Fireboard forums created, but link not working 10 Years, 3 Months ago Karma: 0
My environment:
CB 1.2 RC4
Fireboard 1.05 RC2
GroupJive 1.7 v0.29a

Have made all neccesary mods, and checked other posts for answers, need some help.

The Group Forum link takes me to the Forum, but not the specific group forum, just the main FB forum page.

I have setup the CB plugin with the correct ID and from the backend I can see the forums created under the hidded Forum.

Not using SEO links for CB or FB or GJ. Can anybody helP!

Thanks in advance!

I also have noted that the Integrate with Fireboard does not show in my components>groupjive>setting>integration section

1.) Go to Components > GroupJive > Settings
2.) select the Integration [tab]
3.) set "Integrate with Fireboard? > drop down to "Yes"
4.) click Save

There is no Integrate with FB choice.

Below are the choices listed:
================================================================

Bulletin Settings

Show Bulletinboard No Yes
Only Group Owners can write bulletin messages: No Yes
Display Number of Bulletin Messages per page (front-end view) :

Eventlist not found - settings disabled
=================================================================

It appears that what is happening is that the catid is not being entered in the url

index.php?option=com_kunena&func=showcat&catid=&Itemid=52

When I manually type in the catid for a forum, it goes to the correct forum and everything else works.

Any idea what is keeping the catid from being entered when clicking the link? The Itemid is entered correctly each time.

Thanks.

Hi drm5183,
The integrate with fireboard is in the cb_gjfireboard plugin which needs to be installed as a cb plugin. You can then go to: Components/community builder/plugin management, You then select the "GJ Fireboard" plugin where you then select: Integrate Fireboard into Groupjive --> Yes and enter the unpublised category number that you have set up for the Groupjive forums.

There seems to be a problem with version 29a not linking to the right forums you can read more about that in THIS THREAD. If You would like to try version 28g which seems to be linking correctly just send me an email: creator_moerfelden@arcor.de I will send you a copy to test.

Cheers

Hi Dave,

Thanks for the reply. I set up through the CB plugin, but thought maybe there was another setting I missed. I used 28g before upgrading to 29a with the same results. Can try again if you think that would help, I'll send you an email later today.

Everything else is working great, the link is the only issue.

Hi all (my first post here)
I have the links getting generated correctly on my test set up. It may not be pretty, but it works well, and maybe what I have found will speed things up for someone with a bit more experience than me.
First a disclaimer... I worked all night on the graveyard shift, then worked on this problem this morning and had a nap... Im feeling a bit goofy, so I hope this makes sense...


My Set up...

J 1.5.8 fresh on Localhost
CB 1.2 RC 4
FB 1.0.5RC2
GJ 1.7 v0.29a
FB Plugin 1.7d


So, after reading this thread completely http://www.groupjive.org/index.php?option=com_kunena&Itemid=45&func=view&catid=224&id=5712

I installed everything fresh with as few configuration changes as I could get away with. I did not do the hacks found in the outdated readme.txt. I added 2 categories with a couple groups in each to GJ. I added and published a category to FB. I installed and configured the CB plugin and activated it and the other CB-FB plugin. I clicked (update old groups) which built the forums under my catagory. This got me to the place where many others are. Most everything was working, but the Group Forum link was broken. It was simply not passing the catid in the url. I found that the link is generated in ... com_profiler\plugin\user\plug_gjfireboard\fireboard.php
starting on line 184. I chased around to try to find where the variables were set but found myself lost & frustrated 'till I noticed that the new FB forums are listed in database table _gj_jb. So I re-wrote the function getLink to grab the catid from the DB and pass it on the the link.

OK, so here is the new function. As I said, there is probably an easier/cleaner way to do this and the author will likely fix the original code as well, but this is working for me.
Code:


function getLink ( $groupInfo ) {
global $Itemid, $_CB_database, $_CB_framework;

$link = '';

if ($this->params->get('runfireboard')) {
$absolutepath = $_CB_framework->getCfg('absolute_path');

// check if Joomlaboard or Fireboard
if (file_exists($absolutepath.'/components/com_kunena/fireboard.php')) {
$forumpath ='com_kunena';
}
else {
$forumpath ='com_joomlaboard';
}
// braineater hack
$val = $_GET['groupid'];
$_CB_database->setQuery("SELECT category_id FROM #__gj_jb WHERE group_id=$val");
$cat_id = $_CB_database->loadResult();

$link = '<li><a href="'
. cbSef("index.php?option=".$forumpath."&"
. "func=showcat&catid=".$cat_id."&"
. "Itemid=$Itemid")
. '">'.GJ_GROUP_FORUM.'</a></li>';

}
return $link;
}



So at this point the links work. I then went to FB config and unpublished the parent category and did the com_kunena/template/default/fb_pathway.php hack as found in the readme.
Everything looks to be working well.
Now I hope someone figures out how to list the Latest Forum Topics...

Good Luck & Have Fun...
