Thanks.

I've attached two screenshots, both the ad and group are active. You can see that I've set the ad to show in four places, however it's only showing at the top of the forum, the first one.2019-09-21_1141.pngImage Enlarger2019-09-21_1142.pngImage Enlarger

Its hard to tell why that might be without more context.  Maybe post screen shots of your settings for the ad group and the ads?  That might provide a clue as to what might be going on.

Thanks.

I've got it working now, but I can't get the before/after topics to work. The only one I can get to work is Above All Forums, none of the others seem to go in. What could be the cause of preventing that? The forum is at https://www.raceadvisor.co.uk/forum

SP Community Support on can I get a copy of v.5? https://simple-press.com/support-forum/community-support-core-topics/can-i-get-a-copy-of-v-5/#p169594 Community Support: Core Topics https://simple-press.com/support-forum/community-support-core-topics/can-i-get-a-copy-of-v-5/#p169594 Hi:

Here is a link to the bitbucket repository:  https://bitbucket.org/simple-p.....r/commits/

Your developer can pull the 3.0.0 commits - that will likely give them what they need.

If they would like to contribute changes to this project they can submit a PR for review against that repository.

Thanks.

Simple Press on Embed Simple:Press https://simple-press.com/support-forum/community-support-theme-and-plugin-topics/embed-simplepress/#p169593 Community Support: Theme and Plugin Topics https://simple-press.com/support-forum/community-support-theme-and-plugin-topics/embed-simplepress/#p169593 hmmm....that's interesting. I just quickly activated the Avada theme on our test site and it looks as if the forum page displays without errors.  I didn't spend too much time poking around but a quick activation and perusal of the forum page didn't reveal any of those kinds of errors. Avada is a HUGE theme though - one that goes way way overboard with their options to try to be all things to all users.  So its possibly a particular combination of non-default options that's triggering the issues you're seeing.  

Also, bootstrap components are loaded with Avada and they're not loaded in the correct order so you might have to comment out that script - see this forum post: https://simple-press.com/suppo.....p169209. 

Thanks.

For the benefit of others in the future, I had a lot of errors using the Avada theme.

They were all related to page display, loosing formatting ect.

They all disappeared when I changed themes.

Adverts don't take short-codes. It takes text and HTML or a JS script.

I don't have JS code, only PHP code as an alternative. Can I not use a wordpress shortcode or PHP code in the plugin? If so I may need to return it as I don't think I'll be able to use it.

Import script can't find necessary function sp_create_member_data,  Any insights as to why can't script find this function?

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function sp_create_member_data() in /public_html/wp-content/plugins/sp-import/engine/spimport.php:435 Stack trace: #0 /public_html/wp-content/plugins/sp-import/engine/spimport.php(114): spi_create_user(Object(stdClass), Object(stdClass), Array, Array, false, Array) #1 /public_html/wp-content/plugins/sp-import/engine/spimport.php(49): spi_import_users('2', Object(stdClass), Object(stdClass), Array) #2 {main} thrown in /public_html/wp-content/plugins/sp-import/engine/spimport.php on line 435

Take a look at the Asgaros or bbPress importer - they pull data from multiple tables using the SELECT and WHERE items in the map arrays. 

There's a little bit of explanation in the CUSTOM VIEWS section at the bottom of this article that might help as well: https://simple-press.com/writi.....mplepress/

NorCal on Customized importer https://simple-press.com/support-forum/community-support-core-topics/customized-importer/#p169584 Community Support: Core Topics https://simple-press.com/support-forum/community-support-core-topics/customized-importer/#p169584 when I am customizing the importer and mapping the origin database to the sp database what do I do when the origin data for one SP table comes from two different tables from the origin db?  So for example the sfposts table "post_id" and "topic_id" come from one table but "poster_ip" comes from another?

would I do two separate select/where like this ?

$map['tables']->sfposts = true;
$map['sfposts']->table = 'origintable1';
$map['sfposts']->select = '';
$map['sfposts']->where = '';
$map['sfposts']->post_id = 'msgid';
$map['sfposts']->topic_id = 'threadid';

$map['tables']->sfposts = true;
$map['sfposts']->table = 'origintable2';
$map['sfposts']->select = '';
$map['sfposts']->where = '';
$map['sfposts']->poster_ip = 'ipaddress';

SP Community Support on Embed Simple:Press https://simple-press.com/support-forum/community-support-theme-and-plugin-topics/embed-simplepress/#p169583 Community Support: Theme and Plugin Topics https://simple-press.com/support-forum/community-support-theme-and-plugin-topics/embed-simplepress/#p169583 Hi:

The forum can only be displayed on the page designated in FORUM->INTEGRATION.  Simple:Press takes over the entire content area of that page.  This is similar to how popular plugins like WooCommerce works (The WooCommerce store will take over the entire content area of a page as well). 

In WordPress, the content area is the main area of the page.  There are other areas such as headers, footers and sidebars.  Your PAGE TEMPLATE control if and how these other areas show up on the page as well as the width of these areas.

Many themes provide more than one page template - for example themes might provide a full-width page template without sidebars and another that has side bars on both sides.  You can see your options directly on the page when you edit the pages directly from the WordPress PAGES list.

Sometimes, there is only one page template and you get options on the page or in the customizer that you can use to turn on/off the non-content areas. 

So, if you want to put the simple:press content into a 3/4 page container then your theme PAGE TEMPLATE must be 3/4 width for the main content area.  If you don't have one that has a 3/4 width for the content area then you'll need to get a developer to add that page template for you.

Thanks.
