Re: News 1.67 RC 1 ready for testing

More info about the smarty problem!
I turned off the block latest news (news_block_top.html) and site is working fine.

This line (915) is the problem in news_block_top.html : <{if $block.sort=='counter'}>

Re: News 1.67 RC 1 ready for testing

After editing a news article it is no possible to edit it again and the news article is not visible anymore (i edit the news article by deleting the image who first was uploaded)

Re: News 1.67 RC 1 ready for testing

I have had a (this?) similar issue once. The article could still be seen as an unpublished article but without edit button next to it. I only could edit the article by using the edit/delete Story ID feature. After editing it could be seen again.

Re: News 1.67 RC 1 ready for testing

In adminside for News were 3 lists : Automated articles, last 10 articles, expired articles.

In "last 10 articles" there is an edit and delete button for each article.
In "expired articles" there is a delete button for each article.

Replace line 237 in admin/index.php
<a href='".XOOPS_URL."/modules/news/submit.php?returnside=1&amp;op=edit&amp;storyid=" . $eachstory -> storyid() . "'> <img src='" . $pathImageIcon."/edit.png.' ' title="._AM_EDIT."></a>


with
<a href='".XOOPS_URL."/modules/news/submit.php?returnside=1&amp;op=edit&amp;storyid=" . $eachstory -> storyid() . "'> <img src='" . $pathImageIcon."/edit.png' title='"._AM_EDIT."'></a>


Now there is an edit and delete button in "expired articles"! A bug or not?

Why there is no edit and delete button for "Automated articles"?

Re: News 1.67 RC 1 ready for testing

I talked to Mamba who plan to merge the three modules of news, xnews and AMS.

As soon as possible to begin writing the code to start the brand new module, named news or xoopsnews, call it as we see in a short time.

Certainly will bring all the features of this three modules.

Re: News 1.67 RC 1 ready for testing

This is the situation:

- Zyspec was looking into into the current News module to refactor it to Blue Move specs.

- There is the xNews module with some enhancements. I believe, Timgno was doing some updates there, since the original author of xNews didn't have time to carry it on.

- There is AMS module that is based on older version of XOOPS, with some interesting features

- Voltan is working on a fork of fmContent that he wants to make a replacement for News

So let's get all the developers who have been doing something with all these version together, and let's see how can we have a community effort with all of them working on the same version. To be honest, I would prefer one "awesome" module, than 3-4 weaker ones with overlapping functionality.

Who else would like to get involved? Can we make it a showcase of what can happen if we as a community get together?

Re: News 1.67 RC 1 ready for testing

I would have thought of this, if you're with me, we can open another thread for this

Re: News 1.67 RC 1 ready for testing

I love the idea of combining good features from those three modules... But does this mean development of the regular news module stops? I personally prefer to have a fixed news module first, with current features instead of waiting a long time before a new module is stable.

As far as I am aware news 1.67 works pretty well, except for a problem with the top-news template and some other minor issues. I am not a coder but... aren't those relatively easy issues to fix? Then we have at least a good working news module.
