(Just quick seaches provided for your convenience)

Heh! Yeah, I read the newbb - feature part, just trying to ensure that basic items - items sorely needed for some time - weren't forgotten with whistles and bells. I mean - that one feature alone will unclutter so many sites that have had no other choice but slap up the recent topics block as a way for the users to be able to follow threads.

Interesting that newbb isn't core anymore.... will this open up the ability to use of 3rd party forums (with the next release) without having to alter core files?

Inbox Quota:
https://xoops.org/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=10955&forum=7#forumpost44002

Notifications / PM's I kind of lump together since they all end up in the inbox - streamlined might not be the best wording on it. Regardless, there needs to be a size/amount limit put on these. For example, the xoops_priv_msgs table on my site is starting to compete with the size of the forums . I've recently gone through and pruned over 20 pages of them - just notifications for new topics, new files, etc. I've had to resort to turning off the notifcation feature for everything but forums, and if i could find that, it would be off. Anyway, another basic should of been included - sorely needed item - that needs to be implemented. Ala invision board, phpbb, or how the others out there do it.

Avatars:

https://xoops.org/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=9357&forum=10#forumpost41995

Again, standard among the others out there - but for some reason XOOPS wants a large uploads folder

Autologin - It's a gaping hole in XOOPS - but not the others out there?

I've followed GIJoe's threads. He's done some fine work on setting it up - testing vulnerabilities, etc.

I just wonder what the problem is then? If others can incorporate it within the product without exposing vulnerabilities...? Is the message XOOPS is only secure while you're sitting in front of it? It's a feature that webmasters and users request daily - shouldn't there be a better solution on the horizon?

I've read the third edition of the XOOPS letter updating the different aspects of xoops. Nice read, whistles and bells are neat, but where's the basic meat?

What I'm talking about specifically is:

Forums - When should we expect to see basic functions like "mark all read" etc., to be included?

Notifications - What's the progress on these? i.e., streamlined and some type of size quota per user.

Avatars - When should we expect to have the option of having users avatars being remotely hosted?

Auto Login - When will the method be implemented and on by default?

Again, the newsletter was nice - like it - nice edition. But the above things are things that we see someone asking about everyday on the forums here. So, what's the scoop?

Might peek at this as well

It's not the mother of all theme making guides, but it should give you a idea.

Think it's two parts

Make sure you have the template loaded, and selected...

and it's been so long since i looked at that theme (think that was one of the ones that was in DB then back out) anyway, the news template isn't correct - oops!

Check site in sig and i should have a fix (for the news) posted within the day.

Guessing on whatcha want -

1.Make a custom block (scroll to bottom of blocks) and put some gibberish as a welcome, etc.

or

2. admin > system > preferences > general settings > set start page to news.

Sorry, you don't have the permission to access this area.
If the page does not automatically reload, please click here


My guess is you need to go to blocks, and set the blocks to show on sides (l & r) on the forums page ...?
