Re: New Web Host

Check this FAQ on site migration and let us know if you get stuck.

You should not need to install XOOPS again, just copy the files, import the database (if you do it through the control panel and it is of the same type as the one your old host had, I'd put my money on that - but any of the database dumps should do) and finally modify mainfile.php in your XOOPS root to reflect the new url, path and/or MySQL connectivity information

Remember to set cache, templates_c and uploads directories (with subdirectories) writeable by the webserver and when you are done with the mainfile.php, set it to be read-only.

Merry Christmas

It's that time of year again and I'm off to see the wizar... I mean... off to see my parents.

From everybody at Cusix Software (read: Me, myself and I):
Take care, don't blow up XOOPS, xoops.org or yourselves while I'm gone and have a very merry Christmas.

Imagine a lot of images of christmas trees, ribbons, candy and presents - I'm in a bit of a hurry

Re: same page appears for anon and reg --

Actually, it seems that dizzymarkus is simply taking the group filter drop-down in blocks administration as a group permission selector.

It is a common mistake, but it does not affect who can view what, it only filters the view of those blocks that are visible to one group or another. If you have many blocks with some visible to anonymous and some visible to registered users, it is easy to lose the overview. Therefore you can choose only to list those that are visible to one group - however, changing visibility will be for all groups.

If you want certain blocks visible only to anonymous and not to registered users, you will have to edit the group in groups management, checking and unchecking the blocks in question.

Re: adding xoops to our site and SEO concerns

I'd like to help with your enquiries, but I must admit that I am at a loss as to what you expect XOOPS to be and how you are thinking about using it.

As I read it (and I may be wrong - just so that you understand how I perceive it) you want to use XOOPS, but not the XOOPS theme and not Smarty templates. You also want to have a specific method of inputting content, so what's left? I have trouble seeing exactly why you are even considering XOOPS (very happy that you do, of course, but puzzled) as I would assume that there are other frameworks out there, that are more suitable for you - frameworks that do not deal with output, for example, but only with giving developers backend functionality such as DB access, file uploading, user management, etc. on which you can build.

I'm intrigued

Re: php5 public/private methods, pros cons

Security? Not in the traditional sense of security against malicious hackers.

Private/protected does ensure that the particular method or attribute cannot be used outside the class/child classes and it can help make sure that it is only called by your code or by code that extends your code.

For example (don't know how appropriate), since we want the vars on a XoopsObject to go through setVar() or getVar(), we could make the $vars attribute private in the XoopsObject class. Anyone wanting to change or retrieve an attribute will have to go through setVar() and getVar() and we should be safe from rogue code modifying attributes directly (and potentially incorrectly). Of course, this particular "problem" can also be solved with __get() and __set() methods.

Re: CMS selection

It depends on what is meant with the term "Support ZIP archives" - what should XOOPS support here? "Upload a ZIP archive to publish on the web" means what, exactly?

Regarding workflow, the XOOPS module structure leaves a lot of autonomy to the modules, giving flexibility in exchange for looser structured content. Therefore it is up to the individual modules to grant the user a workflow (I suspect you mean something along the lines of someone submitting content, another one publishing it) - which is a rather established feature in most modules, but not centralised as in several other systems. It's the same with a "trash bin" - since content is not centralised, it is also not easy to have a centralised "trash bin" to gather deleted content for re-evaluation or purge.

XHTML compliance again depends on the modules. It is definitely possible to create XHTML valid sites with XOOPS, but individual modules can break this compliance if they are not coded properly.

i need the URL to be at the root level (e.g. "XOOPS_ROOT/advertising", not "XOOPS_ROOT/modules/advertising").

Any other suggestions?

Thanks again!

Mod_rewrite, if using Apache webserver.

Re: Post Approval/ Posting to multiple sites.

Generally cross-several-sites management is not XOOPS' strong point. It is possible, of course, but will most likely involve some quite custom coding.

Re: Table in News module

note that usually newlines are turned into <br /> - whether inside a HTML element or not, so

<table>
<
tr>
<
td>something</td>
</
tr>
</
table>

will have several linebreaks above "something"

It is cumbersome to manage, but the way it could be done is by having it all on one line:
<table><tr><td>something</td><td>something else</td></tr></table>
