* sorry i can't resist to post this here..this just alittle suggestion for the system module

i hope some templates/images for system module in the front end is also improved..i think this is quick and pretty easy to do....you guys did a good job in the backend with beautiful icons..so this will be no problem

yes you see this a pretty simple issue but first impression is important for new user..

a. Update Icons especially default XOOPS text editor

this is so old..

Resized Image

b. hide empty fields...this is an eyesore..

I hope multilanguage feature will be "core inside" one day (no more module/hack).

Beside the cool new block system, the template manager is also one of the best of this release...it is redesign from XOOPS previous version

now its easy to clone the modules templates to your theme

example you want to edit your system module template to fit your theme..just select your theme and choose the force to generate and click submit...voila...all the modules templates is generated to your theme folder root/themes/yourthemes/modules


some suggestion & few bugs

1. missing images/text - eg save, cancel etc

2. when we edit a template and click save --save are successful but we are redirected back to the main page of template manager and not the template or theme that we are currently editing...<< will be cool if it stay in the same page and not back to main page of template manager

3. suggestion: the ability to choose which module and templates that we want to generate in our theme

Re: XOOPS 2.5 Pre-Alpha

I am joining, I will be developing with eclipse, rapidsvn, ubuntu 9.10 and other tools..

It is time to that right give some more roomage with the system, and as termed in relation to making things larger and glass ware - blow the database.

See in MySQL 5.0 the varchar can be any size.. like for example in corporate database and things like oracle, mssql, and other that will be supported in 2.6 (Dj give me the PDO Classes please so it is compatible)..

A varchar is 5000 character where the current varchar is 255 - this is an old 80s' coder title.

So as this SVN Working copy updates I will talk to you quietly on the forum about XOOPS 2.5

I see the new objectivity for language handling, about uniformly putting through some encoding functions.. TO allow for a flat file type sequences so you have perfect UNICODE Production everytime on any database format.. So the same unicode using the new objects like:

In 2.4.0 and later there are new object types some of which are these : This is taken from /kernel/object.php

These where added to XOOPS object handling:


The unicode one are for handling higher function characters beyond the ascii chart like arabic, french, chinese, greek and so on.

This functions allow for complete storage of URL Data on any format and it produce equally as well being transfered around and so on.

They take more room which is all possible with 2.5.0 and the scaling up to a correct format for a MySQL 5.0 class server.. with a larger varchar.

This way when the classes change you will have any language input..

THis one here is exceptionally important with IDN which from XOOPS 2.4.0 an later we have been able to handle and one of the only CMS that do..

That this this one:

What is an IDN you say well here is some examples of things you can registered right now with domains name an IDN:-

This is yoursite.com example in IDN:

Anyway I think we should migrate over so it plug and plays with language process where the UNICODE is stripped down to a flat file ascii sequence like storage of arrays..
