Re: Image Gallery with external hosting

I'm also looking for a solution to host modules on external servers (xoopsgallery in my case). I'd like to get a discussion going with potential solutions.

The easiest way is to use iframe inside a content module. If you use a theme at the remote server that strips unneeded blocks, headers, etc it doesn't look too bad. This doesn't solve issues of authentication when users need rights for uploading etc.

I'm wondering if some sort of module is possible that would allow two (or more) XOOPS sites to share specified modules/content. This would be different than a multisite hack since the two servers would not likely be able to share MySQL communications directly because of locations.

It isn't too much trouble to manually sync user tables. We would want to pass authentication between sites (or not) or at least server authentication so that remote content can be seamlessly shared while using mostly the bandwidth of the target servers depending on where the content resides.

Meanwhile you can try a simple iframe trick. You want the remote end to use a stripped down theme that matches your local theme in style and doesn't present the extra bits of a normal site.

Re: xoops minimum requirements

64M is rather small to run a server. Are you running the MySQL server on the same box? Is a GUI running on the box too?

The other thing to do is to make sure you are running the PHP module and not as CGI. CGI will spark a lot of processes.

RAM is cheap and the most beneficial to a happy server. You don't need a GUI login on a server. You can also see better performance by compiling the Linux kernel, Apache, and PHP from source and only include relevant components. But that isn't for novices.

Re: Hiquality Webcam module

Is there something special you would want from this besides a quality image? If I had a need for this I'd use the best stand alone webcam apps I could find (there are Flash apps I'd consider) and then plug it in via a simple block or content module. Kind of like ad servers, much better a stand alone system that sits on the site without any real need to integrate with the rest of xoops.

Re: Sell me your footer!!

Perhaps you can explain what you're talking about? One of my sites has over 10,000 but I can't see why anyone would want to pay me because of that. I can see lots of reasons why a lot of people would like me to pay them (the spam count.. lol) but not why they would pay me.

Re: speed of my site

FYI, You seem to have a problem with wfchannel or content that appears in that module. The long delays return anytime a user returns to wfchannel.

Re: How to merge Mainmenu and usermenu ?

^^What Solo71 said..
Multimenu would be the easiest solution. A little tedious building the menus and getting them in the desired order (hint, MM needs a reorder feature) but it gets the job done without touching/hacking the core.

My preference order for doing this would be:
Multimenu (easiest by far)
Build my own menu in the theme (also pretty easy but more time consuming)
Hack the templates (only under specific cases like commercial sites that pay $$ and insist on a solution not already available)

Re: How many splits can XOOPS bear?

Sometimes language issues can get an already touchy subject further off track. The timing out thing had me shaking my head. Oh well. And xoops.org still uses newbb...

Forks? Nothing new about that. And forks because of "ancient" bugs? I doubt it, why not offer the fix for them instead of a whole new app?

We can keep this "ancient" topic shorter by referring everyone to the mentioned thread or the others on the same subject. Endless pages of pokes, jabs, and confusion with no consensus.

Fork away if one must. If the app is truly better or has a cool name or better marketing then all the power to them. I'll need a lot more than 15 votes to even take the bait to have a look.

Re: linked Avatars save bandwidth

What change avatar script, custom?

IMHO I much prefer it as it is. Linked avatars suck and don't save bandwidth.

To me it is the content that matters, not the vanity of the user. I've seen some really clever avatars and signatures to only be followed by a useless comment or post.

For the few users that ask me about it on my site I tell them to create an avatar that conforms to the rules and if they really must do external linking they can do it in the signature.

Re: What is difference between?

right.... Just name them normally and add your (space delimited) keyword.

block 1 none
block 2 none
image block none
spotlight none

etc...

Re: What is difference between?

Maybe I wasn't clear, "on top of the calendar" is just placing a block above the calendar while the calendar has no block title. I do the same for the center block on the front page. and a few other places. Some of the calendar modules have a random image to do the same thing but I'd rather leverage the thousands of pics from the gallery.

<{if $block.title|regex_replace:"/.*none/":"none" ne "none"}>
   <{
$block.title}>
<{/if}>
