I’ve been a bit naughty over the last few months playing with e107 cms sites.
I still have half a dozen XOOPS sites and these have been quite happy building communities for a number of years now.

The reason I went with e107 was my inability to find or make a theme that did what I wanted and I just happened to fall over the e107 ones.

However I really miss the power of XOOPS and the far superior modules although there are certain areas where e107 has the edge.

Anyway does anyone know of any XOOPS themes that would give similar results to these two e107 sites I’ve done recently?

I’ve had a look but nothing jumps out at me so far.

Does that also apply to the module repository as there have been a number of module releases that do not appear in there.

If this does apply it might be worth a note in the header area of the repositorys to point people in the right direction.

Bounce,

I would have asked this on the developers site but they say the support is give via questions on this forum.

I can't get to the shoutbox to see the problem,
Can you either sort a temp pass or make it available to visitors.

It looks like the Search selection block with the tick boxes is not wrapping correctly.

Perhaps a small mod to this template might fix it.

I said prviously that the xhtml and css both now validate.

Well its half true as the Xhtml does validate but the css has two issues.
Quote:

word-wrap: break-word;
With the comment /* invalid CSS but keeps IE from breaking horribly under narrow viewports */

and

display: inline-block;
With the comment /* IE/Mac needs this */


Both, given the comments, appear to be known as issues by the Ruthersarian guy who created the original css.

Does anyone have any ideas how to solve or bypass these two issues?

Multimenu Dyn - Validation issues

I'm trying to get my sites to validate to Wc3.

Having got the theme to validate I now need to run through the most used modules to see if I can get these to validate.

Multimenu Dyn is a teriffic module and I have used it on most if not all of my sites.

Unfortunatley as soon as I turn on a Multimenu block I get validation issues as listed below.

I'm quite happy to edit but I can't find what bits to edit

I'm sure that many in the UK have the same problem so it would be great if someone could help make a few small changes to this module or at least point me in the right direction.

Error Line 229, column 165: value of attribute "align" cannot be "absmiddle"; must be one of "top", "middle", "bottom", "left", "right" .
...df.gif" alt="Policy" align="absmiddle" style="vertical-align:middle;" />Poli

Error Line 242, column 7: "tr" not finished but containing element ended .
</table>

Error Line 242, column 7: end tag for "tr" omitted, but OMITTAG NO was specified .
</table>

Many thanks - xhtml and css both now validate

Need to try and sort Multimenu next.

For those who are following this and want to validate
the short term solution if you require extra menus is to create them using a custom block.

Seems to work for me :)

Many thanks.

Just about done except for this one,

Line 74, column 25: document type does not allow element "style" here .
<style type="text/css"><!--

and I don't understand enough to try a solution on my own.

Apart from the masthead issues which were of my making all the others seem to have been Multimenu related.
Which is a shame as Multimenu is such a handy module.

Also I've been trying to get the site through validation.

I get 17 errors on xhtml which compared to other themes is teriffic however the first four errors are all on the same issue,

ID "masthead" already defined

Also I have a couple of, ID "mainmenu" already defined

The next four are, I suspect, module/template related and not theme and highlight issues with, an attribute specification must start with a name or name token - which refers to the quote marks in a number of url lines like this,

/uploads/t1.pdf" " title="Training the trainer">

Any help with these would be very welcome

Nope - can't get that to work.

tried 50px just to test but no joy.

for some reason the margin tag has no effect but the padding does ??

So as a temp fix I have got round this by increasing the bottom padding and losing the background colour and border.
