Re: Shame to Badger and ilk.

Amazing. I'm reminded once again why I don't come around here much anymore. Every community has nut cases but this is a little different. very sad.

Perhaps the new year will bring some common sense. good luck.

Re: Microsoft Browser compatibility problem (VERY IMPORTANT)

Well it certainly helps to have the actual URL...

I can't say because I'm not on an MS broswer or OS. But I was surprised to see a big ad as the page and some attempt to popup something. Then suddenly it redirected to an XOOPS site.

Is this some kind of freebie hosting server that intercepts calls to the sites or is that redirect and popup by design? My guess is that the problem lies there.

Re: Problem Using Tables on Xoops

I've done tables plenty of times and it works fine. How are you setting it up? Even in a custom block you can use tables.

If the doc type setting is HTML you can do it the normal way.
<table border="1">
   <
tr>
     <
thTH 1</th><thTH 2</th>
   </
tr>
   <
tr>
     <
td>  blah blah </td><tdColumn 2 </td>
   </
tr>
   <
tr>
     <
td>  more blah </td><tdColumn 2 row 3 </td>
   </
tr>
</
table>


should work fine.

Re: pass xoops authentication to other apps in a URL?

An SSO would be ideal but would require major hacks to both sites and that isn't realistic. Future XOOPS might have a working SSO but that too isn't soon and I'll be on 2.0x for the near future and probably longer.

Things like LDAP aren't ideal if both servers can't reach the same authentication system.

It turns out that dotproject is easily hacked (two lines) to accept a remote login (they do it for nuke->dotproject logins). I was able to test an xoops->dotproject login. Now to figure out how to work with the hashed passwords. I'm almost there....

Re: pass xoops authentication to other apps in a URL?

To answer part of my question:
I can grab the current user and hashed password with:
$xoopsUser->getVar('uname') for example.

I can build a link URL with the info. Now to make dotproject accept the variables and login. That part isn't XOOPS related.

So far so good...

pass xoops authentication to other apps in a URL?

I have two projects on the go, one that has external scripts accessing dbs other than XOOPS and a dotproject site that would be nice to integrate with xoops.

I took some standalone php scripts and put them in a content module and that worked nicely. The scripts access dbs othan than the local XOOPS db. I'm now looking at ways to either modulerize the scripts or at least pass XOOPS credentials to the scripts. The content module controls access to the scripts but I'll want to go deeper.

I found a way (untested so far) to grab xoopsUser data that i can use in my scripts. That should work for scripts located on the same server.

Is there an easy way to pass the current user credentials (name and password) to an external site URL? I can easily link the site from XOOPS but I'd want to save a login if I can.

BTW, if anyone is looking at dotproject (www.dotproject.net) integration I'm interested. They have a nuke version but so far nobody is doing a XOOPS version.

Re: XOOP gallary and BLOBs

Interesting loophole in the server specs...
But you might find that the host server will get bogged down if you are pulling a huge quantity of db data.

You might want to look at the core image manager for ideas. It already handles blob storage of images. The image manager needs work anyway so if you're a good coder it might help the core devs if you come up with improvements.

Re: xoops gallery request

If I understand the question, xoopsgallery is weak on this but excels at other aspects. I hope the developer finds the time to keep up with the standalone gallery project now that it finally reached version 2.x. Developers out there willing to help??

This is what I do to simulate this: I create a base album and give registered (or other more narrowly defined) group rights to create sub albums. I detail instructions to the users to create their sub album (and then further sub albums within their own as needed) and give it a name that identifies them. It is then easy to get the URL of their base album for use elsewhere on the site.

I then follow behind them on occasion to narrow the ownership of their 1st level album to that user. My users are well behaved and so far have never messed up other people's albums (but admin should manually set ownership once in a while).

Even though my gallery has 10,000+ pics it is relatively few users that actually contribute so the occasional manual admin work isn't a big problem.

Re: news.google.com module

I use RSS to do this easily. google and news.google allows for custom RSS by copying the current RSS link on a page after navigating to the desired category or search results page. This works very well for me and is much better than other news /RSS aggretate servers out there.
