Technical Support section suggestion

Recommended Posts

G'day Tarun,

I finally stumbled across your PC Maintenance page :hug: and :P to a very nice layout and easy to follow steps.

Just a quick suggestion, under 'Technical Support' it might be a good idea to post a link (make it a 'Sticky') to the page as not everyone reads the frontpage of the site, nor do a lot of people read 'The Rules' till later on.

This way by putting it in as a 'sticky' people will find it a lot sooner and you'll save yourself time and hassle by directing them there, before they start asking nebulous questions about what they should be doing.

Cheers :P

:P

Was only a suggestion anyways, I'm not going to lose any sleep over it as we all seem to be able to steer new folk in the right direction when it comes to helping someone. :hug:

Cheers :P

BLAHHH.

Don't mind me, I'm just quietly going senile here. :P

Finally realised where the link was actually pointing to. :hug:

Might want to send this thread into the aether........... :P

Cheers :P

Hmmm, had a read of the 'Tutorial' and it seems straight forward for a bare-bones module, that is, no formatting, no layout, no CSS, etc.

Not knowing how MKPortal is structured I'm afraid I can't help with this one :( as I'm only familiar with phpNuke portal formatting and module creation.

Sooooo, I'll handball this one off to someone else who might have a better knowledge of MKPortal than I.

Cheers :angry:

Above is the part where you need to find where the CSS is located within your directory structure and reference back to it.

Be aware, that is a partially educated guess on my part as after having looked at all the code, it in no way resembles how phpNuke is written.

In fact, from what I've seen this portal is a mixture of html and php therefore not making it easy for me to see what should go where.

Might want to give it a try and see what happens, and I'll borrow your disclaimer for it if it turns its toes up :dunce:

Cheers :angry:
