Transifex and rant

Why I'm looking in XOOPS2.5_mod_avaman0.22_mamba.zip downloaded from SF.NET minute ago and found this:

define('_MI_AVAMAN_MODULENAME' 'AVAMAN' ) ;
define('_MI_AVAMAN_MODULEDESC' 'Managing system avatars and smilies' ) ;

define('_MI_AVAMAN_AVATARMANAGER' 'Avatar Manager' ) ;
define('_MI_AVAMAN_SMILIESMANAGER' 'Smilies Manager' ) ;


GIJoe's way of typing !
How much time I have to repeat same and same things and no one is doing anything here ?
Nope, I will not replace bitcero from Project coordinators on TX with Cesag, she will replace me!
I don't have anymore nerves to loose and to repeat over and over again DO THIS and NOT THAT!
What's updated to final from RC, even not and the language !
No changelog at all, what for we was talking so much ?

IF she want and have the will to do something for nothing! Will let her to over take it.

Cesag - Do you want this position ?
I'll explain to u how TX works, how to maintain each sub-project and how to release/add new files.

Transifex Removed Modules

Lawsuite - not supported by the developer!
Spanish (es-ES) partial translation is available from here
http://rghost.net/42904389

In next few days when get some free time will update language files towards latest BMP and will remove all Chronolabs modules (they're locked, not accepting translations), but still causing troubles with updating/adding new releases.

Also there is not that WP standard in XOOPS to have %1$s, %2$s, %3$s,... in definitions.

We can change that!


From bad to worst (Nuke to WP), let's make it like Drupal, it's a solid-rock CMS which no one use from ages, the only CMS which uses NODE instead of Article, well 2nd using Weight instead of Ordering, Taxonomy Term for Sub-category, and adding GNU Gettext.

Alpha 2 is coming out soon without setting up important things....
The user is user without Gender only in English, in rest languages there are... (3 forms) "I accept ToS" - don't have other meaning then I (but for English only, when female/male/boy accepts terms).

Then forms:
X-1.0.zip downloaded %1s (one download)
X-1.0.zip downloaded %2s (many downloads)

Forum (User)
User (Gender type) have %s (Male/Female got same translation here, but different on count)
User (Gender type) have %s

Female/Male quote:
Alesia wrote: (got one translation for Female)
Alex wrote: (got another translaton for Male)

(but not and same words are used for system)
Forum (System)
Forum (system) have %s post
Forum (system) have %s post

2nd point - no idea what for will be used as language files, INI, POT, PHP or something else ? How much alphas will go out ?

3rd.....
Several different threads are opened for 2.6 without mentioning simple task tree:

ACL - 0% done or 100%, current ACL used in 2.5 not allows to make administrator for specific module operations, for example can approve downloads, can create categories, can upload, can operate in specific categories, but can't delete....
i10n - 0% done for sure
Users - 0% done for sure
Content - xxx% done ?!?
etc, etc.
Quote:

- use html2pdf in extension "pdf" (http://html2pdf.fr/en/default)


How the decision was taken for this ? XOOPS was "community driven", where was the Poll regarding all alternatives ? I think something like this was used in J! 1.0 and removed by own class in 2.5, so the users can make PDF of any content type from the sites in Cyrillic.

Quote:

- In order to easily add content "out of the box" .


This means nothing - content like the default option in Baned CMS ? Wow if is this, amazing, just amazing....

Quote:

- This system allow to create all kind of menus.


Simple Menu Manager or something like Solo Menu module ?

File Manager/Image Manager ? Maybe in Alpha 5 on random pick without votes ?
Content/Blocks editor - SC, tinyMCE (yack), CK, default used in XOOPS 2.5 ?

Alpha 3 looks like Beta 1
And Final 2.6.0 around Christmas 2013 or Q2 of 2014.... (but better late, then never )

Won't mention my favorite - Sign up/in, Weight and a lot of other termins not used anywhere else except in Drupal/XOOPS 2.5/WP, which making system not only "non-user friendly" but also not understandable...

Re: XOOPS 2.6 Internationalization/Local support

Images ?
Did I've said it already, images like
Open, Save, Post, New Thread, Reply, PM etc.
should be text declaration within INI files, CSS designers will make them looking like buttons, for example SimpleMachines Forum 2.0.2

Translators are not Graphics Designers and most modules, currently existing for XOOPS 2.5.5 and lately moved to 2.6 will remain untranslated - whole interface, error messages etc. translated, but images in English - yack!

any official confirmation in which alpha stage will see INI or POT (wish is not POT selected, but will be better then existing) ?

Does anyone take the position and initiative to rewrite X 2.6 core language files ?

1. Profile must be wiped out and rewritten from scratch.
Except all bugs discovered so far in this black hole generator, there are tons of unfinished tasks.
During user registration (for English speakers is simple, I always means me (as male and/or female), but for rest languages there are 2-3 forms. There should be used/required field - Gender.
2. Joined / Registered - got 2 translations too based on Gender
2.1. Joined for male (got one translation in Bulgarian, Russian and several more languages), Joined for female - another.
3. The user based on gender:
3.1. User made %1 posts - got another translation for male and other for female
4. Time based statistics, avoiding to hard coding "ago", 5 minutes ago must be written as %1 minute ago and %1 minutes ago - there are different translation for single minute and for several minutes, also if is written into code, translation will look awful. 5 Minutes Ago is ok for US, not for the rest of the world, in Bulgarian is ago 5 minutes (well, not really with Latin alphabet, but in this order).
5. Social activities on site:
5.1. User %1 have downloaded %2, %3 time
5.1.1. User %1 have downloaded %2, %3 times
5.2 User %1 made %1 post in our forums
5.2.1. User %1 made %1 posts in our forums
and so on...
Replacing WEIGHT, STORY, DIGEST (need to download a nulled version of another US English written script, to see that this thing DIGEST is Newsletter, grrr) and few others strange words used only by hmm(censored) with local community rule/law!
Putting option for TEXT OVERRIDE for every piece of XOOPS in administration
Replacing default media/file management with Lucio's File Manager
Wiping and rewriting from scratch Blocks Administration
X25/6 is still the easiest Framework after the "most powerful, slowish, useless" J! 3.0 release. But there is a multifunctional easy to use and upgradeable Bridge plugin (www.jfusion.org), JFusion makes life easier - if u have idea to make site with the CMS, but currently the CMS don't have important feature u need such as forum (yay, X and J! don't have much options..... 1 forum per core, no choices), you can simply write plugin for the Bridging plugin and use MyBB, SMF or whatever u want.
-----
Mail Templates must be re/moved to SQL and to be made editable from Administration.
-----
Help must be moved to wiki.xoops.org
-----
(Can't wait to see redheaded Install script)
-----
After some tests during my vacation on latest CMS cores, including:
J! 3.0 Beta 1
XOOPS 2.6.0 Alpha 1
PinCore SVN
Tomato Cart 2 SVN
PresaShop 1.5 SVN

I've noticed some very funny bugs which should be avoided here.
Joomla! 3.0 works fine with GPC Magic Quotes On, but the stupid installation pre-check script prevent user to install it with On value in they're PHP.INI files.

X 2.6.0 Alpha 2, must includes option to ignore pre-check if one of the optional values such as GPC Magic Quotes is enabled or not.

PrestaShop 1.5 made a big progress in making administration easy to use, but, there is always but.

+ Single click module installation and auto-upgrade from the administration, but bcz there is lacking of MD5 or SHA1 checksum verification on modules, such installation can't be done properly, for RC2 - looking more like Alpha 2, is very disappointing result. Again... lack of coordination here, makes redheaded and wishcraft to work separately on different modules/frameworks for one simple task.

+ Making administration sorted (User tasks in one menu with several drop-down options), here as I saw users tasks are still in menus which no one expect to be there

+ TomatoCart/pincore - Windows XP still remains most used Desktop this days, and maintaining such administration style in X 2.6, will be a plus. The 2nd big advantage of this theme are the conflicts between Internet Exploder versions prior 9.0 SP1 with Ext JS library, if the user want to use Ext JS style have to switch to Firefox - and bye, bye Exploder - no more pointless threads on support forums regarding any part of the CMS which is not displayed properly thanks to damn MS Exploder.

+ "Responsive" Templates... err, themes here. Every core of the new CMSystems got one Responsive template for they're default administration/site view, which in one word - shows no difference in site/administration display on Chromium with Gentoo, Firefox with 7/8, Chrome on Android or Opera latest beta (don't remember which is latest 12.xx. beta) - http://www.newspaperwebdesign.com/node/15874

Main Dashboard of X26 should be full with statistics blocks, not with double information about installed modules. Eg. Registered Users, used system resources (specially when X is mostly used on shared hosting plans), made posts in any area - news, forums, top authors, users with most applauds or most warning and so on), why there are modules and tasks with big icons, and with small icons in header bellow menus, and again in menus.
PrestaShop 1.5 administration (if u want to see it and don't have time to install it, drop me PM) is a perfect example, how modern administration must look.

There are planed updates on TX (but still in development and tests), for GIT support for the Reviewed releases (eg, finished and reviewed for bugs translations).

X 26 Alpha 3-4, must support cURL and GiT for sync directly with translated, verified only modules, then the need of packing and listing them in several threads on forums here will gone. If Iranian (Farsi) user plans to use X26, News, NewBB, simply with one click from administration will be able to download and apply the required language files.

In past there was Lang_tool (XOOPS 2.0.18) written by Vietnamese or... can't remember right, but I'm 99% sure, he was an Asian developer, module which allows u to edit, correct, write new language files for core and any of the 3rd party installed modules, such option must exists first for the TEXT OVERRIDE option, 2nd... if the above Farsi user don't like something how looks translated to be able to correct it in the way he want for his site and needs.

....and DECISION which standard will be used, INI (1.5 or 2.5, or derivative mix of both), POT (yack, big sorry for all translators, bcz there is only 1 English native speaker as module developer, and is not Wishcraft) or PHP Define which will be a big step backward.

(In 5 days will update X Modules translations and will see if there are new core translations, just I'm still on road almost every day).

Re: XOOPS Poll 1.32 RC ready for testing

Quote:

I also noticed almost all wishcraft original and improved modules did not tested and are dangerous to use in production websites.


Until Cerberus is hired/placed on this position will be like this, even after tests and bug reports, he remain silent - The only human which don't make mistakes during codding, only users do mistakes....

I've already gave up from his modules and tomorrow will start with removal from TX, thanks for the reminder :).

Re: XOOPS 2.5.x Translations using Transifex

Just removed 3 languages from XOOPS, when you apply for a language, look if there is no existing already!

Why someone will apply for Polish - since there is already half done translation, or double Spanish and Portuguese ?

Polish creation team was denied
Spanish was removed
Portuguese was removed

Use instead
Polish (Poland)
Spanish (Spanish)
Portuguese (Brazil)

Portuguese (Portugal) is not created yet
