Quote from: @rjen on August 20, 2021, 07:10:01 AMWhen TP is first installed the panels will be active and a number of blocks are created that are visible to all users.The first thing you need to do is go to the panel settings and deactivate the panels you don't need: they will immediately disappear for all users. Then you can go through the blocks access screen: each block has a permission setting where you can indicate which groups may see it: untick them all except the administrator.Then, when you are creating new blocks or articles, first make them available only to admins, so you can test. When you are happy you the change the permissions for the articles and or blocks (whatever you choose to use) and they are visible to all...

QuoteAlthough the package was downloaded to the server it appears to be empty. Please check the Packages directory, and the "temp" sub-directory are both writable. If you continue to experience this problem you should try extracting the package on your PC and uploading the extracted files into a subdirectory in your Packages directory and try again. For example, if the package was called shout.tar.gz you should:1) Download the package to your local PC and extract it into files.2) Using an FTP client create a new directory in your "Packages" folder, in this example you may call it "shout".3) Upload all the files from the extracted package to this directory.4) Go back to the package manager browse page and the package will be automatically found by SMF.

Quote from: lurkalot on August 20, 2021, 07:59:30 AMWhen it comes to setting up first time, I do things slightly differently to how @rjen described above. I leave my panels active, but turn all blocks off that I don't need, and the ones I wan't to keep I set them to only show where I need them.
