Google Indexing

The good news is that Google has indexed nearly 2500 pages from my XOOPS site, http://www.google.com/search?q=allinu ... e=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&filter=0

The bad news is that the title Google reads from these pages is the site name and module name only. Is there a way to change the module name (ex: News) to the story name of the article the link references in thes searches? I have been fortunate so far, just getting promoted to PR 7 but I am also missing out on a lot of potential visitors because most of my writing is still unindexed by title.

Basically I want to change what the SE's read from: <Site Title> - <module name> to <Site Title> - <Story title>, is that possible anywhere? Little details like these go a long way to attracting users to ones site which is the ultimate goal behind all of this!!!

any ideas anyone? Despite my removing all references in the config files to anything but xfsection, it still displays the main news feed only.

If someone can recommend any method of obtaining an RSS feed from xfsection it would sure be appreciated.

Thank you, that answered my questions on the file placement and it worked (at least for the news block) the first time. I still cannot get xfsections to display though, I have changed the include to display only xfsection but all I get is the main news stories.

In the include file the DB call to xfsections is as follows:

$sql "SELECT * FROM ".$xoopsDB->prefix("xfs_article")." ORDER BY published DESC";
    
$result $xoopsDB->query($sql,$limit,$offset);


My actual database table is named xoops_xfs_article however, is the above code correct to access the full table name? (I don't know PHP)

I have tried to install the RSS feed but the install doc isn't very clear to me, could someone tell me where I am supposed to upload these files exactly? I made the php changes I needed but have no idea where the files should go...

Anyone?

having problems installing RSS-11 module

Has anyone had any luck installing this module?

It looks like a long sought after newsfeed solution as it can create an RSS feed from many modules in XOOPS including xfsections and probably wfsections if you tweaked it, but there is a translation gap with the authors instructions and I can't understand what he is saying. I feel like someone threw some flour sugar and eggs on my porch and told me to bake a cake, does anyone have any premonition where these files should be uploaded to? Thanks

Installation
A Home directory and a bin directory will be made, when unzip it.
Copy additionaly this home directory to XOOPS home directory.
Since it is a new file altogether, it does not have influence on the existing file.
As for bin directory, makesnap.php is contained.
Please put on the arbitrary directories which cannot be started from WEB.

I've been waiting for something like this for a long time, a module that can take a list of chosen stories by story ID, rather than just one or the last xx stories and display them in a block along with a thumbnail:
http://www.newshax.com

(See the "Nightly News" right panel in light blue)

Spotlight comes close but can only do one article AFAIK now. Currently I have to do it manually which is a chore but I am more than happy to share the html I use if you like, until hopefully someone with more skills than I decides to attempt this for real.

Is there a way to offer separate RSS feeds from the regular news block and from either xf or wfsections?

I have a situation where the editor of my xfsections wants to have her own RSS feed, and I'd rather not mix the main news block with the xfsections content in a single RSS feed.

I asked you a serious question Rico. I was just trying to establish that I'm not a platform holy-roller, but feel free to jump straight into personal insults at any time.

Merry Christmas, Rico.

Without wanting to start a platform holy war and purely for academic reasons, what accounts for the differences in costs that you experience between the different platforms? I'm an MCSE and have being working with Windows servers for years in an IT role but for my non-commercial web interests I prefer to use Red Hat/mySQL, for what I do it seems to be cheaper overall. The moderate trafficked RH/mySQL XOOPS site I have it seems to be a much leaner solution (for me) than a Windows server.

However my traffic still grows by the week and at some point I may run into the cost issues you are experiencing, and any firsthand info and experience about the economics of the different platforms would certainly be helpful.
