phpNewsManager and phpWebMagazine don´t work together!

The recommended installation of NewsManager seems to be one directory deeper than WebMagazine in a directory named ´newman´.

WebMagazine has problems if it is not installed in the same directory as WebMagazine. Images that can be previewed while making an article in NewsManager can´t be seen when looking at the same article in WebMagazine.

In WebMagazine paths to items such as subscribe.php are incorrect.

Install both NewsManager and WebMagazine in the same directory and you can´t access NewsManager.

Change the paths on setup and there are even more problems. It seems NewsManager and WebMagazine really need to exist in the same directory.

Why aren´t these programs packaged as one system that is ready to run after on installation?

phpNewsManager and phpWebMagazine should work Happy All you have to do in phpWebMagazine is to correct path where appears. And if you write in paths like ./ then of course won´t work Happy You have to use full paths.

Or use second solution copy into phpWebMagazine folder and edit path as should be.

They´re seperated project Happy

arun: your problem is that you havent write right information (username, password or database name) into your (or during install). Check also if you setup permission to 666 during installation, otherwise will be empty.

I have installed
phpNewsManager Version: 1.45
phpWebMagazine Version: 1.10

both are working good, but when i add a partner with picture, it wont show up at the left on the main window. Also the link isn´t correct. It referrer to jump.php which doesn´t exist!

This problem is found also in the demo! OhWell

Take a look at the add at bottom left here: [LINK]

Here it is correct, but i can´t get it to work with my webmag Sad

correct: index.php?action=jump&id=
incorrect: jump.php?id=

But i don´t think i have a function named jump!

Any ideas??

I posted earlier, in the wrong place it seems...sorry...further to that post (thing about install.php not going thru and just appearing to refresh the page) it because you *have* to use a dbase called "newman" ? I have to use my username as my dbase name on my host´s mysql server. That´s the only thing I can come up with that would be screwing this up for me

Hia, thanks for developing this nice application!
I am running the newman 1.45 and have the problem that when trying to pass
articles from the ´public news´ area to the news I get "myError1" on that page
with no result... The installation proceeded without failures and was made according
to the instructions (div. chmods). Also the newman-MySQL-database seems fine.
Help is very appreciated - thanks in advance!

gRAVE: Thanks a lot! It must be the line >> mysql_query("INSERT INTO ".$GLOBALS[´db_news´]." ... << which is in the submitNews-section of pnews.php. Yes, I know that you know where to look for it :-). I already (unsucessfully) tried to omitt some variables...

I can log in without registering. Just fill in a username and a password and you can reply on messages.

Anybody an idea?

I have gone through the installation process and ensured all the relevant files have the correct permissions. When I get to the final page it comes with a message saying install succesfully (or something along those lines) Then it lists what is below::::

Creating Tables:
admin ...No Database Selected
groups...No Database Selected
news_comments...No Database Selected
news_logged...No Database Selected
partners...No Database Selected
pnews...No Database Selected
story...No Database Selected

weekQ...No Database Selected
rss...No Database Selected

gallery...No Database Selected
weather...Filling Data into Tables:
..No Database Selected................................................

Everything seems to go OK it just does not seem to create the database! Any ideas????

kreLLedk: use full paths not ./xxx/xxx

because webmagazine and newman are in different path and this cause a problem if you use . in paths
