Re: Date language other than English

Maybe a short followup post, and explain my motivation.

Their are two types of importent data, one the content, second the date. All websites powered by xoops in languages other then English are forced to use numeric date notations (eg 12-02-2007), while notitions with real day and month conversions would aprove the users experience (seeing wednesday instead of only 12). It's hard for me to explain it in English, let me know if my issue isn't clear enough.^^

Date language other than English

In 2006 I reported a bug in Xoops that there is a real problem in date notations in languages other then English. The bug was confirmed by Marcan and Mith, but Skalpa never had the time to review/solve the problem.

Short explenation:

When dates are called like: Wednesday 12th of May, you can't let Xoops translate it into Dutch for example (it would be displayed/renamed to "woensdag 12 mei"). We have tested it with other languages/server configurations etc, but it seemed the main problem lies in the Xoops core.

Re: Not commiting my own mainfile - Please help me !!!

Oh I understand now steve. Yes this could work.

Anyway, again :

Re: Keeping the changelog

I rather like how Nekro arranged them - separating fixes, etc - so it is easier to read.



Keeping the changelog

We've already had some collisions on committing changes and the changelog is suffering the most. We need some sort of agreement on how to handle this so we keep this from getting too crazy.

Re: Not commiting my own mainfile - Please help me !!!

marcan - I only export to another directory when I start, not for every edit. I make changes and test in my copy and when I am satisfied, I make the changes to the sandbox copy and commit.

Leaving the mainfile out of the distribution is OK with me, as long as the installation processes still work.

Re: Not commiting my own mainfile - Please help me !!!

Just have to try and remember ... just like I need to remember to comment any changes

I have only worked with SVN/CVS a little, so I export a copy of my sandbox to my local server for testing. When I'm happy with it, I merge the changes into my sandbox copy, then commit to the repository.


I personally cannot work like that as I usually practically test my changes after each line... So I would not export it every time.

So creating mainfile at installation can be an idea. But the permissions are an issue I think...

That kind of approach is rather commonplace among my systems and the directory would have to be writable anyways in order to write to cache and templates_c.

Not including mainfile.php and generating it during install sounds pretty logical.

Re: Not commiting my own mainfile - Please help me !!!

Maybe Steve's method is the only way of doing it. That's my method too. It also solves the issue of temporary changes for testing and debugging.

I'm just being paranoid. More than anything, I'm too lazy to learn yet another chat system.

Well Jmorris, I can tell you this, it's more safer to close your port 80 and just stick to the irc protocol^^



Re: Plugable Ad Mangement

Excellent James,

Try to bring him to work with us to include this in ImpressCMS.

Plugable Ad Mangement

I know this is a bit premature, but I'll mention it anyways because I'm currently working on it.

I'm working with the developer of http://www.oiopublisher.com/ on squashing any bugs and improving the XHTML rendering of the system. It's a very promising ad management system that supports the following ad formats:

* Banners/Buttons
* Global/Per Post Text Links
* Paid Posts
* Custom Ad Services
* Modular backend with "Conversation" module
* Google compliant with a nofollow option

Simon (the Dev) is very much interested in opening the development and extending the application to other platforms. He has some excellent concepts lined up for the application and I think it would be an ideal candidate to replace the outdated banner manager in the core as a "modular" replacement.

I'll have more information on this soon. For now, we're working on the latest release which will include a "conversation" module for social blogging.
