- Subscription Service Hack

Marco, I'm sorry to say that MC Subscriptions still is not working, insofar as I can determine. I'm trying to help pod figure out what's wrong with it, but we may simply give up and buy amember instead.

Re: Subscriptions ?

pod - no reply to my PM either here or at your site. Are you on holiday?

Re: Subscription Service Comming

Unfortunately, that error seems to come up regardless.

The only way I seem to be able to add a subscription is to manually enter it as the admin; I created the "free" (default) group, and two paid groups on my test server. The results of clicking on the link to *any* of the three groups (no matter whether I am logged in anonymously or as a non-admin user) is to cause the screen to refresh - and nothing else that I can see.

I'll fiddle with the system clock later and see if I can at least make an account expire. That alone will be useful, but it's not the purpose of the module, is it?

I hope we can get this functioning; I have a high-dollar site planned, and will be more than happy to donate, say, $10/month until eternity if this module can be made fully functional.

Until then, however, I need to put all spare cash into the site itself. Unless MC Subscriptions works, the site will generate *noly* direct merchandise sales, which are very low-profit.

Re: Php forum

Rowdie, with all due respect, I didn't come down on anyone; I simply pointed out that the problem seems to stem from the very issue you mentioned, a lack of native understanding of the subtleties of the language. I am quite certain that my Portuguese, Spanish, and German would seem quite vulgar to anyone who learned any of those as his native tongue; for that reason, I am very careful when I try to converse in any language other than American English (which is different to both Canadian and British English, and almost incomprehensible in Australia) to not take offense when I *think* a possible insult has been offered; it's important to determine if the perceived "insult" is intended, or simply perceived due to my poor understanding.

I am also very well aware of cultural differences that stem from basic linguistic structures, and which lead to radically different responses from people whose native languages are different.

All of the above, in my opinion, contributed to the unfortunate results here. I don't know for certain if the same end would have come about eventually anyway, but for having commented on the contretemps in the first place, I do accept culpability, and I regret it. However, my analysis of the issue has not changed (and I have not stated it outright, so please don't assume you know what it is).

I find the phrase "can't we all just get along" to be overused to the point of triteness, but the sentiment behind it is still valid.

Believe me when I tell you that, if I chose to "come down" on someone, not only would there be no doubt whatsoever in your mind about my intentions, I'd probably be banned from the forums. I don't think these forums are the place for that sort of behavior, though, if, indeed, there is a proper place.

Now I'd really like to drop it, unless someone is absolutely determined to get in the last word (in which case, please say so, and I'll avoid responding).

Re: Php forum

I am sorry to see it come to this. I have my own idea of how it all came about (I spent several years living in Latin America), but I'll let it rest.

I'm afraid I am the one who stirred the pot recently, too.

Re: Php forum


So don't be smart now!

Let me make sure I understand. Are you aware that, to native English speakers, "don't be smart" is an insult? It's something a mother might say to her child, but no adult should ever say to another adult (especially a stranger).

The natural result of an insult is to get insults in return, and I am certain you know that. What I don't know is if you are intentionally insulting, or accidentally. I prefer to think it's accidental, and if that's the case, I'd like to help.

Of course, if it's intentional, no one can help.

How old are you, smartass ?

First learn to write what you need and then come back!

Gambero, your sig says, "Sorry for my poor English!"

I think that was the problem here. On the first go, basza was not clear, and you properly answered that the forum modules are all listed. However, he clarified it sufficiently on his very next post: "I'm trying to find a good php forum where I can get help from."

At that point, it is (or should be) obvious to native English-speakers that he's looking for a forum *about* php, not *written in* php.

I don't have any idea how good your php skills are, but your social skills need to include *not* taking offense when you don't understand the question. Please?

(Testing to see if the "edited" bit shows)

Is there any way by which I could let XOOPS automatically send welcome emails when some one joins in my website...

Xoops does this by design. Go to the Administration Menu, System Admin, Preferences, Mail Setup, and enter the appropriate data for your server. If you aren't the Mail Admin, you may need to ask your hosting company for the information.

Thank you, Morely, I seriously appreciate the offer. If you would like a free subscription to MyXoops Club, its yours.

PM sent - let's see if we can get this thing working!

Re: myAlbum-p


PHP directive 'upload_tmp_dir': Error: upload_tmp_dir (/tmp) is not writable nor readable .

This looks like the php.ini file is directing PHP to use /tmp as the temp dir. Can you upload in any other module?
