Of course, more testing will be required, so please help us with that!

Upcoming PHP 7.3 will be up to 25% faster than 7.0

Policy: Offline Browsers / Website Copiers

Webmaster
Webmaster


There have been a recent rash of users attempting to make offline copies of www.xoops.org and wiki.xoops.org.

Our policy: Don't.

Many offline copiers are setup to make many simultaneous requests to a website to improve copying performance. A busy website like XOOPS.org gets a lot of traffic (averages 3.5 GB transfered daily), and these offline copiers can easily eat up connections meant for normal users. If we catch a website copier, their address will be banned at the firewall.

First offense - a 1 hour temp ban
Second offense - a 1 day temp ban
Third offense - a permanent ban

Polish your theme CSS files

Hilight current module in main page nav-bar
#7
Webmaster
Webmaster


I am trying to implement the nav-bar so that it knows what module is on and highlight it. I figured out that the best place to start was in system_block_mainmenu.html since it seem to do it well for the “Main Menu” block.

When I click on the forum (NewBB) all the button in the nav-bar get highlighted (including home). It is only when I clik on Home that only Home is highlighted. Any idea what is the issue?
