language selection is useless if the language of the content does not change in my opinion. I mean, what good does it really do if the menu and title change but you cant read the news?

osCommerce has an excellent solution to handle multiple languages. The content changes and the menus etc. This is accomplished by having additional language tables in the database. Admin can then choose which languases he wants to display on the site, and for each new article input, the admin is given input fields for each of the multiple languages he has selected to display on the site.

This would probably require some pretty heavy hacking to make it work in Xoops, but a worthwhile venture if anyone has the time and knowhow to tackle it. I dont

Catzwolf, you are one crazy coding lad, you deserve(and I highly recommend) a break. Go enjoy life a bit while the weather is nice

Havent tried the new version yet but i am sure its great, you sure have quite a thread going here! I predict that your contributions to XOOPS will go a long way towards keeping this community from dying out...Xoops needs more modules and yours is top. congrats and see you m8.

Re: Xoops 2 module wish list

i want a super 'samrt' module, that i can type what I want in this forum and the code will be generated on the fly and emailed to me automagically

keep up the good work devs!

PS. --> in the image admin in xoops2, would be nice if there was an option (checkbox/submit?) next to each upload image to be able to delete them...

i am having a similar issue with a new theme i am working on.

Also, on this site, the center block sometimes shows white BG and sometimes colored.

oh yeah, here is the site in question:

http://www.glycerinesport.ch/index.php

I wonder is it cookie related? nah...couldn't be, could it?reason I say is becuase at home, my IE cookie 'red eye' was showing that it blocked cookies form all sorts of graphic files from this site that are in my theme! weard!

hi Catz....

I am sticking with the version of WF section that I have running already on the one site that I have a lot content in...no sense stopping a running horse ;)

I think you should finish the final version for the 1.3x series XOOPS as you planned, like someone else said it may be a while until people actually upgrade and use XOOPS 2 (when it is officialy released) on production sites.

At any rate, thanks for your continued work on this excellent module!

You da man!

Cheers,
swisslyons

I use Nortons Internet Security and firewall, and since this site has started using Xoops2, I no longer have to disable my firewall to login. I always have to disable it on my pre-Xoops2 sites though.

(edited)

Ok, i can login to site, but I cant post ;(

I had to turn it off to post this...

how to make a module

The way i usually do this is to make my own module for each page I want to display in the middle of Xoops. To make your own custom module, you only need to create 2 files: index.php and xoops_version.php in a new folder. Lets call this folder 'myModule' for example.

Then, in the index.php,

should copy/paste this code:
*****************************

<?php

include("../../mainfile.php");
include("../../header.php");
include("header.php");
OpenTable();

?>

your HTML content goes here, between these php tags ;) This also works for Flash content, just copy/paste from your flash.htnl file and place it here

<?
CloseTable();
include ("../../footer.php");
?>

**********************************
Here is a second possibility for creating your index.php, using an include(); instead of hardcoding the HTML in the php page. This helps make the code a bit more modular and easier to handle.
Create your html in Dreamweaver or whatever editor, then upload all files to this same module directory (myModule) for example)...and use this code to include it:

**********************************

<?php

include("../../mainfile.php");
include("../../header.php");
include("header.php");
OpenTable();

include("nameOfYourPage.html");


CloseTable();
include ("../../footer.php");
?>

**********************************

OK, then in xoops_version.php

copy/paste this code:
**********************************

<?php
$modversion['name'] = "title that you want to display in main menu";
$modversion['version'] = "alpha testing only";
$modversion['description'] = "description here";
$modversion['credits'] = "The XOOPS Project <BR /> Thanks to blah blah blah....";
$modversion['author'] = "John Lyons (http://www.flashbuilder.ch/)";
$modversion['help'] = "";
$modversion['license'] = "GPL see LICENSE";
$modversion['official'] = 0;
$modversion['image'] = "logo.gif";
$modversion['dirname'] = "myModule";

// Menu
$modversion['hasMain'] = 1;



?>

Then upload this new folder to your modules directory. Log into your site as admin, go to Modules, and add this module. Don't forget to give group rights to access this module.

That should do it, I hope its all ok becuase its late here and I am tired.

P.S. --> if you are trying to include content that is on another URL and you cant copy/paste the code, try using the
framebrowser script
