Re: What is e-Xoops?

This other cms program that doesn't work right and doesn't want to install for me so I say "eat the cheddar!" to it and use XOOPS instead. XOOPS is much easier I assume but since I could never get e-xoops to even load correctly, I have no idea. However, all of their skins appear to be duplicates of the same lame thing and really ugly at that.

Oh, and XOOPS is supported like crazy. There appears to be a lot more going for XOOPS than e-xoops, which was a very original name.

Re: Removing the intermediate flash screen

You mean he just came up with all that for nothing?

Re: Please read if you are having trouble using/installing XOOPS.

Pinned is what a lot of the boards and systems are calling it now. I duno why but I like "pinned" a lot more too.

Re: Bunch-o-stuff

Another idea.

Adding more than one banner option. Say you wanted to put more than one banner rotation thing on your site. This may allow you to get more banner clients if you have block banners (120x60 boxes is the kind I mean). What I am getting as is pretty much just having the option to display more than one banner at a time, instead of just that one banner.

Re: Bunch-o-stuff

Thanks man. I've spent so much time on xmike over the past few months that the jump buttons have become something I almost need to have.

I don't think I'll be putting anything in though. If I tried to mod something to do that I'd somehow explode a server in Brazil.

Bunch-o-stuff

-Ability to make only specific groups have the ability to submit information to modules (news, cal events, classifieds, ect) as well as have the option to upload avatars. This way only certain groups of people will be able to submit an avatar, making you have the abilty to given them an incentive. Example: premium membership to your site would get them in a group that gets to do this stuff. Anyone not premium would have to use what ever avatars you have on the site and would not be able to submit info to the modules.

-A tool to allow you to add and delete specific profile questions. This would help sites who want people to be able to post more info in their profile (such as my site).

-Ability to make the news section appear not only all at once in a block but by category if you want. This way you could have a block that would ony display Site News, or Artist News like mine has.

-Some kind of compression thing to make the images change size afterwards. I don't know if this is possible or not with xoops. There is a board that I go to that allows you to upload avatar images and no matter how big they are, the site changes the size of the image and shrinks it down to the specs that Mike has it set at.

-The ability to re-order the forums and not just the categories. I use phpbb because it has so many more features than the XOOPS forum. Now, I know a lot of people don't need all these extra features but it would be nice to have them included as well.

-Jump buttons on the forums. Jump buttons, in case you don't know what I am talking about, are buttons that are set up by the user so they can go directly to their favorite forum. xMike uses this and it works great. The user selects in their profile which forum they want to have a jump link to and when they do, it appears at the top of the forums page as a number. Like, #1 on mine is the Movies, TV, and Music forum, #4 is the Chill Spot, and so on. It works great on sites with large forums.

I'll probably update this as I think of more stuff.
