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!!!!

Quote:
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.

Xoops FAQ section and unpublished questions

carnuke  24-Dec-2006 19:09  5033 reads  2
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.

Please don't be offended if your question is deleted or left unanswered. It's probably better for you to use the forums for Q&As that relate to specific technical questions.

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

Also, please DO NOT submit questions with answers like 'please help me' these will be automatically deleted.

Thank-you all for your contributions, especially those that add meaningful, well thought out answers. This is an invaluable resource, thanks to your input.

The SmartFactory and XOOPS.org Firefox Search PluginsFellow XOOPSers ! I know some of you already did this in the past for previous version of Firefox but I thought I could share this anyway with you again for the latest Firefox 2.0 release ! I have created a Firefox search engine plugin for The SmartFactory, FRXOOPS.org and another one for XOOPS.org. In summary, this means that you would be able, at any time, to search either one of these sites using Firefox search box ! These plugins uses the Open Search description format for search plugins. Plugins that use the OpenSearch description syntax are compatible with IE 7 and Firefox. Because of this, they are now the recommended format for use on the web.
