I also have a need for a module like this, but have found nothing suitable.

I really do not have the time, but I think I'm going to end having to write one myself... :(

I try and not assume things as I am not psychic and do not know your level of knowledge with XOOPS.

You'd be surprised the times I have seen people have this exact problem because they didn't know about that setting.

Seriously, I wonder why I bother trying to help at times.

When you are making changes to templates, you need to go into the general settings and set "Check templates for modifications ?" to "yes" - otherwise it won't get updated.

Once you have finished, turn it back off again.

I don't recommend the use of these "free" domain registration places - there's usually some sort of catch somewhere.

Either they tie you into their own web hosting solution and/or they retain "ownership" of the domain, and then will want a ridiculous amount of money to transfer it over to you.

Best thing is to find someone in your country that accepts cheques or postal orders, or similar.

Have you checked how much web space you have spare?

This could be a symptom of running out of web space as the template cache fills up over time (I had this on one of my sites...)

That's good to hear. Or read. Whichever, it's good news.

It does seem to be somewhat of a knee-jerk reaction to something that would have been extremely easy to fix.

However, I will say that the module naming standards, the module layout standards and what other files that are expected to be included in modules have been on the dev wiki for at least a year, and most module maintainers have followed most of these standards, so it's not really an excuse.

The following section on the dev wiki has all of these details.

I am disappointed, and wish things hadn't come to this, but it does seem like a convenient excuse to pull away from XOOPS entirely.

That is a must as it would be open to abuse where anyone could link to a version with a virus or some other "malware".

I don't want to tread over old ground again, but I really do think that not including beta/rc releases is a mistake. There are many perfectly usable modules out there that are still in beta or RC status (for whatever reason).

Bender (I think it was) did say authors can use the news module to announce them, but the problem with that is that not everyone checks the news regularly and go straight to the repository looking for modules, without using the search function.

Personally, I think each category should have a "beta modules" sub category, with appropriate notices, then leave the decision up to the visitor whether or not they are willing to use a beta/RC module.

It may mean a bit more work for maintainers, but it would help centralise the modules a bit more, and help save people having to Google for modules as much, which I have seen quite a few people moan about.
