Hi rob777,

I have it on good authority that you should perhaps look at your mailfile.php

look at define( 'XOOPS_URL'

delete index.php off the end of the url

Save the file (with correct permissions)

Then grab yourself a latté

I've posted on behalf of a good friend. RIP

bare in mind to use the Dreamweaver plugin you need to use Dreamweaver CS3
you can not use anything lower then that at the moment


The is an older version Dreamweaver 8, it just doesn't have the new tags available for 2.0.14 + versions of XOOPS.

Re: Wordpress (wp for xoops) vs Xpress 2.04?

I always thought XPress was pretty much WordPress with a little messy integration into XOOPS.

Switching WordPress would gain you XOOPS, but would limit you in many other ways, for example imagine there is a security risk in WordPress and they fix it, now XPress is also use the old version and has that security risk but you can't do anything with XPress except hope that security risk is not taken advantage off until the developer updates it to the latest WordPress Version also.

With regards to importing, I should imagine the tables would pretty much be the same, as XPress is still wordpress, although I'm not sure what version of wordpress Xpress useses and what database differences there is from your version number and intergenerated version number.

I hope that makes some sense, lol

Personally I wouldn't bother with XPress, I'd consider something like the Life Type module, I've heard from other established developers working around XOOPS that this was coded better.

If you don't really need a site for anything else other than bloggin, then WordPress is fantastic as a stand alone product, I use both WP and WPMU and love them both.

I know it sounds silly but have you first of all checked block permissions, to make sure the reason your not seeing them isn't related to that.

Are you able to check in the database to see if they are there?

If you'd like to pm me, I could possibly offer further assistance over MSN.

I've always loved XcGal too, although I was hoping that ExtGal would replace it, however when ever I try ExtGal, there always seems to be so many bugs, not tried it recently though, I hear he released a new version.

I'm just hoping these modules will continue to be actively developed.

You can of course build a theme and templates to work with XOOPS, you will of course need those smarty tags to input the content and columns.

If your new to XOOPS theming then I'd advise you download a couple of themes and just asses how they are done.

You could also consider this excellent Dreamweaver plugin that gives you all the XOOPS stuff you need when designing.

I've not seen it before, it's possible that it is a custom module made by them or for them and never released.

You could always ask them directly, just in case it is available.

You allowed my last post to remain this time, so I can presume you will give me such courtesy again.

[...]

With regards to the comments on the advertisement's, I spoke to Marcan, he never imposes restrictions on removing such things, and will take that feedback on board and possibly look at doing things a little different for future releases.

[Post edited so we can get back on track to technical issues]

This is my reply to the post: Re: Xigg - removing "powered by Xigg" ?

My reply maybe removed, hence why I'm private messaging it to you also.

Quote:
Coming back to the original question on the Xigg module. I think SmartSection is a lot more open as it has a licence that allows you to adapt it. In case of Xigg, you don't have this freedom (at least not at this moment). I would contact the maker before using it, Probably he has been busy with other things then "legal yada yada".


I think if you look into the GPL, if a piece of code relies on a product licensed under the GPL, then it too must be licensed the same way, however when making ports I believe there is an exception to the rule.

Other exceptions include images and themes (according to past conversions) as they can work without the XOOPS GPL code.

With regards to hiding text, it would be a silly thing to do, and rather pointless, but still we see many cases of this being done around the web.

No onto the stupidity 'smartfactory modules are ADWARES', I believe the original poster of that comment is not genuine, based on all the hacked XOOPS accounts we keep seeing.

WF-Downloads was originally developed by Catz upto 2.05. from version 3.0 the module was rewritten completely by mithrandir and smartfactory. so no. wfdownloads 3.x serious was not written by catz.

Marcan from the SmartFactory would reply and offer support himself here, however he was banned because he works with another CMS also.

The advertisements are in the back end, so they don't interfere with users of a site, I do agree though they are annoying and not good for people who perform installations for clients and also have businesses to run. But if your doing this a client, your making money from it and you should be able to support the module yourself and from that remove the advertisements yourself. If your unable to code the advertisements out, then what would your clients do when they have an intricate problem with their site they are paying you for.

It takes the whole of two minutes to remove those ad's.

Because Marcan can't see these posts I shall raise the issue with him again and reply here with his response.

I will say this it's unfair targeting someone who cannot reply because you banned them for supporting another system as well as XOOPS, I'm surprised they still support XOOPS with this conduct.

Hi CompShack,

XOOPS doesn't do any of that, XOOPS should be considered as a framework and is modular, so you need to find modules which fulfil your requirements, imagine these modules are extensions to XOOPS.

Everything you describe is achievable.

Quote:
1. Categories
Example:
-Database
--SQL
--PL/SQL

-Programing languages
--Visual Basic
--PHP
--Java
--C#

-Some other categories and sub-categories


Are these categories going to be in a forum module, or a sections module, either way yes they could be added to a module.

Quote:
2. Code syntax highlighting
This is a must - I use GeSHi module on my current drupal site. I have lots of code in my posts and this will present them in a very clear easy to follow way.


If this is for the forums, then there is a basic form, however if you want something more elaborate this would require a little more hacking.

I don't suppose you have a link for me to see exactly how your current solution works.

Quote:
3. SEO friendly URLs
so url will show as www.yousite.com/a-sample-select-statement


Yes, but requires some hacking depending on the actual module.

Quote:
4. Blogs
My current site allows me to give users their own blog on the site. Example, if I have a user with username "test1" then they can have their blog at www.yousite.com/test1.


You would need to consider something like the wordpress module, or yogurt which is great for social networking. There is also XSNS - Social Networking Service, but I'm not sure that works with XOOPS at the moment. There is also XOOPS life type.

Quote:
5. Does XOOPS allow guest posts? If so, how does it protect against spam? I use CAPTCHA on my drupal site to limit spam.


Yes for guest comments, and I believe most modules, CAPTCHA is not bullet proof though, I'm not sure of how widely it's been adapted.

Hope this is of some help.
