Modules & Snippets Downloads
« on: February 13, 2014, 11:38:22 AM »
Would it be better to have all up to date modules & snippets in one place?

I'm happy to have WebsiteBaker.net as a complete site dedicated to WB addons, templates, modules etc etc. I am asking the question to the WB team & module developers if the would like to help out with this??

Look forward to everyones replies

Very good idea!

There was just another (German) discussion about AMASP and a new AMASP ... unfortunately not with a encouraging end. Appreciate that you already affers a domain. If I can help I will do ...

i dont think so

look to AMASP, its a private project, only one boss, a little trouble and everything stops.
the best (in my eyes) is a comunity project on a comunity server, like the addon area here

The problem with AMASP is it just seems to get neglected and nothing updated. It's ok modules getting posted on the forum for download but not everyone can find them. It's just hard work at the moment.

Look at other open source CMS systems they are updated all the time. In my eyes this is where WB fails... lack of modules in one place.

WB has startet a new "comunity" ADDON-Area here - why another place?
Everyboby can use this area, but it need some input - and thats the problem everywhere, also at WebsiteBaker.net  :wink:

There is a big button in the main menu  ;-)

at the bottom from the entry page in the addon area is a small link to a form for addon-uploads - see at http://www.WebsiteBaker.org/en/add-ons/add-ons-project/contribute.php

i think, Ruud in the Men there

i'll talk with the guys about a better link on this page, maybe as a link in the right menu

the problem at other places like AMASP is, thats a one-men-show, everything stops if he goes to holiday or in a hospital for a longer time and if everybody send modules, its too much work for only one person.
2. its not possible for me to send a updatet module, i dont know, how - and i cannot find any information about that, maybe, i'm blind - i know, its work for other people

I added one of my Modules ... when (and where) will it be visible? Automatically, or will it be checked? Basically, what will happen with the addon entries made?

at my last time it needs  (i think) one day, but if Ruud has a little time in this moment, maybe it needs only one hour

i send the mapBaker-module with only a german description, so he needs a little time for the translations and to put it in the download area
but he send a mail to the mailadress in the form, when its finish
