Re: Is XOOPS used for business applications?

There are plenty of business using PHP-Nuke, of which XOOPS is a project fork. Perhaps you should search for those. Then keep in mind that XOOPS has all the functionality of PHP-Nuke (and then some, in some manners), but a much friendly install and interface.

Re: Is XOOPS used for business applications?

This is good information and I agree 100% about ensuring an commercial work would include $'s back to the XOOPS banks.

But does no one know of real-world business (Intranet or Internet) implementations ?

I'm glad this post was made sticky - as I see it's an important discussion. I challenge the user community to come up with some good references

The latest XOOPS site, XXX Uncovered is well done, but I really can't use this to show a potential client (live or screenshots)

So ...... any takers ??

Re: Is XOOPS used for business applications?

Modules don't need to be GPL, even if someone will "try" and make a free version ...doesn't mean it'll be better, especially if its "non-gadget" oriented.

I think GPL is great, but it kills jobs, and takes ressources away from ppl that try to make a living off coding... Cause of the more general thinking: Oh the main program is GPL, so everything else should be free too.

GPL was meant to keep ppl like MS from locking down the source by making it proprietairy, not to create some new freeware trend (which it's unfortunately become).

Of course if ya like a product and they have a donation page or whatever..well contribute something to them

Re: Is XOOPS used for business applications?

you could sell content subscriptions, but not the CMS itself, plus any modules you develop need to be posted for public consumption.

say you research information on "Topic Z" you could give access to paying subscribers... they are buying the content not the CMS.

you could develop a module and try to sell it... and you may, but if it is trully usefull somebody smarter will re-engineer it and give it away.

someone may have $ but no skills or time, and pay you to develop "Module Z" to their specs. Thats fine but the module is public.

think of this as a community in which you can trade modules at no cost... but if you score some $ with your site... you should remeber the tip-jar on this site, and help the community continue.

As I understand it anyway...

Re: Is XOOPS used for business applications?

Thank you for the answer. Can you clarify the 'cms'?

Re: Is XOOPS used for business applications?

Re: Is XOOPS used for business applications?

I'm just asking, not flamming, but can you charge for xoops, meaning sell it to someone (installed)?

Xoops Hosting Forum Launched

Hey All,

In a purely self interested move, I just created a new forum called XOOPS Hosting. Now that you all have your XOOPS Sites, the next obvious step is to find a good, reliable host provider to showcase your work.

This forum is for folks to make Host recommendations, request hosting services, tell us your stories, etc....

And I say I created this forum partly out of self-interest, because hey, I need a more reliable host provider myself, so any recommendations will be much appreciated.
