XOOPS Content Management Site
XOOPS is an acronym of eXtensible Object Oriented Portal System.

Though started as a portal system, XOOPS is in fact striving steadily on the track of Content Management System.
It can serve as a web framework for use by small, medium and large sites.
XOOPS CMS features module interface, roles-based permissions, multi-byte language support, personalization, optional mobile-optimized themes and nearly 500 plugins to extend and customize.
XOOPS CMS is an extensible, OO (Object Oriented), easy to use dynamic web content management system (CMS) written in PHP.
XOOPS is the ideal tool for developing small to large dynamic community websites, intra company portals, corporate portals, weblogs and much more.
A lite XOOPS can be used as a personal weblog or journal.
For this purpose, you can do a standard install, and use its News module only.
For a medium site, you can use modules like News, Forum, Download, Web Links etc to form a community to interact with your members and visitors.
For a large site as an enterprise one, you can develop your own modules such as eShop, and use XOOP's uniform user management system to seamlessly integrate your modules with the whole system.
