A stupid newbie question, but I have been curious about this for a while. What constitutes a project upgrading from say a 2.3.1 to 2.3.2 instead of 2.3.1 to 2.4.1? Is the last decimal just some slight debugging or what? And how many changes would have to be made for it to go from something like a 2.4.1 to version 3 instead of 2.5.1 or 2.4.2? A complete overhaul? Hopefully that made sense. I know this sounds like a stupid question, but I'm sure I'm not the only newbie out there who's unsure about this. Thanks in advance.

I can't seem to find the answer to this anywhere so I turned to the XOOPS forum. Is there a way to name a custom block without the block name appearing above it? One example: I have a block that says "Welcome to mydomain.com!" and some info about the site. I want to name the block something like "Welcome" so when I am searching through my custom blocks it will be easy to find, but I do not want the word "Welcome" (or whatever the block name is) to appear at the top of the block. I am currently using XOOPS version 2.3.2 with the Zetagenesis theme.
Thanks,
John

Is the online theme builder still available anywhere? Or something similar to it? I was reading about it in the news section about it being at katthemes.com, but I see that site is up for sale. Please let me know if you have a information. Thanks.

Ok I got it. I just needed to edit the file in the cloned template to match the original code. Strange I had to do that though.

I just noticed something interesting. When I view the file on my computer, it is complete, but when I view it from the admin template blocks area the code is cut short.

Problem with cloned template

After I cloned the default template, when I tried to switch over to it in preferences I got the following error message:

Error: Smarty error: [in db:extcal_block_minical.html line 8]: syntax error: unclosed tag {if} (opened line 5). (Smarty_Compiler.class.php, line 317)

I looked at the code in this file and as far as I can see the {if} tag on line 5 DID have a closing tag. Also, the links to modules in the main menu were replaced with this:

<{$block.lang_home}> <{foreach item=module from=$block.modules}><{$module.name}> <{foreach item=sublink from=$module.sublinks}> <{$sublink.name}> <{/foreach}> <{/foreach}>
(Edit: I am only experiencing this problem when using the theme I was using when I cloned the default template)

It looks like maybe it's a problem with the extCal but I've never had a problem with the module, including the minical, but I don't know I'm new to this. If anyone could help me out with this it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

newbie question - make xoops home page

I am new to XOOPS and my knowledge of PHP is VERY limited. I currently own a website hosted by godaddy.com and I want my XOOPS site to be the home page. Here's the problem: my XOOPS website is currently in a folder called XOOPS (aslclub.net/xoops/ is the only way to access it) and I don't know how to make it my homepage when I go to aslclub.net. I tried moving all the XOOPS files to the main root folder but I get a bunch of errors. Do you know how I could fix this? I am using godaddy as my host which installs the program for me, so if you can tell me how I can connect a new XOOPS installation with the existing database (godaddy has an option of installing XOOPS in the root folder but it creates a new MySQL database each time I download it) that would help too. Here's the error messages by the way. Thanks a lot in advance!

I was working on my website yesterday and ran into a problem with the main menu and logo. the area where the XOOPS logo used to be was replaced with:

<{$xoops_sitename}> <{includeq file="$theme_name/userbar.html"}>

and my main menu was replaced with:

<{$block.lang_home}>
<{foreach item=module from=$block.modules}>
<{$module.name}>
<{foreach item=sublink from=$module.sublinks}>
<{$sublink.name}>
<{/foreach}>
<{/foreach}>

also the icons normally in the top right (im using zetagenesis theme) are no longer there. it seemed to have happened suddenly and for no apparent reason so any idea how i could fix this? I am a XOOPS newbie and I know almost nothing about php so any help would be appreciated. thanks.
