Re: Xoops doesn't like ZoneAlarm Pro

go to the symantec page and they explain graphically how configure each part.

You need disable the hidde referers.
xiios check referers. and if norton or other firewall hidde the referer, XOOPS think that is a non secure user.
only disable this into the firewall and you go to can work without problems.

Re: Xoops doesn't like ZoneAlarm Pro

I use Nortons Internet Security and firewall, and since this site has started using Xoops2, I no longer have to disable my firewall to login. I always have to disable it on my pre-Xoops2 sites though.

(edited)

Ok, i can login to site, but I cant post ;(

I had to turn it off to post this...

Re: Xoops doesn't like ZoneAlarm Pro

In XOOPS2, you can turn this security check off very easily by modifying the following code in include/common.php on line 51:

define('XOOPS_DB_CHKREF', 1);

to

define('XOOPS_DB_CHKREF', 0);

However, we do not recommend turning this off unless you are able to definitely trust the visitors coming to your site.

Re: Xoops doesn't like ZoneAlarm Pro

Muchas gracias Sergio.

And don't worry about bad English, I was actually becoming a passive observer of this thread and it was extremely worrisome to see both Chapis and Boobtoob's reaction to the thread. I really appreciate to see that one of the developers at least is taking the matter seriously.

When attitude's the game, better look for a new game console, I would like to know how many of those who have posted a thread in here as considering this a problem have considered moving to other CMS systems not because we do not like the way XOOPS works, but because the developers and web-masters were using phrases that have an offensive (and rather defensive) tone like "learn how to use your firewalls" and "xoops is run in hundreds of places yatta yatta" when the internet is about MILLIONS of users! It sounded so boisterous!

If someone considers this is an issue, you should be grateful, as developers, to see that all XOOPS loyal users, who are trying to recommend XOOPS are much as possible, are posting the problem for it to be taken into account instead of turning to any other CMS system! It's not only the developers who are working and contributing to Xoops, but we as users should be acknowledged as well, especially when we are posting any issues that might arise, I believe that's an important guide in the development of ANY system.

I will not be surprised to see there's no reply by Chapis or Boobtoob, or that the next reply is also in a defensive-offensive "taken-personal-agression-boo-hoo-hoo" tone. I would instead be GLADLY surprised to see if they post any kind of "Our Oops, we're looking into it."

Developers are doing a great job, don't let attitude get in the way!

Again, thanks w4z004, that's the kind of attitude that moves any stone forward.

Re: Xoops doesn't like ZoneAlarm Pro

I am glad to hear the devs are working on the problem but the problem really is a big problem. I wasnt aware of this issue until about a week ago when loads of emails started flowing in with complaints about unable to register, unable to login and so on. I cannot reply to everybody explaining and supporting them with firewall configuration and so we are loosing users every day...

Users are users, they really dont give a @#(* about firewalls unlike developers.

So here is may question: would you suggest installing trollix hack until the issues are solved? Can you tell me exactly what risks do I take when installing it? I understand that by knowing the hole i would be able to hack other sites using the hack but then again - how would i be sure?

thanks,

Krisj

Re: Adding Links in the Main Menu -

THANKS mktwain124!

This was the exact ticket I needed to get it up and working!

It is working like a charm now with the help of a little module template, it is great!
