Re: Support for Chronolabs Modules (XOOPS 2.5 / 2.6)

Honestly, the way modules have been playing musical chairs through the developers has been confusing, considering for example the especially long list of variants for Profile module. So some scheme of organized and easy to understand labeling is in order that takes into account original author credit, XOOPS core version compatibility, and secondary developers.

RSI
Sorry about your misfortune. I have known people with repetitive strain injuries and it can be long and miserable, and because it can only be minimized, but not completely corrected with surgery. What do you do when that is your living?

It is prolly only matter of time before someone comes up with a keyboard with soft foam keys that one could peck with their nose.

Re: CloudFlare use?

What do you hope to get by using CloudFlare, security (DDOS protection), or a speed advantage?

If for speed, you forfeit ownership of data or scripts cached in the cloud for the privelege of faster execution.

You could gain speed advantage comparable to Cloudflare, and maintain ownership of your by using NGINX vs Apache hosting (hint, CloudFlare uses NGINX as do all major data intensive services). This is because Apaches has to allocate significant CPU processing power to service htaccess, which slows down the server. NGINX does everything htaccess does from the config so is much faster.
NGINX with a RAMdisk cache will get you every speed advantage.

If for security, it is because CF servers caching your site are taking the DDOS hit, but can slow the number of connection requests in the flood with the CloudFlare captcha..."Just One More Step".

Users visiting your site with anonymizing browser such as TorBrowser
will face serious harrassment from CF Captcha, which seeks to de-anonymize them by forcing them to use Javascript to complete the captcha (which also allows them to detect your real IP).

I personally, and eternally choose to retain data ownership, and will have nothing to do with cloud anything, much less CloudFlare. If you use a shared host with which you need the flexibility of Apache htaccess, then your options are limited to use CF if you really need the speed or security advantage.

BTW CF is now a standard option set in C-Panel if that makes life any easier.

Sandboxing Windows based development servers

A while back I came across Sandboxie, a Win32/64 program that provides a sandbox barrier for Windows applications.

Offers a free basic version, and a deluxe paid one with alot more conveniences. Essentially this will provide the similar sandbox protection for web facing browsers, servers etc that AppArmor provides for Linux.

Any compromise to the server stays in the sandbox but cannot reach the operating system, so it is a good layer of protection for dev servers.

You can sandbox a program, or a folder sandboxed, so anything in it will run sandboxed (i.e. WAMP, browser.

If you download from a sandboxed browser, you have to recover the D-L's manually out of the sandbox to the operating system.

I have ran with WAMP, XAMPP, and WPN-XM (Windows Nginx/PHP/MariaDB stack) all running XOOPS.

Re: Cesag pseudonym change

YouQuote:
I regret to no longer be part of this group...


Nonsense...

You went from being a 20% stakeholder in a group of 5, to a 100% in a group of one, assuming no other C10s exist.

As for the others in the now C5(-1), their group stakeholder shares increased from 20% to 25% by virtue that there are now four instead of five.


Win-win as they say...

Re: news module 1.66 not working with xoops 2.5.7.1

Quote:
Michael, Which is the Main repository for News module? Github or SF.net


this was answered in the previous post:

Quote:
However, if you want to stick with News, try the newer version


2.5.7.1 Full download linked in header above is also still on Sourceforge

Referencing the above statement:

Quote:
I would suggest to use Publisher, as it is actively maintained


It suggests Publisher will be the default news module being groomed for the initial release of V2.6 (probably on Github).

Also, I recently installed News module at the above linked source without Tags module with no issues. Neither was there an notification of this dependency.

Where any given module has such a dependency for another module, would it not make sense to bundle them together, or at least raise a notification during install of the primary module?

Re: TDMCreate 1.91 alpha 1 for Testing

What is the purpose of TDMCreate? Is this to be a starting base for building new modules?
