have control over it. If I can't get this issue fixed I will uninstall until it is fixed.

I am a native php programmer as well, but really don't want to have to learn the inner workings of phpbb 3.1 and/or the portal's code and dive in and manually fix it to get this working. I have a busy enough schedule as it is.

Will repost this on the extension designer's website as well as on GitHub.

Check if you have the permission "Can alter Portal settings"

I'm an idiot. I totally overlooked admin specific permissions. That's what I get, I suppose, for doing things at 2am. Thanks for the help!
