Parent/Child Topic Managment in News Module - Help Needed

Hi! I'm having a bit of trouble with the News module and was wondering if anyone would be able to help me solve it.

Currently in my installation of the News module, I have two main Parent topics with many more Child topics, organized within the Parent topics. See below:

NEWS MODULE
-Articles
--Web Notez
--Hot Topics
--Konichiwa!
...etc...
-News
--Site News
--Delegation News
--Program News
...etc...

Here's my problem. I discovered today that when I visit the story listing for a Parent topic, like... say... "Articles", it doesn't list any stories within the Child topics, like... Konichiwa!. It was my impression that the Parent topics included stories in the Child topics within its listings.

I was wondering if there was a way to list stories included under Child topics when visiting the story listing for the Parent topics. Is there a way to do this? If not, do you know of a News module compatible with XOOPS 2.2.4 that can do this? Or, should I try having duplicate copies of the News module on my site?

Thank you in advance for your consideration and assistance in this matter!

P.S.: Ohhh... here's some site specs:
Xoops 2.2.4
PHP 5
MySQL 4
News Module 1.4
URL: www.mvyg.com
If you need further information to troubleshoot this problem, short of any info that would compromise security, please feel free to ask me!

Re: User password recovery

The first email is sent to the user's email address to verify that it was in fact the user that requested the password change. If the password were changed immedietly, without asking first, some one wishing to be an annoyance could go around and force password changes randomly.

Re: Can not see post

Hi WebSiteGuru! I understand that you have CBB 1.16 installed on your site and the viewtopic page doesn't work.

When it comes to the CBB module, 1.16 is not the latest version. The latest version of the module is CBB 3.05 and, according the the project managers, is compatible with all branches of Xoops.

Visit their project page at:
http://dev.xoops.org/modules/xfmod/project/?newbb
There, you can find the latest version, news on the module, and updates when they're released.

Good luck with your site!

Re: Private Messages not working with some themes

Hmmm... so, from what I'm getting, you click the "Send" button in other themes rather than "Default" and nothing comes up. In Firefox, nothing happens, but in IE, you get those errors (I'm assuming on the viewpmsg.php page?).

There might be theme-specific javascript of some sort that is interfereing with the code that would launch the pmlite.php page. Javascript is pretty touchy; just one little syntax error will throw off the whole script! Unfortunatly, I can't test this for you to see if this is the case because my XOOPS site is live right now.

Other than the possibility of a Javascript error, I'm honestly not sure how to diagnose this problem. I personally haven't had a problem like this before. Check the template for the page and your theme for Javascript errors. You could also try rebuilding the template file and/or contacting the creator of the theme you're using for troubleshooting the theme.

Let me know how checking the template files and javascript goes. I'll see if I can get my hands on the theme files and sort through them.

Well, good luck with your site!

EDIT: So, I looked at the dream_on file to see what might be going on and I found that the theme's theme.html file is missing <{$xoops_module_header}> in the header. You could try adding that into theme.html in the header section and see if that changes anything.

Re: How to set defult theme?

Hi ton_cut345! Welcome to Xoops! I undertstand that you'd like to set a theme you downloaded to the default one so that all that view your site use your specific theme.

To do this, you'll need to log in to your site as an administrator. Once you're logged in, visit the administration section of your website either by clicking the link in the User Menu or visiting www.***YOURSITE***.com/admin.php.

Once you're there, go to the General System Preferences (I believe this is the correct page-I may be wrong and it might be a different preferences page). Once there, find "Default Theme" and select the theme you'd like users to use by default.

If you'd like to ensure that your theme is the only theme used on the site, find "Selectable Themes" and make sure that only your theme is selected on that menu.

Once again, welcome to Xoops! Good luck with your site!

Re: Private Messages not working with some themes

Hi xxDUCKxx! Welcome to Xoops. From your post, I understand you're having a problem with Private Messages working with certain themes.

If the problem is that there is no link to the private message section, you can add a link in a block that only registered users can view, or make the User Menu visable to registered users. You can manage blocks from the administration section of the website (you have to be logged in to an administrator account to view this section) at www.***YOURSITE***.com/admin.php. The URL for the Private Message system on the 2.0.x branch is www.***YOURSITE***.com/viewpmsg.php.

If this doesn't solve your problem or I haven't understood your problem correctly, please feel free to post back. It would greatly help me and other XOOPS users troubleshoot your problem if you could include more specifics regarding what is the problem you are experiencing.

Once again, welcome to Xoops! Good luck with your site!

Re: Changing popup menu place in control panel

No worries... I'm around to help. Unfortunatly, I can only give you advice based on my experience with XOOPS and my understanding of the CMS. The great news is that this community is filled with a variety of XOOPS users, so someone might have better knowledge than me regarding this problem you're experiencing with the CMS.

What have you tried so far to troubleshoot the situation? Were you unable to find a record for the div in the CSS file?

The other thing I can think of is that the CSS might have been hard-coded into the PHP page or the template. I'm not sure whether this is the case or not. If it is the case, then there should be style info within the page source itself when you pull the source up on your browser.

Once again, please note that I'm assuming that you're using a standard version of Xoops. If you're using a localized version, you might get better help on your local support site. Click "Local Support" on the Community menu and find your local support team on the list.

Re: How to customize user registration?

From what I'm getting in your post, you'd like to customize the user registration form to add or remove certain fields from the form.

If you're running a 2.0.x version, I've heard the Membership module works great. It's located at https://xoops.org/modules/repository/s ... file.php?cid=101&lid=1488.

Try this out and see if it works for ya. Good luck with your site!

Re: Changing popup menu place in control panel

Hello! From your post, I understand that you're using XOOPS in a lanugage that reads right-to-left and the administration panel is acting weird, and that the popup administration bars are showing up on the left side of the screen and not the right.

I'm using a different version of XOOPS (2.2.x), so I'm not sure exactly what id that div has, but try checking the code and find out if that popup menu has an "id" attribute. If so, search through the CSS file for that id. If there is an attribute "left", change it to "right", or if the attribute "right" already exists, place the value of "left" into "right".

Note that I'm assuming that you're using a standard version of Xoops. If you're using a localized version, you might get better help on your local support site. Click "Local Support" on the Community menu and find your local support team on the list.

Good luck with your site!

Re: Hackside.com Free hosting and Email

Hi erzon! It's great to see a new XOOPS site!

First off, the theme looks pretty nice. The top green linkbar seems a little off-balance, but that's probably because some of the words are longer than others. It also looks like you've got a lot of modules deployed and are putting them to good use! Good good good...

However, it's my personal opinion that the information flow could use a little help. First off, I hit your homepage on a 1280*1024 screen and it's about 7-10 screens tall. Unless I'm looking for something specific, I'm gonna get off that page ASAP. Next off, you've got loads of animations. Your topbar is animated. You've got links to the right and in the center that's animated. Things all over the page are scrolling, ticking, moving, spinning, etc. It all so busy that it all becomes a blur and none of it really pulls my focus.

Finally, overall, when I look at your homepage, I have no clue what you're site's about. Sure, it says in your title that you offer "Free Email and Web Hosting", but how? Your announcement talks about registering so "we can hear your thoughts." Huh? Is signing up how I get the hosting? With all these other services, is the main focus of the site to offer me free hosting and email or these gadget and community features? Who am I signing up with, anyway?

I like how you're putting XOOPS to good use. It seems your site's got a lot of features to it. Try streamlining that content, though. Maybe a homepage with concise information would help, like the latest top stories and a bulleted list of what you offer. Also, you could add an "About Us" section for new visitors.

I wish you the best of luck with your site!
