Unfortunately, unlike the 2.2.x. series - the 2.3.x has only the ability to put blocks "in the module" and not the ability to choose "pages in the module"

The 2.2.x has the ability to put a block (lets say Videotube)
in:
- all module pages
- View by user
- search youtube
- Video help

And that is the BIG BIG minus in it !!!

I never tried 2.2 but that sounds like a great way of handling blocks!

Thanks also to nmshah for making my life a bunch easier!

I still think the present set up is just about the worst of all possible combinations. How do we petition for a change in the next release, or does anyone know what's in store for v3.0?
Never let a man who does not believe something can be done, talk to a man that is doing it.

Maybe, it will be already realised in V2.4, since simpleXOOPS is based on the 2.2.x series. (Didn't check out block handling in simpleXOOPS.)

Yep - it's one of the greatest thins in the 2.2.x and there were some modules that really took advantage of it .... Weblinks module gave the option to put blocks in it's main categories - Imagine you can put relavant blocks for your module's pages content !!!!
It opens a lot of posibilities - like put relevant ads in the right forum or the right article-category ... etc'

SO - yes - the 2.3 series is good , but still has to adopt some 2.2.x abilities
