The team is proud to present its new achievement, a 100% responsive website.
This is the website of AGOPC, the Geneva Association of Civil Protection Organizations.

Here are some technical elements that make up the site:

Xswatch4 theme
We started the project from the xSwatch 4 theme, the css-cerulean variant, and we adapted it in terms of colors to the AGOPC logo.
We have redesigned the top menu, clearer, with direct access to certain features and contextual signage.
Resized Image
It is a menu with the Sticky top function (Menu that sticks to the top of the page, even if you use the elevator to scroll the content upwards).
A carousel has been added and disappears when scrolling vertically.

Administrators toolbar
A toolbar adapted to the needs of site managers has been configured, all responsive.
Watch the video here.

Modules used
To create the site, we used:
xmcontent for the main content of the news
xmnews to manage the news of the association
extcal to manage association events
xmdoc for document management
xmcontact for the contact form

Adaptation of overloads for the module (extcal
We wanted to modernize the boostrap4 templates of this module.
Here are 2 screenshots, one with an end date, the other not.

TinyMCE 5
We have integrated the famous and fabulous wysiwyg editor TinyMCe V5 (Excluding XOOPS plugin) in order to allow editors to provide high quality documents.
We also managed to integrate Bootstrap 4 so that we could provide a preview at the time of writing closer to the final render.
Here is an example :

xBootstrap4 Theme updated to Bootstrap 4.5

xBootstrap4 Theme updated to Bootstrap 4.5

Published by Mamba on 22-May-2020 10:00 (2152 )
Bootstrap 4.5 has been just released, and we have updated the xBootstrap4 theme as well.

But we need a lot of help to make it really cool. Can you help us?


xSwatch4-enabled Theme

Published by alain01 on 03-May-2020 08:10 (2804 )
The team is proud to offer designers and webmasters using XOOPS, a fully responsive theme, created in Bootstrap 4.

Indeed, we have adapted the dedicated xSwatch 4 theme for versions XOOPS 2.5.11 and later to make it operational on the current version of our CMS.

Here, in a few lines, the many advantages of using this theme:
  • 21 themes in 1!

    Yes, you are not dreaming, you can very easily switch between 21 variations of the theme! 21 !!!
    You can have an overview here:

  • Administrators toolbar

    This complete toolbar is reserved for administrators and is accessible directly from FrontOffice

  • Many overloads in Bootstrap 4

    To date, this theme puts at your disposal more than 15 overloaded modules allowing you to obtain a fully full responsive website, all in Bootstrap 4

  • Direct access to the management of the selected block

    This tool allows you to choose directly from FrontOffice the block you want to edit

  • PopUp window unread private messages

    PopUp window opens for all new unread private messages

  • Customization and overloading of Bootstrap definitions

    Add your own CSS definitions and override that of Bootstrap

  • Multi-languages

    Translations available in different languages

Let me present you the last advantage and not least:
Webmasters can already use and produce this BT4 theme on the current version of XOOPS, version 2.5.10.
When the stable version 2.5.11 is released, your theme will be fully operational. Your migration was thus carried out very easily!

You will find on the dedicated file, the full description of this theme, the procedure for choosing a variant among the 21, that to add your CSS customization and the link to download the resource.
We also recommend that you read the file contained in the package.

Finally, let me conclude this news by thanking all the players in this package:
- Obviously, Richard, on the initiative of this magnificent theme and all during this project
- The team including GregMage
- Michael, as usually
- Ggoffy (DE), Luci rota (IT), my daughter (ES) for translation
- Lio MJ (pagination css style)

From Richard:
It has been a team effort, and you have helped push it farther than I first imagined. Thank you, and all who helped!
But, I do hope you will agitate people to move to 2.5.11 when the time comes shortly. There are lots of very compelling reasons not to ignore it.

New theme wgskiclub

New theme wgskiclub

Published by goffy on 13-Nov-2019 00:00 (2785 )
Hi XOOPS community

I want to provide my latest theme wgskiclub

The theme is based on onepage technology, i.e. on home page only blocks are used.

The theme use Bootstrap3 and supports parallax effect.

In the theme following modules have been adapted:
- apcal
- wginfo (a clone of publisher, used for general information)
- wgnews (a clone of publisher, used for actual news)
- wgteams
- wggallery
- wgsitenotice
- xnewsletter

all the other modules are not adapted.

In order to optimize page loading time and image quality I use three different images, which are linked via js as css background image to the website:
- for mobile devices I use the images "header-home-small.jpg", "parallax1-small.jpg" etc.
- for big devices I use the images "header-home-big.jpg", "parallax1-big.jpg" etc.
- for medium devices I use the images "header-home.jpg", "parallax1.jpg" etc.

Brutalicuss just updated his two themes for XOOPS 2.5.9:





This one is looks like others, my first - xsimplegrid, but its really quite different

- there is smart fast menu with almost automated links to our installed modules, user login or not, new messages, admin menu link
- there is simple top sliders for home and content pages
- parallax image between top and bottom blocks
- as usual background sliders for system and contents
- little breadcrumb over contents
- automated custom banner if system banner is off
- as usual fine social and search fields at the bottom
- OK and most important - mani, mani different blocks configuration:

The is 25 possible, different top (bottom) block configuration on the template, 12 bottom (top) and 5 for footer blocks
(see usage.txt and screenshots in docs folder, also you can view now in the demo - gallery)

The theme is clean for w3 validation, simple to use for own projects and as I believe looks modern and 100% responsive for mobile and tablets.
