hi there m8I am evaluating this on a locally installed copy of my site to test it out and decide whether to go for the paid version...it is looking good.
I know this addon from the vb days of when Mary(???) developed it, she then threw a wobbly and removed it, then came back, then got sick etc etc etc. Then Christer1s took it over and then Michael took over (Michael and Christeris could well be the same) and now support for it on VB has basically stopped. With all due respect Michael, I hope you can see how I may be a little dubious about parting out money for the paid version given its history, however I think it is a great addon and brings a level of support to a site that is lacking on many especially given the limited help info to users in the current XF Help section.
Although it would take a lot of work, this addon allows you to create all the FAQs that users need like "How to add an attachment", "How to create a post" etc etc etc so top marks Michael and thanks for releasing it.
One question...has anyone incorporated this into the XF Help system/pages...if so how have you done it...out of interest?
First of let me say Maria Christeris and Me are not the same people i took this microsupport system over from Maria as he was not well.
Next the main reason support on vb.org has stopped is that im so busy with updating and maintaining these script and doing private work.
For any free versions support is limited and in many add-ons will stop not only with my free versions but other developers as well will stop supporting free versions.
The support system for xf has come along way from the vb version and the reason for this is that vb keeps changing there code all the time and this is a massive pain for developers like my self.
I have seen alot of vb developers come away from vb as they are changing the code almost every month.
A developer has no problem updating there scripts if the changes are small and do not need the to completly re-right there script from the start as the vb code has changed that much.
I have seen alot of vb add-ons moving away from vb and being made for other systems as these developers are trying to move away from vb.
I also know alot of vb forum owners are also moving away from vb coz of the same reason.
