well....if you have xdonations setup and working...you could just alter the templates a bit to reflect that fact that people are paying to join as opposed to donating.

xDonations allows you to 'assign' users to a group once they have donated.

So, and example of making this work for you would be:

Set site up so that registration is required to view information, leaving enough info viewable to non-registered users to convince them to register.

Have certain areas of the site available to registered users that have NOT paid. Adding little notes about what else a registered user can see if they sign up for the service....

Now...the user decides they want access to the stuff they can only see if they pay...they go to your altered donations module, now called 'subscriptions' or something similar, and 'donate' (deposit money into your paypal account). Once their donation has gone through and is recognized by the PayPal IPN, they will be automatically assigned to the 'Paid Members' group that you have created, that has access to the 'paid for' areas of your site.

You may have to check with the author of the xDonations module about altering the submission information to use a PayPal subscription instead of just payments.

**also, on a side note...you will have to manually delete the users subscription from PayPal when they cancel.

My 2 cents worth: The amember software etc. and the set-up required to make it work is perhaps a tad more involved than the above example and requires just as much 'management', as well as costing about $140.
If you are comfortable in XOOPS and or have a decent relationship with any of the many helpful xoopsers out there...you may wish to save your money. Likewise the opposite can be said, you be better off spending the money if you are not at all comfortable with the XOOPS environment.

Happy Xoopsing!

there is also a hack for the xcgallery that allows movie files to be uploaded and displayed....

Try them all out, as I have noticed that your user level, hosting platform, and site set-up all seem to affect the various media modules in different ways.

Take a look here:

The main area of your site is a defined 'layer', so you'll have to put it in a 'container' that is centered on the screen.

I haven't used the module, but the bandwidth question depends on how the particular module gets and uses the information.
If the module is framing content from an external source or app, then no. If it is pulling the information from the cam/app and displaying it, is that function called when the page displays or constantly. Same goes for having the info fed to it from the web cam or app.

The best way to find out dean, would be to check your logs from the server.
Look for:
a) whether or not you have constant access/pings from the ip of the webcam.

b) check page access information to see if any part of the module is transfered in part or in whole when comparing it to the ip access information.

c) Start your cam, log inot the site and watch for a specified amount of time, taking note of what time and day you are doing this, and then check the info in your web logs to see if that created a significant increase in bandwidth use during the test compared to no test.

This will also provide you with some decent 'standards' to use for calculating what your bandwidth requirements are going to be over time based on the number of users or expected users viewing the cam, and for an average length of viewing time or specific file size.

Maybe I'll buy a new firewire cable for my camcorder this weekend and try it out

incenseman:
In the myalbum module folder there is a cache folder and an upload folder or album folder (the folder where the images go when you upload them) that need to be chmod'd to 777

Try that and see what happens.

Also, CBB 1.14 (the replacement for NewBB) forums has rss built in, allowing users to pull rss from specific topics/forums or the whole module. Some of the News Modules also have this feature 'built in' as well.

Guess it all depends on what you would like to have syndicated and available.

I've noticed some threads stating that 2.2.3 won't send e-mail to the webmaster but will send e-mail to other users.

Check that possability before completely ruling out any of the other options, as they may be working, but just not in the way you tried it.

My host has an alternate path to use for sendmail when calling it from PHP...you may want to ask about that as well.

(Out of curiosity, have you set-up a 2.0.13.1 or even a 2.2 site in another directory, to test against, to make sure that it isn't specifically a 2.2.3 issue?)

CBB has more blocks than NewBB and they display those desired items...so it might be easies to upgrade to CBB, try their blocks to see what suits your needs best and then create a new block for the module that displays just the items you are wanting to display.

***I ultimately think that the best way to do it, is the way that makes the most sense to you***

Assuming you are using NewBB 2.02, there are 3 places that you need to set it up so they can post.

1. The XOOPS group permissions need to allow anonymous users to see and access the forums

2. The general Prefs of the Module need to be set to allow guests to post

3. In the settings for each forum, you need to designate which groups can do what within each forum.

Hopefully this will point you in the right direction...

Happy Xoopsing!
