module developers do test their modules.. but they can't test everything because their server setups might not be the same as everyone elses.

the best way to test modules is for a number of people to test the module and report bugs (which is what is done in 99% of all developments) the bug trackers are public, that's the results of testing ;) providing the mod dev uses a bug tracker. most do.

also a module can be sometimes tested for months before being labelled as final, then inevitably once released someone will report even more bugs, it's a catch 22, testing is an ongoing development even after a final release due to the nature of open source and everybodies different server setups and different modules that they use on their sites..

the other thing is that most developers will test their versions on their current version of XOOPS (usually the latest version) you can't expect them to install several XOOPS versions and test the module on each.

that's where you come in. but usually if a module is labelled as beta or RC then you have to presume their will/might be bugs or compatibility issues. on that note tho, if we test and it works on 2.0.16 but not on 2.0.13.2 then you have to take account that it works.. and that the version of XOOPS you are using is out of date and needs updating, so you can't exactly blame the module dev for that. remember if your XOOPS is out of date, then that version of XOOPS may contain bugs or compatibility problems. that's why the updates are made. the issues may not be that the module is buggy, it maybe those bugs in that version of XOOPS that are stopping it working correctly, and why should devs have to make their module work with an older version of xoops? that would be like taking a step back in development.

the new repository will have info about compatibility, indeed it does at the moment if the submitter isn't lazy and actually fills in that part of the form. but all in all the new repository will be more maintained and up2date.

progress is happening that's for sure (not just words this time, it is actually being done and is actually nearly ready)

actually i think looking at it, i don't think it's that easy..

$code  = ( ' <Script Language="JavaScript" Src="dateScript.js"></Script>
<Script Language="JavaScript" Src="persianPopupCalendar.js"></Script>
<script type="text/javascript">addCalendar({' 
.
                   
$js_options .
                   
'});</script>' );


function addcalendar in persianPopupCalendar.js has options >

function addCalendar(name, title, field, form)

so you might need to make sure $js_options also uses those values.

they're defined in formcalendar.php

$js_options = $this->_make_js_hash(array_merge($this->calendar_options, $other_options));

which is where i got lost, so you'll definitely have to wait for someone with more knowledge than me that's for sure.. sorry i can't be of more help.

i think but not certain.

Quote:

<Script Language="JavaScript" Src="dateScript.js"></Script>
<Script Language="JavaScript" Src="persianPopupCalendar.js"></Script>


needs to be place in the <head> tag of theme.html

then in the block/template you would have >

Quote:

<Form Name="myForm" Method="Post" Action="">

<input type="text" name="myFirstDate" size="30" Value="">
<a href="javascript:void(0)" onclick="showCal('calFirstDate'); return false;" HIDEFOCUS><img name="popcal" align="absmiddle" src="calbtn.gif" border="0" alt="Select Date"></a>

<br>

<input type="text" name="mySecondDate" size="30" Value="">
<a href="javascript:void(0)" onclick="showCal('calSecondDate'); return false;" HIDEFOCUS><img name="popcal" align="absmiddle" src="calbtn.gif" border="0" alt="Select Date"></a>

</Form>

<Script Language="JavaScript">
addCalendar("calFirstDate", "Select Date", "myFirstDate", "myForm");
addCalendar("calSecondDate", "Select Date", "mySecondDate", "myForm");
</Script>


replace (tammairanslip) with java script: (remove the space)

set to '0' in modules admin page for that module.

this question has been answered many times on the forum if you search.

mclindy, it's not a cookie issue.

we're talking about specific pages here on xoops.org as mentioned. not issues with our own websites.

custom sessions is not related to this.. I use custom sessions on my own site, always have & they have never caused this issue. also if it was a problem with custom sessions then it's likely that lots more people would have the same issue. indeed i would probably have the same issue with my other account here on xoops.org

also it's definitely not a problem with browser settings as i can access them all on my alternate user account here (vaughan) without problems.

also as i mentioned before, i gave my login info & password to JDseymour who then tried logging in with his computer, and also got the same problems using my m0nty account on his computer. so it's definitely not a problem with any of the computers i've used. the problems are specific to my account and the accounts mentioned in this topic. as yet unsolved mysteries.

Re: using SHA-256 instead of md5

but surely then >

Quote:

encrypted_password = md5(secret_key . md5(cleartext_password))


would be enough then if he just grabs the key from the password key from the db without knowing the secret key.

even if he uses rainbow then, he may get a result with some keystrings that may produce that same md5 hash.. but in essence the users password would not be known because that whole md5 key is not a md5 hash of password.. it's an md5 hash of secret key + md5 pw..

maybe you could even md5 the secret key add it to the md5 pw and then md5 the result yet again.

pass = md5(md5(secret key).md5(password))

maybe i'm thinking differently tho & not along the lines of what you're asking (which i do understand) i'm just offering up alternative suggestions.

maybe even openPGP encryption? or key pairs?

add a blank index.html file to the uploads folder

chmod should be 777.

altho if your server is running with php in CGI mode under phpsuexec, then you should be able to set 755 permissions.
