Re: Default Comment Order not being set properly for new users

Quote:
why not just set in "Preferences" default comments order to "oldest first" ??


I did have it set that way in my preferences but it wasn't working. XOOPS is hardcoded to use "Newest First" for the viewing mode when new users sign up. As it is right now, the setting in preferences is only affecting anonymous users.

The change I suggested hard codes it so that "oldest first" is the default viewing mode for new users. What really should be done is that it should take the setting specified from preferences, which is what it looks like the developers will do.

Default Comment Order not being set properly for new users

I have my default comment viewing order set to "oldest first" which works fine for the anonymous users, but when new users register it sets the users default view mode to "Newest First" which is quite confusing to alot of my members.

How can I change things so that all new users are created with the correct default view mode?

I've looked through register.php, and tried to hardcode it with

$newuser->setVar("uorder", 0);

but that didn't do it. Anyone have any other ideas?

Polish your theme CSS files

I'm getting ready to polish the theme for my site, and while there are things I like about phpkaox, I love the use of keyword font sizes in the blue thunder theme.

So, with that in mind, I have been digging into some CSS resources that shed some light on some cross-browser issues and give advice and tests on how to optimize your CSS code.

I thought I would share the links with you:

Re: table background is missing sometimes ..

I have the same result with my custom block using IE 5.5 and a phpkaox derivative. I find that when I go to my URL by typing it in, the background color for my custom block does not appear. However, if I browse my site and click into my home page (or, as you did, hit the back button), the background color shows up fine.

This was happening in RC2 for me, as well, so I don't think it's an RC3-specific issue. My guess had been that it's either a flaw in CSS rendering of IE, OR the CSS file for the theme was doing something that IE could only understand when it was in the mood.

I can't think of anything that XOOPS would be doing to impact the issue. However, I am digging into CSS to polish my theme... so perhaps something will turn up in the process.

Summary:
-This happens in both IE 5.5 and IE 6
-This happens in the phpkaox theme as well as yours
-This happens in RC2 and RC3

As I dig into CSS, some useful sites I've found are in this thread.

Re: IIS Install problem

FYI, I had the same problem on my Win2K-SP2 machine and the include path fix worked fine. The default include path on my Win2k PHP 4.1.2 install was c:\php4\pear -- which doesn't exist (php is installed on D, not C and I don't have pear installed). I would assume this is a really PHP bug / issue???

Note that my PHP.INI looked like this before:

; UNIX: "/path1:/path2"
;include_path = ".:/php/includes"
;
; Windows: "\path1;\path2"
; include_path = ".;d:\php\includes"

Simply uncommenting the last "include_path = ..." line fixed the problem. I still don't know where it was getting c:\php4\pear from....

Thanks!
