I had this problem for awhile too, your situation is likely different but for me it turned out to be (I believe) that I was running an older version of the tiny content module with no content in it and it was spawning neverending processes everytime it was accessed, eventually winding up the processor to almost 100% and the server grinded down to a near halt. I have a dedicated server so it took longer to overwhelm, but eventually even that didn't matter.

Check your CPU usage when you see long load times like that, if it is running near 100% you likely have a similar problem. I terminaled in and killed all my http processes and restarted them, thereby killing all the rogue processes in the background and my site instantly went from a 15 second load time to a consistent 2 second load time.

Set up a static 50kb or so webpage somewhere on the server with a url you can call directly so you can gauge how fast that page loads vs. php pages that have to access the database. That can maybe tell you if something related to your DB is the problem, or just the host in general.

I think it looks great and I'm a fan of fixed widths as well, it's a personal thing as said before. It also keeps the layout looking as you intend it to.

Nevermind the peanut gallery, that title should be changed from "Friends of Xoops" to "Donors to Xoops," to avert any further confusion between the two.

And while we are here, I have recently installed the module and notice that sometimes on the side display block it will display the same image for more than one site at times. Are there any fixes for that? I tried disabling the cache thinking there was confusion related to that but with no effect.

Will it be done as a separate block so you don't have to even choose between topics or traditional, but run both? If so, my life will be complete.

Thanks for the tip, I was able to figure out a way to make it all work through Tiny Content 1.5

Check out www.newshax.com/modules/tinycontent (woohoo!)

I installed the latest Tiny Content module and tried that too, but creating a page wrap in that wouldn't do it either. I finally got it to work by pasting the code inside the body tags and added it as an html page rather than a page wrap, then copied the jar file to that directory. That seemed to do the trick and now the .jar files can be found, but it's gonna get messy in the content folder after I start adding more crosswords.

I already paid for the crossword software I'm using so I'm kinda stuck with it, but so far it seems perfect for what I need. I'm still interested in the software you mentioned though.

Regarding #3, to display the news by topic, that is on alot of peoples lists for sure but it would be best I believe if you had the choice to keep the main news block as is and add another news display block you can insert elsewhere for a topical listing of stories.

Having a topical display of the news instead of the regular news listing as was specified above would make me very sad.

Choices are always better!

I think the ability to specify the # of stories displayed for each topic, and the ability to make it into a 1,2, or 3 column listing would be very cool indeed.

I am trying to add some interactive java crosswords to my site but am having trouble getting them to work in Free Content. It works if I call the url directly:

http://www.newshax.com/modules/freeco ... nt/xmas/xmas-default.html

It requires a .jar file which I suspect is the problem, Konquerer tells me the java executable is not found, even though it works outside of Free Content.

Is there a way to make this work in FC, or another wrapper that can make this work?

AHA!

I have been experiencing high site load times recently and didn't know why but this would explain what was happening.

File this under things NOT to do:

I wanted to link to the Top Stories block with a link button I created but didn't know how to link to just a block, only a module. So I installed the Tiny Content module because it will load with just a blank page when you have no content, and then on the blocks administration page for Tiny Content, I enabled only the top stories block in the center column, basically creating a module to display my top 200 news stories that I could link to from anywhere. But since I have no content in Tiny Content, it must have been the culprit script on my server if what I read here is correct.

Any suggestions on how I can recreate this: http://www.newshax.com/modules/tinycontent -- with some other means?

Unless I don't understand everything you are asking, you can do that by running your RSS feed found at yoursite.com/backend.php on his site. The headlines will appear on his site when you post them and they will carry the readers back to your site to see the story.
