Eh, well, earthlings... I'm not THAT ugly!

But surely there are plenty of humans that have a paranoic fear of getting abducted. ...or as what that matters, that debate should take more intuitive and self analytic ways.

Back in my backstreet, sorry... galaxy... all beings are well aware of the fact that reaching all kind of goals or foreign stars starts with a well understanding of the actual position to start from. Or as our old saying:
" - Know your toolbox before using the hammer to bash nuts and bolts."

Actually I have already installed XOOPS and now try to get some intuition around the basic facts on how to use it smart. Hope to prevent at least some trail and error.

I was thinking

Perhaps one should think backwords on this and describe the four (4) topics pages as each being it's own blog?

...and instead putting a copy of each blogs new postings on the start page. That basicly becomes the same thing but the system-thinking gets another perspective.

Is it any part that the News module for sure will not be able to manage for me? I see that the AMS module is a rewritten "News". Is AMS much more complicated?

------
Is there any basic /important difference between an # article # news OR # blog -system?

Hi again Xoop'ertroupers!


Quote:
What I like about XOOPS is the healthy balance of power/features and ease of use. The upcoming release 3.0 will take it to the next level.


I have understould /heard that XOOPS is one of the CMS's that makes it really easy to customize websites from scratch. With standard CSS (stylesheets), HTML (that everybody knows) and easy to use CMS-coding to implement into XOOPS (its far more intuitive then cms's like Drupal, Bitweaver, Joomla, e107 and SPIP). Is that so?

Wishlist for startpage - What modules?


On my website i plan to have a structure like this.

0. Principal. There are 4 main topics. Each having it's own Topic page.

1. All published "blogg/newstext/article" (all topics) goes first to startpage in full.

2. After X days article move from startpage => two (2) places. 2.1 the article in full length should go to the "dedicated topic-page" AND 2.2 a shortened version should go to a side-column in the start page as (clasified?) "reacent article".

3. After another time Y the article (2.1 AND 2.2) goes to a threaded or boxed "all topics archive".

Which module can make this happen? (with the smallest effort?).

Is there a rating system module to go along with this?

What are XOOPS strongest sides compared to other CMS's? Which attributes do you like the most?

Why do you think more people should find and embrace Xoops?

-----------
Note that defining a software like XOOPS also helps to take most advantage of it or even finding it. Others opinions on strong features may also encourage users to take new approaches and use XOOPS to better or more nice looking websites.

[size=x-small]Could pls a moderator /administrator move this to:
"XOOPS general usage questions".

Sorry for this mishap...[/size]

Thanks! Now I looked around and found this:
https://xoops.org/modules/smartfaq/faq.php?faqid=575

...but still there is some ambiguity about templates /CSS.

1) Does XOOPS use standard CSS (in layout templates) or is it special Xoops-stylesheets?

2) What code are allowed into the XOOPS templates? Standard CSS? (X)HTML? Other?

3) What is XOOPS template-file extension? CSS? HTML?

Thanks!

Step by step: From own template

I have searched on tutors and templates but cant find the answers to this, although I realise that I cannot be the first...

I have my own template in XHTML and stdCSS. Which are the basic steps to implement that into a XOOPS website?

Perhaps a link?


Perhaps many can bennefit from your anwser, Thanks!
