Hi, I've just found this post after doing a Google search on "uokill.zh.od.ua" as this started to appear on my XOOPS site at www.paddysworld.co.uk .

Just wanted to let you know that I found the iframe embedded in a Custom Block I had created and also in the Footer meta tags on the XOOPS preferences. I removed them from these locations (they were 'cleverly?' disguised by having 20 blank lines above the entries) and it looks to have fixed the problem.

I am slightly concerned about how the iste was hacked and if anyone had any idea how I could troubleshoot how it occurred and what I can do to prevent re-occurrance?

Thanks for any help, and I hope this post may help you to fix your problem.

Paddy

Hi,

I'm trying to download the latest version of XFGuestbook - Version 2.40 I Believe but V 2.30 would be OK.

The author's website has been down for some time and I have searched high and low for a copy, but without any success.

Does anyone know where I could get a copy?

Thanks in advance!!

Thanks for the response but I'm gonna ask for help here...

Please let me know if you think this should be posted in another forum....

I don't think it relates to XOOPS at all and I'm not sure why I'm having the problem but would be grateful if anyone who reads this thread could post some answers to the following questions.

I have two files:

Vid 1 - http://www.paddysworld.co.uk/Files/Videos/KittyFlip.wmv

Vid 2 - http://www.paddysworld.co.uk/Files/Videos/DontLaugh.wmv

When you click on the links to the two videos do they both play OK? If the first one didn't play any idea why?

Here are my responses:

Vid 1 - NOT OK
Vid 2 - OK
Video Player - Windows Media Player 10
Browser(s) - IE6
Ideas - Not a clue!!!

Thanks in advance to everyone for their help!!

Problems with viewing Video Files

Hi,

I have been attempting to troubleshoot and fix a problem I'm having with my website.

I've been using XOOPS for a couple of years now and have not had a problem with it at all (apart from a couple of tweaks here and there).

The issue that I have I believe is not XOOPS related but I am definitely stumped for an answer.

Anyways, here's the problem:

I use the wf-downloads module for my videos section at http://www.paddysworld.co.uk.

On some computers for some of the videos the video does not play. It seems to be completely random. Here's an example:

On PC1 in my office all of the files on the videos section play in IE6, Firefox & Opera (my default browser).

On PC2 some of the clips play and some of them don't. The video clips I've compared (those that play and those that don't) are the exact same type of video clip.

e.g.:
Vid 1: http://www.paddysworld.co.uk/modules/ ... /visit.php?cid=11&lid=954 will not play in IE or Firefox but will play in Opera.

Vid 2:http://www.paddysworld.co.uk/modules/ ... /visit.php?cid=19&lid=950 plays in all browsers.

Both of these pages have direct links to the files which are :

Vid 1 - http://www.paddysworld.co.uk/Files/Videos/KittyFlip.wmv
Vid 2 - http://www.paddysworld.co.uk/Files/Videos/DontLaugh.wmv

and if I click on these direct links the same thing happens. I.E. Vid 1 opens but only downloads a few Kb of the video file and then stops playing it. Vid 2 downloads completely and plays the file.

I have to be honest and say I haven't got a clue what's happening. I've ran the same processes of a local server in the office and it works all OK.

I've also tried downloading the files that I have problems with using other modules and the result is the same.

I'm concerned that visitors to my site will not be able to download some of the videos and I do not know what is causing the issue.

Any ideas?

Does anyone else have problems playing Vid 1?

Thanks in advance, Paddy

PS I've tried re-uploading and copying the files to a diffeent folder on my server prior to downloading it but it's all the same. It doesn't work (on some PCs).

I've also tried resetting all my browser defaults back to normal.

Hi,

To eliminate the sub-categories from being displayed then you will need to modify the code as follows :

<table width="100%" border='0' cellspacing='5' cellpadding='0' align="center">
  <
tr>
  <{foreach 
from=$subcategories item=cat key=count}>
    <
td valign="top">
      <{if 
$cat.imgurl != ""}>
        <
a href="<{$mod_url}>/viewcat.php?cid=<{$cat.cid}>">
          <
img src="<{$cat.imgurl}>" width="120" border="0" alt="" />
        </
a>
      <{/if}>
    </
td>
    <
td valign="top" width="33%">
      <
a href="<{$mod_url}>/viewcat.php?cid=<{$cat.cid}>"><span style="font:bold 150%;"><{$cat.title}></span></a>&nbsp;<{$lang_total}><{$cat.photo_total_sum}>&nbsp;(<{$cat.photo_small_sum}>)
      <
br />
    </
td>
    <{if (
$count+1is div by 3}>
      </
tr><tr>
    <{/if}>
  <{/foreach}>
  </
tr>
</
table>


Let me know how you get on....

I am not entirely sure of the best way to do this but here is one way :

Keep the one style.css sheet but make new entries for the stylesclasses that you would like to use in the different module.

You can then update the templates for that particular module (System - Templates from the Admin screen) and change the class references to the new ones you entered in the style.css.

Hi,

You will need to change the template that is used for showing categories and subcategories.

This template is called 'myalbum_categories.html' and can be modified in the usual way. (System - Templates from the Admin section).

I hope this helps,

All, thanks for the responses.

The web Optimizer link was great and a big help (although the results are pretty similar for the www.xoops.org site).


Just for info:
I have managed to speed up the site by implementing a css style vertical menu which reduced the size from about 40K to 4K. I decided to take this action after reviewing the results at the web optimizer page.

Again, thanks to everyone for the feedback!

Thanks for the feedback so far.

The site is more orientated towards broadband users, as the main function is to download large attachents so it may not appeal to dial-up users as much - 20 to 30 seconds would seem OK though on dial-up.

Do you consider these download times to be slow or do you think they are acceptable? If you think they are too slow, do you have any suggestions on how to speed the site up? or do you think using a dedicated server host may be the only option?

Again, thanks for the help and any comments!
