I am not quite sure why you need to use a subfolder-- if you go into XOOPS preferences and 'turn your site off,' then logout or go to the site with a different browser, you get effectively what you are looking for. A plain page (depending on the template, you can edit it) with a log in screen and a message (which you can also change).

There is no real reason to need a "Xoops" subfolder, as no one can get in without a login anyway.

Try that out and see if it doesn't work for you.

Re: Block for Guest Users (ONLY)

I have a "welcome guest user" custom block on one of my XOOPS sites, and it is set up exactly as Brash describes, and it works great.

Double check the groups again-- some other group must have access.

Safari works just fine on my Powerbook, but I prefer Firefox for Xoopsing-- It's faster...

I did that, and it solved the appearance problem, big THANKS. The template list continues to have a red "13" by the forums as before, but I am not going to worry about that today, since everything is working. I'll understand the template system better someday. I re-read the documentation on the templates, and that does not indicate what to do in such a case, but as they say in German, "Kommt Zeit, kommt Rat" which means in this case, "I'll figure it out eventually."

Thanks again.

I think you're on to something there-- I am using default.backup - and on the templates page, it says:

Forums [List (13)]

which I understand means the templates need to be updated, however, clicking to list them shows none that need to be updated-- all have only Edit, Delete, and Download options.

I still don't understand this template system. If I delete some, can they automatically be regenerated, or do I have to upload new ones? Or re-clone?

I can't recall why I cloned the default set, but I recall reading it was advised to do for some reason.
Thanks again for any help.

Re: Newbb2 upgrade problem

I appreciate your response, but I don't think that's the problem, unless there is a file incorrectly marked in the dev site-- my downloads window in Firefox confirms I downloaded "XOOPS2_mod_newbb_2.02.rar"

By the way, I checked out your flash tutorials after the upgrade went awry to make sure I had done everything right (I had). Excellent job on those!

Any other ideas?

Newbb2 upgrade problem

After a lot of hassle, I managed to get my newbb2 upgrade at least working. It's quite a pain to get it all reconfigured if you have a lot of forums and a lot of different user groups to give permissions to.

In any case, after finally getting it to work, Some icons are not showing up, instead just some code. I have put an image of how it appears athttp://stroseschool.net/images/xoops.jpg

In addition, when I click to delete a post, I get a page with the center block blank white, and the post is not deleted when I go back to the forum. No error, just a blank white center block.

Resolving these two issues will put my mind at peace this weekend. Anyone to help?

Thank you much...

Mac T

I see you're still having trouble-- I am very new to all this and just plod my way through it, so don't take what I write as good advice, but perhaps something to try since you have run out of ideas.

We also seem to be setting this up using different tools, but perhaps my experience will help you nonetheless...

I set up the new mySQL database using my virtual host administrator interface called Cpanel (it's a shared hosting thing on a Linux server, I do not have root access, I just have a username).

I called the database xoopsdb, but I noticed once I entered it, the Cpanel renamed it username_xoopsdb. I understand this, since it's shared virtual hosting. The username for the database likewise was renamed username_username (where the first is the linux acct name, the second is the db user I added).

So, if this situation mimics yours at all, perhaps you need to add a priviledged, but not root, user account to your server, and call your database username_class, and add user username_huw to that database, and forget the localhost stuff.

If not exactly, perhaps this will send you in a new direction that will lead to success.

Good luck, in any case! Mac T

Is there a way to keep this formally registered username visible (intact) but without being registered anymore?


I am rather new to Xoops, but I guess I figured out what I would do-- go into edit user, edit that person to remove their e-mail address (or alter it to be unuseable) and change their password so they cannot login. For all intents and purposes, they are gone, but their usernames will remain on posts.

Another more complicated way which would probably work would be to create a new group in the Groups admin called "outcasts" or something like that, and change it that group has access to no modules of any importance, then assign those users to only that group (remove them from "registered users"). Haven't tried this, but I imagine their user data will remain in the database this way.

Good luck, please report back.

very simple solution-- and not a bad idea if you don't intend on having registered users---

go to Groups click to modify"anonymous users" and uncheck the "Login" checkbox in the "Block Access Rights" section. Then click to "Update Group".

Return to your site and log out. The login box should not show up. To get to it, go to www.[yoursite.com]/user.php and you'll see the login fields. You may wish to bookmark that page for easy access.

Very simple, very easy.
