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.

* Modules
* Chief Reporter Option
* Cover Story

* User Perms
* Phrased

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.

Fix

This should fix the issue, this is untested but I'm sure it will fix the issue.

BTW, that is not a missing table error, that is a syntax error on install.

Eek, ok I'll have to completely redo the install code.

This has only been tested on 3.7 Beta 5, if anyone wish to install and test on other versions after the fixes then great.

Looks interesting. I see alot of potential here.
Thanks for sharing this. (I have not tried to install yet..hence not clicked installed)

I have a few q's:
  1. Can we see an actual working demo? (screenshots are never enough for me..lol.)
  2. Is there a pro version? (since this says lite..if so, what's the difference?)
  3. Can we move forum threads to this system? (you say the news is stored in it's own table)
  4. Can people search articles using vb's search functionality? Or is it a separate search?
  5. Is this similar to vbcover? (I ask because I like vbcover but will never buy since it's encrypted)

It would be great if the users were able to comment on news in the forum (a thread is automatically generated and on the button of the news page is a link to it )

I will be opening up NMAPS on my live site very soon... will send the link once that is done... Me and Chief Reporter are still getting our thoughts together on how we want this to work on our site =0)

The Pro version is in the works... NMAPS Lite was built first and once it's outta Beta, the Pro version will be in heavy development... Pro offers many more features such as Commenting System.. Reporter Applications... Advanced Category Permissions, just to name a few...

No at this point, can't move forum threads into this system... Good idea tho! Will talk to Steve about adding this feature =0)

And I have no clue what vbcover is so I can't answer that question *blush*

Commenting capabilities will be introduced with the Pro version *coming soon*


Now to go look at Steve's install code..........
