Hello Benny,

Thank you for your comments. I will make the wiki page a.s.a.p. It is a good thing you mention this version check. I didn't realize that older versions of Gramps could give problems. I will check the link you gave me and add a version control.

I have made a Joomla! component and a Joomla! module that make it possible to show the contents of your GRAMPS database on a website that makes use of the Joomla! CMS. You can see what it looks like on my own website ( www.van-staveren.net ) It is in dutch but you will get the idea.
If you want to try the component and the module, please feel free to download them overhere.

You must install the component first and upload your data.gramps file (the xml document you can make with the export function of GRAMPS) with the components backend and then install the module. You have to make a menu item from the component in the usual way and you can place the module where you want. The module has two parts, one part shows the statistics of your database, the other shows the events of the current date.

Please let me know your comments and ideas.

Looks very nice.

Please, add a wiki page to our website explaining this, and add a link from

As one of the developers of Gramps I have one question: do you check the version number of the xml on import in Joomla? Please do, and don't allow import of xml versions that you have not tested, see http://www.gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php?title=GRAMPS_XML for examples of older xml versions and the changes in the dtd schema over the years.
For upcoming 3.2, there are no changes compared to present 3.1.
