Smartsection mod cloning? Is possible?

Has anyone had any luck cloning the smartsection module? Natcherly it has nearly every thing I need, cept I need duplicate functionality for the "spotlight an article" function, to be able to spotlight an item in each category instead of just one for the whole module.

So far I have cloned twice and gotten a XOOPS error ... "Xoops Handler doesn't exist" and etc. Plus a bunch of "can't redeclare function so & so ..." errors. It looks almost impossible to clone this one. That is, with completely seperate categories and data and etc.

That would have been easier than re-coding the spotlight function into every category ... or so I thought

Anyone clone this puppy yet and want to share the secrets? Appreciate any hints. Thanks!

Thank you James. I'll give it a try. I will have to experiment sisnce I'm confussed about where the files need to reside, now that I've used auth.

I think I'll try your method and leave them in their installed directory. Also there's the issue of the name index.php being unusable, and trying to put the code in an html file between tags with auth.

What I really need to do is make a module and get the functionality that way. It's a hosting billing application with some nice features like paypal payment and auto account creation on the server after confirmed payment, plus billing/receiving/ordering support.

Ah well, I mentioned that in case anyone who reads this can offer an alternative application or anything. Thanks again James I'll hook it up tonite, wait and see!

I used auth to wrap an html page, and it worked great. I then tried to wrap a php site, and it went south on me. The site I was wrapping is a bug-bear of linear programming, repeated functions, not modularized very well, and excessive code that could have been done in half as many lines of code ...

but it has the functionality I need. Couldn't wrap it tho ... Anyone have any luck wrapping php sites index.php) with auth or any other similar script? I'd appreciate any tips to save me from re-writing the whole site ... ( not )

I am looking for the same information, only I want to wrap an entire site ... I think I saw a FAQ named "Can I include my pages in XOOPS ..." (close to that) and there was a good explanation there that I think will work. Let me know if you find out anything better? Thanks

>>You need provie your preferences before people could make >>their advice.

Yes, of course you're correct. Perhaps it's a bit early to tell which will be going in the direction we need. Looks like the website will be up by tonite or tomorrow, so then we can look at them ourselves and get an idea.

For a similar website you could look at www.polilogue.com The categories and topics are quite complex, and a good organization is necessary.

Thanks!

We're setting up a domain and a new site using the latest rc, which will be a site with published articles, user participation invited, and etc. The site's not installed yet.

I'm downloading content related modules and looking for info on which one(s) can be used to enhance the content or the organization. Is 'smartsections' a good one to use?
