Re: XOOPS 2.6.0 Alpha 1 Testing
Using Xampp 1.8.1 which is...
PHP = 5.4.7
MySQL = 5.5.27
I have noticed two main issues with 2.6.
With the install program as it is if the lib and data directories are not available it will error stop the program instead of just stating it can't find them on the page.
If I have the files in the main directory and where I want to put them it won't stop and I can change them on the page. Looks to simply be an error trapping issue or not checking for the existence of the file.
The other issue may be something known but should be considered...
The new admin GUI has lots of good ideas but is very kludgy in how it works.
With the extensions for instance.. 3 of them do nothing when you click on them from the control panel. PDF, QRCode and Logger.
PDF has no options or menus so it should not be listed in the control panel as a selectable icon IMHO.
QRCode and Logger should go to their "preferences" screen.
After having played with the current 2.6 I can see it is headed in the right direction but it definitely needs some work before it should be beta. Will go back to the "trabis" thread for that discussion...
