Loading Extensions

edited November 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I got a little help getting Vanilla set up on MacDoc. I am now doing the admin set up of features, and figuring out how best to display the page(s) on my web site. I am a little shaky on how to use extensions. I want a Theme/Style, Jazzman's by the same name matches up pretty well and there are several other types of extensions/addons that will help too. Is it smarter to add these one at a time? I imagine that some extensions do not play well together, especially if they work with the same features. I see the extensions folder, currently empty, in the Vanilla folder (using Cyberduck). Do I just put the entire extension folder in or move each file over or what? Then I believe I have to select it from the Admin set up and turn it on?

    You're pretty much right with everything you guess.

    Thanks again Minisweeper. I uploaded the Jazzman folder to Vanilla folder>extensions but it does not show up as a Theme option nor has the theme changed. I tried removing all the files from the folder, placing them in the folder as individual files, no luck there. Is Jazzman a theme or style that needs to be place somewhere else in Vanilla? Jazzman seems to show up in multiple sections within the Vanilla extensions catagories.

    You need to install themes into the /themes/ directory and choose them under the themes and styles page in the admin settings, not as an extension. Jazzman is a coder but I believe he has a self-titled theme?

    I put the jazzman folder in Themes and went to load it. It was there, yeeeea! Unfortunately I got the following error: Some problems were encountered Failed to open the styles directory. Please ensure that PHP has read access to the /Volumes/DATA/rwsites/ directory.

    Have you checked the read access? And made sure the styles directory exists and has useful looking contents?

    I got it to work in the themes folder. I think maybe I just hit a wrong button the first time. The forum is now up on my site with the Jazzmzn theme. It is inside a Rapid Weaver iFrame with a home link in the footer to get the user back to the other web pages.
