Re: If we were to start a 2.6 Branch what would you like to see.

@redheadedrod mate perhaps i could help you with that project. it sounds interesting and I think this is something really really missing from xoops.

Moreover, we should have all configurations in the admin area (debuging, user level that will see debug info etc.)

we should also make a standart htaccess file for url rewriting

I use the following one,
-for redirecting to my page with www always in front of the url, -for custom error pages (i'm writing this bit of code trying to make it a bit more flexible),
-and to stop from hotlinking images.

Quote:

Options +FollowSymlinks

ErrorDocument 404 /error_pages/404.php
ErrorDocument 403 /error_pages/403.php

RewriteEngine On
rewritecond %{http_host} ^mysite.gr [nc]
rewriterule ^(.*)$ http://www.mysite.gr/$1 [r=301,nc]

RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://(.+\.)?mysite\.gr/ [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http(s)?://(www\.)?facebook.com [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http(s)?://(apps\.)?facebook.com [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$
RewriteRule \.(jpg|jpeg|png|gif|bmp)$ http://img190.imageshack.us/img190/8210/stoleni.png [NC,R,L]

perhaps this could help someone.

Finally I think there should be a major database redesign so as to apply multilingual data, adding the language parameters in the tables and fields holding actual content. perhaps ids of that fields shouldn't be autoincrementing and unique? we could have the same ids with data in different languages.

This will give developers a mechanism to write their code with multilanguage support in mind. Xlanguage is very stiff at the moment.

Which project are you talking about?

The uModules project?

The rmcommon project looks promising and when I get further along I will be looking at how I can incorporate that into my project as well if it turns out that is a viable option. I haven't heard any module developers say it is a great system or not yet.

Re: If we were to start a 2.6 Branch what would you like to see.

Heres my wishlist for a 2.6 branch

1. URL rewriting in core, at least removal of /modules/ but must be simple (radio button) and not have to still hack any files.
2. Better image manager with search functionality, option to insert images as HTML as you cant insert alt attribute with bbcode (i dont think), no alt tags is not good for seo or accessiblity.
3. Add description to custom block, for example if you dont add a title it can be difficult to find that block in the list of you have a lot of custom blocks
4. Perhaps a way to append a class to a block & title from the admin side to create custom css rules for a specific block.

That's all I can think of right now.

Re: If we were to start a 2.6 Branch what would you like to see.

@redheadedrod: i was probably reffering to the uModules project. isn't this the one close to the class approach of modules i suggested in my earlier post?

Re: If we were to start a 2.6 Branch what would you like to see.

Yes, I am still trying to get some other non computer things accomplished before I can start working on this. I will be looking heavily at the rmcommons system to see if I can make use of that as well. Might be a good way to jump start my project since that project is already doing alot of what I wanted to do.

Re: If we were to start a 2.6 Branch what would you like to see.

Once I see where we are going with the 2.6 branch and where my uModules stuff is going I will be rewriting a number of modules and perhaps writing some new ones. By the time I am finished with uModules I should know the core stuff inside and out and be able to help with the core.

A note about the Zend Framework. It did look to be a good thing to base X3 off of. Not sure how things will end up with XE at this point but it does look like a good base for X3. Alot of things are built into it. I do hope we look at a minimum of using a lot of the PEAR libraries and cutting out a lot of the core code and simplifying it. PEAR has been included with PHP5 since 5.2 I believe I read. It is not always installed but would be simple to include support in the core for it. If the host doesn't have it you can still load it locally.

And since PEAR is supported as an extension of PHP5 it would be easy to make use of their functions and those functions are tested to be stable in the "stable" versions.
