Do you mean within the XOOPS environment, or just running on a site outside of Xoops. I have it running outside of Xoops. It's a nice program and one that someone should port to Xoops.

Thanks for replying. I appreciate your help. I am typing this reply for the second time because i had the same problem of a function not working from my PC. In other words, the problem that I'm having is not specific to my XOOPS site. When I tried to post the reply from my XP machine, I got an error message "Could not post message" or words to that effect. This second attempt is coming from my Mac OS X machine.

I am having this problem on a brand new Dell 8300 running XP. I do have firewalls installed. I have a DSL router that includes a firewall and I run Norton Internet Security Pro 2004. The firewall in the latter is turned off and I check XP's firewall and it is unchecked. Turning all firewalls off does not cure the problem.

To test the system I have used the register link on the home page of my XOOPS development site. When I try to register I can fill out the form and when I click Submit, the user name, email and time zone are displayed. when I click Finish, I get an error message "Could not register user" I get the same error message when I try to register a user while logged in as admin. I get the same error if I try to register using Netscape 7.0. If I try to register from my old PC, also running XP and MSIE and on the same home LAN, it works. The versions of XP and MSIE are earlier, but IE is still version 6. If I register from my Mac, it also works, even when the router firewall is in place.

It appears that this problem is peculiar to the new XP machine. I think there must be some setting in XP or the browsers that is different and interfering with the running of the scripts in Xoops. However, for the life of me I can't figure out what it is. If you have any other suggestions of where to look, I'd really like to hear them.

Thanks,

Barry

I have been working on a XOOPS site and have recently noticed some disturbing inconsistencies in behavior between browsers. For example:

On a brand new PC running Windows XP and MSIE (latest versions), when I try to modify a XOOPS installation, such as inactivating a module, I get an error message. Similarly, I get an error message when trying to register a user, either from the home page (as a new user would) or from the edit user option in the admin pages, when logged in as admin. On a PC running earlier version of XP and IE, I don't have this problem. Using Safari on a Mac OS X 10.3 machine, I don't have these problems.

In the Agendax module, the drop down calendar selector that one uses to insert a date for an item works differently on just about every browser I've tried. On the new XP machine mentioned above, clicking on the icon for the selector does nothing; on the older machine it works, but the calendar selector is spread across the whole page; on Netscape on the new machine it works, but is also spread across the page; on my Mac OS X 10.3 machine using Safari, the selector calendar has the correct appearance, but inserts a fragment of code instead of the date; NS on the Mac works, but spreads the selector across the window.

These inconsistencies are a real concern, particularly those that seem to involve the base XOOPS system. Has anyone experienced similar problems, and is there a solution?

Thanks,

Barry Cooper

Re: PhpBB2 to newBB

After you have done a dump of the phpBB2 tables, then imported them into your XOOPS db, run the converter as a mySQL query.

Having said that, I have been trying to do the same thing using a test installation of XOOPS and am getting errors. I am still trying to work them out.

Does anyone have a script that will work for converting phpBB2 to newBB2? The old script is for newBB1. Note that I have tried using it for both a newBB1 and a newBB2 installation.

External login script

I am currently building the member services of my site, www.aka.org, in XOOPS (which is not public yet). Eventually I might rebuild the whole thing, but that's a big project. I would like, in the meantime, to have a login script on he sites home page, which is not Xoops. I am wondering whether anyone has developed a standalone script that can be run from a page external to Xoops, but that logs the user in, so that when they navigate to the actual XOOPS pages, they are already logged in.

Thanks,

Barry Cooper

Lost sytem module

Hi,

I am a newbie with Xoops, but like it, until .....

After working out on a dev site what modules I wanted to install, I set up my production site. At the very end of installing and setting up prefs for everything, when I click on the link to the administration menu, my system module does not show. Therefore, I can't make any other changes. Is there any way to fix this short of starting again.

Please say there is.

Barry
