No Extension Management?

I'v manually installed the extensions I want to use, but when I goto settings I dont see the Extensions Management on the left side under Administrative Options. I think it might have to do with me deleting the Super Admin (or whatever) Role. Anything I can do? Thanks.


  • What do you mean by 'installed manually' and 'extensions management'?
  • Installed Manually: I downloaded, extracted and uploaded the extensions to my site ftp. Extensions Manager: I read this: "you can enable the extension through the "Manage Extensions" form on the settings tab in Vanilla" I meant Manage Extensions, not Extensions Manager, sorry.
  • Go in setting -> Roles et permissions, select your role and check that you have the Role ability "extension" selected.

    I went into the Role Management for the Admin, and it doesnt have anything that says "extension". All I see is: Sign-in ability Add comments to discussions Start a new discussion Html allowed in comments Can see IP addresses Administrative priviledges for users & roles Administrative priviledges for discussions & categories Make ALL whispers visible
  • Roles & Permissions The "Extensions" checkbox is down near the bottom.
  • Is this an old version of Vanilla?

    //edit Ok sorry for being a noob. I'v figured it all out now. Ill come back if i have more problems. Thanks
  • The latest version is v1.0. Might be time for an upgrade. The new extensions probably won't work with the old version anyways.

    I'v updated to Vanilla 1 and everything is fine except the Poll extension and BBInsertBar. For some reason i can't add Polls. Though I did permit myself. Also, Does BBInsertBar work with BetterBBCode?
  • The polls thing I know nothing about.
    But, yes - the BBInsertBar works with BetterBBCode. If you are having trouble with it not working there are 2 things you can do:

    1) Upgrade to the most current version of BBInsertBar. (a few bugfixes)
    2) If you already have and its still not working, then uninstall the BBInsertBar extension and the BetterBBCode extension. And reinstall in this order - First BetterBBCode and then BBInsertBar.

    That might help.

    I'v finally got the BBInsertbar working, which is awesome, Thank you. I also got the Poll installed and enabled, though there is an error when I try to view a poll I have made. At the top of my forum it says "zero" and it says this on the forum: Some problems were encountered The requested discussion could not be found. Any clue? //Edit I'v figured my way around the Poll bugs, Im guessing they are bugs. Though, now I guess I found new bugs. I tried to actaully use the InsertBar for the first time and I was trying to underline some text, but it didn't work. Then I refreshed the page and all of the sudden the whole bar disappeared. Any ideas?
