I have finished my Alumni module for Xoops 2.6.0 and will be releasing it this week.

I WILL BE RELEASING THIS FOR TESTING AND INFORMATIONAL USE ONLY.
It is for Xoops 2.6.0 ALPHA from GitHub

Normally I would not release anything for an ALPHA version of Xoops, but I need to be ready.
The only reason I am calling it ALPHA is because Xoops 2.6.0 is ALPHA.
It works great for me so far, a couple issues but I don't know if it is Xoops or me yet.
I don't expect it will work in the future but I needed to be more ready than I was, when a new release from Xoops comes.

I have already done a lot of work just to make it work with this ALPHA version of Xoops.

My modules as well as many other Xoops modules were not built with object orientated php, which is weird because Xoops has object orientated in its name.

I am so glad that this module is now OOPSed or close enough for now. Classifieds is almost finished too. I have not started the Jobs module yet, as it will be the hardest.
that's why I started with the Alumni module.

There are many file changes in this version,.
You can use your old Alumni database and Photos But everything else will need to be deleted.
I am putting all the photos in one folder called photos, in that folder will be grad_photo, now_photo and school_photos all will need to be writable.
I have also added tablesorter to the categories pages as well as the listing section in the admin.
Tablesorter is a jquery script for sorting and pagination, I love it. I hope I can keep it for the final version.

Tablesorter comes from here:
http://mottie.github.io/tablesorter/docs/index.html


The best thing about ALPHA software is that you can ask for new features and if I like them and I think I can impliment them, I will.

I know I need to do something better for the photos, but it's ALPHA.



I have tested this module on the following servers:


PHP Version 5.3.26
mySQL Version 5.5.36-cll
Server API cgi-fcgi

AND

PHP Version 5.5.11 & 5.5.12
mySQL Version 5.5.36-MariaDB
Server API apache2handler

And everything works for me. Knock on wood.

If you have any issues with this module please report it here on Xoops.

I have some questions about where 2.6.0 is going.

1. Will the folder locale eventually replace the language folder?
2. I still think there is something wrong with notifications, a regular user can't access that area at all.
3. The search doesn't seem to remember the andor, it always goes to ALL(AND). So I removed it
from my module, it was probably confusing anyway.

I am curious to see what a php guru thinks of what I have done, and what I did wrong.


Thanks,

John

It will be a while before I can release anything, I have a lot of work to do.
As you know my modules aren't OOPed. And it seems everything needs to be. So I have some work to do, which I have been doing a lot in the last 2 or 3 weeks.
I wanted to OOP the modules someday, so I guess now is as good as anytime, I think I can handle it.

Mamba, if you didn't help me with the jobs module I would be lost. So I want to thank you for that, and you thought you were only updating the admin gui.
I'm feeling alot better now than when I wrote my last post. Got a lot done today.

Thanks,

John

I'm still not able to install xoops on my test server, but was able to on a shared hosting server after a couple of tries. Not really sure what it was in the shared server, but I did replaced data/secure.dist.php a couple of times and set it to port 80 and it worked.

But now the problems are going to begin.
Like I started saying the other day I had all my modules working perfect with the 2.6.0 alpha2 from sourceforge, but now I don't know if I can make it work with this new version, it may just be to much to do at once.
I really don't see how any old modules will work at all, without major work to them. I think backwards compatibility has ended here.

I will still play around and see what I can do but I might have just been knocked out of this game.

Thanks,

John

I got one server to finish the installation, so I guess I'm good for now.

Thanks,

I put the vendor folder in xoops_lib but when I get to this page
http://localhost/install/page_configsave.php
I get this error:

Could not copy into secure.php the distribution file: /data/secure.dist.php
all permissions are correct

Now I tried it on another server and I get the same error.

is there somewhere else but github to get the files?

That solution was for a windows machine, wouldn't touch one.

I have looked around all day to try and figure this out.
the best I can get is this error:

[root@localhost xoops_lib]# curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php
curl: (23) Failed writing body (4095 != 8030)


IS THERE A LIST OF the libraries that is needed to run the xoops installation, I could have found them all in the time I messed with this today. PLEASE

Thanks,

John

I have PHP version 5.5.8

the braille.so binary was in the correct place, I removed php-braille from my machine.

Now I get this in my terminal:

[root@localhost xoops_lib]# php composer
Could not open input file: composer

No matter how I try to get this from their website, manual download or through a terminal I get the same error,

I really hope this composer is not going to be a part of Xoops. I would rather Xoops just came with the libraries it needs.

I don't know what to do or look for.

THIS WOULD HELP
Is there a list of the libraries that composer was supposed to download, so I could download them, so I can continue with the installation?

Thanks,
John

I'm already not happy.

I did just go to github and downloaded the version from there. Now when I try to run composer I get this error:

[root@localhost xoops_lib]# php composer
PHP Warning:  PHP StartupUnable to load dynamic library '/usr/lib64/php/extensions/braille.so' - /usr/lib64/php/extensions/braille.soundefined symbolbraille_useatable in Unknown on line 0
Could not open input file
composer

Now what?

If you didn't want me to download from sourceforge why is the link still on Xoops homepage?
For me if it says get 2.6.0 here or get 2.6.0 alpha2 here I would naturally go to the alpha 2 figuring it is the newest. Why would I not get the same thing no matter where I get it? That should be fixed asap.


So what do I do next?

Thanks,

John

I have updated all my modules for 2.6.0, I am done but I have a couple of issues.

1. i have the comments working but they only work if I am logged in as the webmaster, if I login as a registered user I can see the comments at the bottom of my page but if I click on Publish Comments I get an error message:

sorry, you don't have permission to access this area

2. Basically the same thing with notifications, everything works perfect as the webmaster but if I click on anything to do with notifications as a registered user i get the error :

sorry, you don't have permission to access this area

Anyone have the same issues?

maybe we need to add comments and notifications to the 'Module Access rights' under groups in the admin.

Thanks,
John
