Hi,

since I am new to phpNUKE I wonder if there is a manual or some like that on the most basics of Sentinel and how I should configure it the first time I use it.

Don´t want to make something wrong before I actually know what to set there. Any help is appreciated.

Thank you.

Wolfseye

Even though it isn't up-to-date, the manual should provide a sufficient introduction to the basics and how to configure it. The default settings are recommend, for the most part, with an exception being setting up admin authentication. As Susann pointed out, the pop-up help can provide specific details on settings and should be current.

Here is a good opportunity for a non-programmer to contribute something to the Nuke community by writing an updated Nuke Sentinel manual.

Thank you. Those File Edits in that Manual, do I still have to do them, also with this latest Version, or is that only folder older Sentinel Installations ?

Just to make sure.

You always need to do the edits for core files like its described in your downloaded NukeSentinel pack.Only in RavenNuke its already done.

Wolfseye check the HowToInstall there is also something about configure NukeSentinel.
Its all explained.
Activate HTTP AUTH and check the settings of your blocker and check also the settings in the NukeSentinel administration if you wish to change these.

Well, if these File Edits are already done by Raven, then I wonder why it isn´t in the mainfile.php and javascript.php like the manual says. So what do I do ? Do i add it now or not ?

No, you don´t need to edit your files using RavenNuke.

If I may jump in;
Susann I believe was just trying to explain that although you do not have to make any file edits because Nuke Sentinel is built into RavenNuke, that you should read the HowToInstall as there is additional information there that will help you understand the security of your site better.
Nuke Sentinel provides and additional security step 'HTTP AUTH' which Susann refered to and which the installer cannot do for you - it is a manual process should you choose to take advantage of it.
The HowToInstall also explains that the installation process does set up the most common settings for you automatically but as Susann mentioned, you may want to tweak them a little when you get to know how and why they work.

Thank you. One more question if I may. For making my own Site Navigation, someone told me about a Module called SOMMAIR or some like that, and he thought it would be included but i can´t find so I think it isnt. Is that something you would recommend installing or if not, is there a reason for it ?

Is there a difference in what Version of this Module I should use with RN ?

Thanks in advance already, sorry for asking those n00b Questions, just trying to find out what I need to know before I do something wrong.

Sure I had Sommaire on one of my RavenNuke testsites. Can´t remember the version number. Should work but there are some known issues with. I think they are minimal. Just try it out.

Well, the file edits that the manual describes, i checked for them in those places where the manual says they should be, and they weren´t there. Thats why I wasn´t sure if they weren´t in there where I looked or not at all. If they are someplace else, then its just my n00b understanding of NUKE yet. Wink

wolfseye, it is because Sommaire hasn't been updated in probably a good 2 - 3 years. The author has gone completely AWOL. Alot has changed in nuke, especially with the patches, and especially with RavenNuke(tm). So, core file edits might take some re-engineering on your part.

I am trying to remember what edits were for mainfile.php. But, for the javascript one, I am pretty sure you just need to put the code referenced somewhere between your opening <?php tag and closing ?> tag. Here is what mine looks like:

//Added HTML Newsletter 1.3 style sheet
echo '<link rel="stylesheet" href="themes/'.$ThemeSel.'/style/msnl_style.css" type="text/css" />';

Code:


// BEGIN - Add style sheet for Sommaire 3.0b
echo <<<_JS_
<style type="text/css">
<!--
.sommairenowrap {white-space: nowrap;}
-->
</style>
_JS_;
// END - Add style sheet for Sommaire 3.0b


That one may or may not be important depending upon your theme...

Wow, this is a answer-mix of both my threads, right ? Wink

Yeah, definitely an issue when there are two threads. I was concerned in your other one that maybe you didn't have a good download / version. But, if the above is all you are having issues with now, maybe we can stop the other thread.
