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.

MaTTiMuS, 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.
go to usergroups and set permisions

MTG: Exactly, I am anxious to get Pro done.

Loco: Not only that but this system is a straight news/story system. vBA has a wide range of 'systems' from news, to latest threads, etc. I suggest vBA to those who want more than news/stories but for those wanting news/stories then I suggest going for NMAPS.

Well I went to uninstall this script.. it seemed to unistall fine when using the install.php, but when you want to remove the Nmaps from the plugins in vbulliten there is no choice to remove the plugin, So now my admin panel shows that I have this Nmaps thing that is not installed.

Please fix or advise how to remove

Yes, of course. When it's running without the bugs of course(http://www.myspacepros.com/forum/articles.php). Here are the ones I've found so far:

  • bb code is not translated at all, nor are line breaks. It's as if you're pulling directly from the database to display the news rather through the post displaying function.
  • During install several of the phrases weren't installed. I had to create them manually. Phrases such as $vbphrase[nmaps_edit_story], $vbphrase[nmaps_move_story], etc.
  • The filename nmaps.php is hardcoded in nmaps_pg_news_add and nmaps_pg_news_edit in two places (in each template).
  • If there is no right and/or left column the table is still drawn with 3 columns, leaving the spacing off on the right and/or left side.
  • There are phrases that are hard-coded in nmaps.php such as the ones for the breadcrumbs that need to be made into phrases.

I've fixed these errors in my copy for the most part except for the bbcode issue. I'll begin looking into that now though.

Give me a full list of phrases missing so I can add them. Now thats what I call bug reporting, ty Greg for being so thorough. I will try to get all of those fixed in this copy tomorrow. The bbcode isn't translated as the text box doesn't have bbcode enabled.

All the phrases for the admin select menu are missing.

As for the bbcode not being enabled, why isn't it?

Never figured bbcode would be used in news, but since it will be used then I will make sure its enabled.

Phrases for admin select menu should not be missing. Those were the first phrases to be done.
