Re: Editing templates

OK Stefan,

Thanks.

So, then I clone the whole set, and after that I will be able to edit them, when I need to?

Editing templates

Hi,

It seems that I am not able to edit templates.
When I am in the admin part to edit a block (modules/system/admin.php?fct=blocksadmin&op=edit&bid=..)
and then choose to edit the template (modules/system/admin.php?fct=tplsets&op=edittpl&id=..), then I get the editor window to edit the template.
Only it is not the fckeditor or something.

At the bottom there is only a button to view the result.
No button(s) for save or cancel.

I have that problem (?) at both my life site and my home apache server.

I'm using XOOPS 2.0.17.1

I did not notice whether it ever worked before, since I have not used that function before.

Any suggestion?

Jans

Re: Formulize / Pageworks /MySQL

Hi Julian,

Thanks for your post.
Also to Bluestocking many thanks.

I looked into xgarage, and it looks very good indeed.

What I will do for the moment is not much.
At this time I am rather busy at work and have not much time to spend.
However, there is still time to put some ideas on paper, to be worked out later.


Thanks again,

Jans

Re: Formulize / Pageworks /MySQL

Hi again,

Tonight something crossed my mind.
It is obvious that I want something that is not there yet, at least not nearly 'pre-cooked'.
In the postings above you can see a few things:
1. I am new to Xoops
2. I wanr to share data with people who are interested.
3. The data are in the database already
4. I don't know how to get those data properly on the people's monitor.

What I've seen so far of Xoops, is that there so may modules and that people get lost in it.
There are so may support forums, in so may categories, that one does not know where to look anymore.

Still, I think that XOOPS is very good, and I want to continue with it.

So far, so good.
What I want to say is simple:
I like to have a module that does not exist.
Eevrything on XOOPS is open source, so carried by the community.
So, let's make my module TOGETHER.
A lot of people want to learn more how everything works.
At least, I want to.
And he we have a good approach (at least in my eyes):
I don't know anything about Xoops, but I want to start building a module.
You can say: "We have some good tutorials and examples". That's true. See my other posting, on which I got a very good reply. See The search item.

To make a long story short: I want to propose that I start building a new module.
The purpose of that module is to show data of an existing database to the people. It can be a database of your stamp collection, book shelves, or what ever.
In my case I want to start with my database of the Top 2000.
It is a program on the dutch radio at the end of each year.

My database has tables of the artists, songs, rankings in the top 2000 of the last nine years.

One of the things, that I would like to hear your opnion about is the following question:
If people are interested, are we doing this "workshop" here, in one of the may forums, or you we do it on my own site. I could start a forum for it.

Please let me hear some idea's

Best regards,

Jans

Re: How to configurate the "Search"

Thanks Stefan,

Quote:
The modules need to be coded to make use of XOOPS search. Some are not and will not apear in the list of modules.


Can you tell me how they are coded?

Quote:
I think custom blocks are not searchable. You will need to make your own module or use one with search function.


I made an own module by now, yet very simple and basic.
I think, when I have an answer on the first part, it will solve this one as well, or .......?


b.r.,
Jans

Re: Formulize / Pageworks /MySQL

Hi Julian,

Thanks for the explaination.
It is not so that I am looking for an "out of the box" solution for my problem. I have been working enough with databases to know that there are always some things to change.

What I have done for the time being, was making my own module in which I put a query to search for the data, that I want to display.
Yot can take a look here if you like. The page is in Dutch and shows you the Top 2000 listings of the last 9 years.
But, of course it does not look fancy at all, since I did not implement any smarties or whatever.
Also, if I want to change something, I have to change the file "off line" and then upload it again.

Those two things (and many others), I did not find the time for, to find out how it is done.

Maybe later I can have a look at pageworks again.
Fot the moment I still have to decide what, and how, I all want to display.

Best regards,
Jans

How to configurate the "Search"

Hi,

Is there a way how I can "tell" the system where to search, when people are using the search option?
I noticed that, when you use the advanced search option, XOOPS give some thick boxes for modules where to search in.

But not all the modules, that are interesting to search in, are mentioned.

Also I made a block, to display data from a tabel in the database.
I like to have this block searchable.

Any help is welcome,

Best regards,
Jans
