Want to imbed another php application (phplist)into my XOOPS website, when people click on the "join the list" the page that loads does so inside my XOOPS page and then works from inside the page. Tried the "wraps" module and could not follow the instructions to get it to work right. Any other module in development? Similar to the joomla module.

I am not sure if the "wraps" module you tried was the same as "pagewrap" but i have had success using that one. I don't remember where I found the module originally but you can download it at my site (http://xoops.mattregister.com) in the downloads section.

It is easy to use.
* Name the directory whatever you want
* Edit the xoops_version.php to reflect the changes
* add your content in the inxex.php section (more often than not, I just iframe the content in)
* upload and install

I have about 15 installs of this module in various sites and they work fine. Here is an example (http://churchthatcares.org/modules/facilities)

thanks for the download, I was just looking for that module.

BTW, I really like what you have done here:

http://churchthatcares.org/modules/facilities/

Is that done with MyMaps? or just the regular Google Map functions..

Cheers,

That map was done with just the google API. The easiest way I have found to do this is to use a tutorial here (http://www.econym.demon.co.uk/googlemaps/) and generate an html page of your map looking the way you want and then frame it into the wraps module. I am using an XML file for the pushpin information. It was alot simpler than it looks.

Can you be more specific in the directions as I'm a relatively newbie.
Directory?
which xoops_version file?
In my case the content is a whole program called phplist. Do I just reference the first page I want to load?

it does sound simple the way you explain it but I just need a little more detail.
Thanks.

No problem.

- yes, just reference the front page of your program.

step1: Install the email program on your server and get it working the way you want as a stand alone program.

Step2: go tohttp://xoops.mattregister.com to the downloads section and download the module.

Step3: modify the folder name of the module to whatever you want (email or webmail or whatever)

Step4: inside the module directory there is a file called xoops_version.php. Open it and edit where it calls for the directory name. It has to match the name you gave the directory.

Step5: Edit the index.php file to include your iframe.Include your iframe after the
<?php
include("../../mainfile.php");
include(
XOOPS_ROOT_PATH."/header.php");
$xoopsOption['show_rblock'] = 1;
?>
and before the
<?php
include(XOOPS_ROOT_PATH."/footer.php");
?>
in the index.php file.

Step6: upload the new mofule to your server and install like a normal module.

**NOTE** this module has no admin section and you will not see it in the left hand side of the admin section, but if you go tohttp://yoursite.com/modules/yourmodulename you will see what you want.

Let me know if you have problems with this.

Your iframe will probably look something like this:
<IFRAME SRC="http://yoursite.com/whateveryourpathistoyourprogram.php" WIDTH=600 frameborder=0 HEIGHT=650></IFRAME>

Better module now called MyIframe. Look it up in the module section. Much easier to use.
