Re: Installing Xoops on Windows

If you have manually modified mainfile.php and let the installer install the database, everything should be allright.

Try making the folders cache, uploads and templates_c writeable by doing the following thing:
Open Explorer and navigate to your XOOPS installation - Rightclick on the folder en choose properties.

Then select the "security" tab. Press "Add" and enter the user your Apache installation is running under. If you no ideo who this is, try "Everybody" (This IS a security risk!) - then press "Check name" to make sure the user exists.

Press ok and the user is added. Now click on the user name you have added, and check the "write" permission box in the "Allow" column

Press ok and try again. Now things should be writeable.

I've uploaded just that 3 files and then updated the module, but some problems came up:
- When I open the popup menu it is always refreshing, like from 1 secondo to another...
- If I understood well you said something about admin can delete posts? where? how? i dont see a thing...
The rest is just the same, but more secure i think do you know how to solve this?
Thanks!


- I have no idea what is causing this. Can you overwrite all files in the modules/shoutbox map and then update the module? Make sure to backup uploads/shoutbox/shout.cvs.
- Just use the erase button next to the post button. Or open your ftp editor and goto uploads/shoutbox/shout.cvs and edit the file.

Re: shout box and hacking it

Hi

The following files are updated: xoops_version.php, shoutframe.php and shoutpopupframe.php. You can just overwrite those files.

Also, messages are stored in a seperated folder (uploads/shoutbox) so those are not affected by the update.

Greetings

Jan

Just for the record that happened to me too this week...i just went to shout.cvs and deleted the shout... but if anyone has a "cure" for that would be nice


There is a cure for this:

Remember however that if you enable anonymous users to post you still will experience spam problems.

I will try to get a hold on a XOOPS.org official to update the download repository. I'm unable to do so.

Re: shoutbox

Hey there

Sorry for the late respons. I've updated the module a few weeks ago, but the person I sent it to was unable to update his installation, so I couldn't release without decent testing.

If you are experiencing this problem, please update to the next version (no changes except fixing this problem).

http://xoops.jan304.org/modules/mydownloads/singlefile.php?lid=58

Please remember that Shoutbox seems to be picked up by spammers, and that it is no longer save to actually let anonymous users make posts in the shoutbox on popular sites.

If you still experience problems contact me a soon as possible or just post in this forum.

Re: needs help with shoutbox

There is not feature yet that enables you to edit the message from the web. Open your ftp client and go to /uploads/shoutbox/. Then open the file and edit the unwanted messages.

The next version (don't expect too soon, I already say this a year ) will likely include a message editor/remover (mysql version). You will have to do it this way for now.
