Some questions about xoops

Hey. First of all, I wanted to say thanks for this amazing CMS. Everything works great, but I have a ton of questions.

1. Is there a module that provides gender selection?
2. Birthday module?
3. Will it be possible to set every gender their own default avatar?
4. Sometimes, when I clean the cache, it remains. Is that ok?
5. My website looks messed up on different screen resolutions. How to fix that?
6. Is there a way to show new private messages in a custom block (with info and a pic of the sender)? The user will be able to press the button to answer or close the message.
7. Is it possible to show if the user is online? Example: "Online" text under their profile picture.

Thanks.

XOOPS - v. 2.5.10
PHP - v. 7.3

It's good to hear that you like XOOPS. To answer your questions:

1. Is there a module that provides gender selection?

You could modify the Profile module for that.
But how would you like to use it?

2. Birthday module?

Yes, https://github.com/XoopsModules25x/birthday

3. Will it be possible to set every gender their own default avatar?

If you would like to do it as an Admin, you could modify the Profile module for it.

4. Sometimes, when I clean the cache, it remains. Is that ok?

What do you mean by "it remains"? Which cache folder? What files? Normally it should clear the cache in /xoops_data/caches/ folders

5. My website looks messed up on different screen resolutions. How to fix that?

The Default theme is not responsive, so it might not look good in certain resolutions. You need to use a "responsive" theme, like the xswitch and xbootstrap that are provided with XOOPS

6. Is there a way to show new private messages in a custom block (with info and a pic of the sender)? The user will be able to press the button to answer or close the message.

I believe, you should be able to create such a custom block for it.

7. Is it possible to show if the user is online? Example: "Online" text under their profile picture.

We have a block "Who's Online" that show current online users. I assume that you could add such option to check in Profile if the user is online, but it would be hack, and you would have to recreate it in the next XOOPS version.

Let us know if you have any other questions.

Maybe it will meet your needs when the theme is finished soon.

Sorry, I wasn't able to log in since I got banned here (I forgot my password).
2. It's already solved.
4. That wasn't the cache problem. I've edited files in "modules" instead of "/theme/default/modules."
5. Almost fixed.
7 - I've managed to set an online text under each user.
The "Who's Online" module is a bit of a pain in the ass. I want to show one random online user. But every modification I make does nothing.

That still leaves me with 1, 3, and 6. Module builders I tried to download weren't working properly.

I don't even know if this is the correct code. I want to show the online status under the new user's nickname in the list.
<{if $users[i].onlinestatus == 1}>
<
span class="online-status">ONLINEspan>
<{/if}>

Every time to answer here, I need to reset my password. Because I can't log in with my old password, it drops me back to the homepage.

Now about the problem. I tried two module builders. One of them gave me an error about Helper.php, and the other one - "There aren't modules, pleace create one first" even when I already created one.
Pleace - please (I guess).
What about the online code? Was it correct?

Hi

I would suggest to use XOOPS 2.5.11 and min PHP 7.4
latest version of 2.5.11 you can find here: https://github.com/XOOPS/XoopsCore25

I made a lot of improvement in modulebuilder but I didn't test it with 2.5.10

maybe this can solve the problems
