Perhaps a loaded question in this forum! I'm not looking for any Wordpress bashing.

I've just read through this post discussing Wordpress and have some questions.

A XOOPS site I have had for a couple of years is up for a re-birth and the committee responsible has put out an RFP. One of the proposals that came back suggests starting a brand new site with Wordpress.

The argument is that Wordpress has evolved to be a full CMS.

I'm not trying to start a debate, but am wondering what, if any the advantages/disadvantages of XOOPS vs Wordpress are.
Personally, I find XOOPS easy to use now, but didn't at first. Too many options and too little documentation on the finer points.

Current XOOPS site has CBB, WF-Downloads, WF-Links, and Marquee. Registration page is lengthy and detailed.

Is security comparable between the two?

The Wordpress interface seems a little more user friendly in the way plugins are installed, but does this present any concerns?

From the developer side, is it more about what you are most comfortable with rather than an objective evaluation?

Thanks.

Weird!


This isn't what I was hoping to read .

Most of the entries in sess_data are like this:
9GjEM7-zAEQewiicDdUdUe8oTTBjwibdzLuLtxJaFVmfuJ0U9TRBiuBlkZDo_l3bBcbmG3QPK72HAR8rlsMUhw..

And others are readable, like this:
protector_last_ip|s:13:"99.236.119.46";marquee_cache_bot|b:0;

The only readable lines in it right now are from protector.

I just logged in and my IP was not recorded.

This site was upgraded from the 2.2 side of things in case that could matter.

Otherwise, I am at a loss. Well, I was at a loss before, but now I don't even know what information to offer to an expert to assist me.

The data is being entered as follows except the ip is correct of course:

sess_id d3b025b72ff9d46b381c5dbb647a6833
sess_updated 1284514546
sess_ip xx.xx.xxx.154
sess_data qhdCKwPD264z1q7ANDawec-ocYUgBZ10u1fuTuHnJAN9L4wEti...

Locating defined text

I want to make some changes to error messages, re-directing messages and general text on a site. I am finding it a challenge to locate the file where the value is defined.

Is there a simple way to search for and locate the file or some rule about whether it is within a module folder or elsewhere?

For example, on logout, if I want something different than the standard "Thank you for your visit to our site." What is the easiest way to locate the file containing that text to make a change?

I can't check immediately, but will look at it again when I get home. I don't believe I am getting that entry in the table.

Does the entry occur only for registration, or whenver someone logs in?

In viewing that table, it looks that the IP is not registering when I fill in the first registration page and enter the captcha. So when I am receiving the error, looks like the data is not getting to that table.

Managed to drop the sessions table and recreate it from scratch using the working dev one as a template.

I guess it worked because I can still login to the site but new registration still not working.

I did a repair of the database.

Creating a table is not something I am comfortable with. I'll have to work on that.

There were three messages under the Extra in the debug:

Token Validation: No valid token found in request/session
Included files: 55 files
Memory usage: 3163136 bytes

Quote:
Do you have additional data (field sess_data) in your sessions table record (see your IP in sess_ip), before and after you display the register form?


I don't have the technical knowledge to know how to answer this as I don't understand the question.

I disabled all modules but the system and profile. Still the same result.

Do you think upgrading to the latest version is likely to sort the problem for me?

Thanks, but still no luck.

Custom session or not, same error.

I have a site I use for development, (dev.mysite.ca) it has 2.3.1 on it and the registration works perfectly so I think that rules out the server.

I haven't had the time to disable the modules one at a time. Will try that next.
