Does involve site design, installation, hosting, etc.?

Or is this and existing Postnuke and XOOPS site that you just want the DB converted for?

Any of the above is within the scope of my company: Out of the Box Solutions, Inc. Please use the contact form on the OBS site if you would like a quote.

There is nothing really XOOPS specifif in a theme.

You are having the same cross browser issues that every webesigner faces. Do some general reasearch. Look at sites that look good in both and learn from them.

In short, there is no magic XOOPS tag to tell IE not to screw things up.

Thank you Bill Gates. Thank you for telling me not only what browser I should use, but also what OS I must.

Don't forget, there is no IE for Linux. So it is much TOO HIGH a price to pay.

Just IMHO of course.

Re: Xoops vs. Java Portals

Herko's comments are on point. Most Java portals are a framework for portlets that interface to other back end systems. Jetspeed is a perfect example of this. Liferay does this too, but allows for some more coding within the portal itself.

The PHP portals are really less portals in this traditional sense, and more of an application framework. For instance, 90% of XOOPS modules use the XOOPS core classes, and keep their data in MySql in XOOPS controlled tables. As you see, you use XOOPS as a framework to create XOOPS assisted applications.

To some people (Big Corps) Portals are a way to bring disperate systems to a single user interface and signon. The Java portals are geared toward that. They often do not provide a core data access functionality. They may provide user authentication and session management, but this information is then passed on to other applications completely seperate from the portal. It is not uncommon for applicaitions in a Java portal to have existed prior to the portal being created and the portal is simply another way of accessing the data. Java is good for this because of it's strength as a web scripting language and as a robust traditional programming language. PHP does not have both options.

Java portal tend to be very complex to set up, and once set up, only a very minimum framwork to be expanded by custom development.

I want complete web apps not integrated legacy apps. Therefore I choose the simpler XOOPS to the Java engines. With that simplicity comes a complete out of the box system, but also limitations to what I can do.

Hope this helps.

You follow the instructions in the README file.

You copy the module dir and rename it to tinycontent0, tinycontent1, etc.

I hacked it to have 25 copies because 10 was cutting it short for some of my sites.

I am stuck in the past dude!

2.0.7x

There was a lot of posts about 2.0.9 so I held off. I am glad to hear that it is there though.

Thanks,

That module was developed for my company. I can't believe I did not think of it. It is however too difficult to configure for a simple user layout placement. It would be a good start though....

If I had thought of it at the time, I would have had Mith emulate the Liferay interface for the OBS_Classrooms module.... Maybe a redesign would interest him....

The validator said something about inline vs absolute elements. Form and table must be different types of elements. on can be inside of the other but not vice versa.

// In mainfile.php
// change this line
define('XOOPS_URL''https: //www.example.org');

// to the following
$port $HTTP_SERVER_VARS['SERVER_PORT'];
if(
$port == "443"){
  
define('XOOPS_URL''https: //www.example.org');
} else {
  
define('XOOPS_URL''http: //www.example.org');
}


Worked for me.

Is it possible to see all of the groups a user belongs to?

This would seem to be a really simple thing. I would think it would be on the user info page.

Any help?
