wf-downloads and other block "character count" restriction?

hello,
Im using wf-downloads, and am having a hard problem getting what I want out of it. Im not sure if this is a feature or limitation of official "system" modules as well....

Im using the Category Description field for some html code that will create a table with some links. My problem is that there seems to be a limit on either the amount (character count) or the space available for this field.

If I write more than 4 or 5 lines of code, it gets truncated, and I only see a part of a word or sentence appear, when I go back to edit the code, most of it is removed..
Is there a way to expand the amount of code I can fit into the description area?

Re: Customer Management and Helpdesk

perhaps.....
also, check the block settings to make sure that the group your in in has the correct access to the module and blocks.

Re: Image Manager

The image manager will allow you to upload images, and have easy access to them. There are quite a few "system" modules and other user developed modules that will take advantage of the image manager.

On your admin control panel, select Admin | Images - the rest should be easy to figure out.

Re: Customer Management and Helpdesk

I installed and briefly used ZenTrack. It lacks much of the functionality that you would expect to find in a mid-level help desk solution, however, it does perform the basics. It is free after all...

The blank page you are seeing is probably due to permissions, make sure you read the installation document thoroughly; it covers everything you need to do in order to get running.
There is also a mod you should check out called Mantis Bug Tracker.

Re: More artricles on the first page with TinyD

in the blocks/groups section. Click the "Clone" action. It will create another block, which you can then configure where you want it to appear.

Re: Changing Themes

maybe try to turn on the "Update module template .html files from themes/your theme/templates directory?"

You can find this value in SysAdmin | Preferences

Re: Customizing menus and article management

The sections module that comes with xoops2 core is very basic indeed, and will not allow the functionality that you are requesting.

The best thing to do for your situation would be to use a module called TinyD. TinyD is a hacked version of TinyContent that will allow you to create several categories, with subsections for each category, and each main category would have its own main menu structure.

One of the downsides to using TinyD is that you can not rename the folders or paths that are used.

So, a path to your CSS would be somethign like:
www.website/xoopsinstall/tinycontent and not
www.website/xoopsinstall/css

that may or may not be a big deal for you.


There is also, in my opionion, an even better module to support this type of functionality. It is called wf-sections, however it still needs a bit of work before I would use it. Check out wf-projects.com for more info.

Re: THEME - Challenge yourself

and I'd like a few strippers to show up at my door with a case of beer and pizza...



Have you checked out themes that are already available for download? Im sure there is one or two that could be easily modified to fit the look your looking for.

Re: How do you change the default forum layout?

Or.......

You could just go to your administration panel, select preferences, and change the default "Comment Display Mode" to threaded.

Then update the System Module.

I don't think this will update the users that have already signed up. I had the same problem and just sent them all a private message to change the layout in the user account profile.
