  1. UNIVERSAL XOOPSID

It is very tedious to use different IDs for logins.
Xoops offers a system to have a login feature and then
use uname & real name.

Hence if there is a central system like drupal has,
then it would reduce headaches to remember the passwords.

There is a system in Drupal like following:

  1. Pluggable Authentication Service

I find the system of Roles, groups, authentication, and
user data are of Plone as excellent. The charm is that
the Roles and Groups could be used and applied to Xoops
as it already has those features in a similar manner.

  1. User Field Public Private switch

It would be necessary to have a small switch in the
dynamic Profiles ti introduce a User switch of all or
any chosen field to allow a user to display at his
choice A FIELD to be displayed to public or to a chosen
Group.

  1. Dynamic Profiles

We beleive, that by offering a possibility of User
Management Modfule to 2.0.15 in an update of 2.3, this
will help a lot of users. One may not have all the
features of 2.2 but gets a stable core, better than 2.2.

Simply due to dynamic user profiles, we were subjected
to updating the core to 2.2 and hence the request in
the name of others.
