Re: Website major redesign, please comment

Excellent design, very proffessional looking, with a good corporate look and feel. It says to me that this website/company are proffessional and know what they are doing.

Also very clean design and easy to navigate.

Well done.

Re: extCal 2.37 Beta 3 Ready for Testing on XOOPS 2.5.5 RC

Hi, I have came across an issue with this latest version of extcal.

When attempting to edit an event from the user side (clicking edit icon) an error occurs.

Quote:

A problem has occurred on our server!
Page is currently unavailable

We are working on a fix
Please come back soon ...

Error : Handler does not exist
Module: _EXTCAL_MODULE
Name: _EXTCAL_CLS_EVENT


Xoops version: 2.5.5 final
server: Wamp server 2.0
PHP: 5.3.1
MySQL: 5.1.30

Also not an error but would be a good addition:

If I create a recurring event e.g. event starts on 28 June and recurs weekly, I add the event liek this: start date 28-6-2012 end date 28-5-2012, this is fine, however if a user clicks on a fure occurence of this event say 5 July 2012, the event date will still show as 28-6-2012.

This can be edited by using different date format (display time only) but what would be good is the addition of a smarty variable to show the actual date the user clicks on, so if a user browses through the calender and clicks on an event on 25 december, the date 25 december would show on the event page.

Not sure if this is possible but I think it would be a good addition.

Thanks

Re: xcgal_data cookie what does it do (trying to get eu cookie complient)

Hi, thanks for the info on the xcgal cookie, I'll need to update my cookie policy.

I don't have picture rating used on my gallery, just simple viewing of pictures. Would it be possible to stop xcgal generating the cookie entirely? if so could it have any negative effects on anything else to do with the module?

Thanks

xcgal_data cookie what does it do (trying to get eu cookie complient)

Hi All,

As you probably know (well, those of you based in the EU/UK), there is a new cookie directive set which basicaly states that websites must provide info to visitors about what cookies are used on the website.

In an effort to get the xoops website I run for a non profit organisation up to speed and after looking at advice posted on various sites I have opted to update my privacy policy and list the cookies used on the site & the purpose of the cookies, however i can't seem to figure out what xcgal_data cookie does, i figured its maybe something left over from coppermine or is it just for members who can upload photos? (we don't have members except staff), any ideas?

thanks

Re: SEO URL Routing Module - Clean URLS for ANY MODULE!!

I think the best bet for url rewriting in xoops is to have it in the core, some sort of rewrite api, then module devs can implement rewriting on a per module basis using the rewrite api, this is similar to how how wordpress does it, I think.

I currently use the xorewite modules hack which is pretty old but seems to work with recent versions, it lets you remove /modules/ as well as rename modules so xtnews can become simply 'news', etc

However there is issue when using the hack and attempting to use any rewriting currently built in to xoops modules.

So yea, I think in the core is the best way to go (its coming in 3.0 i believe?)

Responsive xoops theme using CSS3 media queries

Hi Xoopsers,

I have been working on a new theme for my site the last few hours and I thought i would share it with you all since I cant find any posts regarding responsive xoops themes.

The theme is by no means finished but you can view it here playsome.co.uk

If you reduce the browser window you can see the responsive theme in action, especially if you reduce it down to about 480 px wide.

Heres a quick tutorial on how to get started with responsive design.

First thing we need is this meta tag:

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">


Basically it tells the browser to use the default device width and to not scale the page to the browser window (e.g iphone will fit the entire page into a window wihc is very difficult to read and requires zooming in, this stops this)

Secondly we need a css file with the media queries, for example you could call it queries.css and include it in your theme.html. The content of the queries.css looks like this:

@media screen and (max-width980px) {

    
}

@
media screen and (max-width650px) {

    
    
    
}

@
media screen and (max-width480px) {

    
html {
        -
webkit-text-size-adjustnone;
    }
    
}


Then inside the different max-width sizes you need to write rules for the elements you want to change, you dont need to write an entire set of rules as elements will still inherit from the main css file, for example you would need to change rules for say you had a left column floated left and a right column floated right in the main css file, in the queries file you would right a rule to say float:none; so when the browser window is small it will be a one column layout.

Anyway, take a look at the theme on the site playsome.co.uk and let me know what you think.

Re: Left (menu) block, split <{$block.content}> items to separate lines?

In your theme css file (http://www.havenswatch.com/themes/wow2/style.css)

add this rule

#mainmenu a
{
display:block;
}

and you should be good to go.

Re: Left (menu) block, split <{$block.content}> items to separate lines?

I cant tell from your code where the menu would be, there is no menu code.

look at your source code or use firebug for firefox and locate the menu code which will be <a> tags, find the containing element i.e div class="mainMenu"

and in css put something like

.mainMenu a
{
display:block;
}

you'll need other css properties in their aswell.

or...post a link to your site and i'll take a look.

Re: 2.5.4 hangs during install

Hi,

what are you using as your local server? WAMP, XAMP or something else?

I cant think what would be wrong maybe check all services are running, check if theres any issue with your firewall, etc.

Is there any error or is it like its just timing out at that stage? Can you install xoops on a test directory of a live server? it could be some local issue if its a server on your computer.

Re: Left (menu) block, split <{$block.content}> items to separate lines?

If this is the user menu you want to display one link on a line, the usermenu template should have an id attribute so the answer lieas in the css file of the theme.

You probably need something like this:

#usermenu a {background-color: transparent; display: block; margin: 0; padding: 2px; font-weight : normal; color:#181818;}


the display:block property is what you need to achieve your desired result.

To show you what i mean heres 2 screenshots

Resized Image

no display:block

Resized Image

has display:block

is this what your trying to achieve?
