Based on. After using Invision Board for a while, I've gotten used to the ability to make a whole group based on another group. This is a time saver and seems like a good idea to have. When making a group, you base it on another group and have all of the permissions of that group copied over to your new one and you edit from there. So it would be like this:

Group A exists

Group B is being made

You click the button next to Group A to base it on group A. Group B starts out with all the abilities Group A has, and you just edit from there. This is helpful if you have eleventy seven mods installed like some of my sites have. That way you don't have to click all 2000 check boxes for things that show up on the front page and hope you didn't miss one.



Another request:

Placement hiding for Groups. This way the groups that you designate (Admins and Moderators usually) would be able to hide where they are on the site. When someone clicks a link they can see which part of the site specific people are on. This may help keep idiots from being morons on the site.

Why not just make these pages available to be turned on or off like the banners can be? Make it a preference to the admin, or go one step more and make it a preference to the user, but with the admin having the final say? User can choose, but if admin says otherwise, it goes the way the admin says. That kind of thing.

Note to Self: Important Xoops Information

1. When it says delete 'install' folder, do not delete 'includes' folder.

2. Erasing mainfile.php will only help the site stop working.

3. Read the instructions for the mod before complaining about it not working.

You guys ever do something dumb with xoops? Share.

isn't that one weBLog? I didn't think that one would give users the ability to do their own blogs.

Ok, here is what I want to do. I would like to be able to give my registered users the ability to blog on my site. I've seen the blogging mods on this site and they seem to only work for the admins. I want the registered users to be able to blog. The site I run is all about user interactivity and giving them the ability to do more. I'd like to give them this option.

odd...i have the exact opposite of that problem

None of my users have to wait to be approved. They all upload to a public gallery and they are approved instantly, even though I have it set that they have to b approved first.

Tried Nuke, hated it. Tried Xoops, been using it ever since. I have 4 sites currently running on Xoops. This CMS is very user friendly and has a community that backs it up better than any I have seen. Go with XOOPS or I'll delete you from The Matrix.

Try the update again to the current XOOPS and make sure that each file that you are uploading actually overwrites the files it is supposed to be overwriting. That was my problem with getting the invisionboard mod to work and to get my version of XOOPS 2.0.3 to update to anything higher at all. I turned out the files just weren't being overwriten.

Before you do this, make sure that you have chmod'd these folders in the ipboard folder to 777:

archive_in
archive_out
cache
lang
Skin
style_images
uploads

Those are the folders that Invision Board says to chmod when doing a normal installation of the software, so I assume it is the same for the mod as well. Also, make sure that you chmod the skin folder S1 (it is inside the Skin folder) and all of the files inside of it.


To change the Header, you need to go to the InvisionBoard admin panel, go down to Skins & Templates and choose Manage Skin Sets. You should be using the one called "Invision Power Board". Click HTML (right below the skin title). Use the Quicklinks drop down menu and go to Edit Board Header. The Board header (logo links ect) is what you need to change. This is what I have in mine:


Quote:
<script language='JavaScript' type="text/javascript">
<!--
function buddy_pop() { window.open('index.{ibf.vars.php_ext}?act=buddy&s={ibf.session_id}','BrowserBuddy','width=250,height=500,resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes'); }
function chat_pop(cw,ch) { window.open('index.{ibf.vars.php_ext}?s={ibf.session_id}&act=chat&pop=1','Chat','width='+cw+',height='+ch+',resizable=yes,scrollbars=yes'); }
function multi_page_jump( url_bit, total_posts, per_page )
{
pages = 1; cur_st = parseInt("{$ibforums->input['st']}"); cur_page = 1;
if ( total_posts % per_page == 0 ) { pages = total_posts / per_page; }
else { pages = Math.ceil( total_posts / per_page ); }
msg = "{ibf.lang.tpl_q1}" + " " + pages;
if ( cur_st > 0 ) { cur_page = cur_st / per_page; cur_page = cur_page -1; }
show_page = 1;
if ( cur_page < pages ) { show_page = cur_page + 1; }
if ( cur_page >= pages ) { show_page = cur_page - 1; }
else { show_page = cur_page + 1; }
userPage = prompt( msg, show_page );
if ( userPage > 0 ) {
if ( userPage < 1 ) { userPage = 1; }
if ( userPage > pages ) { userPage = pages; }
if ( userPage == 1 ) { start = 0; }
else { start = (userPage - 1) * per_page; }
window.location = url_bit + "&st=" + start;
}
}
//-->
</script>

<!--IBF.BANNER-->
<div id='logostrip'>
<% MEMBER BAR %>
<br />
</div>


That will make it look the way the top of mine looks. Hope this helps.
