Re: Testing Xoops Total 2.0.18 Package.

This is one reason im in favor of superadmin options made into the core. There should be 5 groups standard with Xoops.

Super Admin
Webmasters
Moderators
Registered Users
Anonymous Users

Bingo! Understand the power of custom blocks before granting access to anyone. (Hint: do a search for 'fork bomb')

Most of this is off-topic, but relevant to the discussion at hand - what features to add to a core distribution and which ones should not be added.

Webmaster access should be reserved for the site administrator only for system administration, not day-to-day access. As a rule, one of the first things I do with a new install is create a new group (call it what you want, and even rename Webmasters, like I do) for day-to-day maintenance and give them access to everything except:

Blocks
Groups
Preferences

I also cautiously add module administration for most modules - but, never for Protector.

Nice to see some interest in testing new release candidates, though

It is my choice not to support a commercial project based on open source.

If they want to make money with XOOPS go for it. There is nothing wrong with it in alot of peoples eyes.

All i said was...

(This is where my support for their work stops.)

Huh?

Surely you do not mean me? I thank everyone at every turn.

The function for replacing (text) emailadresses by an image doesn't work well, when I have an emailadres www.mysite.com the image shows www.mysite.co (so it 'forgets' the last character.

I think, you are in wrong way of thinking.

By the way, in GNU(2,3) commercial support and commercial product guarantees are allowed , and its normal practice.
