Good Afternoon all. I'm kind of a newbie.
This is my first attempt at installing a module. I'm attempting to install the Forum module onto an "out-of-the-box" Yii installation. I followed the instructions to download and modify files. I got Forum to open initially, but then ran into some problems. I've read this forum and have implemented some of the suggested fixes - thank you all. The error I'm getting right now is:
Property "CWebUser.isAdmin" is not defined.
I have added the line:
$this->setState('isAdmin', ($this->name == 'admin'));
in the UserIdentity.php file
This shows up when I just try to access the Forum. Any thoughts? Any help or directions would be appreciated.
Thanks so much - Mike K
Good afternoon (again).
I had to put this issue aside for a bit. I was finally able to revisit installing the extension this past weekend.
I went through the exercise again and I'm not experiencing the problem any more.
I subsequently tried to add the extension to an existing app and the module seems to continue to behave as expected.
One question now is that the existing app uses a theme. The theme does not carry over into the extensions widget views. MIght there be a way to apply that gobally or do I have to modify each view?
Thank you to all for the responses!
