I have to fully agree with sbkiller Quote:
...you need to take a long time for trials and errors and then once you get it you can do everything you want.


The issues you have stumbled upon, is one, which is just being resolved. It is that of a chaotic module development. With the opening ofhttp://dev.xoops.org/ and the soon to openhttp://modules.xoops.org/, this will be resolved, but will still take some time.

Never the less I believe for your primary problem, there is a solution. Please take a look at ArMS. There it says:
Quote:

Description:
ArMS (Article Management System) is XOOPS 2 module for managing multipage articles, tutorijals and everything else that has multipage text content.

Key features:

- 4 level data strucure:
-- categories
--- section
---- articles
----- pages
- crossposting (one article in more than one section)
- coauthoring (author of article can add extra permission to other users to help him write and maintain article)
- rating 1 - 5 (in ArMS 0.4 it is option - can be turned off from admin)
- XOOPS comments and search
- articles can be OnHold (article is not finished)
- smart hiding (if category or section is empty it will be hidden)
- blocks


And I can only recommend taking a look at the other suggestion from sbkiller, the Multi Menu module. The might come in handy.

Unfortunatly still in beta, but maybe of this interest is a project from a couple of student over at UC Berkeley, related to the UCberkley_liquid theme, they are creating a module, that Quote:
allows webmasters to easily deploy a site based on tabs and sub-tabs (like apple.com)
, labbeled with the shortform Tab Mod.

Hope this is helpful to you, and might convince you to stay with us

Hi there!

If try to enter the template manager in the sys admin section, it stops mid way.

Debugger gives me the following message:

Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in /home/jayro/public_html/jason/modules/system/admin/tplsets/main.php on line 93

Can anyone help?

ThanX ChadK for this module. I haven't tested it yet, though a visit to your site told me: I WANT THAT MODULE!!!

Great idea and implementation. I will testdrive it, and send/post my comments in a couple of hours.

Keep up the great work!

Well, I guess we both stumbled accross the Dark Side Of XOOPS.

My blocks are still gone. only the center (main) block is visible.

EDIT1
I'm off to bed, without any block menu visible

I've set the visibility on and then back on, to no avail. I changed ranks, and all kinds of settings, back and forward, haping that it may do something. But NO. The templates are fine, the theme template is fine, the database files are all there and fine, ...

<cite><code>
<div id="LeftColumn">
<!-- Start left blocks loop -->
<{foreach item=block from=$xoops_lblocks}>
<{include file="default/theme_blockleft.html"}>
<{/foreach}>
<!-- End left blocks loop -->
</div>

<{if $xoops_showrblock == 1}>
<div id="RightColumn">
<!-- Start right blocks loop -->
<{foreach item=block from=$xoops_rblocks}>
<{include file="default/theme_blockright.html"}>
<{/foreach}>
<!-- End right blocks loop -->
</code></cite>

This is from my template, and this is how it looks after it has gone through the server:

<cite><code>
<div id="LeftColumn">
<!-- Start left blocks loop -->
<!-- End left blocks loop -->
</div>

<div id="RightColumn">
<!-- Start right blocks loop -->
<!-- End right blocks loop -->
</code></cite>

BUT in my block admin, everything is set to visible. Confirmed by checking the DB tables.

I would be very glad if someone could give me any advice, where to look!

I'm just experiencing the same problem, a couple of hours after actually first reading your post.

Have you got C-JAY Content installed?

I am pretty sure it has to do with this module.

It somehow seems to mess with the block menu entries. I just haven't figured out yet, where, what exactly is happening.

This is a screen shot of my Block Admin section, displaying the C-JAY Content part, with a string that doesn't belong there. I am guessing, the script inserted this string into the database, which screwed up the menu block settings.

I'll get back, as soon as I have found out more.

I would put the center "Recent Forums Posts" at the bottom. This is something that also annoys me about xoops.org. As a regular user, of course I am interested in forum postings, but first...The News! Place it at the bottom of the page.

Try to get that intro even shorter, and post a link to a mission statement, where you elaborate further. Many words used in the intro are just repetition.

And I have to agree with the previous poster, try and reduce the number of blocks. There are a few too many (does the annonymous user have to know who's online, who are the newest members?), try to use blocks more section specific.

Besides that, I enjoyed looking and judging your efforts;) Keep up the good work! (created a new webicon for your site - sent a contact notice via the site; just in casehttp://jason.jayro.net/uploads/libervisWebicon.ico ; just had to do something, after I couldn't make out the existing one)

Try:
http://www.yoursite.com/user.php

this should give you the login page. Bookmark that page, then you can leave the login for others unnoticed, while you have the link to the login page for admin purposes.

Had the same issue, only to discover, that while most modules install with the permission correctly set, others (like the given examples) install with permission restrictions, that prevent the php script to access the module.
Try changing the permissions manually (files to 644, folders to 755).

Now all causes that I know off, that have caused such effects, have been listed. You should have your problems resolved by now.
