I just got done removing 8 phishing site out of a single xoopsgallery folder, these little sites are like ticks.
all over the place in oddball places and not all of them seemed what they were.

I went to www.xoopsgallery.org but they seen to be closed or down at this time, as it was yesterday. and the day prior.

I would advise you to check your xoopsgallery module, look throught all folders and look for a all CAPS ( all upper case LETTERED ) folder, that would be the easiest way to find them.


This would be a wise thing to do sence ive just finished with the 4th xoopsgallery with this problem in under 2 weeks. none of the saiute are on the same servers or hosts, the version of XOOPS gallery was 3.3.3.7, 3.3.3.9, and 2.1

Flag it, bug it, report it, what ever you like, but its come apparent that theres a problem.

`go into your cpanel
`go to phpmyadmin
`select your XOOPS db
`scroll all the way down the list.
`click select all
`repair tables.

now check your site.

let me know how it goes.

Up dated code.

thanks Billy for pointing out my typo.


<?php  
if (file_exists("mainfile.php")) {  
    include(
"mainfile.php");  
}  
elseif(
file_exists("../mainfile.php")) {  
    include(
"../mainfile.php");  
}  
else {  
    include(
"../../mainfile.php");  
}  
include(
XOOPS_ROOT_PATH "/header.php");  
$xoopsTpl->assign('xoops_showrblock'1); // 1 to display right blocks, 0 to hide  
$xoopsTpl->assign('xoops_showlblock'1); // 1 to display left blocks , 0 to hide 
///////  
echo "Your code";  
///////  
include(XOOPS_ROOT_PATH "/footer.php");  
?>

you can place this just about any place you like and it will work.


<?php 
if (file_exists("mainfile.php")) { 
    include(
"mainfile.php"); 

elseif(
file_exists("../mainfile.php")) { 
    include(
"../mainfile.php"); 

else { 
    include(
"../../mainfile.php"); 

include(
XOOPS_ROOT_PATH "/header.php"); 
$xoopsTpl->assign('xoops_showrblock'0); // 1 display right blocks 
$xoopsTpl->assign('xoops_showlblock'0); // 1 display right blocks 
/////// 
echo "Your code"
/////// 
include(XOOPS_ROOT_PATH "/footer.php"); 
?>

Most of use have been in your shoes, with little to no experiance. but with time and assistance from others, we managed to make things work, and teach our selves new things.

To be blunt and frank about it, ALL versions of XOOPS have isues. the next version has the fix but then a new issue pops up, its a never ending cycle.
as for 2.2.3, its not a died end road, many users still have it, but most have updated to 2.2.4 or 2.2.5

as for making changes...
dont be afraid to. just remember to make a back up of your files and db.
then add your modules,themes, edit files if you like, knowing if you mess somthing up, you can fix it with your saved ( backed up ) files and db ( bata base ).

now for your questions...

If I am experiencing no issues with 2.2.3, should I downgrade?


granted the 2.2 versions are not the offical versions, but they do hold a great advantage over the 2.0's.

so heres my question..
why replace somthing thats not broken?

Am I sitting on a timebomb here?


Im not to sure on the next release of any 2.2 version of xoops, but with enuff people using it, you would think there will be one..
also keep in mind the 2.2 will always be on the back burner sence its not the " offical " version.
but to murge the 2.0 and 2.2 there will be a 2.3

Does downgrading work well?


it works, youll need to be careful tho...
once you get it down to 2.0.13, youll need to upgrade to the cerrent "stable version"

when you put money into it, any one and evey one will become a expert on this, but the true people will just do it, because they know how and with no cost.

we all start somewhere, some take off quick, and some take there time, some like large sites, and others like to keep them small and personal.

Understandable... thats why we have Pm's and Emails.

In October of 2006 I was introduced to XOOPS. It was as easy as pushing a button in the control panel of my host company and there it was. With 0 programming experience, I was pleased.

Now I am reading that there are issues with version 2.2.3 that apparently existed when it was installed for me.

I would like to make some changes, add some themes, another module etc, but am quite paralyzed with fear to do anything at the moment.

My question is:

If I am experiencing no issues with 2.2.3, should I downgrade?
