I just took a look at your site. Looks like you're on the right track.

As for the simple home page, you can set the "Module for your start page" tp "none". Then you can add blocks (and custom blocks) and set them to only show on the top page.

I just blew away my very first XOOPS site and have begun redoing it. That is how I've set it up. You can see it at www.dconline.org. Not much content yet (really only the front page is done, minus the menu system that I still need to implement), but you can see what I'm talking about.

Keep up the good work!

I'm having the same issue with 2.0.13.2 and extcal 2.02a. I posted the problem in the extcal forum. Another user posted a fix that required making changed to extcal and one of the XOOPS core files. His change was for 2.2.3.

I found the same code in 2.0.13.2, so I tried to apply it there as well.

Still doesn't work for me.

The changes that he suggested for extcal fixed the time for logged in users, but the change to functions.php in XOOPS made no difference at all.

This is very frustrating.

Re: Which version of Linux?

OK, I'll bite. Since you got the obligatory Ubuntu commercials and the Red Hat plug, I'll go ahead and throw mine in too - SUSE.

You can download the community version for free (opensuse.org), or purchase a boxed set w/installation support for $59 US. Amazon has it even cheaper.

I currently manage about 120 Red Hat servers where I work, and after 3 years of the Hat, we are switching gears and moving to SUSE (SLES 9). The difference between the 2 is remarkable. I believe SUSE is an excellent example of what Linux can be. It is easy to set up, easy to configure, and rock solid. Linus Torvalds used it himself until he got a Mac and had to switch to a version that ran on Mac hardware.

Of course, if Novell manages to screw up SUSE, I may have to reconsider my personal use of it. If that happens, then I may have to check out Kubuntu.

Re: ho do I get SPAW and how do I update NEWS + a question

I can tell you one way to get the SPAW editor:

Download TinyD. You can find it here.

It comes with Spaw included in a folder called "common". The "common" folder is supposed to go in your XOOPS root directory.

You may have to either tell evennews where to find your SPAW installation or move it to the location that evennews is expecting to find it.

While you're at it, you may want to give TinyD a try if you have a need for a static content module.

Good luck.

Problem with 2.0.13.1 and TinyD/SPAW editor

Greetings,

I didn't put this in the module troubleshooting forum because I believe this is a 2.0.13.1 issue. If that is not the case, I would appreciate it if a mod could move this to the correct forum.


I installed 2.0.13.1 and the latest version of TinyD (2.18). Pages created in wysiwyg mode work fine. Any code added as html (using Html tab in SPAW) disappears as soon as the submit button is pressed. This is both for new and existing pages. Using the XOOPS editor to enter html code works fine.

I have another site using 2.0.13 and TinyD 2.17 that works properly. I went to the 2.0.13.1 site and downgraded TinyD to 2.17 to verify that it was not an issue caused by the latest updates to TinyD. The problem persists the same as it did with 2.18.

So, I now have a 2.0.13.1 site and a 2.0.13, both using TinyD 2.17. 2.0.13 works properly and 2.0.13.1 does not (as described above).

Could it be something to do with the text sanitizer? I don't know, but would certainly appreciate any help that anyone can give me.

I don't want to run 2.0.13 as I know the latest upgrade was a security release, but I also need TinyD to work.

Thank you for whatever help you can provide.

John

Carnuke's description of content is also a very good description for TinyD (TinyContent Duplicatable). It is based on TinyContent. Instead of using FCKeditor, it uses the SPAW editor (you can easily switch between wysiwyg and editing the html directly). The version of SPAW that comes with the current version supports firefox as well as IE.

You can find it at http://www.peak.ne.jp/xoops/


Ultimately, your best bet would be to install them all and see which one works best for you.

I just went out and looked at your site (very, very nice btw), and the block you mentioned appears fine for me.

I'm using Firefox 1.0.6 on Linux just for the record. Don't know if that has anything to do with it or not.

When checking, make sure that the server is managed. Most of the lower cost offering have next to no support at all without paying extra.

Surpass dedicated servers are fully managed, which to me makes them a very good deal.

When you say they can't be seen, do you mean at all, or that you see the header but there is only space where the content should be? If it's the 2nd one, try highlighting the area that appears blank. The text is probably there.

I just helped someone on another forum with the same issue. When I checked the page source, the text in her custom block was there.

For a quick fix, I enclosed everything in her custom block with <font color=black> </font> tags and the text magically appeared.

That's not the proper fix, but it made her block visible until the problem could be found and fixed properly.

Hope that helps.

content module gone?

I just tried to download the "content" module, and it's gone.

I was wondering what happened, but have since found out.

I guess my next question is does anyone have the latest release that would be willing to email it to me?

Thanks.

John
