So you're telling me that a small possibility exists for some mods to be only on the MOD "Release Announcements & Support" forum and not in the MOD-DB?

If yes, can you give me some examples (besides EasyMOD which is a special case)?
Also how do you download these mods?

Here's one that I couldn't find in the MOD DB:
http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=258798
(just search for Signature Length Based on Rank; it didn't work in any). And then, it has Complete Archive at the bottom of each category which links to the forum, so obviously, the MOD DB (http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/catdb.php?db=1) doesn't have all of the mods in the MOD Release and Announcements forum. I'm sure that there are a few more examples but I don't feel like finding them right now.

this way this MOD checks for the MODs released at phpBB dot com, only the approved ones, isn't?

thanks
actuly if you put the 'MOD Version' line in your mod it should find it, unless he isnt searching via topic-id like this: http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?p=1713269

Ok.. I guess your MOD is able to find more than just in the MOD DB then. And sorry if I sounded offensive, and I say that because you kinda did (or well... more boastful but that's not a problem). Sorry for that.

Ummm... yeah.

how about having it check the topic instead of the moddb so mods that are in dev can use it if they have the correct post syntax.

This is like a feature i had in mind for the next major version (after 1.0.0).

When admin adds a mod, he can also add information about the topic refering to the development of the mod.
Then he is able to check for both released and development versions of the mod, or just for only one of them.

The problem is that most topics in the development forum do not follow a template, since a "template" that exists here is not actually required. Also in the same post, i can't really understand the following:
