- TinyMCE 3.4.8
- jQuery 1.7.1
- jQueryUI 1.8.17

See the Changelog for more details.

Please remember: This is Beta Release version for features testing only!!!!

DO NOT install it on a production site and DO NOT upgrade any production site with it!!!

Please post and discuss all issues related to this release in this forum

We also need help with Translations

System requirements

Any PHP version >= 5.2 (PHP 5.3+ is strongly recommended)

MySQL server 5.0+

Web server:
Any server supporting the required PHP version (Apache highly recommended)

Downloading XOOPS

You can get this release package from the Sourceforge repository.
There are .zip and .gz archives provided.

Installing XOOPS (new installation)

1. Copy the content of the htdocs/ folder where it can be accessed by your server
2. Ensure mainfile.php and uploads/ are writable by the web server
3. For security considerations, you are encouraged to move directories "/xoops_lib" (for XOOPS libraries) and "/xoops_data" (for XOOPS data) out of Document Root, and change the folder names.
4. Make the directory xoops_data/ writable; Create (if not already present) and make the directories xoops_data/caches/, xoops_data/caches/xoops_cache/, xoops_data/caches/smarty_cache/ and xoops_data/caches/smarty_compile/ writable.
5. Access the folder where you installed the htdocs/ files using your web browser to launch the installation wizard

You can also check out the detailed Installation Guide and the Operations Guide

Installing Protector in XOOPS
We also highly recommend the installation of the PROTECTOR module which will bring additional security protection and logging capabilities to your site.

Upgrading from a previous version

Upgrading from 2.5.4 to 2.5.5 Beta:

1. Get the right update package from the sourceforge file repository
2. Overwrite files in XOOPS directory on your server with the content of /htdocs
* make sure that you copy the content of /xoops_lib to whatever directory you keep it on the server now (it should be your current XOOPS_TRUST_PATH directory), then delete the /xoops_lib directory. There can NOT be two directories with the content of /xoops_lib
3. Update the "System" module from the modules administration interface. Other modules, especially "Profile", "PM", and "Protector" are recommended to update as well

Upgrading from previous versions older than 2.5.0:

0. Verify the system requirements, in particular the version of PHP. Backup your XOOPS database and site directory. (There are several ways to do these actions, which are discussed elsewhere.) Turning your site off is optional.
Change the permissions on mainfile.php and /include/license.php to be writable, for example:
File Normal For upgrade
mainfile.php 400 700
/include/license.php 444 777
Get the correct update package from the SourceForge file repository.
1. In the upgrade package folder, move the "upgrade" folder inside the "htdocs" folder, if it's not already there. Remove the install folder from the "htdocs" folder, if it's there. Remove the mainfile.php file from the "htdocs" folder, if it's there.
If you've moved the xoops_data and xoops_lib folders outside your site's root directory, move these folders out of the "htdocs" folder in the upgrade package folder.
2. Delete the /modules/system directory on your current XOOPS site (to get rid of any old unnecessary files).
3. Overwrite the files in the XOOPS directory on your current XOOPS site with the content of "htdocs" folder of the upgrade package. (There are several ways to do this action, which are discussed elsewhere.)
As noted above, if relocated, overwrite the files in your current xoops_data and xoops_lib with the content of those in the upgrade package.
4. If you have Protector previously installed, open the "mainfile.php" file , and remove the Pre-check and Post-check lines (if they exist):
include XOOPS_TRUST_PATH.'/modules/protector/include/' ;
include XOOPS_TRUST_PATH.'/modules/protector/include/' ;
5. At your site's address (URL), login as administrator. Access /upgrade/ with a browser, and follow the instructions (and any for updating your XOOPS database). After all updates have been applied (green checkmarks), note the link in the Updater to update the "system" module, and do so.
6. Delete the "upgrade" folder from your site's "htdocs" directory.
7. Update (reload) other modules, especially "Profile", "PM", and "Protector," if necessary.
8. Change permissions on the files noted above back to their normal state.
9. Turn your site back on, if you turned it off earlier.

Debug information display level

Since XOOPS 2.3.1 debug information display level is enabled as a temporary solution for 2.3* to show debug information to different level of users: to all users, to members or to admins only.
The configuration can be set in /xoops_data/configs/xoopsconfig.php
As a default, the display level is set for 2 (Admin only).

Files integrity check

The full XOOPS package is released with a script able to check if all the system files have been correctly uploaded to the server. To use it, follow these instructions:

1. Upload the checksum.php and checksum.md5 files located in the XOOPS package root to your XOOPS server folder (putting them next to mainfile.php).
2. Execute checksum.php with your browser
3. If necessary, re-upload the missing or corrupted system files
4. Remove checksum.php and checksum.md5 from your server


This release contains only the "system-related modules". You are invited to browse the XOOPS modules repository to if you need additional functionality. Note: as a new repository is being built, the current repository is not up-to-date, PLEASE VISIT INDIVIDUAL DEVELOPERS' WEBSITES TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING LATEST VERSION OF MODULES.

Please help with testing!!!

We need to discover and fix any bugs very soon, so we can start focusing on XOOPS 2.6.0

If we don't hear about problems/bugs, we'll release RC in a week, and Final version in two weeks.

Let's make sure that there are no bugs in this version. But we can do it only with your help!

Yurdal, good to hear that extCal issues has been fixed!

In the update package there is no \modules\system\language\english\admin.php !

Because there should be only files that are new or different. If the files are identical, they are not included.

I want to use tinymce as editor for my news module.
For image upload I want use plugin xoops advanced imagemanager.
If I start xoops image manager and than xoops imagebrowser there is following error:
Warning: Class xoopsmodule not found in file /class/xoopsload.php at line 105 in file /class/xoopsload.php line 105

PS: The same error I get unter 2.5.4

Additional question:
Normally uploaded images will be saved in "uploads", but I want, that the images will be saved in case of a news article in "uploads/news".
If I change line 142 in xoopsimagebrowser.php from
$uploader = new XoopsMediaUploader(XOOPS_UPLOAD_PATH, array("image/gif",...

$uploader = new XoopsMediaUploader(XOOPS_UPLOAD_PATH."/news", array("image/gif",...

it works and the images are saved in "uploads/news".

To keep the plugin useable for all modules, I tried to use global $xoopsModule.
I replaced
$uploader = new XoopsMediaUploader(XOOPS_UPLOAD_PATH, array("image/gif",...
include_once XOOPS_ROOT_PATH."/kernel/module.php";
if (isset(
$xoopsModule)) $uploadpath XOOPS_UPLOAD_PATH."/".$xoopsModule->getVar('dirname');
// if there is no folder with name of module, used basic folder for images
if ( !file_exists($uploadpath)) $uploadpath XOOPS_UPLOAD_PATH."/images";
// if standard folder for images not exist, used basic upload directory
if ( !file_exists($uploadpath)) $uploadpath XOOPS_UPLOAD_PATH;
$uploader = new XoopsMediaUploader($uploadpath, array("image/gif",...

But now $xoopsModule->getVar('dirname') doesn't give me back the name of current module.

Can somebody tell me why?

How is the testing going? I looked at the SourceForge, and I saw that there were only 74 downloads as of today! That not that many

There more people test it now, the more solid will be the Final release! So please help us with testing of the Beta release.

And thanks to everybody who already has downloaded and is testing it! You are helping to make XOOPS 2.5.5 bug-free!

There is no weight, weight can be used in osCommerce or any other e-commerce solution, it's Position.

The whole idea with Unicode URL/non-unicode URL and rest is messy, 2.5 by default uses UTF-8, why there will be unicode/non-unicode field type ?

bg-BG translation is available from here ...

Which of those are packed and released ?
Dutch, Italian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish

Those need to be updated from 2.5.4 to 2.5.5 Beta
Croatian, Polish, Turkish, Portuguese (Brazil), Arabic, German, Greek, Taiwanese, French, Russian, Danish, Romanian, Malay, Chezch.

Edit: But I'm not sure about BMP 1 and rest, till the module naming problem is solved. Existing of 3-4 different modules under same name makes XOOPS mess. Will keep core translation up to date and all Bitcero modules for now. At least every module released by Bitcero not uses same name as XOOPS core/bmp modules names.

Hi Mamba,

Long time no see... As far as well, (I've just installed), does it looks really impressed. The reason that I've been away for a while, is at first that I've been working a little too hard in regular work. Second is that I had made an brilliant theme in 2.3, but it doesn't worked in 2.4, and I didn't like to start all over again.

So why isn't the final released yet??? And how goes it with 3.0?

I'll be back...

See you
