ModuleInstaller 1.0 Final released

Testing the XOOPS 2.5.6 Basic Module Pack - Beta 1 can be sometimes frustrating, if you have to install and uninstall the modules again and again, and you have to do it individually one by one.

Normally the option to select bunch of modules and install/unistall them at once should be a standard feature, but because we are not adding new features to XOOPS Core, I've decided to create a module that would do it for me.

Fortunately, we already have the feature in the XOOPS Installer when we're installing XOOPS for the first time. During the installation process XOOPS presents you with PM, Profile, and Protector modules, and you can choose which ones, if any, you want to install.

So I took the code from there and have made a module out of it: ModuleInstaller.

And I've added "Unistall" feature as well, where you can select several modules and uninstall them at once:

You can download the module from XOOPS File Repository

This module will become part of each of the Module Packs, to make installation easier.

Please help us with testing of the XOOPS 2.5.6 Basic Module Pack

Today we ( release a beta version of the CuErPa module for XOOPS. This module allows the creation of Custom Error Pages for within your website.

QRCode module for XOOPS v1.1

After reading through some of the posts we've decided to update the QRCode module for XOOPS 2.5.x
The main reason is the fact that the replacement module that came to be didn't work for us after we installed it.
Resized Image
We've added/changed :
- a block to the module that shows the current url of the page as a QRCode with an option to set the size of the image.
- All Qrcodes are made locally, no external script is called
- Module is now cloneable

The QRCode module was first created so other developers could make check if it is installed and the utilize QRCode creation. We then updated it so QRCodes could also be manually created.
Currently the module creates the following QRCode :

- Visit a website
- Call a phonenumber
- Send a SMS to a cellphone
- Plain text
- Send an email

Module for stunning Presentations coming soon to XOOPS

I was reading yesterday an interesting article about integrating Impress.js, the awesome JavaScript library that can create absolutely stunning presentations similar to Prezi, into WordPress (see here).

And I was thinking that it would be cool to have something like this for XOOPS users too. How difficult would it be?

So last night I've started working on making a module that could contain presentations and slides in the database.

Using TDMCreate, it went relatively fast, and I am happy to show you the pre-Alpha version of XOOPS Presenter

Resized Image

As an example, I took the original presentation from Impress.js, and placed it in the database. Each slide is now served by XOOPS individually, and we can set the options (like rotation, scaling, etc.) for each of them.

So pretty soon XOOPS users will be able to take advantage of the amazing capabilities of this cool JavaScript library.

Please check it out, and let me know what you think...

Just click on the "Slides" link and enjoy the presentation.

I hope, we'll have soon some cool presentations about XOOPS itself, especially since there will be quite few new and exciting things coming in the upcoming weeks and months

BTW - this presentation requires modern browsers, like Chrome. IE will probably fail there.
