Re: xoops 2.2 features into 2.0.x

You mean the administration area navigation?
Yeah, a revamp of that would be nice, but since it is a major part of XOOPS 2.3/2.4, I wouldn't bet on anyone in the core development team spending too much time on that.

It is naturally possible to change things in that area, but it will always be a core hack and thus less resilient to changes in the core.

Re: What does the level attribute in xoops_users table represent?

the -1 = disabled is - so far - a XOOPS 2.2-only level.

Apart from that, you should only worry about 0 (not activated) and >0 (activated). Level 5 is given to the user created through the setup process, but is effectively the same as level 1.

My guess is that it is a leftover from earlier days, when the group permissions were not as good as they are today and we needed a way to specify an administrator specifically on the user profile.

Re: What's a good code text editor to use?

Didn't know about Weaverslave - looks quite capable.

I have not yet found Eclipse usable, due to its Java nature of having a project somewhere fixed where you build new stuff. I like to be able to have my PHP code anywhere I want and load it into a project without the files moving around.

It may be that Eclipse supports that, but I haven't figured it out yet.

My own preference is Zend Studio - it is expensive, but an awesome tool with many functions such as direct FTP and SQL browsing. It also has CVS and SVN integrated, although I have yet to get that working properly.

Re: Help With Creating a Module

Have you read the module development guide on the dev wiki?

http://dev.xoops.org/modules/phpwiki/index.php/ModuleDevGuide

especially the part about xoops_version.php
http://dev.xoops.org/modules/phpwiki/index.php/ModVersion
can be useful.

it is not said very explicitly, but for the module to be recognised by XOOPS as a module with front-side pages, you have to put
modversion['hasMain'] = 1;

in your xoops_version.php (then update the module) - then it will show up in groups management and you can assign module access permissions.

Re: Club Module

You'll need to be more specific before anyone can help you.

What do you mean, when you say "administrate a club"? Which functionality do you need?

Re: About caching...

The idea is generally good and something I have implemented in some modules already (article module for cw.dk and OBS_Classroom, the latter is available athttp://xoops.web-udvikling.dk).

The main challenge when making a generic system-wide solution is that there is practically no way that the core can know which pages are influenced by a change.

I mean - say we write a reply to a forum thead. Then the thread needs updating, the forum page needs updating and perhaps the top-level forum listing page needs updating.
Not to mention that any blocks showing the latest threads, latest posts or most active threads will also need updating.

The only one, who can actually know this, is the module developer - and even then, the blocks updating will be quite difficult.

So I'd say that module content can be cached and updated with this method, but blocks are more of a challenge, and it will not be easy to implement with core "magic" but must be implemented in the individual modules.

Re: Have you notice Smarty got updated?

I agree with Dave that it doesn't seem to impact performance much, but "just" bugfixes.

However, I am very happy to see the XHTML compliant debug.tpl since it is annoying for me (and anyone else using the Tidy firefox plugin) to have many XHTML warnings when Smarty debug is enabled.

Re: a Conjecture for others forums?

I have made Conjecture v2.01

that should work with SMF using a different database from XOOPS. I have tested it and the assign-forums-to-modules procedure works, but I seem to have some configuration problems on my server, because I get fatal errors when including smf_path/SSI.php due to something I cannot quite fathom. But I am also unable to log into SMF through the SMF/XOOPS bridge, so something else might be wrong.

Give it a spin and I hope it fans out well.

Re: a Conjecture for others forums?

Thanks for the feedback, I'll try to answer well:

1. I had not really considered (I had had the thought, but not considered it for long ) that SMF and XOOPS might be installed with separate databases, so that is most likely the reason why it won't work.
I'll change Conjecture so that it works with this, just thought that I could save a step by reusing XOOPS' database abstraction layer.

2. @Banned: How can I set "correct path for Settings.php (or ssi.php)" when I don't know where SMF is installed? Besides, login stuff etc. should be synchronised, so the bridge will be if not necessary then at least desirable.

3. @Orstio: I am at a loss here, since it is a normal module it should install just like any other module. Can you upload another module and see if that shows up correctly in the modules administration?

Re: a Conjecture for others forums?

"Assign forums" means assigning which forum to add threads in for which module.

You can e.g. have one forum for comments to your News, another forum for comments to your Partners and another forum, where you put threads about both articles and downloads.

But it seems there is a problem with retrieving the forum list from SMF - I'll take a look at it at earliest convenience, unless Orstio or another one beats me to it (if anyone wants to give it a go, look at the conjecture/class/bridge/smf.php file).
