Clarification of the GPL

(Anyone who is really interested in licensing issues should study the GPL FAQ)

The GPL allows you to do ANYTHING with the code. You can modify it in any way, you can even sell it for as much as anyone wants to pay you. You can make modifications and keep them to yourself. You can give your modifications to a few paying customers only.

The only thing you CAN'T do is restrict anyone's rights on the code, that means whoever gets your modifications (paying or free) can use and distribute them under the terms of the GPL in any way he seems fit.

One other thing: Since XOOPS is released under the GPL (not the LGPL) and the current structure requires modules to call (include) Xoops' files, ALL MODULES are required to be released under the terms of the GPL. (Read the GPL-FAQ. There's no ambiguity or "gray" area.)

If you have trouble sending mail with SMTPAuth, find the following line near the end in xoopsmultimailer.php:
$this->User $xoopsMailerConfig['smtpuser'];


And change it to this:
$this->Username $xoopsMailerConfig['smtpuser'];

I don't know how young you are, but there was a time when all spellcheckers where "on demand" only, not "check while you write"

That being said, if you can find a good php library that can do that, along with free dictionaries for all needed languages, it should be almost like the preview, only with the unkown words marked in some way.

Good luck, and send me the code when you're done

<post size=long>
WF-Sections is IMHO the best "Sections" in Xoops, plus the WYSIWYG editor and file-uploader are major selling points.

As I see it, the XOOPS sections module hasn't changed much in Xoops2, so most people who use WFS now will want to use it with xoops2. I have 2 websites that I cannot upgrade to Xoops2 without WFS-support.

Also, Xoops2 is - as even its authors say - not ready for production websites. Plus a lot of production websites depend on addon modules and cannot upgrade until all modules they need are available for Xoops2. Some never will.

Conclusion: Module authors, especially for important modules used in production websites (I think "Babe-a-day" is nothing mission-critical for most websites ) should not abandon the 1.3.x versions. Many of their users might not upgrade to Xoops2 for quite some time.

Hopefully it will not take too long before the documentation of the Xoops2 Core API is finished. That should make life much easier for module authors, especially if their modules are more than simple scripts with a "header.php" and "footer.php" slapped on...

(Maybe we should try and incorporate the ideas behind WF-Section into the Xoops-Sections? Might be worthy of collaboration once I get through my current documentation work...)
