Search Plugins has always been extremely useful to me.

Yes, I have removed that, Archived mods should not be in the vote.

I guess I need to update the code for that, it excludes the GY, but not archived.

I have gotten and continue to get a great deal of use from the "Search Plugins" product, and so it gets my vote. I'm actually very surprised it hasn't won MOTM before.

In my opinion, it's a "must have" product for anyone developing vB 3/vB 4 products. :)

I'm torn between the top two listed but at the same time I've always loved the force thread read.... oye, tough call!

That little mod that puts an underline under a URL when you mouseover it :)

for the 3rd time in a row, motm with less than 10 votes, sad times for vb.org & vb in general

can't even find a freelance coder anymore, even with a $500 bounty, vb is so damn dead :(

Do you mean the paid request you posted less than 9 hours ago? I would give it a day or two before declaring vB is "dead." :p

Not quiet dead yet, but yes, far less people visit that in the "hey days".

Simple fact is that many vB3 & vB4 owners already have all the mods they want, and there is virtually nothing for new vB5 owners.

People are still buying vB5, but installing vB4, so there is a need there, some people on vB3 are moving to vB4, so a need there.
I expect it to be around a few more years yet, but this will never be as busy as it once was (unless something totally unforseen happens).

You didn't put enough information in your post for anyone to know if they are even capable of doing the job. Not helpful.

There is an other reason το. Many times I tried to help others with the little knowledge of mine, but some people here are very selfish (fortunately one or two) and with there answers don't let you to go on.


So why to come here again as Paul very well says, if there is no new modification why to come here. Thanks and sorry for off topic

All well said. Totally agree. vB3 and vB4 sites already have everything that they want. So no reason to come back againa and again.

Also that "People are still buying vB5, but installing vB4" is a fact even if many don't like to accept it as true.

In person, I still love and support vBulletin. The only that vB is missing is not a feature but a responsive template. Have bought and tried all other software (IPB, xenForo, WBB). They have some good points, I do agree. But the overall rating for vB is the higher.

For vB5. If someday IB decide to give away a free license to coders/designers just for developing usage, then I'll try to see if I can code for vB5. But paying $230 is a risk that I can't effort.

I wish vbulletin development staff could deal with it, and restart development of vb4.
