New Tutorials added to XOOPS Documentation
Sun, 27 Sep 2015 09:40:00 -2300
Last year we've started to standardize on GitBook as our delivery mechanism for XOOPS Documentation (see here)
Today I've added couple of new Tutorials: xLanguage and NewBB. They are not yet finalized and are still "work in progress", but because of this it gives the XOOPS Community the opportunity to get involved and help with improving our documentation, which we know is badly needed!
Please note that ALL of the XOOPS books are hosted on GitHub in the XOOPS Documentation repository, and therefore they all can be "forked", improved by you, and your modifications can be then submitted back to the original for inclusion. This is exactly the same process as with using GitHub as a Version Control for source code
The beauty of it is that you can learn and practice how to use GitHub, and at the same time help XOOPS to improve its documentation, especially since for writing documentation there is no programming expertise needed, but only the familiarity with the module. You can also start using the particular module and write the documentation as you learn how to use it.
The advantage of this approach is very clear: the XOOPS developers have limited amount of time, and they can:
1) spend it on debugging and improving existing modules, and developing new ones,
2) or they can spend it on writing tutorials.
It would be truly fantastic if those XOOPS users who don't have programming skills, could help us with documentation!

UHQ GeoLocate v0.96 released!
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 07:43:01 -2300
It's been another couple of years since the module has been updated. There are a few tweaks in here that now set the minimum version to XOOPS 2.5.7.
Functionally, this should be ready for a production implementation. There are some more administrative pieces I've got in my to-do list before I give it the big 1.0.
Direct downloads are here.
Also, this project can be found on GitHub here.
From the changelog:
====[ 0.96 -- 2015-06-16 ]====
* Modified directory structure to really fit in GitHub. (Mamba)
* IPInfoDB v2 APIs are depreciated and have been removed as options. Update scripts will change this accordingly.
* Help section utilizes new help structure for 2.5.7+
* Update script uses language localization in admin.php,
* Update script now produces verbose notes for updates to v0.96.
* Removed redundant file check in update script.
* Dev environment is now XOOPS 22.214.171.124
====[ 0.95 -- Not Released ]====
* Fixed a couple rendering issues which would see an error condition.
* Sub-branch adjusting to quirks in XOOPS 2.6.0 Alpha 2.

We are very happy to let you know that Eduardo has started to work on the "Presentation Layer" in XOOPS 2.6.0, using his fantastic Common Utilities as basis to merge them into the Core
We all know and love the work done by Eduardo over the years, and therefore we know that XOOPS 2.6.0 will have an awesome Admin GUI for the Core and for the modules!
More info and screenshots are on GitHub XOOPS, as well as the follow-up discussion.
