ello ~

I came to know about XOOPS after wasting my money at a clone of XOOPS called PHP Myspace Gold from popscripts.com. The aim was to build a community website, and php myspace had some kool features (obviously I didn't know it was a clone then).

So anyway I have been working on making one on xoops. I am not a pro programmer, and I started learning php\mysql after installing XOOPS on my website.

Now I have finally created something by combining different features from myspace\orkut\phpizabi and facebook. I am attaching some of the snaps below.

Profile Home Page for Not Registered Member i.e. userinfo.php

Friends (from XOOPS myfriends module)

Edit Profile

A summary of this script is:
- You can add\delete friends (from myfriends module)
- Write them comments (from xtremeguestbook)
- Privacy: You can choose who is allowed to view your profile e.g. you can only allow your friends to write you a comments, or you can allow every body to write you a comment. Others options would be: you can choose who can view your friends, comments and pictures.
- You can get notification when someone adds you as a friend, or when someone writes you a comments (later on: when some one writes you a pm and you get a new notification in your XOOPS notification thing)
- You can create a complete profile of your own with your liking and disliking and match making questions. (Later on this will be used to search members with common interest)
- Myspace type page (This has been disabled though). Before (as you can see in the news article - link pasted below -) users were able to choose a b\g pic and colors of their own while for their page.

if you want to play with the features you can gohttp://www.hotxpot.com/userinfo.php?uid=2

Although the script is complete, but its more like a php script and not a XOOPS script. I am not very familiar with XOOPS syntaxes and many of its functions. A number of people have asked me to make this available for them to download. So the question is:


Is anyone interested in giving this script a shape module for XOOPS so that the rest of the community can benefit from this aswell.


If you are interested, I can send you the files and can assist you with any question you might have. Or perhaps we can create a new project on dev.xoops.com.


(Note: I have posted an article regarding this as well in YAXS section, but I have made some changes.)

I'll also recommend using one of the many XOOPS weblinks modules.

First create a file changeperm.php with the following code :

<?php chmod("mainfile.php"0444?>


This file, changeperm.php, should be located in the same directory that contains mainfile.php. In my case it would be sumthing like this -> /home/my_user_name/public_html/HERE. And I can access my XOOPS site viahttp://www.mywebite.com.

Second step is to run\execute this file, and you do so by going to the websitehttp://www.mywebsite.com/changeperm.php. You only have to do it once.


Another example of file location would be: /home/my_user_name/public_html/myxooops_site/HERE. In this case I can access my XOOPS site viahttp://www.mywebsite.com/myxoops_site and so on. However in this case I would gotohttp://www.mywebsite.com/myxoops_site/changeperm.php to excute.

I hope this will help.

Theres always something new to learn, thank you for the post.

Snow77 can you go over this again, please?
Quote:
templates > blocks. Save your modified system_block_login.html in YourThemeFolder > modules > system > blocks > system_block_login.html. This will make your modified template stay in your theme folder and take effect by template overriding and later on when you upgrade your XOOPS in the future and overwrite your core files you won't lose your modification because it's in your theme folder.



This scheme will allow us to choose themes (via the theme block) with each theme having its own set of templates that are located under /chosentheme/modules/XXXX/Xxxxtemp? So In other words, each theme will have it own set of templates.


Also, wassup with the templates option in admin>pref. Those are MySQL based templates, if I am not mistaken. Which leads to another question, can we possibly create templates for every theme so that the template gets to be choosen when a user choose from a selection of theme. I havn't seen any such option, all I can see is the 'default template option'.


I used to think wonder if there was a way to do so. Am I getting this right?


Thank you

btw I am using XOOPS 2.0.16

I agree with you catz ~

But I thought we were about to get on the right path, and did we not just appointed new project leader and team members? I wasn't around lately, so I am not sure.

But in any case I agree with you cent percent !

It is a little unclear to me aswell.

Quote:
I add some settings about when I want to send my site notifacations


What do you mean by that? Are you talkin about the notification block - like for example in a module, at the bottom of the page there are options of notifying the user [who is browsing that module] to be notified when a new post\new article\new stuff is added to that module.

What do you mean you say:
Quote:
I want to send my site notifacations



and what do you mean byQuote:

( all ok ) but 1 or 2 days next, the settings are lost automatically.


What settings are lost?

What is your website and does it happen to all the users or just happens with you - the admin?

Thank you for this post, i was looking for it aswell. May be in the next release of XOOPS they should consider having this option in the admin panel.

Sometimes I feel like XOOPS is more like a linux cms, compared to other MS Windows types cms. What I mean is that, MS Windows is for sure easy to use, every thing is there infront of you, and you can click click click and boom - your are done. CMS like joomla and drupal fall in that category (though I havn't used these cms much, I could be wrong). However XOOPS is more complex and yet more powerful, you need to hack it to get the most out of it.

Stupid analogy?

But Hey, I am just being little creative like skenow said ;)

Very helpful indeed.
