@phpbb: What means an Xaraya Expert, is there a XOOPS expert exept this dev. team ...
Mainly Xaraya ML gives advantages to the webmasters:
- as I can see from the 5 months testing it, Xaraya doesnt have option in the news for example, which language have to be Shown, and in the same time, dont work as Marcan SL. Simply when the articles in written in BG-UTF-8 it shows only when Bulgarian is selected Xaraya ML works better and in the same time like NukeML (only for the news).
- Xaraya ML is an easier to the users (probably and developers), cos everyone piece of Xaraya uses unicode, that means two points:
1. Point one, Japanese are able to write on an English oriented sites.
2. Point number two, (let's found the right words) - on some modules here in XOOPS, when languages missing, strange kind of names comes out - MD_ADM_SOMETHING, in Xaraya if language not have translation to Bulgarian for example, it displays the default site language.
XarML and XOOPS SL languages tree, looks almost similar, like core language file in XOOPS /language/english.php and in xaraya /var/locale/english/php ./xml exept charsets.
Nuke, PostNuke, MD-Pro, Envolution, Ciamos, and the ugly e107 pretends to be true multi language content managment, but the situation is:
e107 - Looks like first alfa of Marc Andre Smart Language, only switching UI
Ciamos - Have it, but no one kwows what and how works, so leave it
Nuke, PostNuke, MD-Pro and Envolution LFS 1.2.5 (currently dead project) - have ML only for one thing Interface (building tons of blocks for each language) and for the second news, that's not Multi Language site.
XarML works for every point of it, even and themes.
Drupal tries to make ML like XarML, unfortunately, this mess with GNU Gettext is a very bad idea for CMS, Drupal is loosing of time for me, so cant give u a detailed explanation how this ML is re exported in Drupal.
Now what I can done to help dev. team to make ML the same like this one in Xaraya, of course saving backward compatibilities with all modules (themes are not important, all published here are the same, left sided, right sided or like this site).
Xaraya is an easy example to understand what means eXtensible, but no one ask me for that....
But in the same time, Xaraya is a pig, XOOPS is a rocket.
So if I can help with something, feel free to contact me.
