That error usually shows up for the older flash games.
Recent versions of browsers require you to allow flash as both a main setting and also a per site basis.
I know that Chrome has a main setting that needs to be enabled and then when you try to play a game it will ask you to allow it on the top-left of the window.
Whatever browser you are using will have something similar.
You likely allowed flash for this site at some point and as long as you don't clear the browser history, it will remember the allowance for this site.

SMF Arcade Support + Plugins / Re: Arcade Enabled

The available stable version has some issues where most have been fixed for the upcoming release.
There isn't much left on the list of pending changes/fixes so it should be available in the not so distant future.

I tested the mod on SMF 2.0.15 and SMF 2.0.17 whereas there are no issues with the installer.
You must have some modification installed that altered code in that file.
I suggest you uninstall any bbcode modification prior to installing SMF patches and/or this modification.



This mod has been updated yet again.
Please refer to this thread for version 1.6:

SMF 2.0 - Enable PHP7.2+ Compatibility version 1.5
Version 1.6 released February 25/2020.

Copyright 2020 ~ Chen Zhen @ web-develop.ca
Distributed under the GNU Lesser General Public License -> https://www.gnu.org/licenses/lgpl.html

This version includes a new copyright policy,fixes & omissions for SMF 2.0.17+ to facilitate proper PHP 7.2+ compatibility.

A new option has been implemented located in admin core features to enable/disable filtering "create_function" warnings.
SMF 2.0.17 default behavior is to strictly mute any "create_function()" deprecated warnings.
The purpose of this newer feature is for possibly debugging warnings created by other modifications although the default behavior can still be opted.




Note:
If you are updating SMF itself from version 2.0.15 to version 2.0.16 using available patches, you must first uninstall this modification tool.
After you have successfully upgraded to SMF 2.0.17 (without errors), you can then opt to install this modification (version 1.6 or better).
Failing to follow this procedure will cause both the SMF patches & this modification to be incapable of parsing your files properly.





Still pending:
Changes to ../Sources/Subs-Db-sqlite.php to replace sqlite_create_function with modern standard.
ie. PDO::sqliteCreateFunction or SQLite3::createFunction





Please uninstall and delete any previous versions prior to using this version.
Report any issues with this modification in this thread.

Enjoy.

You will not be able to install the SMF update patches with v1.4 of this mod without errors.

Make sure this mod is uninstalled, then update SMF with the patches.
After you are at SMF 2.0.17 then you can install v1.5 of this mod.

I will test it on SMF 2.0.15 later today. It should work but perhaps I made an error in the pkg info install file.

Why not update to SMF 2.0.17 ?

Thanks for the report.
Version 1.4 was deleted in error at some point.

Version 1.5 is now available which will work for SMF 2.0.17 (or a few versions previous to that).

EhPortal Support / Re: Portal for SMF 2.0.17
February 22, 2020, 12:32:32 pm
I did not read the topic properly nor notice the section and initially replied on my phone/mobile & missed that somehow.
Somehow I thought you were having trouble installing Simple Portal into SMF 2.0.17  :-[

Btw - Eh Portal is only for the SMF 2.1 branch
Simple Portal is for the SMF 2.0 branch.

You can not use EhPortal for SMF 2.0.17.
When you finally upgrade to the SMF 2.1 branch then you can switch to EhPortal which is a port of Simple Portal.
This means all the blocks and like settings from your older Simple Portal will remain.

Make sure you download it anew from the Simple Portal website & try again.
Do not use an older file on your computer or in your Packages directory.

Simple Portal will work for SMF 2.0.17

I just tested it on an installation of SMF 2.0.17 and there does not seem to be any issue.
It installs & uninstalls fine.

What is the problem you are having?

Version 2.3 is now available from the download link.
The mod will occasionally refresh the page during database changes to thwart PHP timeouts.

Also for the more thorough character conversion option it now only edits field columns that need editing and ignores those that don't need any changes.
14

I'll provide that after I finish the next update.

At the moment the download link only provides v2.0 because I discovered some issues with v2.2 that I am working on.

Large tables ie. messages for some forums which contains posts, needs the script to refresh the page and continue after X number of queries else PHP will time out. I am working on this so that it will work with a large amount of queries.

If their mixed collations are all utf8 or all utf8mb4 then it should work just fine.
I've not tested mixed iso & utf8 tables as of yet.

One can always make backups first and then try it out.
Another option is to first try the SMF built in function to convert to utf8.
After that, run this utility to convert all collations to utf8.
