In the past I got a plenty of feedback regarding my Westors Elgg Manager plugin. In the hit list of the most recommended plugins this tool is in the top ten (~ 10.000 downloads).
I am a professional software developer and I have fo be payed for my work as you are for your work.
I tryed to split up a professional verson of this program, but unfortuantly not many people payed.
I know, this is a very useful tool for admins to manage their users, groups etc. On the aother hand it helps users, to get more comfortable with messaging with community members and outside to external users and friends they have.
I don't want to see the plugin die, therefore now I try to collect the development costs for the next release by a kind of crowdfunding.
Next Development Steps:
Ideas for Steps behind the next release. New funding is needed, to go on, but here are some ideas:
- Extend the messaging system to a newsletter system eg to send messages to a special group or to a selection of groups, track the clicks, manage drafts, use variables for idividual postings (serial letter) etc.
- find spam in your community and suggest to delete it (search for several suspecting hints, like the amount of postings per user in a short time frame or posting with a plenty of links inside or blog entries with special keywords. There should be a functionality to delete the content and to block the user(s) with one step
- improve the messaging system to display the messages with one contact in a userfriendly history
- protect your users from spam: limit sending of emails by a timeframe / a number of users
Please go to the Homepage and make a donation. Thank you!
Supporters with 90 $ and above will be named at this website and provided with a link (this is a PR 5 Page!). If the minimum limit for the next step will not be reached, no development will start. Also it's not possible to pay the money back to you.
Please note: Further project development has stopped.
