copied from http://wfsections.xoops2.com

First of all, I would like to give my apologies to everyone for what seems my sudden and rather harsh decision to depart
from Xoops, but the truth be known, this has been on the cards for the last few months now and I feel it is now time
for me to depart and move away now.

I have come to a stage where I do not believe in the direction that XOOPS is taking now and I cannot ignore this
anymore. What was once in my eyes a clear path forward as become nothing but a farce and I have become disillusioned in its
purpose and I do not see this changing.

Just over a year ago, Herko, Neon and I started X-Mode with the aim of taking module development a bit further and
giving developers a central point to develop and distribute their modules. The idea was adopted by XOOPS and at
that time I believed I was apart of something constructive and that would in the end be a benefit to the whole of the
Xoops Community.

These ideas have changed the face of XOOPS over the last six months, in whole, they are essential to the development,
growth and long term stability of what is a an excellent piece of software and I hope that XOOPS gains the stature
that it deserves with the rest of the CMS world.

The initial aim of the module development team was to take the current core module and bring these up to the standards
of the core, in such a way that they used many of the core functions and classes and then, to build those modules on
from there. I personally, believe that just a handful of very talented developers would have sufficed for this
purpose and thus lead by example for other module developers to follow. Well, this has not happened.

I feel that many of the issues regarding module development, which should have been discussed and settled many months
ago, have still not been resolved and it seems to me that there is still a long way off actually being put into place.
To me every stage needs strong foundations to help support the next stage of development and this is clearly not the
case here.

Personally, I feel that a lot more should have been produced than there already has been in the last six months.
I have to give credit to Predator and his team for the excellent progress and development they are making with the
forum (I always said that this would keep you busy). But, apart from that, I have seen nothing to write home about
regarding the rest of the core modules. Personally, I believe if some developers spent as much time writing code as
they did answering non-descript posts in the forums, then things may have been different.

I just feel now that the module development team is setting itself up to fail, and I can no longer just stand there
and watch this happen.

I just think that it is so F**KING ironic that it takes a non-developer like Hsalazar ( No disrespect meant here) to
show everyone how it's done! Well done m8 I think what you have done is utterly fantastic, keep it up.

So on that note, I would like to say a big thank-you to all those people who have in one way or another have contributed
towards all the WF modules, the list is long and you will know who you are.

To the XOOPS Community for making me feel at home with their warmth and sincerity.

To those in the development world core/modules/themes, who have helped me and taught me a lot over the last two years.

Many Thanks

ATB

Is it possible to place PHP code/script into a NEWS module posting that would display a random image from a pre-defined location?

Something similar to the agenda-x random image script for wjue's calendar program.

Thanks.

Xoops Marketing (ie Branding)

Are there any members out there creating a common strategy to market/brand the XOOPS name & product? I remember seeing someones AVATAR 'Xoops Inside', the mascot that was introduced around Xmas time 'Xoopster' and a great box art prototype from Chapi. Wouldn't it be a good idea to organize some sort of group to look after this?

Mozilla has the dinosaur, OpenOffice the birds, Apache the feather & XOOPS the ??????

Just thinking out loud & with some time to kill.....

Here is a copy of the cleanup.php code I used from the Gallery website. Works like a charm....

<font size=+2>
Gallery Cleanup Script
</font>
<
p>
Because Gallery runs as part of the webserverany files it creates
are owned by the webserver process
.  If you want to modify those
files yourself
you need to get the webserver to change the permissions
on them so that you have access
.  That's what this script is for.
Simply enter the path to your albums directory below and this script
will make every file in that path (that it can access) writable
by everybody.  Then, you can do whatever you want to the files.
</font>

<p>

Path (on your filesystem) to a file or directory to fix?
<br>
<font size=-1>(examples: /home/~you/public_html/albums, /usr/www/htdocs/albums)</font>
<br>
<form>
<input name=dir>
<input type=submit value="Go!">
</form>

<?

if ($dir) {
    echo "<hr>";
    fix($dir);
}

function fix($obj) {
    if (is_dir($obj)) {
        status("Directory: ", $obj);
        if ($fd = opendir($obj)) {
            while (($child = readdir($fd)) != false) {
                if (!strcmp($child, ".")) {
                    continue;
                }

                if (!strcmp($child, "..")) {
                    continue;
                }

                $fullpath = "$obj/$child";
                fix($fullpath);
            }
            chmod($obj, 0777);
        } else {
            error("Error reading dir", $obj);
        }
    } else if (is_file($obj)) {
        print "File: <b>$obj</b><br>";
        chmod($obj, 0666);
    }
}

function status($msg, $obj) {
    print "$msg: <b>$obj</b><br>";
}

function error($msg, $obj) {
    print "<font color=red>$msg: <b>$obj</b></font><br>";
}

?>

Thanks JackJ,
I have already tried that option myself, but was looking for a cleaner way (re:hack) of updating my user AVATARs from their info page when I (admin) do a search. I do not want the users to have this ability.

I tried editing the xoopsmembers_searchresults.html template, but it only ended up changing my AVATAR and not the user I was changing.

Is it possible to allow the ADMIN to upload an AVATAR for a user in the system/find user form? Currently it only allows an administrator to edit and delete an account.

Thanks in advance.
