Many very nice themes have a sample logo up top...that seem to present a problem when trying to change the logo.

When the designer uses a gradient in the logo image that matches the background...

Resized Image






...we have trouble creating a new logo image that matches the gradient.

Is there a trick we don't know yet?

Thanks, 3lr0n

That did it nicely on the default Theme.

I will try it on the desired Theme now.

Take a look at this mockup for a question about the Left Column...

http://www.backupkit.com/

I have all Blocks shut off for the Left Column in the two modules installed.

Why is the area that would be occupied by the left column not 'consumed' by the module's page?

In other words, why don't I have full width in the Module when all blocks are off on the left?

I set the XOOPS default theme to show the issue...I will probably build the site with OWDRefresh theme...but I see the issue with all themes tested.

as always...thanks

Take a look at Formulize and Pageworks, for creation and viewing.

..just curious to note that 16777215 converts to FFFFFF in hex.

? Zero - 1
or a bad table in the DB?

A good postscript as well:

Also figured out (sheepishly) that unless the Who's Online block is visible on a module's page...it won't update the Online Module value.

...that slowed up the debugging a bit.

Once I set up the 'shadow' debug install of XOOPS on the same server....I now had a working version to compare to my non-working site on the same server.

That eliminated any server-related issues.

I then compared all the entries in both databases that related to online and module data...and they both looked good...so that eliminated any flakey database issues.

So..the problem had to be in one of the scripts dealing with Who's Online.

I did a 'word search' for online_module in the 2.0.16 install package to find those files that deal with this term.

It was located in:

/kernel/online.php
/misc.php
/mainfile.php

I downloaded each of those files from both the working and non-working sites.
Using a file-compare program, I compared each file from the bad site to it's sister on the good site.

Ignoring the specifics that relate to the install path, db name, etc., the ONLY difference came up in line 41 of mainfile.php

The bad site had:

define('XOOPS_CHECK_PATH', 1);

The good site had:

define('XOOPS_CHECK_PATH', 0);

Changed the 1 to 0, uploaded the changed file to the bad site....

...and, bingo...we now see the module column in the More... popup, as well as the useage info in the Who' Online block.

One of life's mysteries...how did it get changed in the first place? (rhetorical question.. )

Anyone with insight care to explain that line and what it does?
It is commented as:
"Protect against external scripts execution if safe mode is not enabled"

Anyhow, we can put this bast*rd in the books.... done.

Quite an educational experience.
