XOOPS Norway, the Website providing support for Norwegian users of XOOPS has been reopened with an updated look and improved structure.

Rune and earplane did a great job bringing the Website up to date, and supporting Norwegian users in the past.

Not everybody speaks English well enough to take advantage of our main site here, therefore it is so important to have these local support sites. And since it is never enough to thank all the people who support XOOPS users in their native languages, we would like to use this opportunity to do just that - to Rune, Earplane, and all the other XOOPS community members who support XOOPS users around the world - a BIG THANK YOU!!!!

The list of XOOPS local support Websites is long, but if you're missing your native language among them, please let us know.

And if you would like to start a new XOOPS support site, please let us know as well - we are always happy to see XOOPS being represented in new countries.

Not many people know that in December 2007 XOOPS received the 2007 INFO Award in the CMS category.

Congratulations to all XOOPS developers in Brazil!!!!

SÃO PAULO - In the area of corporate software, three products are highlighted in the INFO 2007 Awards: Netweaver by SAP; Delphi for PHP by Borland, and XOOPS by the XOOPS [community].
An application for business intelligence and application server, Netweaver won 46% of the votes of readers of the INFO Business Intelligence category. According to Gartner, SAP, the developer of Netweaver, is a world leader in CRM (25.7% of the market), ERP (27% of the market) and in supply chain, with 19.7% of the market.

The integrated development environment for PHP Delphi by Borland, is another product winner. With 53% of the readers voting for it in the Development category. The software is the combination of two names that strong existed in the market. It combines the working methods of Delphi, one of tools favorite of programmers, with PHP, the leading language for developing dynamic websites.

Delphi for PHP provides for the creation of applications for the web with features and functions similar to what it does on the desktop. Jose Rubens Tocci, president of Borland for Latin America, states when Delphi for PHP was launched this year it won instant success in Brasil and its acceptance surprised even the team's local subsidiary.

Among the dozens of CMS (content management systems) available on the market, one of the highlights is the XOOPS, an open source program produced by the XOOPS [community]. The readers of INFO recognized this, devoting 37% of the votes to the product in the CMS category.
According to Gilberto Galdino of XOOPS Brasil, one of the groups of developing the tool in Brazil, the XOOPS community in Brasil is the second largest world (behind only the French) and has made major contribution in product development.

We've learned recently that CHIP, the leading computer magazine in Germany, has placed XOOPS on its Download list, and gave it 5/5 stars.

In the summary they wrote: If you would like to develop a larger Web-project, you won't be able to do it without a CMS software. With XOOPS you have a powerful tool to achieve it.

We are definitely very proud of this positive feedback about XOOPS from CHIP. It is exciting for us to see that leading computers magazines are finally taking notice of XOOPS. With our new "Communication Team" taking shape, we hope to have more of these positive news in the future.

This is a polite notice to all xoopsers who have had their FAQs unpublished or deleted in the moderation que.

Many of you are asking questions that have already been asked and answered in the FAQ section. In order to keep the FAQs precise and easy to navigate we must prune similar entries and deny similar questions that repeat content.

We use the FAQ section for Q&As that are considered useful for the general user and not every question is relevant.
