News 1.63 : A module for creating articles in Xoops

Posted by instantzero on 2008/12/3 13:00:00 (12161 reads) | Posted on Modules
Resized Image

Instant Zero is very happy to present you a new version of the Xoops News module.
This new version, 1.63, introduces some bugs corrections and introduces a new functionality, Tags

Where to download the module ?
The module can be found in its homepage: ... ory/product.php?prod_id=1

How to upgrade ?
Be sure to update the files on your server with the new one and update the module in the Xoops modules manager.
after this, YOU MUST go in the module's preferences, at least one time, to re validate them.

Some modifications were made to the translations.
Consult the lang.diff file.

Note about the tags
- The use of tags and the generation of tags cloud are linked to the use (and of the installation) of the "Tag" module created by phppp.
So you must download and install this module before to be able to use tags in the News module:
For Xoops 2.3.x :
For Xoops 2.0.x :

Best regards,
Instant Zero

- The Xoops 2.3 editors are fully supported (tested with Xoops 2.3.2a)
However a bug was found with the tinyMce editor.
The bug seems to come from Xoops itself
- The support for the Spaw editor is abandoned
- The support of Xoops 2.2.x is abandoned
- You can use tinymce if you are running Xoops 2.3
- TCPDF was updated
- Changes in translations (see lang.diff)
- Correction of a bug in the "By Topic" presentation of the articles (on index.php)

Love the tag function in News!

Currently I am using a "+" for two words tag and it shows at the front end, is there a way for two words tag without the "+" sign showing at the front end?

- The support of XOOPS 2.2.x is abandoned

This is sad!
The current 2.3.2b is not yet a full replacement for the 2.2.x series of XOOPS.

Is the TAG module a prerequisite or can the News module function without?

i haven't tested this version yet, but with the previous one if i create a group that can't modify news, it CAN otherwise delete news! this is nonsense, or a bug....

Thank you very much!

All my sites upgraded without problems... The included tag feature is great!

As far as I know, it can function without it. The Tag feature kicks in only, if Tag is available.

I have two problems on two different installations that I can't figure.

1. UTF-8 in PDF Creation does not work. Eg. Italian àèìòù chars work fine in Printer Friendly Page but Create Pdf from the article results in àèìòù.

2. xLanguage as above. Plus PDF creation only works if English is selected àèìòù as above though.
When Italian is selected and PDF icon clicked I get this error:

TCPDF error: Some data has already been output, can't send PDF file

Help please!!!

It should work. Check if the code is not inside an if statement. Place it above
include_once XOOPS_ROOT_PATH.'/include/comment_view.php';

just to be sure.
