Partial Basic Module Pack for XOOPS 2.5.5 (updated Final releases)

I've made some progress over the last few days with finalizing some of the modules, and we're slowly getting closer to our Basic Module Pack.

Together with some of the modules released earlier, here are the current Final Releases from Basic Module Pack:

Backup 3.3 Final
A module to allow you to easily backup and/or restore your MySQL database.

Features:
=============
1 backup XOOPS data and store in three ways: on the server, download immediately(admin only) or sent by email(URL or attachments)
2 tables can be select to be exported separately. useful for large tables
3 file number stored on local server can be configured
4 backup can be made by admin or via cronjob
5 restore XOOPS data from db files exported the module or by any db management script like phpmyadmin
6 capable for large file import by multiple sessions
7 restore can be done by non-webmaster, useful for XOOPS user related date restore.
8 timeout issues have been efficiently solved

Birthday 2.3 Final
Birthday is a module to keep track of your members' Birthdays.
It can be also used to remember fallen soldiers, by showing the date of their passing. You can use a WYSIWYG editor to make it even more attractive

Boox 1.71 Final
Boox (Blocks Out Of Xoops) is a module which is to help you to manage content that Xoops can't access but which is part of your site.

Typically, this content is created on the form of blocks which are not parts of a Xoops module and that's also a content which is, in general, placed in the theme. With the module, you can create as many "virtual blocks" as you want, they are saved in files (the module does not use database) and you just need to call them in your theme with one line of code.

Defacer 1.11 Final
Defacer is a new revolutionary XOOPS module that allows you to change themes, metadata and permissions for any given page on the XOOPS-based Website, thus giving you a level of control and customization not seen before.
It also comes with jgrowl redirection system and the ability of using blocks anywhere in your theme and templates

With this Xoops module, you can:
change themes, metadata and permissions for any given page.
enable jgrowl redirection system
use blocks anywhere

Texts can scroll horizontally (from right to left or left to right) and vertically (from top to bottom and bottom to top). You can also set the loop, i.e. how many times should the marquee loop (from 1 to 100 times, and infinity). You can use a WYSIWYG editor to make your marquees even more attractive

Mastop Go2 1.02 Final

Even being simple, Mastop Go2 module came to meet the basic needs for any Xoops site: Let the site more beautiful and speed up the publication of any information, may it be written or graphical.

SmartFAQ 1.10 Final

Soapbox 1.6 Final
This little module has a single purpose: to help you build in your site an editorial column section, where you can manage the columns and articles published in an ordered fashion.
It uses Smarty templates, can take comments, it's fully searchable, includes notification options, and lets users rate the articles as well as send private messages to the authors. Also, you can decide which groups of users see what specific columns.

TDMDownloads 1.62 Final
Creates a downloads section where users can download/submit/rate various files. It uses XOOPS permission and group management, thus allowing a great flexibility in use.

Wf-Downloads 3.21 Final
WF-Downloads is a download module for XOOPS. You can create a download section with multiple categories and sub-categories. You decide which groups are allowed to upload which type of files separately.

Wf-links 1.09 Final
WF-Links is a module for XOOPS that helps you to create a link section with multiple categories and sub-categories.

There will be more modules coming soon, as the goal is to finish the Basic Module Pack by end of the year, so we can focus on converting all these modules to XOOPS 2.6.0

All these modules have been tested on PHP 5.4.8, so they should be running just fine on existing XOOPS 2.5.5 and PHP 5.2+ installations.

If find any bugs, please let us know.

We would also appreciate all help with finalizing other modules, and with writing documentation or creating video tutorials, and help with Translations.

Re: Partial Basic Module Pack for XOOPS 2.5.5 (updated Final releases)

Congratulations on a fine job! Kudos to Mamba and all others on the Xoops team working on the Blue move initiative!

Is it at all possible to work on ExtCal next?

Last month I reported a problem with the PDF (and other) attachments to ExtCal posts in the following thread:

https://xoops.org/modules/newbb/viewto ... &order=ASC&status=&mode=0

IMHO, a great content management system needs a great news module, and a great calendar...

Is there any way to make ExtCal a priority?

Several of my clients need this ability to keep the members of their respective organizations informed of events without having me hardcode the links into the posts after the initial posting.

Again, I am a big Xoops fan, and just wish I had the talent in programming that Mamba and the rest of you on this board have.

Note, I am an intellectual property lawyer who specialized in cyberlaw, copyright, trademark , and litigation. I would be delighted to help Xoops in my area of expertise.

Thanks for giving this post your attention in advance.

Best wishes.

I'll look into extCal, but it's a quite complex "animal", way above my skills level, so it might take a while before I get my arms around it.

In the meantime, please report any bugs that you might find there, so we can fix them.

Excellent! We always can benefit from it, so thank you very much for the offer!

Re: Partial Basic Module Pack for XOOPS 2.5.5 (updated Final releases)

very good job Mamba. I am specially glad to see wf-downloads and smartfaq in the list.

I also think we missed 3 modules:

- calendar module: extcal is very old. unfortunately it seems no modules still can compete extcal and nobody can debug or rewrite extcal too. so it is a big issue!

- content module: publisher deserved to be in the list.

- forum module: my newbb is the first stable newbb version now. i had a wish for a long time to see a stable version of newbb and IMO it is done now. the issue is my bug fixes need to be considered by other developers like the main developer "Alfred".

Re: Partial Basic Module Pack for XOOPS 2.5.5 (updated Final releases)

Irmtfan, this is only a "partial" list - there are more modules coming, including Publisher (Trabis is working on it), extCal, and NewBB (I have problems contacting Alfred, but one way or the other, NewBB will be part of it as well).

Some other modules that most probably will be included:

- Jobs
- ModuleInstaller
- MyGuestbook
- MyLinks (from Zyspec)
- News
- Oledrion
- Portfolio
- one of the Reviews modules
- one of the Quiz modules (probably the one from mojtabajml)
- SmallWorld
- SmartPartner
- Subscribers
- TDMStats
- TDMPicture
- xContent
- xDonations
- xForms (or eForms)
- XoopsFAQ
- XoopsPartners
- xTransAM

and few others.

So there is still a LOT of work, and I hope, we'll get some people willing to help us with it! Please DO!!!!

As we always say here: you do NOT have to be a programmer. You can help with:

- testing,
- writing a documentation
- making a video tutorial
- Or you can "sponsor" a module with a financial contribution!

There are a LOT of ways to help!

But one thing is clear: WE NEED HELP FROM THE COMMUNITY!

Re: Partial Basic Module Pack for XOOPS 2.5.5 (updated Final releases)

I've updated following modules to Final versions:

Module to send a message to the Webmaster. The new thing is that in addition to Email, the messages to Webmaster will be also stored in a DB (thanks to Voltan)

Tag 2.31
The tag module is designed for site-wide tag management, handling tag input, display and stats for each module that enables tag plugin.
This module provides a centralized toolkit including input, display, stats and substantial more comprehensive applications, so that each module does not need to develop its own tag handling scripts.

Waiting 0.96
This module offers you an extensible waiting contents block into your XOOPS.
By installing this module and adding proper plug-ins only, you as webmaster can confirm any approval waitings of any modules at one view.

xLanguage 3.04
An eXtensible Multi-language content and character encoding Management plugin, Multilanguage management handles displaying contents in different languages, like English, French and Chinese. If you want to switch between languages, this module is for you.

XoopsHeadline 1.10
The XoopsHeadlines module is used to display RSS feeds on your website. It is typically used to aggregate news feeds into a single location on your website. The headlines can be shown in the XoopsHeadlines module or in a block on your site.

XoopsPoll 1.33
The XoopsPolls module can be used to display interactive survey forms on your site. Each poll can display a question on which visitors can ‘vote’. This can be a valuable way to collect feedback from your community. Polls can be configured to allow single or multiple choices and visitors can view the ‘results’ to date.

XoopsTube 1.06 beta 1
With the module XoopsTube you can add and categorize movies from sites like YouTube, DailyMotion, LiveLeak, etc. to your website.

xSiteMap 1.52
The xSiteMap module automatically creates sitemap of your Website for you and your visitors.

xForms 1.21 Final
xForms is a module for XOOPS offers widely customizable contact forms. xForms generates different kind of form elements e.g. text areas, check boxes for webmasters to create their "Contact Us" forms by desire. Submitted information can be sent by email or through the private message system of XOOPS, and received by selected user group.

Please note: it seems like several of the modules are still as "Pending" on SourceForge. But you can check them out directly from our SVN on SourceForge using something like TortoiseSVN. You can checkout all XOOPS modules from using this link:
