Module xmDoc 1.0 Final Released

Published by alain01 on 19-May-2020 09:30 (367 )
The monxoops.fr site opened on March 1, 2020 and we are already offering a 4th module for XOOPS. Here is now

xmdoc

a documents management module.

This module is initially complementary to the modules of the xm-modules series. In fact, associated with these, it will allow you to add documents to your articles (xmnews module) and to your static pages (xmcontent module).

Here are some interesting elements of the module:
  • Fine management of rights by user groups, for each category (Access, Suggest, Edit and Approve, Delete)
  • Anti-leeching filter possible with list of authorized sites
  • Possible limitation of the number of downloads for each file in 24 hours per user
  • Choice of authorized extensions (from a list> 100)
  • Multi-languages FR GB/US

The particularity of this module is that it could act as "4 modules in 1":
1 - Module originally intended to attach any type of file as an additional module to the xm-module series
2 - File Downloads management module

A document can be a file, a web page link or a Youtube Videos page link.
It could therefore very easily also be used, by adapting the templates (models) of:

3 - Web Links Management Module
4 - Youtube video page management module (via links)

We will explain how to adapt the templates to make xmdoc a "4 in 1" module.

The package also provides templates for an overload with a responsive design, in Bootstrap 4.

On monxoops.fr, the module is used for resource management (XOOPS Core, Translation, Modules and Themes)

Improved User Experience on the Xmnews module

Published by alain01 on 04-Apr-2020 06:50 (1618 )

Untitled 1

The xmnews module, a module for managing articles, already had in its folder extra/Templates for bootstrap 4 overloading elements to obtain a better rendering visual pages, thanks in particular to the use of the famous library CSS Bootstrap 4 

We wanted to go even further in the User eXperience (UX) by bringing more readability and functionality.

1 - Presentation of the main changes and additions
  • Title highlighted 1
  • Display of the number of readings of highlighted articles. 2
  • Well defined area for metadata (author, date of publication, modification and note). 3
  • Optimization of the title length according to the size of the media 4
  • Optimization of the number of blocks displayed according to the size of the media: 
    Block mode in rows: 5
    • Up to 4 blocks (width greater than 991 pixels)
    • 2 blocks (if width between 577 and 991 pixels)
    • 1 block (if width less than 576 pixels)
    Column block mode: 6 New
    • Up to 4 blocks (width greater than 1199 pixels)
    • 3 blocks (if width between 992 and 1199 pixels)
    • 2 blocks (if width between 577 and 991 pixels)
    • 1 block (if width less than 576 pixels)

Here is the template for an article summary:

Resized Image


Initial BT4 template

Resized Image


Re-worked BT4 template

Here is the model of the "recent articles" blocks:

Resized Image

Recent blocks template

Resized Image

Recent block template

New
2 - Operating mode

Here we will briefly describe the steps to follow to use these available overloads. 
To work, you must use a theme XOOPS created under Boostrap 4 (and not Boostrap 3). 
You can take the theme xswatch4 but all theme compatible BT4 is fine.

  1. Copy the folder /modules/xmnews/extra/Templates for bootstrap 4/xmnews to /themes/my_theme/modules/
  2. So you should now have a folder /themes/my_theme/modules/xmnews
  3. Clear your cache to take into account the changes (Administration / Maintenance / Selection of the 3 caches, then submit button
  4. It's over, the overloaded theme is now operational for all the elements of the module xmnews

It's simple to implement and the rendering is beautiful, isn't it? 

Do you want to present your blocks in column mode? Very simple!

  1. Go to the folder /themes/my_theme/modules/xmnews/blocks
  2. Overwrite the file xmnews_block.tpl by copying xmnews_block_colonnes.tpl to xmnews_block.tpl
  3. Clear the cache as previously indicated
3 - To Go further ...

Of course in this article, we do not explain what an overloading of theme, how to produce it and put it into operation. 
We will not fail to carry out a tutorial in a few weeks explaining step by step how to set up an overload, to modify it in order to fully meet your UX needs.

Xmnews 1.0 RC 2

Published by Mage on 05-Feb-2020 13:00 (2951 )
I am pleased to announce the release of version 1.0 RC 2 of xmnews

Xmnews is a simple module for creating news (articles) for XOOPS. This complete module is an interesting alternative for posting articles on its website. This module is in line with the other modules of the XM family.
The latest new features from xoops are implemented. The module is delivered with basic bootsrap 3 compatible templates. If you are not using a bootstrap 3 theme, you will need to create your templates using the overloading of templates in your theme.
In the extra folder you will find 100% responsive bootstrap 4 compatible templates. In the future only the bootstrap 4 templates will be offered.

The main points of the module are:

• Category management.
• Full permissions to customize access.
• Keywords (SEO) customizable for each article or automatic if the field is free.
• Automatic description (SEO) for each article.
• Management of possible articles from the user side (addition, validation, deletion and cloning).
• Several blocks available (Recent, most viewed, random and awaiting validation).
• etc.

Please note, this module needs xoops 2.5.10. If you are not on this version, this is the time to develop your site

It is an RC version so it is recommended to use it only on a test site. The final version is planned for the next few days depending on the problems you may encounter.
Note that this is an RC version and no addition of functionality is planned for version 1.0.

This module is supported and used by: https://www.monxoops.fr/
