Hi,

I am making a site in which i need to use xf-sections. I tried wf-sections 1.1 but the category image would not appear or save.

So ... i installed xf-sections as it promised a fix to this bug.

Now i can select the image and it apears in the section management but after save and returning to section management it resets to 'blank.gif' again.

If i set the category image to 'yes' for appear, i get this warning below on my page.

I have checked my file paths and permissions and they are all correct but i keep getting the following message...

"ERROR: Please check path/file for image"

anyone know how to fix this?
thanks

xoops poll - can it auto sort?

Hi,

one of my site users has asked me if the polls can automatically appear sorted according to numbers of votes - like a top 10. I can't find any option that would sort and update the results before display. Perhaps the template for the XOOPS polls block needs changing? Not sure... wouldn't know what code to put in to effect an automatic sort.....

any suggestions?
many thanks

ok,

i want to know how many users i have because i'm trying to build a site and gather more traffic - i also want my users to be able to know who is or isn't online. My server admin tells me that XOOPS online has a cache that if people don't log out, it will continue to show them as online. I understand that this a not a flaw or bug so much as a programming decision to cut the page load delay but I have spent 1 year installing and uninstalling stat programmes because i thought my stats were bad. Thats my own fault. How could i access the server stats for traffic to compare with phpstats that i'm using at the moment?.
My site is http://www.djtaiwan.org.
thanks for taking this topic

Is this online handler modifiable? If so, how can i change it so it doesn't cache?

many thanks for your super lightnight quick reply. XOOPS rules.

Ps: I'd like a decent SMS module but not sure whether i have to pay a local telecommunications carrier for this service? I reside in taiwan so the sms module in the modules depository doesn't work (USA only?)

Visitor count in 'Who's Online' block is incorrect

Hi,

I have a strange phenomena on my site. (http://www.djtaiwan.org/index.php)

The 'Who's online block is counting visitors twice.

Example: I access the site without logging in and the block displays me as a guest. Say i go to the calendar page then decide to login. After i login, there are now two users counted as 'Online'. When i check the details, the IP addresses are the same. It has counted me twice.

EG My site will show 6 people online but they are actually only 3 people, counted twice as Guest and Member.

In addition, I use PHP Stats to count my visitors and this seems to be very selective in its count. I have been told it is counting me even when i set my ip to 'exclude' because my home line IP number is floating not fixed.

Is there another way to accurately check the visitors count - a log file i can check?

How can i fix the who's online block to accurately show the right number of people (eg that when a person logs in, it will no longer count them as a guest)? The block cache for 'Who's Online' is set to 'None'.

Pulling my hair out over this one - its messed up my stats for over a year now.

anyone know whats going wrong? - its a new site (2.10.0).

thanks

H,

I'm using the fiapplegreen theme but it is missing its corresponding MAC theme style sheet. For example the imag03 theme has a style.css and a style MAC.css file. Fiapplegreen only comes with the style.css file.

Does anyone know where i can get a copy of theMAC style sheet for this theme?

many thans

I've tried to use the code found on happy linux:
http://linux2.ohwada.net/modules/xfsection/article.php?articleid=15

however i have trouble interpreting the following code instruction....

(2) Center Block was assigned up and down.
xoops_ccblocks_up and xoops_ccblocks_down are asigned for theme templates.
conventional xoops_ccblocks is asigned too.
If weight value is ten or less, block is assigned to xoops_ccblocks_up.
If it is more than ten, block is assigned to xoops_ccblocks_down.

[code]
if ( $block_arr[$i]->getVar('weight') < 10)
{
$xoopsTpl->append('xoops_ccblocks_up', array('title' => $block_arr[$i]->getVar('title'), 'content' => $bcontent));
}
else
{
$xoopsTpl->append('xoops_ccblocks_down', array('title' => $block_arr[$i]->getVar('title'), 'content' => $bcontent));
}
[code]

not sure what this code is, where it goes or what file to ammend..... any help would be really appreciated
many thanks

Hi,

I have a similar design layout question. I want my center column to have three sections.

1. At the top, I have a center center block that spans the entire width of the center column.

2. Under this i have placed useful blocks in 2 center columns (center left and center right). All good so far, no problems.

3. My issue comes when i try to add another block under No.2 above e.g have another center block that again spans the whole width of the center column.

I tried reproducing the table and smarty code in theme.html using Frontpage to add another cell but this cell repeats all blocks listed in the center center column and the layout is altered.

In summary: I need:
1 center column with 1 block at the top
2 center columns with 2 blocks in each column.
1 center column with 1 block at the bottom.

...so the center column is divided into:
1 column at top
2 columns in the middle
1 column again at the bottom.

please check my site homepage http://www.grandz.net/dragonfly/ to see what i mean. 1 & 2 above is ok. When i try to add No.3 (another center block at the bottom spanning the entire width of the center column), it doesn't work.

any help gratefully appreciated...

Re: How can I bug check my system to see why the counter doesn't work?

Let me clarify... my system:
Operating System Linux grandz.net 2.4.20-8 #1 Thu Mar 13 17:54:28 EST 2003 i686
Webserver Apache/1.3.28 (Unix) PHP/4.3.3
Php version 4.3.3
MySQL version 3.23.54


I remember executing an sql command in the SqlMyAdmin database that related to group permissions... perhaps thats why the site has 2 abnormal functions:

1. counters do not tabulate properly
2. Group permissions automatically add registered user permission to view a block that only the webmaster should be able to see.... in other words... when i change a block (in webmaster view), these changes are automatically applied to the settings for the Registered Users & blocks in that view mode AND to the Group permissions for that block.

perhaps somewhere, the site became confused between permissions and recognition of different users. The sql debug messages above were from the home page on my site under my login.

hope someone out there can see the potential problem and advise of a course of action.

my site is http://www.grandz.net/dragonfly/

many thanks xoops

Thanks,

I did an sql debug and this came up:

SELECT * FROM dragonfly__config WHERE (conf_modid = 0 AND conf_catid = 1) ORDER BY conf_order ASC
SELECT sess_data FROM dragonfly__session WHERE sess_id = '00bff059f5969143af9e14ea765cb547'
SELECT * FROM dragonfly__users WHERE uid=1
SELECT * FROM dragonfly__modules WHERE dirname = 'system'
SELECT * FROM dragonfly__modules WHERE dirname = 'system'
SELECT * FROM dragonfly__configcategory
SELECT * FROM dragonfly__group_permission WHERE (gperm_name = 'module_admin' AND gperm_modid = 1 AND (gperm_groupid = 1 OR gperm_groupid = 6 OR gperm_groupid = 7 OR gperm_groupid = 9 OR gperm_groupid = 10 OR gperm_groupid = 11 OR gperm_groupid = 12 OR gperm_groupid = 14))

Total: 7 queries

Blocks
Total: 0 blocks

Execution Time
XOOPS took 0.0577380657196 seconds to load.

I suspect the permissions and user ID to be the cause of the problem ... anyone atound that can read the above and see anomalies?

many thanks
Ben
