Hello community,
I am new to the XOOPS family. Can you tell me the advantages of XOOPS over other CMS like typo3 or joomla?

What about handling, installing, usability and search engine friendlyness?

I look forward to your answers.
Thomas

Simple, robust and easy to customise. Not as pretty as Joomla, but getting there.

Take you time choosing though, as it is an important decision and one that is different for each user depending on their technical aptitude and what they are wanting to achieve. The last thing you want is to chose your CMS only to find 6 month down the line after you've put in hundreds of hours into content creation that it isn't going to be able to do everything you want.

I used to solely use Xoops, but now I primarily use Drupal. My reasons for switching were more technical (including SEO) than usability, but that was my choice and everyones will be different. Have a read of this article I wrote on why I switched from XOOPS to Drupal. No CMS is perfect, so it is a matter of finding the one that suits your needs now and making a best guess on which CMS is going to evolve in a way that suits you.

Xoops = Developers play ground...to make modules in XOOPS is easier then most systems.

With CBB/Newbb XOOPS has its own forum system


With allot other CMS systems, there is a work flow you have to keep to put content on the page and in my opinion and others, it is far easier to add a module and then have the content you want straight away; then to have to spend ages trying to install bits and then also follow this strange admin work flow that some systems use.

One thing about XOOPS I like is its caching system - other CMS may have it, but it's a system wide cache, it's either on or off and you may not be able to set the cache time.

XOOPS's on the other hand can be set on a per module basis, with a wide range of times.

That's an impossible question. It all depends on what you want to do. :)

I find that for blogging, XOOPS is unmatched in that you can run a dual system with XOOPS functionality, and witth Wordpress for blogging.

If I want a prettier system, I use Joomla.
