I imagine the reason why it isn't released is because it most probably uses hardcoded links to the different categories that are displayed. I seem to remember that was what I did with that spotlight module a long time ago, to get it working for me. Plus a heap of modifications to the templates.

Hi,

Anyone knows if already the "Latest XOOPS news" block can be reproduced in our websites?

Thanks

Dont even think of it.

I bet on it, this feature is not coming at all. You may get some hope here but at the end u will not get nothing.

This is some SECRET HACK and the DEV dont want to share it.

I think you'll probably find that Rowdie's closer to the correct answer.

I created a xmspotlight module similar to xoops.org latest news spotlight. As you can see at www.xoopsmalaysia.org.

But have to ask core team, if i can release this module

May be. But if sooooo many people are asking for that, I guess DEV should consider to release it.(something close to it). Why don’t u think that way??

I myself dont care if I have to manually edit few lines to get it to work every time coz it worth that. I need that feature more than any other thing.

@ smdcom
Please please. Release it. It seems to be the closest to the original. (My first real hope)

Just make sure it works with XOOPS 2.0.13.2 and the latest news module

Read what rowdie says. It would do no good to release as it is hard coded for the categories on this site. You would still need to hack the module to get it to work for each and every site.

My apology if I am doing wrong (or saying wrong).

But the only thing I am asking is that, if so many people want to get that look at their site why don’t the DVE consider it the request to release the hack that do that.

If the one that is working here is hard coded, may be it can be done the other way.

May be hervet can do some modification to news module itself that can give something like we have here.

Is there any way that the voice of the users can be heard??
If u can remember, there are so many posts regarding this.
