Re: Xoops Ajax Comment System?

I'll consider it for next Conjecture version after looking into how other modules use Ajax.

Re: Selling website using XOOPS core sytem

Just because it uses GNU/GPL software doesn't mean that it has to be sold for nothing.

If you have built something that someone else wants to pay for, you can sell it. No problem there.

I could even sell the module, I released earlier today. Nothing in the GNU/GPL prevents me from charging $100 for granting people a downloadable copy. However, I cannot restrict what the buyer does with it - so they can put it up for free download and I can do nothing about it.

I can also tell people that I can sell them a website even if all I'll be doing is send them a copy of XOOPS with a theme and modules that I download from xoops.org - that would not breach any license either. It would be rather stupid of them to pay for what they can download, but it would not be against any rules.

If you have a website that you can get (enough) money for, then what they are buying is:
1) The domain
2) The concept
3) Your work in setting it up
4) Your visitors

And that should be worth something. If it is worth more than the company is willing to pay, you should keep it - but if the offer is good enough, I'd say go for it. (This obviously depends on how much time, effort and love, you have put into the site, concept etc. and how things are progressing - I mean, the YouTube guys probably loved their site and watching it grow, but seriously, enough money can buy a lot of love )

If it all goes haywire after the buy, you can always build a new site, the way _you_ want it done

Anyway, it's your choice, XOOPS will love you either way.

Re: PHP Error in class.newsstory.php (Stories module)

It is a PHP 5 related problem.

I cannot remember the actual details from when I experienced it first.

I think the problem is that there is a call to $this->something() from within a class function that is called like this:
NewsStory::doSomething()

It is called statically (with :: instead of -> on an object) and then $this doesn't exist in the class function.

Could you paste the whole function code of the function that is around line 135?

Re: Xajax+Xoops Smarty Templates

I did wonder, whether there was any difference from what I had said

Any time.

Rather use the database object - that's why it is there.

To only get active members, add a clause of

Re: Open Source and Industry Standard

Right. People shouldn't get XOOPS because it is XOOPS. They should get it because it fulfils their needs.

License fees is one thing to consider, when looking at solutions, but there are so many other things to consider:

- Vendor lock-in
- Support
- Development and customisations
- Compatibility with current work processes

And although it is brightening on the support front, there are still too few consultancy companies with XOOPS expertise who can build modules and themes for them.

I firmly believe that XOOPS can be a good solution for most companies, but it depends on what they need. If they want a turnkey solution that just has to be plugged in and can then be configured to do whatever they want, XOOPS may not be the answer for them.

But if they want a flexible solution that they can either educate current IT staff or hire consultants to develop customised modules and theme for, XOOPS is one of the best and easiest systems to use.

Re: Registration restrictions ?

You can also change _US_INVALIDMAIL to a text string saying that the site is only open to users with .mil email addresses

Re: man whats wrong with my oninstall function.?

any PHP errors about failing to open a file?

Note that the file specified in $modversion is relative to the module's root folder, so the file oninstall.php should reside in /modules/xmspotlight/

Also note that the array index is case sensitive, so try changing it to
$modversion['onInstall'] = "oninstall.php";
(capital I in onInstall)

PS: Your capitalisation of each word is enormously disrupting for the readability

Re: Problems with my site after I install Chess module!

the chess module uses a smarty modifier that is not accessible by XOOPS. Does the readme say anything about it?

Otherwise, look for a file called something like modifier.xoops_format_date.php and copy it to XOOPS_ROOT/class/smarty/plugins/
