Re: Number of pms on server

There is currently no way to do that within the XOOPS Admin.

You need to use 3rd party software like phpMyAdmin and check the xoops_priv_msgs table of the site DB.

Re: Should I use Xoops?

XOOPS can do most of those things. Or to be honest, most CMS can do most of those things.

I'm not sure about movabletype, although I've seen wordpress and other blogs ported to XOOPS.

Re: Changing the look of register.php/ any help pretty please :)

If you really want to know , the registration form is found in include/registerform.php.

Another way to manage the timezone 'space' is to decrease the text included in it. The file to edit is language/english/timezone.php. For my site, I just included 1 or 2 of the more common countries instead of having it listing about 4-5.

The way around this is for theme builders to start with XOOPS default template and carefully work around it to maintain complete compatibility with XOOPS core, third party mods and hacks.

Thanks for this observation. I am happy to tell you that the Documentation Team is working on a document that dissects the default theme. It is now in its final draft and might be released to the public soon.

Re: Comments on forum.

I think instead of hijacking or pulling data into NewBB, the script developed should be 'pushing' data into NewBB. A one-click procedure within the News Module could just extract the title, the lead paragraphs into the NewBB tables. This script can then be ported to other modules.

Re: How do you install a module?

Just remember the structure of the module folders: <xoops_root_path>/modules/<module_folder>/<module_files>

Some modules may be packaged to be installed on the root directory, especially those that need some changes in some other files, while some need a module folder created before it can be uploaded.

Most modules come with a readme file. But if not, if you know the directory structures of the modules, and the downloaded module, you should be fine.

Re: 'Read More' Link under news items

Thanks Mithrandir. so if I was to put a short description to the news item in the normal entry field then put the full storie in the extended text feild that would give me the read more link to bring up the full story?

This is technically correct. However, the first box is supposed to be for the article's leading paragraph(s) and the second box for the rest of the article. When you click on the 'read more...' link, the leading paragraph and the rest of the article gets displayed.

Still, you can use that one for short descriptions of the article if you don't mind it being included in the top part of the whole article.

Just added information, the Soapbox module has an extra box for article teasers that is not included in the rest of the article.

In the old site, I created an alternative set of templates to which I've made various changes. Can I transfer them to the new XOOPS install? What about the modules templates?

If you are talking about cloned templates, they should be inside the DB. The module templates in the folders are the original ones. If you used the Admin CPanel to make and save changes, you may need to extract the templates from within the old DB. Unless, of course, you were able to download the cloned templates before you erased the files.

Re: Trouble with blocks

I'm having some trouble with blocks. I tried to edit the Who's Online block by FTP but nothing happened so I thought that it might be a good idea making a custom one.

If you are doing this by FTP, you were probably editing the original template files. You would not see any changes because the template HTML codes are called from the DB. You need to edit them from within the Admin Control Panel.

Another thing is that I can't add any other blocks except the ones that we're already visible.

Use Block Administration (Sys Ad -> Blocks) to edit behavior and display of blocks. Use the Groups Administration (Sys Ad -> Groups) to set which group can access which block.

Check out these links:

By the the way, does anyone know how I can remove the 'submit news' thing for unregistered users?

I think this has been answered in previous threads. Try to do a search on this.
