I think what Liquid highlighted is very valuable and insightful. Don't let this debate come down to grubby mud slinging or finger pointing. And pleaaaase.. don't even start the "he did it first" cos you're all much more older than that I hope.

If I may make a simple suggestion to Brash. Just call it a Beta testing club and members of the BETA club get first bash at BETA testing the module before public release for public scrutiny.

I seriously don't understand why everyone is getting SO UPSET about this.

If I look at the end result they are the same.

a. group develop module - release it to the public for testing (ie release candidate) then it become public final version. Public donation welcomed.

b. Brash commissioned someone to develop module - ask for public donation to spread cost. Decided to release module to donators for a short period before releasing to public as final version. All donations welcomed.


If Brash had kept quiet about it and just emailed the files to his donators, none of you would be making a big fuss about this. Eventually a public copy is still made available at the end.

Hey guess what? I've just donated money last week for someone to enhance a module for me. I'm using it on a website that is about to go live before the end of this month. This module does exactly what another module do. But the module developer wanted to further tweak the files before releasing it to the public. I get to use it first because of my donation (plus I need it urgently). Any problem with that?

Seriously, and I mean it, why don't you people take this debate into a private forum, fight it out among yourself, come back with a verdict before more of you start deleting your XOOPS accounts and become another casualty in a forking scenario?

I don't really care what the semantic of this discussion is - the law is the law - go ask for mediation because as far as I can see both parties believe they are following the gospel truth and neither seem willing to compromise.

You have no idea what this discussion is beginning to sound like to me (and others I reckon).

Won't someone please think of the children?

Chainsaw- Thanks for the idea, but from what I can tell after installing and testing it, Liase does NOT support ATTACHMENTS, and this is critical for what I need.

Thanks guys!

No worries, I've already commissioned BrandyCoke to enhance Liase to include a file upload function.

Barbary,

I'm also looking for the same thing but I found Liase to be a better choice due to its redirect URL and cleaner look.

I've contacted www.brandycoke.com to ask if they can enhance Liase with a digital photo upload function. I told them I am willing to pay for the enhancement and for them to release it back to the GPL community when finished.

You might want to try their module and contact them for the same enhancement.

Sorry if others have mentioned this before but I am an IT Manager by profession and yes I would pay for a module to be developed or modified to suit my commercial purpose.

I would be quite happy for the modified/developed module to be released back into GPL community for everyone to use (provided of course that the module didn't cost me $10's of thousands of dollars for a new module).

As an example - I'm wanting to have a contact form function where the user can

a. load a digital photo
b. after submitting, be directed to a secured payment page

I could commission the module developer (or someone) to modify the formulaire module for me and pay for it. Once it has been done, I am quite happy to release it back to the community for free use.

WFS-Channel is a module that you can download from the module repository.

All my static pages eg About Us, Our Vision etc are done on WFS-Channel.

You need to install it first, then create a PHP Block containing that code which refers to the correct record.

You mean like what I've done with my website?

My church pastor updates the WFS-channel index page and it is displayed on the home page using a php-block.

I've posted in this thread what I've done.

I use multi-menu. But after playing around with the various formats I went back to good ol' faithful standard format.

Well, I noticed this problem both in IE and FF when I posted this news article at my website. The picture had overlapped as well.

Question:

Did you format the picture with bbcode(?) eg Resized Image

or use a HTML tag eg <img src=http://....>

I've found HTML tags to work better than bbcodes...
