Re: Error when clicking link in wflinks 1.03

I have been using WF-Links 1.04 in Xoop 2.3 for about two months or so. I really like the page ranking feature.

Now that I have blown smoke up skirt, I have a question for you. When I initially started using WF-Links I created and deleted some links. Since then I have created 7 links to sites that work prefectly.

I recently noticed that my main WF-Links page has some links on it that don't go anywhere. I submitted them as broken links and saw they were my first few links that I deleted a while ago.

I worked around the broken links by changing my 5 to 0 in links to show in the Main WF-Links page.

How do I remove broken links I don't see anything in the admin area about broken links.

Thanks

Re: 99.9% finished and would like your thoughts

Sweet concept and a very nicely laid out navigation for this site. We use coupons weekly for things like restaurants and automotive services at my house, I would need a good incentive to pay for a coupon service, maybe explaining to me how much I could save might convince me, or something along that line.

Re: XOOPSdemos close your site !

I realize no one knows how the site was attacked, but I do have a question along the lines of security to ask.

Their are some software sites that suggest changing the name of the admin directory to the name of your choosing for security purposes. Is changing the name of the admin directory advisable with Xoops? Is this a change that can be made in the config files alone or does one have to get into the nuts and bolts of the software to make this change happen? Is adding .httpaccess to this newly renamed admin directory a good idea?

Re: Multiple domains one server best practices

This is an update to my original question about what the best way to go about having one server, serve pages for multiple domains/websites.

The best way I have found to get the functionality that I wanted while still having the domains function properly for SEO was to ditch the forwarding and use DNS to resolve my domain names to the correct pages on my web server.

Multiple domains one server best practices

Hi All,

I am attempting to setup my domains/websites using the best practices for SEO and bot crawling optimization and so things just basically work properly. I have one hosted web server and I want to host multiple forwarded domains from this site.

I was originally hosting one domain on the web server http://www.mydomain0.com. I installed XOOPS and my second domain name is permanently forwarded to http://www.mydomain0.com/xoops using the domain name http://www.mydomain1.com. Using webmaster tools I am not able to verify my forwarded site and I want to be able to have google, msn and yahoo index my present sites and any new sites I add to this server.(NOTE the links provided are not real, I was using them for examples)

Is forwarding the best way to host multiple sites om my web server? Is there a better way? I want to eventually host three to four websites on this web server and I would like to know what the best practices are for hosting multiple sites in a optimized, best practices kind of way.

As I wrote earlier I have not figured out how to get google webmaster tools to verify my forwarded site, plus if I use mydomain1.com in mainfile.php I can only get to the top page, so I have to use mydomain0.com/xoops in mainfile.php to get the site to work properly.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, Thanks

Re: Multiple Google ads on one page

This is just a follow up to my last inquiry. My second set of Google ads began to appear without my intervention. It turns out on my page it looked sleazy having more than one ad per page since the information on each page is so sparse now. When I get more data per page I add the another Google ad to each page

Re: Multiple Google ads on one page

Did you ever figure out how to get two google ads to appear on your site at the same time. I am seeing the exact same problem that you are seeing.

What I have noticed during my testing to figure out this issue is I have gone to other sites that have dual or triple ads working properly and copied the google adsense code to a static webpage on my server and copy an identical copy to my Desktop.

The desktop version renders all ads fine in a browser and the exact same static page from my server will only render the first instance of the google ad using the exact same browser.

Re: www.unsinner.com

You have a very distinctive visual with your site. Is this your own theme? This is the first XOOPS powered site that I have seen that I could not quickly detect that is was a CMS powered site. I hope I can get to the level of XOOPS and CSS sophistication to make wonderful looking site too.

Very good job.

Re: Starting a new Xoops site

Do most users of XOOPS install XOOPS in the root web directory? My hosting site installed XOOPS for me. They installed the unzipped XOOPS in the root directory. On my Linux computer, that I am using for testing I installed all the files and folders under the XOOPS directory in the root directory.

The difference is on my test computer I can go to mysite.com and see my XOOPS index, on my host I go to mysite.com/xoops to get to my XOOPS index.

My next question is about directory structure naming conventions. Does it hurt anything to rename my modules directory to m and rename my actual modules in the modules directory to m0, m1 m2 as long as I change the paths in the config files?

I have certainly caught the XOOPS bug. I can hardly keep from logging into my site and this site to find out more about this great piece of software.
