I was always happy with this newsletter in nuke 7.8 but I just switched to nuke platinum. cuz of security and when I run the table installer this is what I get.

ERROR IN MODULE: HTML_Newsletter

ERROR MSG: Sorry, ONLY super admins may run this script


and when I log into admin and click on the admin newsletter link this is what I get

ENCOUNTERED ERROR IN SQL: Table 'parac2_paranormalpalace.nuke_hnl_cfg' doesn't exist

SQL = SELECT * FROM `nuke_hnl_cfg`

ERROR IN MODULE: HTML_Newsletter

ERROR MSG: Failed to get module configuration information

Can anyone help me?

You have to be logged in as admin before you run the database table installer. In the first example you gave, you were not logged in as admin. After you logged in as admin, you tried to access the newsletter admin tool, but you hadn't completed the database install yet.

While you are logged in as admin, point your browser to the mshnlinst.php script per the installation instructions. Without tables, nothing will work. Wink

My apologies I must not have explained myself clearly. I was definately logged in as admin the whole time. Believe me I know this to be a fact beyond a shadow of a doubt. the truth is I had been logged in all morning and day still logged in I open my admin at 6 am and don't log out til 9 pm.

Oh, I see. So, what version of PHP-Nuke is Nuke Platinum that you are running? If its under 7.5 then there are additional files which must be uploaded.

I had another thought, make sure you are using the absolute latest 01.03.01 full download from the site here.

BTW, I split this thread out from the other one. zzb doesn't need to get an email everytime we post. Wink

Also, please keep in mind that in the other thread there are other issues as well with using this on Nuke Platinum.

Well, this works fine in regular 7.6, so maybe they have changed the way super admin is determined or maybe they are not up-to-date on the Chatserv patches.

Please provide a link to where you downloaded this NP version and when I get time, I'll take a look.

Regarding this question here:

Those are always at the top of the forums here. Same forum, just different topic.

You know I think your on too somethink here because when reinstalling another module it came with instructions for radmin how to create in the database under nuke auther .but still I done that already for the other module and since it was a change to the nuke_authors tables I would thing it would work on all subsiquent modules. Nuke platinums claims to come with all the lates patches including the chat. the sites url is http://www.paranormalpalace.com Thank you.

Are you a SuperUser admin on that site? I would think so. Please post the structure of your nuke_authors table.

I can provide you a way around this for the table installer but am concerned that you will be unable to use the admin functions if we do not figure this out here at installer time.

By the way, I work during the day, so my early mornings are when I am most active on the boards...

Yes I am super admin of the site, since I modified nuke_authors to make that other module work, I went ahead and compared the original to the modified and noticed big difference at the end i'm posting both here.
I don't know if your stilll on or not but i'm going to drop the modified nuke_authors and reinstall the original and see if that works and post my results, for you too see you next trip too the board. thanks.


Original

CREATE TABLE nuke_authors (
aid varchar(25) NOT NULL,
name varchar(50),
url varchar(255) NOT NULL,
email varchar(255) NOT NULL,
pwd varchar(40),
counter int(11) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL,
radminsuper tinyint(1) DEFAULT '1' NOT NULL,
admlanguage varchar(30) NOT NULL,
radminblocker tinyint(2) DEFAULT '0' NOT NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (aid),
KEY aid (aid)
);




Modified


CREATE TABLE nuke_authors (
aid varchar(25) NOT NULL,
name varchar(50),
url varchar(255) NOT NULL,

Ok I deleted the modiified nuke_authors and reinstalled the original and recreated the superadmin and logged in and from the admin panel I deleted admin.php from the end of my url and replaced it with mshnlinst.php and hit go and still the same error.

Very odd... try this.

=== OPEN ===

mshnlinst.php

=== AFTER ===

require_once('mainfile.php');

=== ADD ===

global $admin;

I see nothing wrong with the structure of either table (thanks for posting) and so am now going to have to start debugging why this script is not working within your environment.

BTW, you posted a link to YOUR site and not to where you downloaded the Nuke Platinum distro that you are running. I'd like to take a look at their code...

Hmm, accroding to the Platinum files, there has been no update to Platinum since the end of 2004 which was around the same time that the project died.
Platinum is using forum version 2.0.11 and the current version is about 2.0.21 so I'd guess that it might be a lack of compatibility with Chatserv's Patches which are required for HTML Newsletter to work.

You say you swtiched to Platinum for security? In that case I'd swtich to Raven Nuke as it is the most secure publicly available 'nuke' (and has HTML Newsletter included).
