PingTrax 1.04


PingTrax 1.04 is a module that uses auto discovery to generate links to send to PingLists as well as allow for Permalink's for trackbacks on all your public site! It has a plugin's system if you want to use it to customise your module input's into PingTrax but this isn't required to operate on the system.

There is a smarty function which output a table for the permalink which is <{xoTrackbacks}> or <{xoTrackbacks dirname=$xoops_dirname}> this will output when you put it in your theme the permalink as well as any trackbacks that have been linked to the site.

It utilises preloader events to maintain the pinglists as well as trackbacks; but it also generates your sitemaps as well in xml in the root and alters the robots.txt to reflect the sitemaps. This is all through auto discovery so there is very little you have to do to use this module in base mode. There is also in the the include folder 3 text files which are used in order to specify root names for Id's and identity tags in the $_GET path of the URL in case you need to do some basic customisation without having any knowledge of how to write a plugin's class.

I have attempted too make this module fluid and dynamic so it is easy to implement! It will list your site on the web quickly and effectively, so please download and install it is for XOOPS 2.5.8 or later.

Face à face avec Xoops Xoops France

Article sur TechRepublic au sujet de Xoops.
Mamba, Eduardo Cortés et Richard Griffith ont répondu à leurs questions.

Dans un article récent, j'ai interpellé Drupal, Joomla et XOOPS sur l'état de leur « convivialité utilisateur ». Les développeurs de XOOPS m'ont gentiment tendu la main et nous avons décidé d'avoir une conversation au sujet de leur système de gestion de contenu. La discussion a offert un peu de perspicacité dans ce qu'ils font maintenant et pour l'avenir.

L'interview a été réalisée avec :

. Michael Beck, responsable de l'équipe de commercialisation
. Eduardo Cortés, auteur de l'extension « XOOPS Common Utilities »
. Richard Griffith, responsable d'équipe du noyau de Xoops et notre architecte en chef

(Note de la rédaction : Beck, Cortés et Griffith ont informé TechRepublic qu'ils ont collaboré sur leurs réponses et ont soumis les réponses en équipe).
Articles about XOOPS in Tech Republic
We knew it already for years, but it's always nice to see that the technology media also considers XOOPS as powerful and limitless as Drupal and Joomla, as it was stated recently in an article in Tech Republic !

This was my response in the comments:
"You're absolutely right with your assessment about the need for Simplicity, but I guess, you've missed the XOOPS extension called "Common Utilities" ( :)

So I invite you to download the latest version of XOOPS 2.5.8 (, the Common Utilities extension, incl. some of the modules created with this new architecture (
and take it for a spin and let us know what you think.

The Common Utilities will be part of the upcoming "next generation" version of XOOPS - see more on our XOOPS Roadmap: "

As a follow-up to the article in Tech Republic, the author conducted an interview with us, and it is now posted there as "One on one on one with XOOPS"

So as you can see from the interview, there are a lot of cool things coming for XOOPS, but we need your help, so please get involved:

Two awesome XOOPS modules gwReports and...
If you're interested to see what's possible with XOOPS, check out these two professional-grade modules, gwReports and gwLoto, developed by Richard (aka Geekwright), our Core Team leader.

Both of them are now available for forking on GitHub:

Original Image

a) gwReports is a serious MySQL reporting tool implemented as a module for XOOPS. gwReports allows the module administrator to enter SQL queries in such a way that they can be run by users in a controlled manner. The module administrator defines reports, which can consist of one or more SQL queries, known as sections. Access to a report is strictly controlled by the group permissions the module administrator assigns to it. A report can take parameters, such as a date range, if needed. The column output of a report section can be customized with a variety of formatting options. Reports can be organized into a menu system by topic, or accessed through system blocks. All of this is done without any programming required; only the creation of the SQL query is needed.

A new auto-complete parameter type that allows you to specify a simple query that returns possible values for a parameter. When the report user enters a partial value for the parameter, the system will respond with a selection list of possible matches using jQuery UI autocomplete. (prototyped by KS Tan)

Report sections can include a data tools option which adds the jQuery UI dataTables plugin to the report display. This enables column sorting, value filtering and pagination. (prototyped by KS Tan)

Some possible uses include, adding visibility to data already collected within the CMS, making data from external sources visible in the CMS and providing access to archived data.

b) gwLoto is a "web based hazardous energy control plan manager. It is designed to facilitate the communication and tracking of vital safety procedures to enable workers to safely accomplish maintenance tasks through a documented lockout and tagout program (LOTA)."

Lockout/Tagout is a vital safety process, protecting workers from potentially life threatening injury from unexpected energy discharge while performing their assigned duties. In its simplest form, energy control can be just unplugging a piece of equipment before servicing it. But, as the energy complexity of the work place increases, so does the planning needed to protect a worker from the dangers of electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, chemical, thermal, and other energies. In complex process industries, isolating a single piece of equipment for servicing can involve 100 or more distinct actions to create a safely de-energized working environment.

Assisting this process through automation with software can be beneficial, but until now, this required writing custom software or relying on proprietary tools. With the release of gwLoto, a complete free and open source software solution stack is now available off the shelf.

gwLoto features:

* Manage control plans to safely de-energize, inspect and re-energize equipment for maintenance

* Create jobs to plan, assign, track and record the execution of control plans

* Associate existing business documents, such as forms, with plans

* Meet the needs of the modern workforce with multilingual capabilities

* Customize for specific requirements with plug-in based output options

* Separate roles in the enterprise with granular permissions

* Support unlimited users anywhere with web based design
