Re: Please post modules that you know DON'T WORK in Xoops 2.2.2
This does produce a upgrade problem with users with production sites. The XOOPS version upgrade is supported, so updating to 22.214.171.124 to 2.2.x is not so much of a problem any more. But I have production sites using a few important content modules that are simply not compatible with 2.2.x and have little chance of being updated in the near future if at all.
We have a situation where there is a natural divide growing between upgradable material and that which is relegated to only useful for old versions of xoops.
This means that many useful modules need to be discarded by webmasters or they need to remain with using the old XOOPS 2.0.x version. Not a happy state of affairs for the ordinary XOOPS user who already has a site on pre 2.2.x. He wants to upgrade and move on, but is locked with old incompatible modules.
At the risk of making a lame suggestion; would it be possible for core developers to define and document the crucial changes in 2.2.x that prevent compatibility with old 2.0.x series?
Providing this might at least kick start module developers to get their editors out and make the changes to upgrade.
