Joomla 1.5 and PMS (endangered species)

Postby wwvine » Mon Jul 23, 2007 11:55 pm

Hello team. Thanks for the great new platform.

RE: PMS and Joomla 1.5 RC1

[size=100]Would it be permissible to have a sticky post on the subject of PMS here or wherever is appropriate?[/size]

The world of PMS has changed much in the first half of this year and development has ground to a halt in most camps. I spent the better part of 24 hours testing the following 4 PMS with Joomla 1.5 RC and CB 1.1beta3. They are among the few that can even still be found and have not closed shop (_____ enter reason here)

PMS is an endangered species right now in the Joomla CMS and it may take Joomla Core to bend a little and help out to bring the old dogs along to the new ranch. I hope you will help.

Thank you.

TESTED THESE FOUR PMS THOROUGHLY
  • UddeIM
  • PMS Enhanced
  • Missus
  • JIM


My experience doesn't require a template to explain the facts. After much testing I confirm that 3 of 4 do not function enough to be used at all with Joomla 1.5 RC1


UddeIM: Installs = YES (partial functionality using _mod - not enough though. com_uddeim fails to display messages)
PMS Enhanced: Installs = YES (not functional)
Missus: Installs = YES (with mod - not functional)
JIM: Installs = YES (functional but not using Quick Message TAB with CB )

You know why I didn't test Clexus.

If anyone wants to share their test experiences, thank you. I have tried these at length and ask Joomla Core for support with backward compatibility for the existing PMS components. They're all we've got and they should not vanish from the landscape of Joomla.

I am guessing give it time. The code base has just now become stable enough for some developers to even look at.
With the little coding knowledge I have I can see where developing on the new framework is going to bring a lot of new and old faces around to it.
This day it is my wish that I helped you to live

Hey I think Jim_plain without ajax may work fine in Joomla 1.5 at least in Legascy 1.0 mode.

Hi,
Since many months have lapsed since the initial post to this thread, has anything changed ?

I am developing a simple intranet. 3 features that i need are :
forum
pms
video sharing

just wondering if there is a pms and forum that work beautifully with joomla 1.5


i do not need good looking, i need reliability as I will be incapable of handling bugs galore.

PMS uddeIM 1.1 and Forum Fireboard 1.0.4 are said to run well in Legacy Mode of Joomla 1.5

To show Videos, we are using ice gallery 0.5 beta 4.2. The developper said, he has allready a native Version for Joomla 1.5 and after some more tests he will publicate it. May be in April…

I am using the latest vesion of uddeIM works great with 1.5 and looks good too worked straight out of the box.

What I would like however is a mod that will check for messages every 5 mins or so and alert you when you have a new message. There is a message mod avaiable that works great but this only refreshes on page load or page refresh I need one that will do it automatically.

Is there one out there, anybody any ideas?

Cheers
Nick
