thanks [you] for reading my post

There is no correct order of install really. I usually install the essential mods that I really want first and then do the rest that are not real important.

If you install 4 and the fifth will not install.....uninstall the last one you installed and than try the one that would not go.

I moved you two topics into "General Support" as there is not really a need for a tutorial on these. :)

Personally, I start with the larger mods suck as Simple Portal, SMF Arcade and SMF Gallery Lite. The others are small in the number of files and coding that need to be done.

Remember, the more mods you have the mods problems you may tend to face. For instance, if you have 10 mods already installed, you don't want to have to try to fix a large mod with a ton of files and code and have to sort through the SMF code and the code from the other mods.

The smaller ones are generally easier to fix if you have a lot of mods install like you wish to do so do those last.
