Re: Newbbex - Forum Module

Hi,

I don't think that you losed your forums.
Use something to edit your mySql database and you
will find your datas, something like phpmyadmin for example.

Once you will see your datas, backup them, uninstall and reinstall the modules.

Hi,

I also had problems using this new forum.

What problems ?

Quote:

I'm not sure if I read the readme file, but I think my fear was if the writened messages could be erased copying the module files into the XOOPS Core forum.

Sorry I don't understand

Bye,
Hervé

Re: Newbbex - Forum Module

Hi,

I am the author of this modified version.
Did you created some forums ?
This module is based on the original XOOPS forum so there should be no problems.

Hi,

Good to hear that you like XOOPS

I even love it !

1) Not enough documentation
Yep, true. People hard at work at this

From France we are also working on this subjet. A member of the XOOPS French Forum have began a documentation for modules developpers.


Quote:

2) It's not easy to modify the User and General menus
That is also true. Also people working on this

VERY NICE !

Quote:

3) The download module is only a "diretory" module. It lacks a download part

Don't you mean upload part?

Yes, sorry for the mistake.

Quote:

That's in the RC1 of MyDownloads.

Can it be used somewhere ?

Quote:

It's also not just a directory module - you can link to off-site files, too.

Yes sure but I think that, except the XOOPS sites, "we" use this module to give a reference to "our" programs.

Quote:

4) You can't give some particular rights to ONE person, you have to usee groups. By the way, is it true that a user can be member of one group only ?

It is NOT true that a user can only be member of one group. You can assign an arbitrary number of groups to one member and gradually add permissions to each group, which combined will give permissions to all areas, the user needs to have.

Yes I agree, You can add a user to as many groups as you want but we, some guys from XOOPS France, have made a test. Create a user and assign it to two groups :
The first group CAN login when the site is down
The second group CAN'T login when the site is down

Change your site to "off" and try to log with this user...

Quote:

5) You need a robust server or it will be too slow, even with the cache.

Slow? That hasn't been the usual message from users.

With a computer who's processor is lower or equal than 700 Mhz, I had some problems.


Quote:

6) You can't use LDAP or a Windows authentification like the one proposed by NT servers. I succed to do it (to use NT authentication) but it was really really hard !

There have been some hacks about LDAP, but I agree, it is not a simple task

Will it be in the new versions ?


Quote:

7) You can't share the users database with some other sites.

I've heard of people succeeding in sharing databases with other XOOPS sites.

Me too, but I will love not to hear but to see.


Quote:

10) You can't position a blocks (horizontally) over ALL the others.

I'd like a general horizontal area above all other blocks but below banners.

Me too !


Quote:

11) Two (runing and serious) modules are missing :
a) a syndication module (yes I know xp-syndication)
b) a newsletter module

I don't know syndication... so can't say if that is a seriously missing module (it isn't to me, at least)

It will be great to have a "general" module wich will be able to pick, for example, last forums posts, last articles etc and publish them to an XML file for RSS.

Quote:

Newsletter module - yup... that could be goodie.

That could be VERY nice...

Thanks again for your answers.

I hope not to have been unpleasant by giving my opinion

Bye,
Hervé

Re: Is XOOPS used for business applications?

Hi,

I am using XOOPS for two intranets, sorry, I will not be able to see you some screen shots as those web sites are confidentials. And I will use it with 2 other intranets.

Here is the list of problems I had :

1) Not enough documentation
2) It's not easy to modify the User and General menus, now I know how.
3) The download module is only a "diretory" module. It lacks a download part. Many people used this kind of module to present files availables on their own site
4) You can't give some particular rights to ONE person, you have to usee groups. By the way, is it true that a user can be member of one group only ?
5) You need a robust server or it will be too slow, even with the cache. (I had some surprises with this).
6) You can't use LDAP or a Windows authentification like the one proposed by NT servers. I succed to do it (to use NT authentication) but it was really really hard !
7) You can't share the users database with some other sites. In my case, the two sites have the same users.... What a pity ! I have two databases to maintain.
8) A groupware module is missing, a module to share files, to speak to.... Stop, YES I know ws-project. Test it, try it and you will see.
9) You can't position blocks with precision
10) You can't position a blocks (horizontally) over ALL the others.
11) Two (runing and serious) modules are missing :
a) a syndication module (yes I know xp-syndication)
b) a newsletter module

Despite all those problems, I am using and loving Xoops. I will even soon publish two new modules for it.
It's "just" the problems I had with it.

But the positive points and list is longer than this one !
Be sure of this...

PS : Sorry for my poor english.

Bye,
Hervé
