To be honest, the only thing that I can think of right now is to implement a means for users to be able to join or quit certain groups at will, without the need for moderator input.

I can see this as a useful feature in quite a number of circumstances.

Regards,
Dan

It is very clear what you have answered, many thanks for your time. I completely understand how I must think the structure of my site.

Maybe I will start to look into module making later :)

Best regards,
Dan

But why then such a strict recommendation in the manuals?

I realize that I can probably organize the groups the way I want, but my point is to try to avoid as many conflicts as possible straight from the beginning.

I read about Group Manager, though I am still not aware about all of its functions, and will start actually using the whole software today in order to learn more about it, so I am just trying to be as prepared as possible.

Thank you.
Dan

Great, thank you.

Just shows that I still haven't fiddled enough with the software itself just yet.

Hello again,

I have one question about the Registration procedure.

I want to allow only specific persons to register on my site, but too many to make accounts for them by myself. I want the user to go through a registration procedure, that will be waiting for my personal approval for completion, after I verify the identity of the user.

Can this be accomplished?

Thank you.
Dan

Hello everybody,

I have discovered Xoops 3 days ago and I have been spending quite a few hours reading the manuals in order to prepare for the actual building of my site. I find everything to be very clear and simple so far, so good job on the documentation.

I haven't played with the Xoops more than just installing it, so I may be asking questions that are obvious in the actual installation but not as obvious to me in the manuals.

I have 2 questions concerning Groups.


Let's say that I want to make a site for people who like different types of food. So I have two groups: Soup, and Stake. Users will join the group depending on what they like more in order to read either news about soup or about stake. But if one user likes both just as much, than that user will want to belong to the 2 groups in order to read the news about both, and I want to allow it.

In the documentation it is written clearly that belonging to more than 1 group is not recommended, and I can probably understand why.

Q. 1
Is there a "best practice" if I want to allow it, in order to avoid conflicts?

Q. 2
Can I allow the users to select by themselves the groups that they want to join or quit, for example when editing their profile and checking a Soup or/and Stake check box under preferences?

Thank you for your patience in reading this and for any advice that you may have.

Dan
