Posted by: domeccon 2008/1/14 14:54:00 10517 reads The XOOPS China Community is pleased to announce the release of XoopsLifeType 1.0.2 RC!

XoopsLifeType is a XOOPS module integrating LifeType (http://www.lifetype.net) 1.2.5, which is an open-source blogging platform with support for multiple blogs and users in a single installation.

Download
--------------------
You can download XoopsLifeType from xoopschina@sourceforge:

Features
--------------------
1. Integrated user acount system of XOOPS and LifeType;
2. Integrated LifeType's installation system into XOOPS, so you can install/upgrade/uninstall LifeType directly in XOOPS's admin panel;
3. Added some XOOPS' blocks, such as Latest blogs and integrated XOOPS' search. (Note: we've changed LifeType's original /templates/ to /themes/, and the /templates/ contained XOOPS's templates only);
4. Added XOOPS Frameworks' CAPTCHA to anti spam-comments;
5. Supported none UTF-8 encoding, such as gb2312, big5.


TODO
--------------------
1. Moving writable folders out of lifetype (cache, tmp and gallery)

2. Ensure "ROOT/modules/lifetype/tmp/" and "ROOT/modules/lifetype/gallery/" are writable by the webserver (chmod 777);
