Hello.

I have a XOOPS site, and I want to be able to show module content on another web page, but *only* the module content, without all the surrounding blocks, headers and footers I have on my main site.

¿Can it be done with Xoops? I'm a programmer, so I can hack the code if necesary, but since I don't know the XOOPS internals, I need some advice.

Thanks in advance.

Perhaps you could do a flat, blockless theme, and force XOOPS to use it when called from the other site.

No other solution?

Is there any other way to obtain only the content page of a module? For example, in the news module I want to obtain only the content of one of the news, so that I can put some of them in some DHTML tabbed pane.

Could you not consider an RSS feed?

The feed for news can be located at www.yoursite.com/backend.php

Many other modules also support RSS.

This would in my eyes be the easiest without hacking anything.

The only way you will be able to do what you want is to make a call to the database and get the information that way.

could a script be written to strip all unwanted data? This is a pretty widely requested feature.... I too would like to be able to call module output individually without the header/footer/blockloops.

I've been looking into XOOPS themes and how the pages are constructed. All content is into a div section called 'conten'. When you call a XOOPS page you call a php file that returns the page with all the sections. I think that maybe is possible to write a function that wraps a call to that module's php file, catchs the html output, and strips all but this div section. This will not be very efficient, because XOOPS constructs all the blocks for nothing, as the function discards them later, but it may work. I'll try to do it. Do you know of some php function/library that lets me parse an html file easily? to do the div section extraction.
