Re: Proposed Updates

Sounds great, as long as it is optional.

I was nominated for the Forum Quote of the Year award in 2008 for my acerbic response to the idea of such a system applying updates automatically

Re: Losing revenue because of Adblock?

I don't object to seeing ads on websites, but video advertisements are crippling the internet by trying to turn it into a TV.

If you get two or more videos trying to load and play on the same web page, they can reduce the browser to a crawl, even on a powerful PC.

I would use an app that blocked video-ads only, but up to now most of the solutions I have seen just promise to block everything, which does seem unfair.

Re: new theme for xoops.org

It think it would be nice if the page navigation links in the forum were buttons. This would make it easier to use on a mobile phone.

I use the following CSS on Xoops 2.5 if you want to try it :

/* pk pagination as buttons */

 #xo-pagenav{float:right}
 #xo-pagenav a.xo-pagarrow { /* page navigation arrows */
   
display:block
   
float:left
   
width30px
   
height:30px
   
text-align:center
   
padding-top3px
   
margin0 4px 0 4px
   
border1px solid #ccc;
   
border-radius:5px;
 -
moz-border-radius:5px;
 -
webkit-border-radius:5px;
   }
 
#xo-pagenav a.xo-pagarrow:hover{ /* page navigation arrows HOVER */
   
display:block
   
float:left
   
width30px
   
height:30px;
   
text-align:center
   
padding-top3px
   
margin0 4px 0 4px;  
   
border1px solid #ccc; 
   
background-color#eee;
   
border-radius:5px;
 -
moz-border-radius:5px;
 -
webkit-border-radius:5px;
   }
 
#xo-pagenav .xo-pagact { /* active page */
   
display:block
   
float:left
   
width30px
   
height:30px
   
text-align:center
   
padding-top3px
   
margin0 4px 0 4px;  
   
border1px solid #ccc;  
   
background-color#98C93B;
   
border-radius:5px;
 -
moz-border-radius:5px;
 -
webkit-border-radius:5px;
   } 
 
#xo-pagenav a.xo-counterpage { /* visited page */
   
display:block
   
float:left
   
width30px
   
height:30px
   
text-align:center
   
padding-top3px
   
margin0 4px 0 4px;

   }

border1px solid #ccc; 
   
background-color#eee;
   
border-radius:5px;
 -
moz-border-radius:5px;
 -
webkit-border-radius:5px;
   }

Re: new theme for xoops.org

@sabahan

Can you see the 'New Topic' button at the top of each forum? I can only see a 'Register' button.

Just trying to work out if it's just me having the problem

Thx

Re: Show topics in forum by default

No. Sorry Bleekk, I still just see a 'Register' button. Perhaps this is a NewBB permissions bug.

Can any other ordinary (non-admin) users see the 'New Topic' button and start a new topic?

Re: Show topics in forum by default

No. All I see in place of where you show a 'New Topic' button is a 'Register' button.

Tried in Firefox and IE and get the same result in several forums.

I am logged in.

You're absolutely right, and Bleekk is working very hard to make it all very user friendly.


Well, congratulations on that!. Very nice work. Looks great on desktop and mobile phone and the forum post text is clear and easy to read. A real step forwards.

There is some button re-sizing on mouse rollovers (probably just needs a CSS tweak) but more significantly I cannot find the 'New Topic' button in the forum? Otherwise I would have posted a 'Congratulations on the new look!' post.

Show topics in forum by default

I know the new XO website is a work in progress, but I think it would be a good idea to reveal the topics by default when someone selects a forum from the forum homepage. At present, unless they click the (+) button, the forums appear to be empty.

Extgallery. Force photo title and upload

I have been doing some work with Extgallery recently and found that the module will automatically use the filename if no photo title is entered. This is useful, but if you want to force users to enter a title you can change the following.

In public_upload.php at about line 68, simply change FALSE at the end of the line to TRUE (as shown) and the Xoops form feature will make the field required.

// pk make photo title a required field (set TRUE)
$form->addElement(new XoopsFormText(_MD_EXTGALLERY_PHOTO_TITLE'photo_title''50''150'),true);


It's a good idea to make uploading a photo a requirement, so you can make the change again just below at around line 74:

// pk make uploading a photo a requirement
$form->addElement(new XoopsFormFile(_MD_EXTGALLERY_PHOTO'photo_file'$xoopsModuleConfig['max_photosize']),true);


The second change might be a better default IMHO.
