Not having this function on our forum has been a major factor in the level of user participation so I donated and can confirm that the extension works exactly as advertised.

It is only here http://www.dmzx-web.net/viewtopic.php?f=52&t=1932 and here http://www.martins-homelinux.net/forum/ ... f=10&t=354 and yes its vip only.

the ext has been created and works on 3.1 and 3.2 it MAY be submitted to phpbb.com in the near future.

Sucks that it is VIP. I wonder why?

Good question.

It seems to me a forced way to donate, hence getting money using another site. There is nothing bad about commercial, but..

I do agree with coders offering a light version for free and with this try to motivate the user to upgrade (buying) to Pro, in this case it is up to the user to donate or not. Why should an user buy something that has been not validated (at least the light version should be IMHO)?

True, this will also make it the first time I have ever heard of a paid phpBB extension or even mod.

There are several "paid for" extensions around and there were even more MODs

I can understand the reluctance to put money towards something like this but in this specific case I can't really see any way of making a 'lite' version for free release - I mean it either does the advertised task or it doesn't, there really isn't any middle ground to provide a limited functionality version.

there is nothing wrong with offering extensions/styles etc. that are commercial. the author and the buyer have to be aware that phpbb.com does not offer support for extensions/styles that do not come from here.

If you do not want to pay for something , don' t. If you want support for a paid product, you get it from the seller.

Everything is possible, you could as an example limit the time a bit can be used or the times.. and on and on.

Not promoting any thing but as stated there are lots of paid extensions out there that will never be on phpbb.com alot of site owners dont care for validation (some do) it's a case of you want it or dont.

In what regard? :) I think the author has been pretty clear that he's made/finished this extension and it's available on his website for users that would like to pay for it.

Seems the "Donation" website doesn't work. Is there another link to the product?

EDIT: Works now, but I can't find the phpbb EXT

You cant find it due to it being in a vip forum hence the donation part that allows you in to the vip forum.
