Re: XoopsGallery2 "Database Setup" troubles



Debaser description in Modules repos says:

Debaser is a multimedia module for XOOPS. Any kind of multimedia files can be displayed / played if an appropriate player is available.
Features:

Permission system
Plays any kind of multimedia
New admin interface
Assigning file types to players
Categories with unlimited subcategories
Use of getid3-class
Pre-selected players

Looks like June 12, 2010 (5 years ago) was the latest "final" release here

I tried this at that time (2.5.?) and recalled that among other things, it did not retain or properly access urls of sites with streaming content after configuring them.

Re: Shoutbox 5.01 module not accessible

1. How did the user(s) for the self created group create the custom group?

2. In the block admin gui, click on the "Edits" icon for your Shoutbox block.

Do you see your custom group listed within the group permissions box?
Is your custom group selected (highlighted)?

Normally items highlighted here should mirror the states of the block select check boxes as configured in the group permissions admin gui (for each group).

Re: Shoutbox 5.01 module not accessible

Quote:
in the area where the posted chats are supposed to be, there is my Xoops website like an iframe


Private messaging, Shoutbox and the obsolete xoopschat all like to use that background image which unfortunately requires a hack to remove. I have never run into a situation where these images in blocks did not stick out like a sore thumb.

I just installed SB5.0.1, dragged the block into the right column, opened the blocks edit dialog and selected admin and registered users (as opposed to setting in group permissions as you did). Logged on as both and was able to successfully shout back and forth with no problem.

Shoutbox footer displays:

"Powered by xuups"

Re: Group Moding Private Messaging and Whos Online Modules

Quote:
Those sound like Module issues and not core issues...


Yes, but they are special modules, they are default distribution modules, including System module.

A case in support of:

One scammer using the name Rita Benson from Nigeria was able to freely navigate and contact various users on my site, and attempted to lure them into fraudulent investment activity. This required time for users to complain, then for the matter to be investigated, and then for Rita to be shut down.

If the users were in their own PM/Whos group containers as they wanted to be, Rita would have found a very limited attack surface.

In addition, users had no provision to blacklist and subsequently block such unwanted users (they asked me how to).

Re: xoops Compatibility with Mobile / mobile friendly !!

I concur, just add mobile user agent detection and switching and you're in business.

Re: Group Moding Private Messaging and Whos Online Modules

Since 2.6 represents a significant coding transformation, I am raising this flag again to point out that it makes no sense to include group permissions on every module, and to leave PM and whose online limited to all groups only.

What point is there in setting people up with their own group based exclusivity (i.e. family only, a church group, charity organization etc) when XOOPS permits any other user in any other group to:

1 initiate/carry out communication with any other member in any other group.

2 see/monitor what any other member in any other group is online, and what they are doing.

Despite the fact most modules provide group permissions, but the main communication and online status methods do not, XOOPS will remain limited as a single community option.

Since 2.6 is to be applauded to have already have acted on the bcrypt reccomendation, the above issues seem to have gone to the wayside.

Re: Url rewrite in XOOPS 2.5.8

And your reasoning as to why this will attract more users is?

Re: xoops Compatibility with Mobile / mobile friendly !!

The ratio of XOOPS (11,529) versus WordPress (74,652,825) sites on the web is 6475:1 in favor of Wordpress, so the simple math justifies the results you see in Google webmaster tools. (exact dates of surveys unknown).

XOOPS has a Wordpress powered module called xpressme, that was being maintained as of 2012-2013, that if still maintained, would provide Wordpress presence in XOOPS installations.

Re: xoops Compatibility with Mobile / mobile friendly !!

Your not alone, everyone here would like to see Xoops mobile.

XoopsFrance came up with what was the first mobile compatible theme, but they dropped the ball.

But then again France built two huge helo carriers under contract for $1.2 Billion for Russia, refuses to deliver them, and will probably take them out to sea so their shipbuilders can watch as they sink them instead.

As was just announced under the News column, the 2.6 presentation layer has just begun. This is a good time for such issues to be brought into circulation.

Re: Smarty 3.1 is coming to next version of XOOPS

Quote:
<{php}> is no longer supported.


I just found this, Smartybc.

(http://www.smarty.net/docs/en/bc.tpl)

a backward compatibility wrapper that allegedly allows <{php}> to be used in S3 as a potential workaround.
