Not sure if this helps, but there's a flash uploader script here.

I mentioned in my first post in this thread that I didn't know the reasons behind Katim's decision...and I apologized in advance if my comments didn't jive with Katim's reasons. I obviously misinterpreted Katim's post, and for that I very sorry.

I do sincerely wish you all the best Katim.

I'm all for constructive criticism and open, respectful discussions regarding why someone would use one system over another...I just get tired of the negative and non-constructive comments that have appeared in these forums.

Well good luck with that...

/insert personal gripe here
You know it really bugs me when people feel the need to disrespect XOOPS and the XOOPS community with statements like this. If you have issues that can't be resolved and you no longer care to use XOOPS anymore, fine...but why do people feel the need to make public statements like this to try and bring down the rest of the XOOPS community?
/end personal gripe

I obviously don't know the whole story behind this particular incident, so please accept my sincere apologies if my comments are totally off base in this instance. It just seems like I have been reading a number of statements like this over the past few months, and it is really getting old and unwelcome.

Hi slyss,

I have intentions of giving this a try because I think it would be very useful, but I just haven't had the time lately.

Another Flash based chat system in simply called FlashChat and can be found here.

I have installed this with integration to a XOOPS site to allow for single logon, but my installation opens a new window. I haven't tried embedding this into my website yet, but I believe it is supposed to be possible.

I have also used ShoutBox and AChat and found both of them to work fairly well, and they integrate nicely into the XOOPS site.

Would any of those Cube themes work with Xoops, or could they be adapted to work with XOOPS without too much difficulty?

Very nice looking theme. I hope you decide to make the effort to get approval from Stardock, as I'm sure you would make many people happy by releasing this to the community.

I run multiple individual web sites (with separate XOOPS installs) on my server. I think the easy way would be to create a static HTML page at your base URL that contains links to town A and town B. Then just create 2 folders under the root for each town...ie. yourURL/town A and yourURL/town B. You could then do separate installs of XOOPS into each folder. Both sites would be completely separate, but each one accessible from your URL.

That is a pretty simplistic way of accomplishing what you asked. Another alternative would be to do a single install of XOOPS at your URL, and then have any common content between sites available off the root, and then use duplicatable modules such as MyAlbumP to have individual content for each town.

Well, that pretty much rules me out.

On a scale of 1 to 10, i would say my skill isn't too bad at about a 2 or 3...but for creativity, I would give myself about a -5 in that area.

James, your 30 themes in 30 Days initiative was very admirable, but I think we all understand how "stuff" just happens and forces us to change our plans. Considering your many contributions to the XOOPS community thus far, I think we can cut you some slack.

I really like the idea of a collaborative effort to establish a solid template from which many of us could learn more about how to create our own custom themes. I also agree with Steve's comment about teaching others to fish.

I am not afraid of diving into someone else's code to try and learn from it and figure out ways to personalize it to better suit my exact requirements. However, the problem I have most of the time is that I simply don't know enough about what I'm doing yet to really understand exactly what possibilities exist.

James, you said that you are not the best at writing documentation...well with a collaborative effort, maybe someone else could complement your work by providing some documentation to go along with the template theme. Having a solid template theme would be a great step, but I fear the task of trying to modify and personalize that theme may still be too intimidating for many people without some basic documentation or guidelines to show what possibilities exist and how to achieve them. Even just some basic examples to help the creatively challenged people like me to get motivated to learn and to try new things.

I wish I could offer my assistance to such a collaborative effort, but I still have far too much to learn before I feel that I would be able to provide any meaningful contribution to the XOOPS community. I plan to continue learning, however, and I hope that I will eventually be able to give something back to the community.

To all the devs, moderators, contributors, etc...I am very appreciative for all you have given.

Thank You.
