I have a few questions.
1, I am kinda confused what tags to start with.
2, Do I put it in an EzPortal HTML block?

How exactly do I install a block that I've made? Do I upload it to the ezportal/blocks dir in its own sub dir? I tried this but ezportal doesn't seem to know its there. The ezportal block upload page doesn't seem to work either.

yes yes yes, I know how to create a block but it doesn't say how to install a block using ftp.  And the inbuilt block installer doesn't want to update the list of available blocks after it uploads...

I'll update my ezportal build but I'd like to know this, its oddly not mentioned.

Ok this is only a guess, but have you tried to compress the block using Win Zip, not war, then upload it, most everything in the SMF system needs this format to work in the upload functions.

Then upload through the EzPortal manager upload system.

If you do not have the win zip you can get the Zipgenious totally free here:
Code: [Select]
http://www.zipgenius.it/
Make certain when compressing you don't compress it into 2 folders, right click when zipgeious menu appears click on add to " your folder name or block name" it will compress it!
try to do this from you desktop so you can find it right off!
