Counting clicks on a Flash banner

The title says it all about my problem: how to count clicks on a Flash banner? The problem is that I got a banner from a customer, that inside includes a URL to their site. This of course bypasses the Xoops-generated URL (that goes to IMG SRC tag) and disables the Xoops’ mechanism of counting the clicks. Customer is frustrated, because he can’t see the click ratio and I don’t know what to do about it since I completely don’t know Flash.

Maybe they should change something in their banner?

OK, I figured that one out I think. The archive doesn't have properly set permissions on directories. A couple of chmods (og+w on cache, template_c and uploads) and it now seems to work.

2.0.3 -> 2.0.5 upgrade problems

Hi,
I've just tried to upgrade my production site to 2.0.5. Everything went OK on the test site, so I thought it would be as easy. But it wasn't. After applying the 2.0.3 -> 2.0.4 patch I was unable to get to the admin section (full symptoms described below). So I applied the 2.0.4 -> 2.0.5 patch. The result was a complete crash - site was inaccessible with following error message:

WarningFailed opening '/mnt/drugi/serwisy/wlan/htdocs/class/errorhandler.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/php/includes:/usr/share/php'in /mnt/drugi/serwisy/wlan/htdocs/include/common.php on line 32

Fatal error
Undefined class name 'xoopserrorhandler' in /mnt/drugi/serwisy/wlan/htdocs/include/common.php on line 33


As fas as I could I downloaded the 2.0.5a.tar.gz package and overwrote all the files except the mainfile.php with the files from the archive. That brought my site back to life (what a relief), but I'm still unable to access the admin section and the symptoms are just as they were after applying the 2.0.4 patch.

Symptoms: when I try to get to the admin section I get the screen that says that it's the first time I open the admin section (which is not true of course). When I click yes the screen that tels me to wait while the page reloads appears - on top of it is this small error message:
failed open file

and then I'm back to the screen that says it's the first time blah blah...

What can I do to regain the access to administrative interface? I already deleted the cache contents.

I wrote a small script that outputs 10 latest news from the news module as an RSS or custom formated XML. Maybe it could be usefull to others - I would like someone responsible for the news module to have a look at it. How can I get in touch with such a person?

Could XOOPS developers respond in that thread about the chances of that being included in 2.0.3? It is really an important issue!

I agree, but no definite answer from important XOOPS figures appeared on this forum. Let's hope they at least know what the popular demand is.

Is any of Xoops2 developers reading this discussion? What are the chances of permanent loging being implemented in the final Xoops2? I would like to know that before I'll start customizing XOOPS for my own site because if permanent login is not possible with XOOPS I would have to look for an alternative.

I don't get it - why this should be dangerous? Somehow /. manages thousands of users and you have to login only once on a new browser installation, which is perfectly reasonable.

So what? Even if such places do exist people there would not switch this option while installing the software.
