Re: Pre-alpha Module Restaurants v1.0

In my opinion, each module should only do 1 thing and do it really well. That module should ofcourse be able to easily hook into another module.

That way, for a restaurant, you would be able to have these modules:
* A card module showing the menu
* A reservation module allowing you to reserve a table
* A billing module that allows you to order the dishes in the card module online

That way, you have 3 modules that you can easily extend or combine with another one without having 1 mammoth of a module that will likely never be used by others because it's so specificly geared to 1 goal.
In this case, you could also change the card module to show for example a list of services you might provide, without having to offer a reservation module or a billing module.

That's the real strength of a good CMS: small modules that interact great with each other, that together build up a great solution :)

Re: Pre-alpha Module Restaurants v1.0

If I understand correctly, you want to add something which shows the menu, the locations etc?

In that case:
* Drinks cart
* Food carts
* Desserts
* Perhaps beer cart
* Locations
* Wine card
* Suggestions

And that's kinda everything I can think about :P

Kev

Re: Can't login

I was asking this because the profile module can change some registration things.

Re: 2.5.8 Upgrade

You should first install the XOOPS upgrade I suppose, then upgrade the modules.

RMCommon is only required if you're using modules that depend on it - in your case, that's not the case.

Re: Can't login

I can't recall right now how XOOPS stores it's passwords - have you saved the hash that you changed?

What modules are active?

Re: contact module with feedback auto-notification ?

Michael,

The effort required to make it work on both is so large that it simply isn't realistic.

You would need to do everything in div's and such for Bootstrap, while legacy themes expect tables.
You can't do that without writing 2 completely separate templates. And even if you could, it would be really hacky code as a result.

I think that with Xoops 2.6 coming up, we should break with this legacy and make the themes bootstrap friendly - it's way easier to update them, all modules have basic styling implemented that is easy to override and it's responsive.

XOOPS legacy themes are based on tables, so they are as static as can be. Every form is implemented as tables, and if you even TRY to avoid tables, you get the hard task of trying to make it responsive.

I think it's time to break with the legacy themes and move forward with the Bootstrap based themes/modules. If someone doesn't want to upgrade, they can simply stick with XOOPS 2.5.x and the modules for that.

Just my opinion on this. It's better to support 1 thing very well rather than supporting 2 half-cooked solutions.
