Re: XOOPS 2.6.0 Alpha 1 Testing

You were too quick!

The download link is in the release news.

I had to create this forums first, so I could include the link to this forum in the release. Now we have links to each other in both places.

Re: XOOPS 2.6.0 Alpha 1 Testing

One thing about the Alpha 1 release.

The extensions should reside in their own directory and not the module directory. It can be a little confusing especially to new users if an item is a module or extension. This should be a simple thing to fix.

Also since Extensions are really parts of the core that were moved to external code and some modules rely on this code we should establish a "standard" api definition for the base extensions. So if a "replacement" extension is written it will produce the same results to anything that uses it as the original extension. Doesn't mean the extensions can't do MORE but the bare minimum should be set as a standard and approved by someone. For now the core developers but down the road someone who is a module support person.

As an example, the ratings system... I may at some point be writing my own system that will extend the current rating system but I will need to support the main code that the ratings extension does now. The great thing about it being in an extension is now I can create an extension replacement and it is NOT a core hack so it should work across releases of the core. Similar to providing a module...

I haven't looked at the code related to extensions yet. Is support for specific extensions hard coded in or are they flexible like a normal module?

Chance is that it will be also become confusing for not new xoops users. (think of theme and template and the frequently asked questions about this.)

As for releasing 2.6.0: Great job developers are doing. I feel trust is coming back to Xoops, which feels actually very good.

PHP 5.3.3 on Denwer

Installation is OK.

I can confirm that blocks are not draggable.

Hmm, don't have these problems with PHP 5.3.15 and PHP 5.4.5

Can somebody else confirm the issues, and specify the platform they are using?

Please submit a request to SourceForge. I tend to agree with you, but I don't know how easy it will be to do.

Re: XOOPS 2.6.0 Alpha 1 Testing

Install gives a blank page after step 10, all other steps including step 10 don't give any errors or missing extentions. It's on a shared hosting server.
