Article Management System (AMS) 2.42 RC1 Support Forum

This is official AMS support forum for AMS 2.42 RC1 only. For further version, we will setup dedicated bugs/forum/sighting web.

What Is AMS

AMS is a highly modified version of the News 1.2 for Xoops, and adds a huge amount of features to give the webmasters a lot more control over their content while still maintaining an easy to understand and use interface. AMS is highly scalable, and is geared towards performance, and as such is well suited to large article repositories that attract high amounts of users.

Re: Article Management System (AMS) 2.42 RC1 Support Forum

Installed on my testserver, looks good so far.
There is however still a bug in visit.php

if you type the direct url to a attached file you are allowed to see it even if you dont have the right audience level, solved when added following code to visit.php

include_once 'class/class.newsstory.php';


// Do we have the right to see the file ?
$article = new AmsStory($sfiles->getStoryid());
$gperm_handler =& xoops_gethandler('groupperm');
if (is_object($xoopsUser)) {
$groups = $xoopsUser->getGroups();
} else {
$groups = XOOPS_GROUP_ANONYMOUS;
}
if (!$gperm_handler->checkRight("ams_audience", $article->audienceid, $groups, $xoopsModule->getVar('mid'))) {
redirect_header('index.php', 3, _NOPERM);
exit();
}

Re: Article Management System (AMS) 2.42 RC1 Support Forum

very good with the audience levels features!

Just downloaded and installed to my testing server and found on the submit.php, the Body text box is missing in the Article submission page.

btw, i will try to test this module by insert around 200+ groups, 600+ topics and 3000+ articles into the database later. what do you think? will it overload the system?

Re: Article Management System (AMS) 2.42 RC1 Support Forum

1) If you are not using KOIVI, you need to put [extend] between your text to separate Body Text and Extended Text. However, for Koivi, Body Text and Extend Text is separated. I don't know why its not separated at the 1st place (for XOOPS default editor. I'm not the original author to comment about it). I plan to standardize it on RC2 or FINAL release.

2) AMS developed with performance in mind. Its designed to have minimal SQL queries and cpu processing. So, its so scalable and can support thousands (maybe millions ) of articles. IT-HQ already do some testing with AMS with 10,000 articles. You can read it here :

Re: Article Management System (AMS) 2.42 RC1 Support Forum

Glad to help Novasmart.

Over the past years i have made a few changes to the 2.41 version
When 2.42 becomes final i will port them to that version.
Some changes are personal choices to suit my needs.
If you like the changes i can always send you a copy. Drop me a PM.

Included the changelog of the mods.

Changelog.txt 2.41 Mods

Image Manager/Koivi Problems with 2.42 RC1

I have tested this module on two different test sites:
XOOPS version 2.16
PHP Version is 4.XXX (cannot remember)

When using the Koivi Editor and I try to add an image from the Image Manager, the image does not appear either in graphic or html format.

Process:
1. I Create (or modify/edit) an article.
2. Click the Image Manager Icon.
3. Brings up the pop-up box for the Image Manager.
4. I select an image that I want added to the article.

What happens:
1. Nothing...no image and no html/php code.

I can manually add the picture/graphics by using the "Image Source" button which of course inserts the html code right into the text box of the article I am creating/editing.

When using the XOOPS Default Editor, I can use the Image Manager with no problems but the formatting is rather bad so I'd rather find a fix for this Koivi problem.

Does anyone else have a problem using the Image Manager and Koivi Editor with AMS 2.42RC1?

Any suggestions to get the Image Manager working properly with this module?
