Wfsection article printing issue

I have been using XOOPS since 2003, but had never downloaded and installed wfsection.

Well, I did download and installed it yesterday but I have encountered a problem, which I googled for and searched here but came up with no results.

The issue is as follows: When I hit the "Print" icon on an article, I get the plain printing version but the text is missing. You may have a look for yourselves here.

It is not a great issue or anything but someone may wish to print an article in the future. I tried to see if there is anything wrong with the print.php file inside the wfsection directory, but the code looks ok to me. What seems to be the problem is that a certain variable has not been correctly declared.

In any case, has anyone encountered this issue before? I tried searching the forums but came up with no results.

BTW, wfsection is a great module. Flexible and powerful at the same time. The only thing that spoils the fun is the printing issue

Any ideas?

Many thanks in advance,
Panos

Edit: Fixed by upgrading to version 2.01.

Re: table blows up on some modules

Ok, first of all don't panic This will get you nowhere.

Right. Make sure above all that your theme.html file is properly structured, that is:

<html>
 <
head>
  <
title></title>
 </
head>
<
body>
</
body>
</
html>


That is the basic structure minus of course all the divs the meta tags and so forth.

After making sure that this is the correct structure, link properly to your stylesheet. There are 2 ways of doing so. Either:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="path/to/style.css" />


or...

<style type="text/css" media="all">@import (/path/to/stylesheet.css);</style>


The "media" property can have different values but you can safely set it to "all" for now, that is, if you decide to link to your stylesheet that way.

Also, don't forget! Any link for styles, meta tags and so forth go between the "head" tags.

Once you have that straightened out, copy the style rules for the phpBB theme you are using to your style.css file and link to them from there.

First things first though. Make sure that your markup is correct!

Re: Help me.... "Default" and "Selectable Theme" are empty??

Strange If the theme folder was uploaded fine, then I don't see what may be causing this

Re: Theme width problem

Well, you are doing excellent for a beginner, I can tell you that! It's not an easy task creating a liquid layout for XOOPS as a lot of template editing is involved. *Sigh*. Of course, tabular data should be displayed as tabular data always. This is what tables were created for in the first place

As far as the real job goes, I feel you My studies and my work also get in the way. A lot

Re: table blows up on some modules

My GOD!! This gave me a headache!!

Yep, indeed it has some serious problems and you noticed the most important ones. First of though, if you are using Dreamweaver use it in "text" mode and modify the source directly!

Furthermore, I see a loooot of code there and unnecessary markup. I also see style rules being applied 2 or 3 times. Internal, external stylesheets you name it! They are all there

Finally, try to use lowercase letters since the DTD is XHTML 1.0 Transitional and uppercase letters are not allowed

Re: Theme width problem

Don't take me wrong tj. I didn't mean anything bad by using the word "dirty" there I was simply referring to the fact that this is the only way of solving this issue unfortunately and there is no better one.

I very much like your theme! I just visited your site and I have to say that you are doing a great job XOOPS is very flexible in the sense that the designer may completely customize its looks and tailor it down to his/her needs

As far as tables are concerned, I am aware of the fact that a number of people still use 4.x browsers unfortunately. At least with XOOPS we can minimize the markup and use CSS for the layout. Thank God for that

Re: Theme width problem

Oh, I forgot to make clear that tjs way to do it is the only one. Unfortunately it is either that or taking out the right column

In my first post I completely neglected that fact, sorry

Re: Theme width problem

Hmm, that's one way to do it but nonetheless a "dirty" one

I do not like hardcoding table widths either. In fact, I hate tables. I have been designing web sites for a little more than 4 years and I must say that I have suffered enough coding the old way.

For the last year, I have been coding with web standards in mind only. I haven't made a fully-liquid XOOPS theme yet though, as I didn't have the time to. I do like however the fact that XOOPS relies heavily on CSS for the layout. As for the tables used for the structure, what can I say? Noone's perfect

Re: table blows up on some modules

This has nothing to do with the upgrade (if applicable here) to 2.0.7.

This one is clearly a theme design issue. Try to read the markup inside your templates and have another look at your CSS and theme.html files for inconsistencies.
