Suggest Extensions For "Essentials" Collection

Andrew Boon posted 3rd of June 2014 in Boonex News. 40 comments.

This is one of the first "new" collections. The idea is to curate a list of a few "must have" extensions from BoonEx Market that most experiences web-masters already know about, but newcomers may be yet to come across. 

 

Please, suggest Extensions that you think are of key importance for just about any new Dolphin-based site. Things that, one might think, should have made it to the core package anyway. Anything that you think is important - core mods, admin tools, templates, modules, plugins... anything.

Casal Pimenta
Chats Sonets is incomplete.
Need sound to alert calls.
Need to show friends online.
Needs to be modernized to the standards of dolphin Osho.
Andrew Boon
Yes, we should. Same as, perhaps, almost every Extension suggested here. We can't do all that quickly enough, though.

My vote would have to go to Deanos Tools.

Deano's tools adds some much appreciated features, such as direct SQL injections, being able to log in as other (for fixing purposes), adding addition admins etc... but thank to Deano its also a free module already!

While I have your attention. Please give see more the option to turn off/on star ratings site wide. Even better integrate this through out dolphin as a rating option to bring us up to date http://codecanyon.net/item/thumbsup/50411?WT.ac=search_thumb&WT.z_author=GeertDD

Agreed on Actions Manager! I forgot about this one. Getting started and dealing with action buttons was so frustrating.

One thing Boonex can do is to go and look at the tickets and see the things posted there. Deano put in a ticket with free code to add PHP blocks to the page builder some three, four years ago. So why aren't PHP blocks already in the core by now? Here, I will even link to the ticket: http://www.boonex.com/trac/dolphin/ticket/1578

Oh, here is the module he put on the market: http://www.boonex.com/m/Add_PHP_Block_to_Page_Builders_

Seriously, you had a developer to give Boonex free code that see more adds a very important element to the page builders and you ignored it.
yzisano
i think because php block error (for none experianced) will be unbearable for boonex team, in support view

"Cross Members Blocks"; http://www.boonex.com/m/cross-member-blocks

When I first started using Dolphin, no one had talked about the huge member privacy holes it had. I could not believe software that started life in the dating world would have these privacy holes. I have stated many times that "Cross Members Blocks" need to be a part of the core.

I think you should do what http://download.cnet.com/ where they have starter kits for each operating system. You could have a starter kit for Boonex.

Well because Dolphin is a social-based site.... I am surprised that not a single person has ever mentioned events. Whole sites have evolved with JUST events and are flourishing, plus it is the largest revenue source for people to make money on the listings, and also draw people together. And since I have had a hand in each event system out there, I would seriously look at the implementation from Modzzz. From ticketing, to concerts, to private events, and more, it is the best system with a full grasp see more of recurring events. Anything without an events system is just a VIRTUAL system with disparate people never given a good way to connect face to face.

There are 3 things that I think should be included with Dolphin as part of the default package.
1 - recurring payments. Little point having membership system so integral to the whole script, if there is no way (other than 3rd party) to take recurring membership payments.
2 - photo uploads in forums, not just url links.... PKForum 'fixes' this, but this is one thing that should be basic to Dolphin.
3 - A Chat module that is not flash based so will work on all mobile phones.

All these things see more have been bought up time and time again on the forums here over years... should be included as standard package.

How about integrating a real photo gallery like coppermine of Gallery 3 as an extension. All the photo modules I have seen for Dolphin are rudimentary and juvenile. Lets get serious about photos.

wOnly new to Boonex but a few things I've noticed that could help usage, design etc.
1- Being able to edit HTML files from the admin.
2- Being able to change the width of boxes.
3- being able to insert html codes in boxes.
4- being able to decide how many items can be displayed side by side within boxes.
5- Being able to choose what's displayed in the stats box.

These are just a few little things I found which would most definitely make life easier.
Cheers
phil1ooo
Oh and another one is being able to input text with things like uploader loading. like for videos, they take a while but yet no message can be displayed for the user not to click on anything while it's uploading meaning they can think it's not working. the other thing based on the same note is being able to display file size upload limits to the end user below the uploader. For both images and videos or anything that needs uploading.
Cheers
yzisano
there many good mods but the most **important** thing is that they will be supported and maintained, because some modules vendors are gone and i had no idea about this when purchasing

If they would be or come in the market :


- An opt-in extension for Mailchimp (or another mass mailing program) - since the build-in mass mailer doesn't work and will probably not work for the next 6 months.

- A responsive template with the layout of uni or alt (especially former menu layout for computer of laptop)


Wishful thinking ...
