2. How to create a custom theme for QuickBioLink?

You can create your custom theme with our CMS.

There are mainly two folders.

1. public/templates/{theme-name}: Static assets are usually stored in the public folder in Laravel. You can create a new folder with your theme name to store all the theme assets (CSS, JS, and images). For the preview image of your theme, you need to add a preview.jpg file here.

2. resources/views/templates/{theme-name}: Views contain the HTML served by all the theme pages.  All the view files will be stored here. You can create a new folder with your theme name to store the view files here. For a quick start, just copy the default (classic) theme, paste it, and rename the folder name with your theme name. And now edit all the files inside this folder to change your theme. 

Folder Structure:


Note: Do not rename any file or edit the folder structure. Because these files are connected with the routes.

Go to admin > templates and here you can see your created custom theme.



For any other help create a support ticket.

3. 500 Internal server error – Solved

1. You have to edit the .htaccess file as below:

DirectoryIndex index.php
RewriteEngine On
Options +FollowSymLinks
Options -Indexes
RewriteCond %{SCRIPT_FILENAME} !-d  RewriteCond %{SCRIPT_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule . index.php [L,QSA]

2. You have to edit your apache2.conf file to allow rewrite. Your apace2.conf file is located at /etc/apache2

On the file, find the location on file which says:

<Directory /var/www/>    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks    AllowOverride None    Require all granted
</Directory>

and replace that with:

<Directory /var/www/>    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks    AllowOverride All    Require all granted
</Directory>

sudo a2enmod rewrite

sudo service apache2 restart

16. Troubleshooting SMTP Issues

Basic Configuration for SMTP Server

Problem

Description: User was unable to configure the SMTP e-mail server.

Solution

  1. Check the SMTP server settings.
    • SMTP server address—Check the host name or network address of the SMTP e-mail server. Typical SMTP server addresses or host names are as follows:
      • smtp.bylancer.com
      • smtp.gmail.com
      • smtp.mail.yahoo.com
      • AWS
    • TLS—Check whether Transport Layer Security (TLS) option is enabled. This setting ensures that the information is transmitted over an encrypted channel. Not all SMTP servers support encryption. If TLS option is enabled for an SMTP server that does not support TLS, then disable the TLS option.
    • Port—Check with your e-mail service provider for the port number that the SMTP server listens to. Generally, port number 587 is used for a TLS connection and port number 25 is used for unencrypted connections.

    Typical SMTP server settings are as follows:

    • smtp.bylancer.com—Set TLS to No and port number to 25
    • smtp.gmail.com—Set TLS to Yes and port number to 587
    • smtp.mail.yahoo.com—Set TLS to Yes and port number to 465 or 587
  2. Check the SMTP authentication settings.
    • Check whether the e-mail server requires authentication. If yes, then specify the following options.
      • From Name
      • User Name
      • Password
      • From E-mail Address
      • NOTE :

      If Gmail blocks SMTP e-mails, then log in to Gmail account, navigate to Advanced Settings > Security > Less secure app access and click the toggle button to turn on Allow less secure apps option.

  3. Test SMTP settings by sending a test e-mail.If you are unable to send a test e-mail:


    1. Check the SMTP server settings to see if they match the SMTP server provider’s settings.
    2. Check authentication credentials.
    3. Check the SMTP server provider’s security settings for SMTP (for example: Gmail blocks SMTP email unless user selects less secure app settings on their gmail account).
    4. Check whether there is network access from CSO to the SMTP server.
    5. Check whether the firewall is blocking SMTP traffic to SMTP server or whether the ports are blocked. If the server settings and authentication settings are correct, check whether the firewall is blocking port 587 and 465 and SMTP traffic. If it is a case of the firewall blocking, then work with the network administrator to unblock ports 465, 587, and SMTP traffic.
