Re: Blocking an IP range due to comment spam?

I prefer using Apache to terminate these scum before they even reach my website.

For example, in the .htaccess file in the root of my website, I have this:

<Limit GET>
order allow,deny
allow from all
deny from 195.93.34.11
deny from 200.146.106.74
deny from 80.69.48
.
deny from 217.107.222.16
deny from 85.255.113
.
</
Limit>

ErrorDocument 403 http://google.com/


When you leave the last part of the IP address off, it acts as a wildcard. So for example, anyone coming from 85.255.113.1 to 85.255.113.255 would be redirected to the Error 403 page I selected. I do this, and I never hear from the spammer again.

Re: PLEASE HEPL ME OUT WITH MY SITE

From the thread you posted it says:
"xoops-2.2.4-to-2.2.4-Fixes.v3.zip
DON'T USE THIS IN YOUR WEBSITE

JUST FOR TEST!! THIS IS NOT OFFICIAL"

I would try reuploading the original 2.2.4 files overtop the v3 fixes you uploaded and see if that fixes your speed issues.

Re: check my site out

Hello,

I don't see anything notable at either of your sites. While the design may be ok, the fact that both are incredibly cluttered with pointless ads insures that I won't ever be back.

You should really cut back on the advertisements. Ad placement and selection takes a lot of time, and more is not better.

Oh yeah, and you might want to actually have content up for people who unsuspectingly click on your links. As it stands, your site is the web equivalent of an incredibly annoying billboard.

Re: need help with Anonymous Users

I think what you'll need to do is manually create a menu that only anonymous users can see with links to the modules you want them to get to, but can't access without logging in.

When they use the link, they'll be redirected to the page saying they don't have permission to view the page, and then they'll be redirected again to the login/register page.

Does that help?

What a crap site layout. Why do people build sites that are WIDTH=800 pixels wide. If you do, have a look at how terrible it looks on a screen that is 1280 pixels or more wide. For goodness sake use WIDTH=100%


Actually it's better to go with WIDTH=99.9% or 99%, otherwise people using Firefox end up with an ugly horizontal scrollbar no matter how large they make the width of their browser.

Just this morning I added some gradients to the sides. Not sure on my final take, but it took me only five minutes to do.

Of course, OldFriend is also comparing a community site to someone's personal website that they do in their free time. But still, I've done wonders with the original XOOPS theme... IMO anyways.

Re: can xoops compete with joomla?

If I put an annoying, rotating flash banner at the top; will it be more modern? Perhaps white text on light gray buttons would make it more modern. Those are very readable on an LCD screen by the way.

Or maybe I could resize my text so its small enough to be a nuisance to read on a high-resolution monitor. What is "modern"? I'm not a graphic designer, I'm a writer and photographer.

Like I said though, my website is evolving. When I find the time, I'll "modernize" it with all those pretty graphics from Joomla.

Re: can xoops compete with joomla?

I have Joomla and Mambo on a development site, and I was impressed with the quality of their graphics and color choices... but I didn't like how everything was laid out.

Ultimately, when I have the time... I'm going to "borrow" some of their ideas and assimilate them into the theme I use for my website (which uses XOOPS of course). But like I said, other than their clean graphics Joomla and Mambo don't do it for me. I've been using XOOPS for a couple years now and I've never had complaints about the length of the URLs or the design.

So, if you're wondering how my site looks right now... visit http://prezkennedy.org

Not too bad eh?

Re: restricting access

Could you be a little more specific about the type of page? You can prevent people from seeing an entire module according to group and if the module supports it (like WF-Section or the latest version of the News module) you can set permissions for each document/category you post.

In other words, what are you using to create these single pages?

Re: Xoop-Stats counter has stopped counting!

include_once XOOPS_ROOT_PATH.'/modules/statistics/include/hitcounter.php';
needs to be added to header.php every time you upgrade XOOPS. I've forgotten it myself several times. As I recall, there's a new version of this module out too, and it works fine for me with XOOPS 2.2.3.
