Beortho.com with new theme based on Ethernial
Tue, 31 Mar 2015 05:11:50 -2300
A new theme, based on Ethernial has been created for beortho.com by Eduardo Cortés. The new theme includes full integration with Formulize, a module designed for forms creation and reports on the web.
Another relevant feature of this new site, is a new Landing Page for QuickPages that is used as home page. This landing page has two different layouts: one for anonymous users and another for registered users.
The biggest challenge for this project was the integration with formulize, because this module has all presetation code (HTML) hard coded in PHP files, however the results are satisfactory.
In words of François, Webmaster of beortho.com:

Bootnewage CPanel theme (Beta release)
Tue, 31 Mar 2015 05:10:00 -2300
I am happy to introduce a new CPanel (Admin) theme for XOOPS, completely rewritten with Bootstrap, in order to provide visibility and compatibility with different mobile devices.
It is important to stress that unfortunately, with versions of XOOPS 2.5.x that support Bootstrap, this Admin theme may not work properly. Therefore this Beta version should be tested first locally, before using it in a production site.
I have changed many file in the System module, in addition to many other Core files, so it is necessary to do the tests on a fresh installation of XOOPS on your localhost, because if there is incompatibility with this new code, you're not risking anything.
However, even the Default theme will be changed, to avoid any problems.
This below is a screenshot of the theme that can be modified in various colors just like the default theme.
- bootstrap.css 3.3.2
- bootstrap.theme.css 3.3.2
- bootstrap.min.js 3.3.2
- jquery.min.js 1.11.2
- jquery-ui.min.js 1.10.4
As I wrote in this thread for some problems, you might find difficulty with some features.
I must point out that in the package there are other themes, in addition to the default, but they are not complete like this one. You can still edit them to your liking in the expectation that we can use in production.

Newoni, a new free theme
Sat, 07 Mar 2015 05:47:04 -2300
I'm thrilled to announce my first new XOOPS theme in a few years!
It's been a long while, but I hope this one is worth it ;).
I present to you... Newoni!
Newoni is built upon the wonderful xbootstrap which is a wonderful base template to use (if you are familiar with Bootstrap, which unfortunately I'm not :P).
The design itself has been heavily inspired by the current Neowin website.
* Responsive design
* Included image slider
* Modified login block template
* Modified search block template
* And many others.
My demo site is currently not yet ready, but once it is I'll post it in the comments below.
You can download Newoni for free on the Github repository: https://github.com/kevjoe/xoops-newoni
If you prefer a direct download link, you can click here.
Please keep in mind that Newoni is being released as a work in progress. It's ready for usage on any website, but not all templates have been styled as much as I like them to be. I however couldn't wait to release it ;).
If you've got any questions about Newoni, feel free to ask me about them below, or mail me on email@example.com.
ocaholic.ch/it/fr/co.uk/net with modified xBootstrap Theme
Fri, 27 Feb 2015 14:01:58 -2300
Back in November 2014 I've started working with my coder from Italy on moving ocaholic to the xBootstrap theme. Meanwhile we've almost done everything we wanted to. There are some things in the forums we still want to change and there are also some minor changes to the way Publisher looks. Apart from that we want to change the news appear on the front page. But once all these things are done we're finally where we want to be.
Here we go with a link to the site: ocaholic
To give you a little overview which version of Xoops and the modules installed we're using, here a list:
Calendar: 2.21 Final
Multilingual Content Module: 2.17 Beta 1
News: 1.68 RC1
NewBB: 4.4 Alpha 1
XoopsPoll: 1.33 Final
Private Messaging: 1.1 RC2
Smart Profile: 1.86 RC2
Xoops Tag: 2.31 Beta 2
xNewsletter: 1.2 Final
xLanguage: 3.05 Beta 1
Please let us know what you think. The theme is fully responsive also. If you have any suggestions we would be more than happy reading from you.

I get questions about the timing and status of XOOPS 2.6.0, along with questions about how to help. I apologize for not doing a better job of communicating in this area. It is great to know that there is such interest!
The short answer is, we've come a long way, but there is still more to do. But, the good news is the end is in sight!
I've have entered a list of issues on GitHub that represent what I consider the essential changes that are still required. These issues are tagged "roadmap" and can be seen here: https://github.com/XOOPS/XoopsCore/labels/roadmap
This roadmap is only to the completion of the 2.6.0 target and is where development resources will be directed. This roadmap gives us a great base for future enhancements.
The list is quite manageable, and even more so with more help. If you see anything on the list that you would be interested in helping with, please jump in. Even if a given issue is assigned to someone, coordinated collaborative help would likely be greatly appreciated. Just indicate your interest in a given issue as a comment, and we can make sure we are not duplicating each other's efforts.
I will be happy to answer any questions and expound on the issues as needed. The best way to ask questions is probably as a comment on the issue on GitHub, that way everyone benefits from the discussion.
We have recently added some contributing guidelines on GitHub. The GitHub environment is a bit different from the SVN environment used for earlier XOOPS versions, so it includes some explanations and links to resources that might help in the new environment. See: https://github.com/XOOPS/XoopsCore/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md
In addition to the the roadmap issues, there are ongoing efforts to improve the quality of XoopsCore codebase. One example is unit testing. Alain91 has been doing a fantastic job creating and maintaining unit tests. (Insert a round of applause here. )
Unfortunately the rate of change in the remaining issues makes that effort a frustrating job. While we hope the individual developers will assist in updating the tests related to their changes, having "specialists" that watch that area and help keep up with the changes is a huge help. If you are familiar with or interested in unit testing using phpunit, this might be an opportunity to contribute.
Even if you can't program, you can still help out. Install a current copy of XoopsCore and try it out. Reporting bugs or other issues you notice is a big help.
With your help we can make this the best XOOPS ever!
Thanks for your attention. I'll get back to coding now.
