hi!
My simple opinion about XOOPS is that I "hate" the link names: everything is about /modules/wfchannel/ /xoopsmembers /xoopspartners can these links be renamed?



Postnukers consider the XOOPS URL's as an advantage: http://forums.postnuke.com/index.php? ... c&t=40453&highlight=xoops

There is a module called "short URL" but I don't use it.

Well then why are you using XP? ...


Oh, that is another question. These choices have nothing to do with my vision on a perfect world.

I use Windows XP because I am "lazy". I think Linux is a lot better but any office or education institute I know uses Microsoft's software. I do not want to invest time in using a different system at home.

And how did I choose for XOOPS? Well, I knew what I wanted to do with my website. I installed both Postnuke and XOOPS and experimented which one was more comfortable. I had a look at the modules and XOOPS had more modules. One of my requirements was multilinguality.

I considered Mambo briefly but at that time it had just split between Mambo and Joomla. As an outsider, I did not have the information to find out if this was healthy developer community. This is quite essential: I do not create a website to recreate it in a few years but I like to improve it continously. For a user, a healthy community of developers is some indication that the website can be updated in the future. I think the Object Oriented nature of XOOPS and Postnuke allows these communities to adsorb more ideas and improvements.

I did not look at graphics before choosing for XOOPS.

But like any human being, I'm making choices without having all the information I want and that was certainly true for when I choose a portal/cms system.

Re: E-mail address on the "Contact us" form

I'm running a newer XOOPS version but perhaps it is still the same:

1) Go to Administration Menu > System configuration > Preferences > General Settings

2) Change Admin e-mail address

PS: updating is not too hard.

Agree.

However aren't we officially in the broadband age now? If I remember correctly, wasn't 2005 the year that the majority of the surfers were on broadband? Just curious but I wonder how many sites are still catering to the dialups?

I look at it as any type of technology, keep up or be left behind. I think the same thinking can be applied here. It's like the old saying, "You can make the greatest buggy whips.....".

Don't get me wrong m0nty, I think you know I hold you in high regard. I'm just trying to toss another view point out there.


Technology does not have a unilateral direction that can be labeled 'foreward'. That denies the level of human choice. Using more bandwidth should be a result of a cost-benefit analysis. Most surfers do not want to be impressed by eg flashy websites but simply want the information they are looking for.

In a perfect world, my website should be browsable by a $100 dollar laptop.

Re: phpsitemapsNG troubleshooting

Here is my slow respons...

I've been experimenting for quite a while. In order to separate the problem of phpsitemapsNG from some general problem of my site I installed a number of other modules in the phpdebug mode. I used models that should not cause any problems like the headlines module. Sometimes I had to delete some tables but I was not able to find the common denominator of the problems that occurred. But then, having installed the headlines module one more time I noticed that most problems had disappeared like snow on a Brazilian beach. I probably will never discover what caused these problems but they are over now.

I installed phpsitemapsNG again and this time it seems to work almost fine. One problem however remained: the XOOPS version of phpsitemapsNG does not save my settings, my non-Xoops installation does. As I am the only one with this problem, I'll wait untill the next version (I have a non-xoops phpsitemapNG anyway). If more people have this problem, I can share information with those who want to make a new version.

Re: phpsitemapsNG troubleshooting

Thanks for your advise and thanks for the promotion of Brazil's export:

Resized Image

I now suspect that the problem dates from before installing the Xoopsversion of phpsitemapsNG as the bugs were related to XOOPS Statistics 0.60. Installing a new module only made them visible. I remember vagely that I accedentely used a wrong sequence when I followed the update manual of the statistics module. Everything looked normal after updating it so I did not care until I saw that the error messages of phpsitemaps were all related to XOOPS Stats

Anyway, I removed XOOPS Stats and installed pnpsitemapsNG again which -at first sight- seemed to work normally now. However, I got a whole series of eror warnings when crawling. Most but not all of them were related to phpsitemapsNG:

Again, I suspect that phpsitemapsNG is not the problem as the non-xoops version of it is running perfectly. Besides, XOOPS Stats did not install again as some table was already present. Making this a beginners question: what should I do next? Or better: for what information should I search as I did not have any bugs before?

Re: Stupid question?

Adding my stupid question:

Using the news module as your startpage has a disadvantage: the initial URL will be yourdomain.com/modules/news/ instead of yourdomain.com

I've tried to put the news module in a block that was only visible in the startpage. The 4 blocks of News do not give a satisfactory result. Next attempt: I created a custom block. I used the template of the template news_index.html. This unfortunately did not work: it did not show the news.

So, what is the secret of presenting the news in a block while reaching the same lay-out as the newsmodule?

Re: multi language

I do not know anything about Chinese characters, but I suggest you take a look at the XOOPS Multilanguages from Smartfactory.

XOOPS, a national interest of Brazil!

Having seen the ease by which my husband created his website with XOOPS, I wanted one too! But it became a hell of a job creating this website: XOOPS.org was down and we could not find all the information we wanted.

Although we are still working on this website, it is time to show the world that XOOPS is a national interest of Brazil! Http://www.donabrasil.com is a website on Brazil, Brazilian culture and the Brazilian way of life!

Our next projects are:

- adding Portuguese content (but I'm still thinking about the formula, especially regarding the audience: should it focuss on Brazilians abroad or non-Brazilian lusofones? The current content in English and Dutch is really for non-Brazilians interested in Brasil)
- adding more content in general but especially recipes.
- testing the platform

Thanks for the people who brought XOOPS.org back on-line!
