Hi Catzwolf,
Thanks for all your hard work on WF-Section. I've used it in the past and think it's a nice embellishment to the standard sections module.


Many thanks I love working on this module and the way it has grown in the last 2-3 months has amazed me (partly because I am new to php myself) and the fact that I still have many ideas I would like to add.

I think that most XOOPS users have the intention of moving to X2 whenever possible, particularly when many things (like v1.3.* themes) will soon be deprecated.


I must admit that themes I do not have a problem with, if you know html/CSS (As I do) then in reality Xoops2 will give you freedom to express yourself now, without the hassle of say designing a full blown site. (Which, I do know about! :LOL:)

Quote:
Unfortunately, it also seems that most v1.3.8 modules need considerable tweaking in order to work properly in X2, particularly to incorporate smarty templates. I can't speak for others, but I would be much more interested in an X2 version of WF-Section - partly so I can learn what changes to make on some of the other modules in order to get them to work with X2. Thanks again!


Well I can say the one reason I have not moved my own site to XOOPS 2, is that I use so many customised scripts and modules and also many of the other modules are not yet V2, it maybe that some of them will never be. (WF included).

Never had/seen a reason to use smarty before, played around with it and I never seen a use for it, TBH XOOPS v2 could have used a template system without it (but lol).

So it will be interesting to see how to implement/work with it in WF-Sections myself.

I am now not sure whether to continue you with the XOOPS v1 module now, as it seems that all that work may now be in vain (as you say most will be moving on shortly) and it maybe a good enough reason for me too!

Many thanks for your answer

Re: WF-Section V1 just about completed!

I know many of you have ported to XOOPS v2 and playing with that, but I did expect some sort of feed back on this!

Ok, am I wasting my time with this version of WF-Section and should I just move straight to a XOOPS V2?

WF-Section V1 just about completed!

Just a note to say that WF-Section v1 (Xoops v3.8) will be due for release within the next week or so, and then I will be converting it to work on XOOPS v2 (Yes it does work on v2).

New features for WF-Section v1

Uploadmangement (Total new way dealing with files, you can use a image/file from anywhere on the server, without breaking it when you change directory config) and you can delete or rename them. (Killed the blank images for once and for all! )

Multiple uploads at once

User Submit article feature (With Html or XOOPS editor) and submitted articles are added to the waiting contents block, and added a new 'WF submitted' block.

Auto approve submitted articles, add expire date, change created date and the original created date can be retained.

Rate Articles.

Report broken downloads.

Added Top Ten and Popular links in the main menu,

Can choose the order display for each article (just like downloads etc).

You can choose to display articles, links, section images (sizeable), rated, votes etc

Images for new, updated and popular articles have been added.

External links can be given pseudo name (instead of using a 90 letter url )

NOTE: Can now add your own HTML pages wrapped into the WF-Section article and will look like part of WF-Section.

And I am in the process of finishing off the 'real' pages (instead of the stupid [page break] feature.

Other changes include cleaned up code, html and many small bug fixes (will give proper list when ready for download).

The XOOPS V2 version will have scripts to convert NSections, Sections etc to WF-Section.

Any Request for this last WF-Section for XOOPS 1? This is the time to do it as I will not be working on this XOOPS version after it is released!

Re: Streaming Audio Mod

Thanks for the info m8

I am sure that this info can be used to have streaming audio embedded into your webpages with some ease, I believe this can be used for other media? Such as mp3 or WMA files?

Re: WFSection

You need to cmod all the files in the config directory to atleast 666 or 777.

Give that a try and let me know ok!
