[Poll] Community Choice: Next Official Extension

Post by EXreaction » Tue Jul 15, 2014 12:10 am

The Extensions Development Team would like to ask you to vote for the next official extension!

We've compiled the following list for you to choose from:
  • Auto Groups - an extension which allows admins to configure conditions, e.g. reaching defined post count, membership days, or warnings, that will add users automatically to a defined usergroup.
  • Posting Templates - an extension that allows admins to create predefined/canned message templates that can be used when a user starts a new topic.
  • Paypal/Donation - a page for accepting donations through PayPal including the ability to add users who donate to a special group (Donor Group).
  • Pages - an extension that allows admins to create custom static pages for their forum (NOT a CMS).
The poll will last 2 weeks.

The complete features of the chosen extension will be defined once the poll is completed.

i think Posting Templates is the most relevant there. Custom pages also looks nice, but phpbb always had tons of portal/cms mods that have that feature.

I went with Auto Groups, but here's my list in order of preference if anybody cares. :D
  1. Auto Groups
  2. Paypal/Donation
  3. Pages
  4. Posting Templates

I would agree with this. :)
Templates could be very useful for specific use cases, but I don't think most users would benefit from this.

AutoGroups and then "topics only visible to topic starter".

I went with AutoGroups: very useful and versatile one.

I went with Pages. The Static Pages Mod was always in my top 10.

Why not Recent Topics? It is included by default in SMF (and probably in other platforms) and I think it is a critical MOD for any smaller-scale forum that is not supported by a CMS-based home page.

(I went for the "pages" choice because I think it would be a useful user-oriented customization)

Definitely pages, because I use my phpBB3.0 as a website. And without this page extension I wouldn't be able to update to 3.1, because I would lose the most important part of my website. Beside that it would be a nice and easy addition to a lot or user who get more out of there phpBB software. And I guess it's not the difficult to develop for someone with enough knowledge and experience.

For paypal it would be a nice feature to have a time limited group membership.
Member pays the subscription and becomes premium member for lets say a year. After that, the member will be a regular member unless he/she pays for another year.
