No Banner ads are displaying

I just downloaded and installed a clean 2.0.18 on a server to build a test site while I wait for a domain and hosting site to be set up.

However, I noticed that no banner ads displayed out of the box like on a normal XOOPS install. I checked, things were enabled.

I just checked, all the XOOPS installs are having the same problem. The other versions are 2.0.16 and 2.0.17 and they are not displaying ads either. And they were set to display the XOOPS Ad banners in the rotation.

Any ideas?

xhelp and languge strings update

I am building a order tracking system for a client based around XOOPS and the xHelp module. Basically what they wanted was very close to a helpdesk like system. xHelp, since I could define custom fields, seemed like an ideal solution.

Their big hang up is realtively cosmentic. Instead of "Ticket" they want it to say "Order". So instead of "Submit new Ticket" they want it to say "Submit new order"

So I went into the module's language file and edited all the text strings to say "order" instead of "ticket", but the changes are not being displayed. I tried using another computer and browser to make sure it wasn't a caching issues, but still they say ticket.

Any ideas?

When users try and access areas of the site that require a paid subscription, I'd like to set up a custom error that says, "This area may require as subscription to access" instead of the "Permision Denied" error. Where do I make that change?

Don't use 1and1.com's click and build

I've used 1and1.com for years, especially for my Ecommerce clients as 1and1.com as offered good features at good prices for years. I was happy to see click and built had the ability to install XOOPS on a system. Not that installation is that hard, but it just makes everything go much smoother.

Now I do use another hosting company that uses Cpanel and Fanastico. Which basically does the same thing. The only problem is this hosting company tends to have more downtime, but is based out of India and extremely cheap by US standards. Makes the perfect place for development and sandboxes.

At anyrate, I went to click and build and installed Xoops. Pretty easy and a few minutes later it was installed and everything was working. I then went to begin uploading additional modules and got the 550: permission denied error in FTP. There is no write access. No write access means no uploads of additional modules meaning that this makes it almost useless.

I contacted 1and1 support via email and got an answer a few hours later stating that the write permissions are disabled by the administrators for "technical reasons". I am calling their tech support number this morning and going to give them my ear full and threaten to cancel the account etc. etc..

Now you can still do a manual install just like the old days and everything works. But it's the fact they advertise the service and while it may have no ads, it's crippled.

As I've said before, I've used Fanastico via Cpanel for years and never had any problems. It's fill out a couple blanks, wait30 seconds, and then start uploading the customized templates and modules.

So if you think 1and1.com's click build is an easy XOOPS solution, think again and look into hosting elsewhere.

I'm having similar problems. FInally I got a new theme to work, but when I try to log in as admin, I get a blank white page...how do I fix this so I can go in and at least reset the main theme.

Also I've found clearing browser caches help if you go to a new theme.

Content DHTML FF Hack/FIX

Better solution that what I first posted:

Goto the template manager and clone the default template set.

Then edit the ct_dhtml_site_nav_block.html file
Here is the new code:

<style type="text/css" media="screen"
@
import "tanfa.css";
/**************** menu coding *****************/
#menu {width: 100%;} /* Width of Individual Menu */
#menu ul ul {
    
border:1px solid #FF9933; 
    
background-color:#C3CEE1;
    
margin-top:5px;} /* style of submenus */
/*******No Need To Edit Below Here***********/
#menu ul {list-style: none;margin: 0;padding: 0;}
#menu li {position: relative; [b]list-style: none;[/b]}
#menu ul ul {position: absolute;top: 0;left: 100%;width: 100%;}
<{$block.cssul1}>{displaynone;}
<{
$block.cssul2}>{displayblock;}
/***** General formatting only ****/
</style>
<!--[if 
IE]>
<
style type="text/css" media="screen">
body {
behaviorurl(<{$xoops_url}>/modules/content/csshover.htc);
font-size100%;

#menu ul li {float: left; width: 100%;}
#menu ul li a {height: 1%;} 

#menu a, #menu h2 {
fontbold 0.7em/1.4em arialhelveticasans-serif;


</
style>
<![endif]-->
<
table class="blocks" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0" width="100%">
  <
tr>
    <
td id="mainmenu">
        <
div id="menu">
        <{
$block.ct_menu}>
        </
div></td>
  </
tr>
</
table>


All I added is in bold.

Then in the General Settings, select your new template set and the DHTML menu in FF is fixed.

As to the MSIE font issue: something here looks odd to me with the tags and bracket

<!--[if IE]>
<
style type="text/css" media="screen">
body {
behaviorurl(<{$xoops_url}>/modules/content/csshover.htc);
font-size100%;

#menu ul li {float: left; width: 100%;}
#menu ul li a {height: 1%;} 

#menu a, #menu h2 {
fontbold 0.7em/1.4em arialhelveticasans-serif;


</
style>
<![endif]-->

content site menu submenu of a submenu

I am starting to move static content from our old site to the new one and here is how the current structure looks:

About Us (Site/Main Menu)
->The Episcopal Church
->->The Prayer Book
->->Scripture, Tradition, and Reason

->Ministries
->->ECW
->->J2A/Youth

Well when I click About us, The Episcopal Church and Ministries links unfold. However then when I click on "The Episcopal Church" the additional submenu containing the links to the Prayer book/Scripture/et. al pages do not appear. Can site menu only hand one submenu deep?

Now the pages do appear correctly in the content admin section and are ordered correctly.

From a practical standpoint, this may become a non-issue after a meeting with the Vicar and parish newsletter people on wendesday because chances are they will want links about the Church and Ministries on the main menu anyway.

But for future reference on other projects I'm using XOOPS on.

(site is still under development...that's why things are still ugly.

Sucess! That worked, now everything is displaying correctly. Thank you very much for the help. I knew I was missing something somewhere.

Thanks for the help, I got the navbar to the offical webcolors of ECUSA.

However I'm still having trouble with the background image (which I can work on and the logo)

See this is what is being a bugger on the logo. When you choose view source it gives the listing:

width="148" height="80"

However this is what I have listed in the "theme.html" page:

<td id="headerlogo"><a href="<{$xoops_url}>/"><img src="<{$xoops_imageurl}>images/logo.jpg" width="55" height="70" title="<{$smarty.const._YOURHOME}>" alt="<{$smarty.const._YOURHOME}>" /></a></td>


I have the height and width as they should be, however XOOPS doesn't seem to take into account that they have changed. 148x80 was the default the template originally came with. I am thinking I'm not changing it in the right place, but I can't find where else it is listed. Changing the theme.html page seems to do nothing to the site's design.

Thanks for the help so far.

CSS problems

I've been over the documentation and looked until I was bugged eyed at the code, but I have two problems I cannot explain.

I am creating a template for our church's new site based on the XOOPS default. I've changed dark blue to a lighter blue, as sanctioned by the Episcopal Church, but I can't seem to find the tan header part underneath.

http://www.transfigurationchurch.org/cms/

I want to change that tan part to the web shade of red as sanctioned by ECUSA.

Next is the background graphic. I tried changing it in the CSS file from bg to the new ghostshield.jpg that I create and want it to tile "under neath" the main sections of the site.

And of course the logo is having issues too. I tried placing the correct size in pixels in the IMG SRC in the theme.html page, but it doesn't want to accept the new size settings for some reason.

Any help would be great on where I need to change and what I need to change.
