NOTE RE MODULE INSTALLATION/UPDATING:

If you want to install/update your GeoIP countries data to use the latest Maxmind release that is included in the Netquery v4.14 package, you need to use the Install GeoIP Data Table option located under the Netquery admin panel's Main Menu - NQ Options.

Netquery 3.3 - Firefox Rendering Issue

While there has been no "official" bug report, some community members elsewhere have posted minor problems with Firefox rendering of the Netquery 3.3+ user interface.

It appears that Firefox is not handling the float:right style properly for images within fieldset legends. I guess I must have added that after my last Firefox check thinking that, since it passed W3C validation and worked in MSIE, Firefox would have no problem with it. Obviously, I was wrong about that. It's a good browser, but none of them are perfect.

Anyhow, the simple "quickfix" solution is to edit the Netquery CSS stylesheet that you are using (or all of them) to remove or comment out that float:right style found there as:

input.floatbutton, img.floatbutton
{
vertical-align: middle;
float: right
}

Just take out the float:right and not the vertical-align:middle style. Unfortunately, doing that puts those buttons at the "wrong" end of the fieldset legends in my opinion, but I guess it's a small price for compatibility. I'll try to come up with a more elegant solution for Netquery's next upgrade release, but it doesn't look promissing. Firefox doesn't even seem to honour text-align:right within fieldset legends.

Richard

Admin Equivalent of $xoops_module_header

Is there one? Is there any way (short of hacking the XOOPS cp_functions.php code) to provide the same CSS values in a module's admin interface as $xoops_module_header provides in the user interface?

The interface design of the XOOPS edition of my module (Netquery) relies heavily on the <{$xoops_module_header}> feature of XOOPS themes. The module offers a selection from several CSS stylesheet options, which works fine in the modules user interface. But I can find no similar accomodation in the XOOPS admin interface and just using static in-line styles doesn't accomplish the same purpose.

Any ideas?
Regards,
Richard

Actually, Dev.Xoops and the XOOPS Repository are two very different issues, at least from this author's perspective.

My Netquery module is included and listed on Dev.Xoops as you can see at http://dev.xoops.org/modules/xfmod/project/?mwr-netquery where I, as its author, am able to retain control over its versioning and the pointers to its mutiple download package options. Because no similar direct management control over versioning and download package links is available to the author under the XOOPS Repository, on the other hand, I've stayed away from that one.

Actually, that's not quite true. I did try it once, but asked for removal when my module's listing was altered without my knowledge and we couldn't seem to reach any compromise agreement on how such things should be done.

Richard

I suspect that your hosting service provider is running PHP in CGI mode. (Many of them consider doing that and loading PHPSuexec more secure than running PHP as an Apache module.) You may be able to verify the PHP environment from your hosting contol panel's system information or you can check directly with your service's tech support.

If that is so, then .htaccess won't work. You need to remove it to get rid of those errors. Instead, use a php.ini file in the same location and put the equivalent configuration values into it:
register_globals = Off
session.use_trans_sid = 0

Line 82?! There is no line 82 in the XOOPS 2.0.9.2 index.php file. It ends at line 46 and the whole thing (after 34 inital comment lines) is as follows
include "mainfile.php";

//check if start page is defined
if ( isset($xoopsConfig['startpage']) && $xoopsConfig['startpage'] != "" && $xoopsConfig['startpage'] != "--" ) {
    
header('Location: '.XOOPS_URL.'/modules/'.$xoopsConfig['startpage'].'/');
    exit();
} else {
    
$xoopsOption['show_cblock'] =1;
    include 
"header.php";
    include 
"footer.php";
}
?>
What does your index.php file look like?

That works. Thanks very much to both.

[EDIT] Just in case this finds its way into anyone else's bag of tricks, there's a missing close bracket in the first line of Mith's modification. It should be
if (!is_object($GLOBALS['xoopsModule']) || $GLOBALS['xoopsModule']->getVar('dirname') != "moduledirname") {
I'm happy to see that I'm not the only one who occasionally loses count of brackets and braces.
