Question to the community about my own modules

Post by bess »

Hello Everyone.

It's been a while this i leaved this community and even with the years behind me (more than 5 years), i still have some love for this Cms ;D

I have a bunch of old modules, unmaintened and i want to spend more time (one more time) on the maintenance of these.

But ... which one are still used today ? does someone have some stats ? (of download for example) can some people tell me whats modules are important for them ?

Thank you by advance <3

Hi Bess, I am glad you still have some love left for CMSMS. O0

I have used your Quotes Made Simple (Reloaded) - thank you! It works well but if I was doing the same job today I would use LISE which is very flexible:

Unfortunately when Amazon changed things a few years ago, it broke our stat counter for module downloads. We had a replacement on the way but then things went a bit sideways.

Glad to hear you're still active though, and perhaps if the older modules don't have a lot of interest, you might want to touch base with some of the devs doing forks of CG's modules and other popular modules to see if you can lend a hand? We're always bumbling around in Slack somewhere.
Not getting the answer you need? CMSMS support options

Not that I have much to say about what modules to get up to speed or not. I hope users will chime in on that. But I could not pass the opportunity to voice my warm welcome back :). Glad to hear from you!

Welcome back, Bess! :D

The Quotes Made Simple (Reloaded) is a fork of the Quotes module [http://dev.cmsmadesimple.org/projects/quotesms]. The original module has been maintained by me for a while. It is up-to-date and working at latest CMSMS and PHP. You might consider to drop your version, or join us at QuotesMS.

The Shotbot module I could use at welovecmsms.com. I now create the screenshots manually...
