I would sure like to see a weather block - I've seen it on other sites, just not seen a shared module offered up yet...maybe I missed it.
[8wayRun.Com] XenPorta (Portal) v1.2.4 CHANGELOG
- Default values and descriptions are no longer required for module settings.
- Added support for a "textarea" format of module settings. Use this as you will.
- Added a GOOGLE ADSENSE module block!
- Layout of the recent news module has been fixed.
The new datawriters for this mod permit blank setting_value fields... you should ALWAYS upload the new files before you run the upgrade script.Hello Jaxel. If i try to import the Adsense Module i do get this error
Please enter a value for the required field 'setting_value'.
X exports the XML, O clears the cache.I see a 'X' and a 'O' in layout area for each module.. how to use?
please elaborate upon the 'textarea' format and where to find.
X exports the XML, O clears the cache.
"textarea" is in the format setting of the module xml file. If a setting is set as textarea, it will show a text area.
You can do whatever you want... thats the whole point. However, settings have a 255 character limit.So we are talking about XML file edits .. can we ADD an additional setting to provide text area or do we edit existing settings?
have an example?
This would definately be doable, and very easy... as long as I only permit the promoting of THREADS (not posts). Would this be good enough for you?I've been thinking about this quite a bit. One of the things I like in IPS and in xfrocks wordpress proxy mod is the ability to promote a forum post to an article. But to keep it fully integrated, the article needs to use the Forum as the discussion engine (comments and forums posts linked together and mirroring each other), otherwise you fragment the discussion about the article.
This is a different option.
Jaxel, what do you think is the feasibility of being able to flag posts in the forum to be displayed in XenPorta instead of only having it only pull from a specified forum? That could turn it into something a bit more like a CMS, with the actual content and discussion all being in the forum. Esp if there was a way to show a "Categories" based archive that would bring up lists of past "Articles". Basically it would show the forum names for forums that posts have been promoted from, and clicking on the "Category" name would bring up the list of those "Articles".
I know this is quite a bit more complex than the existing system, but it would greatly extend the system's usefulness, making it a viable substitute for a CMS like Wordpress or Joomla. And ALL the content would be in the XF forum system... :drool:
Would this still work like this
portal = domain.com/
If forums are forums.domain.com/
media = media.domain.com/
thats the only 3 i use from you
think this can be done?
It would also reduce a lot of the complexity if we handled the homepage this way rather than using wordpress.
