    So of course I realize I screwed up something... turns out in the storefront includes/configure.php I had the DIR_FS_CATALOG set to my production shop.
    All other defines were fine in the storefront configure, just that one was wrong. Ouch! The admin configure file was completely fine.
    That explains why the admin side worked but the display did not.
    So sorry for the hassle.

    Remaining questions:
    Are there missing files in the plugin, for sideboxes? Or is it merely the documentation that needs updating?
    It's the documentation that's incorrect; I've updated the version provided on my website. Thanks again for pointing out those omissions and "misspellings"!

    Thanks lat9,
    Glad some good came out of all my confusion! Happily adding the plugin to my production cart tonight.
    Zen Cart 1.5.6c modified for Japanese language support. Upgraded incrementally from initial 1.5.5d. Currently planning direct upgrade to 2.0.0 with available Japanese language pack and far fewer required plugins.

    My explanation was not enough.
    I have removed all v2 files when I update for my test website.
    I haven't changed the definition in the "news_box_manager_defines.php" yet, but I think it works because I can see the word Type1 not BOX_NEWS_NAME_TYPE1.

    If I insert a news from Tools -> News Box Manager[All Types] -> Insert -> Preview, "News Type:" shows its type.

    And if I insert a news from Tools -> News Box Manager[Type1(or 2,3,4)] -> Insert -> Preview, "News Type:" shows nothing and I get error log.
    Attachment 18885

    PHP Warning: constant(): Couldn't find constant BOX_NEWS_NAME_TYPE in /home/****/www/***admin***/news_box_manager.php on line 719.


    I'm right in the middle of learning PHP, so if you have any suggestions please let me know.
    Thank you,

    I will correct the post, when I insert a news, it's OK.
    But If I modify a news from "News Box Manager[Type1(or 2,3,4)]", I got the error.

    Ah, thanks for that! I've replicated on my local test site and should have a correction real-soon-now.

    @K1979, you can correct that issue by editing your /YOUR_ADMIN/news_box_manager.php, locating this code section (starting at line 537):
    Code:
    // -----
    // Editing an existing article or inserting a new one ... noting that we can also come back here
    // from an article's insert/update "Preview" to make changes prior to saving in the database.
    //
    if ($action == 'modify' || $action == 'updateedit' || $action == 'new' || $action == 'newedit') {
        if ($action == 'modify' || $action == 'updateedit') {
            $form_action = 'updatepreview' . "&nID=$nID";
            $hidden_field = zen_draw_hidden_field('nID', $nID);
            $cancel_link = zen_href_link($news_box_script_name, $page_get_params . "nID=$nID");
        } else {
    and adding the highlighted line:
    Code:
    // -----
    // Editing an existing article or inserting a new one ... noting that we can also come back here
    // from an article's insert/update "Preview" to make changes prior to saving in the database.
    //
    if ($action == 'modify' || $action == 'updateedit' || $action == 'new' || $action == 'newedit') {
        if ($action == 'modify' || $action == 'updateedit') {
            $form_action = 'updatepreview' . "&nID=$nID";
            $hidden_field = zen_draw_hidden_field('nID', $nID);
            $hidden_field .= ($all_news_types) ? '' : zen_draw_hidden_field('news_content_type', $news_box_type);
            $cancel_link = zen_href_link($news_box_script_name, $page_get_params . "nID=$nID");
        } else {
    I'll be getting v3.0.3 of News Box Manager released, containing this change as well as the documentation updates identified by @gernot.

    v3.0.3 has been submitted to the Zen Cart moderators for review; I'll post back here once it's available for download.

    Hello again,

    I test some cases.

    Case1
    Sidebox #1: Category to Show -> 1
    Sidebox #2: Category to Show -> 2
    Home Page: Display Mode -> Categories
    The home-page news(index page) shows category 2 only.

    Case2
    Sidebox #1: Category to Show -> All
    Sidebox #2: Category to Show -> 2
    Home Page: Display Mode -> Categories
    The home-page news(index page) shows category 2 only.

    Case3(changed sidebox order by "Tools->Layout Boxes Controller")
    Sidebox #2: Category to Show -> 2
    Sidebox #1: Category to Show -> All
    Home Page: Display Mode -> Categories
    The home-page news(index page) shows all categories.



    I will reconfirm by vanilla files later.
    I have already customized some codes, so that might cause this.

    More informational as we had a cpanel crash during the upgrade of NBM to 3.0.2. Not sure what version was loaded.

    Got the can't connect error and no connect to admin.

    Log had
    Code:
    PHP Fatal error: 1054:Unknown column 'news_content_type' in 'where clause' :: UPDATE box_news            SET news_content_type = 1
              WHERE news_content_type = 0 ==> (as called by) /home/roiweji/public_html/kSJbdgf/includes/init_includes/news_box_manager_update.php on line 258 <== in /home/russradi/public_html/includes/classes/db/mysql/query_factory.php on line 171.
    not real user or admin.

    Added news_contnent_type to news_box as tinyint 1 and all works.

    Sorry for brevity. Late for appointment
