Re: 2009 XOOPS Website Redesign

Do you have a listing of the modules and the version you are currently using?

Re: 2009 XOOPS Website Redesign

The French XOOPS team have a good list here.

Re: 2009 XOOPS Website Redesign

Here's a nice example of how I think a top page could look (though I'd change the color scheme to something less dark)

Re: 2009 XOOPS Website Redesign

Can the site be made to show replies to our posts when we click on our name?

Currently we get a list of all the posts we have made.

However, we do not get an indication if there are any replies by that method.

Re: 2009 XOOPS Website Redesign

Guys at THIS LINK
I show my Idea for new xoops.org design.


In my opinion, it is important to give a new look at xoops.org (in addition to reorganize the contents of course) to encourage new users. Honestly I think that the site should be a concentrate of all what XOOPS can do, to offer to those who has never used a comprehensive view of what is XOOPS.

Talking with some colleagues I realized that at the same benefits (even I do not know well) Joomla has more users because it is immediately appealing. What's more, there was certainly a marketing study that has driven joomla more about than other even better CMS.

I am fond of XOOPS and not changing my cms, and are willing to give my contribution (for graphics) if you like.

Why the rush? Let's have a good discussion, let's see other ideas, other designs, and then let's make it happen. There is more to it than just the design. We need to think about splitting the Website into subdomains, such as modules, themes, community/support, possibly demo, etc.

I like the design, but let's hear from other people.

One thing for sure - we need a horizontal menu on top

Personally I would like to see a "slide show" on top as well, showing the best of XOOPS features. I recall that Trabis was working on it.

But let's focus on the structure first.

On the other hand, I think that the wiki is integrated in that of Documentation, therefore:
A) XOOPS (http://www.xoops.org)
B) support (http://support.xoops.org)
C) topics (http://themes.xoops.org)
D) Modules (http://addons.xoops.org)
E) Development (http://dev.xoops.org)
F) Documentation (http://docs.xoops.org) with Wiki (sub-site of documentation)

Concerning the designs, it is necessary to know that the contents (and thus modules used) can be different between the sites, for example xoops.org, theme.xoops.org, addons.xoops.org (or modules.xoops.org) and docs.xoops.org will not have members if it is not the team of the site.
There will be a forum only on support.xoops.org, perhaps on dev.xoops.org.
Certain sites do not need the columns (or right one on certain pages), etc…
