I must say that lack of this simple and necessary function is a most disappointing aspect of XOOPS. I am trying XOOPS out as an alternative to creating a site from scratch, which is my usual approach. I did not expect to spend an hour or so looking for a function that apparently does not exist.

Having to alter files and substitute images using anything but the administrative interface seems to me to be entirely counter to the idea of a CMS. To me a CMS should never require programming skills and a reasonably intelligent person should accomplish all tasks from a dashboard.

Changing the header is the most basic and one of the first things anyone would want to do. Meeting with frustration at this point is enough to make many throw up their hands. I personally am shocked and wonder if XOOPs is worth the trouble.

I am quite experienced, yet find this CMS a huge hassle, especially after finding that a recent upgrade destroyed my previous work. (I had installed XOOPs using Fantastico as a trial some time back and found it needed updating when I got around to it again, so went ahead and ran the upgrade).

So far, I have spent many hours on this thing and am not finding it very intuitive. The new admin skin is better, but the admin interface needs more features and better understandability. Basic functions like site logos, etc. need to be common to all themes and available from the admin so that this, one of the first things anyone wants to do -- put one's own name and logo on the site -- is simple and obvious.

Otherwise, this is CMS just a toy for geeks.
