Integrating Admin Pack Extras - JiminSA - 04-26-2012 10:13 AM
Not only am I new to this forum but also new to PHP and CMS. So may I be forgiven in advance for my naivety?
I have downloaded both the Admin Pack and the Extras and have uploaded then to my server along with a little front-end login and link routine.
However, I may well have messed up somewhere along the line because when I get to the entry page I get a couple of js alerts, complaining about the absence of the Extras package (unable to attach screen-shots - file upload repeatedly failed...).
Other than uploading the Extras Directory alongside the Admin Pack directory (maybe it should be inside?), I have done nothing.
Can anyone advise?

You are forgiven. Also, welcome!
Yeah, integrating Extras with Admin Pack isn't terribly obvious. How I generally install Extras is to first upload Admin Pack. You don't generally need Extras but it has a lot of nice, optional features (e.g. the jQuery UI date picker). So let's say you put everything in Admin Pack in '/admin/' on your web host. Inside Extras you'll find a 'support' directory. Upload the contents of that into the '/admin/support/' directory on your host. Then there is a random 'index_mobile.php' file in the root of Extras. That is just an example of how you might build an admin interface with support for mobile devices.
Let me know if this helps.

Thanks for such a timeous response!
I moved the directories and files as you recommended and everything is now hunkey-dorey!
I have another query, for which I will post a new thread...
