This is one of my biggest gripes about Xoops. I would love to do this! Thanks for the offer to translate.

This just happened to one of my instances, too. Any ideas on how to fix this?

EDIT: Okay, I just figured it out. My host suggested using PHP5 to clear up another issue and it turns out a few characters in the date format of the global.php settings file weren't playing nicely. The fix in this post cleared it right up for me:

Thanks for the answers. I can wait a couple of weeks.

I'm guessing from the silence:

1) this has already been talked about recently (though I couldn't find any info in the forums or news)

2) there is a ban on asking this question

3) No one knows the answer (or at least no one who has read this post)

4) No one cares

Hey guys, been a while since the Module Repository has been down for additions/updates and I'm wondering if there is any new news on when we can expect the new Module Repository to be available? A month, six months, a year?

Thanks,
Bill

Re: what kind of printer(s) do you use at home?

I have two ink jets:

- Canon i470D
- HP Photosmart 8150 with lcd screen

They're both decent printers but sometimes I don't use one of them before the ink dries out. I often have to print a page 3 times and running a cleaning cycle to get the prints to come out good. And I HATE the fact that those HP color ink cartridges are $40 and up.

Right now I'm in the market for an inexpensive network laser printer. I work from home and don't need it often. But most of my printing is black. A color laser would be nice but I really want to keep the price to less than $150, if possible.

Thanks and back to you. I put up a new flag for the occasion and will shoot off some fireworks tonight. I traded my day-off holiday status for another weekday so I could run errands. Lots of places aren't open today and all the festivities I'll be attending happen after dark anyway.

Have a happy and safe 4th of July!

bump. It's hard to believe that no one has thought of this. Surely there must be some interest to reduce server load from searches.

Common Search Term Results?

I searched and didn't find anything on this subject so here's a new post.

I'm building a new XOOPS site that will probably see a lot of use of the search function. I'd like to reduce database calls. Is there a way to intercept searches for common words so I can send users to a pre-made results page? The site will not have a lot of frequent content updates so I'm not worried about "canned" search results getting stale quickly. I just want to reduce server load.

For example, could I add some code in the search code such as (I know this isn't valid code, just giving an example):


if search query="monkeys" or "gorillas"
send to "/searches/apes.php"
if search query="terrier" or "dalmation"
send to "/searches/canines.php"
if search query="george jones" or "gomer pyle"
send to "/searches/humans.php"


If one of those terms isn't used, the regular search would proceed.

Search Keyword Cache

I searched and couldn't find anything so here's a new thread.

It's conceivable that as my XOOPS site grows, more articles are published and search engine traffic increases, more and more people will utilize the search feature. While there are lots of good reasons for searche results to be dynamic, some sites just don't change all that much. For those sites, it seems like search keyword caching might be a good idea to reduce db queries/mysql server load.

For example, perhaps the top search on my XOOPS site each week is "car club". Instead of asking the db to spit out a new results page each time, how about a module that caches the search results for that key phrase for a specified period of time? There's no need to cache every tiny search. Maybe just the top 10. The number of cached terms and the cache time should be selectable. Caching should only occur for the specified terms during the first search for those terms if the cache period has expired for that term.

Doesn't sound like it would be that hard to do. Perhaps borrow from the built-in module caching feature?
