King,

I love your english... You sound like one of the french knights from Monty Python and the 'oly Grail...

Seriously, take a look at your webmaster group. Being the Admin user, it is possible that you have somehow been removed from the webmaster group. The hack cares only about group membership.

As for the script not cleaning up old forums? No it leaves everything in place, but creates a new table that you must populated with forum group access rights.

Hope this helps and good luck..

Rich

Bad ainglish not withstanding... This is what I think you said:

In forum preferences you are using :
Permission Assigned by - Groups
Hide private forums from users without permission - Yes

You have a private forum to which two groups have access:
Webmaster, comite.

When you who are the site admin look at the site, you cannot see the forum, When you add yourself to the comite group, you can see the forum.

--
If I have interpreted the circumstances correctly, then one of two things can be true:
1) you are not in the webmaster group
2) the patch is not completely installed

--
Next diagnostic steps:

* Create a new user and assign him to the webmaster group only
* determine if he can see the private forum.
* if he can, the problem is likely with your user group record in webmaster group.

* If he can't see the forum, create a second user and assign him only to comite group.
* determine if he can see the private forum.
* If he can see the forum, then the patch may not be completely installed. - Compare the files in the patch with those on your site.

otherwise, use a MySQL database tool such as phpmyadmin to look that the [prefix]_forum_group_access table and look at the rows for this forum. It is possible that something else has damaged the table.

Good luck!

how can I insert the code to visualize the control of the blocks right and left in my theme?


Not sure I understand the question... Do you want the user to be able to control the left and right blocks (remove or change the size) dynamically?

Certainly, in the blocks admin page, edit the block and select "all pages" for the "Visible in" value.

Using the standard newbb module, this is not possible, but there are several other versions of the module that might support this alternate behavior.

I published a hack that adds this and some other optional behaviors to newbb.

Check it out here: Newbb Forum Hack

You can also search forums on this site for Newbb Pro and other alternate versions of the standard forum module.

Cheers,

Rich

I'm glad you got it working. Just remember the performance caveats -- if you are using the group access and have lots of users and lots of groups and lots of forums and lots of posts - the outer joins that are used in this mod have some inherent performance issues. For smallish sites, no one would notice, but on a site the size of this one, with lots of private forums, one might feel the performance hit in the seat of the pants, especially if one had high db server utilization (many hosts share DB servers between web servers because many sites are low db utilization (they theorize))

Not to be obvious, but doesn't that depend rather on what the users are doing and how many hits per hour?

You can have millions of registered users, but if they only visit occasionally, you still have little traffic.

Based on your config, I would suspect that your broadband link would be a bottleneck before you feel the pain on your server. Still, if your server is dedicated, you should be able to support several dozens of concurrent users.

1) XOOPS comes with it's own core forum module, although several third party forums have also been ported including yabb and ivpb.

2) The layout of the site, and any module in particular is accomplished through the selection of "blocks" and defining which ones appear in which screen region and with which module's pages.

(BTW: no instructions came with the updated version)


My apologies, the Install instructions should be in the hack.html file. I cannot get to my site from work, and only have the 2.0.5 hack here. If the hack.html file is not present in the 2.0.6, you can download the 2.0.5 version to get the instructions...

There are install instructions in the hack - here is the short version.

You can overlay and update provided that you manually create the "group_access" table.

syntax for this is available in the mysql.sql file in the hack - just remember to add your table prefix...

-- also - my strong recommendations for all hacks - try in a safe sandbox before you hack your production site!!!!

It can be backed out by installing re-overlaying the files from the vanilla module and doing an update.

Good luck!
