Description: News Management & Portal System Lite (NMAPS) is a portal system that is completely based on news without the use of forums. Instead each news story/review story is stored in the database under its own tables. I have seen many requests for news management system and I decided to create NMAPS, then Bree took it to the next stage with v2 with all the changes and features.

The system will act as a portal or a second frontend for your site. It has many features that I'm sure everyone will enjoy.

Review: Meet the Geeks review of NMAPS

Installation:
Plugins: 4
File Uploads: 16
Files to Import: 1
Directories to Upload: 7

REQUIREMENTS: At least 3.7.1 or later
PHP 5 or later

Support will be given in this thread.

Enjoy and I hope to get suggestions for 2.1

NOTE: If you like this mod, please click INSTALL, it goes a long way with me.

FAQ:
  1. How do I edit the navigation links?
    • Go to your AdminCP > Styles & Templates > Style Manager > Edit Templates > Find NMAPS Templates in the list of templates > Edit nmaps_mod_nav
  2. What version of PHP/MySQL is required to use this mod?
    • Unfortunately this mod requires PHP5 or later as well as MySQL5 or later.
  3. What does Pro version have that Lite doesn't?
    • Pro has many features that Lite doesn't, right now there is no full demo of Pro and if you wish to be notified when a demo is available please PM me.
  4. When is the next version of NMAPS due to be released?
    • I try not to give an exact date as errors, sql fixes, etc could cause dates to be changed therefore I try to give more of a week or 2 weeks as I usually give an exceptional amount of time to allow for fixes and such.
  5. My editor isn't showing up when I try to add a new article, what is wrong?
    • Go to AdminCP > vBulletin Options > Message Posting Interface Options then Enable Standard & WYSIWYG Controls under Full Editor. Once done, you must reimport the product with overwrite set to 'Yes' once complete the editor will show up when adding a new article.
  6. I receive this error when accessing /admincp/ "Warning: require_once(/includes/adminfunctions_template.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in [path]/admincp/nmaps.php on line 22

    Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/includes/adminfunctions_template.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php')"
    • Download the file from Post #378, upload to your /admincp/ directory overwriting the existing file.
  7. Admincp and index still showing incorrectly or not at all.

Extra Notes: If you wish to translate NMAPS then I ask you translate and email me the language xml file so that I can properly get it added to the mod pack.

Languages Being Translated to:
* Chinese
* German

NOTE: I have removed the nmaps zip file until I have released the new version. Countdown till new version is at 3 days 12 hours.

schlottkej: Please do not assume there are tons of issues with my mod, this mod requires a certain version of vbulletin, hence the reason for your back end dying. Since you did not read my original release post from top to bottom, I specifically ask that you provide specific information when reporting an error so that I can better assist you with those errors. If your using this mod on your wrestling site then you need to upgrade to vBulletin 3.7.1 as this mod will not work with a release candidate or beta of vBulletin 3.7

dodgeuk19 & silver_surfer:
1st: What version of vBulletin you using? I need to analyze this further before I start a process of fixing the issue.

2nd: The links are housed in a template, just go to nmaps_member_menu

3rd: Yes I forgot to include the auto trim part, I will have that done and released by this weekend.

4th: You need to make yourself a reporter first.

5th: oops, forgot I changed it prior to release, I will have that updated along with the other issues found.

6th: Right now our features for Pro is beyond Lite, way beyond. Currently we are waiting for Lite to go out of Beta before we plow into getting Pro completed. The price of Pro is unknown at this moment and I do not want to mention anymore on it here as I don't want to get into trouble for advertising Pro, just visit my website in my signature if you wish to know more about Pro.

ninjamaster: What trigon said, again. LOL

dodgeuk19: The avatar issue is this, it only picks up avatars that the user has chosen from your avatar gallery. Now I might have to add a setting for image path of avatars but hopefully not.

Looks great man.
I ran the install, no errors, or problems.
2 things though.
1) The file the README says to delete, doesnt exsist.
2) When I try to go to the portal page, I get a vB error.

" *****, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

1. Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
2. If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation. "

Any clue why it would be like that?

Rocc: Look closely, it hides very well

ninjamaster: No there is no file you need to edit. Are you using a .co.uk domain, if so make sure you have the .co.uk in there. Check to make sure you don't have mydomain.uk/admincp/nmaps_install.php if so you, delete and reupload nmaps_install.php to forum/admincp/

MaTTiMuS, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:
