I like Drupal, I've been a fan for a while, I also love Joomla, XOOPS, and another un-named CMS too.

If your serious about porting over, then I would consider looking at D3Forum module, this is far more secure, newbb has a few issues, and apparently has flaws which allow people to view private area's, which could be detrimental to your website regarding the data protection act.

D3Forums Module - Download

It might not look as fancy, but you can play with the templates and make it look really special.

There is also Newbbex

Goog luck and have fun with XOOPS

As Peekay, it may have something to do with the sanitiser.

Your best bet would be speaking with one of the main developers here on XOOPS.

I always envisaged the BB code tag, allowing you encapsulate the code, so not sure why it's causing you issues. I'll be honest in saying that I tend not to use the code button on my sites, in fact I tend to code it out as it confuses the heck out of my users.

Report it as a bug too if you wish, this may get some further attention from the developer.

I'm sorry, I'm not entirely sure I understand your second post?

Do mean they use the code tag instead of another one?

If you can please clarify a little further I maybe able to help.

I did a quick scan and see it in two files:

<div class="xiggLink">Powered by <a href="http://xigg.org/" alt="Xigg.org">Xigg</a></div>

modules/Xigg/layouts/default/index.html

The other file is in your admin I believe so that shouldn't matter so much.

There maybe other instances. If you are to remove the notices, then it would perhaps be polite to make some kind of donation to the developer.

Ignore them, there are tons of reasons to remove the front copyrights, here's a few:

Assists in preventing hackers from finding you via google or other search engines, as they search for such terms, XOOPS get's hackers too, don't they Damaster.

Doesn't look professional having credits pasted all over a professional website.

Doesn't look good to your client or your clients customers.

Allows your competition to compete with you easier (IE they know what your doing and how your doing it, without having to do any work themselves).

You can be ranked down in some search engines (see the whole WordPress sponsored footers thing recently).

Links could lead to offensive material when the domain name is not renewed by the developer.

Sites and software like McAfee, have a rating system, and if it leads to a red site, it could also put a mark against yours, leading to a loss of users and possibly customers.

If it was me making the site,I'd probably look at having something like Mastop Go2 module:

http://www.mastop.com.br/produtos/go2/

I'd create an image/banner for seasonal periods, to promote those special reviews for say Valentines day.

For bloggin you could always consider using the Xigg module, looks rather cool, it's a clone of Digg, so people could dig those reviews on your website:

Forum post about Xigg

You could also consider something like Smart Sections from the Smart Factory, that's a pretty cool content module to use:

http://smartfactory.ca/

I'm not sure if XOOPS supports block cloning yet, but if it does you could use that to handle content on the front page from the module blocks.

For mapquest or something similar you could always consider using EFQDirectory:

http://www.efqdirectory.com/

Hope this is of some help to you.

I'd love to see the final product when your done.

There is no simple way to turn all the BB code off, Some modules allow the use of different editors like plain text ones, so there maybe options within those modules.

Not all modules carry this option though, You could however comment the code out of the templates.

Which modules would you want them disabling on, I know you said site-wide, but which ones are these. Also do you wish to do that on comments too.

Did you clear your cache and templates_c folders.

Sometimes the old cached files can cause issues, I experienced this last year when I move a site from one server to another.

Also do you use anything like protector where you may need to make alterations to the mainfile.php with regards to the trustpath?

Another thing, do they always use the same domain ending, or do they use hotmail or such?

If they tend to use their own domain for registering you could always block those domains, in the user info settings:

Admin ---> Preferences ---> User Info Settings

Quote:
Enter emails that should not be used in user profile

Separate each with a |, case insensitive, regex enabled.

Normally the word censor would do it.

Try using the exact domain perhaps?

Do you have msn, if so Private Message me your details and I'll assist you further.
