Re: 1st xoops site launched 2 days ago
Seems my comments have proved useful?
My own site has just been altered to Mambo. Believe it or not but XOOPS is still a part of it. I am able to pull in various bits of XOOPS into the Mambo such as the xcomics etc. Obviously the postings such as this one are a bit out of date now with regard to my own site but infact XOOPS will be demonstrated on there under the 'Webmaster' section. I did infact mess about with some themes for XOOPS but time is a factor for me and I just couldn't carry on with theme designing. My site currently holds over 450 company websites and will soon hold a few hundred software ones as well with links to literally thousands of products. Along with all that I am going to develop a Webmaster script section and run a phpBB2 forum that hopefully I can modify with the Hirachy Category coding. Added to the forum will be a shoutbox so people can talk to each other as well. I have many many plans and a great deal of work to carry out
. But I enjoy doing it. I even have a home server running in the background and allow DAOC gamers to have their films hosted.
Will pay a visit to your site and see how things are going.
Just paid a visit to your site and can see you have been busy. Looks like it is coming on fine. Few things I would do differently but not much. I always try to avoid the site having to reload fully on every link so I use a lot of iframes. The pages load very fast then and there are no white flashes. No need to get involved in that though.
You are having trouble with Flash games? Why not go the full hog and install the flash games module from here? Also the video one is good as well. Infact there is a way to dispense with the actual modules and install the games and videos directly through iframes such as on my site. Again though you don't have to do this so it should be easier for you.
For anyone interested in how to use modules from one portal show in another then I will post details soon. Isn't that hard infact.
There is one module available for Mambo that I am going to look closely at. Why I am mentioning it is because it allows you to create a 'webring'. You can effectively offer webpages to your friends and website visitors and control them. Sounds like something that would be of great benefit to your site. When I have learned more I will repost.
Keep up the good work
