A couple of us are going to try working with a live install for a while to see if we get any ideas of things that are lacking. I’m hoping to finally get around to setting up that family website. And Doug was giving it a go as an intranet portal. Of course, with it’s integrated forum, we even talked a little bit about using it to run the pug. It would be nice not to have to log in twice on the site. 😉
Please check it out at http://www.xoops.org and offer any ideas or comments you would like to this article. What kind of site would you run? What kind of modules (image gallery, file repository, etc) would you need to run your site?
If you have access to a php install and a mysql database, XOOPS is easy to install into its own directory (I.e. you could run it in http://yoursite.com/xoops/ ) and not disturb your existing website. So if you find yourself with nothing to do some weekend, give it a try…I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
Until next time…
