Here are a few more examples of ways that TinyPortal Articles can be useful:

On my site we use an article for our Front Page;
And, Our Privacy Statement
Our custom 404 error page

And, one of my Favorite Poems

As for guides, this one may be helpful:

EDIT: ... to fix one of the links.

There's a few on my sites, under the heading, Articles.

There is much better examples out there I'm sure.  But the articles system is much more powerful than you think.  Pages can be used in much the same way as blocks, you can add content using php, html, bbc,

Once again: please check the docs site: this is built up using articles AND it holds howto's for all features of TinyPortal...

Should you find that information is missing there, please let us know, so we can add whatever is needed...

My site is using articles for the static information pages... see

That should give an idea of what it is...

I'd really like to understand the function and use of TP Articles?

Is there are guide / 'how to' for the articles function somewhere?

For example, when is an article used where aa forum post wouldn't be equally useful??

If someone has a forum I could look at that uses articles (accessible by guests) please point me to it so I can have a look.

What version of MySQL are you using? I would think that changing that line to 0 instead of a null on the default column would work.
Installation / Incorrect integer value: 'NULL' - TP 1.6.2
« Last post by moowalker on February 12, 2019, 05:21:40 AM »

I have a problem installing TP 1.6.2 at my forum. I have ugprade from 2.0.15 to 2.1RC1. Before upgrading I uninstall ALL addon including TP 1.6.1 (I had the previous version).

After the upgrade was done, I tried to install TP 1.6.2 but I go the following error:

Code: [Select]
Incorrect integer value: 'NULL' for column ``.``.`eventid` at row 1
File: /home/infinite/public_html/Packages/temp/install.php
Line: 379

I also made a github ticket ( in case it was needed.

Any ideas?

:hmm: I use SMF Hacks download manager (a great product) but for a new forum I figured I might just use that feature in TP - one less mod to worry about.

Unfortunately it seems that the process for setting up (and subsequently uploading files) using TinyPortal's built in downloads thingy is somewhat complex.

In fact even as admin I couldn't get any files to actually upload to the system.

Is there a step by step article / guide / video / anything to help make it clearer for me?

SMF version: SMF ver. 2.1 RC1 (nightly build from SMF site not github)
TP version: TP ver. 1.6.2
