Re: Module Developers 1 v Theme Designers 0

To be honest, I saw this thread last month and was wondering how designers would react on this. As no one wants to react, I just want to give my piece of mind.
The current structure of designing a theme for XOOPS and it's common modules is easy, sure, but making all modules visually compatible to a theme is a war you can't win. A big step was introducing, the odd, even, outer classes. Alot of modules addapted this standard of displaying content, but was/is really limited. For instance, you don't want your forum to look like a news article or wiki entry.

Another limitation I experienced (design wise) is the lack of total freedom when you use XOOPS in combination with modules. I can't move content around at places where I want them to be. For instance: If I prepare a news article explaining about a new download I can't display the download in it's full glory next to the news article. The current XOOPS setup, as it is modular, is not flexible. Yeah I can use blocks, ofcourse, but they are often very limited, limited as in diplaying content.

Do I have a solution?
No, not really. I do can bring/discuss some experience I had with other cms/blog systems. I'm not going to help in developing module templates for module builders, as I see it a wast of time creating 20+ module tempates that potentially look wrong in 100+ theme designs. But maybe this post can bring a discussion to life.

So much for now,...

You're kinda saying, "I'm not going to discuss the content, but I sure am".

I wasn't planning reacting at all to this thread, but my humanity side of mind makes me feel kinda sick seeing XOOPS is used to promote death. Yeah yeah, I know,.what would I think when my wife or kids were raped and killed. But remember, what about the prooven unguilty people that are murdered legaly by the US goverment? Well,.have fun, horay for evolution.

Re: CBB 4.0 Pains

Well,.there aren't alot of options around concerning XOOPS and forum modules. I know the fellows of Wordpress.org just released their plain and simple forum plugin BBPress which runs on its own. You can intergrate it with Wordpress using the same userbase. Maybe it is possible to run it next to Xoops,,,just a thought.

Re: define Standard Templates for theme developers - your idea

Well okay,.as Will already said, it is not a contest, but more a "choose the right color that look nice in my morphthing" (which give me phpnuke dejavu's as people were able to change bgcolor1,.. etc with ease)

Kris then gives indeed a few (10 I believe) themes made with the morphthing as an example that people are willing and able to make nice themes using his templates (well, he doen't tell that the're almost all build by himself). So yes, the contest is a farce with a total lack of freedom, freedom designers need(!) to put their minds on paper and code.

Just my two cents, and btw, don't react BS as you don't make sence to me, and I will ignore you for sure.

Re: Do you use Vista?

Well okay, this is a nice thread,

I have two notebooks, one running on w2k for old browser tests, one with Xp and Ubuntu.

One administrative workstation is running Ubuntu, and my own workstation running Xp (although brand new, I still have choosen Xp above Vista, because I buy the hardware for running my design tools, not just to run a bloated os that uses alot of resources). I also would like to run it on Ubuntu, but not only are all my design tools "windows only" also I like to play games, so I'm abit stuck and driven into a corner^^ (and no, wine is no option for me).

Group permission Xoops core 2.2.3

Since a few months a friend of mine has a major problem setting up the group permissions in XOOPS core 2.2.3. Not only does it ignores the changes (when editing a user) but you aren't able to just change them as shown in the screenshot below

(the shot is taken from the "edit goups" option)

phpdebug gives me the following:
