am i just not seeing it ? or is a section just for Community addons / Enhancements non existant? im not refering to patches or mods of the yaf source. but rather Scripts / apps that provide additional functionality / feature without any changes at all to the Yaf Source?

Could we get such a section created? and not really a question anwser type forum but one that is just for posting various apps that are designed to work with yaf? with maybe a requests sub forum but the main section only for Posting Addons.. support for the different addons can be handeled in the addon thread.

i am working on a few such apps i am building my entire site with yaf as the base. and figured id share my work so that others could maybe help improve on. but there just isnt a section where stuff wouldnt get washed away by various questions and problems and stuff

i am currently working on

Download tracking System with permissions based on yaf ranks.. eg only certain ranks can access certain files

useful for creating ranks for lets say beta testers. or rewarding users with downloads based on their rank. you can even link a download to a particular forum. and records who downloaded that item and the number of times they have downloaded it. you can even turn on and off guest access. this is brand new code so its still not perfect. but just something id like to share with other yaf users to collaberrate on and improve.

just drop the files into a yaf installation and run a script that adds 3 tables to the database and its ready to go.

i am also working on integrating a bug tracker , and a store with yaf. and as they progress those are also things id like to share with the community to help grow on .

But basically i would like for there to be a section just for this type of thing. that wont get cluttered with with a bunch of other stuff.

I second this motion.

Is there a list of Plugins somewhere?

Ditto (likewise) for Themes?

Thank you, Michael.

There's no real list, because nobody has developed anything really that has not already been included in YAF. In most cases, what few features were done through plugins have been integrated into YAF directly over the years. Likewise with themes -- any contributed themes with permission have been included directly in the YAF distribution.

If you start a topic in the YAF Customization section with your plugins, that was really the intended place for them. Themes can be posted in the Themes forum. YAF themes require a corresponding XML definition file, and the necessary images/css/javascript files in their own subfolder (also defined in the theme's XML file). This layout would make a theme 'portable' and able to be downloaded by users and installed. Installing a theme merely requires you unpack the zip to it's proper location: theme's xml file inside the /themes folder, and the theme's subfolder inside there as well, then restart YAF and if there are no issues with your XML file, YAF will detect it and include it in the list. If you do develop a custom theme, but base it off of a YAF theme currently existing, it is proper to reference the theme's original developer and time contributed.

well again what i would like is a place where people could contribute such things. (its impossible for YAF to include everything) and a place that wont get cluttered with themes / questions / and general topics.. a place strictly for posting community (Third party) applications that are designed to work with yaf.. again i am not talking about Customizing yaf in anyway. rather applications that integrate with yaf to provide more of a Complete Website.

perhaps plugin is not a correct "Term" think of what i am proposing as.. Microsft Office to Microsoft windows..

Windows is the foundation( -- Yaf)

office(addons) adds completly new functiomality while leaving windows(yaf) completly untouched.

im just looking for a section where people can contribute such things if they wish again that wont get cluttered with all the other stuff..
