Re: Is XOOPS used for business applications?

That is absolutely false.

XOOPS is GPL software. The GPL does not stipulate any pricing for software - it stipulates rights of use for the software. Specifically, it stipulates that the person receiving the software must also be given source code (though it includes the note that the vendor can charge reasonable media costs to do so) and they are free to redistribute it as they see fit (as long as they, too, abide by the license).

This is a fine line, but one worth drawing. I worked for a company that sold a modified gcc (GPL'd compiler). I think we sold 4 copies to clients that really wanted them. Of course they could have given it away after that (with source!), but that's not how it worked out.

Are you sure you're doing it correctly? Are you doing this from the Groups adminstration page, or the Blocks administration page?


No, I'm not sure.

I'm doing this from the Blocks Administration page.

Looks like it should do exactly what I want.

Oh, hey, the groups page does the same kinda thing. I'll try that.

Sure is confusing, though.

That did the trick. Thanks. The UI for the Blocks page is VERY misleading.

Re: poll force view

I tried installing your hack 'in place', but it didn't work. Instead, the poll listed with textboxes that had number in them corresponding to the poll choice.

I certainly would like to see this functionality rolled into the core. If you can't vote again, why not show the results!?!

Re: No access for anonymous users

Yeah, that's a lame solution that I considered...

Problem is that I want to be able to register new users.

Re: No access for anonymous users

That's what I figure - but like I said, when I turn things off for anon users, it turns them off for other users, too.

ie. Disable all blocks for anon users except login. Click submit (or whatever the button is). It refreshes and shows regular users with everything turned off. Click webmaster and go, and everything is turned off there, too.

The same thing happens in reverse, too (set something for admin and it affects regular and anon).

How can I debug this? I could (I suppose) set up a virgin install for you to witness this behavior on - but I would think any virgin install would be the same.

No access for anonymous users

I would like to give no access to anonymous users. All I want them to be able to do is log in.

In theory, this should be easy (use the blocks admin menu to only allow access to the login block for anon users). In practice the blocks menu seems to bleed access rights from one group (anon) to other groups (registered and webmaster). This means that when I disable everything for anon users, ALL users get disabled.

This seems like a bug, but I'm not sure - maybe I just don't understand the feature...

Any advice appreciated.
