About XOOPS Cube Legacy

XOOPS Cube is an Open Source Web Application Platform, empowering webmasters to create dynamic and content rich websites with ease. It is highly compatible with XOOPS, allowing users to implement and enjoy their favourite XOOPS modules (have to be at least 2.0.7 compliant), while using the new and improved core of XOOPS Cube.

Aiming to become the most sophisticated of all Nukes !


What's the difference between XOOPS and XOOPS Cube?

XOOPS, like other Nuke derivatives such as PHP-Nuke, is labelled a Content Management System (CMS), which can be extended with modules. Users can add or change certain functions by selecting modules that meet their needs. Though it is less flexible if a user needs to customize authentication functions, web accessibility, and the like.

XOOPS Cube is not a framework and don't provide any. But, XOOPS Cube supplies many ways to set you free to run your favorite framework within Cube. If you want to use your favorite framework, the XC freedom concept "No Framework" will feat your needs.

XOOPS Cube was started from scratch, and its source code released under the BSD licence. Legacy source code which is one of base modules is released under a GPL licence because Legacy includes some code of XOOPS2. But XOOPS Cube BSD license can deal and contain Legacy Package GPL.

XOOPS Cube 3S Concept - Simple, Secure, Scalable



XOOPS Cube is simple, inspired by Ogre, the core is minimalistic and easily extandable. 

Simple core

  • Making some functions in the core into modules and classes.
  • Core without any unused functions hogging valuable resources.
  • Avoiding overlaps of code in scripts.



In XOOPS Cube the functions of Xoops System Module have been placed into their own modules, such as account management and private messages. With XOOPS Cube you can chose or develop your own template engine (e.g. Smarty). The core of XOOPS Cube is simple and small, offering only the minimum of needed functionality. XOOPS and XOOPS Cube are therefore very different from each other.

Site owners and companies can run XOOPS Cube with confidence. 

  • Token system (one time ticket) to secure the system.
  • Clean and efficient code to secure and extend the system.



XOOPS Cube enables you to build your website with greater flexibility. It is not just a CMS,
but a Web Application Platform. This allows you to design your own CMS to suit all your need

Highly customisable and configurable CMS for all kinds of websites

  • Enhanced object oriented code and architecture.
  • Plain and efficient code simplifying further development.
