olswick: This is a great idea. I was gunna create this for a client site bback before i discovered xoops. Now with XOOPS covering alot of basic features, this kind of function is easier to add on top :)
I might think about doing something, as a programmer, maybe if we just defined a bit more beyond what already been mentioned it would be easier to code. Like: maybe the reg is modified to ask for birthdate (optional) and for people who supply the info, they get a Happy Birthday to Username. also it would need to handle multiple bdays in one day.

I beleive it would be easier to let the user supply this info automatically, so the webmaster doesnt have to ask each person and then type it into the database.
Some communities are really big. So even if youre site is small, if this was to be a module for xoops, it should scale to any size site, big or small.

scrapie: That could be done, the module would come with a bday announcement block, which you could put anywhere. such as on top of the forums page if you like.


WarDick: That is an excellent suggestion by reusing existing facilities to address this request of functionality. It would work great for smaller sites, and most sites are not super huge, so it covers like 90% of XOOPS site.

---


We should add any other obvious details if we did want to actually make a module out of this instead of actually reusing existing functionalities, as WarDick suggested.


some of the module requirements I listed above, I know they are obvious, but programmers need the obvious defined to code a solution that covers it.

Finally, I have many times needed this feature. I may think about writing this module, although i need to fiure out some things, and can possible start it in a month.


meanwhile, an exact requirements list could be planned out.



Cheers,

good question.


The default XOOPS install will not support this, although is is certainly possible to add some custom code for this.

You would need to add a male/female radio selection to the register.php form/app.

Then when user is added/verified, just add them to the appropriate custom group, with some custom code.

I definately agree with this.

In the 80's and 90's it was a core feature of all BBS boards. (especially when there was no internet, and phone line time was a premium)

I hope this gets added as well.

Phone Book Module Planned Features
----------------------------------

database tables:

Depts:
ID|Name|parentID

Listings:
ID|uID|Name1|Name2|DeptID|phone1|phone2|phone3 (work, home, cell)


Users:
-Can search phonebook
-can display whole department
-Can select letters, just like rolodex type function (which most software phonebooks have)
-Printable option will be available for clean prints without the template
-New XOOPS users can add themselves to the phone book.
-Can update info if tied to a XOOPS user (after loggin in)
-Not all people in the phone book have to be tied to a XOOPS username
-If is tied to a XOOPS user name, will also disply other contact info such as email, AIM, MSNM, YIM


Admin:
-Can add, edit, delete people entries
-Can approve or allow auto approve for users who add phone entries
-Can import phonebook from CSV file
-can export phonebook to CSV file
-Can add, rename departments (will use xoopsTree) and allow subcats, but using one level will be recommended
-can delete empty departments
-can approve user changes to their own listing


This module is intended for business intranets or closed communities
where the module will not be accessible from the public internet without password authentication.

Perfect setting for this module would be a medium sized company intranet where the box is not connected to the internet.
Next best setting would be a small to medium extranet where it is connected, but using passwords to access.
After that, use at your own risk :)

-----------------------------

Any more suggestions for module features are welcome...

Cheers,

So on the second line of the example, you have this, correct?

<?php
include("/var/www/html/xoops-2.0.9.2/html/mainfile.php");
include(
XOOPS_ROOT_PATH."/header.php");
?>
The content of your original html file goes here!!
<?php
include(XOOPS_ROOT_PATH."/footer.php");
?>

Im not sure exactly what you are after, but if you want something on the side that stays on the page even when the user scrolls the page with the scrollbar, you would need to add some custom DHTML to your theme. I dont think you can do this with a XOOPS block.

All i can see is that you should install whats in the xoops/html dir into your html dir...

Your path is set to:

/var/www/html/xoops-2.0.9.2/html/header.php


when its recommended to be:

/var/www/html/header.php


Which would require a re-install... from there you might have a better time getting things working.

Hope that helps... If you have any more questions, we're here.

Well, it works for most people... I run it on a few sites and it works fine in that area.

You never mentioned what version you are using.

And also, would usually take some debuggin deeper than just commenting on a msg board.

The error you got has something to do with notifications, and also, maybe you could post line 8 so we can see it.

PM me your MSNM and maybe I could take a look deeper.

Hi RJ-45,

I've never used this module before, but i just downloaded this module and took a look at it to see whats up and maybe its not working right becuse it only supports 3 languages so far.

global $xoopsConfig$xoopsTheme;
//french google
if ($xoopsConfig['language'] == 'french'){
$src 'http://www.google.fr/';
}

//english google
if ($xoopsConfig['language'] == 'english'){
$src 'http://www.google.co.uk/';
}

//deutsch google
if ($xoopsConfig['language'] == 'deutsch'){
$src 'http://www.google.de/';
}


So I think you will have to edit include/param.php and add your language, of course with the right google address for your language.

I cannot test this since I dont run any sites except in English.

But I hope this helps.

Cheers,
