Since we just arrived on Xoops, I can tell you it's the most flexible platform available among all of those we tested.

They include, in no particular order: Joomla 1.0 and 1.5, Drupal, TYPO3, PHP-Fusion and a few other lesser known ones.

We found Drupal was the best as far as features go, but it had large issues with speed, its forums were utterly abysmal unless you settle for using a bridge and many of its modules had yet to be ported over to the latest version. It also became very, very large after not that long of use. The Views module was a gift from heaven though!

PHP-Fusion was the other nice one, but it was insecure and their main website got hacked repeatedly in a short period.

So in short, I'd say Xoops is pretty good right now. If you want an easy solution, Joomla can work it out, even though it can be clunky.

Well FF, you have to say we have a heavely modified version at this moment, we altered the Newbb modules, the news the Xoops core and downloads, so we aren't realy running on a vanilla Xoops.

And yes, our changes, atleast the ones who are realy nice, are going to be on the next release of Xoops.

Yea well, i took over the Administration of our forum 1 1/2 years ago as a total noob...and i mean what i say, i just knew that theres somethin out there they call html and the last time i wrote codes was on me Texas instruments like TI extended Basic lol.
I didnt even recordnized what i was gettin.
We are on "Module: System Admin 2.13" from that old thing and after havin just a lilbit of a clue i knew ....darn we´re in trouble.
Now im lookin for somethin that can handle the usual like mass user profilin and stuff, i guess u know what i mean.
Maybe, if u want, we can have a few words and try to find a solution for my little problem.
We have some ppl in our Team which pretty much know the ropes and stuff but i think another oppinion cant be wrong.
If i could understand how u guys found ur solutions and how u work with it, it would be an awesome help.

Thx, ill be readin a few thing about it.
What annoys me the most is that its really hard to keep the overview on things. I started to cleanup the groups and stuff but everythin seems to be spread on that darn interface and some things are there twice or at least do the same thing.
After changin things i get white screens and have to reload but i dunno how far this is xoops sided.
Atm i try to get more into the main stuff on the server basically edit the sourcetext itself to put layers on the footer and stuff.
I just cant have those things like the community bar not centered, it looks so...wrong.
Too bad i dont have the option to change things like the background directly in the admin interface.

Sadly, I'd say every CMS has its quirks and Xoops is by no means worse than the others.
