Extending Your Site

There are a multitude of modules that are not just limited to blog sites. Initially XOOPS can be used as a small blog site, though it can scale to a news site or forum, or even an enterprise level site such as eCommerce.

XOOPS comes preloaded with a wide range of core modules to get you started, though you can download additional add-ons via the admin area’s Modules section. These files are usually compressed files that can be downloaded, uncompressed then reuploaded accordingly.

Similar to extending your site through modules, you can also customise the appearance of your site. XOOPS uses the Smarty template engine – web templates written in PHP. Thankfully, if you are not so savvy with creating your own custom template directly with PHP, there is an abundance of user created templates available either free or at a premium on the marketplace.

By ordering a XOOPS account with Hosting.co.uk, you get a wealth of features including but not limited to:

  • Versatile no matter the size of the site
  • Extendable through modules
  • Sophisticated access permission

User Management

XOOPS is relatively easy to use and intuitive when it comes to user management. Administrators can search for individual members, moderate their posts, send email, private message and ascertain which groups and what permissions they have assigned – for example, whether they are a moderator or not.

With the built in messaging system, administrators can contact individual members or groups without the need of manually copy and pasting from address books. Particularly useful if you aim to address groups – it can all be done through the messaging system.

XOOPS is an excellent Content Management System solution for anyone seeking a small, medium or large scale website. As a general rule, any decent CMS should come with a wide variety of methods to extend and XOOPS is no exception – there are plenty of modules at your disposal to make this a very viable option.
