Disabling 'Rate This File'

Is there a way of disabling the 'Rate This File' feature of 'mydownloads'? Or even possibly remove it? I couldn't find any mention of it anywhere in the 'mydownloads' preferences. I find the file rating feature a bit of nuisance because some visitors give ratings without downloading the file first. My downloads section is accessible by all visitors, but is there a way of restricting rating only to registered users, the same way commenting can be restricted?
Otherwise, is there a way of clearing the ratings for each file?

Any pointers would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Is it possible to have two seperate layouts, one for the index page and another for all other pages?

Yes, I'm aware that XOOPS usually installs in the root directory but I have several different cms installed which I use for testing purpose. I am only experiencing this problem with my XOOPS directory.

No, it's on a remote server. This is what I have in the mainfile.php:
// XOOPS Physical Path
    // Physical path to your main XOOPS directory WITHOUT trailing slash
    // Example: define('XOOPS_ROOT_PATH', '/home/****/public_html/xoops');
    
define('XOOPS_ROOT_PATH''/home/****/public_html/xoops');

    
// XOOPS Virtual Path (URL)
    // Virtual path to your main XOOPS directory WITHOUT trailing slash
    // Example: define('XOOPS_URL', 'http://www.mysite.com/xoops');
    
define('XOOPS_URL''http://www.mysite.com/xoops');

404 Not Found URL Error

I get the following 404 Not Found error when I try to access my site without including the forward slash to the path folder (http://www.mysite.com/xoops or http://mysite.come/xoops):

The requested URL /xoops was not found on this server
Additionallya 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


But when I include the forward slash (mysite.com/xoops/) I get directed to the correct page. This seems to only happen with my XOOPS directory, all other directories add the forward slash automatically when I try to access them: mysite.com/directory -> mysite.com/directory/ . Is this something that needs to be adjusted in the config file? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Cheers

Thanks m0nty, I got the Welcome block working and now I'm going to take a look at the module you suggested. Cheers.

Hello Draven, I'm hoping you can offer some pointers on how to make a block similar to the News block you have on gaining-mass.com. I like how you have different topic sections (i.e General News, GM News, Legal News...) within the News block, each showing the latest news within those sections. I want to make something similar with only 4 sections, but I'm not sure what it requires. Any assistance would be appreciated. Cheers.

Xoops Frontpage Blocks

I want to create a frontpage very similar to Xoops.org, where there's a Welcome Message block at the top with some simple content and a Latest News block containing some intro text to a story and right beneath it is divided into 4 topics sections (e.g. XOOPS, Modules, Themes, YAXS) which each showing the latest news for those topics.
Any suggestions on how to implement this would be appreciated.

If you were following the previous posts you would understand why. Yes, what you're suggesting works (if I were using the same images(s) for all block titles) but not in this case where each block title has its own associated image files. I think the only person who's on track is Draven.

It will produce (for every Block Title) a URL like this:

http://www.mysite.com/xoops/themes/mytheme/Block_Title_image#.gif

In my example, I used the Block Title "Big Story". I'm using three images for that block. So for each it will produce

http://www.mysite.com/xoops/themes/mytheme/Big_Story_image1.gif
http://www.mysite.com/xoops/themes/mytheme/Big_Story_image2.gif
http://www.mysite.com/xoops/themes/mytheme/Big_Story_image3.gif

so, <{$xoops_imageurl}><{$block.title|replace:" ":"_"}>_image3.gif produces http://www.mysite.com/xoops/themes/mytheme/Big_Story_image3.gif
