Posted by: intel352on 2004/12/5 12:13:42 14056 reads
Today marks the release of xphpBBi v0.8. Much work has been done with fixing bugs found in the module. The install process works properly now, the default phpBB template has been modified slightly to function a bit better within xoops. Also, the Who's Online module code has been adapted to properly highlight Admins, Moderators, and to show updated information on each page.

This release stayed mainly focused on making the module more stable and usable.

Known issues:
- Upgrading from version 0.7 is not supported. I don't believe there were any sql changes between releases, but it would be best to install from scratch. Future releases will support upgrading.
- Administration system breaks out of the 2-pane view when you navigate away from the index admin page (this issue only appears to happen in certain browsers)
- User signatures do not display tags properly, if the signature was created in the Xoops profile page. This will be fixed.

FOR THE DEFAULT PHPBB THEME TO WORK PROPERLY, YOU MUST MAKE SURE YOUR XOOPS THEME HEADER HAS THE FOLLOWING:
Quote:
<!-- RMV: added module header -->
<{$xoops_module_header}>


The above line will allow xphpbbi to include the phpbb template's CSS into the Xoops header. If this line does not exist, the module will not display properly.

-------------------------------------------------------------
DUE TO THIS RELEASE BEING CONCENTRATED MORE ON BUGFIXING, A FEW GOALS HAD TO BE IGNORED. THESE GOALS STILL EXIST.

Future Releases:
- Focus on transforming the phpBB administration system into a typical XOOPS administrative environment.
- The template/theme system will be modified to work *better* within xoops. (To allow the module to display it's own phpbb templates without the phpbb css file taking over the xoops theme appearance as well)

-------------------------------------------------------------
NOTE: THIS IS A BETA RELEASE, USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. THIS MODULE SHOULD (theoretically) FUNCTION ALONGSIDE 'pbboard' FROM BBPIXEL WITH NO PROBLEM.
-------------------------------------------------------------
The purpose of this project, is to create a port of the phpBB module that works *without* and Core Xoops file hacks or modifications. The *only* area of xoops core that is now affected by this module, is a new member is added to the user database (Anonymous, uid=0).
