NOTE: jOpenSim does NOT install OpenSim, so OpenSim must be already installed for this extension to work.
The component is developed and designed with opensimulator v 0.7.5 running in grid and standalone mode with MySQL as storage engine. See the readme.pdf for further details.
With this component you can:
* maintain the login page for viewers
* enable registered joomla accounts to create an account for the sim
* control last names of OpenSim user registration in a deny/allow list
* manually create and delete user accounts for the sim
* manually set relations between joomla user and opensim user
* define the default home for new registered users
* define a Joomla article as welcome message for new registered users
* send messages to the sim
* display a map of the entire grid (NEW: map images will be cached)
* offline messages including forwarding to an email account
* inworld profiles
* inworld groups
* user can manage the inworld account via frontend
* search inworld
* create events
* edit user (grid)login levels
* let users choose a custom avatar during registration
I have changed the text in JED already, hoping this makes it a bit clearer. The readme of the next version will contain this information also a bit more conspicuous.
In grid mode it somewhat works, but standalone it doesn't. In grid mode the sync between user db's isn't working in firefox on linux. This doesn't work on standalone either.
I do think that the focus should be on standalone first however as most are on localhost working on the software with a grid mode not being the stronger necessity until it works proper in standalone.
The other suggestions would be to verify that the syncing etc.. is working on both windows and linux.
I hope you continue with this as there are more than a few that would love to have this working.
I did talk before hand with some running OpenSim and almost all had gridmode running. So I focused first this version. But I agree and dont worry, I'll have a look to standalone as soon as possible :)
I'm more worried about the message not working on FF on linux. All my linux's are server and dont even have a graphical desktop installed, so I can not reproduce this issue.
If you're interested, I invite you to my forum at http://www.foto50.com/forum to post more information about it (maybe with some screenshots) so I can have a closer look.
On desktop, I'm a windows user (yes ... guilty) but I definately do not want to neglect linux desktops!
