Re: Upgrade 2.0.9.3 to 2.1.10

I installed the upgrade again and everything appeared correctly.

The problem was that you would add a module and it would not showup in the main menu, it would install correcty but the display was not visable.

Incomplete upgrade might have been the problem, not sure.

Thanks

Re: Upgrade 2.0.9.3 to 2.1.10

Yes sorry I mean 2.0.10, I just noticed that the upgrade went fine however, adding a dfferent module to the system does not allow it to display correctly under main menu.

Interesting!!

Upgrade 2.0.9.3 to 2.1.10

Just wondering if anyone has noticed after upgrading from 2.0.9.3 to 2.1.10 that they may not be able to add another module correctly. My test site seems to have this problem.

Thanks

Canadian Xoops Developers/Programmers

Just wondering if there are any Canadian developers / programmers out there with XOOPS experience. I know there are designers but I have never seen a or heard of a developer / programmer.


Thanks

Modules or possible modules

Does anyone now if there are any turn based go, chinese chess or checkers programs out there that could be converted to XOOPS modules. Also I see someone is working on a rpg engine for exoops will this project allow us to create for example a chess related role playing game.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Mambo winning on PR-field now

In my opinion Mambo is winning in the PR-field because they finally understand that development for the sake of development is a never ending cycle. To be fair, I believe they came to this understanding faster then most because of the commercial side of their business (CMS). When your customers tell you that they don’t care about your new features if it doesn’t benefit them, you sort of sit up and take notice.

I have worked with Mambo and XOOPS and I used the support forums for both and I find that both systems a basically equal in features (some better some worse..blah blah blah) however, Mambo does a better job with the finer points for the new users. Example, an iframe, simple to do if you know what your doing can be a nightmare if your new user. How does XOOPS handle this issue, well they tell you to download a module (that may or may not work) or someone gives you a piece of code to insert somewhere. Now how does Mambo handle this issue, well as part of their system they use something called a wrapper, this will do the same thing however, from a new user’s point of view the instructions are straight forward (idiot proof). This is only one example.

The bottom line (my opinion only) is Mambo has started to realize that sometimes the finer points are more important than new versions; they provide them with better customer satisfaction. Both systems have their pluses and minuses but if you review the support forums you usually never see in the Mambo forums, I have a blank screen after installing something or all my modules are gone or I can’t login to my system…pretty scary stuff for a new user and I bet one of the reason we lose a lot of new comers. Don’t get me wrong, Mambo has their problems as well but as I said I think they do a better job for the new user and isn’t that what we are trying to accomplish.

Another issue I find regarding a CMS, let’s face it people use a CMS because it allows them to do something, using a CMS for the sake of a CMS is not the primary purpose for most people. If you check the support forums again on this issue you will find people switch to another system because either the CMS won’t do what they want it to do or some other CMS does a better job at performing the task they wish to provide, so un-finished projects or incomplete projects appear to be the number one reason for users switching to another system.


Thanks

Re: Firefox 1.02 and images

I'm experiencing some problems with viewing images in firefox 1.02 here on the xoops.org forums, namely that the images are garbled up.

When I load a thread, some of the images (post reply, new topic etc.) are correct, but some are not. For instance I saw Herko's avatar used for indicating the XOOPS Core Team rank. After a CTRL + R, it is another image there - or it is correct, but other images are wrong. IE and Mozilla 1.7.6 show correct images

Anybody else experience similar things with FF 1.02? Here or elsewhere?


I only use Firefox for testing now, not only are there problems with graphics but complete webpage seem to be not visable to Firefox. Also I have noticed Firefox does not display scrolling text well anymore.

Re: rate-a-professor module

I think there is a module like that (can't remember the name) but if I remember the module was not complete.
