I noticed that when I moved my google ad banner from my right column to my left, the links that google displayed became more relevant to my site!?! Cool.

As a suggestion from one novice to another, move your google ads around your page if you feel it's not diplaying relative enough ads for you.

DHTML drop-down menus...

I am piecing together an outline of my site. I am interested in utilizing DHTML drop down menus. Has it been done before (I have not seen it)? Where? Do they play well with Xoops?

I have a license to use Xara Menumaker menu's with my site. Has anyone used their product with Xoops?

If there is another drop down menu maker that works well with XOOPS then let me know about it, I'd be willing to purchase.

Thanks.

Fixed it, or at least found a workaround. My assumption was that I approve web links thru my personal notification utility. I found that you must do this thru the administration panel.

As a side note, while the notification was pending the web links link in the menu crashed IE when it was selected.

Figured I owed a follow up to my post.

I am not sure what smarty is or what it can do for me, which is the gist of the original message. I will edit the original message and remove the reference to the line you refer to. My point is that I am used to using an interface to create. I do not know where to start using smarty.

Do not take my rants as a personal attack, in fact I appreciate your reply. I just am at a loss at wtf I am supposed to do with this program. In short I fail to see the beauty in which smarty can provide for me.

Am I a wannabe g in a php world? perhaps. I better sleep (yawn).

P.S.
too late to edit original post.

In your NewBB admin page you must click the "Reorder" tab to get to where you want. Hope this answers your question.

I have been reading up on installing smarty so that I can "get my feet wet with it". Dabble if you will. I have moderate web development skills and I know that I want to do some solid work with the XOOPS CMS. Problem is I look at the smarty download file and try to upload it to my shared host webserver from globalhosting.com. It is at this point where I do not know what the heck I am doing. I can not find no index.php or config.php or even an install.php file in the bunch. I am absolutely willing to learn about it, and in my past experiences "hands on" was my best strategy for learning about new tools. This is frustration me because this tool to me seems to have no interface. Am I just completely missing the boat on the whole smarty party?

Maybe I'm rambling, maybe I'm looking in the wrong direction for a "tight web theme" design tool, maybe I'm in over my head, maybe XOOPS isn't the right CMS for my retarded understanding, maybe I should go to bed and try again tomorrow.

What do I want?
I want a site that looks like Winamp's site. I also like how Draven put together his portal page to his site and how it packs a lot of content into a tight functional flowpiece. I do not need tons of bells and whistles. A forum (newBB), chat (flashchat), and news module would be the main focus of my online community site. A portal page with a constant header that follows the visitor thru the site. This header would include at the most a cached dhtml drop down menu (I purchased xara's menumaker a while back) that would allow the visitor access to all areas of the site with a single click.

Is that too much to ask for? Is smarty the right tool for this job? If not, what alternatives do I have?

Thanks for hearing me out.

I have a somewhat virgin install of the latest xoops. I get the following error when trying to submit a web link:




Error Code: 0013


ERROR: Could not query the database.

I just took a look with Mozilla, the xoops2 site forums rendered fine. I will try your suggestions, thanks.

Leave it to me to put two and two together THREE days later. I now know that your wink was for the reason that it was your template that I was using. Talk about "loser" .
