Re: Repeated module incompatibility with xoops upgrades

Mamba thank you for responding:
There is a current migration taking place from xoops to joomla, wordpress and other CMS as I am sure you are aware; it is because of the very issues that I raised in this posting.

Your statement, "The key is to remember that XOOPS is not a company that you buy a product from, but an Open Source project, which is depending on the support from the community. The more each of us give back to the project, the more successful XOOPS will become. We need to help each other within our set of skills/capabilities. "

Please note that it is irrelevant as to whether xoops is a multimillion dollar corporation or a free CMS I pulled out of a Cracker Jack box; there are hundreds if not thousands of open source projects on the internet and not one CMS, has such a negative history and an ongoing cycle of redundancy within its community like that of xoops.

It is clear to me that I will continue to be provided with backhanded explanations / apologies; I hold no grudges and will continue to use xoops and as soon as I am able I will donate to xoops because after all, xoops has provided me with a free website software. Would I recommend it or sing its praises? Absolutely not; not at this juncture.

Any who, I don't go around in circles and we have just made full lap in this discussion; this is where I get off.

Thank you to everyone that responded; much appreciated.

Re: Repeated module incompatibility with xoops upgrades

John there are many people watching this post and it very ufortunate that I was given a "politically correct" response; I still don't know what xoops personal journey has to do with anything I expressed; consumers don't care if your company is bouncing back or going through hard times; they just want to know that the product you provide works; period!

I asked Mamba earlier, " Now in terms of helping to update the mod list, by compatible what do you mean becasue if you are on the letter L, how do you explain that in CBB the welcome forum page does not work? I needed that feature! I left xforum because CBB was supposed to be compatible... For me compatible means every single function in module works with whatever version of xoops I am referencing; nothing less."

Mamba still has not responded to this question; Rodney's response was awesome for additional information and will be used by me going forward however it did not answer the question that I originally asked, "why does the corrected list contain errors?"

... and as you have now pointed out your mod is on a list that is should not be on...

xoops you may not realize it but you are taking two steps forward and ten steps back at every turn; you are doing a whole lot of listening but you are not HEARING what is being asked of you from your membership / users; if you do not hear what is being asked then you can not EFFICIENTLY respond to their needs...

I have never released a program and know nothing about that; good to know.

Re: Repeated module incompatibility with xoops upgrades

Hey Rodney,
That is perfect!!!!! I did not know about the different stages (Alpha, beta etc). I have seen some download pages with statements that the product still needed testing so those I don't use.

I don't know if this is written anywhere on the site and I missed it but if it is not could you please post so others know; not everyone who uses xoops or other cms are coders or familiar with the jargon.

Thank you so much

Re: Xdonatinons and Xoops 2.4

ghia does the fix you recommend make the mod auto add the user to the appointed user group; right now that does not work and its other features don't work; basically what works is it linking to the paypal page

Re: Repeated module incompatibility with xoops upgrades

for the cpanel prompts, godaddy has a hosting panel and when I get there it will tell me that my applications have new updates available for download. Every time I call for tech support they always tell me that I must first update my xoops first becasue the update probably addresses some of the issues I am having; most of the time the update does however then as already stated another mod or two go out of whack. I have also been instructed in the past from users on this site that I should update so that my mod would work (whatever mod was giving trouble).

Hope that clarifies things; to update or not to update that is the question...

Re: Repeated module incompatibility with xoops upgrades

Mamba I noticed you have completely disregarded my last question so I will ask again as it is very relevant to us users....

Please clarify what xoops means when they say a module is "stable/compatible." Are we to understand that is means some functions in the module will work and some may not; is this why such modules are still being listed in your newly updated compatible/stable module list?

Right now there are some mods I want to try and I am confused as to what is what; there are some updated versions of my mods on the Blue Move page, can I use those; do they work 100% with xoops 2.4.4????

Re: Repeated module incompatibility with xoops upgrades

"Just when I thought I was out... they pull me back in." Did you not you feel the closure in my last response Mamba? LMAO

Surpass has surpassed my budget... my users now have to share the cost of running the site and those prices although reasonable are not in the budget right now; I need godaddy prices and Surpass quality if that even exists; clearly I am fast asleep with that one.

XOOPS 2.4.4, with PHP 5.2.13 and mySQL Version 5.0.91. is what I have now, I'm not touching 2.4.5. ...funny when I complained to godday about all the problems I was having they said it was a xoops issue.

Yes please indicate the version compatibility, they do that on the wordpress site; when I see a plugin that isn't on the same level as my wordpres version I automatically keep searching for another plugin that has the features I am looking for; THESE are the types of the changes that I am speaking of that needs to be but in place here on xoops; little changes make for happy users.

Now in terms of helping to update the mod list, by compatible what do you mean becasue if you are on the letter L, how do you explain that in CBB the welcome forum page does not work? I needed that feature! I left xforum because CBB was supposed to be compatible...

For me compatible means every single function in module works with whatever version of xoops I am referencing; nothing less.

Re: Repeated module incompatibility with xoops upgrades

Guys I had 2.3 and was told to upgrade (search and you'll see), and also I tested all mods on my test site first; 99% of my probs came from upgrading xoops not installing modules.

Mazarin
It would be great is the big guy asked himself, "Why is it that Mazarin could install all the recommended mods and install all the updates with no problems and yet BeautyBrains has chaos and mayhem? Hmmm.... if we just could REPLICATE Mazarin's situation and PREVENT the issues of BeautyBrains, we might be on to something...

Peekay
...ahhh yes, 2.3, "good times!"

Mamba
Please consider my points mentioned earlier in doing your corrections... "there is no benefit in correcting a link to an outdated module; remove the mod all together from the xoops site.

Guys, thank you for your opinions and suggestions; it is very much appreciated; I will do as suggested; be patient and in the meantime touch nothing! I am just going to focus on fixing the mods that are giving me probs by posting on here as per usual until remedied AND I will ignore the cpanel prompts to update my xoops.

Now if you don't mind, I must now go and complain to godaddy about their constant server errors that prevents me from getting on my xoops site so I can fix it! (wink)

Thanks again guys
