I've written part 2 of my tutorial on how to build a XOOPS module.
Part 2 teaches how to add smarty templates in XOOPS modules and how to sanitize info before accessing the DB.
You can find it here:

Might want to add something about sanitizing the output, too.

SQL injections are not the only danger for a module.

Don't suppose you would like to paste a copy to the docs site? If you login at doc site and post a 'where can I put this'in the forums you will get directions to a place in the workspace.

Mithrandir: Should all the output be sanitized also? I'm not sure I understand how the output could be vulnerable.
Jenclass: I've posted a message on docs.

Try to enter this:

<SCRIPT>alert('XSS')</SCRIPT>

Many thx kaotik. This is a great intro to getting PHP and Smarty templates working together in Xoops. After three days of experimenting I found your tutorial and finally managed to get something to appear on screen!

I'm sure many people will be familiar with the joy of that moment!
