Cannot find installed add-ons when going to add block on a page
I am very new to Concrete5 and have searched the forums for help with this issue. I have installed one theme and 2 add-ons. I can access the theme no problem. I can see all 3 packages on the add functionality page and also from my cpanel in the /packages folder. And it says they are installed. The 2 add-ons are Google Map (Premium) and Sortable Fancybox Gallery 1.13. I have the latest Concrete5 version and am using an intel based Mac. I have cleared the cache, refreshed the page, restarted the browser, switched browsers and anything else I can think of, but when I go to add block I cannot see those 2 add-ons anywhere. What am I doing wrong???
There are two steps. If your new blocks are in the right side column of the "add functionality" page, you still need to install them. If they are in the left column then there is something else afoot.
EDIT. I just downloaded it via the marketplace and I had it backwards. If you apply it to your projects from concrete5.org, or upload it into your folder via ftp, then you will still need to install it if it is in the right column.
Installing it from the backend seems to install it with one click. I got it working that way.
and the folders/files are actually on the server?
You do have access to the database don't you?
Is anything reported in the log files
(not that I know what that means)
Its been depreciated so I assume the core team have now resolved this?
The use of the @ prevents the script from falling over itself when it fails.
You may also be able to add the following to the htaccess file

I have the exact same problem (at least the symptoms - for the cause, I'm not sure). My manually installed add-ons show up in the 'Add a Functionality' but not in the block list when I want to add one to a page. It is quite frustrating.
However, I have access to the files via FTP but that's it. No cPanel, no PhpMyAdmin, nothing else.
I tried the trick of the .htaccess, but it doesn't work:
- when I add this line to the .htaccess at the root, it blocks the entire website.
- when I add thisline to a newly created .htaccess file in the /packages directory, it doesn't help.
Does someone have a suggestion?? I would much appreciate...
Hg80meda, good that you found a solution!
