XOOPS (eXtensible Object Oriented Portal System) is an Open Source application platform written in PHP and database for developing small to large interactive dynamic community websites, company portals, intranets, weblogs, and much more. XOOPS uses Smarty, one of the most popular template engines in PHP, which makes it easier for designers to get used to the syntax: they don’t have to deal with raw PHP code. This book covers the whole workflow of building a XOOPS theme from scratch. This is a designer’s guide, so some knowledge of XHTML and CSS is assumed, but PHP know?how is not necessary.
