If your site were a XOOPS site, it would be easy. You would set up an "admin" user group with the appropriate permission levels. she would log in and go to the admin area of the site and would only see the news, static page, or whatever module she wants to edit. All she would need is the info she wants to add and an internet connection.

If you are looking for answers on your site as is, I can't help you.

I use a module called Page wrap. I remember it being hard to find on this site so I saved it. I do not remember where I got my hands on it. It is available for download on my site at http://xoops.mattregister.com in the downloads section.

You also need to make sure that anon users have access to the module (from the same screen).

You have a group permission problem. Go to system/groups and click on the anonymous user group. All of those blocks need to be checked for an anonymous (non-logged in) user to view them.

I would not give up! Your XOOPS site is going to be easier to work with and infinately more functional. I would certainly put some effort into theming your site. Your theme looks very similar to the XOOPS default theme. It does not have to.

The one drawback I see with XOOPS is the asthetics of the default theme and backend of the site. There is all of this functionality there hidden under an ugly interface and it makes it a hard sell.

If I were you, I would put some thought and effort into coming up with a way to make your site not look like a XOOPS site and making it as pretty as possible. I would make a couple of themes and have the members pick which one they want to use. You are going to have to make this an easy decision for them. Get the theme looking good and they will see past it and see the functionality of xoops.

The bottom line: Pretty sells, ugly does not. All of the functionality in the world hidden under an ugly theme is going to be wasted on the members.

Here are a couple of examples of themes that (I have been told) do not look like boxy XOOPS sites: (all of these are modifications to available XOOPS themes.

There are countless examples out there.

Does anyone know of a good (open source) stats program that I can run from my web space? Possibly that stores the data in mysql?

I am looking to scrape the geo data from there and have a module with a google map with pins from the site visitors. this is really the only data I need and would be the only thing offered to the viewers of the site (the map with the visitor locations).

Since I can't use the data from Google analytics easily, I will have to do it myself. If anyone has any recommendations I am all ears. Thanks.

I know this is probably plasphemous to say here, but I tried every photo gallery available for XOOPS and was not extremely happy with any of them. I needed something where I could batch load, automatically size and watermark, and be extremely easy where I could have a very non technical person could upload and organize without much effort.

The answer I cam up with was tiny web gallery (http://tinywebgallery.com) framed into XOOPS with a page wrap module. It works for me and is the easiest by far to add pics to.

All easy enough to fix.

- I toned down the background...way down.
- The Red bg image for my td style was left over from the last time I used that theme. thanks for catching it.
- changed the link and hover colors.
- I need to work on the blocks offered with the wordpress module right out of the box. The sidebar block id from there.
- I like the bittbox graphics too. I will end up modifying them. that is what I was afraid of, everybody would recognize it.

Guys thanks for the feedback. I have some time to tweak this before I have to use it. The colors I am stuck with, at least for this one.

Buggy- the kubrick themes are a great starting point for whatever you want to do. I almost always start with them.
-Matt
