Try it just on index page. I think that looks best but added the option for forum display too.

And you think this is the correct forum to post this? Also you made a your account has to be activated.
Login problem from the sidebar fix:

Line 308 of inc/plugins/my_side_boxes.php

$portal_url = $mybb->settings['bburl']. "member.php";

Change to:

$portal_url = $mybb->settings['bburl']. "/member.php";

I will update front package.
Hey I have a few questions.

How do I change the width of the sidebar?

And how do I add new boxes to it?

One of the posts in this thread says where to edit width.

You can follow the instructions in the readme to edit the template.
I still don't understand how to make a new box. It does not tell you in the readme, it doesn't tell you specifically how to add/change boxes.

And changing width="200" to "150" didn't work for some reason. :/
Did you refresh? And my pixel ruler says your width is 200...try to make it 300 or 400 so you can tell it makes a difference. You may not have noticed the change from 150-200 that much.

To add boxes you edit the template in global called MySideBox.

To specifically add a box you just insert your HTML code. Here is a good example of a box:

<table border="0" cellspacing="{$theme['borderwidth']}" cellpadding="{$theme['tablespace']}" class="tborder">
<td class="thead"><strong><a href="{$mybb->settings['bburl']}/link.php">HEADER</a></strong></td>
<td class="trow1">
<span class="smalltext">WHATEVER<br /><br /></span>
<br />

Add between the spans your text or alter it however you want. I always assume people know at least basic html. For other examples of sideboxes just look at the portal templates.

To rearrange the boxes just switch positions in the mysideboxes template.

Hope that helps.
Yeah I know basic HTML, just not much about tables and structures of websites and all.

I have installed the plugin
However I followed all the steps given
Still side box does nt appear on my forum?
Please Help me
I have selected it to appear on index first and then on both index and forum
It didnt appear any ways
I followed all the steps given to configure it for my forum
And whats left off other than that
I made an upload of the sidebox plugin into inc/plu***/
And activated it from ACP
and configured the portal settings and enable it to appear on index first
and then lastly tried to appear on index as well as forums
But Nothing worked to make it appear on my forum.
Is there any other integration settings left off
Please let me know
