Where are the modules in XOOPS 2.0.14?

XOOPS 2.0.14 is unlike other releases of xoops core in that it does not contain additional modules ready for intallation. This is there so you have greater flexibility in developing your xoops site with modules suited to your needs and with modules which are up to date. Modules that are promoted as compatable with Xoops 2.0.13 should continue to be compatable with 2.0.14. If however you do find a problem please search the forums to see if it has been addressed.

Make sure your modules folder is writable (777) before trying to upload and install modules.
Make sure if you decide you do not like a module you deactivate it before removing it from your module folder.

Our Module repository site is not as up to date as we would like it to be. This will be addressed in a future new look website. In the meatime please use the links to cuurent modules found in Xoops 2.0.14 release notes and familiarise youresle with the following resources:

FAQ section modules
Documentation site where you will find administration manuals and some work beginning on modules.
Xoops News on modules where you will find developers have links to latest releases of modules.

There is of course the module repository as well. So - there are plenty of modules out there - just make sure you do a little research first. Using the xoops search function is a great tool for finding out more about how to use, set up and troubleshoot some modules by typing in the module name and pressing search.

Recomended modules, especially for beginners include
- News (very Important)
- Downloads.
- WfSections or Smartsections.
- XoopsPolls
- MyLinks or SmartLinks
- Cbb - Fórum
- Profile (for version 2.14)
- SmartPartner or equal.
- XoopsProtector (very important)

You can find all these using the search function and the full debate about how we could package modules

Hope this helps to get you started!
