Re: Date language other than English

I'd love to see this option configurable in the admin and also as Dave suggested within the users profile so they can set how they want the date to appear for them personally.

I would also like to avoid what some modules do which allow the date to be set in admin, and that is to simply say to the user go to php.net and figure it out yourself.

Although it's relatively easy to figure out, our CMS targets people who sometimes don't wish to learn php, settings or variables, a cms system is to make it easier to publish information. So with that in mind an admin setting perhaps with a drop down box choosing how it should be displayed.
Or at minimum a simple explanation of the php date settings rather than saying "go figure".



Re: Fix required in css100_morpho theme

Line 24 of style.css: Comment out or remove the absolute positioning. The float: left; takes care of the positioning.

#xo-canvas-leftcolumn {float:left; /*position: absolute; left: 0; top: 100px;*/ width: 175px; }


Tested in IE6/IE7/FF2.

I hope we can get away from that overly complex theme code. Themes don't need that level of complexity.

Re: Date language other than English

I agree that the date/time format should be more easily configurable.

I think it should also be configurable by each user separately.

This may be getting off-topic, but a related issue is that the formatted date/time is constructed in a .php file, which has the side effect that cached blocks such as Recent Topics use the timezone of the last user who caused the block to get cached, rather than the timezone of the current user. It would be better for the .php file to only provide a timestamp to the template, which gets dynamically converted to a formatted date/time.



Re: ImpressCMS Theme

Yes - that's pretty much the idea (different colours per site) I believe

use the php date function etc, i'm not sure if by doing that it would make multilanguage easier in that regard.



Yes, please!



Re: Welcome Predator !

Awesome! Welcome!





Re: ImpressCMS Theme

Nice work this was really what i had in mind for xoops but now much better to use it for impressCMS :D as the question before was not answered i guess and hope the Colors will change by the different menupoints? Green i.e. for community blue for addons (just examples).

But at least big thumbs up

Re: Fix required in css100_morpho theme

Could you send me the theme or provide a URL where I can have access and I'll take a look at it?

Thanks!

Re: Welcome Predator !

I think some ideas discussed in the [[Draft Proposal Team]] (hey - we've got the wiki link - I may as well use it ) are good - and worth using elements of.

But that aside - I'm glad to see you here also.



Re: Welcome Predator !

Pred,

Nice to see you here.

I think we all have a dream here. A dream of a true Open Source project that focuses on building a solid, reliable product.

I'm glad you have decided to join us.

To those who I have forgotten to welcome previously...

Welcome!!! Sorry I forgot to say it sooner!

Re: Welcome Predator !

Thanks to both.

I had the dream with the proposal group which is discussing on my board we could bring xoops back on track, but i guess this was a dream nothing more. I believe that the work and efforts of this group (proposal group) is wasted time so i hate to waste time and i see a lot also hate it

To fork xoops was and is the last option we had and now some did it.

I welcome this as this could be a new fresh start - easier and better as a restructure of xoops which will never happen, so to fork is the only logic decision which people with responsability had made.

It is sad but i believe the name XOOPS is burned and will not resurrect, so better stop it and make a new start. So thanks who act insteed of just talk ;-D
